Liquid Screed Devon

Liquid Screed Devon

Liquid Screed flooring is a well-blended mixture of ordinary cement with water and quality aggregates, which can be applied to the base of a floor for a quality and diverse finish for many different flooring projects.

Screeding is normally carried out to craft a smooth, sturdy sub-floor, which is capable of withstanding the final floor finish. It can be left as laid, used above underfloor heating, or covered with any type of flooring, from carpet to tiling.

Irrespective of how simple the procedure may sound, there is more to it than just trowelling on the sand and cement mixture. When optimally laid, it ensures an increase in the lifespan and quality, as well as the longevity of your entire floor.

However, poorly laid screed can end up costing you a lot more in the long run, potentially causing major structural concerns, which is why it’s crucial to ensure you’re working with trusted professionals.

Understanding Liquid Screed, Devon

Also known as flowing screed, liquid screed is used as an alternative to the traditional sand and cement mixture.

When flooring is directly laid onto ordinary cement, the end result is usually a bumpy floor, reflecting imperfections in the cement. However, at Liquid Screed we use liquid screed along with our professional skills and expertise to craft an even, levelled surface prior to laying the final floor, giving it a professional finish.

Because of its cost-efficiency, exceptional thermal conductivity and diversity, Liquid Screed is an increasingly popular option for underfloor heating for both residential and commercial projects in Devon and throughout the rest of the country.

However, these are the perfect solution for industrial premises which have to attain a levelled surface for safety reasons.

If your project has a tight deadline, fast drying screed is the ideal option. It does not comprise of any water, and is instead a much drier consistency than other types of concrete, needing only time to set. Fast drying screed can be ready in just three days, limiting the overall floor project time massively, and also reducing the amount of time the premise is out of use.

Underfloor heating has been around since Roman times, but the concepts which have allowed it to be used efficiently in homes and businesses is a fairly recent phenomenon.

Liquid Screed Brighton recommend the following are just a few of the benefits of underfloor heating:

Comfort

One of the main benefits of underfloor heating is the comfort it provides in a home or workplace. The heat which is produced by underfloor heating is radiative, meaning that it provides maximum comfort and consistent warmth throughout a room or building.

This is opposed to the conventional heating system using radiators, which create convection currents, causing heat to be wasted. It is also particularly easy to regulate temperatures using an underfloor heating system, meaning that you will never be too cold or hot in the premise.

Health benefits

Underfloor heating has significant health benefits as opposed to the usual heating methods with radiators.

Health conditions such as asthma and allergies are less prevalent in buildings which have underfloor heating systems.

This is because the heat produced does not create convection currents which tend to move allergens and dust around the room.

Maintenance

When underfloor heating is laid by professionals at Liquid Screed Brighton, the specialists ensure that the system is installed to the highest standard, considering and correcting any initial piping problems, thus maintenance thereafter will be absolutely minimal.

Safety

Underfloor heating systems also have the benefit of using a lower, more consistent heat to warm up a room or building.

Liquid Screed Brighton highly recommend this heating solution for safety reasons, particularly where children and vulnerable people may be susceptible to burns on usual heating systems which involve hot exposed pipes and radiators.

Cost Efficiency

Although the installation of underfloor heating entails the initial investment cost, the efficiency of this type of heating is substantially more cost effective than other heating solutions in the long term.

This is because the water used to heat the premise does not need to be as hot as it would need to be for another heating system, making bills considerably lower.

The Process of Applying Liquid Screed

Liquid Floor Screed BrightonWith much experience and knowledge in the flooring industry, Liquid Screed Brighton have perfected the application process of a liquid screed floor, to ensure that a perfect result is obtained every time.

Liquid Screed Northampton Branch

Liquid Screed Northampton

As more and more people are installing underfloor heating systems in Northampton, it is important to understand how it all works.

What is underfloor heating?

Liquid Screed Northampton explains underfloor heating as a system that propels warm water through pipes installed under the floor.

underfloor heating systems northamptonIt is also referred to as a ‘wet’ system for underfloor heating. There is another system that can be installed by using electric coils which are strategically placed under the floor and it is known as a ‘dry’ system.

The basic principle of heat rising from a lower altitude to a higher altitude is taken advantage of and this concept of heat propagation is utilised for an even distribution of heat across a room.

Underfloor heating is the oldest type of central heating. It took inspiration from underfloor heating that the Romans used which was known as hypocausts.

