Floor Screeding Rye East Sussex (TN31): When you're restoring your Rye property that has uneven or damaged floors, or maybe converting a basement or cellar into a useful living area, a professional floor screeding specialist should be your first port of call. Before you are able to lay a final floor covering, whether it is tile, wood or carpet, the floor base should be as flat as is possible; which is why floor screeding is sometimes essential. The screeding is an important process to guarantee a durable and quality finish to the entire floor structure.

Floor Screeding Rye East Sussex (TN31)

It may be necessary, according to the intended use of the room, for a survey by a structural engineer to abide by building regulations on point loadings, flex strength and load requirements of the screed floor.

Working with a highly trained and skilled contractor will guarantee that you get the appropriate form of screed for the room's anticipated purpose to extend the lifetime of your floor. The correct mixture of screed and the way it is laid is also vital to guarantee the final quality of your floor.

Make certain that you get two or three quotations for your Rye screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each price quote is for. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the figure to keep your eye on when studying an estimate from your Rye screeding contractor. SR2 and SR3 may be less expensive options, but the floor screeding finish may have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect quality of finish. Any imperfections in the screeding (as might arise with SR2 or SR3) may cause problems in laying flooring due to flat spots, indentations, ridges in the surface.

The rules and regulations set out in in the British Standards BS8204 must be followed by all Rye floor screeding contractors and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc.) to demonstrate their competence and safe working practices. A company holding accreditations demonstrates they have been trained and assessed in using these products and can offer a top notch service in all areas of their installation.

Commercial screeders in Rye will generally tackle larger screeding projects in warehouses, factories, hospitals, schools, shops and boutiques.


Standard Screeds - Frequently used in residential projects where the blend of cement and sand is okay for basic floor traffic use. The ratios involved in standard screeds are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. The standard flooring screed will dry at a rate of one millimetre thickness each day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use over the top of underfloor heating. This is due to the increased strength and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking offered by the fibres within the screed. It's got a setting rate of 1mm per day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this solution of cement and latex is used to produce SR1 level floor screeding. Primarily used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, such as tiling over the top of it. They can be as little as 1mm thick, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area in question ASAP a fast drying screed may be used. They're typically a fibre reinforced screed which can dry out at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are employed in time-sensitive projects.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is needed on account of construction factors, a polymer screed provides a high strength solution to the situation. On account of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying setting times which you can verify by viewing manufacturer's own product guidelines.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is required, heavy duty screeds allow for maximum strength and durability.


Screeding companies will need to carefully prepare all areas before any other work in order to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. Any paint, oil, grease and debris on the original floor surface can affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be removed.

If cleansing products were used it's essential to remove any remnants of soap etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. At this point any cracks should be mended because these can travel up through the laid screed and be reflected in the completed floor surface. During a site survey your Rye screeding contractor will notice what preparations are required before any actual screeding commences.

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

If the area where you live is at risk from radon then one additional barrier is necessary to stop this harmful gas from entering from the ground. This can be just a simple airtight membrane, or in severe cases an extraction and ventilation system will be installed beneath the floor screed to take away any influx of air and gas from ground level.

The final stage of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealer. These primers and sealers will ensure the screed bonds properly to the base surface and help create a good quality finished floor. Because of their specialist nature, only trained screeders in Rye should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and through the use of equipment that's made for this task.

Before the screeding is laid, any underfloor heating (if required) will now be laid out. The cables and heating pipes are securely mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure that they're positioned correctly. When skillfully installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm up a room and good quality screeding will retain its heat, producing an even level of warmth across the floor.

If you are not putting in underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared on site and poured. The particular requirements of the room will determine the form of screeding that's used. After application of the screed there's a minimum 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you are able to walk on the surface, and a 72 hours minimum drying time for the laying of any floor coverings. If you are using heavy duty or standard screeds the curing time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be adhered to so as to get the best finish to your floor.

The SR standard of your screeding can be verified once it has set sufficiently to be walked upon. The standard SR test uses a two metre long straight-edge to check for any variations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best quality and permits just 3 millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is specified as SR3 and is the standard required for garage and utility areas.

It may also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to perform a soundness test. This test will establish the strength of the screeding and the suitability for its intended use. This should include a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. Only experienced structural engineers obeying the British Standards BS8204 regulations are permitted to conduct such tests and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.

Latex Screeding Rye

When a certain amount of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface you might find that the employment of a latex floor screed will be best. Latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cemetitious powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex. The latex liquid solution replaces the water which would typically be used for mixing floor screed, and is quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

This latex screed compound is used to level a subfloor prior to the final decorative surface being laid. Producing a smooth, resilient surface which is perfect for the application of adhesives, this is is suitable for use on sub-floors of sand/cement, wood, concrete, stone tiles and asphalt. If there is any movement in the subfloor this type of latex screeding will give you a flexible, crack-free finish on which to lay your final floor coverings.

Latex screeds aren't a suitable choice where a "floating" screed is required, for example when a screed is being laid on top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, such as may be the case when you are screeding over underfloor heating, and thicknesses of 50 to 75 millimetres may be necessary.
