The regulations set out in in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by any Maltby floor screeding contractor and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc.) to verify their competence and safe working practices. The training and testing of a floor screeding company by such manufacturers is underlined through the accreditation scheme, and guarantees reliability and safe working practices on any flooring project which involves their materials.

Maltby commercial screeders may be involved in the screeding of floors in schools, hospitals, boutiques, warehouses, factories and shops.


Standard Screeds - Widely used in domestic projects where the mix of sand and cement is acceptable for normal floor traffic usage. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness each day.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced thickness is necessary. Because of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying drying times which can be verified by studying manufacturer's product guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use on top of underfloor heating. The special fibres in this screed mix increase overall strength and durability whilst also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It has a setting rate of one millimetre per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries at a quicker rate and allows you to use the screeded area much sooner. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm/day, depending on the mixture, they are typically a fibre reinforced screed and are ideal for flooring projects that have tight schedules.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are high or heavy loading of the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds deliver maximum strength and durability.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement compound. It's largely needed to produce a high quality floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. The liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of just one millimetre, but still provides a strong surface to take a wide variety of flooring finishes.


Screeding companies will need to fully prepare all areas before proceeding with any other work so as to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. The existing floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eradicate any oil, paint, debris and grease which might adversely affect the bond of the screed.

Screeding Near Maltby (S66)

If cleaning products have been used it's essential to remove any remnants of detergent or soap, and allow the surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor any cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the finished floor surface. During an on-site survey your Maltby screeding specialist will establish what preparation work is needed before starting to work on the screeding.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down after the preparation work has been done to prevent ground moisture affecting the flooring materials and screed. There may be two or three layers of varying thickness polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

A supplementary air-tight barrier may be necessary if your home or business premises is in a location that is regarded as prone to radon gas emissions. This could be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in more serious situations a ventilation and extraction system is installed under the screed to take away any inflow of radon gas from ground level.

Once these steps have been taken the screeding company will put on a primer or sealer to the prepared base surface. A primer helps with the screed to bond successfully to the base surface and different types exist based upon which kind of screed is being applied. Owing to their specialist nature, only experienced screeding contractors in Maltby are capable of using them correctly, safely and through the use of equipment which is made for the task.

Under floor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before screeding is poured. The heating pipes and cabling are securely attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure they are laid in the correct position. Warmth will be spread evenly across a floor area in an expertly fitted under floor heating system, and with it being an effective choice of heating, it is an ideal choice for most Maltby home renovation projects.

If you aren't putting in underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared in situ and laid. Your intended use of the room will help your screeding company on what sort of floor screed is right for your needs. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked over, and a further Three days minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. If you're using standard or heavy duty screeds the curing time is longer and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed so as to get the best finish to your floor.

The SR level of your screeding can be checked once it has hardened sufficiently to be stepped onto. The test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge laid on the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest specification and permits just three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5mm or less it is SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial floors.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect quality finish is not required. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10 millimetres.

If your screed has been installed with specific loading in mind then a structural engineer will be required to conduct the assessment. This assessment will ascertain the overall strength of the screed and the viability for its intended use. The screed layer could be subjected to what's known as a drop hammer test to measure flexibility and strength in various areas. Any screeding that has load bearing requirements must be sanctioned by a certified structural engineer applying the British Standards BS8204 regulations.

Latex Screeds Maltby

It is best to use a latex screeding when a bit of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor. Latex screeds normally comprise 2 parts - a cement-based smoothing compound, and a liquid latex component. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the latex liquid, making it more flexible than other types of screed, and quicker drying.

This latex screed product is used to level-out a sub-floor before the final decorative surface is installed. Giving a durable, smooth surface that is perfect for the application of adhesives, this is is suitable for use on subfloors of wood, asphalt, stone tiles, sand/cement and concrete. Even where there happens to be movement in your sub-floor, this type of floor screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when a screed is being laid on the top of a layer of acoustic or thermal insulation, screed depths of 50 to 75 millimetres may be required, and latex screeds aren't appropriate for this purpose.
