Screeding Northchapel West Sussex	 UK

Several plasterers in West Sussex will also offer screeding services, by which a smooth, level floor surface is created using a sand and cement mix. Most often screed is poured on top of a concrete sub-floor to be left as a wearing floor surface, to encase underfloor heating pipes or to be covered with a floor finish (such as floor boards, carpet, vinyl or tiles). Enhanced durability, quality and finish is the end result of an effectively laid screed floor. The hand mixing of screed must only be used where small areas are involved, otherwise a proper screed pump should be used to speedily produce an even, smooth mixture of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this fine mix straight to its exact location, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and similar equipment.
