It's primarily needed to provide a clean, smooth floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a surface onto which all kinds of flooring materials can be laid.

To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that's hard wearing and durable, time must be spent on fully preparing the area before any screed is poured. It is vital that all contaminants such as paint, grease, oil or loose debris is eradicated from the floor surface before laying any screed, because these can affect the adhesion capability that a good quality floor screed demands.

If cleaning products have been used it is essential to remove any traces of detergent or soap, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor any cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" through a screed layer and causing deviations on the final floor surface. During an on-site survey the screeding company will ascertain what preparation work is required before starting to work on screeding the floor.

To shield the flooring materials and screed layer from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be laid. Different thicknesses of special polythene might be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.

A further air-tight barrier may be required if your home or business premises is in a location that is regarded as prone to radon. This could be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in more serious instances a ventilation system will need to be installed beneath the screeding to draw out any influx of air and gas from the ground.

As soon as the base has been properly prepared and any DPMs installed, a sealant or primer is then put on. A primer assists in the screed bonding correctly to the base and different varieties exist depending on which kind of screed is being applied. These substances need skilled contractors to apply them in the right proportions by using bespoke equipment, such as airless sprays.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and checked before the screed is applied. Insulation panels can be positioned and the heating pipes and cables will be firmly attached to prevent any movement whilst the screed is poured. Warmth will be evenly spread across the floor in a professionally installed under floor heating system, and with it being an efficient choice of heating, it is an excellent choice for the majority of Motherwell home renovation projects.

If you're not fitting under floor heating the screed can now be prepared on site and poured. Your screeding contractor will have given you advice on which screed type is best for your needs, in line with your intended use of the room. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least a twenty four hour delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further 3 days minimum before you can lay any flooring materials. If you're aiming to end up with a well finished and hard-wearing floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where this timescale will be increased.

You can test the SR level of the completed screeding as soon as it's solidified enough for walking on. The test involves the use of a 2 mtr long straight-edge laid down upon the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3mm or less being measured over the entire floor area shows your screeding to be of the highest quality and classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the whole floor surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a quality finish isn't necessary. This specification allows for a maximium deviation depth of ten millimetres.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to perform the tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will assess the screeding strength and viability of use in a load bearing environment. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" is performed on several areas of the screed layer and the results noted. The specialist measurement and testing tools mean that this can only be performed by a fully qualified structural engineer respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.
