Floor Screeding Conisbrough South Yorkshire (DN12): When you are restoring your Conisbrough home with damaged or uneven floors, or maybe converting a cellar or basement to useful living area, a competent floor screeding company should be your first port of call. A screed is used to generate a smooth floor surface over a rough concrete sub-base and give a good foundation for you final flooring material. The screed is a vital procedure to ensure a high quality and durable finish to the whole floor structure.
FLOOR SCREEDING COMPANIES CONISBROUGH
Whatever size or shape of room or area you're remodeling, a decent screeding contractor in Conisbrough can supply the experience and correct working practices to establish the perfect base for your floors. They'll be able to assess the project and determine the correct type of screed you need and how best to apply it.
They'll in addition assess if a structural engineer is necessary to make certain that any point loadings, flex strength and load bearing are satisfied as set out in the building regulations.
Working with a qualified and skilled flooring specialist will guarantee that you get the right sort of screed for the room's proposed purpose to extend the lifetime of your floor. Picking the correct screeding materials and the method of installation is critical if you want a quality and durable finish for your floor.
Before picking out a screeding specialist from those operating in the Conisbrough area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their price quote, and also make sure you get two or three estimates. The quote may be based on what's called the Surface Regularity, or SR number. Each of the three SR levels deliver different qualities of finish, with SR1 offering the highest, with the least amount of deviation over the area. An SR2 or SR3 standard may mean there will be ridges or flat spots that may cause issues when installing your final flooring materials.
The regulations and guidelines set out in in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by all Conisbrough floor screeding companies and they must also be accredited by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc.) to demonstrate their competence and safe working practices. The training and assessment of a floor screeding company by a manufacturer is underlined through the accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any project involving their materials.
Commercial screeders in Conisbrough will probably tackle larger screeding projects in shops, hospitals, warehouses, salons, schools and factories.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - Frequently used in residential projects where the mix of sand and cement is ideal for basic floor traffic use. This mix uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. This 5 to 1 ratio standard flooring screed will dry out at a rate of just 1mm per day after laying.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries at a quicker rate and allows you to use the screeded area much sooner. The vast majority of the fast drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are ideal for a wide variety of projects where the quicker curing rate of 3-7mm is a big advantage.
Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a minimal thickness. Polymer screeds are made by a number of screed manufacturers and because of their different chemical compositions have specific drying times for each individual product.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with under floor heating systems and is the recommended option in such projects. The special fibres in this screed increase it's durability and strength while also protecting against thermal cracking and shrinkage. It dries out at an identical rate to a standard screed, at about one millimetre per day.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement solution which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all types of flooring materials to be laid. These can be as little as 1mm thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is necessary, heavy duty screeds provide maximum strength and durability.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
To guarantee the screeding is of a high quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time must be spent on fully preparing the area prior to any screeding material being laid. The existing floor surface should be cleaned to remove any paint, debris, grease and oil that might adversely affect the bond of the screeding.
Any cleaning chemicals which are used in this phase should leave no residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry out naturally. It's vital to mend any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to prevent them being visible and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. A skilled Conisbrough screeding contractor will take note of such issues during the on-site survey and make certain all preparations are completed before moving on to the next steps in the screeding process.
To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be laid. The DPM is made of thick polythene sheet and various layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.
If your house is located in a place where radon is found an additional barrier layer is necessary to stop radon gas from getting through. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a full extraction and ventilation system may be installed under the screed which will remove any gases that might seep in from the ground.
Once these stages have been completed the screeders will put on a primer or sealer to the prepared base surface. These sealers and primers will make sure the screed bonds properly to the floor base and help produce a good quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays can be used to apply a primer or sealant, by certified screeding installers in Conisbrough following the manufacturer's guidelines.
Before the screeding can be laid, any under floor heating will now set out and installed. The heating pipes and wires are firmly attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure they're positioned correctly. Warmth is evenly spread across the floor in an expertly installed underfloor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient choice of heating, it is a good choice for the majority of Conisbrough renovation projects.
Of course, if you aren't putting in underfloor heating, you can just skip this step and get on with applying the screeding. Your screeding contractor will give you advice on which form of screed is suitable for your needs, according to your proposed use of the room. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least a 24 hour delay before it can be walked on, and a further 72 hours minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. 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 standard of your screed can be checked once it has hardened enough to be stepped onto. The test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge laid down upon the floor surface and any variations from true are measured.
- SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less as measured over the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the finest quality and is categorised as SR1.
- SR2 - SR2 is for standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5 millimetres.
- SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish isn't needed. This specification allows for a maximium deviation depth of ten millimetres.
It may also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to do a soundness test. This assessment will determine the strength of the screed and its suitability for the proposed use. This will include a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. The precise testing and measurement tools involved mean that this can only be undertaken by a competent structural engineer observing the BS8204 guidelines.
