What is Floor Screed?
Floor screed is a cement-like material which is used for flooring, and is usually made from a compound of actual cement, sharp sands and fine aggregates. The layer is then usually added to a concrete subfloor.
The Benefits of Floor Screeding in Macclesfield
You may be surprised to discover a number of previously unconsidered benefits when you choose to install screed flooring for a property in Macclesfield. We would suggest that the most important of these is that using screed will result in a smoother, more level finish for your intended floor than would be available using only concrete or cement. This will make it suitable to use as a base for anything you have planned next, from tiling, to carpeting, to putting down floorboards.
You may even consider leaving the screed exposed, if you are carrying out work on an industrial or commercial site, such as a factory or a warehouse. Level finishes minimise the risk of tripping and other accidents, and their compounds mean they are more imperishable than concrete and cement as well. As such, they will also remain excellent value for money because they will need less maintenance than other floor types.
All screed types make fantastic conductors of heat, as they don’t leave gaps or air pockets in floors when they are installed. This often means they will be installed alongside underfloor heating systems, in order to make the most of the possible heat transfer. We are also more than prepared and equipped to install underfloor heating alongside your screed, so if this is something you would like, please get in touch with us.
How We Screed Your Floors
How we carry out our screed service will all depend on the type of screed you wish to have installed. Each floor finish will come with its own particular benefits and some are more suited to specific project types, so you may think of choosing one over the other for your own build in Macclesfield.
Also known as “dry screed”, traditional screed is made of a sand and cement compound that is laid by hand, by our own trained and qualified contractors. The work is carried out by dividing your chosen floor into sections and then applying the material. To smooth it out, a screed bar or rail will be used.
In most cases, this screed type should have a drying time of about a week, with the finished result being a durable, even floor that can withstand high levels of foot traffic and that will remain easily-cleaned and maintained for many years to come.
These types of screed may also be known as “flow screed” or “flowing screeds”, owing to the fact that they can be poured into the space that you are intending to build or renovate. It may also be of interest to note that as these are self-compacting and self-levelling screeds, they can give you back time that might have been lost on using a traditional variety.
All our specialist team will have to do is supply, deliver and pour out any ready-mixed liquid screed purchase, and the compound materials will harden by themselves to create the level, hardwearing floor you need to complete your project.
Liquid screeds are often ready to walk on between 24 and 48 hours after they have been installed (with a full drying time of 40 days). So, just imagine how much more time you will have to spend on the rest of your project and how cost-effective this may become, if you can have your floor installed in under half the time it might have taken.
