Screeding is generally put on top of a concrete sub-floor to receive a floor finish (such as carpet, vinyl, tiles or floor boards), to cover underfloor heating pipes or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. An effectively laid screed can help to lengthen the life of a floor and positively affect its quality, durability and finish. Hand mixing screed should only be used for smaller areas, in all other cases a screed pump should be used to swiftly guarantee a smooth, even mixture of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this fine mix straight to its required location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like.

Plasterboarding Maldon (Dry Lining): Some plasterers in Maldon also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which are required in a lot of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is affixed to a timber studding or joist, a brickwork surface or a metal frame to form a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst you could decorate the plasterboard surface as it is, normally most people choose to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to timber studding or joists, drywall screws or nails are used, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used.
