Standard Screeds - Used in domestic flooring projects where the mixture of cement and sand is ideal for standard footfall usage. This mixture uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness each day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum strength and durability in places where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor base is necessary.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with under floor heating systems and is the favoured choice in these projects. The special fibres in this screed increase it's durability and strength while also protecting against thermal cracking and shrinkage. The screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is required this mix of of cement and latex is employed to produce SR1 quality screeding. Largely used to finalise a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like vinyl planks over it. Even with a depth of 1mm, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries at a quicker rate and allows you to use the screeded area much faster. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are ideal for a whole host of projects where the speedier drying rate of three to seven millimetres is a big advantage.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is necessary. Maker's guidelines for setting times are different across the product ranges.

Screeding Quotes Axbridge Somerset


Screeding installers will need to prepare all areas prior to any other work in order to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. It's important that any contaminants such as grease, debris, paint or oil is removed from the floor before laying any screed, since these can affect the adhesion process that a good quality floor screed requires.

Screeding Near Axbridge (BS26)

If any cleaning products were used during this stage it's vital to make sure that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the surface and it is allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor any cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" through your screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the finished floor surface. During a site survey the screeding contractor will notice what preparation work is necessary before starting to work on the actual screeding.

Before the screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture damage. The DPM is made of thick polythene and different layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If your house is located in a place where radon gas is present an extra barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from seeping through. A simple air-tight membrane might be enough in places with relatively low radon measurements, however in more serious cases there might have to be a more sophisticated extraction system to block any ground penetrating radon gas.

The final phase of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a sealer or primer. Primers and sealers help with the bonding process and are special applications according to the type of screed that is being used. Equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, by qualified screeding companies in Axbridge sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Before the screeding can be poured, any underfloor heating (if required) will now be laid out. Insulation panels will be laid out and the cabling and heating pipes will be securely fastened to prevent any movement whilst the screed is poured. Warmth is spread evenly across a floor area in a professionally installed underfloor heating system, and along with it being an efficient method of heating, it is an ideal choice for many Axbridge home renovation projects.

Needless to say, if you aren't installing underfloor heating, you can bypass this stage and apply the screeding. Your screeding company will give you advice on which screed type is suitable for your requirements, in line with your proposed use of the room area. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it can be walked over, and a further 72 hours minimum before you are able to lay any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for heavy duty and standard screeds should be followed in order to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and even floor surface.

As soon as the screeding has solidified it can be quality checked to confirm the SR standard. The standard SR test uses a two metre straight edge to check for any variations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3mm or less being measured across the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the highest quality and categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole screeded surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect finish isn't required. This level allows for a maximium deviation of 10 millimetres.

There might also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. The testing will ensure your new screeding is suitable for the load point requirements laid out in the original site survey. An assessment called the drop hammer test will be conducted on different areas of the screed and the outcomes documented. Only experienced structural engineers heeding the British Standards BS8204 regulations are permitted to perform these testing and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.

Granolithic Screeding Axbridge

Granolithic screeding is a process of creating a smooth and even surface for floor coverings like carpets or tiles. It involves mixing cement, sand and aggregate to form a mixture, which is then applied to a concrete sub-base. The mixture is levelled with a straightedge to give it a smooth, seamless surface.

The resulting flooring is hard-wearing, slip-resistant and easy to clean, making it ideal for use in areas with high foot traffic, such as factories, shopping centres and schools.
