Self-leveling concrete uses polymers in the mix to create a very easily flowing concrete that doesn't require so much water but is still 'liquid' enough to smoothly flow into spaces and result in a smooth level surface. That makes it a great covering layer for a number of different applications in property. Its proven ability has led to a popularity that sees it on sale in hardware stores but you don't have to search far to find stories of people having problems with home applied self-leveling concrete notably due to incorrect mix or application. When you call on Charlotte Concrete Stamping for your self-leveling concrete you don't have to worry about that. Instead you can look forward to perfect results and great smooth surfaces.
Speed of Application
One of the great advantages of such smoothly flowing, batter-like concrete is that it takes far less working than normal concrete. In the hands of the experts at Charlotte Concrete Stamping that means that applying the concrete takes only a matter of a few hours. Once poured the self-leveling concrete mix also sets faster than normal concrete and can be ready for the next level of floor preparation in a couple of hours. All of which adds up to a much faster job than you'd expect and with that a lower cost than you'd dare to dream of. Just one more reason for calling on the concrete professionals from Charlotte Concrete Stamping.
While it's not typically used as a flooring surface itself self-leveling concrete is a great way of covering up a world of sins in rough concrete surfaces and so it is possible to use it as an overlay for damaged concrete. Where concrete has been incorrectly mixed or poured it is common for it to have an uneven or pitted surface. Self-leveling concrete naturally flows into those pits and levels out uneven surfaces and since the self-leveling concrete itself can be mixed to have any appearance you like it is a great way of giving a totally new, high quality surface to an existing one.
Not only does self-leveling concrete mean a perfectly smooth surface, it also can be thinner than traditional alternatives. Which is great when you're laying a subfloor prior to putting down a ceramic tile floor for example.

In Floor Heating

If you're planning on underfloor heating based on heating cables or mats set into the floor then you need an absolutely level surface that safely seals the cables. Self-leveling concrete flows perfectly around underfloor heating and seals it in with a perfectly smooth surface. It takes far less work than other approaches and that means it costs less.
