Concrete slabs are found everywhere-from your parking garages to paved roads, your kitchen to your bedroom.
Ever wondered why they are so flat and smooth. Can a human do so? May be but can it do it to such accuracy with an almost perfect horizontal surface with no humps at all. The answer would be probably in a No. then how is it done?
There is a magical machine out there called vibrating screed which can perfectly smoothen the surface. Screeding is a process called in the United States in which a person performs the concrete surface cutting operation to bring the surface into a single level with proper grade and smoothness. Screeding is done by the equipment named screed.
A most simple form of screed is a straight wooden plank or metal piece, which is hovered over the surface of the concrete to remove any excess concrete. In the case of vibrating concrete screed, a motor is attached to the wooden plank or metal piece, which produces vibrations for aiding in the smoothening process.
In this article, we will see what is vibrating concrete screed and how does it work, how to use it and what are its different types and how it is powered.
In the end, there will be a DIY guide on smoothening concrete using a vibrating concrete screed.
