Pour a Concrete Slab
Before the concrete is delivered to your home, carefully read this step-by-step guide for successful results.
Move the concrete screed.
Have the shoveler spread the concrete until it is even with, or slightly above, the top of the form boards.
Set a straight 2 by 4 on the form board and on the temporary screed guide and work with a helper to screed the concrete by dragging the 2 by 4 across the surface. It may help to move the board in a sawing motion as you pull it.
Where the concrete is low, sprinkle on small amounts of concrete with a shovel, and then screed again.
