The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to look for when receiving a quote from your Billing screeding contractor. Each of the 3 SR levels offer different levels 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 could cause issues when putting down your final flooring materials.

The guidelines and regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by any Billing floor screeding contractor and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc.) to verify their competence and safe working practices. The training and assessment of a screeding contractor by a manufacturer is emphasised through this accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any flooring project involving their materials.

For the screeding of floors in shops, boutiques, warehouses, factories, hospitals and schools, skilled commercial screeders in Billing will be required.


Standard Screeds - Used in domestic flooring projects where the mixture of sand and cement is okay for standard footfall use. This mix comprises a five to one ratio of sand to cement. After being laid a standard screed dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

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

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to use the area in question as quickly as possible a fast drying screed can be employed. Drying at a rate of three to seven millimetres, determined by the mix, they are normally a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are ideal for projects that have tight schedules.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement solution. It's largely used to provide a smooth, clean floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a surface finish onto which all sorts of flooring materials can be laid. The liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of just one millimetre, but will still provide a strong surface for a wide range of flooring finishes.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use over the top of under floor heating. The increased strength and flex provided by the special fibres within the screed help protect the resulting floor from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. At roughly 1mm per day, it has the same drying rate to standard screed.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed on account of building requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to the situation. Because of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying setting times which can be verified by reading manufacturer's own product guidelines.


Screeding companies will need to fully prepare all areas before proceeding with any other work so as to guarantee a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. Any grease, debris, paint and oil on the existing floor surface can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be removed.

Any cleaning chemicals which are used during this phase shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry out naturally. At this stage cracks should be mended as these can easily travel up through a newly laid screed and be reflected in the completed surface. A genuine Billing screeding company will take note of these issues during the on-site survey and make certain all preparations are finished before moving on to the next stages of the screeding process.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed after the preparation work has been done to stop ground dampness getting into the screeding and floor materials. There could be 2 or 3 layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

If your house is situated in a place where radon gas is found an additional barrier layer is required to prevent radon gas from getting through. This can be just a simple airtight membrane, or in more serious instances a ventilation system will be installed underneath the floor screed to extract any inflow of radon gas from ground level.

The final step of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a sealant or primer. A primer assists in the screed to bond to the base surface and different types exist depending on which kind of screed is being used. Equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, by certified screeding companies in Billing following the manufacturer's guidelines.

Now is the time that under floor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. The underfloor heating system will be carefully positioned and mounted firmly on insulation panels to avoid any movement in the course of the screed pouring. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in an expertly installed under floor heating system, and with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's an excellent choice for most Billing home restoration projects.

If you're not putting in underfloor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and laid. Your screeding contractor will have given you guidance and advice on which screed type is appropriate for your requirements, according to your proposed use of the room area. Don't forget that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk on any laid surface and a minimum 72 hours before any flooring can be laid. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds must be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and long lasting surface.

The SR standard of your screeding can be verified once it has solidified enough to be stepped onto. Using a two metre straight-edge the surface is examined for any deviations, ridges and dips in the surface of the screed.

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

If you need load bearing checks, a structural engineer is necessary to perform the tests. Using specialised equipment the engineer will ascertain the screeded surface strength and viability of use in a load bearing environment. A drop hammer test will be performed on various areas of the screed layer and the outcomes noted. The precise measurement and testing tools required mean this can only be conducted by a certified structural engineer observing the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Screed Billing

It is best to use a latex floor screed when a certain degree of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor. Latex floor screed comes in 2 parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cement based compound, and the bottle containing a liquid latex mixture. The liquid latex additive actually replaces the water that would typically be used for mixing floor screed, and is far more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed.

This latex compound is used for levelling sub-floors prior to the installation of your chosen decorative surface. This screeding is appropriate for use on sub-floors of wood, concrete, asphalt, sand/cement and stone tiles, to provide a resilient and smooth surface that is perfect for the application of adhesives. If your sub-floor has a bit of movement in it, this type of latex screeding will produce a flexible, crack-free finish, onto which your final floor coverings can be laid.

With a "floating" screed, for instance when a screed is being laid on top of a layer of acoustic or thermal insulation, latex flooring screeds won't be appropriate. Floating screeds with a thickness of 50mm-65mm are normally used on top of underfloor heating.
