  • Good for areas of light use

    Pros:  quick and easy to use
    Cons:  i would not recommend it in areas on heavy use.

    "I bought this to lay paving slabs as a base for a greenhouse and shed. For that it is absolutely fine. However I would not use it in areas of heavy use e.g. on a driveway as it is quite easy to get the slabs back up and I would imagine that with something like cars on it there would be a problem. It is easy and quick to use."

  • Useful ready mix

    Pros:  easy to level the dry mix
    Cons:  needs more mixing than the guide as i don't like, to leave dry powder.

    "I used this for laying red 12mm thick X 150mm square quarry tiles. It worked well once I had developed my technique. I added waterproof PVA to the gauging water. Around 1pt to 6 parts, and also painted each tile base with a stronger 1pt to 2pt mix of PVA as I laid each tile. I levelled a thin dry layer (10mm) on a watered hardcore base then watered it and chopped criss cross lines in it to make sure it was mixed, watered and repeated this process till I was at the correct thickness to take the tile. This varied between 30mm and 60mm of mixed product to join the different existing levels of steps and paths I needed to connect. Mixing this way still took away a lot of work, though for a large area ready mixed screed would be faster. Great for smaller areas. This job was 7sq meters."

  • OK but Expensive

    Pros:  convenient
    Cons:  still needed to be mixed first!

    "This product did what was required but I felt that low mix of cement with sand would have achieved the same results at a much cheaper cost."

    "Excellent for small areas but after laying the first area I mixed the product & water by trowel before laying slabs rather than sprinkling water over powder."
