Floor Screeding Fawley Hampshire (SO45)

It might be a requirement, based on the intended use of the area, for a survey by a structural engineer to abide by building regulations on load requirements, point loadings and flex strength of the screed floor.

Qualified and skilled tradesmen are essential to a successful outcome and will extend the life of your floor by making use of the right form of screed for your room's intended purpose. There are many types of floor screed and choosing the correct mix and laying technique is crucial to achieve a quality floor which is fit for purpose and hard-wearing.

Ensure you get more than one quotation for your Fawley floor screeding project and also ask to what standard you're getting each quote. The quote should be based on what's known as the Surface Regularity, or SR figure. SR1 is the highest standard, and while SR2 and SR3 might be more cost-effective at first glance, they do not guarantee a perfectly even or flat floor surface. Any error in the screeding can cause problems in laying flooring due to flat spots, ridges, indentations in the surface.

The rules and regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by all Fawley floor screeding companies and they should also be accredited by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc.) to demonstrate their competence and safe working practices. The testing and training of a floor screeding contractor by a manufacturer is emphasised by the use of this accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any project which involves their materials.

Fawley commercial screeders will be involved in floor screeding in shopping centres, hospitals, schools, warehouses, factories and salons.


Standard Screeds - This is perfect for everyday domestic usage and is a mix of sand and cement. The standard screed is a mixture of 5 parts sand to one of cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of 1mm each day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry rapidly and allow you to use the screeded area much sooner. They are generally a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are employed in time critical flooring projects.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is required this solution of cement and latex is used to create SR1 quality floor screeding. Typically used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level in order to lay a brand new flooring surface, like tiles over the top of it. These can be as little as 1mm thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a lower thickness. Maker's guidelines for setting times vary across the product ranges.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with underfloor heating and is the favoured option in these projects. This is because of the increased durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the special fibres within the screed. The screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm/day.

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


Screeding companies will have to fully prepare the area before proceeding with any other work so as to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. The original floor surface should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any oil, grease, debris and paint which might affect the adhesion of the screeding.

If cleansing products were used it is important to remove any traces of soap etc, and leave the surface to dry naturally. It is vital to repair any cracks or crevices in the base to stop them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into the newly screeded floor. During an on-site survey your Fawley screeding specialist will notice what preparation work is necessary before starting to work on screeding the floor.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed to protect the screed and final flooring from dampness. There could be 2 or 3 layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon gas then another barrier is required to stop the gas from entering from the ground. This could be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in severe instances a ventilation system is installed underneath the screed to draw out any influx of air and gas from the ground.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeding company will put on a primer or sealer to the prepared floor base. Sealers and primers assist with the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the type of screed that's being used. Devices such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, by certified screeding installers in Fawley observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Under floor heating can now be installed and tested before screeding is poured. Insulation panels can be put in place and the cables and heating pipes will be securely mounted so that there is no movement whilst the screed is being poured. Warmth will be evenly spread across a floor area in a professionally fitted underfloor heating system, and coupled with it being an effective choice of heating, it's a good choice for the majority of Fawley home renovation projects.

If you are not fitting under floor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. Your intended use of the room will help the screeding specialist on what type of screed is perfect for your needs. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least a 24 hour delay before it can be walked on, and a further 3 days minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds must be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and even surface.

The SR level of your screeding can be verified once it's hardened enough to be stepped onto. The test involves the use of a 2 mtr straight edge laid on the surface and any deviations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there aren't any disparities greater than three millimetres from the straight-edge, 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 five millimetres across the whole floor.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish is not needed. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation of ten millimetres.

If you need load bearing checks, a structural engineer is necessary to conduct the tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will verify the screed strength and viability of use in a load bearing environment. This will include a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. The precise measurement and testing tools needed mean that this can only be undertaken by a trained structural engineer obeying the BS8204 guidelines.

Screed Floor Removal

Screed floor removal is an essential process in the realm of construction and renovation, employed to strip away existing screed layers from floor surfaces. The upgrading or refurbishment of a floor is facilitated by this practice, which prepares the surface for the new flooring material or other improvements.

Screed floor removal is an intricate task which is best left to professional contractors who have expertise in this area. The safe and successful elimination of the old screed is what sets the stage for a fresh start for the floor, and their experience ensures that this happens. The significance of this fresh start is immense, regardless of whether it is for changes in design, upgrades or repairs.

Screed floor removal is a specialised process that requires the use of specialised techniques and equipment. In this process, it's vital to determine the type and thickness of the existing screed, as well as the surface it's adhered to. Careful attention to detail is the key to effective removal with minimal disruption to the underlying structure.

One of the primary benefits of screed floor removal is the opportunity it provides to address any underlying issues that might have developed over time. When the old screed layer is uneven, damaged, or compromised, removing it allows for a thorough examination of the substrate. This inspection enables contractors to ensure that the substrate is structurally sound and ready for the installation of new flooring materials. (22264 - Floor Screed Removal Fawley)
