Standard Screeds - A mix of cement and sand which is perfect for standard residential usage. The standard screed is a mix of five parts sand to one of cement. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of 1mm per day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement formula which can achieve the highest standard SR1 finish. Largely used to finish off a poor substrate level or damaged floor in order to lay a new flooring surface, such as tiles on top of it. These can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

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

Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Polymer screeds are available from a number of manufacturers and owing to their diverse chemical compositions have distinct drying times for each product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional installers for use in combination with underfloor heating systems. The fibres in this screed increase it's strength and durability while also safeguarding against thermal cracking and shrinkage. It dries out at an identical rate to a standard screed of 1mm per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to press ahead urgently with the work due to time restraints, this screed dries much faster than standard screeds. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are suitable for a wide array of flooring projects where the swifter curing rate of 3-7mm is a considerable advantage.


Good preparation is vital for a quality finished screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. It is vital that any contaminants such as loose debris, paint, grease or oil is eliminated from the floor surface before pouring any screed, since these can affect the bonding capability that a quality floor screed needs.

Screeding Near Stanway (CO3)

If cleaning products were used it is essential to remove any residues of soap or detergent, and allow the surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor then all cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and producing deviations on the finished surface. During an on-site survey your Stanway screeding installer will be able to see what preparations are required before any actual screeding work starts.

To shield the flooring materials and screeding layer from moisture rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed. There could be two or three layers of varying thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.

If your property is situated in an area where radon gas is found a supplementary barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from entering. If radon gas is present in severe doses then a full extraction and ventilation system may be installed under the layer of screed which will remove any gases that might seep in from ground level.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeding company will apply a sealer or primer to the prepared floor base. These sealers and primers will guarantee the screed bonds effectively to the base and help to accomplish a high quality finished floor. Due to their specialist nature, only professional screeding specialists in Stanway should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and through the use of equipment that is made for the task.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and checked before the screed is applied. Insulation panels will be put in place and the cables and heating pipes will be securely attached so that there is no movement whilst the screed is applied. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system should deliver even warmth in all areas of the floor.

The screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and applied to the base surface. Your screeding specialist will have given you advice and guidance on which type of screed is appropriate for your needs, in line with your proposed use of the room area. For quick drying screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further 72 hours minimum before you are able to lay any flooring materials. If you are laying heavy duty or standard screeds the curing time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed in order to get the best possible finish for your floor.

The SR level of your screed can be checked once it's hardened sufficiently to be walked upon. The basic SR test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge to check for any variations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole area, if there are no deviations greater than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the whole screeded surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish isn't necessary. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10 millimetres.

If your screeding has been laid with specific loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be necessary to conduct the tests. This assessment will establish the overall strength of the screed and its viability for the intended use. The screeding should be given what is known as a drop hammer test to measure flexibility and strength at specific points. The precise measurement and testing tools needed mean this can only be carried out by a qualified structural engineer respecting the BS8204 guidelines.

Granolithic Screeding

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

The resulting flooring is slip-resistant, easy to clean and hard-wearing, making it ideal for use in areas with high foot traffic, such as schools, factories and shopping centres.

The granolithic screeding process involves a number of steps, including preparation of the concrete base, blending of the screed mixture, laying of the mixture, and curing of the screed. Correct mixing, curing and application methods are crucial to ensure the strength and durability of the granolithic screed. Furthermore, the screed should be allowed to fully cure before any flooring materials are installed on top of it.... READ MORE.

Latex Screeds Stanway

When the make-up of your floor's surface means that a certain degree of flexibility is required, it may be best to apply a latex screed, as opposed to one with a more rigid finish. Latex floor screeds come in 2 parts - a bottle and a bag - with the bottle containing liquid latex and the bag containing a cemetitious powder. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than standard screeds, because the water that's normally used is substituted for the liquid latex.

This latex product is used for levelling sub-floors in advance of the installation of the final decorative surface. This screeding is suitable for sub-floors made from asphalt, wood, stone tiles, concrete or sand/cement, is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a durable and smooth surface. If there is a bit of movement in the subfloor this latex screeding will give you a flexible, crack-free finish on which to lay your final floor coverings.

When a screed is being laid over a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation (i.e. a floating screed), latex floor screeds are not a suitable choice, because in such cases (generally when screeding over underfloor heating), you will likely require a thickness of 50 to 75 millimetres.

Screed Floor Removal Stanway
