Floor Screeding Heckington Lincolnshire (NG34)

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

Bringing in a qualified and highly trained contractor will ensure you use the correct form of screed for the room's proposed purpose to extend the lifetime of your floor. A correct blend of screed and the way it is laid is also critical to guarantee the final durability of your floor.

Make sure you get 2 or 3 estimates for your Heckington floor screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each price quote is for. The estimate might be based on what is known as the Surface Regularity, or SR calculation. Each of the 3 SR levels provide different qualities of finish, with SR1 being the highest, with the lowest amount of deviation over the surface area. An SR2 or SR3 standard might mean there are flat spots or ridges that could cause issues when laying your final floor surface.

All Heckington screeding companies must observe British Standards (BS8204) and should have accreditation from the manufacturers of screeding materials and equipment, e.g. Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete. The training and testing of a floor screeding company by a manufacturer is highlighted through this accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any screeding project which involves their materials.

Heckington commercial screeders may be involved in screeding floors in warehouses, factories, schools, hospitals, shopping centres and pubs.


Standard Screeds - Used in domestic projects where the mixture of cement and sand is good for normal floor traffic usage. The standard screed is a mix of five parts sand to one of cement. The standard flooring screed will dry at a rate of 1mm thickness each day.

Screeding Quotes Heckington Lincolnshire

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum strength and durability in areas where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor base is needed.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are required, by a cement and latex mixture. It's primarily used to provide a clean, smooth floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. Even with a thickness of 1mm, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is essential. The curing times vary in accordance with proprietary product guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with under floor heating systems and is the preferred option in such projects. The increased flex and strength offered by the fibres in the screed mix help protect the resulting floor from thermal cracking and shrinkage. It sets at the same rate as a standard screed of 1mm per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to move forward urgently with the flooring on account of time restraints, this screed dries much faster than standard flooring screeds. The majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are perfect for a wide array of projects where the speedier curing rate of 3-7mm is a considerable advantage.


Good preparation is crucial for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. Any oil, paint, grease and debris on the original floor surface can affect the bonding of the screed, and must be eliminated.

Screeding Near Heckington (NG34)

Any cleaning chemicals which are used during this stage should leave no residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry out naturally. It is essential to mend any cracks in the surface to avoid them being reflected and "travelling" upwards into the newly screeded floor. A site survey will enable your Heckington screeding installer to take note of these preparation areas and finish them before commencing to pour the screeding layer.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down after the preparation work has been concluded to stop ground dampness affecting the flooring materials and screeding. The DPM is made from thick polythene sheet and various layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If your home is located in an area where radon is found a supplementary barrier layer is required to prevent radon gas from entering. This could be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in more serious situations an extraction and ventilation system is installed under the screed to extract any influx of air and gas from the ground.

As soon as the floor base has been prepared and all membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then applied. These sealers and primers will make certain the screed bonds perfectly to the floor base and help accomplish a quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by certified screeding companies in Heckington following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Before the screeding can be laid, any underfloor heating will now set out and installed. The heating pipes and cabling are firmly attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement and ensure that they are positioned correctly. Warmth is spread evenly across the floor in a professionally installed underfloor heating system, and along with it being an effective method of heating, it's an ideal choice for most Heckington home restoration projects.

If you're not installing underfloor heating the screed can now be prepared on site and laid. Your screeding company will give you guidance and advice on which screed type is suitable for your needs, in line with your proposed use of the room area. Bear in mind that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any laid surfaces and a minimum three days before any floor coverings can be fitted. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds must be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with an even and stable surface.

The SR level of your screeding can be checked once it has hardened sufficiently to be walked upon. Through the use of a 2 metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any deviations, ridges and dips in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less as measured across the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the highest 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 5 millimetres across the entire floor surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a quality finish isn't required. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation of ten millimetres.

If your screeding has been installed with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be required to carry out the assessment. This assessment will ascertain the overall strength of the screed surface and its viability for the proposed use. A drop hammer test will be carried out on various areas of the screed layer and the outcomes documented. The precise measurement and testing tools mean that this can only be undertaken by a fully qualified structural engineer observing the guidelines of BS8204.

Latex Screed

When a degree of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface you may find that using a latex screed will be advantageous. Latex floor screeds come in 2 parts - a bottle and a bag - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cement powder. The liquid latex solution actually replaces the water which would typically be used in a screed mix, and is quicker drying and more flexible than standard screeds.

Prior to the installation of your chosen decorative covering, this latex product is used for levelling-out subfloors. Producing a durable, smooth surface that's ideal for the application of flooring adhesives, this is is appropriate for use on subfloors of stone tiles, wood, concrete, asphalt and sand/cement. Even if there is movement in your subfloor, this type of floor screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when screeding is being laid on top of underfloor heating, depths of 50 to 75 millimetres may be needed, and latex screeds aren't a suitable choice in this instance.

Granolithic Screeding Heckington

Granolithic screeding refers to a kind of flooring that consists of a mixture of cement, sand and aggregate. 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.

Granolithic screeding is usually used in commercial and industrial buildings and also in high-traffic areas in residential buildings. It is also commonly used in areas where chemical and abrasion resistance are needed. The resulting surface is hard and smooth, which makes it easy to maintain and clean, and provides an outstanding base for other flooring materials.

The granolithic screeding process involves preparation of the concrete base, mixing the screed mixture, laying the mixture, and allowing it to cure. Correct application and curing techniques are vital for the longevity and strength of the screed. The screed must be fully cured before any additional flooring is laid.... READ MORE.
