In depth Screed Analysis

This is where we go into great detail with the screed products on the market.  What are the benefits and what are the pitfalls for each product.

Which Product is Best?

We compare products like for like, and give feedback from the people who are laying the screeds.  Hands on analysis of how the product finishes, and how the product is likely to perform in the long term.

Total Systems

We look at the whole system from the insulation to the screed and smoothing compound.  Perhaps a change in the floor build up?  Less screed and more insulation?

Noise Control

Want to hear which acoustic systems meet Robust Details?  We break down the performance so you can see exactly what they provide and which system would best suit you.
