What are Concrete slabs?


A concrete slab is an extremely sought-after structural element used in building construction. It is a flat, thick horizontal concrete slab used to build floors and roofs. Concrete slabs can be used to build the foundation of residential buildings, either on the soil or supporting the foundation.

Safety is a priority in all of our concrete projects. Before beginning any project, we ensure we have the proper safety equipment. Eye protection is a must, as are long sleeves, long trousers rubber boots and gloves. All of these safeguards protect us from concrete splashes that can harm our overall health and well-being.


The steps below must be strictly adhered to as part of the procedure.


Step 1: Preparation for the site

Whatever the size or large the project no matter how big or small, we will use the same method for all projects. Every project we work on starts with the preparation of the area. To begin fresh cleaning up, we dispose of any waste. As part of our preparation, we ensure that all materials are present on the job site. The transportation of materials is planned prior to when actually work can begin. This allows us the ability to begin and finish the work on time.


Step 2 Step 2: Reinforce concrete slabs with steel and build concrete forms

Once the site is clean and ready, we proceed with the installation of concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that help to hold the concrete mix in the right place. It makes concrete form solid and holds the concrete mix in place. Rebar is used to strengthen concrete structures that are larger. This helps ensure stronger concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to make life easier. It also helps in ensuring that concrete materials are properly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. In most cases, however we employ the concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete we pour a concrete slab into the molds. It's important that we do the concrete mix with care to avoid air pockets. Air pockets can be created by too little mortar being used in the spaces around the aggregate. We make sure that the mix of concrete is evenly distributed across the form.
