Installing a cement-based or polyurethane resin screed is a simple way of covering an existing floor substrate to provide a sound sub-floor for subsequent floor finishes such as carpets, vinyl flooring, laminate or hardwood flooring. It may also be required as a final wearing finish in industrial premises which have a variety of traffic levels.
The screed can be used to improve uneven concrete surfaces to meet design tolerances for the installation of coverings or for instance, to level traffic aisles to allow safe and smooth operation of high reach forklift trucks. Repairs to concrete floors prior to the installation of new polyurethane screeds can be made in several ways. Depending on the situation fast drying cement, epoxy or polyurethane kits can be used to effect quick localised repairs.
Screeds can be laid as:
Un-bonded onto a suitable damp proof membrane
Bonded direct to the substrate via a suitable bonding agent
Floated onto a layer of rigid insulation
Proprietary cement-based bagged screeds are available in many types such as:
Self-levelling or smoothing screeds laid from 2mm to 20mm. These are generally used as underlayment for further finishes and under floor heating
Self-levelling and pump-able industrial traffic grade screeds for both internal and external use, laid at 5mm and above
Fast setting and rapid hardening traffic grade screeds which allow use quickly
The general thickness of application is greater than 10mm.
