Standard Screeds - A mixture of sand and cement which is ideal for regular residential usage. The ratios involved in standard screeds are five parts sand to one part cement. After being laid a standard screed sets at a rate of 1mm/day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option where underfloor heating is being installed in residential homes in Alcester. The fibres in the screed increase overall strength and durability while also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It has a drying rate of one millimetre per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry rapidly and allow you to use the screeded area much faster. The vast majority of the fast drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are ideal for a wide array of flooring projects where the faster curing rate of three to seven millimetres is advantageous.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is required this blend of latex and cement is used to produce SR1 quality floor screeding. Largely used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level so as to lay a new flooring surface, like vinyl planks over the top of it. Even with a depth of only one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Screeding Quotes Alcester Warwickshire

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds provide maximum durability and strength.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is needed. The drying times vary according to proprietary product guidelines.


To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish that is durable and hard wearing, time should be spent on preparing the area prior to any screed being poured. The existing floor surface should be cleaned to eliminate any debris, oil, paint and grease that might affect the bond of the screed.

If cleansing products were used it is vital to remove any remnants of detergent or soap, and allow the surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor then all cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and causing deviations on the finished surface. During an on-site survey the screeding specialist will ascertain what preparation work is needed before starting to work on screeding the floor.

Before any screeding can be poured a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed to protect the final flooring and screed from moisture. There could be 2 or 3 layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.

A further airtight barrier might be necessary if your building is in a location which is known to be susceptible to radon gas. This can be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in more serious cases a ventilation and extraction system will need to be installed under the screed to draw out any influx of radon gas from the ground.

The final phase of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a sealant or primer. A primer assists in the screed to bond to the base and membranes and different varieties exist based on which kind of screed is being applied. These substances require certified contractors to apply them in the right ratios by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.

If you are installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be set out and installed. The heating pipes and wires are firmly attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement and ensure that they're held in the correct position. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in a professionally fitted underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's an excellent choice for most Alcester renovation projects.

Of course, if you're not installing underfloor heating, you can bypass this step and apply the floor screed. Your screeding contractor will have given you advice and guidance on which screed type is suitable for your requirements, in line with your intended use of the room. Bear in mind that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk on any laid surfaces and at least seventy two hours before any floor coverings can be fitted. If you are using standard or heavy duty screeds the curing time is longer and you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best finish for your floor.

Once the screeding has solidified it can be checked for quality to verify the SR level. Using a 2 mtr straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any ridges, dips and deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest standard and allows just 3mm of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to five millimetres.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is comparatively inconsequential SR3 is the specification and should have a maximum deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If your screed has been laid with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be needed to carry out the assessment. The testing will make sure that your newly laid screed surface is suitable for the load point requirements specified in the site survey. This will include what is known as a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. Only qualified structural engineers respecting the BS8204 guidelines are permitted to perform these tests and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.

Latex Screeds Alcester

When a degree of flexibility is necessary in the surface of a floor you might find that the application of a latex self-levelling screed will be best. Latex floor screeds typically comprise 2 parts - a cementitious powder and a liquid latex component. The latex liquid solution replaces the water which would normally be used in a screed mix, and is quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

Before the laying of the final decorative covering, this latex compound is used for levelling subfloors. Giving a durable and smooth surface which is perfect for the application of flooring adhesives, this screeding is is suitable for use on substrate of sand/cement, asphalt, quarry tiles, wood and concrete. If there's a bit of movement in the sub-floor this type of latex screeding will provide a crack-free, flexible finish on which you can lay your final floor coverings.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screeding is being laid on top of underfloor heating, thicknesses of 50mm-65mm may be necessary, and latex screeds aren't suitable in this case.
