British Standards BS8204 lays down the regulations and guidelines that all Bishops Stortford screeding companies are required to follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc), they must be accredited by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. This accreditation program illustrates a company's high quality performance and training in the usage of a manufacturer's product.

Commercial screeders in Bishops Stortford will probably undertake larger floor screeding projects in hospitals, warehouses, shops, hotels, factories and schools.


Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic flooring projects where the blend of sand and cement is ideal for regular floor traffic use. Five parts sand to one part cement is the typical mixture for standard screeds. The standard screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness each day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional screeders for use in combination with under floor heating systems. The fibres in the screed mix increase it's durability and strength while also safeguarding against thermal cracking and shrinkage. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement formula which can achieve the highest standard SR1 finish. Primarily used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level so as to lay a new flooring surface, such as tiling on the top of it. The liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of just 1mm, but still provides a high strength base for a selection of flooring finishes.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to progress urgently with the flooring because of time restraints, these screeds dry much quicker than standard screeds. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are ideal for a wide array of flooring projects where the swifter drying rate of 3-7mm/day is advantageous.

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

Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a lower thickness. On account of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying setting times which you can verify by reading manufacturer's own product guidelines.

Preparation is crucial for a quality finished screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. Any grease, oil, debris and paint on the original floor level can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and should be eliminated.

Screeding Near Bishops Stortford (CM23)

If any products were used in this process it is crucial to make certain that no residues of soaps or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and producing imperfections on the finished floor surface. An on-site survey will allow your Bishops Stortford screeding company to identify these preparation areas and complete them before beginning to lay the screeding.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed to protect the screed and final flooring from dampness. Different gauges of specialised polythene may be used as a DPM and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.

An additional airtight barrier might be necessary if your house is in an area that's known to be prone to radon. If radon is present in large amounts then a full ventilation and extraction system might be needed underneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that might seep in from the ground.

As soon as the floor base has been properly prepared and any DPMs installed, a sealer or primer is then put on. Sealers and primers assist with the bonding process and are special applications specifically designed for the type of screed being applied. These products require trained contractors to apply them in the right ratios by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.

If you're installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be correctly set out and installed. Insulation panels will be positioned and the cables and heating pipes will be firmly fastened so that there is no movement while the screed is being poured. When professionally installed an underfloor heating system is an excellent way to warm a room and good quality screeding will retain its heat, creating an even level of warmth right across the floor surface.

If you aren't installing under floor heating the screed can now be prepared on site and laid. Your use of the room will help your screeding contractor on what type of screed is right for your requirements. After the pouring of the screed there'll be a minimum 24 hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you are able to walk upon the surface, and a 72 hrs minimum drying period before the laying of any floor coverings. Such timescales will be increased for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's guidelines must be followed to the letter to accomplish the best finish and durability of the floor.

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

  • SR1 - Over the whole screed area, if there are no deviations greater than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to five millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is ten millimetres or less the screeding quality is categorised as SR3 and is suitable for garage and utility areas.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is needed to conduct the testing. The assessment will make certain that your new screeded surface is suitable for the load point requirements laid out in the original site survey. The screeding should be subjected to what's known as a "drop hammer test" to determine flexibility and strength in distinct areas. Only fully qualified structural engineers following the BS8204 regulations are permitted to carry out such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of the screeding.

Latex Floor Screeds Bishops Stortford

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a level of flexibility is necessary, it may be best to apply a latex floor screed, rather than one with an unyielding finish. Normally coming in two parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cementitious powder and a latex liquid additive. The liquid latex additive replaces the water that would typically be used in a screed mix, and is much more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed.

Prior to the installation of the final decorative covering, this latex compound is used for levelling subfloors. This is appropriate for use on substrate of concrete, quarry tiles, asphalt, wood and sand/cement, to provide a smooth, resilient surface that's ideal for the application of flooring adhesives. If there's any movement in the subfloor this type of latex floor screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish on which you can lay your final floor coverings.

With a "floating" screed, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of either thermal or acoustic insulation, latex screeds will not be appropriate. Floating screeds with a depth of 50-75mm are often used on top of underfloor heating.
