Civil construction is a very competitive industry, and it is continuously searching for viable alternatives and good results that can be applied in a short-term period of time. This work was carried out based on a case study, in a construction site that executed the conventional screed method in multi-family buildings located in the city of Campina Grande - PB. The objective of this work was to analyze and compare the conventional and self-leveling screed method, highlighting the advantages and disadvantages, as well as the economic feasibility for this case. Through observation and recording of data performed in real time during the execution of the it was possible to catalog and prepare documents for the development of the analysis. It was noticed that the self-leveling screed, when compared to the conventional is an alternative with very satisfactory results, both regarding the time of execution and its economic viability.
