Working with a skilled and highly trained contractor will ensure that you get the appropriate kind of screed for the room's intended usage and get the maximum lifespan out of the resulting flooring. A correct mix of screed and the way it is laid is also important to ensure the ultimate durability of your floor.

Before picking out a floor screeding company from any operating in the Rye area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their estimate, and also make certain that you get two or three quotes. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the figure to watch out for when studying a quote from Rye screeding companies. SR1 is the highest standard, and while SR2 and SR3 might be cheaper initially, they do not guarantee a perfectly flat or even floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 level may mean there will be ridges or flat spots that might cause problems when installing your final floor surface.

Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic projects where the mix of sand and cement is okay for basic floor traffic usage. The standard screed is a mix of five parts sand to one of cement. After being laid a standard flooring screed dries out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use on top of underfloor heating. This is due to the increased durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the special fibres within the screed mix. It has a setting rate of 1mm per day.

Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a reduced thickness. The drying times vary as outlined by product guidelines.

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

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

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are required, by a cement and latex formula. Mainly used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like tiling on the top of it. The liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of only one millimetre, but will still provide a high strength surface to take a varied selection of flooring materials.


Screeding installers will need to carefully prepare the area prior to any other work so as to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any debris, oil, paint and grease on the original floor level can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be removed.

Any cleansing chemicals used in this phase shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry out naturally. At this stage cracks need to be repaired as these can easily travel up through your laid screed and be reflected in the completed surface. A site survey will allow your Rye screeding contractor to identify these preparation areas and complete them before commencing to lay the screeding.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down after the preparation work has been completed to stop ground moisture affecting the flooring materials and screeding. The DPM is made out of thick polythene sheet and different layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon gas then a further barrier is needed to stop this harmful gas from entering via the ground. An air-tight membrane might be suitable in locations with low radon emissions, but in more serious situations there may have to be a more complex extraction and ventilation system to remove any ground penetrating radon.

Once these stages have been completed the screeding company will apply a primer or sealant to the prepared base. Primers help with the bonding process and are special applications matched to the kind of screed that is being used. Owing to their specialist nature, only experienced screeders in Rye should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and through the use of bespoke equipment for this task.

If you're installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be correctly set out and installed. Insulation panels can be arranged and the heating pipes and cabling will be securely attached so that there is no movement whilst the screed is being poured. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in a skillfully installed underfloor heating system, and along with it being an efficient method of heating, it's an excellent choice for most Rye home restoration projects.

The screed can now be prepared in situ and poured onto the floor surface. Your screeding company will have given you advice and guidance on which kind of screed is best for your needs, according to your intended use of the room area. Don't forget that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk on any screeded surface and at least seventy two hours before any flooring can be applied. If you are looking to end up with a properly finished and durable floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where this timescale will be longer.

As soon as the screeding has solidified it can be quality checked to ascertain its SR level. Using a 2 metre straight-edge the surface is checked for any dips, deviations and ridges in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best quality and allows just three millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the floor has a deviation from the straight-edge of five millimetres or less it is SR2 level and is the standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is ten millimetres or less the screeding quality is categorised as SR3 and is highly suitable for utility and garage areas.

If your screeding has been installed with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be required to perform the assessment. The assessment will make certain that your new screeding is viable for the load point requirements set down in the original site survey. The screed could be subjected to what's known as a "drop hammer test" to assess strength and flexibility at different points. The specialist testing and measurement tools mean this can only be performed by a certified structural engineer heeding the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screeds Rye

When the nature of your floor's surface means that a bit of flexibility is needed, it may be best to use a latex self-levelling screeding, rather than one with a rigid finish. Typically coming in two parts, latex screeds comprise a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex mixture. The liquid latex solution replaces the water which would typically be used for mixing floor screed, and is quicker drying and much more flexible than other types of screed.

This latex product is used for levelling subfloors prior to the installation of your chosen decorative covering. This screed is suitable for use on subfloors of stone tiles, wood, concrete, sand/cement and asphalt, to give a smooth, durable surface that is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives. If your sub-floor has any movement in it, this type of floor screed will still provide a crack-free, flexible finish, upon which your final floor coverings can sit.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screed is being laid on the top of underfloor heating, thicknesses of 50mm-65mm may be necessary, and latex flooring screeds aren't appropriate for this purpose.
