Preparation is crucial for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. It is important that all contaminants such as paint, oil, grease or debris is removed from the base before laying any screed, because these can affect the adhesion capability that a good quality screed needs.

If any products were used in this process it's important to make sure that no residues of soaps, detergents or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it is allowed to dry out naturally. At this stage any cracks need to be repaired because these can travel up through your newly laid screed and be reflected in the finished surface. During an on-site survey the screeding specialist will be able to see what preparation work is necessary before starting to work on the screeding.

Before any screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be put down to protect the final flooring and screed from moisture damage. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene might be used as a DPM and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.

A further airtight barrier could be needed if your home or business premises is in an area which is known to be prone to radon. An airtight membrane could be sufficient in locations with relatively low radon emissions, however in more severe situations there may have to be a more complex extraction and ventilation system to block any harmful radon.

Once the base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then applied. These primers and sealers will ensure the screed bonds perfectly to the base and help to achieve a top quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays can be used to apply a primer or sealant, by experienced screeding contractors in Paulton sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Before the screeding can be laid, any underfloor heating will now set out and installed. Insulation panels will be put in position and the cabling and heating pipes will be firmly fastened to prevent any movement whilst the screed is applied. When professionally installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and high quality screeding will retain its heat, creating an even level of warmth right across the floor.

Obviously, if you aren't putting in under floor heating, you simply skip this step and apply the floor screed. The particular requirements of the room will determine the sort of screeding used. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for heavy duty and standard screeds must be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and even floor surface.

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

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best standard and permits only 3mm of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the entire screeded floor.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is ten millimetres or less the screed quality is classified as SR3 and is fine for utility and garage areas.

If you require load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is needed to conduct the tests. This assessment will ascertain the overall strength of the screed surface and the suitability for its proposed use. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" is carried out on different areas of the screed and the outcomes recorded. Only experienced structural engineers observing the BS8204 guidelines are permitted to carry out such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.
