Floor Levelling

Floor leveling, also known as floor screeding, is a crucial process in construction and renovation projects that involves preparing a smooth and even surface for the installation of flooring materials. It is necessary when the existing floor has irregularities, such as bumps, slopes, or unevenness, which can pose problems when laying down new flooring materials like tiles, hardwood, vinyl, or carpet.

The purpose of floor leveling is to create a flat and stable foundation, ensuring that the finished flooring will be visually appealing, durable, and functional. By addressing any imperfections or unevenness in the subfloor, floor leveling helps prevent issues such as cracked tiles, loose planks, or an uneven surface that can cause tripping hazards.

The process of floor leveling typically begins by thoroughly inspecting the subfloor to identify any areas of concern. These may include high spots, low spots, or depressions caused by structural issues, previous installations, or natural settling over time. Once the problem areas are identified, appropriate measures can be taken to level the floor.

Our Technique

Floor leveling techniques can vary depending on the extent of the unevenness and the type of flooring materials to be installed. Here are some common methods used:

  1. Self-leveling compound: This is a popular choice for minor unevenness. A self-leveling compound is a cementitious mixture that can be poured over the existing subfloor. It spreads out and fills in low spots, creating a smooth and level surface. It is typically used for thin applications and dries quickly, allowing for faster installation of the final flooring.

  2. Floor screed: For more significant irregularities, a traditional floor screed may be employed. This involves mixing sand, cement, and water to create a mortar-like mixture. The screed is poured onto the subfloor and leveled using tools such as a straightedge or a screed board. This method is suitable for thicker applications and can accommodate greater variations in floor leveling.

  3. Subfloor repair: In some cases, structural issues may be causing the unevenness. In such situations, it is necessary to address the underlying problem before proceeding with floor leveling. This may involve repairing or reinforcing the subfloor to ensure its stability and eliminate future issues.

Regardless of the method used, floor leveling requires skill and precision. It is important to follow manufacturer guidelines, adhere to building codes, and hire experienced professionals for complex or large-scale projects. Proper preparation, accurate measurements, and attention to detail are essential to achieve a level surface that meets the requirements of the chosen flooring materials.
