Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is required this formula of cement and latex is used to achieve SR1 quality screed flooring. It's largely used to produce a high quality floor over the top of a poor quality or damaged substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. They can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.


To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish which is hard wearing and durable, time should be devoted to preparing the area before any screed is laid. It is vital that any contaminants such as paint, grease, loose debris or oil is eradicated from the floor surface before laying any screed, since these can affect the bonding process that a quality floor screed requires.

Screeding Near Marchwood (SO40)

If cleaning products have been used it's important to remove any residues of soap, detergent etc, and allow the 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 resulting in deviations on the finished floor surface. A site survey will allow your Marchwood screeding company to pinpoint this preparation work and finish it before commencing to lay the screeding.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed to protect the screed and final flooring from moisture. There might be two or three layers of varying thickness polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

If your house is located in a place where radon is found an extra barrier layer is needed to prevent radon gas from getting through. If radon gas occurs in large amounts then a complete ventilation system may be installed beneath the layer of screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

Once these stages have been completed the screeding company will apply a sealer or primer to the prepared base. Primers help with the bonding process and are specialist applications matched to the sort of screed being applied. Due to their specialist nature, only professional screeding contractors in Marchwood should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and using bespoke equipment for the task.

Before the screeding is laid, any underfloor heating will now set out and installed. Insulation panels will be laid out and the wires and heating pipes will be securely attached so there's no movement while the screed is being poured. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system will deliver even level of warmth across the floor area.

If you're not putting in underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared in situ and laid. The particular requirements of the room will determine the kind of screeding that's used. Remember that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk on any screeded surface and a minimum seventy two hours before any flooring can be laid. If you are hoping to wind up with a nicely finished and durable floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where this waiting period will be increased.

You can test the SR level of the completed screeding as soon as it is hard enough for walking on. Through the use of a 2 mtr straight-edge the surface is examined for any dips, ridges and deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole screed area, if there aren't any disparities of more than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a quality finish is not needed. This level allows for a maximium deviation depth of 10 millimetres.

It may also be necessary for a structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. This test will establish the strength of the screed and the viability for its proposed use. This should include what is known as a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. The specialist testing and measurement tools mean this can only be performed by a competent structural engineer following the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeds Marchwood

It may be an advantage to use a latex screed when a degree of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface. Latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cement powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex mixture. The liquid latex part replaces the water that's used in normal screeds, making it more flexible and quicker drying.

Before the laying of your chosen decorative covering, this latex compound is used for levelling-out sub-floors. This screeding is suitable for substrate made from wood, concrete, sand/cement, quarry tiles or asphalt, is ideal for the application of adhesives and gives a durable, smooth surface. If there is a bit of movement in the subfloor this latex screeding will provide a flexible, crack-free finish on which you can lay your chosen floor coverings.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screeding is being laid on top of underfloor heating, depths of 50mm-65mm may be needed, and latex flooring screeds are not suitable for this purpose.
