They will also assess if a structural engineer is needed to make sure that any load bearing, flex strength and point loadings are followed as outlined by the building regulations.

Skilled and qualified tradespeople are necessary for a successful outcome and will extend your floor's lifespan by using the right kind of screed for the intended purpose of your room. The correct mix of screed and the techniques used in laying it are also critical to guarantee the ultimate quality of your floor surface.

Ensure that you get 2 or 3 price quotes for your Rainworth based floor screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each price quote is for. For domestic properties a quotation will generally be given for an SR (Surface Regularity) level of SR1 or SR2. SR2 and SR3 could be less expensive options, although the floor screeding finish may have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect quality of finish. Any error in the screeding (as might occur with SR2 or SR3) can cause issues with laying flooring due to flat spots, indentations, ridges in the surface.

Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential flooring projects where the combination of sand and cement is ideal for normal footfall use. This mix uses a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness each day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional screeders for use with underfloor heating systems. This is due to the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the special fibres within the screed mix. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this compound of latex and cement is used to create SR1 quality screeding. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all flooring materials to be laid. Even with a thickness of just 1mm, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.

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

Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a lower thickness. The setting times for these vary according to proprietary product guidelines.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry quickly and allow you to use the floor area much faster. They're typically a fibre reinforced kind of screed which can dry at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are employed in time-sensitive projects.


To make certain the screeding is of a high quality finish which is durable and hard wearing, time should be spent on fully preparing the area prior to any screeding material being poured. Any debris, grease, paint and oil on the original floor surface can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be removed.

Any cleaning products which are used in this phase shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base 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" through a screed layer and resulting in deviations on the finished floor surface. An on-site survey will enable your Rainworth screeding company to pinpoint these preparation areas and complete them before starting to lay the screeding.

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

If your property is located in a place where radon gas is present a supplementary barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from seeping through. This can be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in more serious situations a ventilation system will be installed beneath the screed to take away any inflow of air and gas from the ground.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeding company will put on a sealer or primer to the prepared floor base. Sealers and primers help the bonding process and are special applications specifically designed for the sort of screed that's being applied. On account of their special nature, only qualified screeding specialists in Rainworth are capable of using them correctly, safely and using bespoke equipment for this task.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before the screed is poured. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and attached firmly to insulation panels to avoid any movement during screed pouring. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system will give an even level of warmth all over the floor.

The screed can now be prepared on site and spread onto the base surface. Your screeding specialist will give you advice and guidance on which type of screed is best for your requirements, according to your proposed use of the room area. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least twenty four hours delay before it can be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. If you're using standard or heavy duty screeds the curing time is longer and you must observe the manufacturer's guidelines so as to get the best possible finish to your floor.

You can check the SR level of the finished screed once it's hard enough for walking on. The test involves the use of a 2 mtr straight edge laid on the floor surface and any variations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less being measured across the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the highest quality and is classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is fairly inconsequential the SR3 is the standard and has a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to carry out the testing. The testing will ensure your new screed is suitable for the load bearing requirements set down in the original site survey. This should include what is known as a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only certified structural engineers respecting the BS8204 guidelines are permitted to carry out these tests and sign off on the structural integrity of screed flooring.

Latex Screed Rainworth

It is best to use a latex floor screed when a bit of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface. Typically coming in 2 parts, latex screeds comprise a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex component. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed, as the water which is normally used is exchanged for the liquid latex.

Before the laying of the final decorative covering, this latex compound is used for levelling-out sub-floors. Producing a resilient and smooth surface that's ideal for the application of flooring adhesives, this screed is is appropriate for use on sub-floors of concrete, asphalt, wood, sand/cement and stone tiles. This latex floor screed will provide a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there happens to be a bit of movement in your subfloor.

When using a "floating" screed, i.e. when a screed is being laid over the top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, screed thicknesses of 50 to 65 millimetres may be necessary, and latex screeds aren't suitable for this purpose.
