All Jarrow screeding contractors must follow British Standards (BS8204) and should have some kind of accreditation from the manufacturers of specialised screeding equipment and materials, e.g. Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor. This accreditation scheme demonstrates a firm's high quality performance and training in the usage of a manufacturer's products.

For larger floor screeding projects in schools, pubs, warehouses, hospitals, shops and factories, skilled Jarrow commercial screeders will be needed.


Standard Screeds - Widely used in domestic flooring projects where the combination of cement and sand is perfectly acceptable for regular footfall use. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of 1mm each day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this compound of latex and cement is employed to create SR1 level screeding. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all kinds of flooring materials to be laid. These can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a minimal thickness. Polymer screeds are made by many screed manufacturers and due to their different chemical compositions have specific curing times for each individual product.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to use the floor as soon as possible a fast drying screed might be a good choice. These are usually a fibre reinforced kind of screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are used in time critical projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use on top of under floor heating. This is due to the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the special fibres within the screed mix. At roughly 1mm per day, it has a similar setting rate to standard screed.

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

Preparation is essential for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. Any grease, paint, debris and oil on the existing floor level can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and must be eliminated.

Screeding Near Jarrow (NE32)

If any products are used in this process it's crucial to make certain that no residues of soaps or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. It is essential to mend any crevices or cracks in the base to avoid them being visible and "travelling" up into the freshly screeded floor. An on-site survey will enable the screeding installer to highlight these preparation areas and finish them before commencing to lay the screeding.

To shield the flooring materials and screed layer from moisture rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be laid. There may be two or three layers of different thickness polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon gas then another barrier is necessary to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. An airtight membrane could be sufficient in locations with relatively low radon measurements, however in more serious situations there may have to be a more sophisticated extraction and ventilation system to take away any ground penetrating radon gases.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeders will put on a primer or sealer to the prepared floor base. These primers and sealers will ensure the screed bonds properly to the base and help create a high quality finished floor. Owing to their special nature, only professional screeding specialists in Jarrow should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and using equipment that's made for this task.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before screeding is poured. The heating pipes and cables are firmly attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure that they're laid in the correct position. Warmth will be evenly spread across a floor area in an expertly fitted underfloor heating system, and coupled with it being an effective method of heating, it's a great choice for the majority of Jarrow home restoration projects.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared on site and applied to the floor base. Your use of the room will assist the screeding company on what type of screed is perfect for your requirements. For quick drying screeds there will be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before you can lay any flooring materials. If you are using 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.

You can check the SR level of the finished screeding once it's hardened enough to walk on. Through the use of a 2 mtr straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any deviations, dips and ridges in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3mm or less as measured over the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and is classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is classed as SR3 and is suitable for utility and garage areas.

It may also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to perform a soundness test. This test will determine the strength of the screed surface and the viability for its intended use. This will include what is known as a drop hammer test which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Any screeding that has load bearing requirements must be approved by a fully qualified structural engineer observing the BS8204 regulations.

Latex Floor Screeds Jarrow

When the make-up of your floor's surface means that a certain degree of flexibility is needed, it may be best to use a latex self-levelling screeding, rather than one with a more rigid finish. Latex screeds come in 2 parts - a bottle and a bag - with the bottle containing latex liquid and the bag containing a cemetitious powder. Whereby water is normally used in a screed mix, this is replaced with the latex liquid, which makes it quicker drying and more flexible than other standard screeds.

Used in the levelling of subfloors, this latex product creates a suitable surface for the installation of the final floor finish. Giving a smooth and durable surface that is perfect for the application of flooring adhesives, this screed is is appropriate for use on substrate of concrete, wood, sand/cement, stone tiles and asphalt. Even where there is a bit of movement on your sub-floor, this latex screeding will produce a flexible, crack-free finish.

When using a "floating" screed, i.e. when a screed is being laid over a membrane of either thermal or acoustic insulation, screed depths of 50 to 65 millimetres may be necessary, and latex flooring screeds are not appropriate for this purpose.
