Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Here are some of the most common questions asked about Floorcrete and their answers. If you have a question that isn't covered on the page, please click here to contact us.

How much does it cost?
View Answer

Obviously costs will vary from job to job, but in most cases the Floorcrete system gives savings over traditional hand-applied sand and cement screed. Floors over 400M2 tend to work out cheaper per square meter. For a detailed quote, please contact us.

How soon can you walk on the new floor?
View Answer

Within 24 to 48 hours. With a conventional sand and cement screed this can be as much as 7 days. Unlike a conventional floor, a Floorcrete floor does not require curing after application.

How long will it take to lay my floor?
View Answer

Floorcrete screed can be applied at up to 2,000M2 per day. Average rate is 500-1,000M2 per day. Conventional screeds take much longer - typically, only 100-150M2 per day.

What Quality Control is used on a Floorcrete floor?
View Answer

Floorcrete flowing floor screeds are produced under BS EN 13454. A traditional hand-mixed floor screed is often inconsistent and suffers from poor quality control.

How far can the screed be pumped?
View Answer

Horizontal: 180M
Vertical: 60M (equivalent to 25 storeys)
