The screeding contractor will also tell you if a structural engineer is required for your undertaking, to identify point loadings, load bearing and flex strength that your screed floor may require to conform with British Standards and building regulations.

A qualified and skilled work force is essential to a successful result and will extend the life of your floor by using the right kind of screed for your room's allocated purpose. A correct mix of screed and the techniques used in laying it are also important to ensure the ultimate intergrity of your floor surface.

Make certain that you get at least 2 or 3 estimates for your Chapel-En-le-Frith floor screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each price quote is for. For residential homes an estimate will usually be given for a Surface Regularity (SR) level of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the highest standard, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may seem less costly at first glance, they don't guarantee a totally flat or even floor surface. Any errors in the screeding (as might arise with SR2 or SR3) may cause problems in laying flooring owing to ridges, indentations, flat spots in the floor surface.

The guidelines and regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 must be followed by any Chapel-En-le-Frith floor screeding contractor and they must also be accredited by the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc.) to verify their safe working practices and competence. This accreditation scheme showcases a firm's training and high quality performance in the use of a manufacturer's product.

Chapel-En-le-Frith commercial screeders may be involved in screeding floors in pubs, schools, hospitals, warehouses, factories and shopping centres.


Standard Screeds - This is perfect for basic residential usage and is a mixture of sand and cement. The standard screed is a mix of five parts sand to one of cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of one millimetre each day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with under floor heating systems and is the advised option in these projects. The improved strength and flexibility offered by the fibres in the screed help protect the floor from thermal cracking and shrinkage. At approximately one millimetre per day, it has an identical setting rate to standard floor screed.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where the maximum possible strength and durability is vital.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is needed on account of construction factors, a polymer screed offers a high strength solution to the situation. Because of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying drying times which can be verified by checking manufacturer's product guidelines.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A cement and latex mixture which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. It is primarily used to provide a smooth, level floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. The liquid screed can be poured to a depth of just 1mm, but will still provide a high strength surface to take a varied selection of flooring finishes.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to use the floor as soon as possible a fast drying screed may be used. They're usually a fibre reinforced type of screed which can dry at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are employed in time-sensitive projects.


Preparation is vital for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. The existing floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any debris, oil, grease and paint that might adversely affect the bond of the screed.

Screeding Near Chapel-En-le-Frith (SK23)

If cleaning products have been used it is vital to remove any traces of soap or detergent, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. At this stage cracks need to be repaired since these can travel up through your newly laid screed and be reflected in the completed surface. An on-site survey will enable the screeding specialist to pinpoint these preparation areas and finish them before starting to pour the screeding layer.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be applied after the preparation work has been completed to stop ground moisture affecting the flooring materials and screed. Different thicknesses of special polythene might be used as a DPM and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation materials.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon gas then a further barrier is necessary to stop the gas from entering via the ground. This could be just a simple airtight membrane, or in more serious instances a ventilation and extraction system will be installed under the floor screed to extract any inflow of air and gas from ground level.

The final phase of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealer. These primers and sealers will ensure the screed bonds successfully to the base surface and help produce a good quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays are used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by experienced screeding contractors in Chapel-En-le-Frith sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.

If required, this is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. The cabling and heating pipes are securely attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make certain they are laid in the correct position. When expertly installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and decent quality screeding will retain its heat, generating an even level of warmth right across the floor.

The screeding can now be prepared on site and applied to the floor surface. Your proposed use of the room will assist your screeding contractor on which form of screed is ideal for your needs. Remember that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk on any screeded surfaces and at least three days before any flooring materials can be fitted. If you are aiming to wind up with a properly finished and hard-wearing floor surface you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where this timescale will be longer.

You can test the SR standard of the finished screed once it is solidified enough for walking on. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 metre straight edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less being measured across the whole floor area shows your screed to be of the best quality and specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screeded surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5 millimetres or less it is SR2 quality and is the standard for industrial and commercial floors.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the finish is relatively inconsequential the SR3 is the standard and should have a maximum deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is required to perform the testing. This assessment will ascertain the strength of the screeding and the suitability for its intended use. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" is conducted at several areas on the screed and the results recorded. The precise testing and measurement tools mean that this can only be conducted by a certified structural engineer respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screeds Chapel-En-le-Frith

When a certain amount of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface you might find that the use of a latex self-levelling screed will be an advantage. Latex screeds come in two parts - a bottle and a bag - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cement based powder. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed, as the water that's normally used is exchanged for the liquid latex.

Used for levelling sub-floors, this latex compound creates a surface for the laying of the final floor finish. This screeding is appropriate for use on subfloors of asphalt, concrete, quarry tiles, sand/cement and wood, to give a resilient, smooth surface that's perfect for the application of adhesives. This type of latex screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there is a bit of movement in your sub-floor.

With "floating" screeds, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, latex floor screeds won't be appropriate. Floating screeds with a thickness of 50 to 65 millimetres are frequently used over underfloor heating.
