Standard Screeds - Used in domestic flooring projects where the mixture of cement and sand is good for standard footfall use. Five parts sand to one part cement is the normal mixture for standard screeds. The standard flooring screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is required this compound of cement and latex is used to produce SR1 level floor screeding. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all sorts of flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be poured to a depth of only one millimetre, but will still provide a high strength base for a selection of flooring finishes.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is needed. Polymer screeds are available from many manufacturers and due to their different chemical compositions have specific curing times for each individual product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use over the top of underfloor heating. The improved strength and flexibility provided by the special fibres within the screed mix help protect the floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. At about one millimetre per day, it has the same curing rate to standard floor screed.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area as quickly as possible a fast drying screed can be employed. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm, subject to the specialised mix, they are generally a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are perfect for projects that have tight deadlines.

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


Screeding installers will need to carefully prepare the area before any other work in order to guarantee a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. Any grease, oil, debris and paint on the existing floor level can affect the bonding of the screed, and must be eradicated.

Any cleaning products that are used in this phase shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. At this point cracks should be repaired as these can easily travel up through a laid screed and be reflected in the completed surface. A professional Holsworthy screeding company will pick up on these problems during a site survey and ensure that all preparations are completed before applying the next steps in the screeding process.

Before any screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed to shield the screed and final flooring from dampness. Different gauges of polythene sheets may be used as a DPM and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon gas then one additional barrier is necessary to prevent this harmful gas from entering from the ground. This could be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in more serious instances a ventilation system will need to be installed under the floor screed to draw out any inflow of radon gas from the ground.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeders will apply a primer or sealant to the prepared floor base. Sealers and primers assist with the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the sort of screed being used. Due to their special nature, only experienced screeding specialists in Holsworthy should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and using equipment which is made for the task.

Before any screed can be poured, any underfloor heating will now be laid out. Insulation panels will be laid out and the wires and heating pipes will be firmly attached to prevent any movement whilst the screed is poured. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system will provide even warmth across the floor area.

Naturally, if you're not fitting under floor heating, you can bypass this step and apply the screeding. Your use of the room will help the screeding specialist on which form of screed is best for your needs. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before you can install any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds should be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with an even and stable surface.

You can check the SR level of the finished screed as soon as it is set enough to walk on. The standard SR test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the screeded surface.

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

If your screed has been installed with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer will be required to perform tests. Using specialist equipment the engineer will verify the screed surface strength and suitability of use in a load bearing setting. This should include a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only certified structural engineers following the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to carry out such tests and sign off on the structural safety of screed flooring.

Granolithic Screeding Holsworthy

Granolithic screeding is a type of floor finishing technique used to provide a smooth and level surface for carpets, floor tiles or other flooring products. It is a mixture of cement, sand, and aggregate (for instance granite or marble chips) that is applied over a concrete base. The mixture is spread evenly over the surface and levelled using a straightedge to produce a smooth and hard-wearing finish that's durable and long-lasting.

This technique is frequently used in commercial and industrial buildings, high-traffic residential areas, and spaces that require chemical and abrasion resistance. The resulting surface is easy to clean, durable, and provides the ideal base for other flooring materials.

Granolithic screeding is typically applied over a concrete sub-base, and the surface is normally treated with a curing compound to make sure it sets properly. Once cured, it creates a seamless floor with a hard, smooth surface that is resistant to wear. It is also resistant to chemicals and water, which makes it perfect for use in environments where there is a risk of spills or exposure to dangerous materials.
