Wobbly Floors Have A Need For Screed
Floorscreeding is the best way to achieve a smooth, flat and durable surface whether you are planning on screeding a residential or commercial property.
When you are at home or at work and you notice that the floor is uneven, maybe through the momentum when you walk across the floor or the way that furniture sits on the floor, you know that the floor is not quite as it should be. Laying carpet or flooring onto an uneven floor is just going to attempt to hide the issue without properly addressing it and preventing future issues. The process used to reinvent a floor surface and make sure you remove any health and safety hazards as well as aesthetically making it a better place to keep furniture, is floorcreeding. A combination of cement and sharp sand makes up screed that when it is laid will create a perfectly flat surface.
There are a lot of different things to consider when it comes to floor screeding and it requires an experienced professional to undertake a screeding task.