These hypocausts were used for heating solutions in buildings and bathings. Today, in the UK underfloor heating has gained popularity in homes and businesses alike. Thus, Liquid Screed Northampton is here to cater to your needs with a range of equipment suitable for your premise.

Does underfloor heating contribute towards saving energy?

This will completely depend on how well the insulation of the building or premise is; the effectiveness of the heating system and its coverage area.

Commercial premises with high occupancy are more likely to experience efficiency gains from underfloor heating as it is most effective with periods of constant occupancy, and also because larger heating requirements automatically reduce the capital costs of an underfloor heating system.

Liquid Screed Northampton provides underfloor heating solutions and advice to clients depending upon the area of the premise that they require the system for so that it is easier on their budgets.

How much does it cost?

Liquid Screed Northampton will provide detailed information pertaining to the costs involved in the installation of underfloor heating. A wet underfloor heating system will cost about a third more than a radiator system on average.

Liquid Screed NorthamptonThis is inclusive of the fact that additional insulation is likely to be added below the newly fixed pipe network.

If an underfloor heating system is installed at the time of building a new project or while undertaking major renovation, its installation costs will be reduced substantially.

Electric or ‘dry’ underfloor heating usually costs less where installation is concerned, but is more expensive to maintain.

Dual storage underfloor heaters are also available and they comprise of two sets of pipes and an extra thick layer of screed so they acquire most of their running energy from cheaper night-time tariffs. This, at times may not be cost-effective.

How to determine if underfloor heating is suitable for a premise?

Wet underfloor heating system is suitable for premises that are adequately insulated. Underfloor systems function at a relatively lower temperature than most radiator systems.

Owing to a low temperature functioning, underfloor heating is most efficient as they work constantly, but at a lower temperature.

What is it like living with underfloor heating from Liquid Screed Northampton?

Underfloor heating systems take quite a bit of time to provide heat. So, after you turn it on, you will have to wait for a bit to experience optimum distribution of heat over the expanse of the room.

It can be effectively used where it can be left switched on, on a continuous basis. Electric underfloor heating systems are more responsive, but are more expensive to operate.

Underfloor heating delivers a consistent temperature with a more even distribution of heat emanating from the bottom of the room. Radiators spread warm air through the room but less at the bottom of the room which is why underfloor heating system is preferable in this regard.

underfloor heating northamptonLiquid Screed Northampton offers underfloor heating that will evenly distribute warm air across a room more at the bottom and top space rather than in the middle.

Opting for underfloor heating over radiators from Liquid Screed Northampton will also allow you more space.

Although, you will need to be mindful to not place furniture items such as wardrobes or cupboards above the heat coils as they can easily be damaged because of the direct exposure and constant passage of heat.

Heating bathrooms is harder as baths tend to occupy a substantial floor space, but it will help if you have claw-foot tubs that will allow heating more easily.

Can underfloor heating be suitable for a retrofit?

Liquid Screed Northampton gives you the option to retrofit underfloor heating. You will have to raise the floor a bit and adjust the door accordingly.

Retrofitting concrete floors is usually difficult whereas suspended timber floors are easier to retrofit. Electric systems are generally slighter and simpler to install in a retrofit wherever there is not much space to raise the floor.

Is installation of a new boiler necessary?

It is best to install condensing boiler for a gas powered system which is more effective for low temperature heating which incidentally includes underfloor heating.

Underfloor heating from Liquid Screed Northampton can also be connected to a thermal store and works well with heat pumps.

What type of flooring is compatible with underfloor heating?

Underfloor heating is commonly installed with ceramic, terracotta, stone or tile floors but can also be installed with wood, carpet or linoleum.

When installing underfloor heating with wood, you will need to keep in mind that wood will naturally expand and contract with changes in heat and moisture more than stone or ceramic tiles would.

This can be commonly addressed by installing floating wood boards on a layer of polythene foam that allows slight movement.

Using Professionals to Install Underfloor Heating

Liquid Screed Northampton provides installation services for a wet underfloor heating system as experienced professionals. Depending upon the area of the floor space to be covered, the period of installation may vary.

Does underfloor heating system have to be installed with screed?

Liquid Screed Northampton commonly undertakes installation of underfloor heating systems with a layer of screed poured on the top to create a levelled and even surface on which the finishing floor can be laid.

liquid floor screed northamptonIn case of suspended floors, it is possible to install the system without screed; this is known as ‘dry installation’ and cannot be confused with dry or electric system.

