Floor Screeding Salisbury Wiltshire (SP1)

It might be necessary, based on the intended use of the area in question, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform with building regulations on point loadings, flex strength and load bearing of the screed floor.

Bringing in a qualified and highly trained contractor will guarantee that you get the appropriate kind of screed for the room's anticipated usage to extend the life of your floor. A correct mixture of screed and the way it is laid is also important to guarantee the ultimate intergrity of your floor surface.

Before selecting a screeding specialist from the many based in the Salisbury area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their estimate, and also make sure you get two or three price quotes. The quote should be based on what is known as the SR, or Surface Regularity number. SR2 and SR3 could be cheaper options, however the finished floor surface might have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect quality of finish. This means that you might have to correct any patches that may cause problems when putting down your finished flooring solution.

The guidelines and regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by all Salisbury floor screeding companies and they should also be certified by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc.) to prove their competence and safe working practices. This accreditation program demonstrates a contractor's high quality performance and training in the usage of a manufacturer's products.

Salisbury commercial screeders could be involved in floor screeding in factories, shopping centres, salons, warehouses, schools and hospitals.


Standard Screeds - A mix of cement and sand which is perfect for standard domestic use. This mixture uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of 1mm per day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favourite choice of professional contractors for use with under floor heating systems. The special fibres in the screed enhance it's strength and durability whilst also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It's got a setting rate of 1mm per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry at a quicker rate and allow you to use the screeded area much faster. The majority of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are ideal for a wide range of projects where the swifter curing rate of 3-7mm is a big advantage.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are required, by a cement and latex mixture. Largely used to finalise a poor substrate level or damaged floor in order to lay a new flooring surface, such as tiles on top of it. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is required. Maker's guidelines for drying times differ across the product ranges.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is required, heavy duty screeds provide maximum durability and strength.


Screeding installers will need to fully prepare all areas before proceeding with any other work in order to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any oil, debris, paint and grease on the existing floor surface can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and should be eradicated.

If any products were used during this stage it's vital to ensure that no residues of detergents, soaps or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. At this point any cracks need to be mended because these can easily travel up through the laid screed and be reflected in the finished floor surface. During a site survey the screeding specialist will notice what preparations are needed before any actual screeding work starts.

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. The DPM is made out of thick polythene sheeting and various layers might be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon gas then an additional barrier is required to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. A simple airtight membrane could be enough in places with relatively low radon measurements, however in more serious cases there may have to be a more sophisticated ventilation and extraction system to take away any ground penetrating radon.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a sealant or primer. A primer helps with the screed to successfully bond to the base surface and different types exist based on which kind of screed is being applied. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, by professional screeding contractors in Salisbury following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

If you are going to be installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be properly laid out and installed. The underfloor heating system will be carefully positioned and firmly attached to insulation panels to stop potential movement during screed pouring. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system should deliver even warmth all over the floor.

Naturally, if you're not installing underfloor heating, you can skip this step and get on with applying the screed. Your proposed use of the room will assist your screeding company on what kind of screed is right for your needs. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least a twenty four hour delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further seventy two hours minimum before you are able to install any flooring materials. If you are laying heavy duty or standard screeds the setting time is increased and you should observe the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best possible finish for your floor.

You can evaluate the SR standard of the finished screeding once it is hard enough for walking on. The standard SR test uses a 2m long straight-edge to check for any variations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3mm or less as measured over the whole floor area shows your screed to be of the finest quality and specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the entire screeded surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish isn't necessary. This classification allows for a maximium deviation of 10mm.

If your screed floor has been laid with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer will be required to conduct the tests. The assessment will make certain that your new screed surface is suitable for the load point requirements set down in the site survey. The screeding should be subjected to what is known as a "drop hammer test" to gauge flexibility and strength in distinct areas. The precise testing and measurement tools involved mean that this can only be conducted by a trained structural engineer obeying the guidelines of BS8204.
