It may be a requirement, contingent on the proposed use of the room, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform to building regulations on flex strength, load requirements and point loadings of the screed floor.

The training and skills that a qualified screeding specialist brings to your project should guarantee a high quality end result and help to prolong the lifespan of your floors. There are many types of screeding and picking the appropriate mix and laying technique is critical if you are to achieve a high quality floor which is hard-wearing and fit for purpose.

Before deciding on a screeding specialist from any based in the Coatbridge area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their quote, and also ensure that you get multiple estimates. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to watch out for when getting an estimate from Coatbridge screeding contractors. SR1 is the highest standard, and whilst SR2 and SR3 might seem less costly at first glance, they don't guarantee a perfectly flat or even floor surface. Any errors in the screeding (as might arise with SR2 or SR3) may cause issues with laying flooring owing to flat spots, ridges, indentations in the floor surface.

Standard Screeds - This is ideal for normal residential use and is a mix of sand and cement. This mix comprises a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use over the top of under floor heating. The fibres in the screed mix increase it's strength and durability while also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to move forward urgently with the work because of time restraints, these screeds dry much faster than standard screeds. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, depending on the mixture, they are typically a fibre reinforced screed and are great for flooring projects that have tight schedules.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex formula. Primarily used to finish off a poor substrate level or damaged floor in order to lay a new flooring surface, like vinyl planks on top of it. This liquid screed can be poured to a depth of just 1mm, but will still provide a high strength base for a wide variety of flooring materials.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a reduced thickness. The drying times for these vary in accordance with product guidelines.


To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish that is durable and hard wearing, time should be spent on carefully preparing the area before any screeding material is poured. The existing floor surface should be cleaned to eliminate any grease, debris, oil and paint which might affect the adhesion of the screed.

Screeding Near Coatbridge (ML5)

Any cleaning products that are used during this phase should leave no residues, and the floor surface must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. It's necessary to mend any cracks in the surface to prevent them being visible and "travelling" up into the freshly screeded floor. An on-site survey will enable your Coatbridge screeding company to take note of these preparation areas and complete them before commencing to pour the screeding layer.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down after the preparation work has been completed to stop ground dampness affecting the flooring materials and screed. The damp proof membrane is made of thick polythene and different layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

An additional air-tight barrier may be necessary if your building is in a location that's known to be susceptible to radon. If radon gas occurs in severe doses then a complete ventilation and extraction system might be needed under the layer of screed which will remove any gases that might seep in from the ground.

The final phase of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealer. These primers and sealers will ensure that the screed bonds properly to the base surface and help produce a top quality finished floor. These products require certified tradesmen to apply them in the right proportions by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.

If you are installing underfloor heating, now is the time that it will need to be correctly laid out and installed. Insulation panels can be laid out and the heating pipes and cabling will be firmly attached to prevent any movement whilst the screed is being poured. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should provide even warmth across the floor area.

If you're not installing underfloor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and laid. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the type of screeding that is used. After the application of the screed there's a minimum twenty four hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a 72 hour minimum drying period before the laying of any floor coverings. If you are hoping to end up with a properly finished and long-lasting floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where the time period will be increased.

The SR standard of your screed can be ascertained once it has hardened sufficiently to be stepped onto. The standard SR test uses a 2 mtr straight edge to check for any variations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best specification and allows just 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor has a deviation from the straight-edge of five millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 level and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial floors.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect quality finish isn't necessary. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation of ten millimetres.

If your screed has been laid with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be necessary to carry out the tests. The testing will ensure your new screed surface is suitable for the load point requirements specified in the original site survey. This should include a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Any screed floor that's got load bearing requirements must be approved by a fully qualified structural engineer observing the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeding Coatbridge

When a bit of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface you may find that the use of a latex screeding will be best. Latex floor screeds generally comprise two parts - a cementitious powder and a liquid latex additive. The latex liquid additive replaces the water that would normally be used in a screed mix, and is far more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds.

Used for levelling-out subfloors, this latex product creates a surface for the laying of the final floor finishes. This screeding is suitable for use on sub-floors of sand/cement, wood, quarry tiles, asphalt and concrete, to provide a smooth and resilient surface that is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives. If your subfloor has any movement in it, this type of latex floor screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish, on which your chosen floor coverings can sit.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid over a membrane of acoustic or thermal insulation, screed depths of 50 to 65 millimetres may be needed, and latex floor screeds aren't appropriate for this purpose.
