The training and skills that a screeding contractor brings to your project should guarantee a successful end result and help in extending the lifespan of your flooring. Choosing the appropriate screeding materials and the method of installation is crucial if you want to end up with a durable and quality finish for your floor.

There are several screeding companies in the Downend area so try to get multiple quotes for your floor screeding project before choosing a contractor and know to what standard of finish it's for. The price quote may be based on what's called the SR, or Surface Regularity calculation. Each of the 3 SR levels provide different qualities of finish, with SR1 being the highest quality, with the lowest amount of deviation over the area. Any imperfections in the screeding can cause problems in laying flooring due to ridges, flat spots, indentations in the floor surface.

The regulations and guidelines laid down in the British Standards BS8204 must be followed by any Downend floor screeding company and they must also be approved by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc.) to demonstrate their competence and safe working practices.

Downend commercial screeders will be involved in the screeding of floors in shops, schools, hospitals, restaurants, warehouses and factories.


Standard Screeds - Used in domestic flooring projects where the combination of sand and cement is perfect for standard floor traffic usage. The ratios involved in standard screeds are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of 1mm per day.

Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a minimal thickness. Manufacturer's guidelines for drying times differ across the various product ranges.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum strength and durability in areas where traffic is expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor base is required.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use on top of underfloor heating. The increased flex and strength offered by the special fibres in the screed mix help protect the flooring from thermal cracking and shrinkage. At around one millimetre per day, it has a similar setting rate to standard screed.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this blend of latex and cement is used to produce SR1 quality screed flooring. Mainly used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, like tiling over it. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry at a quicker rate and allow you to use the floor area much sooner. They are generally a fibre reinforced screed which can dry out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are employed in time-sensitive flooring projects.


Preparation is vital for a quality finished screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. It is important that all contaminants such as oil, paint, grease or loose debris is removed from the floor surface before laying any screed, because these can affect the adhesion capability that a good quality screed requires.

If cleansing products have been used it is crucial to remove any residues of soap or detergent, and allow the surface to dry naturally. It's essential to mend any crevices or cracks in the surface to stop them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into your newly screeded floor. During a site survey your Downend screeding installer will establish what preparations are necessary 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) must be installed. Different thicknesses of polythene sheets could be used as a damp proof membrane and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation material.

If your home is located in an area where radon is found an extra barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from getting through. This can be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in more serious cases an extraction and ventilation system will be installed under the screeding to take away any inflow of radon gas from the ground.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeders will apply a sealant or primer to the prepared floor base. These sealers and primers will guarantee the screed bonds effectively to the base and help create a high quality finished floor. Because of their special nature, only trained screeding contractors in Downend should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and through the use of equipment that's made for the task.

If you are installing underfloor heating, now is the time that it will need to be properly set out and installed. Insulation panels will be put in position and the cabling and heating pipes will be firmly fastened so that there is no movement whilst the screed is being poured. When properly installed an under floor heating system is an effective way to warm a room and high quality screed retains its heat, producing an even heat right across the floor surface.

If you aren't fitting under floor heating the screed will now be prepared in situ and laid. Your use of the room will help the screeding company on what sort of floor screed is right for your requirements. Be aware that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any laid surfaces and at least three days before any flooring can be fitted. This time period is longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's guidelines must be followed to achieve the optimum finish and durability of the floor.

You can assess the SR standard of the finished screed as soon as it's hardened enough to walk on. The basic SR test uses a two metre straight edge to check for any deviations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any disparities greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole screeded surface.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10mm or less the quality of the screeding is classified as SR3 and is suitable for garage and utility areas.

If your screed has been installed with specific loading in mind then a structural engineer will be needed to carry out the tests. The assessment will make certain that your newly laid screeded surface is viable for the load bearing requirements specified in the site survey. The screed could be subjected to what is known as a "drop hammer test" to gauge strength and flexibility at distinct points. Any screeding that's got point load requirements must be approved by a certified structural engineer obeying the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.
