How We Install Liquid Floor Screed?

Our company uses the most advanced tools and equipment to install floor screeding in Hounslow. This is how we proceed:

  • The first step is to measure the amount of screed required, which our experienced contractors do by visiting the site.
  • We remove all the dust and fragments from the area and make it waterproof. If insulation needs to be added, it is done before applying water-resistant material.
  • We set up the formwork around places that need to be protected from water and screed, such as doorways or steps.
  • Later, we anchor the pipes if you are using underfloor heating, as nothing should be floating above the liquid after pouring.
  • Now that the ground is ready, it’s time to bring our advanced equipment to pour the liquid screed. It is poured using a pump or mixer and spread using a screeding bar or levelling tool.
  • The screed is left now for drying, which usually takes 24-48 hours, depending on the thickness of the screed and environmental conditions.

Why Do You Need a Liquid Floor Screed?

The traditional methods of screeding, which are mostly semi-dry, are getting outdated due to the fast-paced adoption of liquid floor screed in Hounslow and surrounding areas. It can be applied much faster, 500-1000 metre square per day, compared to traditional methods. Some other reasons to use liquid floor screeding in your construction include:

  • It is a better choice to use with underfloor heating, as it can cover all the air gaps, giving an efficient performance to underfloor heating.
  • It can dry quickly, as it is a thinner liquid. The average time it takes to become solid is between 24-48 hours.
  • It comes in ready-mixed form, just as we provide here at K M Flow Screed, which eliminates the concern of wastage.
  • It is easy to install and has a self-levelling feature, providing a smoother surface in a day.


What are the types of screed?

There are three different types of screed

  • The bonded screed is directly applied to the surface (concrete subfloor) using adhesives.
  • Unbonded screed utilises PVC film to be used between the surface and screed.
  • A floating screed is unbonded screed used to reinforce the thermal or acoustic layer.

How thin the liquid screed can be?

Various types of screed are used in the market, but some variants can be installed as thin as 12mm. If you use underfloor heating, the recommended average depth should be 50mm.

What are the different types of liquid screed?

A range of options are available in the market, but there are two main categories of floor screed. These categories have a variety of options to utilise.

  • Traditional screed uses cement, sharp sand and a small amount of water.
  • Liquid screed uses calcium sulphate instead of cement.

How can I determine the thickness of the screed?

Ans: It is mainly determined by using a laser level to calculate the depth accurately. At K M Flow Screed, we calculate the average depth required and place the levels before pouring the screed, so you only have to pay for what you require.
