Liquid Screed Installers
Strong, fast drying & thermally efficient screed
Liquid screeds have come a long way in the last couple of years. The benefits to liquid screed has been proven time and time again to save time, money and improve the heating output from underfloor heating systems.
Early liquid screeds where manufactured from Gypsum which is a soft sulfate mineral composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate also known as “Anhydrite” or the tradename “Gyvlon”
Since the introduction of Gypsum based screeds we now have Cement based liquid screeds also known as Cemfloor or Longfloor. Cement liquid screeds offer the advantage of rapid curing, easy tiling and less preparation work for the final floor covering.
Typical liquid screeds are supplied from the concrete plant in large mixer wagons, then poured into our pump and pumped into your home or building with high levels of efficiency meaning we keep to our schedule and don’t hold up your plans either.
Benefits of a liquid screed floor
WarmFloors Liquid Screed is designed to provide a smooth, level surface prior to the application of the final floor finishes. It can be used bonded, unbonded or floated and with or without underfloor heating.
Liquid floor screeds have many advantages over the traditional sand cement floor screeds:
- Installation of liquid floor screed is less labour intensive and over 10 times faster than sand cement screed.
- Screed depth can be reduced significantly, meaning you can increase the thermal efficiency of your property by installing thicker floor insulation.
- A reduced depth of floor screed means reduced weight and drying times.
- WarmFloors Liquid Screed can be walked on 24 hours after application, meaning minimal disturbance to other trades on site.
- Liquid Screed can be force dried – as early as 7 days after application.
Warmfloors are liquid screed experts
At WarmFloors we supply all types of liquid screed for the bulk of the UK, delivery to site does depend on your location and it's best to ask if you live in a remote area.
We can pump approx. 100m from the roadside to the property which is a real advantage for hard to reach areas.
Liquid screeds can be commissioned as early as 7 days after placement, and we strongly recommend you to get the underfloor heating connected and commissioned as soon as possible, this will force dry the screed and remove any excess moisture in the floor prior to bonding your new floor covering.
Common liquid screed questions
Customers often ask should we plaster the walls before screeding?
We feel the sooner the slab is installed the sooner it can be drying, so as soon as the property is weather tight we would recommend installing underfloor heating and screed. Once the slab is installed then the staircase can be measured and gives the trades a decent working surface until completion.
“What about laitance?” “My mate says the screed needs sanding”
This is true – Laitance is a thin-film that forms like a skin on the surface of the screed, WarmFloors will always where possible install low laitance screed (skin free) If your bonding floor coverings to the surface then we would recommend the screed to be sanded, but this should be taken on a case by case job and the floor fitter will be able to advise.
