The screeding contractor will also notify you if a structural engineer is necessary for your project, in order to check on any load requirements, flex strength and point loadings that your flooring may need to conform with building regulations and British Standards.

The training and skills that a certified screeding technician brings to your project should guarantee a successful result and help to lengthen the lifetime of your flooring. There are many types of floor screed and choosing the appropriate mix and laying process is vital if you are to create a quality floor that is fit for purpose and durable.

Before deciding upon a screeding company from the many operating in the Poulton area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quote, and also ensure you get multiple estimates. The quote should be based on what is known as the Surface Regularity, or SR figure. SR2 and SR3 may be cheaper options, however the finished floor surface may have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect quality of finish. Any error in the screeding may cause issues with laying flooring due to flat spots, indentations, ridges in the floor surface.

Every Poulton screeding company has to adhere to British Standards (BS8204) and should have some form of accreditation from screeding material and equipment manufacturers, e.g. Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor. The testing and training of a screeding contractor by such manufacturers is emphasised by the use of the accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any screeding project involving their materials.

Poulton commercial screeders might be involved in the screeding of floors in hospitals, warehouses, schools, shops, hotels and factories.


Standard Screeds - A mixture of cement and sand which is good for normal residential use. Five parts sand to one part cement is the typical mixture for standard screed. The standard screed dries at a rate of one millimetre thickness each day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are necessary, by a latex and cement solution. Mainly used to improve a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks over the top of it. The liquid screed can be laid to a depth of just one millimetre, but still provides a high strength surface for a selection of flooring finishes.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use over the top of under floor heating. The improved flex and strength provided by the special fibres in the screed mix help protect the floor from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. It dries out at the same rate as a standard screed of 1mm per day.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is needed due to construction requirements, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength resolution to the situation. Polymer screeds are available from a number of manufacturers and due to their varying chemical compositions have distinct setting times for each individual product.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to use the area as quickly as possible a fast drying screed can be used. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm/day, depending on the specialised mix, they're typically a fibre reinforced screed and are ideal for flooring projects that have tight schedules.


To make certain the screeding is of a high quality finish that is durable and hard wearing, time should be devoted to carefully preparing the area prior to any screed being laid. The existing floor surface should be cleaned to eradicate any debris, paint, grease and oil which can affect the adhesion of the screeding.

Screeding Near Poulton (FY6)

Any cleaning products which are used in this phase should leave no residues, and the floor surface must be allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and causing imperfections on the final surface. During a site survey the screeding installer will be able to see what preparations are needed before any actual screeding work commences.

Before the screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be put down to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture. The DPM is made from thick polythene and various layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

If your house is located in a place where radon is found an additional barrier layer is needed to stop radon gas from seeping through. An airtight membrane might be enough in areas with low radon measurements, but in more serious cases there might have to be a more complex extraction and ventilation system to take away any harmful radon.

The final phase of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a sealant or primer. Primers and sealers help the bonding process and are special applications according to the sort of screed being used. These materials need professional tradesmen to apply them in the right proportions by using custom-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

If you're installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be set out and installed. The heating pipes and wires are securely attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make certain that they're held in the correct position. When professionally installed an under floor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and good quality screed will retain its heat, generating an even heat right across the floor.

If you aren't fitting under floor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the type of screeding used. After the application of the screed there'll be a minimum 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you're able to walk upon the surface, and a 72 hours minimum setting time for the laying of any flooring materials. Such timescales will be increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines must be followed to the letter to create the optimal finish and durability of the floor.

The SR level of your screeding can be verified once it's hardened enough to be walked upon. Using a 2m straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any dips, ridges and deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole floor area, if there are no disparities greater than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top level SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the entire screeded surface.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is comparatively inconsequential SR3 is the specification and should have a deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If your screed has been installed with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer will be needed to perform the tests. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will evaluate the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. This can include what is known as a drop hammer test which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only fully qualified structural engineers respecting the BS8204 regulations are allowed to perform these tests and sign off on the structural safety of screed flooring.

Granolithic Screeding

Granolithic screeding refers to a kind of flooring that consists of a mixture of aggregate, cement and sand. It is applied in a relatively thin layer and then smoothed to provide a hard-wearing, durable and seamless surface. It is typically used in industrial, public and commercial buildings where there's heavy foot or machinery traffic.

Granolithic screeding is usually used in commercial and industrial buildings as well as in high-traffic areas in residential buildings. It is also commonly used in areas where chemical and abrasion resistance are needed. The resulting surface is hard and smooth, which makes it easy to clean and maintain, and provides an ideal base for other flooring products.

Granolithic screeding is typically applied over a concrete base, and the surface is generally treated with a curing compound to ensure it sets properly. As soon as it has cured, it creates a seamless floor with a hard, smooth surface that is resistant to excessive wear. It's also resistant to chemicals and water, which makes it suitable for use in environments where there is a chance of spills or exposure to hazardous materials.

Latex Screed Poulton

It is advantageous to use a latex screed when a certain amount of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface. Latex screeds come in 2 parts - a bag and a bottle - with the bottle containing liquid latex and the bag containing a cemetitious powder. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed, because the water which is normally used is substituted for the latex liquid.

Prior to the laying of your chosen decorative covering, this latex compound is used for levelling sub-floors. This screeding is suitable for use on sub-floors of wood, concrete, sand/cement, asphalt and stone tiles, to give a resilient and smooth surface which is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives. This latex floor screed will provide a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there is movement in your sub-floor.

Latex floor screeds are not a suitable choice where a "floating" screed is required, for example when a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, such as might be the case when you are screeding over underfloor heating, and thicknesses of 50 to 65 millimetres may be required.
