My thoughts are turning to screed for our new build, as with the roof scheduled in about 4 weeks, it will be time to get it organised. I keep hearing horror stories of 8 week drying times and cracking floors etc etc, and as i know little (very little) about screed ..I did a bit of reading up. Now I have a good drainage site, with suspended B&B and it will have Kingspan insulation on top. The only issue at present is whether we will go for UFH...as due to budgets...we will be tight... ...but we WANT to have it...So We will look at things from that perspective (optimistic!) I suppose the Floor Area is around 100m2 when all told ...Still not sure if UFH goes everywhere or just in "rooms" ...I mean downstairs WC, Utility Room, Hallway ..is it common to UFH those ? But either way ...Does anyone have any advice as to Cost and timings for various options on Screed for me?.... the builder seemed to think it would require a "standard 75mm" ...I am presuming depth ...I thought that sounded deep but looking online it seems common ...especially as it has to "hide" UFH tubes. I mean does having UFH in there make it "weaker" ? ...Will it be prone to cracking with heat? ...just how accurate is it when people (anecdotal) say it shouldn't be walked on for 4 weeks or worked on for 8?
