The secret of cement sand screed

by miamigardens

The screed is used when the surface must be leveled. The main components that are needed for screed are the Sand of Veliky Novgorod and Cement. The amount of material necessary for screed is calculated from the ratio of one to three. Sand and cement are mixed in any large container and water is poured gradually. The correct mixture should have a density of tight dough.

The basis on which it is planned to fill the screed must be cleaned in advance of dust and various garbage. Before filling the screed, the base must be slightly moistened with water. It is very important that the floor is not wet, but slightly wet.

In order not to make a mistake with the height of the screed and make it as uniform as possible, it is necessary to nail wooden planks around the entire perimeter of the room. The screed is leveled with a special spatula with a long handle, or a simple board. It is necessary to ensure that the screed does not crack.

The screed must be moistened daily with a small amount of water, so that it does not dry out. If the screed loses all moisture too quickly, it will certainly crack. After the screed finally dries, it must be sanded as much as possible. For this, sandpaper paper is perfect.
