Choosing the right company

Liquid Screed Cardiff

Liquid Screed Cardiff

Poorer quality companies will undoubtedly be estimating mixtures, giving inconsistent and unreliable results when it comes to the lifespan and performance of screed floors. Work that is poorly carried out won’t be worth the materials it’s used since the screed would have cured incorrectly and would have most likely left a poor quality finish too. Poor quality work can also cost the property since it could take thousands to uproot the dried screed in order to repair the shoddy work. Bad quality screed can also cause major structural issues & ramifications so it’s best to rely on a liquid screed provider that knows what they’re doing!

Liquid Screed Cardiff – Underfloor Heating

There are several benefits that liquid screed can bring you that traditional screeds like sand and cement mixtures cannot. Liquid screed is the preferred choice when it comes to installing underfloor heating and there are a few reasons why that is.

Liquid screed has unique characteristics that make it very effective in the transfer of heat. As a material, it’s very effective in its transfer of heat, taking the warmth from heating elements like the ones used in underfloor heating, and spreading that heat evenly across itself. It’s these properties that make it such a great material to use with underfloor heating, making it much more efficient and actually reducing the running costs of underfloor heating.

Liquid screed leaves no voids underneath the flooring when used with underfloor heating since the screed flows freely around the heating pipes. No voids in the screed will mean that there is a better transfer of heat, allowing the heat to diffuse itself evenly across the screed floor.

Even when used without under-floor heating, liquid screed still has great benefits over traditional sand and cement screed. New forms of liquid screed are much more viscous & robust than traditional forms of liquid screed meaning it can be possible to reduce the thickness of liquid screed to much thinner levels when dispensed.

Liquid screed doesn’t have to be used in combination with underfloor heating, as it can be a great material for flooring itself! When it comes to finishing a building, liquid screed is an effective material just about anyway you can use it! With its ability to be dispensed easily and quickly, liquid screed is a material that will save you time and money regardless of the project you’re in. Liquid screed, if pumped correctly can be cured to an amazing finish, leaving no need for further work to polish or finish the surface of the flooring!

Liquid Screed Curing

Liquid screed can also dry in record time, allowing for further and quicker progress to be made in your construction project. Regardless of whether you’re looking for a commercial or domestic scale service, everyone can benefit from a quicker service with less waiting periods. In ideal weather and humidity conditions, forms of liquid screed that we provide can be dry in 24 to 48 hours! Curing will take longer but the screed will be ready for light use in this short period of time! This allows you to progress with other aspects of your building project, increasing productivity and reducing downtime & delay!

Like we’ve stated before, we’ve helped thousands of clients across South Wales with their building projects, from Newport, Swansea, Port Talbot & Cardiff. We’re proud to be a leading provider of liquid screed and other types of concrete and take pride in the service we offer.

What is liquid screed? Is it the same as ready-mix screed?

Liquid screed & ready-mixed concrete are made out of the same fundamental materials, like cement, aggregate & water. The main difference between screed & concrete is the size of the aggregate used & the consistency of the overall mix. There are also different types of cement used but this is only needed for certain uses.

There is a range of commercial & industrial uses for screed, which means that the three listed ingredients can change to better suit a particular use. Liquid screed will tend to use finer concrete & aggregates in order to flow better as well as set better as it’s largely used for flooring.

Liquid Screed – Benefits For Your Construction Project

Screed has not always been as refined & useful as it is now, with failure in screed becoming commonplace on sites that have employed unreliable providers. These novice companies will be using cheaper mixes for their screed, rendering the final product shoddy & cheap. Because of this, contractors and engineers alike have to be careful who they can rely on to provide a quality screed mix, and who they have to avoid. Luckily South Wales Concrete Pumping has a proven track record with thousands of commercial partners in Cardiff, supplying sites with quality liquid screed for whatever purpose they require.

Liquid screed, as the name suggests is screed that is able to be pumped through a concrete pump. Whether it be a huge boom pump for a 40 story skyscraper or a trailer-mounted pump for a smaller job, liquid screed makes easy work of any task you throw at it. We have specialist mixes that are suitable for all uses, with floor screeding being a huge one. We’ve helped many construction sites with their flooring, providing quality liquid screed that they can rely on. We also have a range of special access vehicles that enable us to access any construction site where there may be restricted access, as we’ve found that no one construction site is the same. We’re ready for all eventualities,

Ready Mix Concrete Swansea

Ready Mix Concrete Swansea

Needing a reliable, ready-mix concrete supplier is an odd requirement but something a lot of us find ourselves needing. Whether your needs are as small as a shed base in your home or driveway to the construction of a multi-storey building, the most crucial step is to know understand your needs and to inquire with a reliable concrete supplier like South Wales Concrete Pumping. Visit our site on Ready Mix Concrete Swansea for more information about our ready-mix services!

