Floor Screeding Aberystwyth Wales (SY23): If you have an uneven or damaged floor, are restoring a property or cellar or are looking to install underfloor heating in your Aberystwyth home, then it is a good time to consider contacting a professional floor screeding company. Before it's possible to lay a suitable floor covering, whether it's carpet, tile or wood, the surface of the floor should be as flat as possible; this is why floor screeding is frequently needed. The screeding is an important process to ensure a durable and quality finish to the whole floor surface.
FLOOR SCREEDING CONTRACTORS ABERYSTWYTH
Whatever shape or size of room or area you are remodeling, a local floor screeding specialist in Aberystwyth will provide you with the expertise and proper working methods to establish the perfect base for your floors. After analyzing your project they will advise you about the perfect choice of screeding and which technique for applying it is most suited to your circumstances.
A professional screeding company will also let you know if a structural engineer is required for your project, to evaluate point loadings, load requirements and flex strength that your flooring might need to conform with current British Standards and building regulations.
Working with a highly trained and skilled contractor will ensure you get the proper form of screed for the room's intended purpose to extend the lifespan of your floor. Choosing the right screeding materials and the best installation technique is crucial if you want to end up with a durable and quality finish for your floor surface.
Before picking out a screeding company from the many based in the Aberystwyth area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quotation, and also make sure you get multiple price quotes. The quotation could be based on what's known as the SR, or Surface Regularity calculation. SR1 is the highest level, and whilst SR2 and SR3 might be less costly at first glance, they do not guarantee a totally flat or even floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 level may mean there will be ridges or flat spots that may cause problems when installing your final flooring surface (tile, wood, carpet etc).
British Standards BS8204 sets down the guidelines and regulations that all Aberystwyth screeding companies is obliged to follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc), they must be certified by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. A company holding such accreditation indicates they've been assessed and trained in the use of these products and can offer a top notch service in all aspects of their installation.
Aberystwyth commercial screeders will be involved in screeding floors in hospitals, schools, warehouses, shops, factories and restaurants.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential projects where the mix of cement and sand is perfect for basic floor traffic usage. The ratios involved are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. This 5 to 1 ratio standard flooring screed will dry out at a rate of one millimetre per day after laying.
Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a lower thickness. Manufacturer's guidelines for drying times are different across the product ranges.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this mixture of latex and cement is used to produce SR1 quality screeding. It's mostly needed to produce a smooth, clean floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a surface finish onto which all forms of flooring materials can be laid. These can be as little as one millimetre thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Designed for maximum strength and durability in places where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor base is needed.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with underfloor heating and is the advised choice in such projects. The fibres in the screed improve it's strength and durability while also protecting against thermal cracking and shrinkage. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry rapidly and allow you to use the screeded area much faster. The majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are suitable for a whole host of projects where the faster drying rate of 3-7mm is a considerable advantage.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Screeding installers will have to carefully prepare all areas before any other work so as to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The original floor surface should be cleaned to eradicate any grease, paint, debris and oil which might adversely affect the bond of the screed.
If cleansing products have been used it's crucial to remove any residues of soap, detergent etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and causing imperfections on the finished surface. A site survey will enable the screeding installer to take note of these preparation areas and finish them before beginning to pour the screeding.
Before the screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be put down to shield the final flooring and screed 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 your property is situated in an area where radon gas is found an extra barrier layer is needed to prevent radon gas from entering. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a full extraction and ventilation system may be installed beneath the screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from ground level.
As soon as the floor base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealant or primer is then put on. These primers and sealers will make certain that the screed bonds effectively to the base surface and help to create a good quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by experienced screeding companies in Aberystwyth observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.
Now is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. Insulation panels can be laid out and the heating pipes and wires will be firmly fastened so there's no movement whilst the screed is being applied. Warmth is spread evenly across a floor area in a professionally fitted under floor heating system, and along with it being an efficient method of heating, it's a good choice for the majority of Aberystwyth home restoration projects.
If you're not fitting under floor heating the screed can now be prepared in situ and laid. The requirements of the room will determine the kind of screeding that's used. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further seventy two hours minimum before you are able to lay any flooring materials. If you're hoping to end up with a properly finished and long-lasting floor surface you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where the timescale will be longer.
You can check the SR level of the finished screeding once it is hard enough to walk on. The test involves the use of a 2 mtr straight edge laid on the floor surface and any deviations from true are measured.
- SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less as measured across the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and specified as SR1.
- SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to five millimetres.
- SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is comparatively immaterial the SR3 is the classification and has a deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.
It may also be necessary for a structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. The testing will ensure your newly laid screed is suitable for the load bearing requirements specified in the original site survey. The screed will be given what is known as a drop hammer test to measure strength and flexibility at distinct points. Any screed flooring that's got point load requirements must be approved by a qualified structural engineer respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.
