Screed concrete: levelling the playing field
Screeding concrete is the process of striking off excess concrete to allow a new slab to achieve the desired level and grade. Both straightedges and power screeds are used in the process, depending on what’s needed for the job.
The team at Policrete is meticulous when it comes to screeding concrete. It’s the final, imperative step before finishing the concrete flooring to spec. Screeding is necessary when a brand new slab is poured. It can also be added to increase the visual appeal of an existing concrete slab.
What makes screeding so essential?
- Provides an even base for other floorings
- Completes the addition of hydronic heating
- Creates a flat surface for the finishing process
- Fixes bumps, cracks, and irregularities in an existing base
