Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with underfloor heating and is the preferred option in such projects. The increased flexibility and strength offered by the special fibres within this screed help protect the resulting floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. At around 1mm per day, it has the same curing rate to standard floor screed.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries quickly and allows you to use the screeded area much sooner. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, subject to the mixture, they're usually a fibre reinforced screed and are great for flooring projects which have tight schedules.

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

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Polymer screeds are made by a number of screed manufacturers and due to their diverse chemical compositions have distinct curing times for each product.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are required, by a latex and cement formula. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all sorts of flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be poured to a depth of only one millimetre, but will still provide a high strength surface for a selection of flooring finishes.


Screeding installers will have to prepare all areas before proceeding with any other work in order to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The original floor surfaces should be cleaned to eliminate any grease, paint, debris and oil which can affect the adhesion of the screed.

Screeding Near Uddingston (G71)

Any cleaning products which are used during this phase should leave no residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry out naturally. It's essential to repair any cracks or crevices in the surface to avoid them being mirrored and "travelling" up into your newly screeded floor. A decent Uddingston screeding contractor will pick up on these issues during the site survey and make sure all preparations are finished before applying the next stages of the floor screeding process.

To shield the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed. Different gauges of special polythene may be used as a DPM and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.

Another air-tight barrier may be necessary if your house is in an area that is regarded as susceptible to radon gas. If radon occurs in severe doses then a complete ventilation and extraction system may be installed beneath the layer of screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from ground level.

Once the base has been prepared and any DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then put on. These sealers and primers will guarantee the screed bonds properly to the base surface and help achieve a quality finished floor. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, by experienced screeding installers in Uddingston sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before the screed is applied. Insulation panels will be laid out and the heating pipes and cabling will be securely attached so there's no movement whilst the screed is being applied. Warmth will be spread evenly across a floor area in a skillfully installed under floor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient method of heating, it is an ideal choice for most Uddingston home renovation projects.

Needless to say, if you're not putting in under floor heating, you simply skip this step and apply the screed. Your screeding company will give you guidance and advice on which form of screed is appropriate for your requirements, according to your intended use of the room. Be aware that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk on any screeded surfaces and at least three days before any flooring can be applied. If you're laying heavy duty or standard screeds the setting time is longer and you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best finish to your floor.

The SR level of your screed can be ascertained once it's set sufficiently to be walked on. Using a 2 mtr straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any ridges, dips and deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best quality and permits just three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a quality finish isn't required. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation of ten millimetres.

If your screed has been installed with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be needed to conduct the assessment. Using specialised equipment the engineer will ascertain the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. This can include a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. The specialist testing and measurement tools involved mean that this can only be conducted by a certified structural engineer applying the guidelines of BS8204.
