In most instances you will need to start by applying screed to level out the floor. It’s not easy buying the correct amount of screed, but at Branagan Flooring Services we like to lend a helping hand where we can.
Like anything, preparation is the key to success – fail to prepare and prepare to fail, so they say. Screed will help level out uneven floors and other surfaces and is a vital starting place if your new floor is going to look as good as possible. But how much screed do you need?

What is screed?
Screed is a levelling material made up of 3-5 parts sand and 1 part cement. It is usually applied at approximately 75mm thick onto a concrete subfloor. A trowel is then used to even out the material leaving you with a perfectly even surface to lay your brand new floor.
