Your floor may be suffering from an uneven surface or damaged surface. These are just two of the popular reasons floor screeding is required. People always attempt to hide the issue and something like a floor can be an issue ignored for a long period of time especially for businesses that have the same people in once or twice who may not notice the issue. There is also the high probability of homeowners or business owners having little knowledge of how floor screeding actually works and how it can benefit all homes and businesses by improving the quality of flooring throughout.

Basically, traditional Floor Screed is a mixture made up from a combination of cement and sharp sand that when it is laid will create a perfectly flat surface. The process has much more to it than the simple trowelling of the mixture and the perfect laying of the materials will lead to the perfect surface for many years.

Floorscreeding is the best way to achieve a smooth, flat and durable surface for any type of floor. FloorScreeders are able to provide floor screed which is suitable for small self-build jobs right up to the largest scale commercial floors. Depending on your surface and purpose of your building will depend on the type of screed used and how long it will take to be fully accessible again. It is typically between 2 and 7 days before full foot traffic is allowed on the surface to give the floor ample time to set and give you a long lasting, level and durable surface for many years to come.

With floor screeding there is also the opportunity to invest in underfloor heating, this may seem like a luxury but it is in fact affordable for wherever you plan on investing in floor screeding. You will be able to have an even temperature throughout your space which can improve comfort especially in colder months of the year for anyone who needs to use the building. Floor screed will then be laid over the top of an underfloor heating system and you may want to look into a complete package which includes Levelling Screeds and an underfloor heating system.

There are different types of screed including traditional screed, sand and cement screed, liquid screed and self-levelling screed.  Self-levelling screed is the fastest to be laid and less labour intensive than traditional screed whilst being more suited for heavy traffic areas such as schools, business offices or public buildings.

Floor screeding is not something to be taken lightly and you need to employ an installer with a history of successful completed jobs in the field. You can carry this sort of improvement out yourself providing you have the right knowledge to carry out such a large job.
