Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are required, by a latex and cement mixture. Mostly used to finalise a poor substrate level or damaged floor in order to lay a brand new flooring surface, like tiles over it.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that's designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where maximum durability and strength is very important.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use on top of underfloor heating.

If any products are used in this process it's important to make sure that no residues of soaps, detergents or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. It's vital to fix any cracks in the surface to avoid them being visible and "travelling" upwards into the newly screeded floor. During an on-site survey your Coningsby screeding installer will be able to see what preparation work is needed before any actual screeding work begins.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed once the preparation work has been done to stop ground dampness affecting the flooring materials and screeding. Different thicknesses of polythene sheets may be used as a damp proof membrane and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon gas then a further barrier is essential to stop this harmful gas from entering via the ground. An air-tight membrane may be suitable in areas with low radon emissions, but in more serious cases there may have to be a more complex extraction system to take away any harmful radon gases.

As soon as the floor base has been properly prepared and all membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. Primers and sealers assist with the bonding process and are specialist applications specifically designed for the sort of screed that's being applied. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, by experienced screeding installers in Coningsby sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before any screed can be 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 potential movement in the course of the screed application. Warmth is spread evenly across the floor in a skillfully fitted under floor heating system, and coupled with it being an effective method of heating, it is an ideal choice for most Coningsby home renovation projects.

If you aren't fitting underfloor heating the screed can now be prepared on site and poured. Your proposed use of the room will assist the screeding contractor on which form of floor screed is perfect for your needs. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least a 24 hour delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further 72 hours minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds should be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and even surface.

Once the screed has hardened it can be quality checked to confirm its SR standard. The test involves the use of a two metre straight edge laid on the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the entire screed area, if there aren't any disparities greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor deviates from the straight edge by 5mm or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a quality finish is not needed. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10mm.

If your screed floor has been laid with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer will be required to carry out tests. This assessment will ascertain the strength of the screed surface and its suitability for the proposed use. The screeding could be subjected to what's known as a "drop hammer test" to determine flexibility and strength in different areas. The precise testing and measurement tools required mean this can only be conducted by a fully qualified structural engineer applying the BS8204 guidelines.
