Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Designed for maximum strength and durability in places where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor is necessary.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the area as quickly as possible a fast drying screed may be used.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is necessary on account of building requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength resolution to this problem. Manufacturer's guidelines for curing times differ across the product ranges.


Good preparation is vital for a quality finished screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The original floor surface should be thoroughly cleaned to eliminate any oil, grease, debris and paint that might adversely affect the bond of the screed.

Any cleansing products that are used in this process should leave no residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. At this stage cracks need to be mended as these can travel up through your newly laid screed and be reflected in the finished surface. A reputable Pencoed screeding company will address such problems during the on-site survey and make certain all preparations are completed before applying the next stages of the screeding process.

To protect the screeding layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be laid. Different thicknesses of polythene sheets might be used as a DPM and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon then one additional barrier is necessary to prevent the gas from entering via the ground. This could be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in more serious situations a ventilation and extraction system will need to be installed under the floor screed to draw out any influx of air and gas from the ground.

Once the floor base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then applied. Sealers and primers help the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the kind of screed that is being used. Owing to their special nature, only certified screeding specialists in Pencoed are capable of using them correctly, safely and using equipment that's made for this task.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and tested before screeding is applied. Insulation panels will be put in position and the heating pipes and wires will be securely mounted to prevent any movement whilst the screed is applied. Warmth will be evenly spread across a floor area in a professionally installed under floor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's an excellent choice for most Pencoed renovation projects.

Naturally, if you aren't installing underfloor heating, you can just ignore this step and get on with applying the screeding. The specific requirements of the room will determine the type of screeding used. After the application of the screed there's a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying screeds) before you're able to walk on the surface, and a 72 hrs minimum drying time before the laying of any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for heavy duty and standard screeds must be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even floor surface.

As soon as the screeding has hardened it can be quality checked to confirm its SR standard. The standard SR test involves the use of a two metre straight edge to check for any variations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole area, if there aren't any disparities greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you have a top level SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the entire screeded floor.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is ten millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is classified as SR3 and is the standard required for utility and garage areas.

There may also be a requirement for a structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will verify the screeded surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. The screed could be subjected to what is known as a "drop hammer test" to determine flexibility and strength in different areas. Any screed flooring that has point load requirements must be sanctioned by a competent structural engineer following the British Standards BS8204 regulations.

Latex Floor Screed Pencoed

It is better to use a latex self-levelling screeding when a certain degree of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface. Normally coming in 2 parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cementitious powder and a liquid latex component. The liquid latex part replaces the water which would normally be used in a screed mix, and is quicker drying and much more flexible than other types of screed.

Used in the levelling-out of sub-floors, this latex product creates a suitable surface for the installation of your chosen floor finishes. Appropriate for substrate of wood, asphalt, quarry tiles, concrete and sand/cement, this gives the ideal surface for the application of flooring adhesives that is durable and smooth. Even if there happens to be a bit of movement in your subfloor, this type of screed will provide a flexible, crack-free finish.

When a screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation (i.e. a floating screed), latex flooring screeds are not appropriate, because in such cases (generally when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you'll probably need a screed thickness of 50mm-75mm.
