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

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is required this formula of cement and latex is used to produce 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. The liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of just one millimetre, but still provides a high strength surface for a selection of flooring finishes.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to move forward urgently with the flooring on account of time constraints, these screeds dry much faster than standard flooring screeds. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm/day, subject to the mix, they are generally a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are ideal for flooring projects that have tight deadlines.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is required. Polymer screeds are available from many screed manufacturers and on account of their different chemical compositions have specific setting times for each individual product.


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

Screeding Near Whetstone (LE8)

If cleaning products were used it's vital to remove any remnants of soap, detergent etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. It's essential to repair any cracks in the surface to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" upwards into your freshly screeded floor. A reliable Whetstone screeding specialist will address these aspects during a site survey and make sure that all preparations are complete before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

To shield the screeding layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be laid. The DPM is made out of thick polythene and different layers could be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screed.

An additional air-tight barrier might be needed if your building is in a location that's regarded as susceptible to radon. If radon gas occurs in large amounts then a complete ventilation system might be needed under the screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from the ground.

Once these steps have been taken the screeders will apply a sealant or primer to the prepared base. Primers help with the bonding process and are special applications matched to the kind of screed being applied. Equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by qualified screeding companies in Whetstone observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Before any screed can be laid, any underfloor heating (if required) will now set out and installed. The heating pipes and cabling are securely attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement and make sure that they are held in the correct position. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should produce even warmth all over the floor.

If you are not fitting under floor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared on site and laid. Your screeding contractor will give you guidance and advice on which screed type is appropriate for your needs, according to your intended use of the room. Be aware that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk on any screeded surfaces and at least 72 hours before any flooring can be applied. If you are looking to end up with a nicely finished and long-lasting floor surface you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to standard and heavy duty screeds where this timescale will be increased.

As soon as the screed has set it can be checked for quality to determine the SR standard. The test involves the use of a two metre straight edge laid down upon the surface and any variations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best level and allows only three millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the entire screeded surface.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10 millimetres or less the screed quality is categorised as SR3 and is highly suitable for garage and utility areas.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is needed to carry out the testing. This assessment will ascertain the overall strength of the screed surface and its viability for the intended use. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" will be carried out at several areas on the screed layer and the results documented. The specialist testing and measurement tools needed mean that this can only be performed by a competent structural engineer obeying the guidelines of BS8204.

Latex Floor Screeds Whetstone

When a certain amount of flexibility is necessary in the surface of a floor you might find that the employment of a latex self-levelling screed will be advantageous. Latex floor screed comes in 2 parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cement based compound, and the bottle containing a liquid latex. Whereby water is normally used in a screed mix, this is replaced with the liquid latex, meaning that it is quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

Used for levelling-out subfloors, this latex compound creates a suitable surface for the installation of your chosen floor finish. Appropriate for subfloors of sand/cement, asphalt, concrete, stone tiles and wood, this screed gives a perfect surface for the application of flooring adhesives which is also resilient and smooth. Even where there happens to be movement on your subfloor, this type of latex screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish.

When a screed is being laid over a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex floor screeds aren't appropriate, because in such cases (usually when screeding over underfloor heating), you will likely need a thickness of 50mm-65mm.
