A Concrete Slab

When it comes to installing or replacing new or broken pieces of concrete floor better known as concrete slab; we are the go to guys. Here at Bernardo we have over twenty years and counting of experience in the concrete business. Even when establishing something as simple as a concrete slab there is a lot more that a person is unaware of that needs to be done. We have the technique and skills it takes to professionally install or replace any type of construction work a customer requests by us.

You might think that all it takes to construct a concrete slab is some cement and tools; however, there is a lot of little details necessary in creating a correct concrete slab. We always make sure we thoroughly go through the plans for any construction job so that we become well acquainted with the area and know exactly what needs to be done.

Getting Down to The Basic Structure of a Concrete Slab

The base of a concrete slab involves 2 x 4 wooden planks used to mark off the area where the cement is poured. After the perimeter is established we can then bring in the cement truck and being the process of pouring all the cement needed for the area. At this point the construction is based on our expertise and technique. It requires us to know exactly how to form the concrete slab so that the cement is evenly distributed throughout the area. Once that is done we use our different techniques and tools to smooth out the surface  so that we create what everyone sees simply as a concrete slab.

Machine Warehouse in Long Beach gets Concrete Repair

Our customer at Cavanaugh Machine Works hired us at B.C.I to repair a concrete slab in their machine operating warehouse. Cavanaugh Machine Works provides ship repairs along with other services. They needed to replace a 9′ x 12′ area of 6″ concrete slab in order to operate a piece of machinery on the surface. We were hired as their concrete repair contractor because they knew we could handle a job like this. Here at Bernardo we know exactly what needs to be done for any concrete repair or concrete construction project. We take pride in all the work we accomplish for any of our customers.

Working to Complete This Concrete Repair

First we saw cut and demo out the area that was to be repaired in order for this concrete slab to be able to withstand the heavy machinery operating on it. After the slab was removed we used our bobcats to dig approximately 21″ for the new 27″ slab.secure we were able to pour the cement for the new concrete slab. For this type of slab we also had to input expansion paper along the edge of the new concrete slab where it meets with the existing concrete slab. This is also used to support a concrete slab. Expansion paper looks often similar to a piece of plywood but is actually made up of  fiber and asphalt compounds.
