Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential projects where the combination of sand and cement is okay for basic floor traffic use. This mix comprises a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. After being laid a standard flooring screed dries out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to use the floor as soon as possible a fast drying screed may be used. The majority of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are appropriate for a whole host of projects where the speedier curing rate of 3-7mm/day is a considerable advantage.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option where under floor heating is being installed in domestic properties in Hedge End. This is due to the improved strength and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking offered by the special fibres within the screed mix. It has a setting rate of one millimetre per day.

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

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is required due to construction factors, a polymer screed offers a high strength solution to the situation. The curing times vary according to product guidelines.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is needed this compound of latex and cement is used to produce SR1 level floor screeding. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all flooring materials to be laid. These can be as little as 1mm thick, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.


Good preparation is essential for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. It's important that any contaminants such as paint, oil, loose debris or grease is eliminated from the floor before laying any screed, since these can affect the bonding capability that a quality floor screed requires.

If cleaning products were used it's crucial to remove any remnants of soap etc, and leave the surface to dry naturally. It's necessary to fix any cracks in the surface to prevent them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. A site survey will allow the screeding installer to pinpoint these preparation areas and complete them before commencing to pour the screeding layer.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be applied after the preparation work has been done to prevent ground dampness getting into the screed and floor materials. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene might be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation material.

If your property is situated in a place where radon is present a supplementary barrier layer is necessary to prevent radon gas from getting through. A simple airtight membrane may be suitable in locations with relatively low emissions of radon, but in more extreme situations there may need to be a more complex extraction system to block any ground penetrating radon gases.

Once the floor base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealant or primer is then applied. A primer helps with the screed to bond to the base and membranes and different types exist based on which kind of screed is being applied. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by qualified screeding contractors in Hedge End sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

This is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct manner. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and attached firmly to insulation panels to avoid any movement during screed pouring. When professionally installed an under floor heating system is an excellent way to warm a room and high quality screeding will retain its heat, producing an even heat across the floor surface.

The screed can now be prepared in situ and poured onto the floor base. The requirements of the room will determine the form of screeding that is used. Bear in mind that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you are able to walk over any screeded surfaces and a minimum three days before any flooring materials can be laid. If you are laying heavy duty or standard screeds the drying time is increased and you must observe the manufacturer's guidelines so as to get the best finish to your floor.

You can assess the SR level of the completed screed once it's hardened enough to walk on. Using a 2 mtr straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any dips, ridges and deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any disparities greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you have a top level SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - If the screeded surface deviates from the straight edge by 5mm or less it is considered SR2 quality and is the standard for commercial and industrial floors.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is classed as SR3 and is fine for garage and utility areas.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is required to conduct the tests. The assessment will ensure your newly laid screed surface is suitable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the site survey. The screed will be given a "drop hammer test" to gauge strength and flexibility at distinct points. Any screed floor that has point load requirements must be okayed by a certified structural engineer obeying the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeds Hedge End

When the surface of a floor needs a certain degree of flexibility, it is best to use a latex self-levelling screed. Latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cement based smoothing compound, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex mixture. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed, since the water that is normally used is exchanged for the liquid latex.

This latex screed product is used to level-out a subfloor before the final decorative surface is installed. This is appropriate for use on substrate of asphalt, stone tiles, sand/cement, wood and concrete, to provide a resilient, smooth surface that is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives. Even if there's a bit of movement on your subfloor, this type of latex screeding will give you a crack-free, flexible finish.

When installing a "floating" screed, i.e. when a screed is being laid over the top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, thicknesses of 50-75mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds aren't appropriate for this purpose.
