It might be a requirement, depending on the intended use of the area, for a structural engineering survey to conform to building regulations on flex strength, load requirements and point loadings of the screed floor.

Working with a qualified and skilled contractor will guarantee you use the correct sort of screed for the room's allocated usage and get the maximum lifespan out of your floor. There are numerous kinds of screeding and picking the correct mix and installation approach is crucial to achieve a quality floor which is fit for purpose and hard-wearing.

Ensure you get 2 or 3 quotations for your Telscombe based floor screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting a quote. For domestic homes a quotation will normally be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) level of SR1 or SR2. SR2 and SR3 might be more affordable options, but the finished floor surface could have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect finish. An SR2 or SR3 level could mean there will be ridges or flat spots that could cause issues when putting down your final flooring surface (tile, wood, carpet etc).

The regulations set out in in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by any Telscombe floor screeding contractor and they must also be approved by the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc.) to verify their safe working practices and competence. The testing and training of a floor screeding contractor by a manufacturer is emphasised by the use of the accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any project which involves their materials.

Commercial screeders in Telscombe will usually tackle floor screeding projects in warehouses, schools, hospitals, shopping centres, hotels and factories.


Standard Screeds - This is okay for basic residential usage and is a mixture of cement and sand. The ratios involved in standard screeds are five parts sand to one part cement. After being laid a standard flooring screed dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Maker's guidelines for curing times differ across the various product ranges.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where maximum strength and durability is very important.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are needed, by a cement and latex mixture. Mainly used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, such as tiles on top of it. This liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of only 1mm, but still provides a high strength base to take a varied selection of flooring finishes.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The first choice where underfloor heating is being installed in residential properties in Telscombe. This is due to the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the special fibres within the screed. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry at a quicker rate and allow you to use the screeded area much faster. They are usually 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.


To guarantee the screeding is of a high quality finish which is durable and hard wearing, time must be devoted to carefully preparing the area prior to any screed being laid. Any debris, grease, oil and paint on the existing floor level can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eradicated.

If any products were used in this process it's crucial to make sure that no residues of soaps, detergents or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. It's necessary to mend any crevices or cracks in the floor surface to avoid them being reflected and "travelling" up into your newly screeded floor. An on-site survey will allow the screeding company to identify this preparation work and finish it before beginning to apply the screed layer.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be put down after the preparation work has been concluded to prevent ground moisture getting into the flooring materials and screed. Different thicknesses of polythene sheeting might be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.

If your home is situated in a place where radon gas is found an extra barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from getting through. If radon is present in severe doses then a full ventilation and extraction system may be installed under the layer of screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from the ground.

As soon as the base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealer or primer is then put on. A primer assists in the screed bonding correctly to the base and membranes and different types exist depending on which screed type is being used. Owing to their special nature, only qualified screeding specialists in Telscombe should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and through the use of bespoke equipment for this task.

Before any screed can be laid, any under floor heating (if required) will now be installed. The heating pipes and wires are firmly attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make certain that they are laid in the correct position. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a properly installed system will give an even warmth in all areas of the floor.

If you aren't installing underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared on site and laid. Your use of the room will help your screeding specialist on which sort of floor screed is best for your needs. After the pouring of the screed there's a minimum 24 hours (for quick drying screeds) before you can walk on the surface, and a 72 hrs minimum curing period before the laying of any floor coverings. If you're hoping to end up with a nicely finished and hard-wearing floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where the timescale will be increased.

The SR standard of your screed can be confirmed once it's solidified sufficiently to be walked upon. Using a 2 mtr straight-edge the surface is checked for any dips, ridges and deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest level and permits just 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the entire screed.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a quality finish isn't required. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10mm.

There may also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to do a soundness test. This test will ascertain the strength of the screed and its viability for the intended use. This should include a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. Any screeding that's got load bearing requirements must be sanctioned by a certified structural engineer heeding the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screed Telscombe

It is advantageous to use a latex screeding when a certain amount of flexibility is necessary in the surface of a floor. 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 mixture. The latex liquid solution replaces the water which would typically be used for mixing screed, and is quicker drying and much more flexible than standard screeds.

This latex compound is used for levelling subfloors in advance of the laying of the final decorative surface. Suitable for substrate of sand/cement, asphalt, concrete, stone tiles and wood, this screed gives the ideal surface for the application of flooring adhesives which is smooth and resilient. This type of screeding will provide a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there is movement in your subfloor.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screed is being laid on the top of underfloor heating, thicknesses of 50 to 65 millimetres may be desirable, and latex floor screeds aren't a suitable choice in this instance.
