Screed is a common building material that is primarily used when manufacturing concrete floors to create a smooth and consistent finish.
It’s usually put in place before the final flooring application is installed, but due to its excellent versatility, it can also be left exposed to provide an industrial finish that is suitable for a range of environments.
Typically, screed is made up of one part cement to three-five parts sand and it can be designed to provide various thickness levels depending on the requirements of the job. Screed can even go in between conventional concrete mixes to help even out a floor, and it’s often an essential requirement when constructing a new floor.
While sometimes people opt not to use screed, in these instances floors can become bumpy or uneven so we’d always recommend considering floor screed.

Benefits Of Using Screed
Screed refers to a thin, flat layer of material that is applied to the surface of a floor. It plays a vital role in construction and is commonly used in the preparation of floors prior to the final flooring material being installed. Some of the benefits of using concrete floor screed include:
- Levelling and smoothing – Screed helps to create a level and smooth surface on which the final flooring material can be placed. This is important when looking to achieve a professional finish and ensuring the proper installation of tiles, wood or other coverings.
- Surface regularity – Screed helps to achieve a consistent and uniform surface which is essential for preventing irregularities and bumps on the final flooring. A level surface is aesthetically pleasing and contributes to the overall quality of the project.
- Load distribution – Using screed can help to distribute the load evenly across the floor. This will provide structural support and prevent stress points. This is crucial for the long-term durability and stability of the building.
