Two of the most popular types of screed are traditional concrete and liquid. Both offer the chance for all round, high quality flooring but have very different properties. Fortunately, we stock a huge range of both screed products from the world’s leading suppliers who only allow trusted installers (like us!) to use their products. We take great pride in the standard of our work and have worked with clients in both the industrial and domestic sector. Here, we take a look at the main differences between concrete and liquid screed flooring.
Screed Flooring Comparison
Concrete screed is the most traditional choice and still one of the most widely used in the UK. It’s a cost effective screeding solution that once laid, should ensure your floor surface stands up to even the heaviest levels of foot traffic and it takes around a week for concrete screed to fully dry out. However, the biggest advantage with liquid screed is that it dries far quicker than its traditional counterpart. Certain liquid screeds can be ready for use after an incredible 24 hours! And, they tend to work better with underfloor heating systems as the screed flows round and dries around the pipes and fittings. It’s also thinner than concrete screed which allows the heat to rise through easier.
