Floor screed should not be confused with cement. Floor screed is a thin layer that is usually poured over a base floor to help to form a smooth floor coating – this will provide a strong foundation for the flooring that you would like to put on top. Floor screed is used underneath all types of flooring from hardwood to tile.

There are a few main types of screed that are created to fit specific requirement
This is most commonly used, generally it is poured over your heating pipes instead of over insulating material. The thinness of this floor screed allows for good heat flow. This is great for anyone who has under floor heating
This type of screed is applied over a layer of insulation. It is usually anywhere from 50 to 65mm thick.
This screed is put over a mechanically prepared substrate – to ensure that the substrate and the screed bond together
This is separated from the substrate via a membrane.
Generally, after laying down screed it needs time to dry and a resting period before it can be used for normal activities. If we apply a fast drying screed chances are that after 2 days you will be able to walk on it. However, that is not the case with all screed types. Some floor screeds require anywhere from 16 days to a month before you can proceed with any other renovations and regular activity. For more information on floor screed contact our experts.
