Bringing in a highly trained and skilled contractor will ensure you use the proper sort of screed for the room's anticipated usage and get the maximum lifespan out of the resulting floor.

Before deciding upon a floor screeding company from the many operating in the Minehead area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quote, and also make sure you get multiple quotations. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to look for when reviewing an estimate from Minehead screeding contractors. Each of the 3 SR levels provide different standards of finish, with SR1 offering the highest quality, with the smallest amount of deviation over the surface area. An SR2 or SR3 standard might mean there will be flat spots or ridges that may cause issues when putting down your final flooring surface (tile, wood, carpet etc).

Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is necessary. Because of their different chemical compositions, polymer screeds have varying drying times which can be verified by viewing manufacturer's product guidelines.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are essential, by a cement and latex mixture. Mainly used to finalise a poor substrate level or damaged floor so as to lay a new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks over the top of it. These can be as little as 1mm thick, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries rapidly and allows you to use the screeded area much sooner. They're generally a fibre reinforced screed which can dry at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are employed in time-sensitive flooring projects.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum durability and strength in areas where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor base is required.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use on top of underfloor heating. This is because of the improved durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking offered by the special fibres within the screed. It dries at an identical rate to a standard screed, at about 1mm per day.


Good preparation is vital for a high quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. It's important that any contaminants such as paint, debris, grease or oil is removed from the floor before pouring any screed, since these can affect the bonding capability that a good quality screed needs.

If any cleaning products were used during this stage it's crucial to ensure that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. It's essential to mend any cracks in the base to stop them being visible and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. A skilled Minehead screeding installer will take note of these problems during a site survey and make certain all preparations are finished before moving on to the next stages of the floor screeding process.

Before any screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed to shield the final flooring and screed from dampness. The DPM is made of thick polythene and different layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If your property is located in an area where radon gas is present an additional barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from seeping through. If radon gas occurs in severe doses then a full ventilation and extraction system may be installed underneath the screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from ground level.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeders will put on a sealer or primer to the prepared floor base. A primer helps with the screed bonding process to the base and membranes and different types exist based upon which type of screed is being applied. These products require qualified technicians to apply them in the right proportions by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.

Now is the time that underfloor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. Insulation panels will be arranged and the cabling and heating pipes will be securely fastened so there's no movement whilst the screed is being applied. Warmth will be spread evenly across a floor area in a properly fitted underfloor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient choice of heating, it is a great choice for the majority of Minehead home restoration projects.

Of course, if you are not fitting under floor heating, you simply bypass this step and apply the screeding. Your proposed use of the room will assist the screeding specialist on which form of screed is perfect for your needs. Bear in mind that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you are able to walk over any screeded surfaces and at least 3 days before any flooring materials can be fitted. If you're hoping to wind up with a properly finished and durable floor surface you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where the timescale will be longer.

As soon as the screed has set it can be quality checked to ascertain the SR standard. The test involves using a 2m straight edge laid down upon the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there are no disparities of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10mm or less the screeding quality is categorised as SR3 and is highly suitable for utility and garage areas.

It might also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. The assessment will make sure that your new screeding is suitable for the load point requirements set down in the site survey. The screeding should be given what is known as a "drop hammer test" to determine flexibility and strength in various areas. Any screed flooring that's got point load requirements must be approved by a qualified structural engineer obeying the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.
