Floor Screeding Didcot Oxfordshire (OX11)

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

Working with a skilled and highly trained specialist will guarantee that you use the correct kind of screed for the room's allocated usage to extend the life of your flooring. Picking the right screeding materials and the method of installation is critical if you want to finish up with a quality and durable finish for your floor.

Before choosing a screeding specialist from the many operating in the Didcot area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quote, and also ensure that you get two or three price quotes. The quote should be based on what is called the Surface Regularity, or SR number. SR1 is the best level, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may be less expensive at first glance, they do not guarantee a perfectly even or flat floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 standard may mean there are flat spots or ridges that might cause problems when installing your final floor surface.

Standard Screeds - A mix of sand and cement which is ideal for regular domestic usage. This mixture uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. After laying a standard flooring screed dries out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement mixture which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. It's mostly used to provide a smooth, level floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a surface finish onto which all forms of flooring materials can be laid. This liquid screed can be poured to a depth of only one millimetre, but still provides a high strength base to take a selection of flooring finishes.

Screeding Quotes Didcot Oxfordshire

Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is necessary. The curing times for these vary according to product guidelines.

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

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to press ahead urgently with the flooring due to time restraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard screeds. These are generally a fibre reinforced kind of screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are used in time dependent flooring projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favourite choice of professional contractors for use with underfloor heating systems. The greater strength and flex provided by the special fibres in the screed mix help protect the resulting floor from thermal cracking and shrinkage. The screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm/day.


Preparation is crucial for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. It is vital that all contaminants such as grease, loose debris, paint or oil is eradicated from the floor surface before laying any screed, because these can affect the adhesion capability that a quality floor screed requires.

Screeding Near Didcot (OX11)

Any cleansing products which are used in this stage should leave no residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry out naturally. At this point cracks need to be mended since these can travel up through a newly laid screed and be visible in the completed surface. A reputable Didcot screeding installer will address these issues during a on-site survey and make certain that all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next steps in the floor screeding process.

To shield the flooring materials and screed layer from moisture rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be laid. There could be 2 or 3 layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

Another air-tight barrier might be necessary if your home is in a location which is known to be prone to radon. If radon gas is present in severe doses then a complete ventilation system may be installed beneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from the ground.

Once the floor base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then put on. Primers assist with the bonding process and are specialist applications matched to the kind of screed that is being applied. These substances need certified contractors to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.

If you're installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be set out and installed. The cabling and heating pipes are securely mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure that they are laid in the correct position. Warmth is spread evenly across a floor area in a professionally fitted under floor heating system, and coupled with it being an effective choice of heating, it is an ideal choice for many Didcot renovation projects.

If you're not putting in underfloor heating the screed can now be prepared on site and laid. Your intended use of the room will assist your screeding specialist on which form of floor screed is ideal for your needs. After the pouring of the screed there is a minimum 24 hours (for quick drying screeds) before you can walk on the surface, and a seventy two hours minimum drying period before the laying of any floor coverings. This timescale is longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's product guidelines must be followed to the letter to create the optimal finish and longevity of the floor.

As soon as the screeding has set it can be quality checked to ascertain its SR level. Through the use of a two metre straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any dips, ridges and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest quality and allows only 3mm of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the entire floor surface.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is ten millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is classified as SR3 and is suitable for utility and garage areas.

If your screed has been laid with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be necessary to carry out the assessment. This assessment will establish the overall strength of the screed and its suitability for the intended use. This should include a drop hammer test which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Any screeding that's got point load requirements must be okayed by a qualified structural engineer observing the BS8204 regulations.

Latex Screeding Didcot

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a bit of flexibility is necessary, it may be an advantage to apply a latex screeding, rather than one with a more rigid finish. Latex floor screeds come in two parts - a bottle and a bag - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cement powder. The liquid latex solution replaces the water that's used in standard screeds, making it quicker drying and more flexible.

Used for levelling sub-floors, this latex product creates a suitable surface for the laying of your chosen floor finishes. This screed is suitable for use on substrate of sand/cement, concrete, asphalt, wood and quarry tiles, to give a resilient, smooth surface that is perfect for the application of adhesives. This type of floor screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there happens to be movement in your sub-floor.

Latex screeds are not appropriate where "floating" screeds are needed, for example when a screed is being laid over a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, such as could be the case when you are screeding over underfloor heating, and depths of 50 to 75 millimetres may be needed.
