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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured option where underfloor heating is being installed in residential properties in Wellingborough. The fibres in the screed mix enhance overall durability and strength whilst also protecting against thermal cracking and shrinkage. It's got a drying rate of 1mm per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to move forward urgently with the flooring because of time restraints, these screeds dry more speedily than standard screeds. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, determined by the mixture, they are generally a fibre reinforced screed and are great for flooring projects that have tight schedules.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Polymer screeds are available from a number of manufacturers and on account of their varying chemical compositions have specific curing times for each product.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement formula. It's mostly needed to provide a high quality floor over the top of a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a surface onto which all types of flooring materials can be laid. The liquid screed can be poured to a depth of only one millimetre, but still provides a high strength base for a wide variety of flooring finishes.


Good preparation is essential for a high quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. It's crucial that any contaminants such as grease, oil, paint or debris is eradicated from the base before pouring any screed, as these can affect the bonding capability that a quality screed requires.

If cleaning products have been used it's vital to remove any remnants of detergent, soap etc, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. It's essential to repair any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to avoid them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into your freshly screeded floor. An experienced Wellingborough screeding specialist will take note of these problems during a site survey and make certain all preparations are complete before moving on to the next stages of the screeding process.

Before any screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be put down to shield the screed and final flooring from dampness. Different gauges of polythene sheeting might be used as a damp proof membrane and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon gas then a further barrier is necessary to prevent this harmful gas from entering from the ground. A simple airtight membrane may be enough in locations with low radon measurements, but in more severe cases there might have to be a more complex extraction and ventilation system to block any harmful radon.

The final phase of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a sealer or primer. These sealers and primers will guarantee the screed bonds properly to the floor base and help produce a top quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by qualified screeding companies in Wellingborough sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.

Under floor heating can now be installed and checked before the screed is poured. Insulation panels can be put in position and the wires and heating pipes will be securely attached so there's no movement while the screed is poured. When expertly installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm a room and good quality screed retains its heat, producing an even heat across the floor.

If you're not installing underfloor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared in situ and laid. Your intended use of the room will help your screeding contractor on what form of screed is perfect for your needs. After the application of the screed there'll be a minimum 24 hours (for quick drying screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a seventy two hour minimum setting period before the laying of any floor coverings. If you're aiming to wind up with a nicely finished and long-lasting floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where this timescale will be longer.

The SR standard of your screeding can be checked once it has solidified sufficiently to be stepped onto. The basic SR test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3mm or less as measured across the entire floor area shows your screed to be of the highest quality and specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the whole screeded floor.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the finish is comparatively unimportant the SR3 is the classification and has a deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If you require load bearing checks, a structural engineer is necessary to conduct the tests. This assessment will determine the strength of the screeded surface and the suitability for its intended use. An assessment called the drop hammer test is conducted at various areas on the screed layer and the outcomes recorded. The precise testing and measurement tools required mean this can only be carried out by a trained structural engineer heeding the BS8204 guidelines.
