What are Concrete slabs?


A concrete slab is an extremely popular structural component for buildings. Concrete slabs are a thick, flat and horizontal concrete layer that is used as a floor, or even as roofing. Concrete slabs, laid on top of the soil or on foundations for support which are used to construct the foundation for certain residential buildings.

Safety is a paramount concern in all of our concrete projects. Before starting any project, we make sure we equip ourselves with safety gear. We have gloves and long sleeves, as well as long pants, and rubber boots. All these protections protect us from concrete splashes that can harm our overall health and well being.


These steps are followed in addition.


Step 1: On-site Preparation

The same method is used regardless of whether we are working on a small slab or huge project. We always begin by clearing the site for all the projects we do. We tidy up and get rid of garbage so we can begin on a clean slate. As part of our pre-planning, we ensure that all materials are present at the location. We schedule the arrival of the materials prior to the actual project begins. This helps us complete the project within the timeframe we have set.


Step 2: Build concrete forms and reinforce concrete slabs using steel

Once everything is neat and tidy After that, we can start to put in concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms work as a solid barrier to keep the concrete mix in its place. Concrete forms force wet concrete to take on a particular shape or design. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete in larger structures. This makes concrete stronger surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks make life easier. It also assists in ensuring concrete materials are mixed properly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, concrete mixers are required to finish projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once we've mixed the concrete, we immediately pour the concrete slab into our forms. It's crucial that we make the concrete mix carefully to prevent air pockets. The existence of air pockets results from there being insufficient mortar to fill the gaps around the aggregate. As we pour concrete, we ensure that we evenly distribute the mix across the form - never missing a single spot.
