Our screed flooring products guarantee a smooth and level surface and are suitable for use with underfloor heating. When applied correctly, they will ensure that heat is distributed evenly throughout the room – eliminating any hot and cold spots whilst saving you money on your energy bills every month.
If you’re unsure which floor screed you need to level an uneven floor or enhance the efficiency of your underfloor heating, feel free to get in touch with us and we will happily guide and advise you.
When applied over the top of a concrete subfloor in a thin layer, these screeds achieve strengths of over 30 Nmm2 and are used in buildings which are to receive high levels of foot traffic.
These contain additives which speed up the drying process, allowing the screed material to dry more quickly so that floor coverings can be laid sooner, whether it be floor tiles, carpet, vinyl, laminate or stone flooring.
Here at JCW, we’d love to be able to give you an exact figure for levelling an uneven floor, but the truth is it depends on the size of the room that needs screeding, your preferred screed and how accessible the area is.
The good news is that our expert screeders will ensure that the right screed is used and laid to the correct thickness. We can also advise on drying times to ensure optimal results.

Floor screeding is a thin layer of sacrificial material, traditionally made from sharp sand and cement. It’s laid over the top of a concrete or insulation base to create a smooth, level surface and final floor finishes can be applied over it.
No two projects are ever the same and the cost of floor screeding depends on the scale of your project. Here at JCW, we provide floor screed to suit every budget and can offer a quote to match your exact requirements.
The primary purpose of floor screeding is to give a smooth, level floor finish which is designed to level a sub floor. Floor screed evens out a surface to make it easier and more comfortable to walk over and can be applied to a solid, in-situ or precast concrete floor slab.
The time it takes for screed to dry is referred to as ‘curing time’. It varies depending on the type and thickness of screed, so in heavy traffic environments, it’s recommended that you leave it for at least 5-7 days. Floor screed usually reaches its fully cured strength within 28 days, so for the best results, it’s recommended to wait until then.
‘Walk on time’ refers to how long it takes for the screed to dry and how soon you can walk over it. Screed must be left to dry for at least 24-48 hours in environments where foot traffic is light/low.
Here at JCW, we supply three different types of screed:

Preparation is key when you’re having your floor screeded and, the good news is, it couldn’t be simpler!
To ensure a bump-free finish, you’ll need to use either a dustpan and brush or your hoover to remove dirt, dust and debris from your subfloor. Such particles will prevent the cementitious mixture from settling, resulting in an uneven finish.
The team at JCW Floor Screeding will take care of every other aspect for you – from selecting the best type of floor screed for the job to mixing and applying it properly and advising you on drying times.
If you’d like to know more about the process of floor screeding and how to achieve optimal results, talk to the team today.
Whilst it’s possible to screed a floor yourself, and you’ll find plenty of helpful videos and tutorials online, it isn’t the easiest thing to do.
For starters, you need to make sure that sand and cement are mixed properly to the correct ratio, which can be difficult if it’s something you’ve never done before.
It can take years of practice to master creating a smooth, flat surface. And if floor screed isn’t applied in the right way, you’ll be left with a bumpy, uneven floor that’s not safe to walk. Your tables and chairs will more than likely be wobbly, too.
If you do something wrong when laying floor screed, you won’t be able to remove it and start all over again. All the more reason to leave floor screeding to the professionals.
The team at JCW are experts in floor screeding and we supply and install only the best traditional sand and cement screeds. We’ll happily talk you through the options available and help you choose the perfect one for your job.
After determining which screed to use, our screeders will make sure that it’s laid properly to ensure you benefit from a smooth, even surface.
