Why liquid screed trumps dry screed indoors
At Wright Minimix, our concreting experts maintain that liquid screed is far better than traditional dry screeds when it comes to indoor applications. Read on to find out why.
Speed of installation
Liquid screed will always be faster to install than dry screed. This is because it requires zero spreading or levelling. All you need is a concrete pump and a very limited number of tools to carry out installation. The larger the area you need to cover, the more time (and therefore cost) savings you will make by using liquid screed over a traditional dry screed.
Our Wrightflow liquid screed has been specially designed to be quick drying whilst maintaining minimal chance of cracking. This means that your floor could be walked on within 24 hours and is usually capable of full weight bearing within 7 days. This is more rapid than the majority of traditional screeds.
Efficiency with underfloor heating
One of the most compelling reasons to choose liquid screed over a traditional dry screed is its improved thermal efficiency when combined with underfloor heating. This is because liquid screed wraps around the underfloor heating pipes completely and has minimal air pockets that prevents heat distribution throughout the floor. Better thermal efficiency means that you will have to spend less overall on other heating costs to compensate, like turning on radiators.
