Cast floor: frequently asked questions
How does the cast floor / underfloor heating combination work?
The combination screed floor / underfloor heating is ideal, because it can be installed in one go, in both hard and soft floors. This makes it much cheaper than when the underfloor heating has to be installed afterwards. The cast floor also ensures very good conductivity, so that the heat can be felt well and there is no need to burn.
Installing the cast floor: Do it yourself or not?
For a perfect end result, it is very important that the floors that are used – including the subfloor – are completely smooth. Also, each layer of the cast floor must always be finished tightly, so that this again forms a good basis for the new layer. Always work very carefully and accurately; removing a cast floor is not very easy!
Are there any disadvantages to the Mesa Fast cast floor?
The fact that they are in one piece can also be seen as one of the drawbacks, especially if you want to do this yourself. It means that you have to work very precisely and that it is important to always complete the cast floor per layer. Certainly with larger surfaces this can mean that installing the ideal cast floor is not so easy. Getting help is often better.

What exactly is an epoxy cast floor?
When people talk about an epoxy cast floor, it is often about something other than this actual floor. That’s the way it is: epoxy is used for finishing various types of floors. This synthetic resin type often serves as an extra
hard top layer. Several types of floors therefore have an epoxy coating. However, you cannot call these floors epoxy cast floors. A real epoxy cast floor does not only have a top layer of resin, but consists entirely of epoxy. This makes this cast floor the strongest floor you can have: twice as strong as concrete. In addition, it is dirt and water resistant and very formable, making the floor ideal for all kinds of projects, including renovation projects.
The Mesa Fast screed floor not only has a top layer of resin, but consists of several epoxy layers.

What do I have to take into account?
Those who choose a cast floor must take into account some specific properties. These are not necessarily disadvantages, but things that must be taken into consideration and that can determine the choice of the right floor.
Less suitable for shops and showrooms
shop or a showroom), it is better to choose another floor, such as a trowel floor. That floor is also sturdy, but offers slightly more options in terms of color and finish. You may wonder whether you really need the strongest, functional cast floor in a store or showroom, or whether you are also well equipped with a strong floor that can also add a few things visually.
Cast floor can start working
A cast floor can, because it adheres to the subfloor, start to “work” and therefore show some cracks or unevenness in the visible underlay. This does not affect the quality or sturdiness of the floor, but visually may be less desirable in places where appearance matters.
The epoxy resin can discolour under the influence of sunlight. This can be something to take into account when the screed is laid in a room with a lot of sunlight. In other rooms you do not have to take this into account and even when the appearance of the floor is not a priority, this is something you do not have to pay attention to.
Professionals with experience
The Mesa Fast cast floor is not a floor that you can lay yourself. This is a floor to be installed by professionals with experience. After all, there is a lot involved when laying cast floors. The surface on which this cast floor will lie must be properly treated. The subfloor must have the correct structure and roughness for the cast floor to adhere properly. The cast floor is not elastic and adheres to the subfloor. This allows the floor to start working. If the cast floor is not properly installed, this can cause problems. So always have your cast floor installed by an expert. We can of course take care of this.
A cast floor is not cheap, especially when you compare it with floors that only have a thin coating. A cast floor like this is a valuable investment, because it will definitely pay for itself due to its strength and low maintenance. If you let a floor like this be laid, it will in principle lie for life. Are you sure that this floor will be used very intensively, then it is a sublime choice. However, do you have any doubts and do you think these cast floor is perhaps too heavy for your specific use, then it can certainly be worthwhile to look at another type of floor. We offer you many different options.
Colors and finishes
An epoxy cast floor is not a floor for decoration, but a floor for places where people really work. Therefore, the possibilities for colors and finishes are somewhat limited. Often color and finish with a cast floor are not decisive, or they are not relevant at all. However, the color of the floor is influenced by the subfloor. That way you can still influence it. You also have some options in the finish, from fairly matte to high-gloss.
