A professional screeding company will also inform you if a structural engineer is required for your project, in order to check on load bearing, flex strength and point loadings that your flooring might require to conform with British Standards and building regulations.

The training and skills that a certified screeding specialist brings to your project should guarantee a successful outcome and help to lengthen the life of your floors. There are many different kinds of screeding and choosing the correct mix and laying process is crucial if you are to create a top quality floor that is both hard-wearing and fit for purpose.

Before deciding upon a screeding contractor from any operating in the Didcot area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their estimate, and also make sure that you get two or three quotes. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the number to watch out for when getting a quotation from your Didcot screeding contractor. Each of the three SR levels deliver different qualities of finish, with SR1 offering the highest quality, with the smallest amount of deviation over the area of the floor. An SR2 or SR3 level could mean there are ridges or flat spots that might cause issues when laying your final flooring materials.

The guidelines and regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by all Didcot floor screeding contractors and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc.) to demonstrate their competence and safe working practices. The training and testing of a floor screeding company by such manufacturers is highlighted through the accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any flooring project which involves their materials.

Didcot commercial screeders could be involved in the screeding of floors in warehouses, hospitals, hotels, schools, shopping centres and factories.


Standard Screeds - This is perfect for regular residential usage and is a blend of sand and cement. This mixture comprises a five to one ratio of sand to cement. Once laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of one millimetre per day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are expected to be high or heavy loading of the floor is required, heavy duty screeds provide maximum strength and durability.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement material which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. Typically used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks over it. They can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Didcot. The special fibres in this screed mix enhance it's durability and strength whilst also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. At about one millimetre per day, it has the same setting rate to standard floor screed.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is necessary on account of construction factors, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to this problem. Polymer screeds are made by a number of screed manufacturers and due to their diverse chemical compositions have specific curing times for each individual product.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to progress urgently with the work owing to time constraints, these screeds dry more speedily than standard flooring screeds. Drying at a rate of three to seven millimetres, depending on the mixture, they're generally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are ideal for flooring projects that have tight schedules.

Screeding installers will need to prepare the area prior to any other work in order to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. It is important that all contaminants such as debris, paint, grease or oil is removed from the floor surface before pouring any screed, as these can affect the adhesion process that a quality screed demands.

If cleansing products have been used it's crucial to remove any remnants of soap etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. It is vital to fix any cracks or crevices in the base to prevent them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into your freshly screeded floor. During an on-site survey the screeding contractor will be able to see what preparations are necessary before starting to work on the screeding.

Before any screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be put down to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture. The damp proof membrane is made out of thick polythene sheeting and various layers could be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

If your house is situated in a place where radon gas is present an additional barrier layer is essential to prevent radon gas from seeping through. This could be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in more serious cases a ventilation system is installed beneath the screed to draw out any inflow of radon gas from the ground.

Once the floor base has been properly prepared and any membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. A primer helps with the screed to bond to the base and different types exist according to which type of screed is being applied. These substances require trained tradesmen to apply them in the right proportions by using custom-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

If required, this is the time that under floor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. The underfloor heating system will be carefully positioned and attached firmly to insulation panels to stop potential movement during screed pouring. When skillfully installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm a room and good quality screed will retain its heat, producing an even heat right across the floor surface.

The screeding can now be prepared in situ and spread onto the base. Your intended use of the room will help the screeding contractor on what type of floor screed is best for your needs. For quick drying screeds there'll be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before any flooring material can be applied. If you're aiming to wind up with a nicely finished and durable floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to heavy duty and standard screeds where the waiting period will be increased.

The SR level of your screeding can be verified once it has set sufficiently to be walked on. The standard SR test uses a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there are no disparities of more than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole screeded floor.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10mm or less the quality of the screeding is specified as SR3 and is the standard required for utility and garage areas.

If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is required to carry out the testing. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will assess the screeded surface strength and suitability of use in a load bearing environment. The screed could be given a drop hammer test to assess flexibility and strength at distinct points. Only qualified structural engineers observing the BS8204 regulations are permitted to conduct such tests and sign off on the structural safety of the screeding.

Latex Floor Screed Didcot

When a degree of flexibility is required in a floor's surface you might find that using a latex floor screed will be advantageous. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cement powder, and the bottle containing a liquid latex mixture. The latex liquid part actually replaces the water that would normally be used for mixing floor screed, and is more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds.

This latex compound is used for levelling-out sub-floors prior to the laying of the final decorative covering. This screed is appropriate for substrate made of sand/cement, concrete, quarry tiles, asphalt or wood, is perfect for the application of adhesives and gives a durable and smooth surface. This type of floor screed will produce a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there happens to be a bit of movement in your sub-floor.

When a screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex floor screeds are not a suitable choice, because in this case (normally when screeding over underfloor heating), you will probably require a screed thickness of 50mm-65mm.
