The skills and training that a qualified screeding contractor brings to your project should guarantee a high quality outcome and help to lengthen the lifetime of your flooring. Choosing the appropriate screeding materials and the method of installation is vital if you want to finish up with a quality and durable finish for your floor surface.

Before selecting a floor screeding company from those based in the Exeter area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their estimate, and also make sure you get multiple quotes. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the figure to keep your eye on when reviewing a quote from your Exeter screeding contractor.

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

Every Exeter screeding company has to stick to British Standards (BS8204) and ought to have some kind of accreditation from screeding material and equipment manufacturers, e.g. Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete.

Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential projects where the combination of cement and sand is ideal for everyday footfall use. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. This 5 to 1 ratio standard flooring screed will set hard at a rate of just one millimetre per day after laying.

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

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is required because of construction factors, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to this problem. The setting times vary in accordance with product guidelines.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to progress urgently with the flooring owing to time limitations, this screed dries much faster than standard screeds. They are usually a fibre reinforced type of screed which can dry out at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are used in time-sensitive projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use on top of underfloor heating. This is due to the improved durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the fibres within the screed mix. At about one millimetre per day, it has a similar curing rate to standard floor screed.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex solution. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all flooring materials to be laid. These can be as little as one millimetre thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.


Screeding companies will have to fully prepare the area prior to any other work in order to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. The existing floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eliminate any debris, oil, grease and paint which might affect the adhesion of the screeding.

Any cleansing products used in this process should leave no residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry out naturally. It's vital to mend any cracks in the base to stop them being reflected and "travelling" upwards into your freshly screeded floor. A reputable Exeter screeding company will pick up on these aspects during a on-site survey and ensure all preparations are complete before moving on to the next stages of the floor screeding process.

Before the screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed to protect the screed and final flooring from moisture. Different thicknesses of polythene sheeting might be used as a DPM and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.

A further airtight barrier may be required if your home or business premises is in an area which is known to be susceptible to radon. If radon gas occurs in large amounts then a complete ventilation and extraction system may be installed under the layer of screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from the ground.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealant. Primers assist with the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the sort of screed that is being applied. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by experienced screeding companies in Exeter following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Under floor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before screeding is poured. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and mounted firmly on insulation panels to stop any movement in the course of the screed pouring process. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system should produce even warmth across the floor area.

The screed can now be prepared in situ and spread onto the base. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the kind of screeding that is used. Bear in mind that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any screeded surface and a minimum seventy two hours before any flooring materials can be fitted. This timescale is longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's instructions must be followed to the letter to create the optimum finish and longevity of the floor.

As soon as the screed has hardened it can be checked for quality to verify the SR standard. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any variations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest quality and permits just three millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the floor deviates from the straight edge by five millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the normal standard for commercial and industrial floors.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is categorised as SR3 and is fine for utility and garage areas.

If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to perform the testing. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will ascertain the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. This should include a drop hammer test which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. The precise testing and measurement tools mean this can only be performed by a competent structural engineer observing the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screed Exeter

When the make-up of your floor's surface means that a degree of flexibility is needed, it may be an advantage to apply a latex floor screed, as opposed to one with an unyielding finish. Generally coming in two parts, latex screeds comprise a cementitious powder and a liquid latex component. The liquid latex additive takes the place of the water that is used in other types of screed, meaning that it's quicker drying and more flexible.

Used in the levelling-out of sub-floors, this latex product provides a suitable surface for the laying of your chosen floor finish. Providing a durable, smooth surface which is perfect for the application of adhesives, this is is suitable for use on sub-floors of sand/cement, concrete, quarry tiles, asphalt and wood. If your sub-floor has a bit of movement in it, this latex screeding will produce a flexible, crack-free finish, upon which your final floor coverings can sit.

When installing a "floating" screed, for instance when a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, screed thicknesses of 50-75mm may be required, and latex floor screeds aren't suited to this purpose.
