It may be necessary, depending on the intended use of the space, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform with building regulations on flex strength, load bearing and point loadings of the screed floor.

The skills and training that a screeding technician brings to your project should guarantee a high quality outcome and help to prolong the life of your floors. There are many different kinds of screeding and choosing the right mix and laying approach is vital to create a top quality floor that is both long-lasting and fit for purpose.

Before picking out a screeding company from the many operating in the Maidenhead area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their quote, and also ensure you get multiple quotes. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to look for when reviewing a quote from your Maidenhead screeding contractor. SR1 is the best level, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may seem more cost-effective at first glance, they do not guarantee a perfectly even or flat floor surface. Any errors in the final screeding can cause problems in laying flooring because of flat spots, ridges, indentations in the surface.

The regulations and guidelines specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by any Maidenhead floor screeding contractor and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc.) to confirm their competence and safe working practices. This accreditation program highlights a contractor's high quality performance and training in the application of a manufacturer's merchandise.

For larger floor screeding projects in hospitals, shops, factories, warehouses, schools and pubs, dedicated Maidenhead commercial screeders will be required.


Standard Screeds - This is good for standard residential use and comprises a mixture of sand and cement. This mixture uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. After being laid a standard screed sets at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the floor at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed may be used. They're generally a fibre reinforced kind of screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are employed in time dependent flooring projects.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this mixture of latex and cement is used to create SR1 level screed flooring. This is largely needed to produce a high quality floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a finish onto which all types of flooring materials can be laid. They can be as little as 1mm thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use on top of under floor heating. The fibres in this screed mix enhance overall durability and strength while also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It sets at the same rate as a standard screed, at about 1mm per day.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is necessary. Manufacturer's guidelines for curing times differ across the various product ranges.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where maximum durability and strength is essential.


Screeding companies will have to fully prepare the area before any other work so as to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The existing floor surfaces should be cleaned to remove any oil, grease, debris and paint that might affect the adhesion of the screed.

If any products are used in this process it's vital to make sure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. It is necessary to mend any cracks in the surface to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" up into the freshly screeded floor. During a site survey your Maidenhead screeding installer will notice what preparations are required before any actual screeding commences.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed after the preparation work has been completed to prevent ground dampness getting into the screeding and floor materials. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene could be used as a DPM and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation material.

If your home is situated in a place where radon gas is present an extra barrier layer is needed to prevent radon gas from seeping through. An airtight membrane could be suitable in locations with relatively low radon emissions, but in more extreme situations there might need to be a more sophisticated extraction and ventilation system to remove any ground penetrating radon gases.

Once these stages have been completed the screeding company will apply a sealant or primer to the prepared base surface. Primers and sealers help the bonding process and are special applications matched to the kind of screed being used. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a sealant or primer, by qualified screeding contractors in Maidenhead sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before the screed is poured. The heating pipes and cables are securely attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement and make sure that they are held in the correct position. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system should give an even level of warmth across the floor area.

Of course, if you are not fitting underfloor heating, you can skip this stage and get on with applying the floor screed. The specific requirements of the room will determine the type of screeding that is used. Remember that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any laid surface and a minimum 72 hours before any flooring materials can be applied. If you're hoping to wind up with a properly finished and long-lasting floor surface you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to standard and heavy duty screeds where the time period will be increased.

You can evaluate the SR standard of the completed screeding once it is solidified enough to walk on. The test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge laid on the surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there aren't any disparities of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you've got a top specification SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish is not needed. This specification allows for a maximium deviation of 10 millimetres.

If your screeding has been installed with specific loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be necessary to perform tests. The testing will make certain that your newly laid screed is viable for the load point requirements laid out in the site survey. The screeding could be given a "drop hammer test" to measure flexibility and strength in various areas. Only certified structural engineers following the BS8204 regulations are allowed to carry out such tests and sign off on the structural safety of the screeding.
