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

“Policrete offered great service from the beginning”

Dale Richards

"The floor has come up brilliantly, and their professionalism throughout the project was some of the best I've experienced. Due to my store being situated in a shopping centre, most of the works had to be conducted outside usual business hours and Policrete accommodated for this and were very flexible."

Benjamin Bese

"The quality of the floor was excellent in every aspect, from the grinding to polishing. The service was fantastic, and the Policrete crew was on time every day. I would highly recommend Policrete."

Kirsty Owen

"Policrete offered great service from the beginning — even when I made changes to the start date. Excellent communication whilst completing the job and kept me updated. Great to deal with a company that was efficient and delivered a excellent end result."

Aleisha Jane Littler

"The team at Policrete created a beautiful reception benchtop for our salon. My boss wanted crystals scattered throughout the bench, the results are fantastic! Very impressive work."

Leigh Rowe

"Used these guys to do our warehouse kitchen bar! Awesome job and even better to deal with!"

Paul Warner

"Your customer-based focus and professionalism is enduring and admiring. You have surrounded yourself with other great sales people, polishers, carpenters, and concreters that know and love their craft."

Frequently asked questions

Concrete screeding is important for a number of reasons:

  • To improve appearance: Existing concrete slabs may have damage, stains, roughness or poor colouring. Applying a screed layer will cover all of these inconsistencies.
  • To provide an even base: Other flooring and finishes — like linoleum, vinyl, parquet, or tiling — require an even base to look and feel their best underfoot.

There are five main types of screed finishes available to you, each with their own benefits and application:

  • Cement-based screed:Sand and cement are combined at a ratio of 3 to 1.
  • Mastic asphalt screed:A bitumen, sand, and stone dust mixture is heated to a high temperature and poured.
  • Synthetic resin screed: Creates a water-resistant seal across concrete flooring.
  • Calcium sulphate screed: This gypsum-based conglomerate is preferred to cement screed across large areas.
  • Magnesite screed: This is mainly found in older buildings (pre-WWII), and uses wood as chips.

Costs vary based on a range of factors, including:

  • Type of screeding
  • Surface area
  • Job site challenges
