Working with a skilled and qualified flooring specialist will ensure that you get the appropriate kind of screed for the room's allocated purpose and get the maximum lifespan out of the resulting floor. Picking the appropriate screeding materials and the method of installation is crucial if you want to end up with a quality and durable finish for your floor surface.

Standard Screeds - Used in domestic flooring projects where the mixture of sand and cement is good for everyday floor traffic use. The ratios involved are five parts sand to one part cement. After being laid a standard screed sets at a rate of 1mm/day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are required, by a latex and cement compound. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all kinds of flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of only one millimetre, but will still provide a high strength surface to take a varied selection of flooring finishes.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional contractors for use in combination with under floor heating systems. The greater flex and strength offered by the fibres in the screed help protect the resulting floor from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. It has a setting rate of one millimetre per day.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is essential. Polymer screeds are available from many screed manufacturers and owing to their diverse chemical compositions have distinct drying times for each product.

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

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to use the floor ASAP a fast drying screed can be utilised. They are typically a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are used in time critical projects.


To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that is durable and hard wearing, time must be spent on fully preparing the area prior to any screeding material being laid. It's important that any contaminants such as oil, loose debris, paint or grease is eliminated from the floor before pouring any screed, because these can affect the adhesion process that a good quality floor screed demands.

If cleaning products have been used it's important to remove any residues of detergent, soap etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor then all cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and causing deviations on the finished floor surface. During an on-site survey the screeding contractor will ascertain what preparations are needed before any actual screeding work starts.

To shield the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be laid. The damp proof membrane is made from thick polythene and various layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

If your property is located in a place where radon is found a supplementary barrier layer is needed to stop radon gas from seeping through. If radon occurs in severe doses then a complete ventilation and extraction system might be needed beneath the screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from ground level.

The final step of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a sealant or primer. These sealers and primers will ensure that the screed bonds perfectly to the base surface and help produce a top quality finished floor. Owing to their special nature, only professional screeding contractors in Dorridge should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and through the use of equipment that's made for this task.

If you are installing underfloor heating, now is the time that it will need to be properly laid out and installed. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement during screed installation process. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system should produce even warmth in all areas of the floor.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared on site and poured onto the floor base. Your proposed use of the room will help your screeding contractor on which type of floor screed is best for your needs. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least a 24 hour 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 using standard or heavy duty screeds the setting time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed so as to get the best possible finish to your floor.

You can test the SR level of the finished screed as soon as it is solidified enough for walking on. The standard SR test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest standard and permits only 3mm of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the screed has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5mm or less it is classified as SR2 level and is the standard for commercial and industrial projects.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is fairly inconsequential the SR3 is the standard and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If your screed floor has been laid with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be required to conduct tests. Using specialist equipment the engineer will evaluate the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. The screeding should be given a drop hammer test to assess flexibility and strength in different areas. Only qualified structural engineers observing the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to perform these tests and sign off on the structural integrity of screed flooring.

Latex Floor Screed Dorridge

When the surface of a floor needs a certain amount of flexibility, it is better to use a latex screeding. Latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cement powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex. The liquid latex additive actually replaces the water that would typically be used for mixing screed, and is quicker drying and far more flexible than standard screeds.

Before the laying of your chosen decorative surface, this latex compound is used for levelling sub-floors. Appropriate for substrate of wood, asphalt, concrete, quarry tiles and sand/cement, this screed gives a perfect surface for the application of adhesives which is also resilient and smooth. Even where there happens to be movement in your subfloor, this latex floor screed will produce a flexible, crack-free finish.

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