Standard Screeds - Used in residential projects where the mix of sand and cement is perfect for regular floor traffic usage. This mixture uses a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. The standard screed will dry at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. The drying times for these vary as outlined by product guidelines.

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

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry quickly and allow you to use the screeded area much sooner. The vast majority of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are ideal for a whole host of flooring projects where the speedier drying rate of three to seven millimetres is advantageous.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use on top of under floor heating. The increased flex and strength provided by the fibres in this screed mix help protect the floor from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. The screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex compound. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all flooring materials to be laid. Even with a depth of just one millimetre, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength screed for a wide variety of uses.

To guarantee the screeding is of a good quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time must be spent on carefully preparing the area before any screed is poured. It is vital that all contaminants such as oil, loose debris, grease or paint is eradicated from the floor before pouring any screed, since these can affect the bonding process that a quality floor screed needs.

If any cleaning products are used in this process it's vital to make certain that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the floor surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. At this point cracks need to be mended because these can travel up through a laid screed and be reflected in the completed floor surface. During an on-site survey the screeding specialist will ascertain what preparation work is required before starting to work on screeding the floor.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene might be used as a DPM and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation material.

A supplementary airtight barrier could be needed if your house is in an area which is regarded as prone to radon gas. If radon gas occurs in severe doses then a complete extraction and ventilation system may be installed beneath the screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from ground level.

Once the base has been properly prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealer or primer is then put on. These primers and sealers will make sure that the screed bonds successfully to the base surface and help accomplish a quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by certified screeding contractors in Newport-on-Tay following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and checked before the screed is poured. Insulation panels can be put in place and the cabling and heating pipes will be firmly fastened so there's no movement whilst the screed is being applied. Warmth is evenly spread across a floor area in a professionally fitted underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient method of heating, it's a great choice for most Newport-on-Tay home renovation projects.

If you aren't fitting under floor heating the screed can now be prepared on site and poured. Your intended use of the room will assist the screeding company on what kind of floor screed is ideal for your needs. Be aware that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk on any laid surface and a minimum 72 hours before any flooring materials 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 a stable and even floor surface.

The SR standard of your screed can be checked once it's solidified enough to be walked on. The basic SR test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best standard and permits just 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10mm or less the screed quality is classified as SR3 and is fine for garage and utility areas.

It might also be necessary for a structural engineer to perform a soundness test. This test will establish the overall strength of the screeding and the viability for its proposed use. An assessment called the drop hammer test is performed at several areas on the screed layer and the results noted. Any screed flooring that has point load requirements must be okayed by a certified structural engineer obeying the British Standards BS8204 regulations.

Latex Screed Newport-on-Tay

It is better to use a latex floor screed when a degree of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface. Latex screeds normally comprise 2 parts - a cementitious powder and a latex liquid component. The latex liquid solution replaces the water which would normally be used for mixing floor screed, and is quicker drying and much more flexible than standard screeds.

Prior to the installation of the final decorative covering, this latex product is used for levelling subfloors. Producing a resilient and smooth surface that is perfect for the application of adhesives, this is is suitable for use on subfloors of wood, stone tiles, sand/cement, asphalt and concrete. Even if there's movement on your sub-floor, this type of latex floor screed will produce a flexible, crack-free finish.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of acoustic or thermal insulation, screed depths of 50 to 65 millimetres may be necessary, and latex flooring screeds aren't suited to this purpose.
