Frequently Asked Questions

Is floor screeding safe?

The answer to this depends on the screed you choose.

Traditional floor screeds come in two options:

  • Pre-mixed
  • Site-mix

Site-mix floor screeds are exactly what you’d expect – a combination of sand and cement that needs to be mixed on-site before being used.

When these materials are emptied out of their packaging and mixed together, a significant amount of dust is released which, unless protective gear is being worn, can be inhaled by the worker. This dust can contribute to respiratory issues including asthma.

Pre-mixed traditional screeds are a safer option. Mixed in a factory prior to being delivered to site, they meet both European and British standards and reduce the risk of any dust inhalation.

Here at JCW Floor Screeding, we take the health and safety of our team seriously, which is why we only supply and install pre-mixed screed.

What are the benefits of traditional floor screed?

A popular material in many construction projects, both domestic and commercial, floor screed comes with a variety of benefits.

Firstly, floor screed is a strong material. However, when fibres and additives are added – polypropylene for example – its strength, and other properties such as drying time, can be further enhanced.

Health and safety is a priority in any home or workplace and, unfortunately, uneven floors are often the cause of accidents. Traditional floor screed is an ideal material for creating a level base on top of any uneven concrete sub-floor – which in turn will improve health and safety.

Unlike liquid screed, traditional screed needs to be manually levelled. This means that it can also be used to smooth out flooring in areas that require a slightly uneven floor – wet rooms for example.

Screeding can be left as the final flooring – such as in warehouses– however, most people choose to lay an additional final flooring to ensure a sleek finish. Laminate, tiles and stone are all popular choices.

And finally, floor screeding is a great overlay for underfloor heating as it releases the heat in a uniform manner.

How long does floor screed take to dry?

The length of time it takes for floor screed to fully dry depends on the screed you choose.

Here at JCW Floor Screeding, we use pre-mixed traditional sand and cement floor screed. Typically, you can expect to wait 48 hours for all our traditional floor screed to dry enough for light foot traffic to return.

With both our higher strength and fast drying floor screeds, normal site traffic can usually return after around 5 days. However, normal site traffic can only resume after 7 days when using our fibre-reinforced screed.

Environmental factors also affect the drying time. For example, the temperature within your space as well as the humidity both play a part. Your floor screeder will assess your environment before giving you advice on this matter.

What are the different types of floor screed?

There are two different types of floor screed; liquid and traditional.

Liquid floor screeds are pumped into a room and tend to self-level whereas traditional screeds are manually shovelled into a room and are then levelled by hand.

Here at JCW Floor Screeding, we work with three types of traditional sand and cement floor screeds:

·        Fibre-reinforced floor screed

This screed contains polypropylene fibres which minimise shrinkage and cracking during the drying process.

·        Higher strength floor screed

Thanks to additives, this screed has a lower water/cement ratio than others which reduces shrinkage and cracking when drying.

·        Fast frying floor screed

This traditional floor screed is the fastest drying out of the bunch. Because you’re able to apply your final flooring much sooner, it’s the preferred screed where time is of the essence.
