Prices for the installation of cement screed

Cement screed is considered the classic under screeds - it is also usually more difficult and expensive to install than other types of screed, and he has by far the longest dry season. In addition, additional necessary measures are often required for installation, such as the production of expansion joints after screed drying in particularly large areas. So here additional services are required, which should always be considered in offers. The execution should be left just in cement screed in any case specialist companies, since there is a high risk of poor performance.

Price requirements for cement screeds

Of course, the structural conditions and the necessary preliminary work as well as the used screed construction and the required layer thickness play an important role. By default, it is designed with a layer thickness of around 60 millimeters. Depending on whether a floating screed for a living area or a composite or separating screed for utility rooms or outdoors is installed, the costs often vary considerably.

Guide prices for the installation of cement screeds

In general, it can be assumed that, in unproblematic cases, the cost of producing the screed will be between 12 and 18 euros per square meter. If additional services are required, it is correspondingly more expensive, lower layer thicknesses, such as in cellars or garages, can make the prices slightly cheaper, because here, the design effort is correspondingly lower. Since the cost of a screed machine, for the helpers and the otherwise necessary tools would be incurred when self-installation, the cost advantage of self-installation is not so big, apart from the fact that damage caused by improper installation can often entail considerable costs. At the most, it is possible to agree with an executing company, possibly to provide part of the substructure in-house, and to negotiate a price advantage. As a rule, however, this will not have any great effect on cement screeds, since the greatest expense is actually incurred when installing the screed. Only if a heat-insulating substructure is desired, or a leveling is required, you can save a little cost here with self-directed work.
