It might be necessary, contingent on the proposed use of the room, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform with building regulations on flex strength, load requirements and point loadings of the screed floor.

The training and skills that a certified screeding technician brings to your project will guarantee a high quality outcome and help in prolonging the life of your flooring. There are many different types of screeding and choosing the right mix and installation approach is vital to achieve a high quality floor that is both long-lasting and fit for purpose.

There are many screeding contractors in the Rugby area so if possible get multiple price quotes for your screeding project before picking a company and know to what standard of finish is it for. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to watch out for when reviewing a quote from Rugby screeding companies. SR2 and SR3 may be more affordable options, although the finished floor surface may have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect quality of finish. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there will be flat spots or ridges that may cause issues when putting down your final floor surface.

British Standards BS8204 lays down the guidelines and regulations that all Rugby screeding installers are required to follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc), they should be accredited by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. A contractor holding accreditations demonstrates that they've been trained and assessed in using these products and can deliver a high standard of service in all aspects of their installation.

Rugby commercial screeders may be involved in floor screeding in shops, warehouses, hospitals, factories, boutiques and schools.


Standard Screeds - This is perfect for everyday domestic use and is a combination of cement and sand. This mixture uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. The standard flooring screed will dry at a rate of one millimetre thickness per day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with underfloor heating and is the suggested choice in such projects. The fibres in the screed improve it's strength and durability while also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It has a drying rate of 1mm per day.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is essential. Polymer screeds are made by a number of manufacturers and owing to their diverse chemical compositions have specific setting times for each product.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Designed for maximum strength and durability on floors where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor base is necessary.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries rapidly and allows you to use the floor area much sooner. Most of the fast drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are ideal for a wide array of flooring projects where the speedier drying rate of 3-7mm is a big advantage.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is required this mixture of latex and cement is used to produce SR1 quality screeding. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all types of flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of just one millimetre, but still provides a high strength surface for a selection of flooring finishes.


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

If cleansing products have been used it is crucial to remove any traces of soap etc, and leave the surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" through your screed layer and resulting in deviations on the final surface. During an on-site survey your Rugby screeding installer will establish what preparations are needed before starting to work on the screeding.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed once the preparation work has been completed to prevent ground moisture affecting the flooring materials and screeding. The DPM is made of thick polythene sheet and various layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If your home is located in an area where radon is found an extra barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from seeping through. This can be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in severe situations a ventilation system will need to be installed underneath the screeding to draw out any inflow of air and gas from the ground.

The final stage of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a sealer or primer. These sealers and primers will make sure that the screed bonds successfully to the floor base and help produce a high quality finished floor. Because of their specialist nature, only skilled screeders in Rugby should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and using equipment which is made for this task.

If you are installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be properly laid out and installed. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and attached firmly to insulation panels to avoid any movement during screed application. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system will deliver even level of warmth in all areas of the floor.

Obviously, if you're not fitting under floor heating, you simply skip this step and get on with applying the screed. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the type of screeding used. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before you are able to install any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds must be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and long lasting surface.

The SR level of your screeding can be ascertained once it has hardened sufficiently to be walked upon. The basic SR test uses a 2 metre long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less as measured over the entire floor area shows your screeding to be of the finest quality and is categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is ten millimetres or less the screeding quality is classed as SR3 and is the standard required for garage and utility areas.

It may also be necessary for a structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. This assessment will ascertain the strength of the screed surface and the suitability for its intended use. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" is carried out on several areas of the screed layer and the outcomes noted. The precise testing and measurement tools required mean this can only be carried out by a competent structural engineer heeding the BS8204 guidelines.
