A professional screeding contractor will also inform you if a structural engineer is needed for your project, to evaluate flex strength, load bearing and point loadings that your flooring might require to conform with current building regulations and British Standards.

The training and skills that a screeding technician brings to your project should guarantee a successful result and help to prolong the life of your floor. There are many kinds of screeding and choosing the right mix and laying approach is vital to achieve a quality floor that is both fit for purpose and long-lasting.

There are many screeding specialists in the Oundle area so see if you can get multiple estimates for your floor screeding project before picking out a contractor and know to what standard of finish it's for.

The regulations and guidelines specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by any Oundle floor screeding contractor and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete etc.) to confirm their competence and safe working practices. A contractor holding accreditations proves that they have been trained and assessed in the use of these products and can provide a high quality standard in all areas of their installation.

For the screeding of floors in shopping centres, restaurants, schools, factories, warehouses and hospitals, skilled commercial screeders in Oundle will be needed.


Standard Screeds - A mixture of sand and cement which is good for standard domestic usage. The ratios involved in standard screeds are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. The standard screed will dry at a rate of one millimetre thickness each day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is needed this compound of cement and latex is employed to achieve SR1 level floor screeding. This is mostly needed to provide a smooth, clean floor over the top of a poor quality or damaged substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. These can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is essential. On account of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying curing times which can be verified by studying manufacturer's product guidelines.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where the maximum possible strength and durability is crucial.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to progress urgently with the flooring owing to time limitations, these screeds dry much quicker than standard flooring screeds. The vast majority of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are suitable for a wide array of flooring projects where the quicker curing rate of 3-7mm/day is an advantage.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic properties in Oundle. The greater flexibility and strength offered by the special fibres in this screed help protect the flooring from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. At approximately 1mm per day, it has a similar curing rate to standard floor screed.


Screeding installers will have to prepare all areas before any other work in order to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It is important that any contaminants such as debris, oil, paint or grease is eliminated from the floor surface before pouring any screed, since these can affect the adhesion capability that a good quality screed needs.

Screeding Near Oundle (PE8)

If cleansing products were used it's vital to remove any remnants of soap, detergent etc, and allow the surface to dry naturally. At this point any cracks need to be repaired since these can easily travel up through a newly laid screed and be visible in the completed floor surface. During an on-site survey the screeding installer will be able to see what preparations are needed before starting to work on the screeding.

Before the screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture damage. The damp proof membrane is made of thick polythene sheeting and different layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screed.

A supplementary air-tight barrier may be required if your building is in a location which is known to be prone to radon gas emissions. If radon gas is present in severe doses then a complete ventilation and extraction system may be installed beneath the screed which will remove any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

The final step of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealer. A primer helps with the screed to bond successfully to the base and membranes and different varieties exist according to which screed type is being used. These substances need qualified contractors to apply them in the appropriate ratios by using bespoke equipment, such as airless sprays.

If required, this is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. The cabling and heating pipes are securely attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make certain they're positioned correctly. Warmth will be spread evenly across a floor area in a skillfully installed underfloor heating system, and with it being an effective method of heating, it is a great choice for most Oundle home restoration projects.

If you're not putting in underfloor heating the screed can now be prepared on site and poured. The specific requirements of the room will dictate the kind of screeding that's used. After the pouring of the screed there's at least twenty four hours (for quick drying screeds) before you can walk on the surface, and a 72 hour minimum curing period for any floor material installations. If you are aiming to wind up with a properly finished and long-lasting floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where the waiting period will be increased.

As soon as the screed has solidified it can be checked for quality to establish its SR standard. The test involves using a 2 mtr straight edge laid on the floor surface and any deviations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less as measured across the whole floor area shows your screed to be of the highest quality and is specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the whole floor.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is fairly inconsequential the SR3 is the specification and should have a deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If your screeding has been installed with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be required to carry out these soundness tests. The testing will make sure that your newly laid screed is suitable for the load bearing requirements set down in the site survey. The screed could be subjected to what is known as a "drop hammer test" to gauge flexibility and strength in different areas. Only trained structural engineers obeying the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to perform such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.

Granolithic Screeding Oundle

Granolithic screeding is a process of creating a smooth and even surface for floor coverings like tiles or carpets. It involves mixing sand, aggregate and cement to form a mixture, which is then applied to a concrete sub-base. The mixture is levelled with a straightedge to give it a smooth, seamless surface.

The resulting flooring is easy to clean, hard-wearing and slip-resistant, making it ideal for use in areas with high foot traffic, such as factories, schools and shopping centres.

The granolithic screeding process involves preparation of the concrete base, mixing the screed mixture, laying the mixture, and giving it time to cure. Correct application and curing techniques are essential for the longevity and strength of the screed. The screed must be completely cured before any additional flooring materials are laid....
