finding you screed in the UK
Thick screeds, the sort of thing that you put down if you are building or have dug up existing floors, come in either cement or gypsum based varieties.
Typically cement based can be applied by hand or by screed pump whereas gypsum based screeds are pumped.
If you are using underfloor heating with water pipes, rather than electric mats, then gypsum based screeds are better.
If you are only screeding a small area, say less than 60-80 square metres, then hand applied is likely to be more cost effective.
Of course these are generalisations, if you wanted to screed 80 square metres on the fourth storey of a property then pumped screed would probably be cheaper, and easier.
