Your screeding specialist will also let you know if a structural engineer is required for your undertaking, to evaluate any point loadings, load bearing and flex strength that your flooring might need to conform with building regulations and British Standards.

Working with a qualified and skilled specialist will guarantee that you use the appropriate form of screed for the room's proposed usage and get the maximum lifespan out of your flooring. There are numerous kinds of screeding and picking the correct mix and installation technique is crucial if you are to achieve a high quality floor that is both durable and fit for purpose.

Before deciding upon a floor screeding company from the many based in the Haddenham area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their quotation, and also make certain you get two or three estimates. For residential homes an estimate will normally be given for an SR (Surface Regularity) standard of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the highest quality, and while SR2 and SR3 may seem less costly initially, they don't guarantee a perfectly even or flat surface. This could mean that you may need to fix any areas that might cause issues when laying your finished flooring material.

British Standards BS8204 sets down the regulations and guidelines that all Haddenham screeding companies are required to follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc), they ought to be approved by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use.

For larger screeding projects in warehouses, shops, pubs, factories, hospitals and schools, skilled commercial screeders in Haddenham will be required.


Standard Screeds - Widely used in domestic projects where the blend of cement and sand is acceptable for standard footfall usage. The ratios involved are five parts sand to one part cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed can be utilised. Drying at a rate of three to seven millimetres, depending on the mixture, they're typically a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are perfect for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.

Screeding Quotes Haddenham Buckinghamshire

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

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

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is necessary because of building requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to the situation. Maker's guidelines for setting times are different across the product ranges.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option for professional installers where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Haddenham. This is due to the increased durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking offered by the special fibres within the screed. At approximately one millimetre per day, it has a similar drying rate to standard floor screed.


Good preparation is vital for a high quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The original floor surface should be cleaned to remove any grease, oil, paint and debris which might affect the adhesion of the screeding.

Screeding Near Haddenham (HP17)

Any cleaning products used in this process shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry out naturally. It's vital to mend any cracks in the surface to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" up into the freshly screeded floor. An on-site survey will allow the screeding contractor to pinpoint this preparation work and tackle it before starting to apply the screed layer.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be put down to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture damage. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene might be used as a DPM and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation materials.

If the area is susceptible to radon then an additional barrier is needed to stop this harmful gas from entering via the ground. If radon occurs in severe doses then a full extraction and ventilation system might be needed underneath the screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

The final phase of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a sealant or primer. These sealers and primers will make sure that the screed bonds successfully to the floor base and help to produce a quality finished floor. These products need experienced technicians to apply them in the right ratios by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.

Under floor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before screeding is applied. The heating pipes and cabling are firmly mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement and ensure they're laid in the correct position. Warmth will be evenly spread across a floor area in a properly fitted under floor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an effective choice of heating, it is an ideal choice for the majority of Haddenham renovation projects.

Of course, if you are not fitting under floor heating, you can skip this stage and get on with applying the floor screed. Your screeding specialist will have given you advice and guidance on which screed type is appropriate for your needs, in line with your proposed use of the room. After application of the screed there'll be a minimum 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you're able to walk on the surface, and a 72 hour minimum curing period before the laying of any floor coverings. If you are looking to wind up with a properly finished and long-lasting floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where this time period will be longer.

The SR standard of your screeding can be ascertained once it's hardened enough to be walked on. The test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge laid down upon the surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the whole floor area, if there aren't any disparities greater than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor deviates from the straight edge by 5mm or less it is classified as SR2 level and is the standard for industrial and commercial floors.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish is not needed. This level allows for a maximium deviation depth of 10mm.

If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is needed to conduct the tests. This test will determine the strength of the screed surface and the viability for its proposed use. A drop hammer test is performed on various areas of the screed and the outcomes noted. The specialist measurement and testing tools required mean this can only be undertaken by a trained structural engineer respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screeds Haddenham

When a certain amount of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface you might find that the employment of a latex screeding will be an advantage. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cement powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex mixture. The latex liquid solution takes the place of the water that's used in other types of screed, meaning that it's more flexible and quicker drying.

Prior to the laying of your chosen decorative covering, this latex compound is used for levelling subfloors. This screed is appropriate for subfloors made of concrete, quarry tiles, sand/cement, wood or asphalt, is perfect for the application of adhesives and gives a smooth and resilient surface. If there happens to be any movement in the sub-floor this type of screeding will produce a flexible, crack-free finish on which to lay your final floor coverings.

When an unbonded screed is being laid on top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex screeds are not appropriate, because in this case (generally when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you will probably require a screed thickness of 50mm-65mm.
