Succeed With Screed And Get What You Need
Many people take the quality of floors for granted and do not suspect that they will ever need to assess the need for floor screeding.
Regardless of the purpose a room a room serves it is vital that it has a secure, stable and level floor. Many people take the quality of floors for granted and do not suspect that they will ever need to assess the need for floor screeding. The process of floor screeding sounds pretty simple on the surface however it requires a high level of skill.
The right level of quality for a finished floor that has been screeded can massively improve the surface. A screed which does not match up to the required quality can leave you with a large bill and job to get someone to rectify the initial mistakes so getting the right installers initially or knowing what you are doing is very important before deciding to get floor screeding underway.
There are options to install underfloor heating screed and have a comfortable level of heat running through your new floor to give you a warm floor so there is a pleasant level of heat in the winter months. The underfloor heating packages can be laid underneath the screed and does not compromise the quality of flooring you will receive.
There are many different options which will vary in suitability for your home or property. The self-levelling, orfloating screed is easier on the man hours and will require less labour in terms of levelling the screed as it has the ability to do most of the work itself once laid properly.
Floor coverings can be applied on top of the screed surface once it has been given the proper amount of time to set properly. It is also recommended for purposes that require durability for withstanding high foot fall such as public places to be covered suitably.
Traditional dry screed requires attention to detail and by employing the right installer you should get a perfectly level surface from the combination of cement and sand screed. The screed is factory mixed to give self-builders the relieved stress of getting the mixture perfect and can be applied to floors and roofing applications.
The screed itself remains workable for up to 8-12 hours and is ready for light foot traffic after just 48 hours. It is ready for full traffic for whatever purposes after around 7 days. Using dry screed also opens the doors of possibly adding underfloor heating for more comfort.
When considering floor screeding you have to consider the purpose your space serves before selecting the screed you are using and then find a suitable installer with a track record of high quality past experience.
