The screeding specialist will also let you know if a structural engineer is required for your project, to identify any load requirements, flex strength and point loadings that your screed floor may need to conform with current building regulations and British Standards.

A correct mix of screed and the way it is laid is also critical to ensure the final quality of your floor surface.

Before deciding on a floor screeding specialist from any operating in the Whitburn area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their price quote, and also make sure you get multiple quotes. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the figure to watch out for when getting a quotation from your Whitburn screeding contractor. SR2 and SR3 might be less costly options, although the finished floor surface may have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect quality of finish. Any errors in the screeding can cause issues with laying flooring because of flat spots, ridges, indentations in the floor surface.

British Standards BS8204 lays out the guidelines and regulations that all Whitburn screeding companies is obliged to follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc), they ought to be accredited by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. This accreditation scheme illustrates a firm's performance and training in the usage of a manufacturer's product.

Whitburn commercial screeders could be involved in the screeding of floors in factories, shopping centres, warehouses, hospitals, schools and hotels.


Standard Screeds - Widely used in domestic flooring projects where the mixture of sand and cement is good for basic floor traffic use. The ratios involved in standard screeds are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. After being laid a standard screed mix sets at a rate of 1mm/day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are needed, by a cement and latex mixture. Typically used to improve a poor substrate level or damaged floor so as to lay a new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks over the top of it. They can be as little as 1mm thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum durability and strength on floors where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor base is required.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry rapidly and allow you to use the floor area much sooner. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, determined by the specialised mix, they're normally a fibre reinforced screed and are ideal for projects that have tight schedules.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is necessary on account of construction requirements, a polymer screed offers a high strength resolution to the situation. Polymer screeds are available from a number of screed manufacturers and on account of their different chemical compositions have distinct setting times for each individual product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with underfloor heating systems and is the preferred option in these projects. The fibres in the screed mix enhance overall durability and strength while also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. At approximately one millimetre per day, it has the same drying rate to standard floor screed.


Screeding companies will have to carefully prepare the area prior to any other work in order to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. The existing floor surface should be cleaned to eliminate any oil, grease, paint and debris which might affect the adhesion of the screed.

Screeding Near Whitburn (EH47)

Any cleansing products used in this phase shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor then all cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and causing deviations on the finished floor surface. A competent Whitburn screeding company will take note of such aspects during the site survey and make certain all preparations are complete before moving on to the next stages of the screeding process.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be applied after the preparation work has been completed to stop ground dampness affecting the flooring materials and screed. Different thicknesses of polythene sheeting may be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation material.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon gas then a further barrier is required to stop this harmful gas from entering via the ground. If radon gas occurs in large amounts then a full ventilation and extraction system may be installed under the screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from the ground.

As soon as the floor base has been prepared and any DPMs installed, a primer or sealer is then applied. Primers help the bonding process and are special applications according to the type of screed that's being applied. These substances require experienced technicians to apply them in the correct proportions by using bespoke equipment, such as airless sprays.

If you're installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be correctly laid out and installed. Insulation panels can be put in place and the cabling and heating pipes will be securely mounted so there's no movement while the screed is poured. Warmth will be evenly spread across the floor in an expertly installed under floor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient method of heating, it's a great choice for most Whitburn home renovation projects.

If you're not installing under floor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and poured. The requirements of the room will determine the sort of screeding used. After the pouring of the screed there's a minimum 24 hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you are able to walk upon the surface, and a 72 hour minimum setting time before the laying of any floor coverings. If you're aiming to end up with a properly finished and durable floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where the timescale will be longer.

You can test the SR standard of the completed screeding once it is hardened enough to walk on. The test involves using a 2m straight edge laid down upon the surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3mm or less being measured over the entire floor area shows your screeding to be of the best quality and specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the entire screeded surface.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is relatively inconsequential the SR3 is the classification and should have a maximum deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If your screed has been laid with particular loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be required to perform tests. This assessment will ascertain the overall strength of the screeding and its viability for the intended use. This can include a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. The specialist measurement and testing tools involved mean that this can only be carried out by a certified structural engineer observing the guidelines of BS8204.

Latex Screeding Whitburn

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a certain degree of flexibility is necessary, it may be an advantage to use a latex floor screed, as opposed to one with a rigid finish. Latex floor screeds typically comprise 2 parts - a cementitious powder and a latex liquid mixture. The liquid latex part takes the place of the water that's used in other types of screed, making it quicker drying and more flexible.

Used for levelling subfloors, this latex compound creates a suitable surface for the installation of the final floor finishes. This is suitable for subfloors made from asphalt, wood, sand/cement, concrete or stone tiles, is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a durable and smooth surface. If there happens to be a bit of movement in the sub-floor this type of latex screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish on which you can lay your chosen floor coverings.

When installing a "floating" screed, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid on top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, screed depths of 50mm-75mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds are not appropriate for this purpose.
