British Standards BS8204 lays out the regulations and guidelines that all Holland-on-Sea screeding installers must follow, and if working with specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc), they should be approved by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. This accreditation scheme highlights a firm's training and performance in the application of a manufacturer's merchandise.

Holland-on-Sea commercial screeders could be involved in floor screeding in hospitals, shopping centres, pubs, schools, factories and warehouses.


Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic flooring projects where the mixture of sand and cement is good for regular floor traffic use. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the usual mix for standard screeds. The standard flooring screed dries at a rate of one millimetre thickness per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to press ahead urgently with the flooring on account of time limitations, these screeds dry more speedily than standard screeds. They are typically a fibre reinforced type of screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are employed in time-sensitive projects.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Manufacturer's guidelines for drying times are different across the product ranges.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with underfloor heating systems and is the advised choice in such projects. The special fibres in the screed mix increase it's strength and durability whilst also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It sets at an identical rate to a standard screed, at about one millimetre per day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are necessary, by a cement and latex solution. Primarily used to improve a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, such as tiling on the top of it. Even with a thickness of 1mm, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.


Screeding installers will need to prepare all areas prior to any other work so as to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The original floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any grease, debris, paint and oil that might affect the adhesion of the screeding.

Screeding Near Holland-on-Sea (CO15)

If cleansing products were used it is crucial to remove any traces of detergent or soap, and allow the surface to dry naturally. It is vital to fix any crevices or cracks in the surface to prevent them being mirrored and "travelling" up into the newly screeded floor. An on-site survey will enable the screeding installer to take note of this preparation work and complete it before beginning to pour the screeding.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be put down once the preparation work has been done to stop ground moisture affecting the screed and floor materials. The DPM is made out of thick polythene and various layers could be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

If your property is located in a place where radon gas is found an additional barrier layer is needed to prevent radon gas from seeping through. If radon gas occurs in large amounts then a full ventilation system might be needed underneath the screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from the ground.

As soon as the base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealer or primer is then put on. A primer helps with the screed bonding correctly to the base surface and different varieties exist according to which type of screed is being applied. Because of their specialist nature, only certified screeders in Holland-on-Sea should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and using bespoke equipment for the task.

Before the screeding can be poured, any under floor heating will now set out and installed. Insulation panels can be put in place and the heating pipes and wires will be securely fastened to prevent any movement whilst the screed is applied. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should produce even warmth across the floor area.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared on site and spread onto the base surface. The particular requirements of the room will determine the kind of screeding used. Don't forget that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you're able to walk on any laid surfaces and at least seventy two hours before any floor coverings can be laid. If you are laying standard or heavy duty screeds the setting time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed in order to get the best finish for your floor.

The SR level of your screeding can be ascertained once it has solidified sufficiently to be walked upon. The test involves using a 2 metre straight edge laid on the floor surface and any variations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest level and permits just 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the whole screeded surface.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is fairly unimportant SR3 is the classification and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

It may also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to perform a soundness test. The assessment will make sure that your new screed surface is suitable for the load point requirements set down in the original site survey. This can include a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. The specialist measurement and testing tools needed mean that this can only be carried out by a qualified structural engineer respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Granolithic Screeding

Granolithic screeding is an extremely popular flooring material that is commonly used in heavy-duty environments because of its strength and durability. It's made from a mixture of sand, aggregate, cement, and sometimes pigments, which are combined to form a mortar-like mixture. The mixture is poured onto the floor and then smoothed out to an even, level surface.

The resulting flooring is slip-resistant, hard-wearing and easy to clean, making it ideal for use in areas with high foot traffic, such as factories, schools and shopping centres.

Granolithic screeding is typically applied over a concrete sub-base, and the surface is often treated with a curing compound to ensure it sets correctly. Once cured, it creates a seamless floor with a hard, smooth surface that is resistant to wear and tear. It's also highly resistant to chemicals and water, which makes it suitable for use in environments where there's a risk of spills or exposure to harmful materials.... READ MORE.
