Your screeding company will also notify you if a structural engineer is needed for your undertaking, to check on any load requirements, flex strength and point loadings that your screed floor might require to conform with current building regulations and British Standards.

Qualified and skilled tradespeople are necessary for a successful outcome and will extend the lifespan of your floor by making use of the right sort of screed for your room's anticipated purpose. Selecting the correct screeding materials and the method of installation is critical if you want a durable and quality finish for your floor surface.

Before selecting a screeding specialist from the many operating in the Bargoed area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quote, and also make certain you get multiple estimates. For domestic properties an estimate will generally be given for a Surface Regularity (SR) level of SR1 or SR2. Each of the three SR levels deliver different standards of finish, with SR1 being the best, with the lowest amount of deviation over the area of the floor. An SR2 or SR3 level may mean there are ridges or flat spots that may cause issues when putting down your final flooring materials.

British Standards BS8204 lays down the regulations and guidelines that all Bargoed screeding installers must follow, and if working with specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc), they should be accredited by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. This accreditation program illustrates a firm's training and ability in the usage of a manufacturer's merchandise.

For the screeding of floors in warehouses, schools, hospitals, restaurants, factories and shops, dedicated commercial screeders in Bargoed will be needed.


Standard Screeds - A blend of sand and cement which is okay for basic residential use. This mixture uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. After laying a standard screed dries out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this compound of cement and latex is used to achieve SR1 level screeding. It's mainly used to produce a clean, smooth floor over the top of a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a finish onto which all types of flooring materials can be laid. These can be as little as 1mm thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with under floor heating systems and is the advised choice in these projects. The fibres in this screed mix increase it's durability and strength while also safeguarding against thermal cracking and shrinkage. At roughly one millimetre per day, it has an identical drying rate to standard floor screed.

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

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries at a quicker rate and allows you to use the floor area much faster. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, determined by the mix, they are normally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are perfect for flooring projects that have tight deadlines.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is necessary due to construction requirements, a polymer screed offers a high strength resolution to the situation. Because of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying setting times which you can verify by studying manufacturer's own product guidelines.


To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that is durable and hard wearing, time should be spent on carefully preparing the area before any screeding material is laid. It's important that all contaminants such as grease, paint, oil or debris is eliminated from the floor surface before pouring any screed, because these can affect the bonding capability that a quality floor screed requires.

If cleaning products have been used it is essential to remove any remnants of soap etc, and allow the surface to dry naturally. At this point cracks should be mended because these can easily travel up through the laid screed and be reflected in the completed floor surface. A site survey will allow your Bargoed screeding specialist to take note of this preparation work and tackle it before commencing to lay the screeding.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be laid. There may be 2 or 3 layers of varying thickness polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon gas then one additional barrier is necessary to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. A simple airtight membrane may be enough in locations with low levels of radon, however in more severe situations there may need to be a more complicated extraction and ventilation system to remove any ground penetrating radon gases.

As soon as the floor base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then put on. A primer helps with the screed bonding process to the base surface and different types exist based upon which kind of screed is being used. Because of their special nature, only qualified screeding specialists in Bargoed are capable of using them safely and correctly and using equipment that is made for the task.

If you are going to be installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be properly set out and installed. Insulation panels can be put in position and the heating pipes and wires will be firmly attached so that there is no movement whilst the screed is poured. When expertly installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm a room and top quality screed will retain its heat, generating an even level of warmth across the floor surface.

Obviously, if you are not fitting underfloor heating, you can just skip this stage and get on with applying the screed. Your proposed use of the room will assist your screeding contractor on what kind of screed is appropriate for your requirements. Be aware that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk on any laid surfaces and a minimum 3 days before any flooring can be fitted. This time period is longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's product guidelines must be followed to the letter to create the optimum finish and durability of the floor.

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

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest level and allows only three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish is not required. This classification allows for a maximium deviation of 10mm.

There might also be a requirement for a structural engineer to do a soundness test. This test will determine the overall strength of the screed and its viability for the proposed use. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" will be performed at various areas on the screed layer and the results documented. Only certified structural engineers following the British Standards BS8204 regulations are allowed to conduct such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.

Latex Screeds Bargoed

When a certain amount of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface you may find that the use of a latex self-levelling floor screed will be an advantage. Latex screeds usually comprise 2 parts - a cementitious powder and a liquid latex component. The liquid latex part replaces the water that would typically be used for mixing floor screed, and is quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

Used for levelling subfloors, this latex product provides a surface for the laying of your chosen floor finishes. Providing a durable, smooth surface which is perfect for the application of adhesives, this is is suitable for use on sub-floors of quarry tiles, asphalt, wood, sand/cement and concrete. This type of floor screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there is movement in your subfloor.

With a "floating" screed, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid on top of a membrane of acoustic or thermal insulation, latex flooring screeds won't be suitable. Floating screeds with a depth of 50mm-65mm are normally used over underfloor heating.
