Cement Screed and Self Leveling

Cement screed and self-leveling are both types of floor toppings that are applied over concrete subfloors to create a smooth, level surface for the final floor finish.

 

Cement screed is a thin layer of cement and sand mixture that is applied over the concrete subfloor to create a smooth and level surface. It is typically used to level the surface before laying tiles or other flooring materials. Cement screed is also used to create a decorative finish on floors, walls, and ceilings.

 

Self-leveling, on the other hand, is a type of cementitious material that is applied over the concrete subfloor to create a level surface without the need for screeding. It is self-leveling because it is designed to spread out and flow to create a smooth, level surface on its own. Self-leveling is commonly used for both residential and commercial projects, and it is often used as an underlayment for other flooring materials such as tile, hardwood, and carpet.

 

The main difference between cement screed and self-leveling is the process of installation. Cement screed requires skilled labor to apply and level the mixture, while self-leveling material spreads out on its own to create a level surface without requiring extensive labor. Self-leveling is also typically more expensive than cement screed, but it can save time and labor costs in the long run.
