Standard Screeds - This is ideal for standard domestic use and is a mix of cement and sand. This mixture uses a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. After being laid a standard screed sets at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries rapidly and allows you to use the floor area much faster. These are normally a fibre reinforced type of screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are employed in time critical flooring projects.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex formula. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate 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 a high strength finish.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is needed. The curing times vary in accordance with product guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional installers for use with underfloor heating systems. The improved flex and strength provided by the special fibres within the screed help protect the resulting floor from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. It sets at an identical rate to a standard screed, at about 1mm per day.

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

Screeding installers will have to fully prepare all areas before any other work so as to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. The original floor surfaces should be cleaned to eradicate any paint, grease, oil and debris which might affect the adhesion of the screed.

If any cleaning products are used in this process it's important to make certain that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. It's necessary to mend any cracks or crevices in the base to stop them being visible and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. During an on-site survey the screeding installer will ascertain what preparations are required before starting to work on the actual screeding.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed after the preparation work has been completed to prevent ground moisture affecting the flooring materials and screeding. The DPM is made out of thick polythene sheeting and various layers might be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon gas then another barrier is required to stop this harmful gas from entering via the ground. An air-tight membrane could be sufficient in areas with relatively low emissions of radon, but in more severe cases there may have to be a more complex extraction system to block any harmful radon gases.

Once the floor base has been properly prepared and any DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then applied. A primer helps with the screed bonding process to the base and different varieties exist based on which screed type is being applied. These substances need skilled technicians to apply them in the correct proportions by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.

This is the time that underfloor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and firmly secured to insulation panels to stop any movement during screed installation process. When skillfully installed an underfloor heating system is an excellent way to warm up a room and good quality screed retains its heat, generating an even heat across the floor.

If you are not installing under floor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. Your screeding company will have given you advice and guidance on which type of screed is suitable for your needs, according to your proposed use of the room. Be aware that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk on any screeded surface and a minimum seventy two hours before any flooring can be fitted. If you are looking to end up with a well finished and hard-wearing floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to heavy duty and standard screeds where the time period will be longer.

The SR level of your screeding can be confirmed once it's solidified enough to be walked on. Using a 2m straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any ridges, deviations and dips in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of three millimetres or less as measured over the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the finest quality and classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the whole screeded surface.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is categorised as SR3 and is the standard required for garage and utility areas.

If you need load bearing checks, a structural engineer is required to perform the testing. The testing will ensure your new screed surface is suitable for the load bearing requirements specified in the original site survey. This will include what's known as a drop hammer test which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only experienced structural engineers heeding the British Standards BS8204 regulations are permitted to perform such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of the screeding.
