They'll also assess if a structural engineer is necessary to make certain any flex strength, point loadings and load bearing are followed as laid down in construction and building regulations.

Working with a skilled and qualified specialist will guarantee that you get the appropriate form of screed for the room's intended purpose to extend the lifespan of your flooring. A correct blend of screed and the techniques used in laying it are also vital to guarantee the final durability of your floor.

Before deciding on a screeding specialist from those based in the Hemsworth area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their price quote, and also make sure that you get two or three quotations. For residential properties a quotation will usually be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) level of SR1 or SR2. Each of the three SR levels offer different standards of finish, with SR1 being the highest, with the least amount of deviation over the surface area. An SR2 or SR3 standard could mean there are flat spots or ridges that may cause problems when putting down your final flooring surface (carpet, wood, tile etc).

Standard Screeds - A combination of sand and cement which is okay for everyday residential usage. 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 just 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a minimal thickness. Polymer screeds are available from a number of manufacturers and because of their different chemical compositions have distinct curing times for each product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with underfloor heating and is the favoured option in such projects. The increased flex and strength offered by the special fibres in this screed help protect the flooring from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. It sets at the same rate as a standard screed, at about one millimetre per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed can be used. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, depending on the specialised mix, they are typically a fibre reinforced screed and are perfect for projects which have tight schedules.

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

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is needed this compound of cement and latex is employed to achieve SR1 level screeding. Mainly used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, such as tiles on top of it. These can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.


Preparation is vital for a quality finished screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. The original floor surface should be cleaned to eliminate any oil, paint, debris and grease which might affect the adhesion of the screed.

If any products were used during this stage it is vital to ensure that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. It is vital to repair any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to stop them being mirrored and "travelling" up into the newly screeded floor. A skilled Hemsworth screeding company will pick up on these aspects during the on-site survey and ensure that all preparations are completed before applying the next stages of the screeding process.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be put down once the preparation work has been concluded to prevent ground dampness getting into the screed and floor materials. The damp proof membrane is made out of thick polythene sheet and different layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

If the area is at risk from radon then one additional barrier is needed to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. This can be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in severe instances a ventilation system will need to be installed underneath the screed to take away any inflow of radon gas from ground level.

The final phase of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a sealer or primer. Sealers and primers assist with the bonding process and are specialist applications specifically designed for the kind of screed that's being applied. These materials require trained technicians to apply them in the right ratios by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.

Now is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct manner. The underfloor heating system will be carefully positioned and secured firmly to insulation panels to avoid potential 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 professionally installed system will provide even warmth all over the floor.

Naturally, if you're not fitting underfloor heating, you simply ignore this step and get on with applying the screed. Your use of the room will help the screeding company on what type of screed is appropriate for your requirements. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least twenty four hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. If you are laying standard or heavy duty screeds the curing time is longer and the manufacturer's guidelines must be adhered to in order to get the best possible finish to your floor.

Once the screeding has solidified it can be quality checked to determine its SR standard. The standard SR test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any disparities of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the finish is fairly unimportant SR3 is the standard and has a deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is needed to conduct the testing. The assessment will make certain that your new screed is suitable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the site survey. This can include what's known as a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. The specialist testing and measurement tools mean that this can only be performed by a qualified structural engineer following the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Screed Hemsworth

When a floor's surface needs a level of flexibility, it may be wise to use a latex floor screed. Normally 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's used in standard screeds, meaning that it's more flexible and quicker drying.

This latex screed product is used to level a sub-floor prior to the final decorative surface being installed. This is appropriate for substrate made from quarry tiles, asphalt, concrete, wood or sand/cement, is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a smooth, resilient surface. If there happens to be a bit of movement in the sub-floor this type of floor screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish on which you can lay your chosen floor coverings.

Latex flooring screeds are not appropriate where a "floating" screed is required, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid on top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, such as could be the case when you are screeding on top of underfloor heating, and thicknesses of 50 to 75 millimetres may be necessary.
