Standard Screeds - A mix of cement and sand which is good for basic domestic use. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. The standard flooring screed will dry at a rate of 1mm thickness each day.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is needed. Maker's guidelines for drying times are different across the product ranges.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with underfloor heating and is the favoured choice in such projects. The fibres in the screed mix improve it's durability and strength whilst also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It dries at the same rate as a standard screed, at about 1mm per day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds provide maximum durability and strength.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to press ahead urgently with the flooring owing to time constraints, these screeds dry more speedily than standard screeds.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are needed, by a latex and cement formula. This self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all kinds of flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be laid to a depth of just one millimetre, but will still provide a strong surface to take a selection of flooring finishes.


Screeding installers will need to prepare the area before proceeding with any other work in order to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It is crucial that any contaminants such as grease, oil, debris or paint is removed from the floor surface before laying any screed, since these can affect the bonding process that a good quality screed requires.

Any cleaning products used in this process shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry out naturally. It's essential to repair any crevices or cracks in the base to stop them being visible and "travelling" upwards into your newly screeded floor. An on-site survey will allow your Chapel St Leonards screeding company to take note of these preparation areas and complete them before starting to apply the screed layer.

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 sheets may be used as a DPM and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation materials.

If your house is located in an area where radon gas is found a supplementary barrier layer is required to prevent radon gas from getting through. An airtight membrane might be enough in locations with low levels of radon, however in more severe cases there may need to be a more complicated ventilation and extraction system to take away any ground penetrating radon gases.

Once these stages have been completed the screeders will put on a sealant or primer to the prepared base surface. Primers and sealers help with the bonding process and are special applications specifically designed for the kind of screed that is being used. These products need experienced tradesmen to apply them in the correct proportions by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

If you are installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be properly laid out and installed. Insulation panels can be laid out and the heating pipes and wires will be firmly attached to prevent any movement whilst the screed is applied. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system will provide even level of warmth across the floor area.

If you're not putting in under floor heating the screed will now be prepared on site and laid. Your intended use of the room will help the screeding company on which kind of screed is appropriate for your requirements. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least a 24 hour delay before it can be walked on, and a further 3 days minimum before you are able to install any flooring materials. Such timescales will be increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's instructions should be followed to produce the optimal finish and durability of the floor.

Once the screed has set it can be quality checked to determine its SR standard. The standard SR test uses a 2m long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less being measured across the entire floor area shows your screeding to be of the best quality and classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the finish is comparatively immaterial the SR3 is the standard and should have a deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is needed to conduct the tests. This test will establish the overall strength of the screeding and its viability for the intended use. This will include a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only experienced structural engineers obeying the British Standards BS8204 regulations are allowed to conduct such testing and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.
