Supreme Liquid Screed Contractors in Reading
FULLY TRAINED STAFF
Liquid screed is a cement-like material, often calcium sulphate, which is used to make a levelled and uniform layer over concrete flooring. The application of liquid screed has several benefits, including better insulation, noise reduction, improving the floor’s conductivity, and improved aesthetics. Liquid screed is pumped to fill in the voids beneath your floor, which otherwise will make your underfloor heating less effective. It is applied using a pump and transported in a truck mixer. If you are not getting the desired results from your underfloor heating system and you also want to benefit from the other remarkable properties of liquid screed, get in touch with us today for your liquid screed reading.

Its hardwearing properties enable it to withstand high traffic and heavy weights. Liquid screed does not shrink, and therefore, the risk of developing cracks is very low. Our technicians use the top-quality liquid screed, which is long-lasting and reliable.

Increased Thermal Efficiency of Your Underfloor Heating System
Electric and hydronic underfloor heating systems employ a network of cables or pipes to distribute heat evenly throughout your floor. However, there are voids between the pipes and the floor, which reduce thermal efficiency as some of the heat is lost in these voids. Pumping liquid screed into these voids and filling them up reduces heat loss considerably, allowing your underfloor heating to be more efficient. The effectiveness of underfloor heating also depends on the type and size of insulation installed. Only a thin layer of screed is enough to fill up the voids. This gives you the option to install much thicker insulation, further enhancing the thermal efficiency of your system.

Which Type of Liquid Screed is Suitable for You?
Liquid screeds can be bonded, unbonded, and floating. The bonded application involves the use of adhesives with the liquid screed. Unbonded involves the installation of a waterproofing membrane such as PVC between the floor and the screed. This is usually carried out in buildings where there is dampness or where there is relatively higher moisture in the environment. A floating screed is typically used for strengthening a thermal/acoustic layer. You do not have to worry about any of these, as this would be the job of our technicians to identify which liquid screed is best for your environment and your home.
