Screeding Quotes Wadebridge Cornwall

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex mixture which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all kinds of flooring materials to be laid. These can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use on top of under floor heating. The special fibres in the screed mix increase it's strength and durability while also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. At around one millimetre per day, it has an identical setting rate to standard screed.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries rapidly and allows you to use the screeded area much faster. These are generally a fibre reinforced screed which can dry out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are employed in time dependent projects.

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

Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is required. On account of their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying curing times which can be verified by viewing manufacturer's own product guidelines.


Preparation is essential for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. It's vital that all contaminants such as debris, paint, grease or oil is eradicated from the floor surface before pouring any screed, because these can affect the adhesion process that a quality floor screed needs.

Screeding Near Wadebridge (PL27)

If cleansing products have been used it's important to remove any traces of detergent or soap, and leave the surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor any cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" through your screed layer and resulting in deviations on the final floor surface. During an on-site survey the screeding company will notice what preparations are necessary before starting to work on screeding the floor.

Before the screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be put down to protect the screed and final flooring from moisture damage. There could be two or three layers of different thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.

If the area is susceptible to radon then a further barrier is required to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. A simple airtight membrane may be suitable in locations with low emissions of radon, but in more severe cases there may need to be a more sophisticated extraction system to remove any harmful radon gases.

Once these steps have been taken the screeding company will apply a primer or sealant to the prepared base surface. A primer assists in the screed to bond successfully to the base surface and different varieties exist based upon which kind of screed is being used. These materials need professional technicians to apply them in the correct proportions by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.

If required, this is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct manner. The wires and heating pipes are firmly mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement and ensure that they're held in the correct position. Warmth will be evenly spread across the floor in a professionally fitted under floor heating system, and with it being an effective choice of heating, it is a good choice for most Wadebridge home renovation projects.

If you are not putting in underfloor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the sort of screeding used. Bear in mind that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you are able to walk on any laid surfaces and a minimum three days before any flooring can be laid. If you're aiming to wind up with a nicely finished and long-lasting floor surface you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where this waiting period will be longer.

Once the screeding has set it can be checked for quality to verify its SR standard. The test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge laid down upon the floor surface and any variations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Disparities of three millimetres or less being measured across the entire floor area shows your screed to be of the highest quality and is categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole screeded floor.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish isn't required. This classification allows for a maximium deviation depth of 10 millimetres.

It may also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to do a soundness test. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will verify the screed surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. The screed layer should be subjected to a "drop hammer test" to gauge strength and flexibility at specific points. Only fully qualified structural engineers following the BS8204 guidelines are permitted to perform these testing and sign off on the structural integrity of the screeding.

Latex Floor Screed Wadebridge

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a level of flexibility is necessary, it will be best to use a latex screeding, as opposed to one with a more rigid finish. Latex floor screeds come in two parts - a bag and a bottle - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cement powder. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the liquid latex, which makes it quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

Used in the levelling of subfloors, this latex product creates a suitable surface for the installation of the final floor finish. This is suitable for subfloors made from asphalt, quarry tiles, concrete, sand/cement or wood, is ideal for the application of adhesives and gives a durable and smooth surface. If your subfloor has any movement in it, this type of latex floor screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish, on which your chosen floor coverings can be laid.

When using a "floating" screed, i.e. when screeding is being laid on top of underfloor heating, depths of 50 to 75 millimetres may be required, and latex screeds aren't appropriate in this case.
