Laying screed yourself

Chappen met het Staenisrooster

Would you like to place your screed yourself? Then it is important to have a good foundation. Your screed must lie perfectly in order to place your floor finish correctly. Nowadays you can easily lay screed yourself, even if you have no experience and this with the Staenis lattice system.

Once the Staenis grid has been set correctly, you should not take the height into account when scraping the screed. As a result, the most difficult task disappears and you can fully focus on feeding, compacting and scraping the screed.

If the screed works are not fully completed within 1 day, you can always continue screeding at a later time, without any time pressure.

The risk of cracks, collapse, loosening, etc. of the floor is negated by dividing the floor structure into very small fields of 0.25 m². The grid ensures that you do not have to worry and that you will achieve a correct, high-quality end result.

For large surface areas, you can save an uncoupling mat (30 euros/m²) with the Staenis grid. View the technical advantages for this.

When using the Staenis grid, you no longer need to place expansion joints, except at the opening of a door. Edge insulation is still needed around the screed though.

Easy to lay your screed yourself, even without experience

Laying screed yourself is a lot easier with the Staenis grid. During damming and levelling, you can easily follow the height reference points (screed bars or screed guides) of the reinforcement grid, so that your screed will lie nicely flat. Once the Staenis grid has been set correctly, you do not have to take the height into account when pouring the screed. This way you can fully focus on laying, compacting and polishing the screed. The wheelbarrow structure divides the screed tensions, so that you always get a top-quality end result. And you also don't have to screed a large area in one go. If the screed work is not finished in one day, you can continue screeding whenever it suits you. Choose your floor structure from the list above and view a tailor-made manual for laying screed.

Laying the screed yourself with the Staenis grid = saving

By laying your screed yourself with the Staenis grid, you are guaranteed to obtain a professional result, and you can also make considerable savings. You save enormously, especially on small surfaces, because you will not be charged a fixed price by a screeder. With large surfaces you also save on a decoupling mat, a saving of 30 euros per m² on average. Furthermore, with the Staenis grid you do not need a steel reinforcement mesh to lay your screed. Also, when you work with the Staenis grid, there is automatically an expansion joint in your floor every half metre. This means that it is not necessary to place a real expansion joint in the screed and in the tiles.
