Answer: a few weeks of drying are necessary (one week per centimeter of screed).

The drying time of a cement screed can vary depending on the thickness of the screed, but also depending on the geographic area and the time of year: sunshine, heat, etc. This waiting time allows the humidity present in the screed to evaporate little by little. If you lay your tiles too early, you will have difficulty sticking them, there will certainly be adhesion problems. Generally, a few weeks of drying are necessary before being able to stick tiling on a screed of mortar. In the construction sector, there is a short week of drying on average for each centimeter of screed. If the screed is 5 cm for example, wait at least a month.
