Standard Screeds - This is acceptable for normal residential usage and is a combination of cement and sand. The standard screed is a mixture of 5 parts sand to one cement. After being laid a standard screed mix dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional installers for use in combination with under floor heating systems. The fibres in this screed mix improve it's durability and strength while also protecting 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 is a need to use the floor as quickly as possible a fast drying screed can be utilised. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, subject to the mixture, they're usually a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are ideal for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is necessary because of building factors, a polymer screed provides a high strength solution to this problem. Polymer screeds are made by many screed manufacturers and owing to their varying chemical compositions have specific setting times for each individual product.

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

Screeding Quotes Northfleet Kent

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is needed this blend of cement and latex is employed to create SR1 level floor screeding. This is mostly needed to produce a smooth, level floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. These can be as little as one millimetre thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.


To make sure the screeding is of a good quality finish which is hard wearing and durable, time must be devoted to fully preparing the area before any screeding material is poured. Any oil, debris, paint and grease on the original floor level can affect the bonding of the screed, and must be eradicated.

If cleansing products have been used it's essential to remove any residues of detergent, soap etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. At this point any cracks should be mended as these can easily travel up through your laid screed and be reflected in the completed floor surface. During an on-site survey your Northfleet screeding company will notice what preparation work is necessary before starting to work on screeding the floor.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed. There could be 2 or 3 layers of varying thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

A further airtight barrier may be needed if your home or business premises is in a location that is regarded as prone to radon gas emissions. If radon is present in severe doses then a full ventilation and extraction system might be needed underneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from ground level.

Once the floor base has been prepared and all membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. These sealers and primers will ensure that the screed bonds perfectly to the base and help to create a quality finished floor. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by qualified screeding installers in Northfleet sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.

If you're installing under floor heating, now is the time that it will need to be correctly set out and installed. Insulation panels can be positioned and the heating pipes and wires will be firmly mounted so there's no movement while the screed is being poured. Warmth is spread evenly across the floor in a skillfully installed underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an effective choice of heating, it is an excellent choice for many Northfleet home restoration projects.

If you aren't fitting underfloor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared on site and laid. Your proposed use of the room will assist the screeding specialist on which form of floor screed is right for your needs. Don't forget that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you are able to walk over any screeded surfaces and a minimum 72 hours before any floor coverings can be fitted. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds should be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even surface.

You can evaluate the SR standard of the finished screed once it is hard enough to walk on. The basic SR test uses a 2m straight edge to check for any variations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less as measured over the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the highest quality and specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a quality finish isn't required. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10mm.

If you require load bearing checks, a structural engineer is needed to conduct the testing. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will establish the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. The screed layer could be given a "drop hammer test" to determine flexibility and strength in specific areas. Only trained structural engineers observing the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to conduct such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of screed flooring.
