It might be a requirement, based on the proposed use of the room, for a survey by a structural engineer to abide by building regulations on load bearing, point loadings and flex strength of the screed floor.

A skilled and qualified work force is imperative for a successful result and will extend the lifespan of your floor through the use of the correct kind of screed for your room's intended purpose. Selecting the appropriate screeding materials and the method of installation is vital if you want a durable and quality finish for your floor surface.

There are many screeding companies in and around Blackwater so see if you can get multiple quotes for your floor screeding project before picking a contractor and know to what standard of finish is it for. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the figure to watch out for when receiving a quotation from your Blackwater screeding contractor. Each of the 3 SR levels deliver different qualities of finish, with SR1 being the highest quality, with the lowest amount of deviation over the area. An SR2 or SR3 standard may mean there are ridges or flat spots that may cause problems when laying your final floor surface.

British Standards BS8204 sets down the regulations and guidelines that all Blackwater screeding companies are required to follow, and if working with specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc), they must be accredited by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. A company holding accreditation demonstrates that they've been assessed and trained in using these products and can provide a top notch service in all areas of their installation.

Blackwater commercial screeders will be involved in screeding floors in shopping centres, hospitals, schools, warehouses, factories and salons.


Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential projects where the mixture of cement and sand is perfectly acceptable for everyday floor traffic use. Five parts sand to one part cement is the typical mixture for standard screed. The standard screed dries at a rate of one millimetre thickness each day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum strength and durability in places where traffic is expected to be high or specific loading of the floor base is required.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is necessary. Polymer screeds are made by a number of screed manufacturers and because of their different chemical compositions have distinct drying times for each individual product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favourite choice of professional screeders for use in combination with underfloor heating systems. The special fibres in the screed improve it's strength and durability whilst also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is needed this mixture of cement and latex is employed to achieve SR1 quality screeding. Primarily used to improve a damaged floor or poor substrate level in order to lay a new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks on the top of it. They can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area in question ASAP a fast drying screed can be used. They're generally a fibre reinforced type of screed which can dry at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are employed in time dependent flooring projects.


To make certain that the screeding is of a high quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time should be spent on carefully preparing the area prior to any screeding material being poured. The existing floor surface should be thoroughly cleaned to eliminate any debris, oil, paint and grease which can adversely affect the adhesion of the screeding.

If cleansing products have been used it is important to remove any residues of soap or detergent, and allow the surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor all cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" through a screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the final surface. An on-site survey will enable your Blackwater screeding specialist to highlight this preparation work and finish it before beginning to lay the screeding.

Before the screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be put down to shield the screed and final flooring from dampness. Different gauges of special polythene could be used as a damp proof membrane and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.

An additional air-tight barrier might be required if your building is in a location that is regarded as susceptible to radon gas. If radon gas is present in severe doses then a complete extraction and ventilation system may be installed beneath the layer of screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from the ground.

The final step of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a sealant or primer. 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. These materials need experienced contractors to apply them in the right proportions by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

If you're installing under floor heating, now is the time that it will need to be laid out and installed. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and attached firmly to insulation panels to stop any movement in the course of the screed pouring. When expertly installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm a room and top quality screeding retains its heat, generating an even level of warmth right across the floor.

The screed can now be prepared on site and spread onto the base surface. Your screeding company will have given you advice and guidance on which screed type is appropriate for your requirements, according to your proposed use of the room. After the pouring of the screed there's at least 24 hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk on the surface, and a seventy two hour minimum setting time for the laying of any floor coverings. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds must be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with an even and stable surface.

The SR level of your screed can be checked once it has solidified sufficiently to be stepped onto. Using a 2m straight-edge the surface is examined for any dips, ridges and deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest specification and permits just 3 millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is ten millimetres or less the screed quality is specified as SR3 and is highly suitable for garage and utility areas.

If your screed floor has been installed with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer is going to be needed to conduct tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will verify the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. A drop hammer test will be conducted on several areas of the screed and the outcomes noted. Any screed flooring that has point load requirements must be approved by a certified structural engineer following the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screed Blackwater

It is best to use a latex screeding when a bit of flexibility is necessary in the surface of a floor. Latex screeds come in 2 parts - a bottle and a bag - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cement powder. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the latex liquid, which makes it quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

Used in the levelling of subfloors, this latex compound creates a suitable surface for the laying of your chosen floor finishes. This is appropriate for use on subfloors of concrete, sand/cement, stone tiles, asphalt and wood, to provide a resilient, smooth surface that's ideal for the application of flooring adhesives. Even when there is movement on your subfloor, this type of screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when screed is being laid on top of underfloor heating, depths of 50mm-75mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds aren't a suitable choice for this purpose.
