What’s the best screed for underfloor heating?

If you have a solid floor and want to set up a water-based or wet underfloor heating system, liquid screed is perfect for the job, this is due to its solid floor properties whilst allowing the transfer of heat to pass through. There are two common types of screed and that’s both dry and self-levelling types. They not only allow you to prepare the surface for the finishing floor covering, but they intake the warmth from the underfloor heating pipework and deploy it into the room above. Liquid screed helps maintain a comfortable atmosphere whilst reducing energy and running costs. Its recommended that after the underfloor heating is laid in place, you should apply the screed as quickly as poss

Concrete vs Liquid Screed – what’s the difference?

Ready mix concrete will always be prepared on site in order to meet the clients specifications through using measurements of aggregates, sand, water and cement mixed together with any desired additives in order to achieve the required results. Liquid screed is similar in the fact it contains these components as well, however what makes it different is the amount and size of the aggregates used compared with ready mix concrete. Liquid screed uses a smaller amount of aggregates which means there’s a smoother consistency, this makes the screed closer to a liquid than a solid making this ideal for floor installations. As mentioned, there are different consistencies making each suitable for diffe

Liquid screed floor preparation guide

Our underfloor heating systems are developed in a way which is maintenance free/low maintenance. Once our systems have been installed it can be ran by itself. Any additional maintenance works that are needed will be undertaken above ground at the manifold boiler position with minimal disruption. Preparing for installation Weathertight – The building ist be made weathertight i.e the roof and external openings must be fitted with final fixtures or clear polythene. Exposed edges – You must add temporary formwork to the exposed edges (e.g. door openings or level changes). Clean – Make sure you clean the area ensuring that no dust or debris is hanging about. Underfloor heating – We recommend usin
