Floor Screeding Burton-upon-Trent Staffordshire (DE13): If you have an uneven or damaged floor, are aiming to install underfloor heating or are renovating a property or cellar in your Burton-upon-Trent property, then it is time to think about hiring a professional floor screeder. Floor screeding provides a smooth finish to a rough sub-base, and will allow you to lay your final layer of flooring material, (tiles, carpets, boards etc) on top of it. Floor screeding can provide a high quality and durable surface for virtually any room.
FLOOR SCREEDING CONTRACTORS BURTON-UPON-TRENT
Whatever shape or size of room you are remodeling, a decent floor screeding contractor in Burton-upon-Trent can supply the experience and proper working practices to establish a perfect base for your floors. They will assess your project and verify the correct type of screed you need and the best technique for applying it.
It may be a requirement, based on the intended use of the area, for a structural engineering survey to conform with building regulations on point loadings, load requirements and flex strength of the screed floor.
The skills and training that a certified screeding specialist brings to your project should guarantee a high quality outcome and help to extend the lifespan of your flooring. There are many types of screed and choosing the correct mix and installation approach is essential if you are to create a top quality floor which is long-lasting and fit for purpose.
There are a number of screeding specialists in and around Burton-upon-Trent so if possible get multiple quotes for your project before choosing a contractor and know to what standard of finish it's for. The quote may be based on what's called the Surface Regularity, or SR figure. SR2 and SR3 may be more affordable options, however the finished floor surface might have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect quality of finish. Any errors in the screeding may cause problems in laying flooring due to ridges, indentations, flat spots in the surface.
The guidelines and regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by all Burton-upon-Trent floor screeding contractors and they must also be approved by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc.) to substantiate their safe working practices and competence. A company holding such accreditation proves that they've been trained and assessed in using these products and can deliver a high standard of service in all aspects of their installation.
Burton-upon-Trent commercial screeders could be involved in screeding floors in factories, warehouses, pubs, shopping centres, schools and hospitals.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - Used in residential flooring projects where the blend of sand and cement is acceptable for regular footfall use. This mix uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. The standard flooring screed dries at a rate of one millimetre thickness per day.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to use the area as soon as possible a fast drying screed may be used. The vast majority of the fast drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are appropriate for a whole host of flooring projects where the faster curing rate of 3-7mm is a welcome advantage.
Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is necessary this mixture of cement and latex is used to produce SR1 level screed flooring. This self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all flooring materials to be laid. These can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional installers for use in combination with under floor heating systems. The increased flex and strength provided by the special fibres in the screed help protect the flooring from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. It has a drying rate of 1mm per day.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where the maximum possible strength and durability is necessary.
Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is necessary on account of construction requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to the problem. Polymer screeds are made by a number of manufacturers and owing to their varying chemical compositions have specific curing times for each product.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time must be devoted to preparing the area before any screeding material is laid. The original floor surface should be cleaned to eradicate any grease, oil, debris and paint which can adversely affect the adhesion of the screeding.
If cleaning products were used it's crucial to remove any residues of soap, detergent etc, and leave the surface to dry naturally. At this stage any cracks should be repaired since these can easily travel up through a laid screed and be reflected in the completed floor surface. During a site survey your Burton-upon-Trent screeding contractor will be able to see what preparations are required before starting to work on the screeding.
A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be installed once the preparation work has been done to prevent ground dampness getting into the screed and floor materials. There might be 2 or 3 layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.
Another airtight barrier could be required if your building is in an area that's known to be prone to radon gas emissions. This could be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in more serious cases a ventilation and extraction system will need to be installed underneath the screed to take away any influx of radon gas from ground level.
Once the floor base has been properly prepared and all membranes installed, a sealer or primer is then put on. A primer helps with the screed bonding correctly to the base and different varieties exist according to which screed type is being used. On account of their specialist nature, only certified screeding specialists in Burton-upon-Trent are capable of using them safely and correctly and using equipment that's made for the task.
Under floor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before screeding is poured. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and mounted firmly on insulation panels to stop any movement in the course of the screed pouring process. Warmth will be evenly spread across a floor area in an expertly installed underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's a great choice for most Burton-upon-Trent renovation projects.
The screed can now be prepared on site and poured onto the base surface. The requirements of the room will dictate the kind of screeding that's used. Don't forget that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk on any laid surfaces and a minimum seventy two hours before any floor coverings can be laid. If you are laying standard or heavy duty screeds the curing time is longer and the manufacturer's guidelines must be adhered to so as to get the best possible finish for your floor.
You can assess the SR standard of the completed screed as soon as it is hard enough to walk on. The standard SR test involves the use of a 2 metre straight edge to check for any fluctuations in the floor surface.
- SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less as measured over the entire floor area shows your screed to be of the finest quality and categorised as SR1.
- SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the entire floor.
- SR3 - For other floors where the finish is comparatively inconsequential the SR3 is the standard and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.
It may also be necessary for a structural engineer to perform a soundness test. The testing will ensure your new screed is suitable for the load point requirements specified in the site survey. The screed layer should be subjected to what is known as a "drop hammer test" to assess flexibility and strength in distinct areas. Any screed flooring that's got load bearing requirements must be approved by a fully qualified structural engineer following the BS8204 guidelines.
