Concrete Slab How To Part 4 Video
Hi, I'm Tim Carter from AsktheBuilder.com and I want to show you, as they continue to pour the slab, an important thing. Look at this. The entire half of the slab is now screeded. But in one corner there is not concrete. Why do you think there isn't any concrete there?
The reason why is the last thing you want to do is to put too much concrete in the area or hole. If you do, you will have to shovel the excess concrete out of the slab. But if you take your time and work with the truck driver, you can make sure that there is just enough concrete down where it is needed. In this case, they are now filling in the last section.
Keep in mind, you are going to work hard enough as it is putting the concrete down. You don't need to be shoveling extra concrete out of the hole. So screed as you go to be sure there is just enough concrete in the area. It's as simple as that.
