How it's Installed
Hand Lay concreting
Manual floating of Concrete Hand Lay

The Hand Lay concreting method is a bit of an art form and requires highly skilled and experienced experts to carry out. We typically recommend the hand lay method for smaller, less complex jobs where factors such as a high level tolerance are not a main priority. However, we are still able to achieve greater tolerances of flatness during the finishing process by using a Power Float. This method is fast but effective and can deliver great functional floors if installed by our time served craftsmen.

Hand Lay Concreting / Skip Float
Where flatness isn't a concern

We tend to recommend Concrete Hand Lay on floors where a high level of tolerance is not required. Examples would include; floors that will be covered in a screed or a latex, floors to be tiled or simply for basic residential use.

Our Concreting Process
Hand Lay Concrete Pours

Concrete is distributed either from a concrete pump or the back of a mixer wagon and then spread with rakes to a general levelness. More accurate spot levels are then troweled into the wet concrete to give a final level to work to. Finally, a long metal lamp is used to smooth the concrete to these final levels. A skipfloat is run over the surface to finish.
