To shield the screed layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed. The DPM is made out of thick polythene sheeting and different layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

If your property is situated in a place where radon is found an additional barrier layer is needed to prevent radon gas from entering. An airtight membrane may be enough in locations with low levels of radon, but in more severe situations there might need to be a more sophisticated ventilation and extraction system to remove any ground penetrating radon.

The final stage of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealant. Primers and sealers help with the bonding process and are specialist applications specifically designed for the kind of screed being applied.

The screed can now be prepared in situ and spread onto the base. Your use of the room will help your screeding company on what type of screed is best for your requirements. Remember that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you're able to walk over any screeded surface and at least seventy two hours before any flooring materials can be laid. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds must be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even surface.

Once the screed has solidified it can be quality checked to verify its SR level. The test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge laid down upon the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Over the whole floor area, if there aren't any deviations of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, you've got a top level SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface deviates from the straight edge by 5 millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the finish is comparatively immaterial SR3 is the specification and should have a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If your screed floor has been laid with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be necessary to conduct the tests. This assessment will determine the overall strength of the screeded surface and the suitability for its intended use. This should include a drop hammer test which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Only trained structural engineers heeding the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to perform these testing and sign off on the structural safety of the screeding.
