The rules and regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by all Galleywood floor screeding contractors and they should also be approved by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete etc.) to verify their safe working practices and competence. A company holding accreditations demonstrates that they have been assessed and trained in the use of these screeding products and can offer a high standard of service in all aspects of their installation.

For the screeding of floors in warehouses, shopping centres, hospitals, restaurants, schools and factories, dedicated Galleywood commercial screeders will be needed.


Standard Screeds - A blend of cement and sand which is acceptable for basic domestic usage. This mixture comprises a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. This 5:1 ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of just one millimetre per day after laying.

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

Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced thickness is required. The drying times vary as outlined by product guidelines.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is necessary this blend of latex and cement is employed to produce SR1 level screed flooring. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all types of flooring materials to be laid. Even with a thickness of only one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use over the top of under floor heating. The special fibres in this screed improve it's durability and strength while also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It has a setting rate of one millimetre per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to progress urgently with the flooring because of time restraints, this screed dries much faster than standard screeds. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm, determined by the specialised mix, they are usually a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are suitable for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.

Screeding installers will need to fully prepare all areas prior to any other work in order to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It is crucial that all contaminants such as oil, grease, paint or debris is eliminated from the floor surface before laying any screed, as these can affect the bonding capability that a good quality screed requires.

Screeding Near Galleywood (CM2)

If cleansing products were used it is vital to remove any residues of soap or detergent, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. It is essential to mend any cracks in the base to prevent them being mirrored and "travelling" up into your freshly screeded floor. An experienced Galleywood screeding specialist will pick up on such problems during a on-site survey and make sure all preparations are complete before applying the next steps in the floor screeding process.

Before the screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed to shield the screed and final flooring from moisture damage. There might be two or three layers of varying thickness polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If the area is at risk from radon gas then another barrier is required to stop this harmful gas from entering from the ground. A simple air-tight membrane could be enough in locations with relatively low radon emissions, but in more extreme situations there may need to be a more complex ventilation and extraction system to block any harmful radon.

Once the floor base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a sealer or primer is then put on. These primers and sealers will make certain that the screed bonds properly to the floor base and help to produce a top quality finished floor. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by professional screeding contractors in Galleywood following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

This is the time that underfloor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. The wires and heating pipes are firmly attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure that they are laid in the correct position. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in a skillfully fitted under floor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's an excellent choice for many Galleywood home renovation projects.

Naturally, if you aren't installing underfloor heating, you can skip this stage and get on with applying the screed. Your intended use of the room will help the screeding specialist on what form of screed is perfect for your requirements. For quick drying screeds there will be at least twenty four hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 3 days minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. This period is longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines must be followed to the letter to achieve the best finish and longevity of the floor.

The SR standard of your screed can be verified once it has solidified enough to be stepped onto. The basic SR test uses a 2 mtr straight edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best level and allows just 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the whole screeded surface.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is ten millimetres or less the screed quality is classed as SR3 and is suitable for utility and garage areas.

If your screeding has been laid with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer is going to be necessary to perform these soundness tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will ascertain the screed surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. A "drop hammer test" will be carried out at various areas on the screed layer and the outcomes noted. Only trained structural engineers respecting the BS8204 guidelines are permitted to perform such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of the screeding.
