Screeding is a technique by which a flat, smooth floor surface is established using a cement mix. Mostly screed is put on top of a concrete sub-floor to cover underfloor heating pipes, to be left as a wearing floor surface or to take on the final floor finish. A properly laid screed can extend the lifespan of the whole floor and establish its durability, finish and quality. Screed is only ever mixed by hand where small areas are involved. For more substantial areas, a decent screed pump must be used to ensure a smooth and even mixture of sand and cement, which is then pumped straight to the desired location.
