To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish that is durable and hard wearing, time must be devoted to carefully preparing the area before any screed is poured.

Any cleansing chemicals used during this process shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. It is necessary to repair any cracks or crevices in the base to avoid them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into the newly screeded floor. A trustworthy Ringwood screeding contractor will take note of these aspects during the on-site survey and make certain all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be applied after the preparation work has been done to prevent ground moisture getting into the flooring materials and screed. There might be 2 or 3 layers of varying thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

A supplementary airtight barrier could be needed if your house is in a location which is regarded as prone to radon. An airtight membrane could be enough in locations with relatively low radon emissions, however in more extreme situations there might have to be a more complicated extraction and ventilation system to block any harmful radon gases.

Once these steps have been taken the screeders will put on a primer or sealer to the prepared base. A primer helps with the screed to bond successfully to the base surface and different types exist according to which kind of screed is being used. These substances need trained technicians to apply them in the right proportions by using custom-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Before any screed is poured, any under floor heating (if required) will now be installed. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and firmly attached to insulation panels to avoid potential movement in the course of the screed application. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a properly installed system will deliver even warmth in all areas of the floor.

If you are not installing underfloor heating the screed can now be prepared on site and poured. Your screeding contractor will have given you advice and guidance on which screed type is appropriate for your needs, according to your intended use of the room area. After the application of the screed there will be at least 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you're able to walk over the surface, and a 72 hour minimum setting period before the laying of any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds should be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and long lasting surface.

The SR standard of your screed can be verified once it has hardened enough to be walked upon. The test involves using a 2 metre straight edge laid on the surface and any deviations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best level and allows just three millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect quality finish is not needed. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10 millimetres.

If you need load bearing checks, a structural engineer is required to carry out the testing. Using specialised equipment the engineer will ascertain the screed strength and suitability of use in a load bearing setting. A "drop hammer test" will be carried out at several areas on the screed layer and the results recorded. The specialist testing and measurement tools required mean that this can only be conducted by a qualified structural engineer respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.
