Advantages of Liquid Screed
Quick Installation: The process of liquid screed installation is speedy. Due to its nature, it can be done in 1-2 days, making it a quick and easy installation.
Less Labour Cost: Liquid screed is poured from a hose, making the process ten times quicker than the regular laying of traditional screed surface. This means less labour is required, so it cuts the labour cost.
Fast Drying: Stop worrying about the wet floor; liquid screed has the capability of rapid drying. It only takes 24 hours to dry, and then you can walk on it.
Smooth Floor: Liquid screed doesn’t shrink, so you will have a smooth floor without any bumps.
Perfect for Underfloor Heating: It is perfect for an underfloor heating system. Due to its form, it fills all the gaps and spaces to evenly distribute the heat, allowing for better thermal conductivity.
The Installation Process of Liquid Screed
Step 1: Measure the Required Amount of Liquid Screed
Identifying the amount of screed required for the specific area is essential. Our floor screeding contractors never make mistakes in this step and do the survey by themselves.
Step 2: Remove Debris and Lay Insulation
We then remove all the dust and debris from the site where the liquid screed will be set. If an insulation layer has to be added, it is done now.
Step 3: Lay the Watertight Membrane
To make a waterproof membrane, a polyethene sheet is used, and we ensure there is no leakage when the screed is poured; there will be a shallow, watertight pool where the screed will collect.
Step 4: Waterproof Shuttering
Formwork around the obstacles and pipework will be required so water and screed don’t get to these places. Shuttering across doorways or stairs, for instance, must be sealed with expansion foam to make it watertight.
Step 5: Secure Underfloor Heating Pipes
If the underfloor heating system is used, then it needs to be secured; this will not let things float up once the liquid screed is added.
Now if everything is secured and watertight it’s time to pour the screed. However, it’s best to fill the pipes at this stage to prevent them from being squeezed by the screed.
Wait at least 24 hours before walking on it.
