Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to move forward urgently with the work because of time limitations, these screeds dry more speedily than standard flooring screeds. The majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are perfect for a wide array of projects where the swifter curing rate of 3-7mm/day is a considerable advantage.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement material which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. It is primarily used to provide a clean, smooth floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. Even with a depth of only one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is needed. Owing to their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying drying times which you can verify by checking manufacturer's own product guidelines.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum durability and strength in areas where traffic is expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is needed.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use over the top of underfloor heating. This is due to the increased strength and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the special fibres within the screed mix. It has a drying rate of 1mm per day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

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 screed being poured. Any oil, debris, grease and paint on the existing floor surface can affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be removed.

Any cleaning chemicals which are used during this stage shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and producing deviations on the final floor surface. A site survey will enable the screeding company to highlight these preparation areas and complete them before commencing to apply the screed layer.

Before the screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed to shield the screed and final flooring from dampness. The damp proof membrane is made from thick polythene and various layers might be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screeding.

If your house is situated in a place where radon is present an additional barrier layer is needed to prevent radon gas from entering. An air-tight membrane may be suitable in places with relatively low emissions of radon, however in more extreme situations there might have to be a more complex extraction and ventilation system to remove any harmful radon.

Once these steps have been taken the screeders will put on a sealer or primer to the prepared base surface. These primers and sealers will make sure the screed bonds properly to the base and help to create a high quality finished floor. These substances need qualified technicians to apply them in the correct ratios by using airless sprays and other custom-made equipment.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and tested before the screed is poured. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and firmly secured to insulation panels to prevent potential movement during screed application. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should provide even warmth in all areas of the floor.

Obviously, if you're not installing underfloor heating, you simply skip this stage and apply the screed. Your screeding company will have given you advice on which screed type is appropriate for your requirements, in line with your intended use of the room area. After application of the screed there will be at least 24 hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you are able to walk on the surface, and a 72 hrs minimum curing time for any floor covering installation. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds must be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even surface.

The SR standard of your screed can be checked once it has set enough to be walked on. The standard SR test uses a 2m long straight-edge to check for any variations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best quality and allows only three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to five millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10mm or less the screeding quality is categorised as SR3 and is the standard required for garage and utility areas.

If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to conduct the testing. This assessment will establish the strength of the screed and its suitability for the proposed use. An assessment called the drop hammer test is conducted on several areas of the screed layer and the results noted. Only qualified structural engineers applying the BS8204 guidelines are permitted to perform such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of the screeding.

Latex Screed Aughton

It is better to use a latex self-levelling screed when a level of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface. Latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cement based compound, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex additive. The latex liquid additive takes the place of the water that is used in normal screeds, making it quicker drying and more flexible.

Used for levelling subfloors, this latex compound creates a suitable surface for the laying of your chosen floor finishes. Suitable for sub-floors of wood, asphalt, stone tiles, sand/cement and concrete, this screeding gives a perfect surface for the application of adhesives which is also resilient and smooth. If there is any movement in the subfloor this latex screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish on which to lay your chosen floor coverings.

Latex floor screeds are not suitable where "floating" screeds are desired, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid over a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, such as may be the case when you are screeding over underfloor heating, and thicknesses of 50 to 75 millimetres may be needed.
