A professional screeding specialist will also inform you if a structural engineer is needed for your undertaking, to identify point loadings, flex strength and load requirements that your screed floor may need to conform with building regulations and British Standards.

Bringing in a qualified and skilled contractor will guarantee you use the appropriate form of screed for the room's anticipated purpose to extend the lifetime of your flooring. Selecting the correct screeding materials and the method of installation is crucial if you want to finish up with a durable and quality finish for your floor.

Before deciding upon a screeding specialist from any operating in the Tranent area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quote, and also make sure that you get two or three price quotes. For residential homes a quotation will generally be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) standard of SR1 or SR2. SR2 and SR3 may be less costly options, however the floor screeding finish could have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect quality of finish. Any error in the final screeding can cause problems in laying flooring due to ridges, indentations, flat spots in the floor surface.

British Standards BS8204 lays out the guidelines and regulations that all Tranent screeding contractors is obliged to follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc), they must be accredited by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. This accreditation program showcases a firm's performance and training in the application of a manufacturer's products.

Tranent commercial screeders could be involved in screeding floors in shops, warehouses, factories, restaurants, schools and hospitals.


Standard Screeds - A combination of sand and cement which is acceptable for standard domestic usage. The ratios involved are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. After being laid a standard flooring screed mixture sets at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is necessary on account of construction requirements, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength resolution to the problem. Polymer screeds are made by a number of screed manufacturers and because of their varying chemical compositions have distinct curing times for each product.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are required, by a cement and latex compound. Mostly used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks on top of it. This liquid screed can be laid to a depth of just one millimetre, but still provides a high strength base for a wide variety of flooring materials.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that is designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where the maximum possible strength and durability is crucial.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area ASAP a fast drying screed can be utilised. They are typically a fibre reinforced type of screed which can dry at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are employed in time-sensitive flooring projects.


Screeding installers will need to fully prepare all areas prior to any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any debris, oil, paint and grease on the existing floor level can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be removed.

Screeding Near Tranent (EH33)

If cleaning products have been used it is important to remove any remnants of soap etc, and leave the surface to dry naturally. It's essential to fix any cracks in the base to avoid them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. An on-site survey will allow your Tranent screeding installer to pinpoint these preparation areas and finish them before commencing to pour the screeding layer.

To shield the flooring materials and screeding layer from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be laid. The DPM is made of thick polythene and various layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screeding.

Another air-tight barrier could be necessary if your building is in an area which is known to be susceptible to radon gas emissions. This could be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in severe instances an extraction and ventilation system is installed beneath the screeding to take away any influx of radon gas from ground level.

Once these steps have been taken the screeders will apply a sealer or primer to the prepared base surface. Primers and sealers help with the bonding process and are special applications matched to the kind of screed that's being used. Owing to their specialist nature, only qualified screeding specialists in Tranent are capable of using them correctly, safely and through the use of bespoke equipment for this task.

If you're installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be properly set out and installed. The wires and heating pipes are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure that they're held in the correct position. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should provide even warmth all over the floor.

Of course, if you're not putting in underfloor heating, you can skip this stage and apply the screeding. The requirements of the room will determine the form of screeding that is used. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked on, and a further 72 hours minimum before you can install any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds should be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and provide an even and stable surface.

As soon as the screed has set it can be quality checked to verify the SR level. The test involves using a 2 metre long straight-edge laid on the surface and any deviations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less as measured across the entire floor area shows your screed to be of the highest quality and classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screeded surface 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 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish is not needed. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation of 10mm.

If your screed floor has been laid with particular loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be needed to carry out tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will ascertain the screed surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. This can include a drop hammer test which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. Any screed floor that's got load bearing requirements must be okayed by a fully qualified structural engineer respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeding Tranent

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a certain degree of flexibility is needed, it may be an advantage to apply a latex screed, as opposed to one with a more rigid finish. Latex floor screeds generally 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 latex liquid, meaning it's quicker drying and more flexible than other standard screeds.

This latex product is used for levelling sub-floors prior to the laying of your chosen decorative covering. This is appropriate for use on substrate of concrete, asphalt, sand/cement, wood and quarry tiles, to provide a smooth, durable surface that's perfect for the application of adhesives. If there is any movement in the sub-floor this latex screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish on which you can lay your chosen floor coverings.

Latex floor screeds are not suitable where "floating" screeds are required, for instance when a screed is being laid over a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, such as could be the case when you're screeding on top of underfloor heating, and depths of 50mm-75mm may be needed.
