Floor Screeding St Agnes Cornwall (TR5)

It may be necessary, contingent on the proposed use of the area, for a structural engineering survey to abide by building regulations on flex strength, load requirements and point loadings of the screed floor.

Skilled and qualified trades-people are necessary for a successful outcome and will extend the life of your floor by making use of the right type of screed for the proposed purpose of your room. Selecting the right screeding materials and the best installation technique is critical if you want to end up with a quality and durable finish for your floor.

Ensure you get two or three estimates for your St Agnes floor screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting each quote. The price quote might be based on what is known as the Surface Regularity, or SR figure. SR1 is the highest level, and while SR2 and SR3 might be cheaper initially, they do not guarantee a totally flat or even floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 level could mean there are ridges or flat spots that could cause issues when installing your final flooring surface (carpet, wood, tile etc).

British Standards BS8204 lays down the guidelines and regulations that all St Agnes screeding installers must follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc), they must be approved by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. The training and testing of a screeding contractor by such manufacturers is highlighted by the use of this accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any flooring project which involves their materials.

For larger floor screeding projects in shops, schools, salons, hospitals, factories and warehouses, specialist commercial screeders in St Agnes will be needed.


Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic flooring projects where the combination of sand and cement is acceptable for regular footfall use. This mix comprises a five to one ratio of sand to cement. The standard flooring screed dries at a rate of one millimetre thickness per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to use the area in question as quickly as possible a fast drying screed might be a good choice. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm/day, depending on the specialised mix, they're generally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are suitable for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.

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

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is needed this mixture of latex and cement is employed to produce SR1 level floor screeding. It's mostly used to produce a smooth, clean floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. The liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of just 1mm, but still provides a high strength base to take a varied selection of flooring finishes.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with underfloor heating systems and is the preferred choice in such projects. The improved strength and flexibility offered by the special fibres in this screed help protect the floor from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. At about one millimetre per day, it has the same drying rate to standard floor screed.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is needed due to building requirements, a polymer screed provides a high strength solution to this problem. Manufacturer's guidelines for setting times are different across the product ranges.


To ensure that the screeding is of a high quality finish which is durable and hard wearing, time should be devoted to carefully preparing the area prior to any screed being laid. The original floor surfaces should be cleaned to eliminate any oil, grease, paint and debris which might adversely affect the bond of the screeding.

Screeding Near St Agnes (TR5)

If any cleaning products were used during this stage it's vital to make sure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor all cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the final surface. During a site survey your St Agnes screeding installer will notice what preparations are necessary before starting to work on the screeding.

Before any screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed to protect the final flooring and screed from moisture. Different thicknesses of polythene sheeting might be used as a DPM and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.

If your home is located in a place where radon is present an extra barrier layer is essential to prevent radon gas from getting through. This can be just a simple airtight membrane, or in severe instances an extraction and ventilation system is installed underneath the floor screed to take away any inflow of air and gas from ground level.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeding company will put on a sealer or primer to the prepared floor base. A primer helps with the screed bonding correctly to the base surface and different types exist based upon which screed type is being applied. Equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a primer or sealant, by certified screeding installers in St Agnes observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and tested before screeding is applied. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and mounted firmly on insulation panels to avoid potential movement in the course of the screed pouring. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a properly installed system will give an even level of warmth in all areas of the floor.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared in situ and spread onto the base. Your proposed use of the room will help the screeding contractor on what type of floor screed is appropriate for your requirements. Remember that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you are able to walk on any screeded surface and a minimum three days before any floor coverings can be applied. This period is longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's instructions must be followed to produce the optimal finish and durability of the floor.

Once the screeding has hardened it can be quality checked to establish its SR level. Through the use of a 2 mtr straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any deviations, ridges and dips in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3mm or less as measured over the entire floor area shows your screed to be of the highest quality and is specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screed has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5mm or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10 millimetres or less the screed quality is categorised as SR3 and is fine for utility and garage areas.

There might also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to do a soundness test. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will evaluate the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. The screed should be subjected to a drop hammer test to gauge strength and flexibility in various areas. Only qualified structural engineers applying the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are allowed to perform such testing and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.

Latex Screed St Agnes

When a certain amount of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface you may find that the application of a latex self-levelling floor screed will be best. Latex screeds typically comprise 2 parts - a cementitious powder and a liquid latex mixture. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the liquid latex, meaning that it is quicker drying and more flexible than other standard screeds.

This latex product is used for levelling sub-floors in advance of the installation of your chosen decorative covering. Producing a smooth and resilient surface which is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives, this is is appropriate for use on subfloors of wood, stone tiles, concrete, asphalt and sand/cement. Even where there happens to be movement on your subfloor, this type of floor screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish.

When a screed is being laid on top of a membrane of either thermal or acoustic insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex screeds aren't appropriate, because in this case (usually when screeding over underfloor heating), you will probably need a screed thickness of 50 to 65 millimetres.

Granolithic Screeding St Agnes

Granolithic screeding is an extremely popular flooring material which is commonly used in heavy-duty environments due to its strength and durability. It's made from a mixture of sand, cement, aggregate, and sometimes pigments, which are combined to form a mortar-like mixture. The mixture is poured onto the floor and then smoothed to a level surface.

Granolithic screeding is normally used in industrial and commercial buildings as well as in high-traffic areas in residential buildings. It is also commonly used in areas where chemical and abrasion resistance are needed. The resulting surface is smooth and hard, which makes it easy to clean and maintain, and provides an outstanding base for other flooring products.

The granolithic screeding process involves a number of steps, including preparation of the concrete base, mixing of the screed mixture, laying of the mixture, and curing of the screed. Proper mixing, curing and application methods are important to ensure the strength and durability of the final surface. In addition, the screed should be allowed to cure fully before any flooring materials are installed over it.... READ MORE.
