Screeding Walkden: Many plasterers in Walkden also offer a floor screeding service, whereby a new level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is usually put on top of a concrete sub-floor to encase underfloor heating pipes, to be left as a wearing floor surface or to take on the final floor finish. A properly laid screed can considerably extend the life of the whole floor and assure its finish, quality and durability. The mixing of screed by hand is only appropriate for smaller areas, and preferably a screed pump should be used to rapidly produce a smooth, even blend of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this fine mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the use of wheelbarrows and similar paraphernalia. There are a number of different types of floor screed available in Walkden, therefore you should ask to find which is appropriate for your screeding project, you will be choosing from free-flowing screed, unbonded screed, structural screed, traditional screed, fast drying screed, bonded screed and floor levelling compound.
