To make sure the screeding is of a good quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time must be devoted to fully preparing the area before any screed is laid. It is important that all contaminants such as paint, oil, debris or grease is eradicated from the floor surface before laying any screed, since these can affect the bonding process that a quality floor screed demands.

If cleaning products were used it is vital to remove any remnants of soap or detergent, and allow the surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and producing deviations on the final surface. A decent Horbury screeding installer will pick up on these aspects during a on-site survey and make sure that all preparations are finished before applying the next steps in the screeding process.

To protect the flooring materials and screeding layer from moisture rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed. The DPM is made out of thick polythene sheeting and various layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon gas then a further barrier is essential to prevent the gas from entering via the ground. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a full ventilation system might be needed under the screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from ground level.

The final stage of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealant. A primer helps with the screed to bond successfully to the base surface and different varieties exist based upon which kind of screed is being used. These substances require skilled contractors to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.

If required, this 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 prevent any movement and make certain they're laid in the correct position. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should produce even level of warmth all over the floor.

If you're not fitting underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared in situ and laid. Your intended use of the room will help the screeding specialist on what sort of screed is best for your requirements. Remember that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you are able to walk over any laid surface and at least 3 days before any flooring materials can be applied. This timescale is longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to accomplish the optimum finish and durability of the floor.

Once the screed has hardened it can be quality checked to confirm its SR level. The test involves using a two metre straight edge laid down upon the surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any deviations of more than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is fairly immaterial SR3 is the specification and has a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If your screed floor has been laid with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be needed to conduct tests. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will verify the screeded surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. A drop hammer test will be conducted at various areas on the screed layer and the results documented. The specialist measurement and testing tools needed mean that this can only be conducted by a competent structural engineer following the guidelines of BS8204.
