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

The skills and training that a qualified screeding specialist brings to your project will guarantee a successful result and help in extending the life of your floors. There are many types of floor screeding and selecting the correct mix and installation approach is crucial if you are to create a top quality floor that's hard-wearing and fit for purpose.

Ensure that you get more than one quotation for your South Petherton based screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting a quote. The quotation could be based on what is called the SR, or Surface Regularity figure. Each of the three SR levels provide different qualities of finish, with SR1 being the best, with the lowest amount of deviation over the area. Any errors in the screeding may cause problems in laying flooring because of flat spots, ridges, indentations in the surface.

British Standards BS8204 lays out the guidelines and regulations that all South Petherton screeding companies must follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc), they should be certified by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. This accreditation program demonstrates a contractor's training and ability in the use of a manufacturer's product.

For the screeding of floors in warehouses, schools, factories, hotels, hospitals and shops, skilled commercial screeders in South Petherton will be required.


Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic projects where the combination of sand and cement is acceptable for everyday footfall use. The ratios involved are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. After being laid a standard screed sets at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area in question at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed can be employed. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are suitable for a wide array of projects where the swifter curing rate of 3-7mm is a considerable advantage.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are high or heavy loading of the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds deliver maximum durability and strength.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this mix of of cement and latex is employed to produce SR1 level screeding. It is largely needed to provide a smooth, level floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a finish onto which all types of flooring materials can be laid. Even with a depth of just 1mm, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is essential. Polymer screeds are made by a number of screed manufacturers and on account of their diverse chemical compositions have specific drying times for each product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with under floor heating and is the preferred choice in these projects. The greater strength and flex provided by the special fibres in this screed help protect the flooring from thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Screeding companies will have to prepare the area before any other work in order to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any grease, oil, debris and paint on the existing floor surface can affect the bonding of the screed, and should be eliminated.

If cleaning products have been used it is vital to remove any traces of soap, detergent etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. It is essential to fix any crevices or cracks in the surface to prevent them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into the newly screeded floor. An on-site survey will enable the screeding installer to identify these preparation areas and complete them before beginning to lay the screeding.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down after the preparation work has been done to prevent ground dampness getting into the flooring materials and screed. The DPM is made of thick polythene and various layers could be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If the area is susceptible to radon then another barrier is required to prevent the gas from entering from the ground. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a complete ventilation and extraction system might be needed under the layer of screed which will remove any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

As soon as the floor base has been properly prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealant or primer is then put on. These sealers and primers will make certain the screed bonds perfectly to the floor base and help produce a quality finished floor. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, by qualified screeding contractors in South Petherton following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

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 secured firmly to insulation panels to avoid potential movement during screed pouring process. Warmth is evenly spread across a floor area in a properly fitted underfloor heating system, and along with it being an effective choice of heating, it's a good choice for most South Petherton home restoration projects.

The screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and applied to the floor base. Your screeding specialist will give you advice and guidance on which form of screed is appropriate for your needs, according to your proposed use of the room. Don't forget that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk on any laid surface and a minimum seventy two hours before any flooring materials can be laid. Such periods will be increased for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to the letter to achieve the best finish and durability of the floor.

The SR standard of your screed can be verified once it's solidified sufficiently to be stepped onto. Through the use of a 2 metre straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any deviations, dips and ridges in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there are no deviations greater than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a quality finish is not needed. This classification can have a maximum permissible deviation of 10mm.

If your screed floor has been laid with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer is going to be required to perform the assessment. This assessment will ascertain the strength of the screeded surface and the viability for its intended use. A "drop hammer test" is performed at several areas on the screed layer and the results recorded. Only qualified structural engineers following the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to carry out such testing and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.

Latex Screeds South Petherton

When a floor's surface needs a bit of flexibility, it might be best to use a latex screeding. Latex screeds generally comprise two parts - a cement-based powder, and a liquid latex additive. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than standard screeds, as the water that is normally used is replaced with the latex liquid.

This latex screed is used to level a subfloor prior to the final decorative surface being installed. Providing a smooth, durable surface that's ideal for the application of flooring adhesives, this screed is is suitable for use on substrate of sand/cement, wood, concrete, stone tiles and asphalt. Even if there happens to be a bit of movement on your subfloor, this type of latex screeding will produce a crack-free, flexible finish.

With "floating" screeds, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid over a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, latex floor screeds will not be suitable. Floating screeds with a depth of 50-75mm are often used on top of underfloor heating.
