Picking the right screeding materials and the best installation technique is vital if you want to end up with a quality and durable finish for your floor surface.

Before choosing a floor screeding contractor from those operating in the Brechin area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quotation, and also make certain that you get multiple estimates. For residential properties an estimate will usually be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) standard of SR1 or SR2. Each of the three SR levels provide different standards of finish, with SR1 offering the highest, with the lowest amount of deviation over the area of the floor. An SR2 or SR3 level could mean there will be ridges or flat spots that may cause issues when installing your final flooring surface (carpet, wood, tile etc).

Standard Screeds - A combination of cement and sand which is good for normal residential usage. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the typical mixture for standard screeds. Once laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of 1mm each day.

Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Polymer screeds are made by many manufacturers and due to their diverse chemical compositions have specific setting times for each individual product.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement solution which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. Mainly used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, such as tiling over the top of it. These can be as little as 1mm in depth, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured option where under floor heating is being installed in residential homes in Brechin. The improved strength and flex offered by the fibres within this screed help protect the flooring from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. At about one millimetre per day, it has a similar drying rate to standard floor screed.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that is designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where maximum durability and strength is essential.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries rapidly and allows you to use the floor area much faster. Drying at a rate of three to seven millimetres, depending on the specialised mix, they're typically a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are great for projects that have tight schedules.


To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish which is durable and hard wearing, time must be spent on fully preparing the area before any screed is laid. It is important that all contaminants such as debris, oil, paint or grease is eliminated from the floor surface before laying any screed, because these can affect the adhesion capability that a good quality floor screed needs.

If any cleaning products were used during this stage it is vital to ensure that no residues of soaps or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. It's vital to repair any crevices or cracks in the floor surface to stop them being visible and "travelling" up into the newly screeded floor. A genuine Brechin screeding company will pick up on these problems during the site survey and make certain that all preparations are complete before applying the next stages of the screeding process.

Before any screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed to protect the final flooring and screed from dampness. Different thicknesses of polythene sheeting may be used as a DPM and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation materials.

A further air-tight barrier could be required if your house is in a location which is known to be prone to radon. A simple airtight membrane may be enough in locations with low emissions of radon, but in more severe situations there may have to be a more sophisticated ventilation and extraction system to block any ground penetrating radon gases.

Once the floor base has been properly prepared and all membranes installed, a sealant or primer is then applied. These sealers and primers will make certain the screed bonds successfully to the base surface and help to accomplish a quality finished floor. These materials need qualified contractors to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using bespoke equipment, such as airless sprays.

If you're installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be correctly laid out and installed. Insulation panels can be put in position and the heating pipes and wires will be securely fastened so that there is no movement whilst the screed is being applied. When professionally installed an underfloor heating system is an excellent way to warm up a room and good quality screeding will retain its heat, producing an even level of warmth across the floor surface.

If you are not fitting underfloor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the form of screeding used. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least a 24 hour delay before it can be walked over, and a further 3 days minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. If you are looking to wind up with a nicely finished and hard-wearing floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where the waiting period will be increased.

You can test the SR level of the completed screeding once it's solidified enough for walking on. The test involves the use of a 2m straight edge laid down upon the surface and any variations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less as measured across the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and is classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the whole screeded floor.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a quality finish isn't required. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10mm.

It might also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to do a soundness test. The testing will make sure that your newly laid screeding is viable for the load point requirements laid out in the original site survey. The screed layer should be subjected to what is known as a "drop hammer test" to assess flexibility and strength at different points. The specialist measurement and testing tools mean that this can only be conducted by a qualified structural engineer applying the BS8204 guidelines.

Granolithic Screeding

Granolithic screeding is a process of creating an even and smooth surface for floor coverings like tiles or carpets. It involves mixing aggregate, cement and sand to form a mixture, which is then applied to a concrete base. The mixture is levelled with a straight edge to give it a smooth surface.

This technique is commonly used in commercial and industrial buildings, high-traffic residential areas, and spaces that require abrasion and chemical resistance. The resulting surface is easy to clean, durable, and provides a perfect base for other flooring products.

The granolithic screeding process involves preparation of the concrete base, mixing the screed mixture, laying the mixture, and giving it time to cure. Correct application and curing techniques are crucial for the longevity and strength of the screed. The screed must be fully cured before any further flooring materials are laid.... READ MORE.
