What are concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs can be used as a structural element for buildings. It is a thick flat, horizontal concrete surface that is typically used as the floor or roof. Concrete slabs that are laid on top of the soil or on foundations supporting them and are used to build the ground floor for some homes.

These protect us against concrete splashes that can affect our health and well-being.


We follow these steps also.


Step 1 - Onsite Preparation

The same method is used regardless of whether we're working on a tiny slab or large project. The first step is to prepare the site for any tasks we carry out. Before we begin clean up any debris and clean up the site. As part the preparation process it is essential that all the necessary materials are on-site. We schedule the arrival of the material prior to the start of work. This ensures that we can complete the project within the timeline we have established.


Step 2: Reinforce concrete slab with steel, and then construct concrete forms

When the area is clean and ready, we move on with the construction of concrete forms by using wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers holding concrete mix in the right place. Concrete forms force concrete to adopt a certain shape or form. In the case of larger structures, we employ Rebar to strengthen concrete. This allows for more durable concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To make it easier for us, we utilize the concrete truck. This ensures the concrete material is properly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. Most of the time, however we make use of the concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing the concrete and forming the slab, the concrete is poured into the form. It is essential to do this carefully so that there are not excessive air pockets while pouring concrete. Air pockets can form when there is not enough mortar available to fill the gaps around the aggregate. Concrete is made by ensuring that the mortar is evenly distributed throughout the form.
