The screeding contractor will also inform you if a structural engineer is needed for your undertaking, in order to check on any load requirements, flex strength and point loadings that your flooring might require to conform with British Standards and building regulations.

The skills and training that a qualified screeding specialist brings to your project will guarantee a high quality result and help in prolonging the life of your floor. Picking the appropriate screeding materials and the method of installation is critical if you want to finish up with a quality and durable finish for your floor surface.

Before deciding on a screeding company from the many based in the Ardrossan area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quote, and also ensure that you get multiple estimates from different companies. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the figure to watch out for when getting an estimate from your Ardrossan screeding contractor. SR2 and SR3 might be less costly options, although the finished floor surface may have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect quality of finish. Any imperfections in the screeding (as might occur with SR2 or SR3) may cause problems in laying flooring owing to ridges, flat spots, indentations in the surface.

British Standards BS8204 lays down the guidelines and regulations that all Ardrossan screeding installers must follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete etc), they ought to be accredited by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. This accreditation scheme demonstrates a company's high quality performance and training in the usage of a manufacturer's screeding products.

Ardrossan commercial screeders could be involved in the screeding of floors in shops, factories, warehouses, pubs, schools and hospitals.


Standard Screeds - Frequently used in residential flooring projects where the blend of cement and sand is okay for regular footfall usage. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the usual mixture for standard screeds. The standard screed dries at a rate of one millimetre thickness each day.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is essential. Polymer screeds are made by a number of manufacturers and owing to their diverse chemical compositions have specific setting times for each individual product.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are required, by a latex and cement material. Largely used to finalise a poor substrate level or damaged floor so as to lay a brand new flooring surface, such as tiling over the top of it. They can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with underfloor heating systems and is the preferred choice in such projects. The special fibres in this screed enhance overall durability and strength whilst also safeguarding against thermal cracking and shrinkage. At roughly one millimetre per day, it has an identical setting rate to standard screed.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are high or heavy loading on the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds offer maximum durability and strength.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry rapidly and allow you to use the screeded area much faster. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, determined by the mix, they're normally a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are perfect for projects that have tight deadlines.


To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish which is durable and hard wearing, time must be spent on preparing the area prior to any screed being poured. Any oil, debris, grease and paint on the existing floor surface can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be removed.

Screeding Near Ardrossan (KA22)

If cleaning products have been used it's essential to remove any remnants of soap or detergent, and allow the surface to dry naturally. At this stage any cracks need to be mended as these can easily travel up through a laid screed and be visible in the completed surface. During an on-site survey your Ardrossan screeding installer will ascertain what preparations are necessary before any actual screeding starts.

To shield the screeding layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed. Different thicknesses of polythene sheets might be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation materials.

An additional airtight barrier might be necessary if your home is in an area that is regarded as susceptible to radon. A simple airtight membrane could be sufficient in places with relatively low radon measurements, but in more extreme cases there may need to be a more complicated extraction system to remove any ground penetrating radon gases.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealant. A primer helps with the screed to bond successfully to the base and membranes and different varieties exist based upon which kind of screed is being used. These products require professional contractors to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using airless sprays and other custom-built equipment.

Before any screed is poured, any underfloor heating will now be laid out. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and mounted firmly on insulation panels to prevent potential movement in the course of the screed installation process. When expertly installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and decent quality screed will retain its heat, producing an even level of warmth across the floor surface.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared on site and applied to the base surface. Your proposed use of the room will help the screeding company on which type of floor screed is ideal for your requirements. After application of the screed there's a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying screeds) before you can walk on the surface, and a 72 hrs minimum setting time for the laying of any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds must be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide an even and stable floor surface.

You can test the SR standard of the completed screeding once it is hardened enough for walking on. The standard SR test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole area, if there aren't any disparities of more than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10mm or less the screed quality is classified as SR3 and is fine for utility and garage areas.

If you require load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is needed to carry out the tests. The assessment will ensure your newly laid screeding is viable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the site survey. The screeding should be subjected to a "drop hammer test" to measure strength and flexibility in various areas. The precise testing and measurement tools mean this can only be undertaken by a qualified structural engineer heeding the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Floor Screed Ardrossan

When a floor's surface needs a degree of flexibility, it might be wise to use a latex screed. Latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cement powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex mixture. The latex liquid solution replaces the water that's used in standard screeds, making it more flexible and quicker drying.

This latex screed compound is used to level a sub-floor before the final decorative surface is laid. Suitable for substrate of concrete, stone tiles, asphalt, wood and sand/cement, this screeding gives a perfect surface for the application of adhesives which is also resilient and smooth. This type of latex screeding will provide a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there is a bit of movement in your sub-floor.

Latex flooring screeds aren't appropriate where "floating" screeds are needed, for example when a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, such as could be the case when you are screeding on top of underfloor heating, and thicknesses of 50-65mm may be required.