This can be done using screed replacement tiles which are combined in order to make a level and floating floor. This method of installation will be preferable if you want to avoid extra moisture in the premise. There is less wait time involved and the floor can be walked upon sooner rather than later.

Liquid Screed Cornwall Branch

Liquid Screed Cornwall

Liquid Screed is the modern-day alternative to traditional sand and cement screed.  It is designed to provide a smooth level surface in both domestic and commercial buildings prior to the layering of the final floor finishes.

Liquid screed is becoming an increasingly popular choice for use with underfloor heating due to its excellent thermal conductivity and cost-efficiency.

Here at Liquid Screed Cornwall, we possess a wealth of expertise and have the ability to provide exceptional liquid screed and underfloor heating solutions across Cornwall and its surrounding areas.

Liquid screed cornwallAt Liquid Screed Cornwall, we evaluate the projects depending on the requirements of our clients and provide floor screed solutions with exceptional underfloor heating services.

If you are a homeowner or a business owner intending to renovate to make your home or offices warmer, healthier and more energy efficient for your family or employees, you should consider using liquid screed along with underfloor heating systems in your floor renovation works.

What is Underfloor Heating?

Underfloor heating is a heating system that is installed beneath the floor finishes which transfer heat to the floor space within a room. The heating system consists of a network of pipes installed beneath the floor and a control system.

The temperature can also be controlled through a control system to provide continual, efficient and comfortable heating distributed throughout the room.

How does an Underfloor Heating System Work?

An underfloor heating system releases heat by gently warming water which circulate in pipes installed within the floor construction. The water is heated via heat pumps.

If your floor heating system detects that a rise in the temperature is required through its thermostatic control, additional heat is passed through a manifold where it circulates evenly before passing once again through the pipes.

underfloor heating cornwallThe end result is a warm and comfortable environment which maximises living space because the room will be free of radiators and pipe work as the whole system stays hidden under the floor finishes with Liquid Screed throughout Cornwall home floors.

At Liquid Screed Cornwall, we use state of the art techniques while installing underfloor heating for our clients. Our underfloor heating system is based on the use of very high-quality piping, and a well-thought out structure system designed as per the specification of project requirements.

Why Choose Liquid Screed Cornwall for Underfloor Heating?

Liquid screed is a thinner mixture compared to the typical concrete and sand mixture. This means that it can be laid as a thin layer over UFH (underfloor heating) without causing obstruction in the instalment of the system.

underfloor heating systems cornwallUnderfloor heating systems work more effectively at lower heat. Liquid screed attributes in keeping the system at less heated due to its thin nature, and UFH works efficiently due to its closer proximity to the surface.

Liquid screed is also a good conductor of heat, making it the best screed to be laid on top of the underfloor heating system.

Apart from these qualities, Liquid Screed makes the ground even and levelled for the final finishes to look professional and aesthetically pleasing.

At Liquid Screed Cornwall, we have the best knowledge to optimise the liquid screed flooring to ensure that it is at optimum usability along with underfloor heating systems installed by us.

Health Benefits of an Underfloor Heating System

Apart from fulfilling heating needs, underfloor heating offers many other benefits as well. Health benefits are often overlooked while researching the types of liquid screed and heating systems. The decision of installing Underfloor heating system while getting your floor work done can prove to be beneficial to your health in the long run.

Here are a few health benefits of installing Underfloor heating with Liquid Screed in Cornwall:

Keeps the air dust-free

The biggest health benefit that can be achieved by having underfloor heating system installed is the reduction in respiratory problems. UFH systems do not use convection currents to warm a home opposed to the traditional wall radiators.

Convection currents move in a circular motion to warm the room and in this process; they capture and redistribute dust particles in the room. These dust particles floating freely in the air which makes them far easier for the home residents to breathe dust in. It can worsen the conditions of the ones who suffer from asthma or other respiratory problems.

However, warming the room gently via underfloor heating system ensures that there is far less air movement for the dust particles to get caught up and so your family is less likely to inhale dust as they breathe.

Prohibits dust mites from growing

Homes that are heated by traditional radiators will often have cold floor areas with raised levels of humidity nurturing dust mites.

Using UFH lessens the amount of moisture in your carpets or floor finishes and it is this moisture that the dust mite needs to survive and grow.

