Frequently asked questions

What is screed?

Screed concrete refers to a technique to level and smooth a freshly poured concrete surface. A specialised tool is used to distribute and flatten the concrete evenly. Read our essential guide to screed for more information.

How long does screed take to dry?

The drying process is dependant on various factors such as temperature, humidity, what mix is used and the thickness of the screed. In general, the concrete screeding process can take anywhere between a few hours and several days to dry. 

Don't forget that drying is different from curing. When screed or concrete dries it will form a hard skin and will appear dry however the curing process is the removal of all the water from within the mix and that can take time to evaporate fully. This contributes to the strength and durability that comes with using concrete so do ensure you do not add significant weight for several days after laying. 

How to screed a floor

To screed a floor, pour concrete evenly over the area and use a screed board or tool to spread and level it. Move the screed back and forth in a sawing motion, filling low spots and removing excess material. Repeat until the surface is smooth and level. Allow the screed to dry and cure before proceeding with the floor installation. Looking to buy screed tight away? Visit to buy small load quantities of screed.
