What makes a good concrete slab?
Not all concrete slabs are alike. Here’s what makes a slab of concrete good, and the type of slabs our contractors pour at L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc.:
Smart slab design.
Design details such as slab thickness, reinforcement, formwork and finishing must be responsive to site conditions and to end-use requirements.
Characteristics such as strength, slump, curing time and resistance to freezing are important considerations in many concrete slab construction projects. The concrete supplier achieves specific batch requirements by varying the ratio of mix ingredients and utilizing different additives. But this only happens when there’s good communication between the concrete slab contractor and the concrete supplier.
From excavation and form construction to placement, finishing and final site cleanup, it makes a huge difference when skilled workers are doing the work of pouring concrete slabs.
At L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc., we take pride in the high level of craftsmanship that goes into every job, and especially our concrete slabs.
Concrete slab pouring
A good concrete slab can be necessary for anything from a patio to an industrial complex.
Concrete slabs are expected to support a variety of weights and different types of objects and materials, so every step of the installation process must be handled with care.
L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc. will be with you every step of the way to ensure that your concrete is poured and cured without any complications.
Our professionals know how to install even, sturdy concrete that's resistant to cracks and settlement. We'll help you create a concrete slab that will last for years to come by following these four steps:
Preparing the sub base
Pouring a concrete slab generally starts with preparing the sub base to ensure it is cleared and compacted. We need to ensure the base will properly support the weight of the concrete slab to come.
Setting the form
The form is set next, which will contain and shape the concrete slab. We typically construct this form from wood.
Pouring the concrete
Concrete is poured into the form and the finishing process of smoothing out or texturing the concrete slab begins.
Curing the slab
Finally, the last step of pouring a concrete slab is letting it cure, or dry, until it’s ready for use. Our experts will advise on how long it will need to cure and when it should be ready.
