Floor Screeding Renfrew Scotland (PA4)

It may be necessary, based on the intended use of the space, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform to building regulations on point loadings, load requirements and flex strength of the screed floor.

A qualified and skilled work force is necessary for a successful result and will extend your floor's lifespan by making use of the right kind of screed for your room's allocated purpose. A correct mixture of screed and the techniques used for laying it are also crucial to guarantee the ultimate durability of your floor.

Before choosing a screeding company from the many based in the Renfrew area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quote, and also make certain that you get multiple quotations. For domestic properties a quote will usually be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) standard of SR1 or SR2. Each of the three SR levels provide different qualities of finish, with SR1 being the highest, with the smallest amount of deviation over the area of the floor. This could mean that you may have to fix any patches that could cause issues when laying your final flooring material.

The rules and regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by any Renfrew floor screeding contractor and they should also be certified by the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc.) to confirm their competence and safe working practices. This accreditation scheme highlights a firm's training and ability in the usage of a manufacturer's product.

Commercial screeders in Renfrew will probably undertake screeding projects in factories, warehouses, hospitals, schools, hotels and shops.


Standard Screeds - Used in domestic flooring projects where the combination of cement and sand is okay for normal footfall usage. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the usual mixture for standard flooring screeds. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of 1mm each day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum strength and durability in places where traffic is expected to be high or specific loading of the floor base is necessary.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use over the top of under floor heating. This is because of the improved durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the fibres within the screed mix. It dries out at the same rate as a standard screed of 1mm per day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is required this formula of latex and cement is used to achieve SR1 level floor screeding. Typically used to finalise a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, like tiles over it. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is necessary because of construction requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength resolution to the problem. Polymer screeds are made by a number of manufacturers and due to their varying chemical compositions have distinct curing times for each individual product.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the floor as soon as possible a fast drying screed may be used. The majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are appropriate for a whole host of projects where the swifter drying rate of three to seven millimetres is a welcome advantage.


Screeding companies will need to carefully prepare the area prior to any other work in order to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It's crucial that all contaminants such as oil, grease, loose debris or paint is removed from the floor surface before pouring any screed, as these can affect the bonding capability that a quality screed demands.

Screeding Near Renfrew (PA4)

Any cleansing products which are used during this phase should leave no residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. It is essential to repair any cracks in the floor surface to avoid them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. During a site survey the screeding contractor will establish what preparation work is required before any actual screeding starts.

Before any screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be put down to protect the final flooring and screed from dampness. There may be two or three layers of different thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

If your home is situated in a place where radon is present an extra barrier layer is essential to stop radon gas from getting through. A simple air-tight membrane might be enough in places with relatively low radon emissions, however in more serious situations there may need to be a more complex extraction and ventilation system to remove any harmful radon.

As soon as the floor base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a primer or sealer is then applied. A primer helps with the screed bonding correctly to the base and different types exist based on which screed type is being applied. These products need skilled technicians to apply them in the right proportions by using airless sprays and other custom-made equipment.

If you are installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be laid out and installed. Insulation panels can be put in place and the wires and heating pipes will be firmly attached to prevent any movement whilst the screed is being poured. Warmth will be evenly spread across the floor in a skillfully installed under floor heating system, and along with it being an effective choice of heating, it is an excellent choice for many Renfrew renovation projects.

Of course, if you aren't fitting under floor heating, you can skip this stage and get on with applying the floor screed. The specific requirements of the room will determine the type of screeding that's used. Remember that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any screeded surfaces and at least 3 days before any flooring can be fitted. This timescale is increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to the letter to produce the best finish and durability of the floor.

You can evaluate the SR level of the finished screeding as soon as it is hardened enough for walking on. The test involves using a 2 mtr long straight-edge laid on the surface and any fluctuations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3mm or less being measured over the entire floor area shows your screeding to be of the highest quality and classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the entire screed.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is relatively unimportant SR3 is the standard and has a deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If your screed has been installed with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer will be needed to conduct these soundness tests. Using specialised equipment the engineer will evaluate the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. The screed should be subjected to a drop hammer test to determine flexibility and strength at different points. Any screed floor that's got point load requirements must be approved by a fully qualified structural engineer heeding the British Standards BS8204 regulations.

Latex Screed Renfrew

When a floor's surface needs a certain amount of flexibility, it may be best to use a latex self-levelling floor screed. Typically coming in two parts, latex screeds comprise a cement-based smoothing compound, and a liquid latex component. The liquid latex part actually replaces the water which would typically be used for mixing screed, and is more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds.

This latex compound is used for levelling-out sub-floors prior to the laying of your chosen decorative surface. Appropriate for substrate of wood, concrete, asphalt, sand/cement and quarry tiles, this gives the ideal surface for the application of flooring adhesives that's smooth and durable. Even where there is a bit of movement in your subfloor, this latex floor screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish.

Latex screeds are not a suitable choice where "floating" screeds are required, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid over a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, such as could be the case when you're screeding over underfloor heating, and screed depths of 50mm-75mm may be necessary.
