It may be a requirement, according to the intended use of the space, for a structural engineering survey to conform with building regulations on point loadings, load requirements and flex strength of the screed floor.

A skilled and qualified work force is essential to a successful result and will extend your floor's lifespan through the use of the right kind of screed for the proposed purpose of your room. Choosing the correct screeding materials and the best installation technique is crucial if you want to end up with a quality and durable finish for your floor.

Make sure that you get 2 or 3 price quotes for your Blaydon based screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting each quote. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to look for when getting a quote from Blaydon floor screeding companies. Each of the 3 SR levels offer different qualities of finish, with SR1 offering the best, with the least amount of deviation over the area. This means you might have to correct any areas that may cause problems when putting down your finished flooring material.

British Standards BS8204 sets down the guidelines and regulations that all Blaydon screeding contractors must follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc), they should be certified by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. A company holding accreditation shows they have been assessed and trained in using these screeding products and can deliver a high quality service in all aspects of their installation.

Blaydon commercial screeders may be involved in screeding floors in warehouses, schools, shops, factories, restaurants and hospitals.


Standard Screeds - This is acceptable for everyday residential use and is a combination of cement and sand. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the typical mix for standard flooring screeds. The standard flooring screed will dry at a rate of one millimetre thickness per day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with under floor heating and is the suggested option in these projects. This is because of the increased durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the fibres within the screed mix. At about 1mm per day, it has the same curing rate to standard floor screed.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement mixture which can achieve the highest standard SR1 finish. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all sorts of flooring materials to be laid. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that's designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where the maximum possible durability and strength is vital.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to use the area in question at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed may be used. Most of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are suitable for a whole host of projects where the faster curing rate of three to seven millimetres is a big advantage.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed due to construction requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to the problem. Maker's guidelines for setting times vary across the product ranges.

Screeding installers will need to prepare all areas before proceeding with any other work in order to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any oil, debris, grease and paint on the original floor level can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be eliminated.

Screeding Near Blaydon (NE21)

If cleaning products have been used it is vital to remove any remnants of soap, detergent etc, and allow the surface to dry naturally. At this stage cracks should be mended as these can easily travel up through the laid screed and be visible in the finished surface. A competent Blaydon screeding contractor will pick up on such problems during the site survey and ensure that all preparations are completed before applying the next steps in the floor screeding process.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be put down after the preparation work has been concluded to prevent ground moisture affecting the flooring materials and screeding. The damp proof membrane is made out of thick polythene sheeting and various layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If your property is situated in an area where radon gas is found a supplementary barrier layer is needed to stop radon gas from seeping through. If radon is present in severe doses then a full ventilation and extraction system might be needed under the layer of screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from ground level.

Once these stages have been completed the screeding company will apply a sealer or primer to the prepared base surface. A primer assists in the screed bonding correctly to the base and different varieties exist depending on which kind of screed is being applied. These materials require professional technicians to apply them in the correct proportions by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Before the screeding can be laid, any underfloor heating will now be installed. Insulation panels will be arranged and the wires and heating pipes will be firmly attached to prevent any movement whilst the screed is being applied. When professionally installed an under floor heating system is an efficient way to warm up a room and high quality screeding will retain its heat, producing an even heat across the floor surface.

Needless to say, if you are not fitting underfloor heating, you can just ignore this stage and get on with applying the screeding. Your screeding company will give you advice and guidance on which type of screed is appropriate for your needs, in line with your intended use of the room. After the pouring of the screed there is a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk over the surface, and a 72 hour minimum setting period before the laying of any floor coverings. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds should be followed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even floor surface.

Once the screed has hardened it can be quality checked to determine the SR level. Using a two metre straight-edge the surface is examined for any deviations, ridges and dips in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Deviations of three millimetres or less being measured over the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the finest quality and classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the whole screeded floor.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a quality finish is not required. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation of 10mm.

If your screeding has been laid with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be needed to perform the assessment. The testing will ensure your newly laid screed is suitable for the load point requirements specified in the site survey. The screeding will be given a drop hammer test to determine flexibility and strength in specific areas. Only qualified structural engineers following the British Standards BS8204 regulations are permitted to conduct such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.

Latex Screed Blaydon

When a certain amount of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor you may find that the use of a latex screed will be advantageous. Latex screeds come in two parts - a bottle and a bag - with the bottle containing liquid latex and the bag containing a cement powder. The latex liquid solution replaces the water that would typically be used in a screed mix, and is more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds.

Before the installation of your chosen decorative surface, this latex product is used for levelling-out subfloors. This screeding is appropriate for use on substrate of asphalt, quarry tiles, wood, concrete and sand/cement, to give a durable, smooth surface that is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives. If there happens to be a bit of movement in the sub-floor this type of screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish on which you can lay your final floor coverings.

With a "floating" screed, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, latex flooring screeds won't be appropriate. Floating screeds with a depth of 50-65mm are typically used over underfloor heating. (Tags: Latex Screeds Blaydon, Latex Floor Screed Blaydon, Latex Screeding Blaydon, Latex Screed Blaydon).
