Yesterday was our first installation after a well deserved festive break for our installation teams. Our task was to correct levels and surface finish left my another screed contractor.
The existing screed was prepared by means of diamond abrasion, two coats of acrylic primer were applied, all holes and gaps filled and sealed / shuttered and then 114 bags of Instarmac’s Level It product were mixed / pumped and installed to an average 7-10mm depth across two new build properties. Light work for our Utiform Quattro machine which can mix and pump up to 220 bags an hour!
The main contractor was delighted with the results and has invited us back to quote on all of their future flowing screed installations. They are also going to be using us for all of their footings, concrete oversites and concrete pumping ongoing. Happy days!

When our customer was presented with this awful floor he was asked to tile on, he knew there was only one company he was going to call! We visited and talked through the end client’s chosen floor coverings, project timescales and budget. We opted for a fibre re-enforced levelling compound over a gritted primer, due to it’s great finish and ability to be tiled on within just three hours after installation!
Having fallen behind, we put the customer back on track to complete their project on time. Levelling compounds are a great solution to level out and refresh un-level or to smooth rough floors. They can be applied at depths as low as 2mm. Then apply floor coverings the same day with minimal disruption to your project or everyday living.

This was a complex project which presented us with multiple types of existing floor surfaces and a newly installed anhydrite liquid screed (installed by a 3rd party). Both the new and old floors were quite un-level. The owner of the house had already installed their kitchen onto their new screed, but unfortunately the floor was not in good enough condition or at the right level to be able to install their chosen floor covering. To keep the floor build up to a minimum, we recommended a thin section, bagged levelling screed which meant that we could set a starting datum of just 2mm over the high areas of the floor. The variation in the existing levels resulted in a 35mm maximum depth in places.
Firstly we provided the customer with one of our digital thermo-hygrometers to test the moisture content in the new anhydrite screed which was confirmed to be under 75% relative humidity. The underfloor heating was also commissioned in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines. We then opted for two different types of primer to ensure a good, lasting bond and to avoid any reaction between the calcium sulphate screed and our cementitious bagged screed.
Using our Utiform Quattro mixer meant that despite the short working times of the chosen product, we are still able to install high volumes of bags without compromising on surface finish. The end result… a perfectly level floor that the customer can now install their Karndean flooring directly on top of. The cherry on the cake… as it’s ready to walk on in 3 hours, the customer was back in their house in time for dinner. There are no drying times for this bagged compound, so the flooring installer is starting first thing tomorrow. A very happy customer!
