    Screed over bitumen paint/adhesive

    Screed over bitumen paint/adhesive 29th Sep 10 at 12:51 PM

    I need to level a concreat floor that has a thin layer of bitumen paint or adheasive on the top.

    I really don't want to have to remove this. We want to lay a real wood floor.

    I was hoping to re screed just a thin layer to level then paint with a damp proof sealent. Then lay a damp proof underlay then the wood as a floating floor.

    What is the best screed to use on top of Bitumen?

    Cheers D

    P.S. there is no real evidence of any damp issue however the wood floor is expensive so I want to protect it as much as posible!!!

  • While I oft bemoan Xmas being a retail festival. It's strange today many are bitter that shops are REDUCING prices, usually its the opposite

  • And leave people held hostage to high Xmas prices? Our tradition was Xmas discounts spread in Nov/Dec not on one day

  • John Lewis website is down - its price matching black friday deals. Maybe its a good day to buy cheap extra servers?
