It might be necessary, depending on the proposed use of the area, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform with building regulations on point loadings, flex strength and load requirements of the screed floor.

Bringing in a skilled and highly trained flooring specialist will guarantee that you use the proper form of screed for the room's proposed purpose and get the maximum lifespan out of the resulting floor. Choosing the correct screeding materials and the best installation technique is crucial if you want to finish up with a durable and quality finish for your floor.

Before choosing a screeding contractor from any operating in the Brighouse area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their estimate, and also ensure that you get two or three estimates. For domestic homes a quotation will normally be given for a Surface Regularity (SR) calculation of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the highest quality, and while SR2 and SR3 might seem more cost-effective initially, they do not guarantee a perfectly even or flat surface. This means you may have to rectify any areas that could cause issues when putting down your final flooring solution.

Standard Screeds - This is ideal for standard domestic usage and is a blend of sand and cement. The standard screed is a mixture of 5 parts sand to 1 of cement. After laying a standard screed dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where the maximum possible strength and durability is very important.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to move forward urgently with the flooring due to time limitations, this screed dries much faster than standard flooring screeds. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are perfect for a whole host of flooring projects where the faster drying rate of 3-7mm/day is a big advantage.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use on top of under floor heating. The improved flexibility and strength provided by the special fibres in the screed mix help protect the flooring from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. At roughly 1mm per day, it has a similar drying rate to standard floor screed.

Polymer Screeds - These provide an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Polymer screeds are made by many manufacturers and due to their varying chemical compositions have distinct setting times for each individual product.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this compound of latex and cement is used to produce SR1 level screed flooring. Primarily used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level in order to lay a brand new flooring surface, like tiles on top of it. These can be as little as 1mm thick, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.


To make certain that the screeding is of a high quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time should be devoted to carefully preparing the area prior to any screed being poured. It is crucial that any contaminants such as paint, grease, loose debris or oil is eradicated from the floor before pouring any screed, since these can affect the adhesion capability that a good quality screed demands.

If cleansing products were used it is essential to remove any residues of soap or detergent, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. It is necessary to mend any cracks or crevices in the base to stop them being mirrored and "travelling" up into the newly screeded floor. A site survey will allow your Brighouse screeding contractor to highlight these preparation areas and finish them before commencing to apply the screed layer.

To protect the flooring materials and screeding layer from moisture rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be laid. The damp proof membrane is made of thick polythene sheeting and different layers could be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If your house is situated in an area where radon is present a supplementary barrier layer is required to prevent radon gas from seeping through. A simple airtight membrane might be sufficient in locations with low emissions of radon, however in more severe cases there may have to be a more complex extraction system to remove any ground penetrating radon gas.

The final step of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a sealer or primer. A primer helps with the screed bonding process to the base and different types exist based on which kind of screed is being used. These substances need qualified contractors to apply them in the right ratios by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Before any screed can be poured, any under floor heating (if required) will now be installed. Insulation panels can be positioned and the cabling and heating pipes will be securely attached so that there is no movement while the screed is being applied. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system should produce even level of warmth across the floor area.

If you aren't installing under floor heating the screed can now be prepared on site and poured. Your use of the room will help the screeding specialist on which form of screed is best for your requirements. Bear in mind that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any screeded surfaces and at least seventy two hours before any flooring can be laid. This period is increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to the letter to achieve the optimum finish and longevity of the floor.

As soon as the screeding has solidified it can be checked for quality to establish the SR level. Through the use of 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 disparities of more than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to five millimetres.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the finish is relatively inconsequential the SR3 is the standard and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

There might also be a requirement for a structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. This test will establish the strength of the screed surface and its suitability for the proposed use. An assessment called the drop hammer test is performed on several areas of the screed and the results documented. Only trained structural engineers observing the British Standards BS8204 regulations are allowed to conduct these tests and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.

Latex Floor Screeds Brighouse

When the surface of a floor needs a level of flexibility, it is better to use a latex self-levelling screeding. Latex floor screeds generally comprise two parts - a cementitious powder and a latex liquid component. The latex liquid part actually replaces the water which would typically be used for mixing floor screed, and is much more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed.

Used for levelling subfloors, this latex compound provides a surface for the laying of the final floor finish. This is suitable for subfloors made from wood, concrete, quarry tiles, sand/cement or asphalt, is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a smooth, durable surface. If your subfloor has a bit of movement in it, this type of screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish, onto which your chosen floor coverings can be laid.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screeding is being laid over the top of underfloor heating, depths of 50mm-65mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds are not appropriate for this purpose.
