It may be a requirement, contingent on the proposed use of the room, for a survey by a structural engineer to abide by building regulations on flex strength, point loadings and load bearing of the screed floor.

The skills and training that a qualified screeding specialist brings to your project should guarantee a successful result and help to lengthen the lifetime of your floor or floors. Selecting the right screeding materials and the method of installation is vital if you want to end up with a quality and durable finish for your floor surface.

Before selecting a screeding contractor from any operating in the Milngavie area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their price quote, and also make sure you get two or three quotations. The quote could be based on what's called the Surface Regularity, or SR figure. SR2 and SR3 could be less costly options, however the floor screeding finish may have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect finish. Any imperfections in the screeding may cause problems in laying flooring due to indentations, ridges, flat spots in the floor surface.

British Standards BS8204 lays out the guidelines and regulations that all Milngavie screeding contractors must follow, and if working with specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc), they should be accredited by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. A company holding such accreditation indicates they've been trained and assessed in the use of these screeding products and can deliver a high standard of service in all areas of their installation.

Commercial screeders in Milngavie will usually tackle screeding projects in schools, factories, warehouses, shopping centres, hospitals and boutiques.


Standard Screeds - A combination of sand and cement which is good for standard domestic use. The standard screed is a mix of five parts sand to one of cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured option where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Milngavie. This is because of the increased durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the special fibres within the screed. It dries at the same rate as a standard screed, at about one millimetre per day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A cement and latex mixture which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. Largely used to improve a poor substrate level or damaged floor in order to lay a new flooring surface, such as tiles over it. This liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of only one millimetre, but still provides a high strength base to take a selection of flooring materials.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to move forward urgently with the flooring due to time limitations, this screed dries more speedily than standard flooring screeds. They're usually a fibre reinforced screed which can dry at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are employed in time dependent projects.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is essential. Maker's guidelines for drying times vary across the product ranges.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum durability and strength in places where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor base is required.


Good preparation is crucial for a high quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. Any debris, grease, oil and paint on the original floor level can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eradicated.

Screeding Near Milngavie (G62)

Any cleaning products which are used in this stage should leave no residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and producing deviations on the finished floor surface. An on-site survey will allow the screeding installer to take note of this preparation work and complete it before starting to lay the screeding.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be installed once the preparation work has been done to prevent ground dampness affecting the screed and floor materials. Different thicknesses of special polythene may be used as a DPM and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation materials.

Another air-tight barrier may be necessary if your home is in a location that's known to be susceptible to radon gas emissions. If radon gas occurs in severe doses then a complete ventilation and extraction system might be needed under the layer of screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from ground level.

Once these steps have been taken the screeding company will apply a primer or sealer to the prepared base. These primers and sealers will guarantee the screed bonds successfully to the base and help achieve a good quality finished floor. These materials require experienced contractors to apply them in the correct proportions by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before the screed is applied. Insulation panels can be positioned and the heating pipes and cables will be firmly mounted so that there is no movement whilst the screed is poured. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system will deliver even level of warmth in all areas of the floor.

If you aren't fitting under floor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. Your screeding contractor will have given you advice on which screed type is suitable for your needs, in line with your proposed use of the room area. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least a 24 hour delay before it can be walked over, and a further 72 hours minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. If you're laying heavy duty or standard screeds the curing time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be adhered to in order to get the best possible finish for your floor.

Once the screed has solidified it can be quality checked to verify the SR level. Using a 2 metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any ridges, dips and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Disparities of three millimetres or less as measured across the whole floor area shows your screed to be of the best quality and is specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the floor deviates from the straight edge by 5mm or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is relatively immaterial SR3 is the classification and has a maximum deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is needed to conduct the tests. Using specialised equipment the engineer will establish the screed strength and viability of use in a load bearing environment. The screed will be subjected to what's known as a "drop hammer test" to gauge strength and flexibility in different areas. The precise testing and measurement tools mean this can only be conducted by a fully qualified structural engineer applying the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

What Does Screeding Do?

There are several significant purposes that screeding serves in construction projects:

  1. Compatibility with Floor Finishes.
  2. Smoothing and Levelling.
  3. Improving Thermal and Sound Insulation.
  4. Even Load Distribution.
  5. Corrections to Subfloors.
  6. Surface Protection.
  7. Underfloor Heating System Support.
  8. Stability and Structural Integrity.

All in all, screeding plays a vital role in creating a stable, durable and level floor surface. By providing a solid foundation, it ensures that the floor finish maintains its quality and aesthetics, and withstands the demands of day-to-day use over an extended period.

Granolithic Screeding

Granolithic screeding is a process of creating an even and smooth surface for floor coverings like carpets or tiles. It involves mixing aggregate, sand and cement to form a mixture, which is then applied to a concrete sub-base. The mixture is levelled with a straight edge to give it a smooth surface.

Granolithic screeding is frequently used in industrial and commercial buildings and also in high-traffic areas in residential buildings. It is also commonly used in areas where abrasion and chemical resistance are essential. The resulting surface is smooth and hard, which makes it easy to clean and maintain, and provides an excellent base for other flooring materials.

Granolithic screeding is typically applied over a concrete sub-base, and the surface is normally treated with a curing compound to ensure it sets properly. Once cured, it creates a seamless floor with a smooth, hard surface that is resistant to wear. It is also highly resistant to water and chemicals, which makes it perfect for use in environments where there is a chance of spills or exposure to hazardous materials.... READ MORE.
