It might be a requirement, depending on the proposed use of the space, for a structural engineering survey to conform to building regulations on load bearing, flex strength and point loadings of the screed floor.

The skills and training that a certified screeding specialist brings to your project should guarantee a successful end result and help in prolonging the lifetime of your floors. There are numerous types of screeding and picking the correct mix and installation method is essential to create a quality floor that is both fit for purpose and durable.

Before selecting a screeding company from any operating in the Ruddington area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their price quote, and also make certain that you get multiple quotes. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the figure to look for when reviewing an estimate from Ruddington screeding companies. SR1 is the best level, and while SR2 and SR3 might seem less costly at first glance, they do not guarantee a totally even or flat floor surface. Any errors in the final screeding can cause issues with laying flooring because of indentations, ridges, flat spots in the surface.

Standard Screeds - This is perfect for standard domestic use and comprises a combination of cement and sand. The ratios involved in standard screeds are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. After being laid a standard flooring screed mixture dries out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with underfloor heating systems and is the advised option in these projects. The increased flex and strength provided by the fibres within the screed mix help protect the flooring from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. At roughly one millimetre per day, it has the same drying rate to standard screed.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are high or heavy loading on the floor is necessary, heavy duty screeds allow for maximum strength and durability.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are needed, by a cement and latex mixture. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all types of flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be poured to a depth of just one millimetre, but still provides a strong surface to take a selection of flooring finishes.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to press ahead urgently with the flooring due to time restraints, these screeds dry more speedily than standard screeds. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, subject to the mixture, they are generally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are perfect for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is needed. Polymer screeds are available from many screed manufacturers and on account of their different chemical compositions have distinct drying times for each product.


Screeding installers will need to fully prepare the area before proceeding with any other work so as to guarantee a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. It's important that all contaminants such as paint, debris, grease or oil is removed from the floor before laying any screed, since these can affect the bonding capability that a quality screed needs.

Any cleaning chemicals that are used during this phase shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" through the screed layer and causing imperfections on the finished surface. A competent Ruddington screeding installer will pick up on such aspects during the on-site survey and ensure all preparations are completed before moving on to the next steps in the floor screeding process.

To protect the flooring materials and screeding layer from dampness rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed. Different thicknesses of special polythene might be used as a DPM and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation materials.

A further air-tight barrier could be required if your home or business premises is in a location that is known to be susceptible to radon gas. This could be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in severe cases an extraction and ventilation system is installed under the screed to take away any influx of radon gas from the ground.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeders will apply a primer or sealant to the prepared floor base. These primers and sealers will make certain the screed bonds properly to the base and help to produce a high quality finished floor. These substances require experienced contractors to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using custom-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Now is the time that underfloor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and attached firmly to insulation panels to prevent potential movement in the course of the screed pouring process. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system will deliver even level of warmth all over the floor.

The screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and spread onto the base. Your screeding specialist will give you advice on which screed type is appropriate for your needs, according to your intended use of the room. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least a 24 hour delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 72 hours minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. If you are aiming to wind up with a properly finished and long-lasting floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to heavy duty and standard screeds where this time period will be longer.

You can assess the SR standard of the completed screed as soon as it's set enough to walk on. The test involves the use of a 2 mtr straight edge laid on the floor surface and any deviations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Over the whole screed area, if there aren't any deviations of more than three millimetres from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the whole screed.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a quality finish is not needed. This specification allows for a maximium deviation of ten millimetres.

If your screed has been installed with particular loading in mind then a structural engineer will be required to perform these soundness tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will evaluate the screeding strength and viability of use in a load bearing environment. A "drop hammer test" is carried out at several areas on the screed and the results documented. The precise measurement and testing tools mean this can only be conducted by a trained structural engineer following the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Screeding Ruddington

When a floor's surface needs a certain degree of flexibility, it might be wise to use a latex screed. Latex floor screeds typically comprise two parts - a cementitious powder and a liquid latex component. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds, because the water that's normally used is replaced with the liquid latex.

Used in the levelling of sub-floors, this latex compound provides a surface for the installation of your chosen floor finishes. This is appropriate for use on substrate of concrete, wood, asphalt, quarry tiles and sand/cement, to give a smooth and resilient surface that's perfect for the application of adhesives. Even where there's a bit of movement in your sub-floor, this type of screeding will produce a crack-free, flexible finish.

Latex screeds aren't appropriate where "floating" screeds are desired, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid on top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, such as may be the case when you're screeding over underfloor heating, and screed depths of 50 to 75 millimetres may be necessary.
