British Standards BS8204 sets down the guidelines and regulations that all Murton screeding installers is obliged to follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc), they should be approved by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use.

Commercial screeders in Murton will usually tackle floor screeding projects in hospitals, warehouses, shopping centres, schools, factories and salons.


Standard Screeds - A mix of cement and sand which is perfect for everyday residential use. This mixture uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of one millimetre per day.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a minimal thickness. On account of their different chemical compositions, polymer screeds have varying curing times which you can verify by viewing manufacturer's guidelines.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is needed this mixture of latex and cement is used to produce SR1 quality screeding. This self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all flooring materials to be laid. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

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 deliver maximum durability and strength.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to use the area at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed might be a good choice. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, depending on the specialised mix, they're usually a fibre reinforced type of screed and are perfect for flooring projects that have tight schedules.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional contractors for use in combination with under floor heating systems. This is due to the improved durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking offered by the fibres within the screed. At approximately 1mm per day, it has an identical curing rate to standard floor screed.


To make sure the screeding is of a high quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time must be devoted to preparing the area before any screeding material is poured. It is vital that all contaminants such as paint, oil, grease or debris is eradicated from the base before laying any screed, since these can affect the adhesion capability that a good quality floor screed needs.

Any cleansing products that are used in this process should leave no residues, and the floor surface must be allowed to dry out naturally. At this stage cracks need to be mended because these can travel up through the laid screed and be reflected in the finished surface. A skilled Murton screeding specialist will address these problems during a site survey and make sure that all preparations are finished before applying the next steps in the screeding process.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be applied once the preparation work has been concluded to stop ground moisture affecting the flooring materials and screeding. There could be two or three layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon then a further barrier is needed to prevent the gas from entering from the ground. A simple air-tight membrane could be enough in areas with relatively low radon measurements, but in more extreme cases there might need to be a more sophisticated ventilation and extraction system to block any ground penetrating radon gas.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeders will put on a primer or sealant to the prepared floor base. A primer helps with the screed to successfully bond to the base and different varieties exist based upon which kind of screed is being used. Devices such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by professional screeding contractors in Murton observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

If you are installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be set out and installed. Insulation panels will be put in position and the cabling and heating pipes will be firmly fastened so that there is no movement whilst the screed is applied. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system should give an even level of warmth in all areas of the floor.

The screed can now be prepared on site and poured onto the base. Your screeding contractor will have given you guidance and advice on which sort of screed is appropriate for your requirements, in line with your intended use of the room area. Don't forget that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you are able to walk on any screeded surface and at least 72 hours before any floor coverings can be laid. Such time periods will be increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's instructions should be followed to the letter to produce the optimal finish and longevity of the floor.

Once the screeding has hardened it can be quality checked to determine the SR standard. The test involves the use of a 2 metre long straight-edge laid on the surface and any deviations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest specification and allows only 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the whole screeded floor.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is categorised as SR3 and is suitable for utility and garage areas.

If your screeding has been installed with particular loading in mind then a structural engineer will be required to conduct these soundness tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will verify the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. The screed layer should be subjected to a "drop hammer test" to gauge flexibility and strength in different areas. The specialist testing and measurement tools mean this can only be carried out by a trained structural engineer obeying the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Screeds Murton

It is better to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a certain degree of flexibility is necessary in the surface of a floor. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cemetitious powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the latex liquid, which makes it quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

Prior to the laying of the final decorative surface, this latex compound is used for levelling subfloors. This is appropriate for use on subfloors of asphalt, quarry tiles, concrete, wood and sand/cement, to provide a smooth, resilient surface that's ideal for the application of flooring adhesives. If there happens to be a bit of movement in the subfloor this type of latex screed will provide a flexible, crack-free finish on which to lay your chosen floor coverings.

Latex floor screeds are not a suitable choice where a "floating" screed is desired, for example when a screed is being laid over a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, such as might be the case when you are screeding over underfloor heating, and depths of 50mm-75mm may be needed.
