There are numerous screeding companies in the Telscombe area so try to get multiple quotes for your screeding project before picking a contractor and know to what standard of finish is it for. The estimate may be based on what is called the Surface Regularity, or SR number.

This could mean that you may have to fix any areas that might cause issues when putting down your final flooring material.

British Standards BS8204 lays down the regulations and guidelines that all Telscombe screeding installers is obliged to follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc), they must be certified by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use.

Commercial screeders in Telscombe will generally undertake floor screeding projects in shops, restaurants, schools, hospitals, warehouses and factories.


Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic projects where the combination of cement and sand is ideal for basic floor traffic usage. The ratios involved in standard screeds are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. The standard flooring screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are high or heavy loading on the floor is necessary, heavy duty screeds offer maximum strength and durability.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement formula. This is primarily needed to produce a smooth, level floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a surface onto which all kinds of flooring materials can be laid. They can be as little as 1mm in depth, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries at a quicker rate and allows you to use the screeded area much sooner. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are perfect for a wide range of flooring projects where the quicker curing rate of three to seven millimetres is an advantage.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is required. Manufacturer's guidelines for drying times differ across the various product ranges.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with underfloor heating and is the preferred option in these projects. This is because of the improved durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the special fibres within the screed mix. It has a drying rate of one millimetre per day.


Good preparation is essential for a quality finished screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. Any paint, oil, debris and grease on the existing floor level can affect the bonding of the screed, and must be removed.

Any cleansing products used during this stage shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" through a screed layer and producing imperfections on the finished floor surface. An on-site survey will enable your Telscombe screeding installer to pinpoint these preparation areas and complete them before commencing to apply the screed layer.

Before any screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture damage. Different thicknesses of polythene sheets may be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.

If your home is located in an area where radon is present a supplementary barrier layer is needed to stop radon gas from seeping through. A simple air-tight membrane could be suitable in places with relatively low radon emissions, but in more serious cases there may have to be a more sophisticated extraction and ventilation system to block any harmful radon.

The final phase of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a sealant or primer. These sealers and primers will make sure the screed bonds perfectly to the floor base and help to achieve a quality finished floor. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, by qualified screeding companies in Telscombe following the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before any screed is laid, any under floor heating will now set out and installed. The heating pipes and cables are firmly attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement and make certain they're laid in the correct position. Warmth will be evenly spread across a floor area in a skillfully installed underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's a great choice for the majority of Telscombe home restoration projects.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared in situ and spread onto the base. Your intended use of the room will assist your screeding company on which kind of floor screed is perfect for your requirements. Bear in mind that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any laid surfaces and a minimum 72 hours before any flooring can be applied. If you're hoping to wind up with a well finished and long-lasting floor surface you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where the timescale will be increased.

The SR level of your screeding can be checked once it's solidified sufficiently to be stepped onto. Through the use of a 2 metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any deviations, dips and ridges in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3mm or less being measured over the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and is classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5 millimetres or less it is considered SR2 level and is the standard for commercial and industrial projects.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect finish isn't required. This classification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10 millimetres.

If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to conduct the testing. This assessment will establish the strength of the screed surface and its viability for the proposed use. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" is performed at several areas on the screed and the outcomes recorded. Only fully qualified structural engineers respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are allowed to conduct such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.

Latex Screeds Telscombe

When the surface of a floor needs a certain degree of flexibility, it might be best to use a latex screeding. Generally coming in 2 parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cementitious powder and a liquid latex component. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds, since the water which is normally used is replaced with the liquid latex.

Before the laying of your chosen decorative covering, this latex compound is used for levelling-out subfloors. This screeding is appropriate for use on sub-floors of concrete, quarry tiles, asphalt, wood and sand/cement, to provide a resilient and smooth surface that is ideal for the application of adhesives. This type of screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there's a bit of movement in your sub-floor.

When an unbonded screed is being laid on top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex flooring screeds are not suitable, because in this case (generally when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you will likely require a screed thickness of 50mm-65mm.
