What is Screed?
Traditional screed comprised of sand and cement is mixed at a ratio of 3 to 5 parts sand and 1 part cement. Previously, a hex wire or chicken wire mesh was used to reinforce the floor screed and ensure that it set correctly with no sections with less screed. Depending on the weather, a normal screed can take 24 – 48 hours to set and be safe to walk on and put your finish on to cement.

Screed can be used in a variety of ways. One usage is to level out floors in both commercial and residential building so that they are safe to work or live on. Another usage is to protect you existing concrete flooring. Floor screed is extremely durable and can be used in wet environments to stop any leaks or damp affecting your building, such as bathrooms or kitchens.
Some versions of screed, such as our Gyvlon Flowing Screed, provides noise insulation to stop any noise pollution from spreading to your neighbours beneath your building. This is especially vital if your commercial building uses loud equipment at early and late hours. The heat installation property too will lower your bills due to heat not being able to escape through the floor and insulate your rooms so the heat stays in.
At South Wales Concrete Pumping, we also supply the fast drying Topflow Screed C Benitez. Not only does it dry quickly (120cm squared in 45 minutes, as opposed to 24 hours), it pours easily and fills all gaps that may have appeared. It does not shrink either so we can guarantee that your entire area has been covered by the screed with no gaps or cracks for your finish to be ruined. The easy, free-flowing floor screed product is easy to install too with a professional finish being visible once it has dried.

In the last decade or so, liquid floor screed has been an increasingly popular option that has replaced traditional forms of screed. Floor Screed needs to be pumped and laid by professionals who know what they are doing. Even though floor screed seems like an easy material to work with, it’s incredibly difficult to utilise it’s useful properties if you don’t know what you are doing. Floor screed needs to be pumped and laid with care since the final finish all depends on the preparation and pumping process. Proper preparation will ensure the screeds longevity and durability, whereas any ill-equipped providers that don’t know what they are doing may ruin the structural integrity of the screed, wasting materials, time and money.
