Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Designed for maximum strength and durability on floors where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor is needed.

Polymer Screeds - These provide an extremely high level of strength with a reduced thickness. The curing times for these vary according to proprietary product guidelines.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is necessary this formula of cement and latex is employed to achieve SR1 quality screed flooring. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all kinds of flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of only 1mm, but will still provide a strong surface for a varied selection of flooring materials.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to use the area in question as quickly as possible a fast drying screed might be a good choice. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, subject to the mixture, they're usually a fibre reinforced screed and are perfect for projects which have tight deadlines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional screeders for use in combination with underfloor heating systems. The fibres in the screed mix enhance it's strength and durability whilst also protecting against thermal cracking and shrinkage. The screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm/day.


Good preparation is vital for a top quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The existing floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eliminate any oil, grease, paint and debris which might adversely affect the bond of the screed.

Any cleaning chemicals used in this process shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be allowed to dry out naturally. It's vital to repair any cracks in the floor surface to avoid them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into the newly screeded floor. An experienced Hythe screeding specialist will pick up on such problems during a site survey and make certain that all preparations are finished before pressing on with the next steps in the floor screeding process.

To protect the flooring materials and screeding layer from dampness rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene might be used as a damp proof membrane and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation material.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon gas then an additional barrier is required to prevent the gas from entering via the ground. If radon occurs in large amounts then a full ventilation and extraction system may be installed beneath the screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from ground level.

The final phase of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a sealer or primer. Primers and sealers help the bonding process and are specialist applications specifically designed for the type of screed that is being applied. These materials require qualified tradesmen to apply them in the right proportions by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.

If you are going to be installing underfloor heating, now is the time that it will need to be laid out and installed. Insulation panels will be laid out and the wires and heating pipes will be securely attached to prevent any movement while the screed is poured. When expertly installed an under floor heating system is an excellent way to warm up a room and top quality screeding will retain its heat, producing an even heat across the floor.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared in situ and applied to the base surface. Your intended use of the room will help your screeding company on what kind of screed is perfect for your requirements. Remember that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk over any laid surface and a minimum 3 days before any floor coverings can be applied. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds must be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even floor surface.

The SR standard of your screed can be verified once it's hardened sufficiently to be stepped onto. The basic SR test involves the use of a two metre straight edge to check for any fluctuations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3mm or less being measured over the entire floor area shows your screed to be of the best quality and specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the entire floor surface.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is comparatively unimportant the SR3 is the standard and should have a deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

It might also be necessary for a structural engineer to perform a soundness test. This assessment will establish the strength of the screeding and its viability for the proposed use. The screed could be given a "drop hammer test" to gauge strength and flexibility in specific areas. Only trained structural engineers following the British Standards BS8204 regulations are allowed to conduct these testing and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.
