It might be a requirement, based on the intended use of the room, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform to building regulations on load bearing, flex strength and point loadings of the screed floor.

Bringing in a skilled and highly trained flooring specialist will guarantee you use the appropriate kind of screed for the room's allocated usage to extend the life of your floor. There are many kinds of screed and picking the correct mix and laying technique is critical if you are to achieve a high quality floor that is hard-wearing and fit for purpose.

There are a number of screeding specialists in the Wroughton area so if possible get multiple price quotes for your floor screeding project before choosing a company and know to what standard of finish it's for. For domestic homes a quote will normally be provided for a Surface Regularity (SR) standard of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the highest level, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may seem less costly initially, they don't guarantee a perfectly flat or even surface. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there will be ridges or flat spots that may cause issues when installing your final flooring materials.

British Standards BS8204 lays out the regulations and guidelines that all Wroughton screeding installers is obliged to follow, and if working with specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc), they should be accredited by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. The testing and training of a screeding contractor by such manufacturers is underlined through this accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any project involving their materials.

For larger screeding projects in hospitals, warehouses, shops, restaurants, schools and factories, dedicated commercial screeders in Wroughton will be required.


Standard Screeds - A mixture of cement and sand which is ideal for everyday domestic use. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the usual mix for standard screed. This 5 to 1 ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm per day after laying.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is necessary due to building requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength resolution to this problem. The curing times vary in accordance with product guidelines.

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

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to use the area in question ASAP a fast drying screed can be employed. These are usually a fibre reinforced kind of screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are used in time-sensitive projects.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement formula. Mainly used to improve a poor substrate level or damaged floor so as to lay a brand new flooring surface, like tiling on top of it. Even with a thickness of just 1mm, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured option where under floor heating is being installed in residential properties in Wroughton. The greater strength and flex offered by the fibres in the screed help protect the resulting floor from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. It's got a setting rate of 1mm per day.


Good preparation is vital for a high quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. Any paint, grease, oil and debris on the original floor level can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be eradicated.

Screeding Near Wroughton (SN4)

If cleaning products were used it's essential to remove any residues of soap etc, and allow the surface to dry naturally. At this point cracks should be mended as these can travel up through a newly laid screed and be reflected in the finished floor surface. During an on-site survey your Wroughton screeding specialist will notice what preparations are needed before any actual screeding work begins.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down after the preparation work has been completed to prevent ground dampness getting into the screed and floor materials. There might be 2 or 3 layers of varying thickness polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

If your house is located in an area where radon is present an additional barrier layer is essential to stop radon gas from getting through. If radon is present in severe doses then a complete ventilation and extraction system may be installed beneath the screed which will remove any gases that might seep in from ground level.

As soon as the floor base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then applied. Primers and sealers assist with the bonding process and are special applications matched to the kind of screed that is being used. Equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, by experienced screeding companies in Wroughton following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Under floor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before the screed is poured. Insulation panels will be positioned and the heating pipes and cabling will be securely attached to prevent any movement whilst the screed is being poured. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should deliver even level of warmth across the floor area.

If you're not putting in underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared in situ and laid. Your screeding specialist will have given you advice and guidance on which kind of screed is best for your requirements, in line with your intended use of the room area. After the pouring of the screed there is a minimum 24 hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a 72 hour minimum curing time before any floor material installation. If you are looking to wind up with a nicely finished and long-lasting floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where this timescale will be increased.

The SR level of your screeding can be ascertained once it has set sufficiently to be walked on. The test involves the use of a 2m straight edge laid down upon the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest level and allows only three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish isn't needed. This specification allows for a maximium deviation depth of ten millimetres.

If your screed floor has been installed with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be necessary to conduct tests. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will evaluate the screed surface strength and viability of use in a load bearing setting. The screeding will be subjected to a "drop hammer test" to gauge strength and flexibility in different areas. Only certified structural engineers following the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to perform these testing and sign off on the structural safety of the screeding.
