    Evening chaps,

    Laid out sand and cement screed yesterday.
    I know I need to leave it a fair amount of time to cure, but believe I can get on it to build the kitchen etc.

    What’s a good product to put on the screed to protect it while it’s curing?

    I though about the plastic floor protection sheets, but we need to let the moisture escape, right?

    Thanks

    Once it’s gone off enough to take your weight, do you need to cover it?
    I never have, maybe I should have! (What’s the point though?)

    To protect the rest of the house from walking the dust through, stop the dog digging at it etc

    Ah ok. That cardboard temporary flooring cover might do the trick then. Comes in big rolls. Surprisingly hard wearing too, had some down at my place with dogs and kids for a few months.
