Your screeding contractor will also notify you if a structural engineer is needed for your project, in order to identify any load bearing, point loadings and flex strength that your screed floor might require to conform with current British Standards and building regulations.

The skills and training that a screeding specialist brings to your project should guarantee a successful end result and help to prolong the lifespan of your floor. The correct blend of screed and the way it is laid is also vital to ensure the ultimate intergrity of your floor surface.

Ensure that you get more than one quotation for your Chinnor based floor screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting each quote. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to look for when getting an estimate from your Chinnor screeding contractor. SR2 and SR3 will be cheaper options, although the finished floor surface may have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect quality of finish. Any error in the final screeding can cause issues with laying flooring due to flat spots, indentations, ridges in the surface.

The regulations and guidelines laid down in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by all Chinnor floor screeding contractors and they must also be certified by the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc.) to confirm their competence and safe working practices. The training and testing of a floor screeding contractor by such manufacturers is emphasised through the accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any flooring project which involves their materials.

For the screeding of floors in warehouses, salons, factories, schools, hospitals and shopping centres, skilled commercial screeders in Chinnor will be needed.


Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential projects where the mixture of sand and cement is okay for basic footfall use. Five parts sand to one part cement is the typical mixture for standard screeds. After laying a standard flooring screed mix dries out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry at a quicker rate and allow you to use the floor area much faster. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm/day, subject to the specialised mix, they're normally a fibre reinforced screed and are suitable for projects which have tight schedules.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with under floor heating and is the recommended choice in such projects. This is due to the increased strength and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the special fibres within the screed. At around 1mm per day, it has an identical drying rate to standard floor screed.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are high or heavy loading on the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds allow for maximum durability and strength.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed due to building factors, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength solution to the problem. The setting times vary according to product guidelines.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement material which can achieve the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. This self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all flooring materials to be laid. Even with a thickness of just 1mm, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.


Good preparation is essential for a top quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. It is important that all contaminants such as debris, paint, oil or grease is eradicated from the base before laying any screed, as these can affect the bonding process that a good quality screed demands.

If any products were used in this process it is crucial to make sure that no residues of soaps, detergents or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" through the screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the finished floor surface. An on-site survey will allow the screeding contractor to pinpoint these preparation areas and finish them before starting to pour the screeding.

Before any screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed to shield the screed and final flooring from dampness. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene may be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation material.

If your home is situated in a place where radon gas is found a supplementary barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from seeping through. This can be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in more serious instances an extraction and ventilation system will need to be installed underneath the floor screed to take away any inflow of radon gas from the ground.

As soon as the base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. A primer helps with the screed bonding process to the base and different varieties exist based on which type of screed is being applied. Devices such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by certified screeding installers in Chinnor following the manufacturer's guidelines.

If you're installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be properly laid out and installed. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and attached firmly to insulation panels to prevent any movement in the course of the screed installation process. When properly installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm a room and decent quality screeding retains its heat, creating an even heat right across the floor surface.

The screed can now be prepared on site and spread onto the floor surface. Your use of the room will help the screeding specialist on what sort of screed is perfect for your requirements. Be aware that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any screeded surfaces and a minimum 72 hours before any floor coverings can be laid. If you're using standard or heavy duty screeds the drying time is longer and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed in order to get the best finish for your floor.

You can check the SR level of the finished screed as soon as it is set enough to walk on. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 mtr straight edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best quality and allows just 3 millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole screeded surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish is not needed. This level allows for a maximium deviation depth of ten millimetres.

If your screed has been installed with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer will be necessary to perform the tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will verify the screeded surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. This can include what's known as a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only experienced structural engineers respecting the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to carry out such tests and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.
