Floor Screeding Burnham-on-Sea Somerset (TA8): A floor screeding professional can assist with renovations, level a damaged or uneven floor or help to install under floor heating on your Burnham-on-Sea home or business premises, when needed. A screed is used to produce a smooth floor on top of a rough concrete sub-base and provide a solid foundation for your choice of top flooring material. The screeding is a crucial process to ensure a durable and quality finish to the entire floor surface.
FLOOR SCREEDING CONTRACTORS BURNHAM-ON-SEA
It matters not how large or small the room is that you need levelling, an established floor screeding company in Burnham-on-Sea will have the necessary skills, equipment and know-how to provide you with a superb level of service. They will be ready to advise you on the correct type of screed that your project requires, and how best to apply and install it.
It may be a requirement, according to the intended use of the space, for a structural engineering survey to conform with building regulations on load requirements, point loadings and flex strength of the screed floor.
The skills and training that a qualified screeding technician brings to your project will guarantee a successful end result and help in prolonging the life of your floors. Choosing the right screeding materials and the method of installation is critical if you want to finish up with a durable and quality finish for your floor.
Ensure you get two or three price quotes for your Burnham-on-Sea based screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each estimate is for. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to keep your eye on when getting a quote from your Burnham-on-Sea screeding contractor. Each of the 3 SR levels offer different qualities of finish, with SR1 offering the best, with the smallest amount of deviation over the area. This means you may need to correct any areas that could cause issues when laying your finished flooring solution.
The regulations and guidelines specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by any Burnham-on-Sea floor screeding contractor and they should also be certified by the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc.) to prove their competence and safe working practices. A contractor holding such accreditation indicates they have been trained and assessed in using these products and can provide a high standard of service in all aspects of their installation.
For larger floor screeding projects in warehouses, restaurants, shopping centres, factories, schools and hospitals, skilled commercial screeders in Burnham-on-Sea will be required.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - A combination of cement and sand which is acceptable for standard residential usage. Five parts sand to one part cement is the typical mixture for standard flooring screeds. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre per day.
Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the area ASAP a fast drying screed can be employed. They are normally a fibre reinforced type of screed which can dry at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are employed in time-sensitive flooring projects.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with underfloor heating systems and is the recommended choice in such projects. The special fibres in this screed mix enhance overall durability and strength while also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. At approximately 1mm per day, it has a similar drying rate to standard floor screed.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum strength and durability in places where traffic is expected to be high or specific loading of the floor base is required.
Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is essential. Manufacturer's guidelines for curing times are different across the product ranges.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement material which can achieve the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. It's mostly used to provide a clean, smooth floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a surface onto which all forms of flooring materials can be laid. These can be as little as one millimetre thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
To make certain the screeding is of a high quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time should be devoted to preparing the area prior to any screeding material being laid. The existing floor surfaces should be cleaned to eliminate any debris, oil, grease and paint that might adversely affect the adhesion of the screed.
Any cleansing chemicals which are used in this process shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry out naturally. It's necessary to fix any cracks or crevices in the base to prevent them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into the newly screeded floor. During an on-site survey your Burnham-on-Sea screeding specialist will notice what preparations are necessary before starting to work on screeding the floor.
A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed once the preparation work has been done to stop ground dampness getting into the flooring materials and screed. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene could be used as a DPM and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.
If the area is at risk from radon gas then a further barrier is needed to prevent this harmful gas from entering from the ground. This could be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in severe situations a ventilation and extraction system will need to be installed under the screeding to take away any influx of air and gas from ground level.
The final stage of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealer. Primers and sealers help the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the kind of screed that's being used. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by qualified screeding installers in Burnham-on-Sea sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.
If required, this is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct manner. Insulation panels can be arranged and the heating pipes and cabling will be securely attached to prevent any movement whilst the screed is applied. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in a skillfully installed under floor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient method of heating, it is an ideal choice for many Burnham-on-Sea renovation projects.
The screeding can now be prepared on site and poured onto the base surface. Your intended use of the room will help the screeding contractor on which form of floor screed is best for your requirements. Bear in mind that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you're able to walk on any screeded surface and at least 3 days before any flooring materials can be laid. If you are using heavy duty or standard screeds the curing time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed so as to get the best finish to your floor.
You can evaluate the SR standard of the finished screeding as soon as it's solidified enough for walking on. Through the use of a two metre straight-edge the surface is checked for any deviations, ridges and dips in the surface of the screed.
- SR1 - SR1 is the highest standard and permits only three millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
- SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
- SR3 - If the deviation is 10 millimetres or less the screeding quality is specified as SR3 and is highly suitable for garage and utility areas.
If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is needed to carry out the testing. The testing will make sure that your new screed is viable for the load point requirements set down in the site survey. A drop hammer test will be performed at various areas on the screed and the outcomes noted. The specialist measurement and testing tools mean this can only be performed by a trained structural engineer observing the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.
