Traditional Floor Screed Advice

Standard cement / sand screeds are a layer of material laid in situ and consist of bonded, unbonded, floating and heated construction. The screeding system is used for obtaining a defined level to receive final floor coverings such as ceramics, stone, carpet, linoleum, wood flooring, etc

How quickly do you need to use your floor once the floor screeding has been completed? Most standard screeds (based on a typical 75mm depth) can take as long as 110 days to dry – far too long for most homeowners looking to complete their home improvement projects without too much delay.

But you don’t have to wait ages. You see, we use accelerated floor screeds, which dramatically reduces the time it takes for your floor screeding to be dry enough for the installation of floor finishes such as tiles, carpets or wooden flooring in as little as 24 hours
