Screed Flooring Applications
Liquid Flow Screed Advantages
Liquid flow screed can be used to create a smooth and level surface on which to lay floorings such as tiles, vinyl, or carpet. It is suitable for both new build and refurbishment projects, including underfloor heating installations. The fluid mortar mix is poured onto the existing subfloor before being levelled with a specialist blade. Once it has set, the surface is ready to receive a finishing layer of your desired floor covering. Liquid flow screed provides an even and durable finish that will last for many years. It also offers excellent thermal qualities, helping to keep rooms warm in colder months and cool during summer. Furthermore, it can be used on a wide range of surfaces including concrete, plywood, and asphalt. With its high-performance properties, liquid flow screed is an excellent choice for any renovation project!
Liquid flow screed offers a number of advantages over traditional sand and cement screeds. It can be applied much more quickly than the traditional mixes used in floor construction. This not only saves time on the day of installation but can significantly reduce the project timeline in its entirety.
Time Efficient Installations
Liquid screed is quick and easy to install due to its liquid form, meaning that even large areas can be covered quickly. This makes it a cost-effective choice for large commercial flooring projects. The material is also incredibly durable, so it can last for many years. It is also waterproof and resistant to staining, making it ideal for areas that are often exposed to moisture or dirt.
As well as being used in renovations, liquid flow screed can also be an ideal choice for new construction projects. By offering a quicker installation time and requiring fewer personnel during application, it can reduce construction costs significantly and help speed up the process.
It is also suitable for underfloor heating systems due to its efficient thermal conductivity and low thermal mass, making it an ideal choice for modern homes and businesses that want to make their spaces more energy-efficient. Liquid flow screed can also be used in commercial buildings such as offices, hotels, and restaurants where a smooth and level floor covering is required. Due to its flexibility, it can be laid over most surfaces including concrete and wooden floors, making it an ideal solution for refurbishments.
Another benefit of liquid screed is its low permeability, which can help reduce dampness and mould in a building. As well as this, liquid screed has excellent acoustic properties that can help reduce noise transfer from one room to another. It also boasts good fire resistance and is non-toxic, making it both safe and hygienic for use in any environment.
Finally, the liquid flow screed is easy to maintain and repair if needed. It is resistant to stains and most chemical spills, so it will stay looking fresh with minimal effort. It also has a long lifespan and is easy to clean, making it an economical choice for any property. All in all, liquid flow screed provides many benefits and is a great choice for anyone looking to create a comfortable, energy-efficient environment.
With so many advantages, it’s no wonder liquid flow screed is becoming increasingly popular. Whether you need to insulate a home, reduce noise levels, or just want a beautiful flooring solution, this versatile material can help you achieve your goals.

This also means that it is easier to customise the design of the screed, creating different patterns and textures for a unique finish.
Overall, liquid screed has a lot of advantages over traditional concrete screed when it comes to installation speed and ease, strength, thermal properties, flexibility, and design potential. If you're looking for a durable and reliable flooring material that is easy to install, liquid screed could be the perfect option for you. With so many advantages over concrete screed, it's no wonder that liquid screed is becoming increasingly popular for commercial and residential projects.
Not sure about the exact material I need for the job?
Please contact us for first-class friendly advice and we will talk you through exactly the product that you need and can supply you with a detailed survey and quotation.
The job is time-sensitive, how can I get around these time constraints as we only have a specific window of week/days?
Some of the fast-drying cement-based products that we offer can hold foot traffic after 24-48 hours after they have been pumped and levelled. Also, we have products that can be forced to dry quite safely with minimal drying shrinkage (0.05%)
The flooring has not got much depth to get over, how can we get around this problem, what type of screed?
We can supply and lay ultra-thin and eco-friendly screed products all offer an exceptional thermal conductivity quality, which is a perfect balance for your underfloor heating installations. A pure winner indeed that will assure you even further with low-cost effective energy bills in the future.
We are looking for the best quality screed material to cover our recent underfloor heat installation. What do you suggest?
Our liquid/flow screeds are more conductive, simply means the heat from the underfloor pipes gets through easier and is more evenly spread. We have screeds that can be laid ultra-thin, specially designed for the modern underfloor heating systems.. Please contact us to arrange a survey and quotation so we can tailor a solution exactly to your specific requirements.
Bonded Liquid Flow Screed
This type of floor screed is bonded onto the substrate or sub-floor, usually using an adhesive or bonding agent, to make sure that the bond between the screed and the substrate material is very strong.
Ideal for large machinery, car parks, driveways and heavy footfall.
Bonded liquid flow screeds can offer a customer the best option if they require a thin layer of screed for any reason because it has quick drying properties, good option if a project has time issues.
Bonded screed is a mix that is poured directly onto the base, substrate, or structure that it will be laid upon.
Typical substrates are;

Unbonded Liquid Flow Screed
When a screed is labelled “un-bonded” it means that when the screed is installed, it is poured and levelled over a polyurethane membrane. This barrier stops the subsurface substrate below coming into contact with our chosen material. This will protect your screed as it will form a damp proof layer.
Floating Liquid and Flow Screeds
Floating screeds are unbonded screeds that usually lay on top of underfloor heating solutions, with insulation layers and sometimes acoustic properties underneath the heated pipes. So, therefore, the screed is not in contact with the raw substrate or underfloor sub-base, theoretically speaking the screed is in a floating state, sitting on top of these extra fitted membranes
Anhydrite Flow Screeds
Anhydrite screeds are more common these days as the benefits over sand and cement screeds seem to place them in favour with builders, contractors and D.I.Y enthusiasts. The qualities they offer are lower cost, easier to lay, fast-drying, with minimum shrinkage abilities. They can be pumped to your chosen area as they come in liquid form and when laid become self levelling. What more could you ask!. No wonder they are a very popular choice. If used for underfloor heating installations, an allowance of 25mm to cover the pipes is a good practice.
Although these anhydrite screeds offer many benefits, there are a couple of pointers to be aware of which could cause potential problems if not addressed correctly.
Substrates and Sub-Base Preparation.
Most modern liquid screeds are being laid this way and their popularity has gained traction over recent years.
The proper preparation of these sub-bases is critical to the success of the whole project. The whole intended floor needs to be sealed and tanked with no breaks, holes or gaps for the liquid screed to escape. The proposed area should be 100% watertight ready for the application of our chosen screed product. The great advantage of liquid flow screeds is because they are in liquid form they infiltrate every possible crevice and voids, bonding all the elements together, which will give your underfloor heating superior thermal qualities and better overall control.
Just ring through with your measurements and we will work out an approximate price. It does not matter if you make a mistake with the measurement, as we mix everything on site. It may go slightly over or under your initial calculations, but you will only pay for the product you use, this will save you money and gives you peace of mind.
Our company has a vast experience with concrete and screed products in the Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, and Leicestershire areas, with many years in the industry. So you can rest assured that you will be taken care of from start to finish. We would like you to recommend us to friends and family, most of our work is through referrals of customers that have used our Concrete and screed services before.
Screeds are mainly used internally for flooring, sometimes to cover underfloor heating systems or to supply a thermal or an acoustic effect.
Some Screeds that are required externally will have polymers added to give a stronger and more hard wearing surface, as well as a quicker drying area if needed.