According to a recent survey, in the UK alone, there are currently 5.4 million people who are currently receiving treatment for Asthma, with 1.1 million of those being children.

Of those, about 90% say that dust mites are a trigger for their condition, so it makes sense to do all that we can to keep the dust mites bay.

Installing an underfloor heating system lowers the number of dust mites in your home by up to 80%.

Assists in preventing joint pain

The people who suffer from arthritis will also find Underfloor Heating to be extremely beneficial. The colder months can be harsh on the people who suffer from joint pain, and many believe that periods of high humidity and low barometric pressure can worsen symptoms considerably.

Being in contact with a constant heat source such as UFH installed with Liquid screed in Cornwall home floor is thought to relieve some of the pain felt by sufferers, especially those with arthritis in their legs, feet or ankles.

Safety from burns

Although not directly a health issue, there’s also the fact that traditional radiators can pose risks of burns.

Liquid floor screed cornwallThis is particularly true for both the very young and the elderly members of your family.

Radiators can become extremely hot and there is always a risk of burning if there isn’t a sufficient guard in place.

Many care homes are now doing away with radiators altogether and installing underfloor heating systems while renovating their establishments with Liquid screed Cornwall in order to protect their residents, chiefly those who are living with dementia.

The health benefits of underfloor heating are evident, but they are often seen as a secondary consideration to things such as cost. However, considering its long term benefits, it is highly cost-effective option to keep your home or offices warmer, healthier and safer.

Also, we at Liquid screed Cornwall evaluate each project keeping the client budget and time constraints in mind and delivers exceptional services of liquid screed solutions and underfloor heating solutions.

Liquid Screed Reading Branch

Liquid Screed Reading

Liquid screed specialises in floor screed and underfloor heating, providing their professional services in Reading and the surrounding areas. We offer an efficient, friendly and quality liquid screed service for homes and businesses, from a small-scale room renovation in a family home to UK wide developers.

liquidscreed readingLiquid Screed Reading are experts in quality flooring options, with multiple advances to other types of flooring solutions. Liquid screed is superior to the traditional sand and cement mixture, because it is of a thinner consistency which means that the screed will be easier to pour, will even out more easily, and has a faster drying time, making for an overall more efficient process.

Liquid screed is also the most ecological and compatible option for underfloor heating, because of its incredibly conductive properties. At Liquid Screed, we also specialise in underfloor heating making it possible for you to find all your flooring solutions in one place: Liquid Screed in Reading.

If you have acquired a place in Reading for either a commercial or residential purpose, it is best to work towards making it as strong as possible as a structure’s core has to be well-built so as to stand strong for a longer period of time. To make this happen, you need strong application of Liquid Screed Reading for every property that you wish to erect or renovate.

liquid floor screed readingIf you have ever tried to position a floor atop an uneven surface, you will know how difficult it can be.

This makes it important for screed to be laid first so you have an even and flat surface to work on. Liquid Screed Reading is used to form the top layer of the subfloor to give a more even base on which to lay the flooring of your choice, for instance tiles, laminate, carpet, solid wood etc.

The Liquid Screed Reading mix can also be poured over and around underfloor heating pipes. However, some of these pipes should be laid inside a channel so that they are capable of expanding and contracting without cracking the screed.

Advantages of Liquid Screed Application as Opposed to Traditional Screed

At Liquid Screed Reading, our architects and contractors prefer using a flowing or a self levelling screed as compared to the traditional mix owing to an improved end performance and the entailing cost benefits to a client. Liquid Screed understands that the combination of underfloor heating with liquid screed offers significant benefits. However, it is essential that the heating system specified has been designed for use with flowing screed.

A few advantages are listed below:

Reduced Screed Thickness

The main property of Liquid Screed Reading is that it can be laid at approximately half the thickness which is around 50mm as compared to 90mm for sand or cement screed. This results in lesser quantity of the material but a stronger and more dependable quality with a neater finish.

Faster Application

Liquid screed can be laid at a faster pace than a traditional sand and cement screed due to its thin consistency and easy application which facilitates accuracy of screed placement. Liquid screed will travel around the pipe system giving a compressed contact that would be difficult to achieve using a traditional screed mix.

