Pre-bagged self-levelling screeds vs. traditional sand and cement screeds

Saint-Gobain Weber Hong-Kong

When choosing the right products for your flooring project, you need to consider not just the cost of materials but also the project timeline, building usage and final finish as well.

A pre-bagged self-levelling screed has all the ingredients combined and only needs the correct volume of water before use.

Traditional screeds need to be batched onsite with a mix of sand and cement with  potential for other materials such as aggregate, plasticisers or fibres depending on the installation.

What are the benefits of using pre-bagged screed over traditional sand and cement screed?

Time saving

Self-levelling screed is liquid in nature and can be applied via a pump which saves mixing and application time when compared to manually mixing with traditional sand and cement.

Fewer materials needed

Compared to traditional sand and cement screed, pre-bagged self-levelling require considerably less product without compromising the strength or finish.

Consistent quality

Pre-bagged self-levelling is manufactured in a quality-controlled environment. The same level of quality assurance is different from mixing sand and cement on site which makes the process open to human error.

Technical support from the manufacturer

The manufacturer will provide technical support and assistance to ensure the best products for the job are used and applied using best practice methods.
