The Benefits For Traditional Floor Screeding
At Screedafloor we take pride in only sourcing all of our sand and cement screed from expert national screed suppliers. We use big names such as Cemex and Tarmac. This helps us to ensure that we can meet the required British Standards and ensure we can uphold our 10-year guarantee.
The factory mixed sand and cement levelling screed is suitable for both flooring applications and provides superb cement dispersion. This, in turn, provides a more uniform comprehensive strength throughout.
Traditional Screed can be used on suspended or in-situ concrete floors, as a topping to light aggregate screeds or utilised in a floating construction over insulation to give acoustic or thermal properties.
Using readily mixed screeds prevents any issues which could arise when using Screed mixed on site. These problems can sometimes damage the integrity of the installation and its suitability for purpose or longevity.

Traditional Screed Specifications
Traditional floor screed is also known as sand and cement screed or dry floor screed because of its low water content. We offer traditional screeds which are laid from 65mm+ thickness on a floating floor and are laid 50mm+ to a bonded floor. It is possible for your screeds to be laid thinner but to achieve this you would require additives to be included in the mix which we can supply.
