Floor Screeding Contractors Kent

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kent Building Services Ltd required the services of floor screeding contractors Kent.  The project was for a new build property to replace the existing house which was demolished to make way.

All preparation for the screed was made before Speed Screed attended site, leaving the operatives with just the laying of the floor screed.  The screed was to be laid onto celotex insulation with underfloor heating pipes laid on top of the insulation.

The total area of the project was 213m2 and required a 60mm screed depth.

 

 

The client required a fast drying screed so as not to delay the laying of the floor coverings within the property.   With ceramic tiles, and oak flooring it was important to ensure that the screed was dry before attempting to lay the coverings, and the time scale was very important to the client.

 

 

Kerakoll’s Keracem Eco was the ideal product for the job.

  • Keracem Eco can be laid at 55mm over heating pipes, and met with the 60mm requirement.
  • Safe laying of ceramic tiles after 24 hours and hardwood floors after just 5 days.

This meant that there was no hold up in program due to the drying of the screed.

Keracem Eco was delivered directly to site by Trimline Group and the screeding sand was loose tipped by Aggregate Industries.

The screed was mixed on site using the latest hi-tech Putmeister M760 screed pump, which delivered the screed exactly where it was required.
