Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential projects where the combination of sand and cement is okay for everyday footfall use. The ratios involved are five parts sand to one part cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness each day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional screeders for use with under floor heating systems. The improved flex and strength provided by the special fibres within the screed help protect the floor from thermal cracking and shrinkage. It has a setting rate of one millimetre per day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are needed, by a cement and latex material.

Even with a depth of only 1mm, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to progress urgently with the work because of time constraints, these screeds dry much quicker than standard flooring screeds.

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


To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time should be devoted to fully preparing the area prior to any screeding material being laid. Any paint, oil, debris and grease on the original floor level can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eliminated.

Any cleansing chemicals used during this process shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry out naturally. It is vital to repair any cracks in the floor surface to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" upwards into the newly screeded floor. A site survey will allow the screeding installer to identify this preparation work and complete it before commencing to pour the screeding layer.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be applied after the preparation work has been finished to stop ground dampness getting into the flooring materials and screed. There may be 2 or 3 layers of varying thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

A supplementary air-tight barrier might be necessary if your building is in a location that's known to be susceptible to radon gas emissions. A simple air-tight membrane might be suitable in locations with relatively low radon measurements, but in more severe cases there may have to be a more sophisticated extraction and ventilation system to take away any ground penetrating radon gases.

Once these steps have been taken the screeders will put on a sealant or primer to the prepared base surface. Sealers and primers assist with the bonding process and are special applications specifically designed for the kind of screed that's being used. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a primer or sealant, by certified screeding companies in Ashington following the manufacturer's guidelines.

This is the time that underfloor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and firmly mounted on insulation panels to avoid potential movement during screed application. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system should provide even level of warmth in all areas of the floor.

The screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and spread onto the floor base. Your screeding contractor will give you advice and guidance on which sort of screed is best for your needs, according to your intended use of the room area. Don't forget that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk on any laid surfaces and at least 72 hours before any floor coverings can be fitted. If you are aiming to end up with a well finished and durable floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where this waiting period will be increased.

The SR standard of your screed can be checked once it's solidified enough to be walked on. Through the use of a 2 metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any deviations, ridges and dips in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3mm or less as measured over the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to five millimetres.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish isn't required. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation of 10mm.

It may also be necessary for a structural engineer to perform a soundness test. The testing will make sure that your newly laid screeding is viable for the load point requirements specified in the site survey. A drop hammer test is conducted on various areas of the screed layer and the results documented. Any screeding that's got load bearing requirements must be approved by a fully qualified structural engineer following the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.
