Standard Screeds - Frequently used in residential projects where the combination of sand and cement is okay for normal floor traffic use. This mixture uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. This five to one ratio standard flooring screed will set hard at a rate of just 1mm per day after applying.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use over the top of underfloor heating. The improved strength and flex provided by the fibres within the screed help protect the floor from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is necessary due to building requirements, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength solution to this situation. The curing 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 restraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard flooring screeds. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, subject to the mix, they're generally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are suitable for projects that have tight deadlines.

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

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are necessary, by a latex and cement mixture. This self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all flooring materials to be laid. These can be as little as 1mm in depth, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.


To make sure the screeding is of a good quality finish that is durable and hard wearing, time must be devoted to preparing the area prior to any screed being poured. The existing floor surfaces should be cleaned to remove any debris, paint, oil and grease which might affect the adhesion of the screed.

Screeding Near Girvan (KA26)

If cleansing products were used it's essential to remove any residues of detergent, soap etc, and allow the surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor any cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" through the screed layer and causing imperfections on the finished floor surface. A site survey will enable the screeding company to pinpoint these preparation areas and complete them before beginning to lay the screeding.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be put down to protect the final flooring and screed from dampness. Different gauges of polythene sheets might be used as a DPM and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.

If your house is situated in an area where radon gas is found an additional barrier layer is needed to stop radon gas from seeping through. This could be just a simple airtight membrane, or in more serious cases an extraction and ventilation system will need to be installed underneath the screed to extract any inflow of radon gas from the ground.

As soon as the floor base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a primer or sealant is then put on. Primers assist with the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the sort of screed being applied. These products need qualified tradesmen to apply them in the correct proportions by using custom-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Under floor heating can now be installed and checked before screeding is poured. The heating pipes and cables are securely mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure they are positioned correctly. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should produce even warmth all over the floor.

Of course, if you're not installing underfloor heating, you can skip this step and apply the floor screed. Your use of the room will assist the screeding specialist on what form of screed is ideal for your requirements. After the pouring of the screed there's a minimum 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a seventy two hour minimum curing time for any floor material installations. 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 long lasting surface.

The SR level of your screed can be confirmed once it has solidified sufficiently to be walked on. Through the use of a 2 metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any dips, ridges and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest quality and allows just 3mm of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5 millimetres or less it is considered SR2 quality and is the normal standard for commercial and industrial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is ten millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is specified as SR3 and is suitable for garage and utility areas.

There might also be a requirement for a structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. The testing will ensure your new screed is suitable for the load bearing requirements set down in the site survey. The screed could be subjected to a "drop hammer test" to measure strength and flexibility at various points. The specialist measurement and testing tools involved mean that this can only be undertaken by a qualified structural engineer following the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Screeding Girvan

When a certain amount of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface you may find that the use of a latex screeding will be an advantage. Typically coming in 2 parts, latex screeds comprise a cementitious powder and a liquid latex component. The latex liquid part replaces the water that would normally be used in a screed mix, and is far more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds.

This latex compound is used for levelling-out sub-floors in advance of the laying of the final decorative surface. This screed is suitable for use on subfloors of wood, asphalt, sand/cement, stone tiles and concrete, to provide a resilient and smooth surface that is ideal for the application of adhesives. If there happens to be a bit of movement in the sub-floor this type of screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish on which you can lay your final floor coverings.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when a screed is being laid over a membrane of either thermal or acoustic insulation, screed thicknesses of 50mm-75mm may be needed, and latex floor screeds aren't suited to this purpose.
