Any error in the screeding can cause problems in laying flooring due to flat spots, ridges, indentations in the floor surface.

Standard Screeds - Used in residential projects where the mix of sand and cement is ideal for standard floor traffic use. The standard screed is a mix of 5 parts sand to one of cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of one millimetre thickness each day.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is required. The setting times vary in accordance with proprietary product guidelines.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are expected to be high or heavy loading of the floor is necessary, heavy duty screeds deliver maximum durability and strength.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this blend of latex and cement is employed to achieve SR1 quality screed flooring. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all flooring materials to be laid. They can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries at a quicker rate and allows you to use the floor area much faster. They're usually a fibre reinforced type of screed which can dry out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are employed in time critical projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with underfloor heating systems and is the favoured option in these projects. The increased strength and flexibility provided by the fibres within the screed mix help protect the resulting floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. It has a setting rate of one millimetre per day.


Screeding installers will have to carefully prepare all areas before any other work in order to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. It's vital that all contaminants such as grease, paint, oil or debris is eliminated from the base before laying any screed, since these can affect the adhesion capability that a quality floor screed needs.

Screeding Near Tayport (DD6)

If any products are used in this process it is vital to make certain that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and resulting in deviations on the finished surface. An on-site survey will allow your Tayport screeding company to identify these preparation areas and finish them before commencing to pour the screeding layer.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be installed once the preparation work has been finished to stop ground moisture affecting the flooring materials and screeding. Different thicknesses of polythene sheeting could be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation material.

If your house is located in a place where radon gas is found an additional barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from getting through. A simple air-tight membrane might be enough in places with low radon emissions, however in more severe situations there might have to be a more complicated extraction and ventilation system to remove any ground penetrating radon gas.

As soon as the base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a sealer or primer is then put on. Sealers and primers help the bonding process and are specialist applications specifically designed for the type of screed that's being applied. On account of their specialist nature, only experienced screeders in Tayport are capable of using them safely and correctly and through the use of bespoke equipment for the task.

Under floor heating can now be installed and checked before the screed is poured. Insulation panels can be positioned and the heating pipes and cables will be securely fastened so that there is no movement whilst the screed is being poured. Warmth will be spread evenly across a floor area in a skillfully installed underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient method of heating, it's a good choice for most Tayport renovation projects.

Floor Screed Tayport (Dialling code	01382)

Obviously, if you are not installing under floor heating, you can just skip this stage and apply the screed. Your screeding contractor will have given you guidance and advice on which kind of screed is appropriate for your requirements, in line with your intended use of the room area. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before any flooring material can be applied. Such time periods will be longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to produce the optimal finish and longevity of the floor.

You can check the SR level of the finished screed as soon as it's solidified enough to walk on. Using a 2 metre straight-edge the surface is examined for any dips, deviations and ridges in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less being measured across the whole floor area shows your screed to be of the highest quality and classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of five millimetres or less it is considered SR2 quality and is the standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is ten millimetres or less the screeding quality is categorised as SR3 and is the standard required for utility and garage areas.

If your screeding has been laid with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer will be necessary to conduct the tests. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will ascertain the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. This should include a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. The precise measurement and testing tools required mean this can only be carried out by a certified structural engineer obeying the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Granolithic Screeding

Granolithic screeding is a process of creating a smooth and even surface for floor coverings like tiles or carpets. It involves mixing cement, sand and aggregate to form a mixture, which is then applied to a concrete base. The mixture is levelled with a straight edge to give it a smooth, seamless surface.

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

The granolithic screeding process involves preparation of the concrete base, mixing the screed mixture, laying the mixture, and allowing it to cure. Proper application and curing techniques are crucial for the strength and longevity of the screed. The screed must be fully cured before any further flooring is laid.
