A Growing Need for Liquid Screed Derbyshire
There were a number of new housing developments announced across Derbyshire in 2018. 140 badly needed ‘build to rent’ homes are planned for Langley Mills, utilising a large patch of overgrown grassland. Matlock has seen the completion of 58 new affordable houses for local people, and there are also plans for 400 new homes off Gritstone Road in Matlock.
The county is badly in need of new affordable homes so the pace of development across Derbyshire is only likely to to intensify over the next five years. Local contractors are telling us that budgets are tight and so they’re on the look-out for innovative technology that reduces costs, and speeds up the pace of construction.
Liquid Screed Offers an Innovative Flooring Solution
Whilst technology often refers to software, it’s not always the case. Liquid screed is a 21st century flooring technology, which is poised to become the default product for housing developments. So what’s new about it? Here are the key benefits it delivers:
- It arrives ready mixed to industry standards
- Liquid screed is poured on-site, averaging 2000² metres each day
- Requires only a small team of screed specialists to facilitate pour
- The mix is self levelling
- Perfect finish every time with no cracking, curling or shrinkage
- Can take light foot traffic after 24 hours
- Force dry after 7 days
Prior to liquid screed, laying a sub floor was a manual process requiring a substantial team, with a working rate 10 times slower to achieve similar results.
Flow Screed is Ideal for Underfloor Heating
Many local councils are now setting sustainability targets for new builds. Underfloor heating is fast becoming a popular sustainable solution with homeowners and contractors. Efficient wet underfloor heating requires water heated to lower temperatures to provide an even spread of heating. This saves on energy and on heating bills, as well as providing a radiant, dust free heating for the home.
Liquid screed was designed with underfloor heating in mind. Its liquid consistency hugs the grid of water pipes, minimising the risk of air voids. Its enhanced thermal conductivity ensures a rapid heat response to every corner of the flooring. As a result the rising heat provides an even warmth fast, with no cold spots. The efficiency of the screed technology means that water temperature – and household bills – can be kept at a lower rate.
