Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a reduced thickness. The drying times vary according to product guidelines.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry at a quicker rate and allow you to use the floor area much faster. They are normally a fibre reinforced type of screed which can dry out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are used in time critical projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option where under floor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Wootton Bassett. The fibres in this screed increase it's durability and strength whilst also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex compound. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all flooring materials to be laid. They can be as little as 1mm in depth, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum durability and strength on floors where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor is necessary.


Screeding companies will have to prepare the area before any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It is important that any contaminants such as paint, oil, loose debris or grease is removed from the floor before pouring any screed, because these can affect the adhesion process that a good quality floor screed requires.

Screeding Near Wootton Bassett (SN4)

If cleaning products have been used it is essential to remove any remnants of detergent, soap etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. At this point cracks should be repaired since these can travel up through your newly laid screed and be visible in the finished surface. A site survey will enable the screeding company to identify this preparation work and tackle it before beginning to lay the screeding.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed. Different thicknesses of polythene sheets could be used as a DPM and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.

If the area is susceptible to radon gas then a further barrier is essential to prevent the gas from entering from the ground. A simple air-tight membrane may be suitable in locations with relatively low radon emissions, but in more serious situations there might have to be a more complex ventilation and extraction system to take away any harmful radon.

Once these stages have been completed the screeders will apply a sealer or primer to the prepared floor base. A primer assists in the screed bonding correctly to the base and membranes and different varieties exist based on which type of screed is being used. Equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by professional screeding contractors in Wootton Bassett following the manufacturer's guidelines.

If you are installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be set out 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 spread evenly across the floor in a properly installed underfloor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's an excellent choice for the majority of Wootton Bassett home renovation projects.

If you're not putting in underfloor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the type of screeding used. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least a twenty four hour delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 72 hours minimum before you are able to lay any flooring materials. If you're laying standard or heavy duty screeds the drying time is longer and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed so as to get the best possible finish for your floor.

The SR standard of your screed can be ascertained once it's set sufficiently to be walked on. Using a two metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any dips, ridges and deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest standard and allows only three millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the entire screeded floor.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is comparatively immaterial SR3 is the classification and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

There might also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to perform a soundness test. This assessment will establish the strength of the screed and its suitability for the proposed use. The screeding could be given a "drop hammer test" to measure strength and flexibility in specific areas. Any screed floor that's got point load requirements must be sanctioned by a trained structural engineer respecting the British Standards BS8204 regulations.
