What are Concrete Slabs?


Concrete slabs make up a large part of the construction elements of buildings. A concrete slab is a thin, flat, horizontal concrete surface which is used to construct a floor or roof. More so concrete slabs are utilized for the construction of the ground floors of many residential structures to support the foundation, or directly on the soil.

Eye protection, long sleeves and long pants, rubber boots gloves and gloves form components of our safety equipment. All of them protect us from concrete splashes.


Follow these steps as well.


Step 1: Preparation for the Site

Whatever small or big the project is, we follow the same process. Every project we work on starts by preparing the area. We tidy up and remove all waste so that it is possible to start again. We make sure that the materials are on site during the process of preparation. We plan the delivery of the materials prior to the time we begin the actual work. This lets us begin and complete the project in a a timely manner.


Step 2: Make Concrete Forms and reinforce Concrete Slabs using Steel

Once the site is cleaned up, we install concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms are sturdy barriers that help hold concrete mix in the right place. They create solid and holds the concrete mix. To strengthen concrete, we use reinforced concrete by using Rebar. This helps ensure stronger concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To facilitate the process, we use a concrete truck. It also assists in ensuring concrete materials are mixed correctly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is required for the majority of projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete, we pour it into the molds. It is essential to take care that there are not too many air pockets when pouring concrete. Air pockets can be caused by the mortar not being fully filled with aggregate. When we pour concrete, it is essential that we distribute the mix evenly across the form - never missing one spot.
