It might be necessary, according to the proposed use of the area, for a survey by a structural engineer to abide by building regulations on load requirements, flex strength and point loadings of the screed floor.

A skilled and qualified work force is essential to a successful outcome and will extend your floor's lifespan by making use of the correct kind of screed for the proposed purpose of your room. A correct mixture of screed and the way it is laid is also important to guarantee the ultimate intergrity of your floor surface.

Before choosing a floor screeding specialist from the many based in the Long Eaton area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quote, and also ensure you get multiple quotations from different contractors. For domestic properties an estimate will generally be provided for a Surface Regularity (SR) level of SR1 or SR2. SR2 and SR3 could be less expensive options, however the floor screeding finish may have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect finish. Any imperfections in the screeding can cause issues with laying flooring owing to flat spots, indentations, ridges in the surface.

The regulations and guidelines laid down in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by all Long Eaton floor screeding contractors and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc.) to verify their safe working practices and competence. This accreditation scheme highlights a company's ability and training in the use of a manufacturer's screeding products.

Long Eaton commercial screeders could be involved in the screeding of floors in shopping centres, warehouses, schools, restaurants, hospitals and factories.


Standard Screeds - A blend of cement and sand which is good for normal residential usage. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre each day.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is required due to construction factors, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength solution to the situation. Maker's guidelines for drying times vary across the product ranges.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex formula which can achieve the highest standard SR1 finish. Typically used to finish off a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, like tiles over the top of it. Even with a thickness of just one millimetre, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Designed for maximum durability and strength on floors where traffic is expected to be high or specific loading of the floor base is necessary.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to use the area as soon as possible a fast drying screed might be a good choice. Drying at a rate of three to seven millimetres, subject to the mix, they are generally a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are suitable for projects which have tight schedules.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use over the top of underfloor heating. The increased strength and flexibility provided by the special fibres in the screed help protect the flooring from thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.


To ensure that the screeding is of a good quality finish that is durable and hard wearing, time should be devoted to carefully preparing the area prior to any screeding material being laid. Any oil, paint, debris and grease on the existing floor surface can affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be eradicated.

Screeding Near Long Eaton (NG10)

If cleansing products have been used it's vital to remove any traces of soap etc, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and producing imperfections on the finished floor surface. A site survey will enable the screeding company to highlight these preparation areas and complete them before starting to lay the screeding.

To shield the flooring materials and screed layer from dampness rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed. There may be 2 or 3 layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

If your home is situated in a place where radon gas is present an additional barrier layer is essential to stop radon gas from getting through. This can be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in severe cases a ventilation system is installed beneath the screed to take away any inflow of radon gas from the ground.

As soon as the base has been properly prepared and any DPMs installed, a sealer or primer is then put on. Primers and sealers help with the bonding process and are specialist applications matched to the type of screed being used. Owing to their special nature, only certified screeders in Long Eaton should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and through the use of equipment that is made for the task.

If you are installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be properly set out and installed. The wires and heating pipes are firmly mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement and make sure that they're positioned correctly. Warmth will be evenly spread across a floor area in a professionally installed under floor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's an excellent choice for most Long Eaton home renovation projects.

If you are not fitting underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared on site and laid. The specific requirements of the room will determine the form of screeding that is used. Remember that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk on any laid surface and a minimum three days before any flooring materials can be applied. If you are aiming to wind up with a properly finished and durable floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where this timescale will be longer.

The SR level of your screed can be ascertained once it has set sufficiently to be walked on. Using a 2 mtr straight-edge the surface is examined for any ridges, deviations and dips in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there are no disparities greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you have a top specification SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the whole floor.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is relatively immaterial the SR3 is the specification and should have a deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is required to conduct the testing. This assessment will ascertain the strength of the screed surface and the suitability for its intended use. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" is carried out on various areas of the screed layer and the results noted. Only fully qualified structural engineers obeying the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to conduct such testing and sign off on the structural safety of the screeding.

Latex Screeds Long Eaton

When a degree of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface you may find that the employment of a latex self-levelling floor screed will be advantageous. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cement powder, and the bottle containing a liquid latex. The latex liquid part replaces the water which is used in standard screeds, making it more flexible and quicker drying.

Used for levelling subfloors, this latex compound creates a suitable surface for the installation of your chosen floor finish. This screed is appropriate for use on subfloors of concrete, asphalt, quarry tiles, sand/cement and wood, to provide a resilient, smooth surface which is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives. If your subfloor has any movement in it, this latex screeding will still give you a crack-free, flexible finish, onto which your final floor coverings can be laid.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screed is being laid over the top of underfloor heating, depths of 50mm-75mm may be desirable, and latex screeds aren't suitable for this purpose.
