How long should I wait before installing a Balterio laminate floor on screed or fresh concrete?

The screed must have dried out completely before installing the Balterio laminate floor on top of it. The drying time will depend on the thickness of the screed.

As a general rule for drying times with ventilation, we allow one week per cm to a depth of 4 cm and two weeks per cm for a depth of 4 cm or more. For example: for 6 cm of screed, the total drying time is (4 cm x 1 week) + (2 cm x 2 weeks) = 8 weeks.

A moisture measurement is essential to ensure that the screed has dried out completely. The values can be found in the installation instructions.
