Floor screeding companies are aware that solid flooring is best produced with the use of a good screed mix. It is usually in the preparation of this important mixture that many screeding companies differ.
A screed mix of good quality is not that easy to produce as this will usually depend on the type of flooring over which the mix is set to be poured into. Floor Screeding companies additionally make use of construction programmes where screed moisture is not given enough time to evaporate. This is hardly recommended since a number of floor finishes tend to have adverse reactions to screed mixes having large amounts of moisture.
Ideally, for a given screed mixture to work well, the moisture should be allowed to evaporate completely. This should result in a thickness ranging from 30 to 70 millimetres. Needless to say, a generally thick screed mix no longer requires further reinforcement as this has effectively combined several different compounds.
This does not mean, however, that a screed mix having less thickness is hardly useful. Bonding is one effective method that is often explored in this case. Normally, plastic particles are added in a thin screed mixture, although in some instances, an extra screed layer is the material added into the originally-prepared mix.
The actual screed application should not be too hard to do especially in the hands of an expert screeder. However, the waiting time can be a bit long as allowing the mix to dry up completely is a slow process. Some workers may attempt to force the screed to dry up as fast as possible, but this will only cause the flooring to curl up.
Given the complexity of preparing and applying a screed mix onto a finished flooring, it is always a good idea to look for an experienced screed mixer. Floor screeding companies additionally make use of various types of machinery that allow them to produce quality screed material, in order to get the best screed mixture possible.