Concrete is an important material used in everyday work sites, from your residential projects to commercial buildings, concrete is used everywhere you see! Trying to find a reliable provider for ready mix concrete can be difficult when you’re met with a lot of providers claiming they’re efficient and dependable. It’s difficult to find a provider that truly delivers a second to none service. SW Concrete Pumping is a leading provider of ready-mix concrete Swansea to all trade and domestic customers! If you are interested in finding out more about ready mix concrete and the benefits, please visit our website on Ready Mix Concrete Swansea or call us on 01633 860645

Once you can quantify your concrete needs in volume, your next consideration should be on how you are going to get the concrete delivered to the worksite. Ready-mix concrete is something you should consider since it combines the delivery & mixing process so that you can use the concrete straight away.

Ready-mix concrete is a considerable time and resource saver since it’s incredibly convenient by combining two processes at once. Rather than storing raw materials at your work site and then having to mix it at will, ready-mix offers concrete whenever you need it; pre-mixed ready for application. No labour has to be used to combine the materials as it’s already mixed! We have a few excellent points below that give you a few reasons on why ready mix should be your choice in concrete!

Reasons why you should consider ready-mix! – Ready Mix Concrete Swansea

Reduced Work: Using ready-mix concrete minimises both builders & labourers work since it takes less time to prepare raw materials as it’s already mixed. All workers on site can now focus their attention on applying the material which helps save time and also cost on overall labour which can help save you money. Having concrete readily available rather than having to mix it every time you need it is a considerable efficiency shortcut, and it’ll keep labourer frustrations to a minimum.

Savings: Using ready-mix concrete doesn’t require labour much labour at the work site, removing the need to allocate workers to mix concrete. You can also save on resources, not only concerning general cost since builders can save time which otherwise might be used up in finding and hiring labourers for your worksite.

On a domestic level, you can also help save your own time and money by using ready-mix concrete since mixing concrete DIY can be incredibly tedious & complicated. Smaller tasks like filling cracks could be carried out on a DIY basis, but a new driveway has to be done on a slightly larger scale. From shed bases to new patios, ready-mix concrete is a real time and money saver when it comes to how much time you’re going to be saving.

Quality Control: Since ready-mix is mechanically mixed, consistency and quality are assured as everything is quantified to the gram. Ready-mix concrete will always be more consistent than hand mixing. If you need durable concrete for a weight-bearing application, you should always use mechanically processed concrete so that you can rely on the consistency of your construction project.

The better the concrete is mixed, the better the material will cure. Curing allows the concrete to achieve its full strength which is essential for weight bearing applications. Curing is the process by which the concrete hardens. Many people think it’s better for concrete to dry while it’s curing but having the correct humidity is vital for the full curing process to occur. Concrete is usually fully cured after 3 to 4 weeks. After this duration of time, the concrete is at around 90% of its full strength capacity making it serviceable to work with. This is ideal for floor screeds etc. that may require tiling, carpet or floorboards above the screed.

Using Ready-Mix Concrete Swansea is far better than mixing materials onsite. Even if you’re paying slightly more for ready mix, the time and labour savings you’ll make from using pre-mixed materials makes it a worthy venture for your domestic or commercial scale worksite. If you are thinking about ready-mix concrete, then South Wales Concrete Pumping can help you. Their advisors can help inform you about the services you may need to fulfil your requirements.

Gyvlon floor screed provides your residential or commercial property with added insulation so you are not losing any heat through your floor screed. It also reduces the amount of noise escaping from your floor to beneath floors, which is useful in an industrial building where loud equipment is used.

Floor screed is laid at a thickness ranging from 25mm for bonded screed up to 65mm for floating screed which sits over underfloor heating. However, the thickness can also depend on the amount of usage and pressure the floor screed will have, for example, industrial and heavy traffic areas will require thicker screed to provide extra protection to the concrete or under floor heating beneath. Our team in South Wales can advise you on the best thickness for your floor screed.

Why Do I Need Screed?

Floor screed can be applied to an existing floor to upgrade its appearance and give it a professional finish, or can be used to level off an existing floor. When dry, screed is extremely durable and can provide protection to your underfloor heating. It is also suitable for wet environments to protect your property from the risk of flooding and damp.

Floor Screed South WalesIf your property in South Wales or the surrounding areas is a commercial building such as a factory or a shop, floor screed can add to your customer experience and ensure that your floor is protected and durable for many years to come. Floor screed with underfloor heating in your home can make it more comfortable and lower heating bills as heat cannot escape through the poorly insulated flooring. Floor screed also reduces your properties risk of water leaks damaging the structure and causing major problems.

What are the Types of Screed?

There are 3 main types of screed which vary depending on the surface that you are applying your screed on to:

  • Bonded – This means the screed is directly put onto the base of your commercial or residential property. The existing concrete is covered with a bonding agent and then topped with your floor screed, which can then be finished with a flooring.
  • Unbonded – This means the screed is laid on top of a damp proof membrane which covers the existing concrete. The floor screed can then be covered with a floor finish for your room.
  • Floating – This means the screed is applied over a layer of insulation, such as underfloor heating and a damp proof membrane before the screen can be then finished with a flooring such as a carpet or wood.

You can guarantee your floor screed and concrete pumping work will be completed to a high quality by our skilled and qualified team.

