As every aspect of our homes is subject to wear and tear, a homeowner might feel the need to renovate or redecorate his home. One point of renovation can be a house’s flooring scheme. Whether you have a tiled, wooden or carpeted floor, having a levelled and sturdy base is essential for a floor that is beyond compare.
With this in mind, we’re going to discuss what floor screeding is and other questions you might have before subjecting your home to this significant renovation.
What is Screeding?
Screeding utilizes a specialized variety of concrete that is mixed and poured onto your home’s concrete base. Then, the mixture is levelled and smoothened so that when it’s finished, you’ll have the floor ready for installation of flooring materials such as tiles, wood, and carpets.
Can I Choose Screeding as My Final Flooring Option?
Yes, you certainly can! It doesn’t matter if you have a commercial, industrial, or residential space; if you decide to have the final screeded floor as your option, you’re good to go! However, most residential areas would opt to have the screeded floor as a precedent to a flooring option like tiles or wood.
If you’re into the minimalist and cost-efficient option, sticking to the final screeding product is a practical choice. But, if you want to explore your creative side and would want to adore the floor with other choices, you can discuss it with your trusted service contractor.
How Long Do I Have to Wait Before a Screeding is Completed?
As most service contractors would state, a screeding project is completed for a minimum of 12 hours to a maximum of 48 hours. However, if you’re planning to put furniture and fixtures on the floor, you’ll have to wait until 28-30 days. As per the flooring choices, a one-week waiting period is recommended before installation.
Where Can Floor Screeding be Done?
The good thing about floor screeding is that it can be accomplished into any property or any areas. Screeding is very flexible and heavy-duty that it can accommodate your flooring needs.
What are Preparations to be Done Before a Floor Screeding?
Before a floor screeding is done, several processes must be completed first. The processes include diamond grinding, crack and joint repairs, shot blasting and scarifying.
Is There Any Maintenance that Needs to be Done for Screeding?
One of the greatest things about floor screeding is that it requires minimal to none maintenance. This makes screeding as one of the most cost-efficient flooring option.
