Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are required, by a cement and latex formula. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all flooring materials to be laid. These can be as little as one millimetre thick, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Owing to their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying setting times which you can verify by studying manufacturer's product guidelines.

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


To make sure the screeding is of a high quality finish that is durable and hard wearing, time should be devoted to preparing the area before any screeding material is poured. It is important that all contaminants such as grease, debris, paint or oil is removed from the floor before pouring any screed, as these can affect the bonding process that a good quality screed demands.

Screeding Near Hornchurch (RM11)

If cleansing products have been used it is essential to remove any remnants of soap, detergent etc, and allow the surface to dry naturally. It's vital to mend any cracks in the surface to prevent them being mirrored and "travelling" up into the freshly screeded floor. During a site survey the screeding specialist will establish what preparations are necessary before any actual screeding commences.

Before any screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be put down to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture damage. There could be 2 or 3 layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

A further air-tight barrier may be needed if your house is in an area which is regarded as prone to radon. If radon gas is present in severe doses then a full ventilation system might be needed beneath the screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from the ground.

The final phase of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealer. These sealers and primers will make certain the screed bonds effectively to the base surface and help achieve a high quality finished floor. Owing to their special nature, only certified screeding contractors in Hornchurch should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and through the use of bespoke equipment for the task.

Before any screed is poured, any underfloor heating will now be laid out. The heating pipes and cables are securely mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure they are laid in the correct position. When expertly installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and top quality screed will retain its heat, generating an even level of warmth right across the floor surface.

If you are not fitting under floor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and laid. Your use of the room will assist your screeding company on which sort of screed is right for your needs. For quick drying screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it can be walked on, and a further 72 hours minimum before you can lay any flooring materials. This time period is longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to achieve the best finish and longevity of the floor.

Once the screeding has solidified it can be checked for quality to establish its SR standard. The test involves the use of a 2 metre long straight-edge laid down upon the surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3mm or less as measured across the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5 millimetres across the entire screeded floor.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10 millimetres or less the screed quality is classified as SR3 and is the standard required for garage and utility areas.

If your screed floor has been laid with particular loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be required to carry out these soundness tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will assess the screed surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. A "drop hammer test" will be carried out at various areas on the screed layer and the results recorded. Only qualified structural engineers respecting the British Standards BS8204 regulations are permitted to carry out these testing and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.

Latex Screeding Hornchurch

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a bit of flexibility is necessary, it will be best to use a latex floor screed, rather than one with an unyielding finish. Latex screeds usually comprise 2 parts - a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex mixture. Whereby water is normally used in a screed mix, this is replaced with the latex liquid, meaning it's quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

This latex compound is used for levelling-out subfloors prior to the installation of your chosen decorative surface. This screed is appropriate for substrate made of stone tiles, wood, sand/cement, concrete or asphalt, is ideal for the application of adhesives and gives a smooth, resilient surface. If there is a bit of movement in the sub-floor this type of latex screeding will give you a crack-free, flexible finish on which to lay your chosen floor coverings.

When using a "floating" screed, i.e. when a screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, thicknesses of 50 to 75 millimetres may be required, and latex screeds are not suitable for this purpose.
