Step 1: Prepare the Surface

The first step in applying the Weber screed is to prepare the surface on which it will be applied. This includes cleaning the surface of any dust, debris, or other contaminants. Please use our Screed calculator, which would assist in the calculation of the amount of product required.

Step 2: Priming of the substrate

Using Weberfloor Primer, prime the substrate, do not add water. Weberfloor Primer must be applied in one or two coats depending on the surface condition and porosity. Recommended application is two coats.

Step 3: Mix the Screed

The next step is to mix the screed. This should be done by adding the screed and water to a mixing container. The screed should be mixed thoroughly until it reaches a smooth consistency. An electric mixer makes this task much easier.

Step 4: Apply the Screed

Once the screed is mixed, it is ready to be applied. Pour the mixed screed onto the prepared surfaces, immediately spreading it out with a notched rake suitable for the required thickness.  Gently push and pull the product to aid in leveling and smoothing the surface.

Step 5: Finish the Screed

Roll the wet product with a spiked roller slowly but thoroughly to remove air bubbles and improve leveling before the setting process advances.

Step 6: Cure the Screed

Finally, the screed should be cured. This is the process of allowing the screed to dry and harden. Curing should be done in a controlled environment, at ambient temperatures within a temperature range of between 10°C – 30°C, and would be cured in 24 hours. The final top cover can then be applied once the product is set. Once the screed is cured Weber Joint seal can be used for all relevant construction joints

In conclusion, applying Weber's screed is a simple process that both professional contractors and DIY enthusiasts can do. By following the above steps, you can ensure a smooth and even application of the screed, providing a durable and long-lasting surface for your construction project.
