A form of surface material which is fast becoming highly sought after throughout the area, liquid screed services in North Wales are on the rise and it’s no wonder when you compare and contrast it to conventional cement methods. So, what are some of the ways in which liquid screed is better for your business?


As liquid screed is compact and easy, you can process much more volume per day and almost 20 times as much as cement. The screed can fill up to 2000m2 which is far superior to cement at roughly 100-150m2 daily.


Again, liquid screed comes out on top in this regard as its shrinkage is minimal, meaning that you’re getting far more value for your money than in cement where shrinking is common. As well, the dreaded ‘curling’ that cement is susceptible to upon application is not an issue with liquid screed and you won’t be damaging your surface if you walk over it after 48 hours which is 5 days less than advised for cement.

A common question is, “how long before it's ready” when it comes to being able to access your surface after application is complete. When it comes to cement, it needs curing and to be covered before you even think about setting foot on it. Additionally, as previously mentioned, some contractors will say that cement needs anywhere up to 9 weeks before it’s fit for use whereas it is merely 40 days for liquid screed. However, you can always force dry your screed after a week or so but will have to wait for the whole period when it comes to cement.

Cost: Monetary and Environmental

You may be surprised to hear that all of the benefits of liquid screed come at a reduced cost in comparison to hand-applied cement. However, it’s always best to contact a liquid screed supplier beforehand for the finer details. A good note to finish one is a positive one and that’s the case here as 98% of liquid screed is recycled goods, meaning that you’re being economically friendly during your construction.
