Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to progress urgently with the flooring due to time limitations, this screed dries more speedily than standard flooring screeds. These are normally a fibre reinforced type of screed that dries out at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are employed in time critical flooring projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional contractors for use with underfloor heating systems. The increased strength and flex provided by the special fibres in this screed help protect the resulting floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. It has a drying rate of 1mm per day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are essential, by a cement and latex solution. Primarily used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level so as to lay a new flooring surface, such as tiling over it. They can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are high or heavy loading of the floor is required, heavy duty screeds offer maximum durability and strength.

Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a lower thickness. Because of their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying setting times which can be verified by reading manufacturer's guidelines.


Screeding companies will have to prepare the area before proceeding with any other work so as to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. Any oil, debris, paint and grease on the original floor level can affect the bonding of the screed, and should be eradicated.

Screeding Near Burnham (SL2)

If cleansing products were used it's essential to remove any residues of soap, detergent etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. It is essential to repair any crevices or cracks in the base to stop them being reflected and "travelling" up into your freshly screeded floor. During an on-site survey your Burnham screeding installer will establish what preparations are necessary before starting to work on the actual screeding.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed. Different thicknesses of polythene sheeting could be used as a DPM and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation materials.

If the area is at risk from radon gas then another barrier is necessary to stop the gas from entering via the ground. If radon occurs in severe doses then a full extraction and ventilation system might be needed underneath the screed which will remove any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

Once the floor base has been properly prepared and any membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. These sealers and primers will make certain that the screed bonds perfectly to the base surface and help accomplish a high quality finished floor. Owing to their specialist nature, only professional screeding specialists in Burnham are capable of using them correctly, safely and through the use of bespoke equipment for the task.

If required, this is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. Insulation panels will be positioned and the cabling and heating pipes will be securely mounted so there's no movement while the screed is being applied. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system will give an even level of warmth all over the floor.

If you're not installing underfloor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and poured. Your intended use of the room will assist your screeding contractor on what sort of screed is ideal for your needs. After the pouring of the screed there is at least twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk on the surface, and a 72 hrs minimum curing time before the laying of any floor coverings. Such timescales will be longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to the letter to create the optimal finish and longevity of the floor.

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

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest quality and allows just three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole floor surface.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10 millimetres or less the screed quality is categorised as SR3 and is suitable for utility and garage areas.

It may also be necessary for a structural engineer to perform a soundness test. This assessment will determine the overall strength of the screeded surface and its suitability for the intended use. A "drop hammer test" is carried out on several areas of the screed and the outcomes recorded. The precise testing and measurement tools mean that this can only be carried out by a certified structural engineer heeding the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Screeding Burnham

It is advantageous to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a certain amount of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cement based smoothing compound, and the bottle containing a liquid latex. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed, as the water which is normally used is substituted with the latex liquid.

This latex screed product is used to level-out a subfloor before the final decorative surface is installed. This screeding is suitable for use on sub-floors of wood, quarry tiles, asphalt, concrete and sand/cement, to give a resilient, smooth surface that is perfect for the application of adhesives. This type of latex floor screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there's a bit of movement in your subfloor.

Latex floor screeds are not appropriate where "floating" screeds are required, for instance when a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of either thermal or acoustic insulation, such as may be the case when you're screeding on top of underfloor heating, and screed depths of 50 to 75 millimetres may be needed.

Burnham Skip Hire

Skip Hire Burnham

It's pretty rare that you will undertake a property revamp or home renovation project without creating a fair amount of waste which will need to be removed and carefully disposed of. Your specific floor screeding project may generate very little waste, and then again it might result in a lot. If waste removal isn't included in the job quote, you'll need to organise this yourself, since quite a few screeding companies don't have the facility to do this.

Regardless of whether the tradesperson is sorting this out or you're doing it yourself, hiring a skip will often be the best waste removal solution. Skips come in different sizes based on your requirements, and choosing which skip to order is crucial. You can choose between a mini-skip, a midi-skip, a builders skip or a roll-on roll-off skip, or for modest home projects you can even go with the skip bag alternative.
