Looking for London Floor Screeding Contractors?
The UK’s capital is currently in a race to deliver 65,000 new homes each year in order to meet Sadiq Khan’s London Plan. At present the figures aren’t looking good; just 31,723 new properties were built in 2017 (including conversions and changes in uses) which is just over half of the target set. These disappointing figures are being set against more robust results in the rest of Britain with some regions even exceeding the quotas set.
So what’s the problem in London? There are any number of reasons given for the shortfall, from Brexit to battles over further incursions into the green belt. But what all our clients are talking about is the fallout – an ongoing squeeze on profit margins. The race is currently on to find ways of enhancing productivity, without compromising on quality. Which is where Liquid Screed Direct enters the conversation.
Advanced Technology Cuts Costs and Enhances Productivity
What every contractor is looking for are solutions that save time and money. Liquid Screed Direct has just that. We provide flow screed which delivers high quality sub floors fast and efficiently. Our London contractors are describing this advanced flooring technology as a ‘generational shift’ from the manual process to its fully automated replacement.
Until fairly recently, the ‘go to’ solution for sub flooring was ‘dry’ or ‘traditional’ screed. This is a manual mix of 4:1 sand to cement. It requires considerable skill to achieve the right mix for the environment, and the stakes are high. If the mix is too wet, this leads to damp, whilst a screed that’s too dry can result in cracking and curling. All costly faults to remediate.
Designed as the second generation of floor screeding materials, liquid screed is pre-mixed to industry standards. It is poured on site, using a small team of screed specialists. The mix is self levelling, and a perfect finish is guaranteed every time.
The range of benefits offered by this 21st century technology include:
- Speed: 2000m² per day can be easily achieved for an average 500-1000m² per day
- Rapid Dry: Once poured the flooring will be dry enough to take light floor traffic after just 24 hours
- Force Drying: After 7 days the floor can be force dried
- Excellent Finish: Contractors report that there is minimal risk of cracking, curling or shrinkage when using liquid screed.
