"Screed" as a Masonry Term

By

Definition: In masonry terminology, a screed is a straight board used to even off the surface of sand or freshly poured concrete. The screed is usually slid across the tops of the form boards holding the sand or concrete. In this process, sand or concrete remaining above the level of the forms is moved to areas in which the sand or concrete level is too low, or else simply removed as excess.
