The screeding specialist will also notify you if a structural engineer is needed for your project, in order to check on point loadings, load bearing and flex strength that your screed floor might need to conform with current building regulations and British Standards.

The training and skills that a qualified screeding technician brings to your project should guarantee a high quality end result and help to lengthen the life of your floor. Selecting the correct screeding materials and the method of installation is crucial if you want to end up with a quality and durable finish for your floor.

There are numerous screeding companies in the Northleach area so try to get multiple price quotes for your project before picking a company and know to what standard of finish is it for. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the figure to look for when receiving an estimate from your Northleach screeding contractor.

This means you might have to rectify any patches that could cause issues when putting down your final flooring solution.

All Northleach screeding contractors must comply with British Standards (BS8204) and should have some form of accreditation from screeding material and equipment manufacturers, for instance Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete.

For larger screeding projects in factories, schools, shopping centres, warehouses, hospitals and restaurants, specialist Northleach commercial screeders will be needed.


Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic flooring projects where the blend of sand and cement is perfectly acceptable for normal floor traffic use. This mix uses a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. After laying a standard screed mix dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to use the area in question ASAP a fast drying screed might be a good choice. These are typically a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are employed in time dependent projects.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is necessary due to building requirements, a polymer screed provides a high strength solution to the problem. The drying times vary as outlined by proprietary product guidelines.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional screeders for use in combination with under floor heating systems. This is because of the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the fibres within the screed mix. The screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex mixture. This self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all types of flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of just 1mm, but will still provide a strong surface for a varied selection of flooring finishes.


Preparation is crucial for a top quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. Any paint, oil, debris and grease on the existing floor surface can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and must be eradicated.

Screeding Near Northleach (GL54)

If any cleaning products were used in this process it is crucial to ensure that no residues of soaps or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it is allowed to dry out 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 causing imperfections on the final floor surface. A reputable Northleach screeding company will pick up on these issues during a on-site survey and make certain all preparations are finished before applying the next stages of the floor screeding process.

To shield the flooring materials and screeding layer from moisture rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be laid. The DPM is made out of thick polythene sheet and different layers could be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screeding.

A further airtight barrier could be necessary if your property is in an area that is known to be susceptible to radon gas. This can be just a simple airtight membrane, or in severe situations a ventilation system will be installed under the screed to draw out any inflow of radon gas from the ground.

Once these steps have been taken the screeding company will put on a sealant or primer to the prepared base. A primer helps with the screed to successfully bond to the base and different varieties exist based on which type of screed is being applied. Equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by experienced screeding companies in Northleach following the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before any screed can be laid, any underfloor heating (if required) will now be installed. Insulation panels will be put in place and the heating pipes and cabling will be firmly mounted to prevent any movement while the screed is applied. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system will provide even warmth all over the floor.

Floor Screed Northleach (01451)

Of course, if you are not installing underfloor heating, you simply skip this step and apply the screed. The requirements of the room will determine the form of screeding used. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least twenty four hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for heavy duty and standard screeds should be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even surface.

You can check the SR level of the completed screeding once it is hardened enough to walk on. The test involves the use of a 2 metre long straight-edge laid down upon the surface and any variations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any disparities greater than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - If the floor has a deviation from the straight-edge of five millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is ten millimetres or less the screed quality is categorised as SR3 and is fine for utility and garage areas.

If you require load bearing checks, a structural engineer is needed to carry out the tests. Using specialised equipment the engineer will evaluate the screeded surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. This can include a drop hammer test which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only qualified structural engineers following the BS8204 regulations are allowed to conduct such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.

Latex Floor Screed Northleach

When the make-up of your floor's surface means that a degree of flexibility is required, it may be best to apply a latex self-levelling screeding, as opposed to one with a more rigid finish. Latex floor screed comes in 2 parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cement powder, and the bottle containing a liquid latex. The liquid latex part replaces the water which would typically be used for mixing screed, and is far more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds.

This latex screed is used to level-out a subfloor prior to the final decorative surface being installed. Giving a resilient and smooth surface that is perfect for the application of flooring adhesives, this is is appropriate for use on sub-floors of sand/cement, asphalt, quarry tiles, concrete and wood. This type of latex screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there is a bit of movement in your sub-floor.

When installing a "floating" screed, i.e. when a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of thermal or acoustic insulation, screed depths of 50-65mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds aren't suitable for this purpose.
