The 7 Best Screeds
This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in October of 2018. If you're in the construction industry, you know the value of a quality screed. Essentially, these long, flat tools are used to level out wet materials, like concrete, stucco, and plaster, to create a smooth and attractive finish. But do bear in mind, since most of the items on this list are made from aluminum, it is extremely important to avoid contact with sources of electricity as you work.

We've chosen screeds of short, medium, and long lengths, understanding that projects vary widely in scale. Made a point of including not only individual models but sets to suit amateurs and professionals alike. Finally, we've listed two boards that have engines, which should please those who work in the construction industry and prioritize efficiency above all else.
