It may be a requirement, according to the intended use of the area, for a structural engineering survey to conform with building regulations on flex strength, load bearing and point loadings of the screed floor.

Working with a skilled and highly trained contractor will guarantee that you use the right sort of screed for the room's anticipated purpose to extend the life of your flooring. The correct blend of screed and the methods used for laying it are also vital to ensure the ultimate quality of your floor surface.

Make sure that you get 2 or 3 quotations for your Cirencester screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each quotation is for. The quotation should be based on what is called the SR, or Surface Regularity figure. Each of the 3 SR levels deliver different standards of finish, with SR1 offering the highest, with the smallest amount of deviation over the surface area. This means you may need to fix any patches that may cause issues when laying your finished flooring solution.

British Standards BS8204 lays out the regulations and guidelines that all Cirencester screeding companies are required to follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc), they should be accredited by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. The training and assessment of a screeding contractor by a manufacturer is highlighted by the use of this accreditation scheme, and guarantees safe working practices and reliability on any project which involves their materials.

Commercial screeders in Cirencester will generally undertake larger screeding projects in schools, shops, factories, warehouses, hospitals and salons.


Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential flooring projects where the mixture of cement and sand is ideal for standard floor traffic use. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. Once laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of one millimetre each day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex material. Largely used to improve a poor substrate level or damaged floor in order to lay a brand new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks on top of it. The liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of only one millimetre, but will still provide a strong surface for a varied selection of flooring finishes.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum durability and strength on floors where traffic is expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is required.

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 offered by the fibres within the screed mix. The screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm/day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry quickly and allow you to use the screeded area much sooner. The vast majority of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are perfect for a wide array of flooring projects where the speedier curing rate of 3-7mm is a big advantage.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is necessary. Polymer screeds are made by a number of manufacturers and owing to their different chemical compositions have distinct curing times for each individual product.


Screeding companies will need to carefully prepare all areas before any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It's important that any contaminants such as debris, grease, paint or oil is removed from the base before laying any screed, as these can affect the bonding capability that a quality floor screed demands.

Screeding Near Cirencester (GL7)

If cleansing products have been used it's essential to remove any traces of detergent, soap etc, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. At this point any cracks should be repaired because these can easily travel up through a laid screed and be visible in the finished surface. A site survey will enable the screeding specialist to take note of this preparation work and complete it before starting to apply the screed layer.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down after the preparation work has been concluded to stop ground moisture affecting the screed and floor materials. There might be two or three layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

An additional airtight barrier could be needed if your home is in a location that's known to be susceptible to radon gas emissions. An airtight membrane could be suitable in areas with relatively low radon measurements, but in more extreme cases there may have to be a more sophisticated ventilation and extraction system to block any harmful radon gases.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a sealer or primer. Primers help the bonding process and are special applications according to the sort of screed being applied. Devices such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, by certified screeding contractors in Cirencester sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

This is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct manner. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and firmly attached to insulation panels to avoid any movement in the course of the screed pouring. Warmth will be evenly spread across the floor in an expertly fitted under floor heating system, and with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's an ideal choice for the majority of Cirencester renovation projects.

Obviously, if you are not installing under floor heating, you can skip this step and apply the floor screed. Your intended use of the room will help the screeding contractor on what kind of screed is ideal for your requirements. Bear in mind that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk on any screeded surfaces and a minimum 3 days before any floor coverings can be laid. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds should be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even floor surface.

The SR level of your screed can be confirmed once it's solidified sufficiently to be stepped onto. The test involves using a two metre long straight-edge laid on the surface and any variations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Deviations of three millimetres or less as measured across the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and is classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the entire floor surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect finish isn't necessary. This classification can have a maximum permissible deviation of ten millimetres.

If your screed floor has been installed with specific loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be needed to perform the assessment. This assessment will establish the overall strength of the screed surface and its viability for the proposed use. A "drop hammer test" will be carried out at various areas on the screed layer and the outcomes noted. Any screeding that's got load bearing requirements must be okayed by a qualified structural engineer respecting the BS8204 regulations.

Latex Floor Screed Cirencester

When the nature of your floor's surface means that a degree of flexibility is required, it may be advantageous to use a latex self-levelling floor screed, rather than one with a rigid finish. Latex floor screeds come in two parts - a bottle and a bag - with the bottle containing liquid latex and the bag containing a cement powder. The liquid latex additive takes the place of the water that is used in standard screeds, making it quicker drying and more flexible.

This latex screed is used to level-out a sub-floor prior to the final decorative surface being installed. This is suitable for use on subfloors of concrete, stone tiles, sand/cement, wood and asphalt, to provide a smooth and resilient surface which is perfect for the application of flooring adhesives. Even where there happens to be a bit of movement in your subfloor, this latex screed will provide a flexible, crack-free finish.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when a screed is being laid on top of a layer of thermal or acoustic insulation, thicknesses of 50 to 75 millimetres may be necessary, and latex floor screeds are not suitable for this purpose.
