Standard Screeds - This is good for basic residential usage and is a blend of sand and cement. This mixture uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre each day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use over the top of under floor heating. The greater flex and strength offered by the special fibres within the screed help protect the resulting floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm/day.

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

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area as soon as possible a fast drying screed can be employed. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, determined by the mixture, they're normally a fibre reinforced screed and are suitable for flooring projects that have tight deadlines.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is needed this mix of of latex and cement is used to achieve SR1 level screed flooring. Mostly used to improve a damaged floor or poor substrate level so as to lay a brand new flooring surface, like tiling over the top of it. Even with a thickness of just one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a minimal thickness. Polymer screeds are available from many screed manufacturers and owing to their varying chemical compositions have distinct setting times for each individual product.


Preparation is crucial for a high quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. It is vital that all contaminants such as debris, grease, oil or paint is eliminated from the base before pouring any screed, since these can affect the bonding process that a good quality screed requires.

Any cleansing chemicals used during this phase should leave no residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry out naturally. It's essential to fix any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to stop them being visible and "travelling" upwards into your freshly screeded floor. A skilled Chipping Ongar screeding installer will address such problems during the on-site survey and make sure that all preparations are finished before moving on to the next stages of the screeding process.

Before the screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed to shield the screed and final flooring from moisture. Different thicknesses of polythene sheets could be used as a DPM and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.

If your property is situated in an area where radon gas is present an extra barrier layer is required to prevent radon gas from entering. An air-tight membrane could be suitable in locations with relatively low radon measurements, however in more serious cases there may need to be a more sophisticated extraction and ventilation system to take away any ground penetrating radon gases.

The final phase of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealer. A primer helps with the screed to successfully bond to the base and membranes and different types exist based on which kind of screed is being applied. Devices such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, by qualified screeding companies in Chipping Ongar following the manufacturer's guidelines.

If you are going to be installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be properly laid out and installed. Insulation panels can be arranged and the cabling and heating pipes will be firmly fastened to prevent any movement while the screed is poured. When professionally installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm a room and decent quality screed retains its heat, generating an even heat across the floor surface.

Needless to say, if you aren't putting in under floor heating, you can just bypass this step and apply the floor screed. Your screeding company will have given you advice and guidance on which screed type is appropriate for your requirements, in line with your proposed use of the room area. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least twenty four hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further seventy two hours minimum before you are able to install any flooring materials. If you're aiming to wind up with a properly finished and durable floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to heavy duty and standard screeds where the waiting period will be longer.

As soon as the screeding has set it can be quality checked to confirm the SR standard. Using a 2 metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any dips, deviations and ridges in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3mm or less being measured across the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the highest quality and is categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the whole floor.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a quality finish is not needed. This classification can have a maximum permissible deviation of 10 millimetres.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is required to conduct the testing. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will assess the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. An assessment called the drop hammer test will be carried out on different areas of the screed and the results documented. The specialist testing and measurement tools needed mean this can only be undertaken by a qualified structural engineer observing the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeds Chipping Ongar

When a level of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor you may find that the employment of a latex floor screed will be best. Normally coming in 2 parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cementitious powder and a liquid latex mixture. Where water is normally used in a screed mix, this is replaced with the latex liquid, meaning it is more flexible than other types of screed, and quicker drying.

Used in the levelling of subfloors, this latex product creates a surface for the installation of your chosen floor finish. Appropriate for subfloors of wood, concrete, asphalt, stone tiles and sand/cement, this screeding gives the ideal surface for the application of adhesives which is also durable and smooth. This latex screeding will provide a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there happens to be a bit of movement in your subfloor.

With "floating" screeds, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid on top of a layer of acoustic or thermal insulation, latex floor screeds will not be appropriate. Floating screeds with a depth of 50mm-75mm are normally used on top of underfloor heating.