Even Distribution of Heat

The close contact of the liquid screed with the heating system allows heat to distribute evenly and reach an optimum temperature more quickly. On the contrary, when the heating is switched off, the screed also cools down at a much faster pace. The heating system is thus, more responsive with liquid screed and has enhanced energy efficiency as compared to systems using traditional screed mixes.

Time Saving

Liquid Screed Reading will assist you in attaining a reduced curing time and its speedy and efficient application means that Liquid Screed contractors can save weeks assuring a speedy completion of a project. Its ability to dry and cure in a quicker manner means that the area will be available sooner to other trades and processes to continue working without any disruption.

Smooth and Even Finish

Liquid Floor Screed Contractors ReadingAs liquid flowing screed is self levelling and compacting, it provides a smoother end result with minimal lateral shrinkage owing to its calcium sulphate binding element.

At Liquid Screed Reading, when the screed application is complete and dried, it is best to seal the top layer of the screed before the final floor finish such as tile or marble is applied. This will amplify the effectiveness of screed application and preserve its longevity.

Consistency of Liquid Screed Reading

Liquid Screed Reading educates you on the availability of types of flowing or levelling screeds which are explained below:

Bonded Cement and Sand Screed

The minimum recommended thickness for bonded self-levelling screeds should be 25mm. In order to accommodate potential deviations in the completed levels of the structural concrete, the specified thickness of the consistency should normally be 40mm with a tolerance of ±15mm which will ensure minimal screed thickness with consistency of at least 25mm.

However, recommendations suggest a tolerance of ±10mm is adopted with a nominal depth of 35mm. This is aimed at minimizing the risk of debonding, but the tolerance specified for the top surface of the base concrete should be compatible.

Where the bonded screed needs to be greater than 40mm, the following options are available with Liquid Screed Reading to reduce the risk of debonding:

  • Making use of modified screed or additives to reduce the shrinkage potential
  • Making use of fine concrete screed which will decrease the shrinkage possibility of the screed, which can successfully be used up to 75mm.

The screed thickness should not be less than 50mm, therefore to allow deviations in the completed levels; the specified design consistency should be 70mm minimum. There is a high risk of screed curling with debonded and floating screeds. In order to minimize this, the screed should either be strengthened across the joints or made 100mm or thicker.

Why Choose Liquid Screed Reading for our Flooring Services?

Thinking of renovating your home or working on a national building contract? The first and most important step is to consider the quality of the flooring.

If quality is compromised whilst working on the flooring screed, it can result in future problems which you will face by bearing hefty repair costs and thousands of pounds in additional expenses. There is also a possibility of facing problems relating to structural difficulties with the premise.

Liquid Screed Banbury Branch

Liquid Screed Banbury – The Practical Choice

Banbury is catching up fast in installing the necessary underfloor heating system equipments in their premises for optimal heating solutions, thus it comes as no surprise that underfloor heating is growing in popularity.

With relatively inexpensive installation charges and little maintenance required, it is a practical choice for most to opt for underfloor heating.

Banbury ScreedIt also vacates space which is otherwise occupied by radiators and can also be installed under virtually any floor type. Liquid Screed Banbury offers underfloor heating solutions which are considered to be a more eco-friendly option when compared to radiators considering the way it heats a room.

Underfloor heating makes the lower part of the room warm first, unlike radiators which distribute heat waves from the top of the room in a descending manner.

Underfloor heating by Liquid Screed Banbury makes it comfortably warm underfoot, which can be around 25oC on an average, making the room instantly cosy.

With the added benefit of operating on a considerably lower running temperature than radiators, you can save on fuel bills, although this will also depend on the type of system you choose to install.

Types of Underfloor Heating

At Liquid Screed Banbury, we explain the two chief types of underfloor heating systems:

Hot Water or Wet Systems

Hot water system, true to its name, uses warm water much like a central heating system. At Liquid Screed Banbury, water is pumped and channelled through tiny pipes that are fixed on the subfloor of the premises which are then covered with a special heat-conducting screed.

Screed once heated, retains high temperature and distributes heat evenly across the room. Wet systems are as much as 30 percent more energy efficient compared to radiators, as they use water at a lower temperature. These can also be incorporated with your existing heating system so that you can opt for underfloor heating for some rooms and radiators for others.

On the contrary, wet systems have to conduct heat through a layer of screed and thus can take quite a bit of time to heat up, sometimes up to two hours.

They also take a longer time to cool down which is why getting the temperature right can sometimes be challenging. Liquid Screed Banbury provides wet system as a great choice if you are constructing a structure or a premise from scratch or commencing a major renovation.

