Standard Screeds - A mixture of sand and cement which is acceptable for everyday residential use. The ratios involved are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to use the area in question ASAP a fast drying screed might be a good choice. They're typically a fibre reinforced type of screed that dries out at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are used in time critical flooring projects.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are essential, by a latex and cement compound. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all forms of flooring materials to be laid. These can be as little as 1mm thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use on top of under floor heating. The improved strength and flex provided by the special fibres within this screed help protect the flooring from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Screeding Quotes Writtle Essex

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

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is necessary on account of building factors, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength solution to this problem. Because of their different chemical compositions, polymer screeds have varying setting times which you can verify by checking manufacturer's guidelines.


To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time must be spent on fully preparing the area before any screeding material is laid. Any oil, paint, debris and grease on the original floor level can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be removed.

If any cleaning products are used in this process it's crucial to make sure that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the surface and it is allowed to dry out naturally. It is vital to fix any crevices or cracks in the floor surface to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" up into your newly screeded floor. A site survey will allow the screeding contractor to pinpoint this preparation work and complete it before commencing to apply the screed layer.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be put down to shield the screed and final flooring from moisture damage. The DPM is made of thick polythene and different layers could be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screeding.

An additional air-tight barrier might be needed if your building is in an area which is regarded as prone to radon gas emissions. If radon is present in severe doses then a complete ventilation and extraction system might be needed beneath the screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from the ground.

The final stage of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealer. Primers and sealers help the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the kind of screed that's being applied. Because of their specialist nature, only qualified screeders in Writtle should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and through the use of bespoke equipment for the task.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before screeding is poured. Insulation panels can be arranged and the cabling and heating pipes will be firmly attached so there's no movement whilst the screed is applied. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should deliver even level of warmth all over the floor.

The screed can now be prepared in situ and spread onto the base. The requirements of the room will determine the form of screeding that's used. After the pouring of the screed there'll be at least 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you can walk on the surface, and a 72 hour minimum drying time before any floor covering installation. If you're laying standard or heavy duty screeds the setting time is increased and you must observe the manufacturer's guidelines so as to get the best finish for your floor.

Once the screed has hardened it can be quality checked to ascertain its SR standard. Through the use of a two metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any deviations, ridges and dips in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best level and permits only three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the screeded surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5mm or less it is SR2 level and is the standard for industrial and commercial floors.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect finish isn't needed. This classification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10mm.

It may also be necessary for a structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. This test will determine the strength of the screeding and the viability for its proposed use. This will include what is known as a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. Any screed flooring that's got load bearing requirements must be okayed by a certified structural engineer observing the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screed Writtle

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a level of flexibility is necessary, it will be best to use a latex floor screed, rather than one with an unyielding finish. Latex screeds come in two parts - a bottle and a bag - with the bottle containing latex liquid and the bag containing a cement based smoothing compound. The latex liquid solution replaces the water that would typically be used for mixing screed, and is quicker drying and far more flexible than standard screeds.

This latex compound is used for levelling subfloors in advance of the installation of your chosen decorative covering. Suitable for sub-floors of wood, quarry tiles, concrete, asphalt and sand/cement, this screeding gives the ideal surface for the application of adhesives that's durable and smooth. If there is any movement in the sub-floor this latex screeding will give you a crack-free, flexible finish on which you can lay your chosen floor coverings.

Latex floor screeds aren't suitable where a "floating" screed is needed, for instance when a screed is being laid on top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, such as could be the case when you are screeding on top of underfloor heating, and screed depths of 50 to 75 millimetres may be necessary.
