Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is required this blend of latex and cement is used to achieve SR1 level screed flooring. Typically used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like tiling on the top of it.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Designed for maximum durability and strength on floors where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor base is required.


Good preparation is essential for a top quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. It's vital that any contaminants such as grease, oil, loose debris or paint is eliminated from the floor surface before pouring any screed, as these can affect the adhesion capability that a good quality screed needs.

Any cleansing chemicals that are used during this process shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and producing deviations on the final floor surface. An on-site survey will enable the screeding installer to pinpoint these preparation areas and complete them before starting to pour the screeding layer.

To protect the flooring materials and screed layer from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed. Different gauges of special polythene may be used as a DPM and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation material.

If your property is situated in a place where radon gas is found an extra barrier layer is required to prevent radon gas from seeping through. This can be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in more serious instances an extraction and ventilation system is installed underneath the screeding to take away any influx of radon gas from ground level.

The final step of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a sealer or primer. A primer assists in the screed bonding correctly to the base and membranes and different varieties exist according to which kind of screed is being applied. Because of their specialist nature, only experienced screeding specialists in Locks Heath are capable of using them correctly, safely and through the use of bespoke equipment for this task.

Under floor heating can now be installed and tested before screeding is applied. The cabling and heating pipes are securely attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement and make sure that they are positioned correctly. Warmth is spread evenly across a floor area in a skillfully installed under floor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient choice of heating, it is an ideal choice for most Locks Heath home restoration projects.

If you aren't fitting underfloor heating the screed can now be prepared in situ and poured. The particular requirements of the room will determine the kind of screeding used. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least a twenty four hour delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further 3 days minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for heavy duty and standard screeds should be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even surface.

The SR level of your screed can be ascertained once it has set sufficiently to be walked upon. The basic SR test uses a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less being measured over the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and is specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screeded surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5 millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the normal standard for commercial and industrial projects.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the finish is fairly unimportant SR3 is the standard and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to carry out the tests. The testing will make sure that your newly laid screed surface is viable for the load bearing requirements specified in the original site survey. This can include a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. The specialist measurement and testing tools mean that this can only be performed by a competent structural engineer following the BS8204 guidelines.

Granolithic Screeding

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

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

The granolithic screeding process involves several steps, including preparing the concrete base, blending of the screed mixture, laying of the mixture, and curing of the screed. Correct mixing, curing and application methods are vital to ensure the strength and durability of the final surface. Moreover, the screed should be allowed to fully cure before any flooring materials are laid over it.... READ MORE.
