Poole Screeding & Floor Levelling Services

Floor Screeding Poole Dorset (BH15): When you're renovating your Poole home that has damaged or uneven floors, or maybe converting a basement or cellar to useful living space, an established floor screeding company can offer you a good starting point. Floor screeding gives a smooth finish to a basic sub-base, and allows you to lay your final layer of flooring material, (carpets, tiles, boards etc) on top of it. If you want your floors to last then floor screeding is one of the most important factors in any building or renovation project.

They will also assess if a structural engineer is required to make sure that any flex strength, load bearing and point loadings are met in accordance with building and construction regulations.

Bringing in a highly trained and skilled specialist will guarantee that you get the appropriate type of screed for the room's proposed purpose to extend the lifetime of your flooring. Picking the correct screeding materials and the method of installation is vital if you want to finish up with a durable and quality finish for your floor surface.

Ensure that you get 2 or 3 price quotes for your Poole based screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each price quote is for. For residential properties a quotation will normally be provided for a Surface Regularity (SR) calculation of SR1 or SR2. SR2 and SR3 might be more affordable options, although the finished floor surface may have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect quality of finish. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there will be ridges or flat spots that may cause issues when laying your final flooring surface (carpet, wood, tile etc).

The guidelines and regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by all Poole floor screeding contractors and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc.) to verify their competence and safe working practices. This accreditation program highlights a contractor's high quality performance and training in the usage of a manufacturer's products.

For the screeding of floors in schools, hospitals, shops, warehouses, pubs and factories, dedicated commercial screeders in Poole will be required.


Standard Screeds - This is ideal for standard domestic usage and comprises a mixture of cement and sand. The ratios involved are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of one millimetre thickness per day.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is necessary because of construction requirements, a polymer screed provides a high strength solution to the problem. On account of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying curing times which you can verify by checking manufacturer's own product guidelines.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is required this blend of latex and cement is employed to produce SR1 quality screeding. This is mostly needed to produce a smooth, clean floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a finish onto which all forms of flooring materials can be laid. Even with a thickness of one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favourite choice of professional contractors for use in combination with underfloor heating systems. This is because of the improved durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the fibres within the screed mix. It's got a setting rate of 1mm per day.

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

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to press ahead urgently with the flooring due to time constraints, these screeds dry much faster than standard screeds. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, determined by the mix, they are normally a fibre reinforced screed and are suitable for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.

Screeding Quotes Poole Dorset


Good preparation is essential for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. It is important that all contaminants such as debris, grease, paint or oil is eradicated from the base before pouring any screed, as these can affect the adhesion capability that a quality screed needs.

Any cleaning chemicals used during this stage shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor any cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" through the screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the finished floor surface. An experienced Poole screeding installer will address such aspects during a site survey and make certain that all preparations are complete before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be laid. The DPM is made from thick polythene sheet and various layers could be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

Another airtight barrier may be required if your home is in a location which is known to be susceptible to radon gas. If radon occurs in severe doses then a full ventilation system might be needed under the screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from ground level.

As soon as the floor base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealer or primer is then put on. Primers and sealers help the bonding process and are special applications according to the sort of screed that is being applied. Equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by professional screeding companies in Poole observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and checked before screeding is poured. The heating pipes and cables are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure they're held in the correct position. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system should give an even warmth in all areas of the floor.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared in situ and applied to the floor base. The requirements of the room will determine the sort of screeding used. After the pouring of the screed there will be at least twenty four hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you're able to walk over the surface, and a seventy two hours minimum curing period before the laying of any floor coverings. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds should be followed in order to achieve a quality finish and provide an even and stable surface.

As soon as the screed has solidified it can be quality checked to confirm the SR level. Using a 2m straight-edge the surface is checked for any deviations, ridges and dips 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 industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the entire floor surface.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is fairly unimportant the SR3 is the standard and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

There might also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. The testing will make certain that your new screeded surface is viable for the load point requirements set down in the original site survey. An assessment called the drop hammer test is carried out on several areas of the screed and the outcomes documented. The specialist testing and measurement tools mean this can only be undertaken by a trained structural engineer heeding the guidelines of BS8204.
