The screeding specialist will also let you know if a structural engineer is needed for your project, to check on point loadings, flex strength and load bearing that your screed floor may require to conform with current British Standards and building regulations.

Working with a skilled and qualified flooring specialist will ensure you use the appropriate type of screed for the room's allocated usage to extend the lifespan of your floor. There are numerous types of screed and choosing the appropriate mix and installation method is critical to achieve a top quality floor which is fit for purpose and long-lasting.

Before choosing a floor screeding company from the many operating in the Hedge End area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quote, and also ensure you get two or three price quotes. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to keep your eye on when getting an estimate from your Hedge End screeding contractor. Each of the 3 SR levels deliver different levels of finish, with SR1 being the highest, with the smallest amount of deviation over the surface area. An SR2 or SR3 level could mean there are flat spots or ridges that might cause issues when laying your final floor surface.

British Standards BS8204 sets down the regulations and guidelines that all Hedge End screeding installers are required to follow, and if working with specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc), they should be certified by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. A company holding accreditation indicates they have been trained and assessed in the use of these screeding products and can provide a high standard of service in all areas of their installation.

Commercial screeders in Hedge End will generally tackle larger screeding projects in warehouses, factories, schools, pubs, shopping centres and hospitals.


Standard Screeds - A blend of cement and sand which is perfect for standard residential usage. The standard screed is a mix of five parts sand to one of cement. This 5 to 1 ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of just one millimetre per day after application.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is necessary due to construction factors, a polymer screed provides a high strength resolution to the problem. The curing times for these vary as outlined by proprietary product guidelines.

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

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to progress urgently with the flooring because of time restraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard screeds. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, depending on the mixture, they're generally a fibre reinforced screed and are ideal for flooring projects that have tight schedules.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use on top of underfloor heating. The greater strength and flexibility offered by the fibres in the screed help protect the floor from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. The screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this solution of latex and cement is employed to create SR1 level screed flooring. This is mainly used to provide a smooth, clean floor over the top of a poor quality or damaged 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 range of uses.


To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time must be spent on fully preparing the area before any screed is poured. It's important that any contaminants such as grease, paint, oil or loose debris is eradicated from the base before pouring any screed, because these can affect the adhesion process that a quality floor screed demands.

If cleaning products were used it's crucial to remove any remnants of detergent or soap, and allow the surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" through the screed layer and causing deviations on the finished floor surface. A genuine Hedge End screeding contractor will address such problems during a on-site survey and ensure all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be put down once the preparation work has been completed to prevent ground dampness affecting the flooring materials and screed. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene may be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon gas then an additional barrier is essential to prevent the gas from entering from the ground. If radon gas is present in severe doses then a full ventilation system might be needed underneath the layer of screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

As soon as the 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 base surface and help to achieve a good quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by qualified screeding companies in Hedge End observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Now is the time that under floor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. The heating pipes and cables are firmly attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure that they are positioned correctly. Warmth is evenly spread across the floor in a skillfully fitted under floor heating system, and with it being an efficient method of heating, it is a great choice for the majority of Hedge End home renovation projects.

If you're not putting in underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared on site and poured. Your screeding company will give you advice on which sort of screed is appropriate for your needs, according to your intended use of the room area. After the pouring of the screed there'll be at least twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you're able to walk over the surface, and a seventy two hours minimum setting time for any floor material installation. If you're using standard or heavy duty screeds the drying time is increased and you must observe the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best finish to your floor.

You can assess the SR standard of the completed screeding once it is solidified enough for walking on. The standard SR test uses a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole screed area, if there aren't any disparities of more than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top specification SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the entire screeded floor.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is comparatively unimportant SR3 is the classification and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

It may also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to perform a soundness test. Using specialist equipment the engineer will assess the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. This should include a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. Only certified structural engineers observing the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are allowed to carry out such tests and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.
