The training and skills that a certified screeding contractor brings to your project will guarantee a successful result and help to prolong the life of your floor.

There are many screeding contractors in the Withernsea area so see if you can get multiple quotations for your floor screeding project before picking a contractor and know to what standard of finish it's for. For residential properties a quotation will normally be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) standard of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the best level, and whilst SR2 and SR3 might seem less expensive at first glance, they do not guarantee a totally even or flat surface. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there are ridges or flat spots that could cause issues when putting down your final flooring materials.

The guidelines and regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by all Withernsea floor screeding companies and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc.) to demonstrate their safe working practices and competence. A company holding such accreditations shows that they've been assessed and trained in using these screeding products and can deliver a high quality service in all aspects of their installation.

Standard Screeds - This is perfect for regular domestic usage and comprises a blend of cement and sand. This mixture uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre per day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex formula. Mostly used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level in order to lay a brand new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks over it. Even with a thickness of just 1mm, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is necessary. On account of their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying curing times which you can verify by viewing manufacturer's guidelines.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where maximum strength and durability is necessary.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to progress urgently with the flooring owing to time constraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard screeds. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are ideal for a wide variety of flooring projects where the swifter drying rate of three to seven millimetres is a welcome advantage.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use over the top of under floor heating. This is due to the increased durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking offered by the special fibres within the screed mix. It dries out at the same rate as a standard screed of 1mm per day.


Screeding companies will need to carefully prepare the area before any other work in order to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It is crucial that all contaminants such as loose debris, paint, grease or oil is eliminated from the floor surface before pouring any screed, as these can affect the bonding process that a good quality floor screed needs.

Screeding Near Withernsea (HU19)

If cleaning products have been used it's important to remove any traces of soap or detergent, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. At this stage any cracks need to be mended because these can travel up through the laid screed and be visible in the finished surface. An on-site survey will enable your Withernsea screeding company to highlight these preparation areas and finish them before beginning to lay the screeding.

Before any screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed to protect the screed and final flooring from moisture. There may be 2 or 3 layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

A further airtight barrier might be necessary if your home is in a location which is regarded as prone to radon gas. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a full extraction and ventilation system might be needed beneath the screed which will remove any gases that might seep in from the ground.

The final phase of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a sealer or primer. Sealers and primers assist with the bonding process and are special applications according to the type of screed being applied. These materials require skilled tradesmen to apply them in the correct ratios by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.

If required, this is the time that under floor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. The wires and heating pipes are securely attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure that they are held in the correct position. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system should deliver even warmth across the floor area.

If you are not putting in under floor heating the screed will now be prepared on site and laid. Your screeding specialist will have given you advice and guidance on which screed type is best for your requirements, in line with your proposed use of the room. After application of the screed there'll be a minimum 24 hours (for quick drying screeds) before you are able to walk on the surface, and a 72 hours minimum setting time for any floor material installation. If you are using heavy duty or standard screeds the curing time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed in order to get the best finish to your floor.

The SR standard of your screed can be checked once it's hardened sufficiently to be walked on. Through the use of a 2 metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any ridges, deviations and dips in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less as measured across the whole floor area shows your screeding to be of the best quality and is classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the entire screeded floor.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is fairly unimportant the SR3 is the standard and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If you require load bearing checks, a structural engineer is needed to conduct the tests. The testing will make certain that your new screed surface is viable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the original site survey. The screed could be subjected to what is known as a "drop hammer test" to measure flexibility and strength in various areas. The specialist testing and measurement tools mean this can only be carried out by a fully qualified structural engineer observing the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screed Withernsea

When a bit of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface you may find that the use of a latex self-levelling floor screed will be advantageous. Latex floor screeds normally comprise 2 parts - a cementitious powder and a latex liquid additive. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds, since the water that's normally used is exchanged for the latex liquid.

This latex compound is used for levelling subfloors prior to the installation of the final decorative covering. Giving a smooth, resilient surface which is ideal for the application of adhesives, this is is suitable for use on substrate of concrete, wood, sand/cement, asphalt and quarry tiles. If your subfloor has a bit of movement in it, this type of floor screed will still produce a flexible, crack-free finish, on which your final floor coverings can sit.

When a screed is being laid on top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex floor screeds aren't suitable, because in such cases (generally when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you'll likely need a screed thickness of 50 to 75 millimetres.

Screed Floor Removal

Pre-existing screed can be extracted and eliminated from a surface through the process of screed floor removal. The necessity often arises when renovating or upgrading a floor. Effective breakdown and removal of the screed layer calls for the use of specialist techniques and equipment in the removal process. Preparation of the surface for new flooring material or other alterations becomes achievable through this. Professional contractors with expertise in screed removal skillfully carry out the safe and efficient elimination of the previous screed, granting the floor a fresh beginning suitable for design changes, repairs or upgrades.
