The screeding specialist will also inform you if a structural engineer is required for your project, to check on point loadings, load bearing and flex strength that your flooring might require to conform with current British Standards and building regulations.

A qualified and skilled work force is essential to a successful result and will extend the life of your floor by using the right form of screed for your room's allocated purpose. There are numerous kinds of screed and picking the correct mix and installation approach is critical if you are to create a quality floor that's hard-wearing and fit for purpose.

Before deciding upon a screeding company from the many based in the Maltby area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quotation, and also ensure that you get two or three estimates. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the figure to keep your eye on when studying an estimate from your Maltby screeding contractor. SR1 is the best quality, and while SR2 and SR3 might seem less costly at first glance, they do not guarantee a totally flat or even floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 level may mean there will be ridges or flat spots that could cause issues when laying your final flooring materials.

Standard Screeds - A mix of cement and sand which is acceptable for basic domestic usage. Five parts sand to one part cement is the normal mixture for standard flooring screeds. Once laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed can be utilised. The majority of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are ideal for a wide range of projects where the quicker drying rate of 3-7mm/day is a welcome advantage.

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

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

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Polymer screeds are available from a number of screed manufacturers and on account of their varying chemical compositions have specific setting times for each product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional screeders for use with underfloor heating systems. The increased flex and strength provided by the special fibres in this screed mix help protect the flooring from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. It's got a drying rate of 1mm per day.


Screeding companies will need to carefully prepare all areas prior to any other work so as to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. Any oil, grease, debris and paint on the original floor level can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be removed.

If any cleaning products were used in this process it's vital to ensure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" through your screed layer and resulting in deviations on the final surface. A competent Maltby screeding contractor will address these aspects during a on-site survey and make sure all preparations are completed before applying the next steps in the screeding process.

To shield the screed layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed. The damp proof membrane is made from thick polythene and different layers might be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

If your home is located in an area where radon is present an extra barrier layer is necessary to stop radon gas from entering. This can be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in more serious cases an extraction and ventilation system will be installed under the screed to take away any inflow of air and gas from the ground.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealer. A primer assists in the screed bonding process to the base and different types exist according to which screed type is being used. These substances require skilled contractors to apply them in the correct proportions by using custom-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Before the screeding can be laid, any underfloor heating will now be laid out. Insulation panels will be laid out and the heating pipes and cables will be securely mounted to prevent any movement whilst the screed is poured. When properly installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm up a room and high quality screed retains its heat, generating an even level of warmth right across the floor.

If you are not fitting underfloor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and laid. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the form of screeding that is used. After application of the screed there is a minimum 24 hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you are able to walk over the surface, and a seventy two hour minimum curing period for the laying of any flooring materials. If you are laying heavy duty or standard screeds the curing time is increased and you must observe the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best possible finish to your floor.

You can test the SR level of the finished screed once it's solidified enough to walk on. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3mm or less as measured across the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the highest quality and is classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the entire screeded surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a quality finish isn't necessary. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation of 10 millimetres.

It may also be necessary for a structural engineer to do a soundness test. The assessment will make certain that your newly laid screeded surface is viable for the load bearing requirements specified in the site survey. This can include a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. Only experienced structural engineers heeding the BS8204 guidelines are permitted to conduct such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.

Latex Screed Maltby

It may be an advantage to use a latex self-levelling screeding when a degree of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor. Latex floor screeds typically comprise two parts - a cementitious powder and a liquid latex mixture. The latex liquid additive actually replaces the water that would normally be used in a screed mix, and is quicker drying and more flexible than standard screeds.

This latex product is used for levelling subfloors prior to the installation of your chosen decorative surface. Producing a resilient and smooth surface that is perfect for the application of flooring adhesives, this screeding is is suitable for use on substrate of wood, concrete, asphalt, sand/cement and stone tiles. If your subfloor has a bit of movement in it, this type of latex floor screed will provide a flexible, crack-free finish, on which your chosen floor coverings can be laid.

Latex floor screeds are not suitable where "floating" screeds are needed, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, such as might be the case when you are screeding on top of underfloor heating, and screed depths of 50-65mm may be necessary.
