To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish which is durable and hard wearing, time must be spent on fully preparing the area before any screed is laid. The original floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eradicate any debris, paint, oil and grease that might affect the adhesion of the screed.

If cleaning products were used it's crucial to remove any remnants of soap or detergent, and leave the surface to dry naturally. It's necessary to mend any cracks in the floor surface to stop them being mirrored and "travelling" up into the freshly screeded floor. During a site survey the screeding installer will notice what preparations are needed before any actual screeding begins.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be put down to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture. The damp proof membrane is made of thick polythene and different layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

Another airtight barrier might be necessary if your house is in an area which is regarded as prone to radon gas. If radon occurs in severe doses then a complete ventilation and extraction system might be needed underneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that are seeping in from the ground.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeding company will put on a primer or sealant to the prepared floor base. A primer helps with the screed to bond successfully to the base and membranes and different varieties exist based on which type of screed is being used. Devices such as airless sprays can be used to apply a primer or sealant, by qualified screeding installers in Bottesford sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before the screeding can be laid, any under floor heating (if required) will now set out and installed. Insulation panels can be put in position and the heating pipes and wires will be securely mounted so there's no movement while the screed is applied. When professionally installed an under floor heating system is an excellent way to warm a room and high quality screed retains its heat, producing an even level of warmth right across the floor.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared on site and spread onto the floor base. The particular requirements of the room will determine the type of screeding used. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it can be walked over, and a further Three days minimum before any flooring material can be applied. Such time periods will be increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's instructions should be followed to create the best finish and durability of the floor.

Once the screeding has solidified it can be checked for quality to ascertain the SR standard. Through the use of a two metre straight-edge the surface is examined for any deviations, dips and ridges in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less being measured over the entire floor area shows your screeding to be of the finest quality and is classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screeded surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of five millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10mm or less the screeding quality is classed as SR3 and is fine for garage and utility areas.

If your screed has been laid with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer is going to be needed to conduct the assessment. This test will ascertain the strength of the screeded surface and its viability for the intended use. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" will be performed on various areas of the screed and the results documented. The precise measurement and testing tools needed mean that this can only be undertaken by a fully qualified structural engineer heeding the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.
