What alternative is there to screed?
A good alternative to screed are Fermacell gypsum fiberboards. These have a high insulation and are well suited in the living area and for damp rooms. The plates are suitable for all floor coverings.

It is hardly flammable and therefore has advantages for fire protection. In addition, the panels reduce the airborne and impact sound.
If you want to do without screed, you can also use wood panels. These are attached with a battens and appropriate insulation. The underground is a concrete about 20 centimeters thick. Laminate or parquet can be optimally laid on wooden boards. The impact sound is sufficiently provided by the wood and the insulation.
Another alternative to the normal cement screed are large sheets of dry screed. They are easy to process and lay and provide a solid base for the floor covering. The panels are durable and the material is suitable for laying tiles in all working and living areas. Installing underfloor heating is also no problem here.
