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

The training and skills that a qualified screeding contractor brings to your project should guarantee a successful outcome and help in prolonging the life of your floors. Selecting the correct screeding materials and the method of installation is crucial if you want to end up with a durable and quality finish for your floor surface.

There are numerous screeding companies in the Burnham area so if possible get multiple quotations for your project before choosing a company and know to what standard of finish it's for. The quote may be based on what's known as the SR, or Surface Regularity calculation. SR1 is the highest level, and whilst SR2 and SR3 might be cheaper initially, they don't guarantee a perfectly flat or even surface. This could mean that you may have to correct any patches that might cause problems when putting down your finished flooring solution.

The guidelines and regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by any Burnham floor screeding company and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc.) to substantiate their safe working practices and competence.

For larger screeding projects in warehouses, hotels, hospitals, shopping centres, factories and schools, specialist commercial screeders in Burnham will be needed.


Standard Screeds - This is good for everyday residential usage and is a mix of cement and sand. The ratios involved in standard screeds are five parts sand to one part cement. This five to one ratio standard flooring screed will set hard at a rate of just one millimetre per day after applying.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Designed for maximum strength and durability in areas where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor is necessary.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed due to building requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength resolution to the situation. Polymer screeds are available from many screed manufacturers and due to their varying chemical compositions have specific curing times for each product.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is needed this formula of cement and latex is employed to create SR1 level screed flooring. Typically used to finish off a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like tiles over it. This liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of just 1mm, but still provides a high strength base for a selection of flooring materials.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry at a quicker rate and allow you to use the floor area much faster. They're typically a fibre reinforced type of screed that dries out at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are used in time-sensitive flooring projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use over the top of under floor heating. This is due to the increased strength and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the fibres within the screed. It sets at the same rate as a standard screed, at about 1mm per day.


Preparation is crucial for a quality finished screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The original floor surfaces should be cleaned to eliminate any grease, oil, paint and debris which can adversely affect the bond of the screed.

Screeding Near Burnham (SL2)

If cleaning products have been used it's vital to remove any traces of soap etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. At this point cracks need to be repaired since these can easily travel up through a laid screed and be visible in the finished surface. An experienced Burnham screeding contractor will pick up on such aspects during a on-site survey and ensure all preparations are completed before applying the next stages of the floor screeding process.

To shield the flooring materials and screeding layer from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be laid. The damp proof membrane is made of thick polythene and different layers could be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

An additional airtight barrier might be required if your home is in an area that is regarded as prone to radon gas. A simple airtight membrane could be sufficient in locations with low radon measurements, but in more serious situations there might have to be a more sophisticated ventilation and extraction system to take away any ground penetrating radon.

The final step of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealant. These primers and sealers will ensure that the screed bonds properly to the base surface and help create a good quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by certified screeding contractors in Burnham observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

Now is the time that under floor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. Insulation panels can be put in position and the heating pipes and cabling will be firmly attached so there's no movement whilst the screed is being applied. Warmth is spread evenly across the floor in a professionally installed underfloor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient method of heating, it is an excellent choice for most Burnham renovation projects.

The screeding can now be prepared on site and poured onto the floor surface. The requirements of the room will dictate the form of screeding that is used. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 3 days minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. If you're looking to end up with a nicely finished and hard-wearing floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where the timescale will be increased.

Once the screeding has set it can be checked for quality to establish the SR level. The test involves using a 2 mtr long straight-edge laid on the surface and any deviations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the whole screed area, if there aren't any disparities greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - If the floor has a deviation from the straight-edge of five millimetres or less it is SR2 level and is the normal standard for commercial and industrial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is ten millimetres or less the screeding quality is classed as SR3 and is fine for garage and utility areas.

There might also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will verify the screeded surface strength and viability of use in a load bearing setting. This will include what is known as a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. The precise measurement and testing tools involved mean this can only be conducted by a fully qualified structural engineer applying the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screed Burnham

When the surface of a floor needs a certain amount of flexibility, it is better to use a latex self-levelling floor screed. Latex floor screeds usually comprise 2 parts - a cement-based powder, and a liquid latex mixture. The latex liquid additive actually replaces the water which would typically be used for mixing screed, and is much more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed.

This latex compound is used for levelling-out subfloors prior to the laying of your chosen decorative surface. Appropriate for sub-floors of concrete, stone tiles, wood, asphalt and sand/cement, this gives the ideal surface for the application of adhesives which is also smooth and resilient. Even where there's a bit of movement on your sub-floor, this type of screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish.

When a screed is being laid on top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex flooring screeds are not a suitable choice, because in cases like this (typically when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you'll likely require a thickness of 50mm-75mm.
