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.
