It might be a requirement, contingent on the intended use of the area in question, for a structural engineering survey to conform to building regulations on load requirements, flex strength and point loadings of the screed floor.

Skilled and qualified tradespeople are imperative for a successful result and will extend the lifespan of your floor by making use of the right form of screed for the proposed purpose of your room. Choosing the correct screeding materials and the method of installation is critical if you want to finish up with a quality and durable finish for your floor surface.

Before deciding on a screeding contractor from any operating in the Earls Barton area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their estimate, and also make sure that you get two or three price quotes. For residential properties a quote will usually be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) calculation of SR1 or SR2. SR2 and SR3 might be cheaper options, although the finished floor surface may have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect quality of finish. Any error in the final screeding can cause problems in laying flooring owing to indentations, ridges, flat spots in the surface.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A cement and latex material which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. Mostly used to improve a poor substrate level or damaged floor in order to lay a new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks over it. This liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of only 1mm, but will still provide a high strength surface for a varied selection of flooring materials.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is necessary due to building requirements, a polymer screed provides a high strength resolution to this problem. The drying times vary according to proprietary product guidelines.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to move forward urgently with the flooring on account of time limitations, these screeds dry much quicker than standard flooring screeds. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are ideal for a whole host of flooring projects where the speedier drying rate of 3-7mm/day is an advantage.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use over the top of under floor heating. This is due to the increased strength and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the special fibres within the screed mix. At approximately 1mm per day, it has an identical curing rate to standard screed.


Screeding companies will need to prepare the area prior to any other work so as to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The existing floor surfaces should be cleaned to remove any oil, grease, paint and debris which can affect the adhesion of the screed.

Screeding Near Earls Barton (NN6)

If any products are used during this stage it's vital to make certain that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the surface and it is allowed to dry out naturally. It is vital to repair any cracks in the base to stop them being reflected and "travelling" upwards into your newly screeded floor. An experienced Earls Barton screeding installer will pick up on such aspects during a site survey and make certain all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next stages of the floor screeding process.

To shield the screeding layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed. There could be 2 or 3 layers of varying thickness polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

A further airtight barrier may be necessary if your home or business premises is in a location that is known to be susceptible to radon. If radon gas occurs in severe doses then a complete ventilation and extraction system might be needed under the screed which will remove any gases that might seep in from the ground.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a sealant or primer. Primers help with the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the sort of screed that is being applied. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by qualified screeding installers in Earls Barton observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

If required, this is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. The cables and heating pipes are securely attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure that they're held in the correct position. When professionally installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm up a room and high quality screeding retains its heat, generating an even heat right across the floor surface.

If you are not putting in under floor heating the screed can now be prepared in situ and poured. Your screeding specialist will have given you guidance and advice on which kind of screed is suitable for your requirements, in line with your intended use of the room. After application of the screed there's at least 24 hours (for quick drying screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a 72 hours minimum curing time for the laying of any flooring materials. If you're aiming to wind up with a nicely finished and hard-wearing floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where the timescale will be longer.

The SR level of your screed can be checked once it's solidified enough to be walked on. The test involves using a 2 mtr long straight-edge laid down upon the surface and any deviations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there are no deviations greater than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole floor.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is relatively inconsequential the SR3 is the standard and has a deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If your screed has been installed with specific loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be necessary to carry out these soundness tests. Using specialist equipment the engineer will ascertain the screed surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. This should include what is known as a drop hammer test which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Any screeding that's got load bearing requirements must be sanctioned by a qualified structural engineer applying the BS8204 regulations.

Latex Screeding Earls Barton

When the nature of your floor's surface means that a level of flexibility is necessary, it may be an advantage to apply a latex self-levelling screed, rather than one with an unyielding finish. Latex floor screeds come in 2 parts - a bag and a bottle - with the bottle containing liquid latex and the bag containing a cement powder. The liquid latex additive actually replaces the water that would normally be used in a screed mix, and is quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

This latex screed compound is used to level-out a sub-floor before the final decorative surface is laid. Giving a smooth and durable surface that's perfect for the application of adhesives, this is is appropriate for use on sub-floors of wood, stone tiles, asphalt, sand/cement and concrete. If your subfloor has any movement in it, this latex floor screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish, onto which your chosen floor coverings can be laid.

When installing a "floating" screed, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid over the top of a membrane of thermal or acoustic insulation, thicknesses of 50mm-65mm may be needed, and latex floor screeds aren't appropriate for this purpose.
