Your screeding contractor will also tell you if a structural engineer is needed for your project, in order to identify any load requirements, point loadings and flex strength that your screed floor might require to conform with British Standards and building regulations.

Bringing in a qualified and highly trained flooring specialist will guarantee you get the correct form of screed for the room's allocated purpose to extend the lifetime of your flooring. Picking the right screeding materials and the method of installation is critical if you want a durable and quality finish for your floor.

There are many screeding specialists in the Bishopbriggs area so try to get multiple quotations for your floor screeding project before choosing a contractor and know to what standard of finish it's for. The estimate could be based on what is called the SR, or Surface Regularity number. SR1 is the best quality, and while SR2 and SR3 might be cheaper initially, they do not guarantee a totally even or flat surface. An SR2 or SR3 standard might mean there are flat spots or ridges that could cause issues when putting down your final flooring materials.

Standard Screeds - A combination of sand and cement which is ideal for basic domestic use. This mix uses a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. After laying a standard screed sets at a rate of 1mm/day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use on top of under floor heating. The greater strength and flexibility offered by the special fibres within the screed mix help protect the floor from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. It dries at an identical rate to a standard screed, at about one millimetre per day.

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

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is necessary due to building factors, a polymer screed offers a high strength resolution to the problem. Polymer screeds are available from a number of screed manufacturers and owing to their different chemical compositions have distinct setting times for each individual product.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is needed this blend of latex and cement is used to produce SR1 level screeding. It is mainly used to provide a high quality floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a surface finish onto which all forms of flooring materials can be laid. They can be as little as 1mm thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries at a quicker rate and allows you to use the floor area much sooner. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, subject to the mix, they're usually a fibre reinforced screed and are ideal for projects that have tight schedules.


Preparation is vital for a top quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. It's important that any contaminants such as grease, oil, paint or loose debris is eradicated from the base before laying any screed, because these can affect the adhesion capability that a quality screed needs.

Screeding Near Bishopbriggs (G64)

If cleaning products have been used it's important to remove any traces of soap, detergent etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" through a screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the final surface. During an on-site survey your Bishopbriggs screeding specialist will notice what preparation work is needed before any actual screeding work begins.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be put down to protect the final flooring and screed from moisture damage. The damp proof membrane is made from thick polythene sheet and various layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screed.

Another airtight barrier may be required if your home is in a location that is regarded as prone to radon. If radon gas occurs in severe doses then a full ventilation system might be needed under the layer of screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from the ground.

Once these steps have been taken the screeding company will put on a primer or sealer to the prepared floor base. A primer helps with the screed to bond successfully to the base and membranes and different varieties exist according to which screed type is being applied. Devices such as airless sprays are used to apply a sealant or primer, by qualified screeding contractors in Bishopbriggs following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

If you're installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be correctly set out and installed. The underfloor heating system will be carefully positioned and secured firmly to insulation panels to avoid potential movement during screed pouring process. Warmth is spread evenly across a floor area in a professionally fitted under floor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's an excellent choice for many Bishopbriggs home restoration projects.

The screed can now be prepared on site and applied to the base. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the form of screeding that's used. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further 3 days minimum before you are able to lay any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds should be followed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with an even and stable surface.

As soon as the screed has hardened it can be checked for quality to determine its SR standard. The basic SR test uses a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any variations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole area, if there are no deviations greater than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, you've got a top specification SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the whole screed.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10 millimetres or less the screed quality is classed as SR3 and is suitable for utility and garage areas.

If your screed has been installed with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer will be required to perform tests. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will evaluate the screeded surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. An assessment called the drop hammer test is carried out on several areas of the screed and the results documented. The specialist testing and measurement tools mean this can only be undertaken by a qualified structural engineer obeying the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeding Bishopbriggs

When a certain degree of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface you may find that the application of a latex screed will be advantageous. Latex screeds usually comprise 2 parts - a cementitious powder and a latex liquid mixture. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds, since the water that's normally used is replaced with the liquid latex.

This latex compound is used for levelling sub-floors prior to the laying of the final decorative surface. This screed is suitable for use on subfloors of sand/cement, quarry tiles, concrete, wood and asphalt, to provide a durable, smooth surface that's ideal for the application of flooring adhesives. If your sub-floor has any movement in it, this type of floor screed will still provide a crack-free, flexible finish, upon which your final floor coverings can sit.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screeding is being laid on the top of underfloor heating, depths of 50mm-65mm may be desirable, and latex screeds aren't a suitable choice for this purpose.

Screed Floor Removal Bishopbriggs

The removal of screed floors is a vital process in construction and renovation. It is used to strip away existing layers of screed from surfaces. This practice prepares the surface for the new flooring material or other modifications, which is essential for the refurbishment or upgrading of a floor.

The removal of screed floors is an complex task that should only be attempted by professional contractors who've got the necessary expertise. The safe and successful elimination of the old screed is what sets the stage for a fresh start for the floor, and their competence ensures that this happens. This fresh start is immensely significant, whether it is for repairs, upgrades or changes in design.

The process of removing a screed floor involves the use of specialist equipment and techniques that are adapted to the particular requirements of the job. The thickness and type of the existing screed, along with the surface of application, require meticulous evaluation. Minimal disruption to the underlying structure is achieved through such careful attention to detail during removal.

An important benefit of removing screed flooring is that it gives you the opportunity to deal with any underlying issues that may have developed over time. When the old layer of screed is uneven, damaged, or compromised, removing it allows for a thorough examination of the substrate. By performing this examination, flooring specialists can identify and fix any structural issues before installing new flooring materials. (22264 - Screed Removal Bishopbriggs)
