The screeding company will also notify you if a structural engineer is necessary for your project, in order to identify load bearing, point loadings and flex strength that your screed floor might need to conform with current British Standards and building regulations.

The training and skills that a certified screeding contractor brings to your project should guarantee a successful end result and help to extend the life of your floor or floors. There are numerous types of screed and picking the appropriate mix and installation process is crucial to achieve a quality floor that's fit for purpose and hard-wearing.

There are numerous screeding companies in the Methil area so try to get multiple price quotes for your floor screeding project before selecting a contractor and know to what standard of finish is it for. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the figure to look for when getting an estimate from Methil floor screeding companies. SR1 is the best level, and while SR2 and SR3 may be cheaper at first glance, they do not guarantee a totally even or flat floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 level could mean there are ridges or flat spots that could cause issues when putting down your final flooring surface (carpet, wood, tile etc).

The regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by all Methil floor screeding contractors and they must also be certified by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc.) to prove their competence and safe working practices. A contractor holding accreditations shows that they have been assessed and trained in the use of these products and can deliver a high standard of service in all areas of their installation.

Methil commercial screeders might be involved in floor screeding in factories, schools, warehouses, shops, hospitals and salons.


Standard Screeds - Used in domestic projects where the mix of cement and sand is okay for everyday footfall use. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the typical mixture for standard screed. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to press ahead urgently with the flooring owing to time limitations, these screeds dry more speedily than standard flooring screeds. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm, determined by the mixture, they're typically a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are suitable for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option for professional installers where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Methil. This is because of the improved durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the special fibres within the screed mix. It's got a drying rate of one millimetre per day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are high or heavy loading on the floor is required, heavy duty screeds provide maximum strength and durability.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement formula which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all flooring materials to be laid. Even with a thickness of one millimetre, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed because of building factors, a polymer screed offers a high strength resolution to this problem. Polymer screeds are made by a number of screed manufacturers and owing to their varying chemical compositions have specific setting times for each individual product.


Screeding installers will need to fully prepare the area before proceeding with any other work in order to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. Any paint, grease, oil and debris on the existing floor surface can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and must be eliminated.

Any cleaning products which are used during this stage shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry out naturally. At this stage any cracks should be mended since these can travel up through the newly laid screed and be visible in the completed floor surface. During an on-site survey the screeding specialist will be able to see what preparations are necessary before starting to work on the actual screeding.

To protect the flooring materials and screed layer from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed. Different thicknesses of special polythene may be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation material.

If the area is susceptible to radon then an additional barrier is needed to stop this harmful gas from entering via the ground. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a full ventilation system may be installed beneath the screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from the ground.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeding company will put on a primer or sealant to the prepared base surface. These primers and sealers will ensure the screed bonds properly to the base surface and help to produce a top quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by qualified screeding installers in Methil following the manufacturer's guidelines.

Under floor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before the screed is applied. Insulation panels can be arranged and the cabling and heating pipes will be securely attached so that there is no movement whilst the screed is applied. Warmth will be evenly spread across the floor in a properly fitted underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an effective method of heating, it is an ideal choice for many Methil home renovation projects.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared on site and applied to the floor base. Your intended use of the room will help the screeding specialist on what type of screed is perfect for your requirements. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. If you are hoping to end up with a properly finished and durable floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to heavy duty and standard screeds where this timescale will be longer.

Once the screeding has hardened it can be quality checked to determine its SR standard. The test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge laid on the surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest specification and allows only 3mm of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10 millimetres or less the screeding quality is classified as SR3 and is suitable for garage and utility areas.

If your screeding has been laid with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer is going to be necessary to conduct the tests. Using specialist equipment the engineer will verify the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. A drop hammer test will be conducted on different areas of the screed and the results documented. The precise testing and measurement tools involved mean this can only be undertaken by a certified structural engineer applying the guidelines of BS8204.

Latex Screeding Methil

It is best to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a certain amount of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cement powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex. The latex liquid part actually replaces the water that would typically be used in a screed mix, and is more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds.

Before the laying of the final decorative surface, this latex compound is used for levelling sub-floors. This is suitable for substrate made of sand/cement, quarry tiles, asphalt, concrete or wood, is perfect for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a resilient and smooth surface. Even where there happens to be a bit of movement in your sub-floor, this type of floor screed will provide a flexible, crack-free finish.

Latex screeds are not appropriate where a "floating" screed is required, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid over a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, such as might be the case when you're screeding on top of underfloor heating, and screed depths of 50 to 75 millimetres may be needed.