Liquid Screed Swansea

Liquid Screed Swansea – South Wales Concrete Pumping

When it comes to finishing a building, flooring is most often forgotten about until the very last stages of the build since it’s usually one of the last things to happen.

Our operators can pump liquid screed through our pumps to get flooring finished on any floor of your site. For more information about Liquid Screed Swansea please visit our site today!

Screed Used For Flooring:

Liquid Screed Swansea

Liquid Screed Swansea

Liquid screed flooring is an important part of any home. Used for the base of most floors, there is a variety of different materials that are used for flooring. From vinyl, wood to carpet, screed acts as the base for all of these floors. Liquid screed is also very important for those that live in colder areas since screed assists the thermal properties of the home. Recent developments in screed mean that homes that use screed are better insulated than those without.

Liquid screed is one of the most common materials used when it comes to the flooring of a building. Liquid screed easy to manage & makes for a smooth, well-insulated floor that cures quickly. Screed is also flexible in the sense of its use since there’s a lot of different things you’re able to do with screed.

Underfloor Heating:

Screed flooring is a common choice for those who are looking to use underfloor heating since screed can cover underfloor heating very well. Different flooring materials like vinyl and wood are much less effective in creating a solid base for the heat to transfer, essentially losing heat as your floor heating is working.

It’s important to ensure that heat is passed through screed in the most efficient way possible. The liquid forms of screed are much more efficient as they help in forming an air pocket that helps in performing like an insulator between the pipe and the underfloor heating screed. The liquid ones are much better regarding heat conductivity if compared to the traditional ones. It has been observed that the while installing them beneath the floor, much more heat transmission takes place in the areas where the presence of cable is found. It is also important to ensure the fact that you are using the appropriate service provider while using the screed. Proper preparation beg\forehand is required to get done. Otherwise, the occurrence of errors during the installation and functioning procedure may take place. Hiring professional providers is recommended as pumping liquid screed isn’t something you can do easily by yourself.

Liquid Screed for Underfloor Heating:

Liquid screed is honestly the best choice for your flooring if you are thinking about underfloor heating. If you can use it, then we would highly recommend it’s used in your home. It increases the thermal qualities of your home giving you the ability on saving on your energy bills.

A reliable screed service is essential for those who want to have screed pumped in their new home. You may be building a new home, or you could be renovating your existing property, regardless of both types of use require a professional service. Choose the most reliable provider in your area that has lots of experience so that you’re not wasting your money with below board services.

What are the benefits of liquid screed?

There are two types of screed that are used in modern construction, traditional screed & liquid. There are benefits of both kinds however we find liquid screed is suited for a lot of applications. We go through a few of the benefits to outline some advantages of liquid screed.

Quicker Laying: Pouring liquid screed is a lot less difficult than it is to lay concrete screed. Since you’re able to pour & pump liquid screed, it takes less time to pour the same amount of screed as you would with conventional screed. When a building calls for a floating floor, liquid screed is the usual go-to material.

Better Thermal Properties: Liquid screed is much denser than conventional concrete screeds. The liquid suspends a lot more solid particles, meaning there’s less air between the concrete. This makes for a much more thermally effective material which is why it’s almost exclusively used with underfloor heating. You’re also able to reduce the overall depth of the screed if your home favours conventional floor insulation.

Less Shrinking: Unlike traditional screed which is notorious for shrinking, curling & cracking, liquid screed is a lot less sensitive. Liquid screed doesn’t dry or cure like concrete screed does, so it lessens the risk of cracks in the final finish. Curing liquid screed is much easier than letting concrete screed dry out.

Cures & Dries Much Faster: One of the main features that people use liquid screed for is that it dries extremely fast. You’re able to walk on & work on a liquid screed floor in less than 48 hours of pouring. This compared to concrete screed makes a huge difference. This is why a lot of construction workers are opting for liquid screed as it suits tight schedules much better.

Different Types of Liquid Screed:

Best Liquid Screed Swansea

Liquid Screed Swansea

The most popular kinds of screed that are available are sand cement screed and liquid screed. Screed is available in different varieties, some of which are mentioned below. Check them out:

• Sand Cement Flooring Solution

Sand cement flooring solution is considered to be the traditional way of preparing the floor before applying the final touches. In the traditional screed, sand and cement are mixed at a ratio of 3:5. This type has been used since ages for flooring because they are suitable for receiving any floor covering. In fact, fibres can be added in proper ratio into the mixture to eliminate the microcracks and scratches from the surface.

• Sand and Cement along with chemicals

Chemicals can be added to the cement and sand screed to improve the screed property. Additives are often mixed with screed to bring extra strength in the application, and these help the liquid dry faster.

• Liquid Screed

Nowadays, everyone wants their house to look attractive with colourful or functional floors. This is where the importance of a screed comes into the picture. Screed that’s laid properly helps in extending the life of the floor & increases its quality. A bad screed can affect the quality of the floor and re-conditioning the floor can drain your pocket. Utmost care should be taken when choosing the perfect screed company. For a reliable provider of Liquid Screed Swansea give our team a call on 01495 756238
