Rising Demand for Floor Screeding Northampton
Northampton Borough Council is under pressure to provide new homes and affordable housing. The target for new homes in Northamptonshire is an ambitious 37,000 new dwellings by 2021, rising to 80,000 in 2031. This goal became a little more manageable last November, when planning permission for 3,000 new homes as part of the Dallington Grange development was approved. 300 of these are designated as ‘affordable housing’ but the planning committee noted that this isn’t enough.
Contractors working hard to meet local targets and tight budgets, are looking for ways to reduce costs, and improve productivity. Innovative tech is increasingly providing the construction industry with ways to work faster and smarter. Liquid Screed Direct is proud to be a trusted supplier of one of the solutions which is currently being adopted in order to speed up flooring and underfloor heating installation.
Floor Screeding Northampton for Guaranteed Excellence
For over a century dry screed has been the accepted method for sub-flooring installation. This is a manual process which requires a team of skilled installers. Liquid screed minimises the manual element and speeds up installation:
- Liquid screed is pre-mixed for flooring excellence every time
- The screed is poured on site, at a rate of 2000² metres per day
- Installation requires only a small team of screed specialists
- The liquid mix is self-levelling
- There’s minimal risk of cracking, curling or shrinkage
- Light foot traffic is possible after just 24 hours
- The floor can be force dried after 7 days
Floor Screeding Northampton for Underfloor Heating Installation
Demand for energy saving technology is going to grow considerably over the next decade. One popular indication of this is the growth in demand for underfloor heating. Young families like the dust free, radiant heat and they appreciate the cost saving benefits it brings. Consequently, liquid screed was developed with underfloor heating installations in mind.
The liquid consistency of the mix is ideal for wet underfloor heating. Flow screed naturally hugs water pipes closely, ensuring no air voids. It’s also designed for enhanced thermal conductivity. Heat flows rapidly from the water pipes across the room, providing even distribution of radiant heat. Rapid heat distribution allows for the use of lower water temperatures, which is a saving for homeowners.
