Floor Screeding Bebington Merseyside (CH62): If you have a damaged or uneven floor, are looking to install under floor heating or are renovating a property or cellar in your Bebington home, then it's time to consider hiring a professional floor screeding company. A screed is used to generate a smooth floor over a rough concrete sub-base and provide a firm base for you final flooring material. Floor screeding will provide a durable, quality surface for almost any room.
FLOOR SCREEDING EXPERTS BEBINGTON
A reliable screeding specialist in Bebington will have knowledge and experience to help you achieve a perfectly finished floor in whichever size or shape of room you're renovating. After evaluating your project they will give you advice about the perfect choice of screed and which technique for applying it is most appropriate for your situation.
Your screeding contractor will also notify you if a structural engineer is required for your undertaking, in order to evaluate any flex strength, load bearing and point loadings that your flooring might require to conform with building regulations and British Standards.
The training and skills that a qualified screeding contractor brings to your project should guarantee a high quality outcome and help in extending the lifetime of your floors. Picking the right screeding materials and the best installation technique is critical if you want a durable and quality finish for your floor surface.
Make certain that you get more than one quote for your Bebington based floor screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each quotation is for. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to keep your eye on when receiving a quote from your Bebington screeding contractor. Each of the three SR levels deliver different levels of finish, with SR1 offering the best, with the smallest amount of deviation over the surface area. Any imperfections in the screeding (as might arise with SR2 or SR3) may cause problems in laying flooring due to ridges, indentations, flat spots in the floor surface.
British Standards BS8204 lays out the regulations and guidelines that all Bebington screeding contractors is obliged to follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc), they should be accredited by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. This accreditation scheme illustrates a company's training and high quality performance in the application of a manufacturer's product.
Commercial screeders in Bebington will generally tackle larger screeding projects in warehouses, hospitals, restaurants, factories, schools and shops.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - This is acceptable for standard domestic use and comprises a mix of sand and cement. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the normal mixture for standard screed. The standard flooring screed will dry at a rate of one millimetre thickness each day.
Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement formula. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all flooring materials to be laid. Even with a depth of just 1mm, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is required, heavy duty screeds offer maximum strength and durability.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option for professional installers where under floor heating is being installed in residential homes in Bebington. The increased strength and flex offered by the special fibres within the screed mix help protect the resulting floor from thermal cracking and shrinkage. It's got a drying rate of 1mm per day.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries quickly and allows you to use the floor area much sooner. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, subject to the mix, they're normally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are perfect for projects that have tight deadlines.
Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a minimal thickness. Because of their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying curing times which can be verified by viewing manufacturer's product guidelines.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
To ensure that the screeding is of a high quality finish that's hard wearing and durable, time should be devoted to preparing the area prior to any screeding material being poured. Any paint, debris, grease and oil on the existing floor level can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eliminated.
If cleansing products have been used it's vital to remove any residues of detergent or soap, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the final surface. An on-site survey will allow the screeding specialist to take note of these preparation areas and complete them before beginning to lay the screeding.
To protect the flooring materials and screed layer from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed. There might be 2 or 3 layers of varying thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.
If your property is situated in an area where radon is found an extra barrier layer is needed to stop radon gas from seeping through. This can be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in more serious cases a ventilation and extraction system will be installed under the floor screed to draw out any influx of radon gas from ground level.
The final stage of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealer. A primer helps with the screed to successfully bond to the base and different types exist depending on which screed type is being used. Because of their specialist nature, only trained screeding contractors in Bebington are capable of using them safely and correctly and using bespoke equipment for this task.
If required, this is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. Insulation panels will be positioned and the cabling and heating pipes will be securely attached so that there is no movement whilst the screed is poured. Warmth is evenly spread across a floor area in a properly fitted under floor heating system, and along with it being an effective choice of heating, it is a great choice for many Bebington home restoration projects.
If you are not fitting underfloor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and laid. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the kind of screeding that is used. After application of the screed there will be a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a 72 hours minimum curing time for the laying of any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds should be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide an even and stable floor surface.
The SR level of your screed can be checked once it's hardened enough to be walked on. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the screed surface.
- SR1 - SR1 is the highest quality and allows only three millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
- SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the whole screed.
- SR3 - If the deviation is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is classed as SR3 and is suitable for garage and utility areas.
If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is needed to carry out the testing. The assessment will ensure your new screed is suitable for the load point requirements specified in the site survey. This will include what is known as a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. The specialist testing and measurement tools required mean that this can only be undertaken by a qualified structural engineer applying the BS8204 guidelines.
