Choosing the right screeding materials and the best installation technique is vital if you want to finish up with a durable and quality finish for your floor.

Before selecting a floor screeding company from those based in the Newport Pagnell area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their estimate, and also make sure you get multiple quotations. For domestic properties a quote will normally be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) standard of SR1 or SR2.

Standard Screeds - A blend of sand and cement which is acceptable for everyday residential usage. This mix uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. The standard flooring screed dries at a rate of one millimetre thickness each day.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use over the top of under floor heating. The special fibres in this screed mix improve it's strength and durability whilst also safeguarding against thermal cracking and shrinkage. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to progress urgently with the flooring because of time limitations, these screeds dry much faster than standard screeds. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are perfect for a wide variety of projects where the swifter drying rate of 3-7mm/day is a big advantage.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex formula which can achieve the highest standard SR1 finish. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth 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 just one millimetre, but will still provide a high strength surface to take a selection of flooring materials.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is necessary. Maker's guidelines for curing times differ across the product ranges.


To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time must be spent on fully preparing the area before any screed is poured. The original floor surface should be cleaned to remove any oil, paint, grease and debris which can affect the adhesion of the screed.

Screeding Near Newport Pagnell (MK16)

If cleaning products were used it is vital to remove any residues of soap or detergent, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. At this point any cracks should be mended as these can easily travel up through a laid screed and be reflected in the completed floor surface. During a site survey the screeding company will notice what preparations are needed before starting to work on the screeding.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down once the preparation work has been done to stop ground dampness affecting the flooring materials and screed. The DPM is made from thick polythene sheet and various layers could be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

If the area is at risk from radon gas then a further barrier is required to stop this harmful gas from entering via the ground. This could be just a simple airtight membrane, or in more serious situations a ventilation system will be installed underneath the screed to extract any influx of air and gas from ground level.

The final stage of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealer. A primer assists in the screed to successfully bond to the base and membranes and different types exist according to which type of screed is being used. Devices such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, by qualified screeding contractors in Newport Pagnell observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before any screed is laid, any underfloor heating will now set out and installed. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and attached firmly to insulation panels to prevent potential movement in the course of the screed application. When skillfully installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm a room and top quality screed retains its heat, producing an even level of warmth across the floor surface.

If you are not putting in underfloor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the sort of screeding used. Bear in mind that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk on any laid surfaces and at least seventy two hours before any flooring materials can be laid. This timescale is longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's instructions must be followed to create the optimal finish and durability of the floor.

As soon as the screed has set it can be checked for quality to determine its SR level. The standard SR test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge to check for any variations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less as measured over the whole floor area shows your screed to be of the best quality and classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screeded surface deviates from the straight edge by five millimetres or less it is SR2 quality and is the standard for commercial and industrial floors.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the finish is comparatively immaterial SR3 is the classification and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

It might also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to do a soundness test. This assessment will determine the overall strength of the screed surface and the viability for its intended use. A "drop hammer test" will be conducted at various areas on the screed layer and the results recorded. Any screeding that's got point load requirements must be sanctioned by a trained structural engineer applying the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screed Newport Pagnell

It may be an advantage to use a latex floor screed when a certain degree of flexibility is required in a floor's surface. Latex floor screeds come in two parts - a bottle and a bag - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cement powder. 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 standard screeds.

This latex compound is used for levelling subfloors prior to the installation of the final decorative surface. Suitable for subfloors of wood, sand/cement, concrete, stone tiles and asphalt, this screeding gives a perfect surface for the application of flooring adhesives that is smooth and resilient. If your subfloor has any movement in it, this latex floor screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish, upon which your chosen floor coverings can sit.

When installing a "floating" screed, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, screed depths of 50mm-65mm may be needed, and latex floor screeds are not suitable for this purpose.
