For domestic properties a quotation will generally be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) calculation of SR1 or SR2.

An SR2 or SR3 level may mean there are ridges or flat spots that may cause issues when installing your final flooring materials.

The assessment and training of a screeding contractor by such manufacturers is emphasised through the accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any flooring project which involves their materials.

Standard Screeds - This is good for basic residential use and comprises a mixture of cement and sand. The ratios involved are five parts sand to one part cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum durability and strength in areas where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor base is needed.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex mixture. This is mainly needed to produce a high quality floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. Even with a depth of only one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a minimal thickness. On account of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying setting times which can be verified by reading manufacturer's product guidelines.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry quickly and allow you to use the floor area much faster. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm/day, determined by the mix, they're typically a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are ideal for projects that have tight deadlines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with under floor heating and is the favoured option in these projects. This is because of the improved strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the special fibres within the screed mix. The screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm/day.


Good preparation is vital for a top quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The original floor surfaces should be cleaned to eradicate any grease, paint, oil and debris which might affect the adhesion of the screeding.

Screeding Near Dumbarton (G82)

Any cleansing chemicals which are used in this stage shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and producing deviations on the finished surface. During a site survey the screeding contractor will establish what preparations are required before any actual screeding commences.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be laid. There may be two or three layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

A supplementary airtight barrier may be needed if your home or business premises is in a location that is known to be susceptible to radon. A simple air-tight membrane could be enough in areas with low levels of radon, however in more serious cases there might need to be a more complicated ventilation and extraction system to block any harmful radon gases.

Once these steps have been taken the screeding company will apply a sealant or primer to the prepared base. These primers and sealers will guarantee the screed bonds perfectly to the floor base and help to create a good quality finished floor. These substances require experienced contractors to apply them in the correct proportions by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.

Before the screeding is poured, any under floor heating will now be installed. The heating pipes and cables are firmly attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure they are laid in the correct position. When skillfully installed an under floor heating system is an efficient way to warm a room and decent quality screeding will retain its heat, producing an even level of warmth across the floor surface.

The screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and applied to the base surface. The specific requirements of the room will determine the kind of screeding used. After the pouring of the screed there will be at least twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk on the surface, and a seventy two hours minimum curing period before the laying of any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for heavy duty and standard screeds must be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and even floor surface.

You can evaluate the SR level of the finished screeding once it is hard enough for walking on. The basic SR test involves the use of a two metre straight edge to check for any fluctuations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there aren't any deviations of more than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - If the screed has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5 millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10 millimetres or less the screeding quality is classified as SR3 and is suitable for utility and garage areas.

If your screed has been laid with specific loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be required to perform tests. The assessment will ensure your new screed is suitable for the load bearing requirements set down in the original site survey. The screed could be given what's known as a "drop hammer test" to assess flexibility and strength in specific areas. The specialist measurement and testing tools needed mean that this can only be conducted by a competent structural engineer respecting the guidelines of BS8204.

Granolithic Screeding Dumbarton

Granolithic screeding is a popular flooring material that is widely used in heavy-duty environments due to its strength and durability. It is made from a mixture of sand, aggregate, cement, and sometimes pigments, which are combined to form a mortar-like mixture. The mixture is poured onto the floor and then smoothed out to an even, level surface.

This technique is frequently used in industrial and commercial buildings, high-traffic residential areas, and spaces that require abrasion and chemical resistance. The resulting surface is easy to clean, durable, and provides a perfect base for other flooring products.

The granolithic screeding process involves several steps, including preparation of the concrete sub-base, blending of the screed mixture, laying of the mixture, and curing of the screed. Correct mixing, application and curing methods are vital to ensure the durability and strength of the finished surface. Furthermore, the screed should be allowed to fully cure before any flooring materials are laid on top of it.... READ MORE.
