A new year is synonymous with new beginnings.

After spending the festive season with loved ones, exchanging gifts, hosting (and attending) Christmas parties, and indulging in delicious treats, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the past 12 months and make New Year’s resolutions.

But with the promise of a fresh start, you’re likely to feel more motivated to crack on with those jobs you’ve been putting off for a while, too – like improving your home’s flooring.

So,  whether you’re tired of the way it looks, or you’ve noticed your floors aren’t level, JCW Floor Screeding can help.

Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why you should enlist the expertise of our screed teams in 2024 and beyond.


What are the benefits of floor screeding?


1.    Enhance the safety of your floors

Uneven floors pose a serious risk of slips, trips, stumbles, and falls – resulting in broken bones, fractures, bruises, and abrasions.

If there are any bumps or cracks in your floors, our traditional sand and cement floor screeds can help to level them out – making it easier, safer, and more comfortable for you, your household and any visitors to walk on.


2.    Ensure a bump-free finish

Whether you’ve got plans to install new carpet, laminate, vinyl, tile, or stone flooring, you want to trust that the subfloor is flat – and our screeders can do just that by applying a thin layer of floor screed over the top!

Before we screed a floor, though, we’ll always make sure that dirt, dust, and debris have been removed to allow the cementitious mixture to settle properly without any bumps forming.


3.    Improve your home’s energy efficiency

Although our sand and cement screeds offer a smoother texture for floor coverings to be laid atop, some of them contain polypropylene fibres which are great for covering underfloor heating pipes.

When applied at the correct thickness, these make sure that heat is distributed evenly throughout the room – eliminating any uncomfortable hot or cold spots and saving you money on your energy bills.


4.    Prolong the lifespan of your floors

Floors that aren’t level can affect structural integrity when a final floor covering is installed, which is where our floor screeds come in useful.

Our sand and cement screed is resistant to scratches and scuffs and can also protect the subfloor against impact from constant use and heavy foot traffic, allowing your new flooring to look great for years to come!


5.    Achieve an industrial aesthetic

Though screed can be used to prepare your subfloor for a new covering, it can also be used as the final layer.

When left bare, floor screeds can offer a more industrial feel. Or, if you wish, you can put a decorative spin on things by directly painting the cementitious mixture or stamping it with a pattern whilst it’s curing. Whatever look you have in mind, our expert screeders will be able to advise on the best way to achieve it, that’s for sure!
