Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this solution of cement and latex is used to create SR1 quality floor screeding. It's primarily used to provide a smooth, clean floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a finish onto which all forms of flooring materials can be laid. They can be as little as 1mm thick, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum durability and strength on floors where traffic is expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is necessary.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is necessary on account of building requirements, a polymer screed provides a high strength solution to the problem. Manufacturer's guidelines for drying times differ across the various product ranges.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use over the top of under floor heating. The fibres in this screed mix increase it's strength and durability while also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It sets at an identical rate to a standard screed, at about 1mm per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to press ahead urgently with the work owing to time constraints, this screed dries more speedily than standard flooring screeds. They are typically a fibre reinforced type of screed which can dry out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are employed in time dependent flooring projects.


Screeding companies will have to carefully prepare all areas before any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any grease, paint, oil and debris on the original floor level can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be removed.

Screeding Near Ross-on-Wye (HR9)

If any products were used in this process it's vital to ensure that no residues of detergents, soaps or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor then all cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the final surface. A professional Ross-on-Wye screeding company will address these aspects during the site survey and make sure that all preparations are completed before moving on to the next steps in the screeding process.

To shield the flooring materials and screeding layer from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be laid. Different thicknesses of special polythene may be used as a DPM and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.

A supplementary air-tight barrier could be needed if your building is in an area that is known to be prone to radon gas emissions. If radon is present in large amounts then a full ventilation and extraction system might be needed beneath the layer of screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

The final step of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealant. These sealers and primers will guarantee the screed bonds successfully to the base and help produce a good quality finished floor. These materials need certified tradesmen to apply them in the right proportions by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.

Under floor heating can now be installed and tested before the screed is applied. The cabling and heating pipes are securely mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and make certain that they're held in the correct position. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system should provide even level of warmth across the floor area.

If you're not putting in under floor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and laid. Your screeding company will have given you advice and guidance on which screed type is best for your needs, in line with your intended use of the room. After the application of the screed there's at least 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a 72 hours minimum curing time for the laying of any floor coverings. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds should be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and provide an even and stable floor surface.

As soon as the screeding has hardened it can be checked for quality to determine its SR level. The test involves using a two metre straight edge laid on the surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best standard and allows just three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the whole screeded surface.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10 millimetres or less the screeding quality is classed as SR3 and is highly suitable for utility and garage areas.

It may also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. This test will determine the overall strength of the screed and the viability for its intended use. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" will be performed at several areas on the screed and the results noted. The precise measurement and testing tools required mean this can only be performed by a trained structural engineer applying the guidelines of BS8204.

Latex Floor Screeds Ross-on-Wye

It is advantageous to use a latex floor screed when a certain amount of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor. Latex floor screeds usually comprise two parts - a cementitious powder and a latex liquid component. The latex liquid part replaces the water which would normally be used in a screed mix, and is much more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed.

Before the installation of the final decorative covering, this latex product is used for levelling subfloors. Suitable for substrate of asphalt, wood, concrete, stone tiles and sand/cement, this gives a perfect 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 latex screeding will give you a crack-free, flexible finish.

Latex flooring screeds are not suitable where "floating" screeds are required, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, such as could be the case when you're screeding over underfloor heating, and screed depths of 50 to 65 millimetres may be needed.