This is because installing a wet system under an existing floor can be quite a hassle, as the entire floor will need to be torn down for the screed material to be poured freshly. Wet systems are not recommended for installation over small areas. Generally you can expect to pay around £25-£30 per square metre depending on the surface area to be covered.

Electric or Dry Systems

Traditional electric systems are made up of cables that resemble a wet system which are then fixed in screed. Modern versions are much thinner and easier to install and are like mesh mats or a roll of ribbon resembling a carpet underlay.

Banbury LiquidscreedThese are simply spread across the existing floor on top of an insulated board and then connected to the power supply in your room. There is no involvement of screed and they can be laid under any type of floor which may include timber or atop old flooring. Liquid Screed Banbury offers electric systems which are more economical to install than wet systems.

You can expect to pay from £15 per square metre onwards for installation. Comparatively, electric or dry systems involve lesser hassle and thus a better option in case you are not planning for a major renovation. They also tend to heat more quickly because they do not have to conduct heat through a layer of screed, thus are more responsive.

On the contrary, electric systems can be more expensive to function as compared to wet systems, as they cannot be connected to your general heating systems so you will need to set up a separate thermostat and timer.

Where Can You Use Underfloor Heating?

Need to warm flagstones in the kitchen? How about tiled bathroom floors? Underfloor heating is the perfect solution for warming up cold flooring materials in any room of your premise. Although, you must bear in mind that the thicker the stone is, the longer it will take to heat up.

Technological developments ensure that a system keeps operating at a low temperature which means that you can use underfloor heating with laminate and hardwood floors. Before you opt for installation, Liquid Screed Banbury can educate you regarding the flooring type and method of heating system as it should go hand in hand in order to avoid future repair costs.

Underfloor heating systems are up and coming in terms of development in technology and Liquid Screed Banbury makes it possible to install high quality vinyl and carpet flooring. Underfloor heating is not restricted to ground-floor use because most modern systems do not require a concrete subfloor. This makes it safe to be used above ground-floor level.

How Will Liquid Screed Banbury Assist with Installation?

Banbury Screed MaintenanceElectric systems require fixing of a flat base, generally an insulated wood board which is then rolled out and fixed with the heating mat before the floor can be laid.

Our qualified electricians at Liquid Screed Banbury will assist to set up the final connection and approve the installation process.

In case of wet system installation, a similar flat base will be required to lay the product on. On which, a specialised heat-conducting screed is poured before the floor covering can be laid. We have a team of qualified plumbers and workmen who will overlook the entire installation process and ensure smooth workflow.

Maintenance

Liquid Screed Banbury highlights one of the most important benefits of underfloor heating which is that it requires virtually no maintenance. There are no moving equipments which may cause friction and the wet systems are protected by the screed layer surrounding it. Electric systems are designed to be strong and can last for 15 years minimum. At Liquid Screed Banbury, we provide information regarding guarantees and warranties before you choose to go ahead with the installation.

Why Choose Liquid Screed Banbury?

At Liquid Screed Banbury, we offer an honest service with no hidden costs and which includes complete evaluation of your project and individual needs.

Liquid Screed provides a quality orientated installation service for your flooring and underfloor heating solutions to ensure that the end result is guaranteed to exceed your expectations.

Understanding Floor Screed

Floor Screed Bristol.jpgFloor screed constitutes of a simple mixture of water, ordinary cement and graded aggregate such as sharp sand. This mixture is used to craft a smooth, hardwearing sub-floor.

Its general thickness is about 75mm before it is ready to be laid on the floor and requires professional supervision to ensure no costly rectifications are necessary.

Depending upon the kind of premises, the screed can be covered with underlay and decorative flooring solution, for instance laminate tiles or carpet; or it can be left bare. Liquid Screed in Bristol can also be used to accommodate underfloor heating systems and to install pipe-work that will surround the premises.

Liquid screed with Underfloor Heating

Although liquid screed is a straightforward blend of materials, it is actually an essential process to ensure evenness of the floor, its durability and entailing sturdiness.

underfloor heating bristolA professional laid liquid screed in Bristol can substantially lengthen the lifespan of a floor, adding to the overall quality of the completed flooring. This can go a long way in ensuring a flat and levelled exterior shielding the sub layers from being subjected to wear and tear and premature erosion.

