Step 1: On-site Preparation

We follow the same process regardless of whether it's a tiny concrete slab project or a larger one. We always begin by clearing the site for any tasks we carry out. To get started clean up any debris and clean up the site. We make sure that the materials are on site during the process of preparation. We schedule the delivery of the material prior to the start of work begins. This allows us to complete the work on time.


Step 2 - Create concrete forms and reinforce concrete slabs using steel

Once everything is clean and tidy After that, we can start to put in concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that hold concrete mix in place. Concrete forms force wet concrete to conform to a specific shape or design. Concrete reinforced with rebar can be used for bigger structures. This helps concrete surfaces become stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to simplify life. It helps ensure concrete materials are mixed properly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, concrete mixers are required to finish projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

When we're done mixing concrete and forming the slab, the concrete is then poured into the molds. It is crucial to do this carefully so that there aren't excessive air pockets while pouring concrete. Air pockets result from the mortar not being put on top of the aggregate. We make sure that the mix of concrete is evenly distributed across the form.
