Floor Screeding Hamble-le-Rice Hampshire (SO31)

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

The skills and training that a screeding contractor brings to your project should guarantee a high quality outcome and help in prolonging the life of your flooring. There are many types of floor screed and choosing the correct mix and installation approach is critical to achieve a high quality floor that is durable and fit for purpose.

There are a number of screeding specialists in the Hamble-le-Rice area so try to get multiple estimates for your project before selecting a contractor and know to what standard of finish is it for. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the figure to look for when reviewing an estimate from Hamble-le-Rice floor screeding contractors. SR2 and SR3 might be more affordable options, however the floor screeding finish might have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect quality of finish.

British Standards BS8204 lays down the guidelines and regulations that all Hamble-le-Rice screeding installers is obliged to follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc), they must be accredited by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use.

Commercial screeders in Hamble-le-Rice will probably undertake screeding projects in shopping centres, factories, schools, pubs, warehouses and hospitals.


Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic projects where the mix of cement and sand is good for basic footfall use. This mix comprises a five to one ratio of sand to cement. After being laid a standard screed sets at a rate of just 1mm/day.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option where under floor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Hamble-le-Rice. This is because of the improved durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the special fibres within the screed mix. At about 1mm per day, it has a similar drying rate to standard screed.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic 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 necessary this blend of latex and cement is employed to create SR1 level floor screeding. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all flooring materials to be laid. These can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to progress urgently with the work due to 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 appropriate for a wide range of flooring projects where the swifter curing rate of 3-7mm/day is a considerable advantage.


Good preparation is essential for a quality finished screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. Any grease, oil, debris and paint on the original floor surface can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be removed.

Screeding Near Hamble-le-Rice (SO31)

Any cleansing chemicals that are used in this process shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry out naturally. It's necessary to mend any crevices or cracks in the surface to stop them being visible and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. A site survey will enable your Hamble-le-Rice screeding company to highlight these preparation areas and finish them before beginning to pour the screeding layer.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed. There might be two or three layers of varying thickness polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

An additional air-tight barrier may be needed if your home or business premises is in an area which is regarded as susceptible to radon gas. An airtight membrane might be suitable in areas with relatively low radon emissions, however in more severe cases there might have to be a more complex extraction and ventilation system to remove any ground penetrating radon.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeding company will put on a sealant or primer to the prepared base. These sealers and primers will guarantee the screed bonds successfully to the floor base and help produce a good quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, by certified screeding companies in Hamble-le-Rice following the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before any screed can be laid, any under floor heating (if required) will now set out and installed. The wires and heating pipes are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure they're held in the correct position. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system will produce even level of warmth across the floor area.

If you aren't fitting under floor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and laid. Your screeding specialist will have given you advice and guidance on which sort of screed is best for your requirements, according to your intended use of the room area. Bear in mind that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you are able to walk on any laid surfaces and a minimum 72 hours before any flooring materials can be fitted. If you are hoping to wind up with a properly finished and long-lasting floor surface you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where the timescale will be longer.

The SR standard of your screeding can be checked once it has hardened sufficiently to be stepped onto. Using a 2 mtr straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any ridges, deviations and dips in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less as measured across the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the finest quality and is classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the entire screeded floor.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a quality finish is not required. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10mm.

If your screed floor has been laid with particular loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be needed to carry out tests. The assessment will make sure that your new screed surface is viable for the load point requirements specified in the original site survey. The screeding should be given what's known as a "drop hammer test" to gauge flexibility and strength in different areas. Any screed floor that's got point load requirements must be sanctioned by a trained structural engineer obeying the British Standards BS8204 regulations.

Granolithic Screeding Hamble-le-Rice

Granolithic screeding refers to a type of flooring that consists of a mixture of aggregate, sand and cement. It is applied in a relatively thin layer and then smoothed to provide a seamless, hard-wearing and durable surface. It is often used in industrial, public and commercial buildings where heavy traffic is expected.

The resulting flooring is hard-wearing, easy to clean and slip-resistant, making it ideal for use in areas with high foot traffic, such as shopping centres, schools and factories.

The granolithic screeding process involves preparation of the concrete sub-base, mixing the screed mixture, laying the mixture, and giving it time to cure. Proper application and curing techniques are vital for the longevity and strength of the screed. The screed must be fully cured before any additional flooring materials are installed.... READ MORE.
