A professional screeding contractor will also tell you if a structural engineer is required for your undertaking, in order to evaluate point loadings, load requirements and flex strength that your screed floor might need to conform with building regulations and British Standards.

A qualified and skilled work force is necessary for a successful result and will extend the life of your floor by using the right kind of screed for the intended purpose of your room. There are many types of floor screeding and choosing the right mix and laying process is vital to achieve a quality floor that is both long-lasting and fit for purpose.

Before selecting a floor screeding contractor from those based in the Johnstone area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their estimate, and also ensure you get two or three quotes. The estimate might be based on what's called the Surface Regularity, or SR calculation. SR1 is the best level, and whilst SR2 and SR3 might be cheaper initially, they don't guarantee a totally flat or even surface. Any imperfections in the screeding can cause problems in laying flooring due to flat spots, indentations, ridges in the floor surface.

All Johnstone screeding companies have to stick to British Standards (BS8204) and should have accreditation from the manufacturers of specialised screeding equipment and materials, e.g. Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete. This accreditation program highlights a firm's training and ability in the application of a manufacturer's product.

For larger floor screeding projects in warehouses, schools, shopping centres, pubs, hospitals and factories, specialist commercial screeders in Johnstone will be required.


Standard Screeds - Frequently used in residential projects where the mix of sand and cement is perfectly acceptable for everyday floor traffic usage. This mixture uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. The standard flooring screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option where under floor heating is being installed in residential properties in Johnstone. The special fibres in the screed increase overall strength and durability whilst also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex solution. Largely used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level in order to lay a new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks on top of it. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to use the floor as quickly as possible a fast drying screed can be used. The majority of the fast drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are perfect for a wide range of projects where the faster curing rate of 3-7mm/day is advantageous.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is required due to building factors, a polymer screed offers a high strength solution to the situation. The setting times for these vary according to proprietary product guidelines.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum strength and durability on floors where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor base is required.


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

Screeding Near Johnstone (PA5)

If any products were used in this process it's vital to make sure that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the floor surface and it is allowed to dry out naturally. At this point any cracks should be mended since these can easily travel up through a laid screed and be reflected in the finished surface. During a site survey the screeding company will be able to see what preparation work is required before any actual screeding work commences.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture. The DPM is made of thick polythene and various layers could be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screed.

An additional air-tight barrier could be necessary if your house is in an area that's known to be susceptible to radon gas. A simple airtight membrane could be suitable in areas with relatively low radon measurements, but in more extreme situations there might need to be a more sophisticated extraction system to take away any harmful radon gas.

As soon as the base has been prepared and all membranes installed, a sealant or primer is then put on. A primer assists in the screed to bond to the base and membranes and different types exist depending on which type of screed is being used. These substances need qualified technicians to apply them in the correct ratios by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and checked before screeding is applied. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement during screed pouring. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a properly installed system will deliver even warmth in all areas of the floor.

Of course, if you're not installing under floor heating, you can ignore this step and get on with applying the floor screed. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the type of screeding that's used. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked on, and a further seventy two hours minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. If you're using standard or heavy duty screeds the setting time is longer and you must observe the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best possible finish to your floor.

The SR level of your screeding can be verified once it's set enough to be walked upon. The test involves using a 2 mtr long straight-edge laid down upon the floor surface and any variations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest level and allows only 3 millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole floor.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the finish is relatively inconsequential SR3 is the specification and has a deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

It might also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. The assessment will ensure your new screeding is viable for the load point requirements specified in the original site survey. This can include a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. The specialist testing and measurement tools required mean that this can only be conducted by a certified structural engineer observing the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Floor Screeds Johnstone

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a bit of flexibility is required, it will be advantageous to use a latex self-levelling screed, as opposed to one with a more rigid finish. Latex screeds usually comprise two parts - a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex component. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the latex liquid, which makes it quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

This latex product is used for levelling-out subfloors prior to the laying of your chosen decorative surface. Appropriate for sub-floors of wood, stone tiles, sand/cement, asphalt and concrete, this gives a perfect surface for the application of adhesives which is smooth and resilient. This type of screeding will produce a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there's movement in your sub-floor.

When a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex flooring screeds are not a suitable choice, because in cases like this (normally when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you will likely require a screed thickness of 50mm-65mm.
