British Standards BS8204 lays out the guidelines and regulations that all Dalgety Bay screeding companies are required to follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc), they ought to be certified by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. The testing and training of a screeding company by such manufacturers is emphasised by the use of this accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any flooring project involving their materials.

Standard Screeds - This is acceptable for everyday domestic use and is a mix of cement and sand. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the normal mix for standard screeds. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre per day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement material which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all types of flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be poured to a depth of just 1mm, but will still provide a strong surface to take a selection of flooring materials.

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

Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a lower thickness. The drying times for these vary as outlined by product guidelines.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries quickly and allows you to use the floor area much faster. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are appropriate for a wide array of projects where the speedier drying rate of 3-7mm/day is a welcome advantage.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional installers for use in combination with under floor heating systems. This is due to the improved strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the special fibres within the screed. It sets at the same rate as a standard screed of one millimetre per day.


Screeding installers will have to fully prepare the area prior to any other work in order to guarantee a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. Any paint, grease, debris and oil on the existing floor level can affect the bonding of the screed, and must be eradicated.

Screeding Near Dalgety Bay (KY11)

Any cleansing products that are used in this process should leave no residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. At this point any cracks should be mended since these can easily travel up through the laid screed and be visible in the completed floor surface. An experienced Dalgety Bay screeding company will pick up on these aspects during a on-site survey and make certain all preparations are finished before pressing on with the next stages of the floor screeding process.

Before any screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be put down to shield the screed and final flooring from dampness. There may be 2 or 3 layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon gas then one additional barrier is essential to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. This could be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in severe situations a ventilation system will be installed under the floor screed to take away any inflow of radon gas from ground level.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeders will apply a primer or sealant to the prepared base surface. A primer helps with the screed bonding process to the base surface and different varieties exist depending on which kind of screed is being used. Owing to their special nature, only qualified screeding specialists in Dalgety Bay should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and using bespoke equipment for this task.

If you are going to be installing underfloor heating, now is the time that it will need to be correctly set out and installed. Insulation panels can be put in position and the cables and heating pipes will be firmly mounted to prevent any movement while the screed is poured. When professionally installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm a room and high quality screed will retain its heat, creating an even level of warmth right across the floor surface.

The screeding can now be prepared on site and spread onto the floor surface. The particular requirements of the room will determine the kind of screeding used. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least a twenty four hour delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further 72 hours minimum before you can install any flooring materials. If you're laying heavy duty or standard screeds the setting time is increased and you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best finish for your floor.

Once the screeding has set it can be checked for quality to establish its SR standard. The standard SR test involves the use of a 2 metre straight edge to check for any deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3mm or less as measured over the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the highest quality and classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the entire screeded surface.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10 millimetres or less the screed quality is categorised as SR3 and is fine for garage and utility areas.

If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is required to perform the tests. Using specialist equipment the engineer will ascertain the screed strength and viability of use in a load bearing environment. A "drop hammer test" is carried out on various areas of the screed and the outcomes noted. Any screeding that has load bearing requirements must be approved by a qualified structural engineer applying the BS8204 guidelines.

Coloured Floor Screeds

Multi-coloured screeds are a type of flooring material mostly employed in commercial or industrial settings. These screeds are made up of a combination of coloured aggregates, resins, and sealants that are blended together to create a unique and distinctive finish. They are commonly used in areas where there is heavy footfall or machinery, as they provide a slip-resistant and durable surface that can withstand a lot of wear and tear.

To achieve a specific aesthetic or match a business's branding, multi-coloured screeds can be tailored accordingly. Their ease of cleaning and maintenance makes them a sought-after option for facilities that demand a high level of hygiene. The seamless finish offered by multi-coloured screeds, which eliminates joints or grout lines, makes them an ideal choice for cleanrooms and similar environments. Architects and designers have the freedom to create bespoke flooring designs that meet their project requirements by selecting the aggregates' colour, shape and size in coloured screeds. Overall, multi-coloured screeds offer a practical and versatile flooring solution that can improve both the function and style of any commercial or industrial space.

Latex Screed Dalgety Bay

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a certain amount of flexibility is needed, it may be best to use a latex floor screed, as opposed to one with an unyielding finish. Latex screeds generally comprise two parts - a cementitious powder and a liquid latex additive. The latex liquid additive replaces the water that would normally be used in a screed mix, and is quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

This latex screed product is used to level-out a subfloor prior to the final decorative surface being installed. This screed is suitable for subfloors made of concrete, wood, quarry tiles, sand/cement or asphalt, is perfect for the application of adhesives and gives a durable, smooth surface. If your sub-floor has a bit of movement in it, this type of latex screeding will produce a crack-free, flexible finish, upon which your final floor coverings can sit.

When installing a "floating" screed, i.e. when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of thermal or acoustic insulation, screed thicknesses of 50 to 75 millimetres may be required, and latex screeds are not suited to this purpose.

Granolithic Screeding Dalgety Bay

Granolithic screeding refers to a type of flooring that consists of a mixture of sand, cement and aggregate. It is applied in a relatively thin layer and then smoothed to provide a seamless, durable and hard-wearing surface. It is typically used in commercial, public and industrial buildings where there's heavy foot or machinery traffic.

The resulting flooring is easy to clean, hard-wearing and slip-resistant, making it ideal for use in areas with high foot traffic, such as shopping centres, factories and schools.

Granolithic screeding is typically applied over a concrete base, and the surface is normally treated with a curing compound to make sure it sets correctly. As soon as it has cured, it creates a seamless floor with a smooth, hard surface that is resistant to wear. It is also resistant to water and chemicals, which makes it well suited for use in environments where there is a chance of spills or exposure to hazardous materials.... READ MORE.
