If cleaning products have been used it is vital to remove any residues of detergent or soap, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor any cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the finished surface. During an on-site survey the screeding installer will notice what preparation work is needed before any actual screeding commences.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be installed after the preparation work has been completed to stop ground moisture getting into the flooring materials and screeding. Different thicknesses of special polythene may be used as a damp proof membrane and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation material.

If your house is located in a place where radon gas is present an extra barrier layer is necessary to prevent radon gas from seeping through. An air-tight membrane could be enough in places with relatively low radon measurements, but in more severe cases there may need to be a more sophisticated extraction system to remove any ground penetrating radon gases.

Once these stages have been completed the screeding company will apply a sealer or primer to the prepared base surface. A primer assists in the screed to bond to the base and different types exist depending on which kind of screed is being applied. Owing to their specialist nature, only certified screeding specialists in Montrose are capable of using them safely and correctly and using equipment that's made for this task.

Under floor 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 securely fastened so there's no movement while the screed is poured. Warmth is spread evenly across a floor area in an expertly installed under floor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient method of heating, it's an excellent choice for most Montrose home restoration projects.

Needless to say, if you're not installing underfloor heating, you simply bypass this stage and get on with applying the floor screed. Your intended use of the room will help your screeding company on which sort of screed is perfect for your needs. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 3 days minimum before you can install any flooring materials. If you're laying standard or heavy duty screeds the setting time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be adhered to in order to get the best finish for your floor.

Once the screed has set it can be quality checked to establish the SR standard. Using a 2 mtr straight-edge the surface is examined for any dips, deviations and ridges in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole screed area, if there aren't any deviations greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the entire screed.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is ten millimetres or less the screed quality is classified as SR3 and is highly suitable for garage and utility areas.

If your screed has been installed with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer will be necessary to carry out the assessment. The assessment will make sure that your new screed surface is viable for the load point requirements specified in the original site survey. The screeding will be given what's known as a drop hammer test to determine flexibility and strength in specific areas. Only experienced structural engineers following the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to carry out such testing and sign off on the structural safety of screed flooring.
