It might be a requirement, based on the proposed use of the area, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform with building regulations on point loadings, flex strength and load requirements of the screed floor.

Working with a highly trained and qualified flooring specialist will guarantee that you get the right sort of screed for the room's proposed purpose and get the optimum lifespan out of the resulting flooring. The correct mixture of screed and the way it is laid is also critical to guarantee the ultimate durability of your floor.

Make certain that you get at least 2 or 3 quotes for your Newry based floor screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting each quote. The quotation could be based on what is known as the Surface Regularity, or SR figure. SR2 and SR3 may be less costly options, but the finished floor surface may have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect finish. An SR2 or SR3 level could mean there are ridges or flat spots that may cause problems when installing your final floor surface.

British Standards BS8204 lays down the guidelines and regulations that all Newry screeding installers is obliged to follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc), they ought to be accredited by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. The training and testing of a screeding company by such manufacturers is emphasised through this accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any flooring project involving their materials.

For larger screeding projects in factories, hospitals, schools, warehouses, shops and boutiques, specialist commercial screeders in Newry will be required.


Standard Screeds - This is good for standard residential usage and comprises a mix of cement and sand. The standard screed is a mix of five parts sand to one of cement. The standard screed will dry at a rate of one millimetre thickness each day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the area at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed may be used. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm, determined by the mix, they are generally a fibre reinforced screed and are great for flooring projects that have tight schedules.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is needed this mix of of cement and latex is employed to create SR1 quality screeding. It's mainly needed to produce a smooth, clean floor over the top of a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a finish onto which all kinds of flooring materials can be laid. Even with a depth of only one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with underfloor heating systems and is the advised option in these projects. The greater flexibility and strength offered by the special fibres in this screed mix help protect the resulting floor from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. It dries at an identical rate to a standard screed of 1mm per day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are expected to be high or heavy loading of the floor is necessary, heavy duty screeds allow for maximum durability and strength.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is needed because of building factors, a polymer screed offers a high strength resolution to the situation. Because of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying curing times which can be verified by studying manufacturer's own product guidelines.

To make sure that the screeding is of a high quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time must be spent on fully preparing the area before any screed is poured. The existing floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eradicate any oil, paint, debris and grease which might affect the bond of the screed.

If any cleaning products are used in this process it's crucial to make sure that no residues of soaps, detergents or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. At this point any cracks should be repaired since these can easily travel up through your laid screed and be reflected in the finished surface. During an on-site survey the screeding specialist will be able to see what preparations are needed before any actual screeding commences.

Before the screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be put down to shield the screed and final flooring from moisture damage. There could be two or three layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon gas then a further barrier is essential to stop the gas from entering via the ground. This could be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in severe situations a ventilation system will need to be installed beneath the floor screed to extract any influx of radon gas from ground level.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a sealer or primer. Primers help the bonding process and are special applications matched to the sort of screed that is being used. Due to their specialist nature, only trained screeders in Newry are capable of using them correctly, safely and using bespoke equipment for the task.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and checked before the screed is applied. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and secured firmly to insulation panels to avoid potential movement during screed pouring. Warmth is evenly spread across a floor area in a professionally fitted underfloor heating system, and with it being an effective method of heating, it's a great choice for many Newry home restoration projects.

Obviously, if you aren't installing underfloor heating, you can just bypass this stage and get on with applying the screed. Your intended use of the room will help your screeding specialist on which form of floor screed is best for your needs. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least 24 hours delay before it can be walked on, and a further 72 hours minimum before any flooring material can be applied. If you're laying heavy duty or standard screeds the setting time is increased and you must observe the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best possible finish to your floor.

Once the screed has hardened it can be checked for quality to determine its SR standard. The basic SR test uses a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there aren't any deviations greater than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole floor.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is comparatively inconsequential the SR3 is the specification and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If your screed floor has been laid with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be required to perform the assessment. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will evaluate the screeded surface strength and suitability of use in a load bearing setting. A "drop hammer test" is conducted on different areas of the screed and the outcomes documented. The precise testing and measurement tools involved mean that this can only be carried out by a qualified structural engineer respecting the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.
