Liquid floor screeds have been used for over 20 years in the UK with ongoing research and development driving ever improving mix designs.

Express Liquid Screeds use the very latest in levelling and pumping equipment, backed by many years of experience in providing various screeding solutions. We pride ourselves in achieving the very highest levels of customer satisfaction.

An example of a typical liquid screed and sub floor construction…
The benefits of liquid screed are enormous. Large spaces can be covered in a short period of time, reducing man hours. Shallower floor depths can be achieved and set to laser accuracy. Liquid screed can be bonded or un-bonded, like traditional screeds.
Liquid screed can also be used for renovations projects, as well as new-build developments. With the use of additives, a liquid screed applied around heating pipes eliminates air-pockets and improves the efficiency of the heating system. Liquid screed is also used for acoustic insulation where “Sound Bar” systems are used.
