Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the area in question as quickly as possible a fast drying screed can be employed.

Screeding Quotes Lenzie Scotland

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

Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is necessary. Polymer screeds are made by many manufacturers and owing to their diverse chemical compositions have specific setting times for each individual product.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement formula which can achieve the highest standard SR1 finish. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all forms of flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of only 1mm, but still provides a high strength surface to take a varied selection of flooring materials.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The first choice where under floor heating is being installed in residential homes in Lenzie. The increased flex and strength provided by the fibres within the screed help protect the flooring from thermal shrinkage and cracking. It has a setting rate of 1mm per day.


To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time must be spent on fully preparing the area before any screed is laid. The existing floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eliminate any paint, grease, debris and oil which might adversely affect the adhesion of the screed.

Screeding Near Lenzie (G66)

If cleaning products were used it's vital to remove any remnants of detergent, soap etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" through the screed layer and producing imperfections on the final floor surface. A reputable Lenzie screeding contractor will address these issues during the on-site survey and ensure all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next steps in the floor screeding process.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed. There may be 2 or 3 layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

A supplementary airtight barrier may be needed if your home or business premises is in an area which is regarded as susceptible to radon. If radon occurs in severe doses then a full extraction and ventilation system might be needed beneath the layer of screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

The final phase of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealant. A primer helps with the screed to successfully bond to the base and different types exist based upon which kind of screed is being used. Devices such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by certified screeding contractors in Lenzie sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before the screeding is laid, any under floor heating (if required) will now be laid out. Insulation panels will be put in place and the heating pipes and cables will be securely mounted so that there is no movement while the screed is being applied. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should deliver even warmth across the floor area.

Needless to say, if you aren't installing underfloor heating, you simply skip this step and apply the screed. Your proposed use of the room will help your screeding company on which sort of screed is best for your needs. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least twenty four hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 72 hours minimum before you can install any flooring materials. If you are laying standard or heavy duty screeds the setting time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be adhered to so as to get the best finish to your floor.

You can evaluate the SR level of the completed screed once it's set enough for walking on. Through the use of a two metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any deviations, dips and ridges in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire screed area, if there are no disparities of more than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the entire floor surface.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10 millimetres or less the screed quality is classified as SR3 and is suitable for garage and utility areas.

If you require load bearing checks, a structural engineer is necessary to carry out the testing. The testing will ensure your newly laid screeding is suitable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the original site survey. A drop hammer test will be carried out on different areas of the screed and the outcomes noted. Any screed flooring that's got point load requirements must be okayed by a fully qualified structural engineer observing the BS8204 regulations.

Latex Screed Lenzie

When a bit of flexibility is necessary in the surface of a floor you may find that the use of a latex floor screed will be advantageous. Latex floor screed comes in 2 parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cement powder, and the bottle containing a liquid latex mixture. The latex liquid additive takes the place of the water that's used in standard screeds, meaning that it's quicker drying and more flexible.

This latex screed is used to level-out a sub-floor before the final decorative surface is installed. Appropriate for substrate of asphalt, sand/cement, quarry tiles, concrete and wood, this screeding gives the ideal surface for the application of flooring adhesives that is smooth and durable. This type of screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there's a bit of movement in your subfloor.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when a screed is being laid over the top of a layer of acoustic or thermal insulation, screed depths of 50mm-75mm may be required, and latex floor screeds aren't suited to this purpose.
