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

Working with a highly trained and skilled contractor will ensure that you get the correct sort of screed for the room's anticipated usage to extend the lifetime of your flooring. The correct mix of screed and the way it is laid is also important to guarantee the final intergrity of your floor surface.

Make sure that you get 2 or 3 quotes for your Lyneham based floor screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting each quote. The estimate might be based on what is known as the SR, or Surface Regularity calculation. SR1 is the highest standard, and while SR2 and SR3 may seem cheaper initially, they don't guarantee a perfectly even or flat floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there will be flat spots or ridges that could cause issues when laying your final flooring materials.

Standard Screeds - A mix of sand and cement which is good for normal domestic usage. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. The standard screed will dry at a rate of one millimetre thickness each day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to press ahead urgently with the work on account of time restraints, these screeds dry much faster than standard flooring screeds. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are ideal for a wide array of projects where the faster drying rate of 3-7mm/day is an advantage.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with underfloor heating and is the advised option in these projects. The special fibres in this screed increase it's durability and strength whilst also protecting against thermal cracking and shrinkage. At roughly 1mm per day, it has a similar setting rate to standard floor screed.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that's designed for heavy traffic and high load areas where the maximum possible strength and durability is very important.

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

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is needed this mixture of latex and cement is employed to create SR1 level floor screeding. Typically used to finish off a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like tiles over it. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.


Screeding installers will need to fully prepare the area before proceeding with any other work so as to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. The existing floor surface should be thoroughly cleaned to eradicate any debris, paint, oil and grease which might affect the bond of the screeding.

If any products are used during this stage it's important to make sure that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. At this point any cracks need to be mended as these can travel up through a newly laid screed and be visible in the finished surface. During an on-site survey the screeding contractor will be able to see what preparations are required before any actual screeding work begins.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be laid. There could be 2 or 3 layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.

An additional airtight barrier could be necessary if your home or business premises is in a location that's regarded as prone to radon. If radon is present in large amounts then a complete ventilation and extraction system may be installed under the screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from the ground.

The final phase of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a sealant or primer. Primers and sealers help the bonding process and are special applications matched to the sort of screed that is being applied. Owing to their specialist nature, only qualified screeding specialists in Lyneham should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and through the use of equipment that's made for the task.

Under floor heating can now be installed and checked before the screed is poured. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and secured firmly to insulation panels to avoid potential movement in the course of the screed application. Warmth is spread evenly across a floor area in a skillfully installed under floor heating system, and along with it being an efficient method of heating, it is an excellent choice for most Lyneham renovation projects.

The screed can now be prepared in situ and spread onto the floor base. Your screeding specialist will have given you advice and guidance on which type of screed is suitable for your needs, according to your intended use of the room. After the pouring of the screed there will be at least 24 hours (for quick drying screeds) before you are able to walk on the surface, and a 72 hrs minimum curing period before the laying of any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds should be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with an even and stable floor surface.

The SR standard of your screeding can be confirmed once it's set sufficiently to be walked upon. Through the use of a 2m straight-edge the surface is examined for any deviations, ridges and dips in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less as measured across the entire floor area shows your screed to be of the highest quality and is specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10mm or less the screed quality is specified as SR3 and is the standard required for utility and garage areas.

If you need load bearing checks, a structural engineer is needed to perform the testing. The testing will ensure your new screeded surface is viable for the load point requirements laid out in the original site survey. An assessment called the drop hammer test will be carried out at various areas on the screed layer and the outcomes recorded. Any screed floor that has point load requirements must be sanctioned by a certified structural engineer applying the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeds

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a bit of flexibility is necessary, it may be advantageous to use a latex self-levelling floor screed, rather than one with a rigid finish. Latex screeds come in two parts - a bag and a bottle - with the bottle containing liquid latex and the bag containing a cement powder. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed, because the water which is normally used is substituted with the latex liquid.

This latex screed is used to level-out a subfloor prior to the final decorative surface being laid. This is suitable for use on substrate of quarry tiles, concrete, asphalt, sand/cement and wood, to provide a durable, smooth surface which is perfect for the application of adhesives. This latex screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there is a bit of movement in your subfloor.

When a screed is being laid over a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation (i.e. a floating screed), latex screeds are not appropriate, because in this instance (usually when screeding over underfloor heating), you will probably require a thickness of 50mm-65mm.

Screed Reinforcement

Screed reinforcement is employed to bolster the durability and strength of concrete screeds. Applying thin, flat layers of concrete to a base layer is the method used to create level surfaces, which are called screeds. They find common use in construction projects as flooring, but they can also be utilised as a finishing layer for ceilings and walls.

Floor Screed Reinforcement

In order to improve strength and prevent cracking, the screed mixture is enriched with reinforcement materials such as steel mesh, wire or fibres during installation. By distributing weight and load evenly across the surface, reinforcement improves its resistance to impact, thermal changes and abrasion.

The risk of shrinkage and cracking caused by temperature or humidity changes is reduced by screed reinforcement, in addition to improving the screed's strength and durability. Correct installation of the reinforcement is crucial to make sure that it is evenly distributed throughout the screed and does not become displaced over time. The incorporation of screed reinforcement enables screeding companies to make sure that their projects will stand the test of time and provide a functional, high-quality surface for many years to come.
