Screeding a floor is the process of applying a well-blended mixture of ordinary Portland Cement with graded sand and a minimal amount of water to form a solid, level subfloor that is capable of receiving the final floor finish.
Our experienced floor screeders are skilled at laying this material on every shape and size of floor, ensuring an even and complete floor surface around fixtures like soil pipes, electrics, ducts, thresholds, and underfloor heating pipes.
Commercial floor screeding is the perfect solution to providing a solid, level floor where underfloor heating systems are to be installed, as well as areas that are expecting high foot traffic.
The process involves placing a damp proof membrane (DPM) over the prepared concrete floor base, and then adding a layer of thermal insulation over the DPM.
This insulation is designed to accept the tacker clips used to secure underfloor heating pipework. Screed is then laid over the whole area and worked to a smooth, level surface. The floor screed fully encases the pipework, both securing it firmly in position and allowing efficient heat transfer upwards into the final floor coverings.
Floor screeding is therefore a vital step in ensuring the quality, performance, and durability of the entire floor system.

There are a few things you need to do to prepare your commercial floor for screeding. These include clearing the area, shuffling furniture between rooms and removing the existing floor covering.
It’s also worth sweeping or hoovering any dust, dirt and debris from the subfloor. Such particles can prevent the mixture from settling evenly.

Yes! Although most people opt for commercial floor screeding to prepare subfloors for a final covering (e.g. carpet, tiles, wooden planks, etc), it looks fantastic on its own.
A bare screed floor is typically used where a minimalist finish is favoured. More than that though, it’s often more cost-effective to leave it exposed in commercial environments.

Traditional screed, also known as sand and cement screed, is made by mixing sand, cement, and water. It’s applied manually, used in thicker layers and can take several weeks to fully dry. Liquid screed, also known as self-levelling screed, is a premixed blend of fine aggregates, cement, and water. It’s poured or pumped onto the floor and spread out evenly in a thin layer. Liquid screed is usually chosen for time-conscious projects because it dries quicker, especially in jobs with underfloor heating systems.
