It might be necessary, based on the proposed use of the area in question, for a structural engineering survey to conform to building regulations on load bearing, flex strength and point loadings of the screed floor.

A skilled and qualified work force is essential to a successful result and will extend the life of your floor by making use of the correct form of screed for the intended purpose of your room. Choosing the correct screeding materials and the best installation technique is crucial if you want to end up with a durable and quality finish for your floor.

Before selecting a screeding company from those based in the Newbiggin-by-the-Sea area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their quotation, and also make certain that you get two or three price quotes. The price quote may be based on what's known as the Surface Regularity, or SR calculation. SR1 is the highest quality, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may be cheaper initially, they do not guarantee a totally even or flat surface. Any error in the screeding may cause problems in laying flooring owing to ridges, indentations, flat spots in the surface.

British Standards BS8204 lays down the guidelines and regulations that all Newbiggin-by-the-Sea screeding contractors must follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc), they should be approved by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. The training and testing of a screeding company by a manufacturer is highlighted by the use of this accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any flooring project involving their materials.

Newbiggin-by-the-Sea commercial screeders will be involved in screeding floors in warehouses, hotels, shops, hospitals, schools and factories.


Standard Screeds - A combination of cement and sand which is ideal for everyday residential usage. This mix uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with under floor heating and is the recommended choice in such projects. The increased strength and flex provided by the special fibres in this screed mix help protect the floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is required this formula of cement and latex is used to create SR1 level floor screeding. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of only 1mm, but will still provide a high strength base for a wide range of flooring finishes.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that is designed for heavy traffic and high load areas where maximum durability and strength is necessary.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is essential. On account of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying setting times which you can verify by reading manufacturer's product guidelines.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to progress urgently with the flooring because of time constraints, these screeds dry much quicker than standard flooring screeds. They are usually a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are employed in time dependent flooring projects.


Screeding installers will need to carefully prepare the area before any other work in order to guarantee a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The existing floor surface should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any grease, debris, oil and paint which might adversely affect the bond of the screeding.

Screeding Near Newbiggin-by-the-Sea (NE64)

If any products are used during this stage it is vital to ensure that no residues of detergents, soaps or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. At this point cracks should be repaired since these can easily travel up through the laid screed and be reflected in the finished floor surface. An experienced Newbiggin-by-the-Sea screeding company will address these aspects during a on-site survey and make certain all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed once the preparation work has been done to prevent ground moisture affecting the screeding and floor materials. Different gauges of polythene sheets might be used as a DPM and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation materials.

If the area is at risk from radon then a further barrier is essential to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. This can be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in more serious situations a ventilation and extraction system is installed underneath the screed to extract any influx of radon gas from the ground.

The final step of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealer. Primers help with the bonding process and are special applications matched to the kind of screed that is being used. Devices such as airless sprays are used to apply a sealant or primer, by certified screeding contractors in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea following the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before the screeding can be laid, any under floor heating (if required) will now be laid out. Insulation panels can be positioned and the cables and heating pipes will be securely fastened so there's no movement while the screed is being applied. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system should give an even warmth across the floor area.

Naturally, if you're not installing under floor heating, you can just bypass this stage and apply the screed. Your screeding company will give you guidance and advice on which screed type is appropriate for your needs, according to your proposed use of the room area. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds should be followed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with an even and stable surface.

The SR level of your screed can be ascertained once it has solidified sufficiently to be walked on. Through the use of a 2 metre straight-edge the surface is examined for any deviations, ridges and dips in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less being measured over the whole floor area shows your screeding to be of the finest quality and is classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5mm or less it is considered SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect quality finish is not required. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation of 10mm.

If you require load bearing checks, a structural engineer is necessary to perform the testing. Using specialist equipment the engineer will establish the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. This should include a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Any screeding that's got point load requirements must be okayed by a fully qualified structural engineer following the BS8204 regulations.

Latex Floor Screeds Newbiggin-by-the-Sea

When the make-up of your floor's surface means that a certain amount of flexibility is required, it will be advantageous to apply a latex self-levelling floor screed, as opposed to one with an unyielding finish. Latex floor screeds generally comprise 2 parts - a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex mixture. The liquid latex solution replaces the water which is used in standard screeds, making it more flexible and quicker drying.

This latex product is used for levelling subfloors in advance of the installation of your chosen decorative covering. This screed is suitable for substrate made of concrete, sand/cement, wood, quarry tiles or asphalt, is perfect for the application of adhesives and gives a durable and smooth surface. This type of latex screeding will produce a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there is movement in your subfloor.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when screeding is being laid on the top of underfloor heating, thicknesses of 50-75mm may be desirable, and latex screeds are not a suitable choice in this case.
