As More Benefits Become Known, Flow Screeding Continues to Rise in Popularity
How familiar are you with flow screeding? Also known as liquid screed, this material continues to grow in popularity within the construction industry. Put simply, this is due to the many clear benefits it has over traditional sand and cement screeds. While these advantages cover a range of performance-related aspects, they are especially applicable if you plan to install underfloor heating at your Haywards Heath property. As a screeding company providing services as underfloor heating installers, SSR Flow Screed covers all your needs.
From the initial flow screed preparation, we work with a meticulous attention to detail. With our expertise, you receive a flawless, even finish with unmatched strength and durability.
Flow Screeding | The Go-To Choice
From small domestic jobs to large-scale commercial projects, time is money for all forms of building work. Time-efficiency, aided by rapid turnarounds, is one of the key benefits that draws property owners and developers to liquid screeds. Our screeding company installs these surfaces up to 20 times faster than the traditional, hand-applied sand and cement alternative.
This is primarily because our screeds arrive at your Haywards Heath site ready-mixed. Of course, this makes flow screed preparation a far simpler process. In short, our team simply connects a hose and pumps the flow screeding into the required space.
As a result, it can take as little as 45 minutes to cover 100 square metres. By extension, we can easily screed as much as 2,000 square metres in one day. When the liquid has settled, our team runs over the surface in two directions with a dappling bar to remove any air bubbles.
Whether you’re using us as your underfloor heating installers or not, that’s all the screeding process involves
However, if we are fitting a UFH system, especially a “wet” one, liquid screed will completely cover the pipes, leaving no voids or air pockets that could impair heat transference. With an impeccable installation, our screeding company lays the foundations for perfectly even heating.
Another huge benefit of flow screeding is its thermal conductivity – it’s nearly twice as conductive as sand and cement screeds. In real-world terms, this equates to quicker warm-up times, lower energy use and, in theory, at least, reduced utility bills.
What’s more, we also lay our screeds in a thinner layer. Sand and cement usually needs to cover UFH pipes to a depth of 75mm. In comparison, our screeds only require a depth of 30mm. Again, this leads to less time and energy used to heat your chosen room. Of course, this also results in less labour and materials, both of which will drive down the price of your Haywards Heath project.
These benefits run into one of the biggest advantages of all: drying times. While flow screed preparation helps to reduce all-round application time, the speed with which our surfaces dry slashes them. Our liquid screeds dry out so quickly that they’re usually ready to walk on within 24 to 48 hours. This allows your project’s other contractors to work with minimal restriction and delays. Saved time in any area of your project translates into improved cost-effectiveness.
The above only scratches the surface of the many benefits our screeding company and underfloor heating installers deliver. To learn more, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
