A professional screeding contractor will also let you know if a structural engineer is necessary for your project, in order to identify any flex strength, load requirements and point loadings that your screed floor might require to conform with current British Standards and building regulations.

Skilled and qualified tradesmen are essential to a successful outcome and will extend your floor's lifespan through the use of the right type of screed for the proposed purpose of your room. Selecting the correct screeding materials and the best installation technique is vital if you want to finish up with a quality and durable finish for your floor.

Make sure that you get 2 or 3 estimates for your Rishton floor screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each quote is for. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the figure to look for when getting a quotation from your Rishton screeding contractor. Each of the 3 SR levels provide different standards of finish, with SR1 offering the highest quality, with the least amount of deviation over the area. This means that you may need to fix any patches that might cause problems when putting down your final flooring material.

All Rishton screeding companies must observe British Standards (BS8204) and should have some kind of accreditation from screeding material and equipment manufacturers, e.g. Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol. The training and testing of a screeding company by such manufacturers is highlighted by the use of this accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any screeding project involving their materials.

For the screeding of floors in shopping centres, schools, boutiques, hospitals, factories and warehouses, specialist commercial screeders in Rishton will be required.


Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential projects where the blend of sand and cement is ideal for regular floor traffic usage. This mixture comprises a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. After laying a standard flooring screed sets at a rate of 1mm/day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there is a need to progress urgently with the work because of time restraints, this screed dries much faster than standard screeds. They are normally a fibre reinforced type of screed which can dry at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are used in time dependent flooring projects.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is necessary. The curing times vary in accordance with product guidelines.

Screeding Quotes Rishton Lancashire

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are necessary, by a cement and latex formula. Typically used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like tiling on the top of it. These can be as little as 1mm thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use on top of under floor heating. The special fibres in the screed mix increase overall strength and durability while also safeguarding against thermal cracking and shrinkage. It's got a drying rate of one millimetre per day.


To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time should be devoted to preparing the area before any screeding material is laid. The original floor surface should be thoroughly cleaned to eliminate any debris, paint, grease and oil that might affect the adhesion of the screed.

Screeding Near Rishton (BB1)

If cleaning products were used it's vital to remove any residues of soap or detergent, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. At this point cracks need to be mended since these can travel up through a laid screed and be reflected in the finished surface. A competent Rishton screeding installer will address such aspects during a on-site survey and ensure all preparations are complete before moving on to the next steps in the screeding process.

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

If the area where you live is at risk from radon gas then another barrier is needed to stop this harmful gas from entering from the ground. This can be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in severe instances an extraction and ventilation system will be installed underneath the screed to draw out any influx of radon gas from ground level.

The final step of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealer. These primers and sealers will make certain the screed bonds successfully to the base and help to create a quality finished floor. These products need qualified tradesmen to apply them in the right proportions by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.

If you are going to be installing under floor heating, now is the time that it will need to be set out and installed. The cables and heating pipes are firmly attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure they're positioned correctly. Warmth will be evenly spread across a floor area in a properly fitted under floor heating system, and with it being an efficient method of heating, it is an excellent choice for most Rishton home renovation projects.

If you aren't putting in underfloor heating the screed can now be prepared in situ and poured. Your screeding company will give you advice on which form of screed is suitable for your requirements, according to your proposed use of the room. After the pouring of the screed there is a minimum 24 hours (for quick drying screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a 72 hour minimum curing time for the laying of any floor coverings. If you are laying heavy duty or standard screeds the drying time is increased and you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best possible finish to your floor.

You can evaluate the SR standard of the completed screed once it is hard enough to walk on. The standard SR test involves the use of a two metre straight edge to check for any variations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole area, if there aren't any deviations greater than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the entire floor surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish is not needed. This classification allows for a maximium deviation depth of ten millimetres.

If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is necessary to conduct the testing. The assessment will make sure that your newly laid screed is suitable for the load point requirements set down in the site survey. The screeding could be given a drop hammer test to assess strength and flexibility in various areas. Only certified structural engineers following the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to conduct these testing and sign off on the structural safety of screed flooring.

Latex Screeding Rishton

It is better to use a latex screed when a bit of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor. Usually coming in 2 parts, latex screeds comprise a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex additive. The latex liquid part actually replaces the water which would normally be used in a screed mix, and is far more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed.

This latex screed compound is used to level-out a sub-floor before the final decorative surface is laid. This screeding is suitable for sub-floors made from concrete, asphalt, wood, stone tiles or sand/cement, is ideal for the application of adhesives and gives a smooth and durable surface. Even where there happens to be a bit of movement on your sub-floor, this type of screeding will provide a flexible, crack-free finish.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid over a membrane of either thermal or acoustic insulation, screed depths of 50 to 65 millimetres may be necessary, and latex floor screeds aren't suitable for this purpose.
