The natural nature of lava rock creates a warm, rich look and a unique texture that adds a special dimension to any room. Ideal for anyone who wants to bring a touch of nature into their home without sacrificing comfort and practical benefits.

  • Durable and lifetime use: Made from natural materials, these floors are not only durable but also designed for lifelong use.

Are there any lava rock screed disadvantages?

Despite the many benefits, there are some considerations to make when choosing a lava rock cast floor:

  • Initial cost: The purchase and installation of lava rock cast flooring can be higher than traditional flooring options due to the use of natural materials and the specific installation process.
  • Sensitivity to extreme impact: Although they are extremely abrasion- and scratch-resistant, lava rock screeds can be damaged upon extremely hard impact.
  • Installation time: The process of laying a lava stone cast floor can be time-consuming, given the preparation and time required for curing the floor.
  • Limitations in adjustments: Once installed, it is not easy to make changes to the color or texture of the floor.

While these drawbacks should be factored in, it is important to emphasize that the durability, uniqueness and longevity of a lava stone cast floor often outweigh these initial considerations.

What is the cost of a lava stone cast floor?

The cost of a lava stone cast floor depends on several factors, including the size of the room, the condition of the subfloor, and any specific design requirements. On average, prices for a lava stone cast floor are higher than for traditional cast floors, given the unique properties and durable materials used.

As a guideline, you can assume the following:

  • For an area of up to 50 square meters, the cost averages between €100 and €150 per square meter.
  • For larger areas, the cost per square meter may decrease, thanks to economies of scale.

How does installing a lava stone cast floor work?

Installing a lava stone cast floor is a careful process that consists of several steps to ensure the quality and durability of the floor. Here is an overview of the process:

  1. Subfloor preparation: The subfloor must be clean, dry and level. Any unevenness is removed or smoothed out.
  2. Applying primer: A special primer is applied to optimize the adhesion between the subfloor and the lava rock screed.
  3. Mixing of the material: The lava rock and binder are carefully mixed into a homogeneous mass.
  4. Application of the screed: The mixture is evenly distributed and smoothed over the floor.
  5. Drying and curing: The floor must now dry. Depending on the thickness and environmental conditions, this may take several days.
  6. Finishing: After curing, the floor can be finished with a protective coating to increase durability and ease of maintenance.

This careful process ensures that your lava stone screed not only looks beautiful, but also withstands daily use and has a long life.
