Floor Screeding Carluke Scotland (ML8)

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

The skills and training that a qualified screeding technician brings to your project should guarantee a successful result and help in extending the lifetime of your floors. The correct mix of screed and the way it is laid is also important to ensure the final intergrity of your floor.

Make sure you get more than one estimate for your Carluke screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each quotation is for. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the number to keep your eye on when reviewing a quote from Carluke screeding contractors. SR1 is the best standard, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may be less costly at first glance, they don't guarantee a totally even or flat floor surface. This means that you may have to correct any areas that may cause issues when laying your final flooring material.

The regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by any Carluke floor screeding company and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc.) to prove their competence and safe working practices. This accreditation scheme highlights a contractor's ability and training in the application of a manufacturer's products.

Commercial screeders in Carluke will usually undertake larger floor screeding projects in hotels, schools, factories, warehouses, hospitals and shopping centres.


Standard Screeds - A combination of sand and cement which is acceptable for standard residential use. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the normal mixture for standard screed. After being laid a standard flooring screed sets at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is required this solution of latex and cement is used to achieve SR1 quality floor screeding. It's largely used to produce a smooth, level floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. Even with a depth of one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

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

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is necessary on account of building factors, a polymer screed provides a high strength resolution to this situation. Maker's guidelines for drying times differ across the various product ranges.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with under floor heating systems and is the favoured option in such projects. The special fibres in this screed mix enhance overall durability and strength whilst also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. At around 1mm per day, it has the same drying rate to standard screed.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to press ahead urgently with the work on account of time limitations, this screed dries more speedily than standard flooring screeds. Drying at a rate of three to seven millimetres, depending on the specialised mix, they are normally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are perfect for projects that have tight deadlines.


Screeding installers will need to prepare all areas before proceeding with any other work in order to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. Any oil, grease, debris and paint on the existing floor surface can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and must be eliminated.

If any cleaning products are used in this process it is crucial to ensure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the floor surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. At this stage cracks should be mended because these can easily travel up through a newly laid screed and be visible in the completed floor surface. An on-site survey will enable the screeding specialist to highlight this preparation work and finish it before beginning to apply the screed layer.

To protect the screeding layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed. There could be 2 or 3 layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon then an additional barrier is required to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. If radon is present in large amounts then a complete extraction and ventilation system may be installed beneath the screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from the ground.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealer. These primers and sealers will make certain that the screed bonds properly to the floor base and help create a good quality finished floor. On account of their specialist nature, only professional screeders in Carluke are capable of using them safely and correctly and through the use of equipment that's made for this task.

Before the screeding is laid, any under floor heating will now be installed. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and secured firmly to insulation panels to stop any movement in the course of the screed pouring process. Warmth is evenly spread across the floor in a professionally fitted underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient method of heating, it is an ideal choice for most Carluke renovation projects.

If you are not fitting under floor heating the screed will now be prepared on site and laid. The specific requirements of the room will dictate the kind of screeding that's used. After the application of the screed there is a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying screeds) before you're able to walk upon the surface, and a 72 hours minimum curing time for the laying of any floor coverings. This timescale is longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to achieve the optimal finish and longevity of the floor.

Once the screeding has set it can be checked for quality to establish its SR standard. The standard SR test involves the use of a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any disparities of more than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you've got a top specification SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the finish is fairly immaterial SR3 is the classification and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is needed to conduct the testing. Using specialist equipment the engineer will verify the screed strength and suitability of use in a load bearing setting. A drop hammer test is carried out on different areas of the screed and the outcomes documented. Only qualified structural engineers applying the BS8204 regulations are permitted to perform these tests and sign off on the structural integrity of the screeding.
