Floor screed costs
During the development of any building, the application of floor screed is one of the most important stages of laying a new floor. Screed is a mixture of sand, water, cement and other sand-based aggregates, which helps create a sturdy, even layer of flooring – a perfect base for any flooring finish.
- Type of screed used.
- Quality of the screed.
- Depth of screed required.
- Overall size of the floor.
- Drying and trafficking time of the screed.
- How many people are working on the project.
- Geographic location.
Due to these factors, it can be difficult to get an exact figure from an online calculator. However, while there are many variables, it helps to have a general figure to use when planning a project:
- Traditional screed costs between £11 and £14 per square metre, based on a thickness of 75mm covering 125 square metres per day.
- Flow screed costs between £10 and £16 per square metre, based on a thickness of 50mm covering up to 1,500 square metres daily.
