How to choose a floor screeding contractor in 2021


Looking for floor screeding contractors in the new year?

Floor screed is a blended mix of sand and cement which is often applied to a solid in-situ concrete ground floor slab or onto a precast concrete floor. It’s typically used to level uneven floors – ready for a final covering of your choice – or to encase underfloor heating pipes, eradicating hot and cold spots in rooms.

Do a quick online search and you’ll find a wide range of companies that specialise in floor screeding, all promising the best quality floor screeds. The hardest part is deciding which to go with.

Here are just a few things you should consider when looking for reputable floor screeders, and why you should make JCW your no.1 choice:


First and foremost, you want to find a skilled screed team – preferably one with a wealth of experience. Not only will they have the necessary skills and equipment to screed floors quickly and efficiently, they will be able to advise you on the most suitable product for the task at hand – ensuring the best possible results.

Luckily for you, we are experts in our field and have been supplying screed for the past 25 years. During this time, we have worked with various self-builders, shopfitters and commercial clients across the length and breadth of the country, and are confident that we can help you. But don’t just take our word for it…see our case studies for details.

Product quality

There is a vast range of screeds on the market today and they all come with their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Before you rush your decision and opt for the first floor screeding contractors you find, take a look at their products. Are they of the highest quality? And, more importantly, are they suitable for your project?

Something that sets JCW apart from other screeders is that we supply the best traditional sand and cement screeds, including fibre-reinforced screed, higher-strength screed and fast-drying screed.


Timing is crucial when it comes to floor screeding because one small setback can have a huge knock-on effect on every aspect of your project. Make sure you allocate plenty of time to allow the screed to cure before the final floor covering can be applied.

If you’re on a tight schedule, and can’t afford any impediments, JCW’s floor screeders will happily work at weekends and throughout the evening to ensure deadlines are met in good time. It’s part of the flexible service we offer.


Any good floor screeding contractor will take care of the arduous work for you – like planning the project start to finish, selecting the appropriate screed, laying the screed and protecting it. Aside from this, they will offer a professional service, completing your project on time and within budget.

And we do just that here at JCW. We always carry out a full site survey and inspection before any work is carried out – ensuring maximum safety and efficiency.

Turnaround times

Don’t be afraid to ask contractors how long it will take to finish the project. It may differ depending on the type of screed, however, a reputable company will be able to give you an estimate so you can schedule other aspects of your project – ensuring everything runs according to plan.

With this in mind, we employ more than 50 floor screeders so we can be on-site within 1-2 days. This also allows us to complete projects sooner, without skimping on quality or safety.
