Before you can lay a suitable floor covering, be it carpet, wood or tile, the surface of the floor should be as flat as is possible; this is why floor screeding is sometimes essential. If you want your floors to last a long time then floor screeding is the most important factor in any building or renovation project.

They will also assess if a structural engineer is necessary to make certain that any load bearing, point loadings and flex strength are followed as set out in the building regulations.

Bringing in a skilled and qualified specialist will guarantee that you get the correct type of screed for the room's intended usage to extend the lifetime of your flooring. A correct mix of screed and the methods used in laying it are also critical to guarantee the final intergrity of your floor surface.

There are a number of screeding specialists in the Cullompton area so make sure you get multiple quotes for your screeding project before choosing a company and know to what standard of finish it's for. The estimate could be based on what is called the SR, or Surface Regularity calculation. SR2 and SR3 might be more affordable options, although the finished floor surface could have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect finish. An SR2 or SR3 standard might mean there will be flat spots or ridges that could cause problems when putting down your final floor surface.

The regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by any Cullompton floor screeding company and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc.) to prove their safe working practices and competence. This accreditation program showcases a firm's training and ability in the use of a manufacturer's products.

For larger screeding projects in schools, warehouses, factories, shopping centres, hospitals and pubs, skilled commercial screeders in Cullompton will be needed.


Standard Screeds - This is perfect for normal domestic use and comprises a blend of sand and cement. The standard screed is a mix of five parts sand to one of cement. After being laid a standard screed mix dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured option where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Cullompton. The increased flexibility and strength offered by the fibres in this screed mix help protect the floor from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. It's got a setting rate of 1mm per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to use the area in question as soon as possible a fast drying screed may be used. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, determined by the mixture, they're normally a fibre reinforced screed and are perfect for flooring projects that have tight schedules.

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

Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is required. Polymer screeds are made by a number of manufacturers and due to their different chemical compositions have specific setting times for each individual product.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is needed this blend of cement and latex is used to achieve SR1 quality screed flooring. It's mainly needed to provide a clean, smooth floor over the top of a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a surface finish onto which all forms of flooring materials can be laid. They can be as little as 1mm thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Screeding Quotes Cullompton Devon


To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish which is durable and hard wearing, time should be devoted to fully preparing the area before any screeding material is poured. Any oil, paint, debris and grease on the original floor level can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and must be removed.

If cleansing products have been used it is important to remove any traces of soap etc, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. At this point any cracks need to be repaired because these can travel up through a laid screed and be visible in the completed surface. A site survey will allow your Cullompton screeding contractor to take note of these preparation areas and finish them before beginning to apply the screed layer.

Before the screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed to shield the screed and final flooring from moisture. The damp proof membrane is made of thick polythene sheeting and various layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

A further airtight barrier may be necessary if your building is in an area which is known to be prone to radon gas. A simple air-tight membrane may be suitable in locations with low emissions of radon, but in more serious situations there might have to be a more complex ventilation and extraction system to remove any ground penetrating radon gases.

As soon as the floor base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. These primers and sealers will make sure that the screed bonds properly to the floor base and help to produce a high quality finished floor. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, by professional screeding installers in Cullompton following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

If you are installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be correctly set out and installed. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and firmly secured to insulation panels to stop potential movement during screed application. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system will provide even level of warmth across the floor area.

Obviously, if you aren't putting in underfloor heating, you simply skip this stage and get on with applying the floor screed. Your screeding contractor will give you advice on which screed type is suitable for your needs, in line with your proposed use of the room area. For quick drying screeds there'll be at least twenty four hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. If you are laying heavy duty or standard screeds the drying time is longer and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed so as to get the best finish for your floor.

You can assess the SR standard of the finished screed once it is hardened enough for walking on. The basic SR test uses a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of three millimetres or less being measured over the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the highest quality and classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10mm or less the screeding quality is classed as SR3 and is the standard required for utility and garage areas.

If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is needed to conduct the testing. The testing will ensure your newly laid screeded surface is suitable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the site survey. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" is carried out on different areas of the screed and the results documented. Any screed floor that has point load requirements must be sanctioned by a trained structural engineer heeding the BS8204 regulations.
