Are you still considering sand and cement screed for your flooring project? Before you make a mistake in using it, consider liquid screed as a better option.

Liquid screed is formulated to produce a levelled and smooth surface on the interior flooring of a commercial or residential building. The screed is a sublayer applied to the flooring before applying the final floor finishing.

Do you want to know why liquid screed is a better option than sand and cement screed? The following are some of the differences between them:

1) Thinner Layer

Liquid screed provides a thinner layer than sand and cement screed because its aggregates are smaller. This thinner layer is very convenient when installing an underfloor heating system because heat doesn’t take long to travel through the thin layer to the surface. Then you’ll save money on electricity if the system generates heat faster.

2) Covers All Imperfections

Liquid screed flows and fills all the holes, gaps, and other imperfections on the surface. That is how it leaves a smooth, clean appearance on the surface. Unfortunately, the sand and cement screed doesn’t have such an ability to cover all the imperfections like this.

3) Faster to Install

Liquid screed is much easier and faster to install than sand and cement screed. The drying time takes about 48 hours, which is not long at all. Most people walk on their flooring within less than 48 hours after the liquid gets poured.
