Cement Screed flooring:
Cement screed is a thin layer that is applied to the concrete to ensure that the surface is smooth and even. Its purpose is to lay floor finishes on a smoothed surface.
As cement screed flooring is filling the whole floor as a single piece unlike other types of flooring (tiles size), cracks are almost expected to happen. Cement screed usually requires sealing as it’s porous and you might not get the result you desire.
Day to day maintenance is similar to other flooring material but repairing hairline cracks can be quite problematic depending on the severity.
Average cost ranges for cement screed from $8 to $20 psf.
