The floor needed to be seamless with a slip-resistant finish that was comfortable to bare feet in the shower areas and hard wearing, to withstand scuffing from studded boots and shoes.
Contractors S Carter & Son removed the failed vinyl flooring and then prepared the floating screed, ensuring that the underfloor heating was not disturbed and that the substrate was keyed ready to receive the new screed.
The floor was primed with RonaFloor Epoxy Primer which then had kiln-dried sand cast into it, to improve the key. After curing of the first coat, a second coat of primer was applied and the blue RonaFloor Epoxy Floor Mortar was applied to the tacky primer as a floor screed and a 150mm high coving.
