If any products were used in this process it is vital to ensure that no residues of soaps, detergents or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally.

During a site survey the screeding specialist will ascertain what preparation work is required before starting to work on the actual screeding.

To shield the flooring materials and screeding layer from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed. The DPM is made out of thick polythene and various layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

A further air-tight barrier might be necessary if your home or business premises is in an area which is regarded as prone to radon gas. This could be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in more serious situations an extraction and ventilation system is installed under the floor screed to take away any influx of radon gas from the ground.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeders will apply a primer or sealer to the prepared base. Sealers and primers help with the bonding process and are special applications matched to the type of screed that's being used. Owing to their specialist nature, only certified screeders in Dinnington are capable of using them safely and correctly and through the use of equipment that is made for this task.

For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds should be followed in order to achieve a quality finish and provide an even and stable surface.

The SR standard of your screeding can be checked once it has solidified enough to be walked upon. The test involves using a 2 metre long straight-edge laid down upon the surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there are no deviations greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is comparatively inconsequential the SR3 is the specification and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

There might also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to do a soundness test. Using specialist equipment the engineer will verify the screeding strength and viability of use in a load bearing environment. This will include what is known as a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only trained structural engineers applying the BS8204 guidelines are permitted to carry out such tests and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.