However, floor screed if not laid appropriately, can diminish the overall quality of the floor and can result in causing damage to the floor cover such as laminate, vinyl carpet etc. This can prove to be a costly affair if you were to bear the expenses of repairing the very core of the flooring of your premises.

Which Type of Screed is Best Suited to Your Project?

As per the suitability of the floor of a given premises, you have the liberty to experiment with different screed applications.

Traditional Screed BristolIt is best to acquire a professional opinion before arriving upon a decision on the appropriation of the varying screeds to cater to your flooring needs.

Listed below are the most common types to ensure that you make an informed decision for Liquid Screed in Bristol:

  • Traditional Screed – A standard mix of cement and sand is the idyllic final floor finish for various floor coverings which may comprise of tiles and laminates. This makes it suitable for different environments from homes and schools to hospitals and shops.
  • Self-Levelling Compounds – Self levelling or flowing screed compound differs from the standard screed mixtures. These are generally used to even out or to level the final finishing layer that provides a smooth exterior for laying the floor finishes. Self-levelling compounds or liquid screed can be a costlier investment than the standard mixes but the perfect solution, in the case that your premise is to be transformed into a warehouse or an industrial area which then calls to attain the levelling of the surface for a multitude of safety reasons.
  • Accelerated or Fast Drying Screeds – Generally, a variety of screeds can take weeks or even months to dry completely and to get ready for the application of concluding floor covering. Thus, to tackle the projects with tight deadlines, accelerated screed is an ideal choice. Fast drying screeds can be ready for the final floor finish after just three days.

Liquid Screed in Bristol and Underfloor Heating Solutions

Screed is crucial to strengthen the base of any premises. While this favours the core of any construction, it also provides a precise base for installing an underfloor heating solution.

Liquid Screed BristolAt Liquid Screed Ltd, we pride ourselves on incorporating the latest modern multilayer pipes and control systems that can evenly distribute heat over the entire expanse of the premise it is installed in.

Our installers are CPCS approved in addition to the many years of experience in the underfloor heating niche. We undertake projects right from the very start, adopting the initial design, working to your specifications and working through to an exquisitely levelled floor finish that is guaranteed to last for decades to come.

Before we specify or install an underfloor heating system, it is with imperative understanding that we analyse the type of screed which is best to use in a given situation and identify the different methods of floor construction for your structure during the initial design stage. We consider different thickness requirements linked with specific screed types, and the size of the premises.

The screed must be shielded from the rain, wind and sun as this can have a detrimental effect on the screed flooring. This also contributes towards ensuring a more consistent environment for initial curing. Once the screed has been laid and depending on whether a self levelling or traditional mix is used, it is important that it is left to cure before it can dry completely.

Laying screed must be done at the earliest possible opportunity during the construction process. This is mainly because the curing (providing adequate moisture, temperature, and time to allow the concrete to achieve the desired properties for its intended use) and drying of the screed is crucial to its long-term performance.

Advantages of using Liquid Screed as a Flooring Solution

With a comprehensive range of flooring options to consider, it can be difficult to know which screed is the right solution for your project. Liquid screed has multiple benefits as opposed to other flooring solutions such as the traditional sand and concrete mixture.

Some of the advantages of liquid screed are as follows:

Low flooring weight

The liquid screed is a thinner mixture as opposed to the typical concrete and sand mixture. This means that it can be laid as a thin layer over groundings or UFH (underfloor heating). It reduces the likelihood of a heavy floor causing structural problems. Liquid screed, being thin also supports the working of the underfloor heating system as they are more effective at a lower heat due to a closer proximity to the surface.

Quicker and more efficient application process

Application of liquid screed is up to 10 times faster than the traditional method of applying cement and sand. This reduces both labour time and costs, and therefore at Liquid Screed Bournemouth we ensure that you will be paying less for the labour costs.

The ease of the application process also reduces the likelihood of any errors, and the entire process of the renovation will be quicker and much more efficient for you as our client.

Faster drying time

The thin consistency along with the properties allowing the professionals to lay a thin layer means that liquid screed has a faster drying time compared to other flooring options. It can be walked on just 24 hours after application, reducing the disturbance to other trades in your premises. Liquid Screed Bournemouth can also assist you with forcing the flooring to dry as early as 7 days after its application upon which the final floor finishes can be overlaid.

Liquid screed and underfloor heating
