The company supplies liquid screeds to both new builds and to restoration projects and claims that there are very many advantages over the traditional sand and cement screed that has been used until recently. In fact, sand and cement is still used very widely, as the building trade can be somewhat slow to adopt new ideas when the old way has been safe and sure for many years.
However, laying sand and cement screed is a laborious process as, even if it is delivered ready mixed, it has to be laid by hand, which involves a labourer getting down on hands and knees. This can result in different finishes, because different tradesmen will have varying levels of skill.
Liquid screeds, however, are delivered to the site ready to pour and are installed using a screed pump. Because it is laid in a liquid form it will fill every gap and void and is also self-levelling. If you think about it, if you poured water over a substrate that was uneven, the surface of the water when it has settled will be level, no matter how many dips and bumps there may be in the material over which it was poured. Liquid screed is the same. In fact, just to make extra certain, the liquid screed is levelled using a laser. This means that it is level to what is known as Surface Regularity 2, or SR2, as a minimum, and will usually achieve SR1 which is the highest level possible.
What this means for the main contractor is that the screed will be as level as it possibly can be for the installation of the final floor. This is particularly important if the floor is of tile or some other material that is glued to the screed. Liquid screed is highly resistant to curling or shrinkage, so it stays flat and level. With other screeds that may not be the case and it could lead to tiles cracking as the screed shrinks underneath it.
Not only are liquid screeds very fast to lay, but they are also quick to dry, being ready for walking on in 48 hours or less. This means that there is little to no disturbance to other contractors working on site.
