A floor screed is a layer of material which is laid directly onto the base floor to carry the final flooring. The application of the floor screed is vital to the final product, adding to the overall finish and durability of the floor.
Many clients require our experienced floor layers to use underlay screeds to either build up levels or create falls, often for drainage. To guarantee the longevity of the flooring, the underlay screed must be compatible with the resin flooring system – our teams will assist with the correct specification.
At a minimum, the subfloor must have the required compressive strength and moisture content as per the resin suppliers’ recommendation. We would always recommend testing the floor screed for compatibility with the resin flooring system.
With floor screed, it is vital to always follow the suppliers’ application methods, any variations may cause problems with the bond to the resin flooring system. To eliminate this risk, we would advise the floor screed is installed as part of our flooring package.
The National Flooring Company offer a range of cementitious floor screeds and resin floor screeds and concrete repair products depending on the requirements of the project.
