What is screed flooring?
Floor screed consists of a thin layer of cementitious material applied to a solid concrete subfloor, frequently over underfloor heating. The screed flooring mixture traditionally consists of sharp sand and cement, similar to regular concrete, however, its consistency is less course and more liquid in nature to ensure a smooth surface finish and better thermal benefits.
What are the benefits of screed flooring?
There are many benefits to choosing screed flooring, one of which is its smooth, level surface finish. A screed floor provides a suitable flat surface for laying tiles, carpets or floorboards should you choose to, eliminating any unevenness and improving health and safety by reducing potential trip hazards.
The second excellent benefit of screed flooring is its increased thermal conductivity when paired with underfloor heating. The initial fluidity of liquid screed when it's poured means that it wraps around your underfloor heating pipes entirely, making it more efficient at transferring heat throughout your floor compared with regular concrete mixes.
What type of screed flooring do I need?
There are three main types of screed flooring - unbonded, bonded and floating:
Unbonded screed flooring – is applied on top of a damp proof membrane which is laid on the concrete subfloor.
Bonded screed flooring – is applied directly to the concrete subfloor.
Floating screed flooring – is applied over a layer of insulation or an underfloor heating system.
