What is Sand and Cement Floor Screed?

Sand and Cement Floor Screed Considerations

While sand and cement floor screed offers a wealth of benefits, it's important to consider a few key factors:

  • Drying Time: Sand and cement screed typically requires a longer drying time compared to some faster-drying alternatives. However, at GM Floor Screeds, we understand the importance of project timelines. We'll discuss drying time expectations upfront and can offer guidance on optimising drying conditions to expedite the process whenever possible.
  • Subfloor Suitability: Sand and cement floor screed is generally not suitable for all subfloor types. Our expert team will conduct a thorough subfloor assessment to ensure compatibility before installation begins.
  • Skilful Installation: A smooth sand and cement floor screed relies on proper mixing ratios, application techniques, and drying procedures. Our highly trained installers possess the knowledge and experience to deliver a high-quality, long-lasting screed for your project.
