Your screeding company will also notify you if a structural engineer is necessary for your undertaking, to check on any point loadings, flex strength and load bearing that your flooring might require to conform with building regulations and British Standards.

Bringing in a qualified and skilled flooring specialist will ensure that you use the right kind of screed for the room's anticipated purpose and get the optimum lifespan out of the resulting flooring. The correct mix of screed and the way it is laid is also important to guarantee the final intergrity of your floor.

The estimate could be based on what's known as the Surface Regularity, or SR number.

Any errors or imperfections in the screeding (as might arise with SR2 or SR3) can cause issues with laying flooring due to ridges, flat spots, indentations in the floor surface.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Used in residential flooring projects where the mix of cement and sand is perfectly acceptable for basic footfall use. This mix uses a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. After being laid a standard screed dries out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry rapidly and allow you to use the floor area much sooner. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are appropriate for a whole host of flooring projects where the quicker curing rate of 3-7mm/day is a considerable advantage.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional installers for use with under floor heating systems. The improved flexibility and strength provided by the fibres within this screed mix help protect the flooring from thermal cracking and shrinkage. At around 1mm per day, it has a similar setting rate to standard screed.

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 necessary.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is required this blend of latex and cement is used to achieve SR1 quality screeding. This is largely used to provide a smooth, level floor over the top of a poor quality or damaged substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. Even with a depth of one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is necessary. On account of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying setting times which can be verified by viewing manufacturer's product guidelines.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Preparation is vital for a top quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. Any grease, paint, oil and debris on the original floor level can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be removed.

If cleaning products have been used it's vital to remove any traces of soap etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the final floor surface. During a site survey the screeding company will be able to see what preparation work is needed before any actual screeding work starts.

Before any screeding can be poured a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be put down to protect the screed and final flooring from moisture. Different gauges of polythene sheets could be used as a DPM and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation materials.

If your house is situated in an area where radon gas is found a supplementary barrier layer is required to prevent radon gas from entering. A simple air-tight membrane could be enough in areas with relatively low radon measurements, but in more extreme situations there may need to be a more sophisticated ventilation and extraction system to remove any harmful radon.

As soon as the floor base has been prepared and any DPMs installed, a sealer or primer is then put on. These primers and sealers will ensure the screed bonds effectively to the base surface and help to achieve a good quality finished floor. Because of their specialist nature, only professional screeders in Kinross are capable of using them safely and correctly and through the use of bespoke equipment for this task.

Before the screeding can be laid, any under floor heating (if required) will now be installed. Insulation panels will be put in position and the cabling and heating pipes will be firmly fastened to prevent any movement while the screed is applied. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a properly installed system will give an even level of warmth all over the floor.

The screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and poured onto the floor surface. Your screeding specialist will have given you guidance and advice on which sort of screed is best for your requirements, in line with your proposed use of the room. Remember that even quick drying and advanced 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 laid. If you are looking to end up with a well finished and long-lasting floor surface you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where this waiting period will be increased.

Once the screed has hardened it can be checked for quality to determine the SR level. The standard SR test uses a 2m straight edge to check for any variations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest level and allows only 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the whole screeded floor.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10mm or less the screeding quality is classed as SR3 and is the standard required for utility and garage areas.

If your screeding has been laid with particular loading in mind then a structural engineer will be necessary to conduct tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will evaluate the screeded surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. An assessment called the drop hammer test is performed at several areas on the screed and the results noted. Any screeding that has load bearing requirements must be okayed by a qualified structural engineer obeying the BS8204 regulations.
