Liquid Screeds: The Future of Flooring in Birmingham

Tired of cracked, uneven floors? So are we! As Birmingham’s top provider of liquid floor screeding services, we’ve seen our fair share of cement disaster zones over the years. While flowing cement screed in Birmingham may seem like an easy, inexpensive fix, we’re here to spill the tea on why quality liquid screeds are worth splashing out for long-term durability.

Take it from the specialists who have spent over a decade transforming residential and commercial spaces across the region – fluid screeds aren’t just the future, they’re what we need underfoot now for flawless floors that stand the test of time. We get that cement still has its fans out there stuck doing things the old dusty way, but in this blog, we’ll break down exactly why liquid trumps cement on everything from install time and ease to longevity and resilience. Curious to unlock the secrets of a smooth, headache-free screed?

Differences Between Flowing Cement Screed and Liquid Screed

  • With the flowing cement method, you have to manually mix sand, cement and water until you get the texture right. Once it’s mixed, you pour it out and try your best to evenly spread and level it smooth. Not always an easy process, and it eats up a lot of precious time.
  • Liquid screed makes things so much simpler – it arrives on-site straight from the factory already mixed to perfection, ready to be pumped out and smoothly applied by our experienced professionals.
  • Shrinkage cracks are very common in traditional flowing screeds leading to an uneven surface. Our advanced liquid screed technology minimises shrinkage and cracks substantially.
  • Flowing cement screed in Birmingham requires at least 21 days to dry out completely before applying floor coverings. Our quick-drying liquid screeds can be walked on after 24 hours and be ready for flooring after just 7 days.
  • Liquid screeds offer up to 10 times more thermal conductivity compared to traditional screeds, leading to far better underfloor heating efficiency.
