Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum durability and strength on floors where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor base is required.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favourite choice of professional installers for use with under floor heating systems. This is because of the improved durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the fibres within the screed. It dries out at the same rate as a standard screed of one millimetre per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to move forward urgently with the work on account of time limitations, this screed dries much quicker than standard screeds. The majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are appropriate for a whole host of projects where the swifter drying rate of 3-7mm/day is a considerable advantage.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are required, by a latex and cement compound. Primarily used to improve a poor substrate level or damaged floor so as to lay a brand new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks on the top of it. Even with a thickness of only 1mm, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is essential. Polymer screeds are made by a number of manufacturers and owing to their different chemical compositions have specific curing times for each product.


To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish which is hard wearing and durable, time should be spent on preparing the area prior to any screed being laid. Any debris, grease, oil and paint on the existing floor level can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and should be eliminated.

If any products were used during this stage it is important to make sure that no residues of detergents, soaps or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. At this point cracks should be mended because these can easily travel up through your laid screed and be visible in the completed floor surface. A genuine Baldock screeding specialist will pick up on these aspects during a on-site survey and make certain all preparations are completed before moving on to the next stages of the floor screeding process.

Before the screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be put down to protect the final flooring and screed from moisture. There could be two or three layers of different thickness polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

Another air-tight barrier could be necessary if your home or business premises is in a location that's regarded as prone to radon gas emissions. This could be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in severe cases a ventilation system is installed beneath the screed to take away any inflow of air and gas from the ground.

As soon as the floor base has been properly prepared and any DPMs installed, a sealant or primer is then applied. A primer assists in the screed to bond successfully to the base and membranes and different types exist depending on which type of screed is being applied. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by professional screeding contractors in Baldock sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.

Under floor heating can now be installed and tested before the screed is poured. The underfloor heating system will be carefully positioned and attached firmly to insulation panels to prevent any movement during screed pouring. When professionally installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm a room and top quality screed will retain its heat, generating an even heat across the floor.

Needless to say, if you're not installing under floor heating, you can ignore this step and get on with applying the floor screed. The specific requirements of the room will determine the sort of screeding used. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before you can install any flooring materials. If you're laying heavy duty or standard screeds the drying time is increased and you must observe the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best possible finish to your floor.

You can check the SR standard of the completed screed once it is set enough to walk on. The test involves using a 2 metre long straight-edge laid on the floor surface and any variations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best specification and permits just 3 millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the screeded surface deviates from the straight edge by 5 millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 level and is the standard for commercial and industrial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is classed as SR3 and is highly suitable for utility and garage areas.

If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is required to carry out the tests. The assessment will make certain that your newly laid screed surface is viable for the load point requirements set down in the original site survey. The screed layer could be given what is known as a drop hammer test to determine flexibility and strength at various points. Only qualified structural engineers applying the British Standards BS8204 regulations are allowed to perform these testing and sign off on the structural integrity of the screeding.

Latex Screed Baldock

It is better to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a degree of flexibility is required in a floor's surface. Latex screeds typically comprise two parts - a cementitious powder and a latex liquid additive. The liquid latex part replaces the water which would normally be used for mixing floor screed, and is quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

Used for levelling-out subfloors, this latex compound creates a surface for the laying of your chosen floor finish. This screed is suitable for subfloors made of concrete, asphalt, quarry tiles, wood or sand/cement, is perfect for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a resilient, smooth surface. This type of floor screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there happens to be movement in your sub-floor.

Latex flooring screeds aren't a suitable choice where "floating" screeds are desired, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid on top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, such as could be the case when you are screeding over underfloor heating, and thicknesses of 50-65mm may be needed.
