Will you believe me when I tell you that a screed floor can actually be warmer than stone of tiles? Cement has a very high thermal mass, which really just means that it can hold temperature.
So, for winter on our doorstep, your cement based foto will keep your room nice and cozy once the heaters are switched off as it absorbs and retains the heat which in turn lowers he usage of heating units and thus saves on electricity.
The very smooth appearance of a screed floor works well with carpets and rugs in terms of a new interior design or style but also insisting to heat insulation.
Durability, a very strong floor for a home or commercial area (26-28mpa strength)
Cost effectiveness and longevity, a floor that well outlast your initial investment. Rarely needs replacement and remains time-less and classic.
Cement-based floors rarely need replacement , especially if properly installed and maintained.
We believe on a two-bucket system one being filled with clean water the other with Luke-warm water and sunlight detergent (Do note use any product that may contain – ammonia)
Use a good quality mop by applying mop in detergent water and cleaning a section of the floor and then applying contaminated mop in to clean water before applying it back into the detergent bucket and continue process throughout.
Odorless, marble screed floors is odorless and does not hold pet smells, dust, fleas etc. A very hygienic floor choice.
Non toxic, these Floors do not emit any VOCs ( volatile organic compounds)
Will it crack?
A question we get on a weekly basis from clients is “will it crack” . By nature, cement is not flexible so temperatures causing the contraction and expansion might result in finer or thin cracks. These cracks are considered normal and add to natural element and the look and feel. Larger, more linear cracks are mostly caused by lack of expansion joints which are routed in the substrate m. We will ensure that we have cut these joints into the screeds before applying a cement based finish as this will help eliminate these larger unsightly cracks .
Screeding a floor is the simple act of applying a well blended mixture of cement with graded aggregates and water to a floor base, in order to form a sturdy sun floor that is capable of taking on the final floor finish or act as final wearing surface. Nonetheless, as simple as this process might sound, there is a lot more to screeding than trowling on the cement sand mixture . It is on the most vital steps in flooring that plays a major role in ensuring quality, finish and durability of the entire flooring.
