It might be necessary, based on the intended use of the area in question, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform with building regulations on point loadings, load requirements and flex strength of the screed floor.

Working with a qualified and skilled contractor will ensure that you get the proper type of screed for the room's proposed usage and get the optimum lifespan out of your floor. There are numerous kinds of floor screed and picking the correct mix and installation process is essential to create a quality floor that is both fit for purpose and durable.

Before deciding upon a floor screeding company from the many based in the Bolsover area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their price quote, and also ensure you get two or three quotes. For domestic homes a quote will generally be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) level of SR1 or SR2. Each of the 3 SR levels offer different levels of finish, with SR1 being the best, with the lowest amount of deviation over the area. An SR2 or SR3 standard may mean there will be flat spots or ridges that might cause issues when laying your final flooring materials.

British Standards BS8204 lays out the regulations and guidelines that all Bolsover screeding contractors are required to follow, and if working with specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc), they must be accredited by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. A contractor holding accreditation indicates that they've been trained and assessed in the use of these screeding products and can provide a high standard of service in all areas of their installation.

Commercial screeders in Bolsover will generally undertake screeding projects in shops, hospitals, schools, factories, warehouses and restaurants.


Standard Screeds - A combination of cement and sand which is okay for regular domestic usage. The ratios involved are five parts sand to one part cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of 1mm per day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with underfloor heating systems and is the preferred option in such projects. The improved flex and strength provided by the special fibres in this screed mix help protect the flooring from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. At around 1mm per day, it has a similar curing rate to standard screed.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to use the area as soon as possible a fast drying screed can be used. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are appropriate for a whole host of flooring projects where the speedier drying rate of three to seven millimetres is a welcome advantage.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed due to building requirements, a polymer screed offers a high strength resolution to this problem. Polymer screeds are made by a number of manufacturers and because of their diverse chemical compositions have distinct curing times for each individual product.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum durability and strength in areas where traffic is expected to be high or specific loading of the floor is required.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex compound. This is mostly used to provide a smooth, level floor over the top of a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a surface onto which all kinds of flooring materials can be laid. Even with a thickness of only 1mm, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.

Screeding Quotes Bolsover Derbyshire


To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time should be spent on fully preparing the area prior to any screeding material being poured. Any debris, grease, paint and oil on the original floor surface can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and should be eradicated.

Screeding Near Bolsover (S44)

If cleansing products were used it is crucial to remove any traces of soap, detergent etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. It's essential to fix any crevices or cracks in the base to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" up into your newly screeded floor. An experienced Bolsover screeding contractor will take note of these aspects during the site survey and make certain all preparations are completed before moving on to the next stages of the screeding process.

Before the screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed to protect the screed and final flooring from moisture. There could be 2 or 3 layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

A supplementary airtight barrier might be needed if your property is in an area that's regarded as prone to radon. An air-tight membrane might be sufficient in locations with relatively low levels of radon, but in more serious situations there may have to be a more sophisticated extraction system to take away any ground penetrating radon.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a sealant or primer. These primers and sealers will make certain that the screed bonds perfectly to the base surface and help to create a good quality finished floor. Owing to their special nature, only experienced screeding contractors in Bolsover should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and through the use of bespoke equipment for the task.

If you are going to be installing underfloor heating, now is the time that it will need to be correctly laid out and installed. Insulation panels can be laid out and the cables and heating pipes will be firmly attached so there's no movement whilst the screed is being applied. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system should provide even warmth in all areas of the floor.

The screed can now be prepared in situ and applied to the floor surface. Your proposed use of the room will assist your screeding specialist on what type of floor screed is ideal for your needs. 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 can lay any flooring materials. If you are hoping to wind up with a nicely finished and long-lasting floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to standard and heavy duty screeds where this time period will be increased.

As soon as the screed has solidified it can be checked for quality to establish the SR standard. Using a 2m straight-edge the surface is checked for any ridges, deviations and dips in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less as measured across the entire floor area shows your screed to be of the highest quality and is classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the floor has a deviation from the straight-edge of five millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the finish is fairly inconsequential SR3 is the specification and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is needed to perform the testing. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will assess the screed surface strength and suitability of use in a load bearing environment. This will include what's known as a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. Any screed flooring that has load bearing requirements must be okayed by a trained structural engineer obeying the BS8204 regulations.

Latex Screed Bolsover

It may be an advantage to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a bit of flexibility is necessary in the surface of a floor. A latex floor screed comes in 2 parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cemetitious powder, and the bottle containing a liquid latex additive. The liquid latex part takes the place of the water that's used in other types of screed, making it quicker drying and more flexible.

This latex screed is used to level-out a sub-floor prior to the final decorative surface being laid. This screeding is appropriate for sub-floors made from quarry tiles, sand/cement, asphalt, wood or concrete, is perfect for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a smooth, resilient surface. This latex floor screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there's a bit of movement in your subfloor.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when screeding is being laid over the top of underfloor heating, thicknesses of 50mm-65mm may be needed, and latex screeds aren't appropriate in this instance.
