Ardex Fast Drying Screeds vs Traditional Screedsjameswarner
Good quality screeding is all that’s behind a smooth level floor. Screeding is necessary, but traditional screeds can take a few months to dry out before the final floor covering can be laid down. Whether a commercial or domestic project, if you’re on a strict deadline to get the project completed or if you need a fast turnaround then a traditional screed isn’t the best option. The time you spend in waiting for the screed to dry out could delay your completion date. For those on strict deadlines this simply won’t do. The solution? Fast drying screeding, or more specifically, ARDEX rapid drying screed cements.
- For many, the problems start when you lay a screed and then discover it’s going to take longer than planned before you can install the final floorcovering. This has a knock on effect of delaying the fitting of your skirting boards or installation of your new kitchen. Never an ideal scenario, but you would be surprised how many people find themselves in this situation.
- Never run the risk of laying your floor over a screed that hasn’t had time to fully dry out. It’s very simple – the moisture content could wreak havoc: wooden floors may warp, tiling might lift, the screed may become unstable and uneven.
- Cutting corners by trying to reduce drying time could have a serious impact on your purse and patience.
Fast drying screeding is the solution if you want to lay a smooth, level floor – and fast.
