Your screeding contractor will also let you know if a structural engineer is needed for your undertaking, to evaluate point loadings, flex strength and load bearing that your screed floor may require to conform with building regulations and British Standards.

The training and skills that a qualified screeding contractor brings to your project should guarantee a successful result and help in extending the lifespan of your floors. A correct mixture of screed and the techniques used for laying it are also important to ensure the final durability of your floor surface.

Before deciding upon a screeding specialist from those operating in the Armthorpe area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their estimate, and also make sure that you get two or three quotations. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the figure to keep your eye on when reviewing a quotation from Armthorpe screeding companies. SR1 is the highest standard, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may be less costly at first glance, they don't guarantee a perfectly even or flat floor surface. This means you might have to correct any patches that may cause issues when putting down your final flooring material.

British Standards BS8204 sets down the guidelines and regulations that all Armthorpe screeding companies must follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete etc), they must be certified by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. The training and assessment of a floor screeding company by a manufacturer is highlighted through the accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any flooring project involving their materials.

Armthorpe commercial screeders may be involved in screeding floors in hospitals, shopping centres, salons, schools, warehouses and factories.


Standard Screeds - This is good for normal residential usage and is a combination of cement and sand. The standard screed is a mixture of 5 parts sand to 1 of cement. After being laid a standard screed mixture sets at a rate of just 1mm/day.

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

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the floor at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed may be used. Most of the fast drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are appropriate for a wide range of projects where the speedier curing rate of three to seven millimetres is a considerable advantage.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is essential. Manufacturer's guidelines for setting times are different across the product ranges.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex formula which can achieve the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all sorts of flooring materials to be laid. Even with a depth of only 1mm, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength screed for a wide range of uses.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use on top of underfloor heating. The special fibres in this screed mix improve it's strength and durability whilst also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm/day.

Screeding companies will have to carefully prepare all areas prior to any other work in order to guarantee a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The original floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eliminate any debris, paint, oil and grease which might adversely affect the bond of the screeding.

Screeding Near Armthorpe (DN3)

If cleaning products were used it's important to remove any remnants of detergent, soap etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" through the screed layer and causing imperfections on the finished surface. A site survey will allow your Armthorpe screeding installer to take note of these preparation areas and finish them before starting to pour the screeding layer.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be put down to protect the screed and final flooring from moisture damage. There may be two or three layers of varying thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

An additional airtight barrier could be required if your home or business premises is in a location that's regarded as susceptible to radon gas. A simple airtight membrane may be sufficient in areas with low emissions of radon, but in more severe situations there might need to be a more complicated extraction and ventilation system to remove any harmful radon.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a sealant or primer. A primer helps with the screed bonding process to the base and membranes and different types exist according to which type of screed is being applied. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by professional screeding contractors in Armthorpe sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Under floor heating can now be installed and tested before screeding is applied. Insulation panels will be put in position and the heating pipes and wires will be firmly fastened to prevent any movement whilst the screed is poured. When properly installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm a room and good quality screeding retains its heat, producing an even heat right across the floor.

Needless to say, if you aren't putting in underfloor heating, you can skip this stage and apply the screed. Your proposed use of the room will assist your screeding contractor on what sort of floor screed is perfect for your requirements. Remember that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any screeded surfaces and a minimum three days before any flooring materials can be fitted. Such periods will be increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's instructions must be followed to the letter to produce the optimal finish and longevity of the floor.

You can check the SR level of the finished screed as soon as it is solidified enough for walking on. The standard SR test uses a two metre long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there aren't any deviations greater than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface deviates from the straight edge by 5mm or less it is considered SR2 quality and is the normal standard for commercial and industrial projects.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish isn't required. This level allows for a maximium deviation of 10mm.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is needed to conduct the testing. The testing will make certain that your newly laid screeding is viable for the load point requirements set down in the site survey. An assessment called the drop hammer test will be carried out on various areas of the screed layer and the outcomes noted. Any screeding that's got point load requirements must be sanctioned by a fully qualified structural engineer respecting the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screeds Armthorpe

It is best to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a bit of flexibility is required in a floor's surface. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cemetitious powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex mixture. The latex liquid solution replaces the water that would normally be used for mixing screed, and is quicker drying and much more flexible than other types of screed.

This latex screed compound is used to level-out a sub-floor prior to the final decorative surface being installed. Suitable for sub-floors of wood, asphalt, sand/cement, concrete and quarry tiles, this gives the ideal surface for the application of flooring adhesives that's smooth and durable. This type of floor screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there's movement in your subfloor.

When installing a "floating" screed, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid over a membrane of either thermal or acoustic insulation, screed thicknesses of 50-65mm may be necessary, and latex screeds aren't suitable for this purpose.
