Floor Screeding Fleet Hampshire (GU51): A professional floor screeding company can level an uneven or damaged floor, help to install under floor heating or help with renovations on your Fleet home, when needed. Floor screeding gives a smooth, level finish to a basic sub-base, and allows you to lay a suitable flooring material, (boards, carpets, tiles etc) on top of it. If you would like your floors to last then floor screeding is the most important factor in any building or renovation project.
FLOOR SCREEDING CONTRACTORS FLEET
A professional screeding company in Fleet will have experience and know-how to help you achieve a perfect floor in whichever size or shape of room you are working on. They'll be ready to advise you about the correct kind of screed that your project requires, and the best methods for applying and installing it.
A professional screeding contractor will also inform you if a structural engineer is required for your undertaking, to evaluate flex strength, load bearing and point loadings that your flooring may need to conform with British Standards and building regulations.
A skilled and qualified work force is essential to a successful result and will extend your floor's lifespan through the use of the correct sort of screed for your room's intended purpose. A correct mix of screed and the way it is laid is also crucial to guarantee the ultimate quality of your floor.
Make sure that you get at least 2 or 3 estimates for your Fleet based screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting each quote. The quotation could be based on what is called the Surface Regularity, or SR figure. SR1 is the best level, and whilst SR2 and SR3 might be less expensive at first glance, they don't guarantee a perfectly even or flat floor surface. This means you may have to rectify any areas that might cause problems when laying your finished flooring solution.
The rules and regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by all Fleet floor screeding contractors and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc.) to demonstrate their safe working practices and competence. The training and testing of a floor screeding contractor by a manufacturer is emphasised through this accreditation scheme, and guarantees reliability and safe working practices on any screeding project involving their materials.
Fleet commercial screeders might be involved in the screeding of floors in warehouses, shopping centres, factories, hospitals, pubs and schools.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - A mix of sand and cement which is okay for basic domestic use. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. The standard screed will dry at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.
Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is necessary. Maker's guidelines for setting times differ across the various product ranges.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use on top of under floor heating. This is due to the increased durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the special fibres within the screed mix. It's got a drying rate of 1mm per day.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that's designed for heavy traffic and high load areas where maximum durability and strength is vital.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry quickly and allow you to use the screeded area much sooner. Drying at a rate of three to seven millimetres, subject to the mixture, they are typically a fibre reinforced screed and are perfect for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement solution which can achieve the highest standard SR1 finish. It's mostly used to produce a smooth, level floor over the top of a poor quality or damaged substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. Even with a thickness of 1mm, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Screeding installers will have to prepare all areas before any other work so as to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any grease, paint, oil and debris on the existing floor level can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eradicated.
Any cleaning chemicals used in this stage should leave no residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry out naturally. At this stage cracks need to be mended since these can easily travel up through a laid screed and be visible in the completed floor surface. During an on-site survey your Fleet screeding company will be able to see what preparation work is required before starting to work on the screeding.
A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be applied once the preparation work has been finished to prevent ground moisture getting into the screed and floor materials. Different gauges of polythene sheeting could be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation materials.
If the area is susceptible to radon gas then one additional barrier is essential to stop this harmful gas from entering from the ground. An airtight membrane might be sufficient in locations with relatively low radon measurements, however in more severe cases there may have to be a more complex ventilation and extraction system to block any ground penetrating radon gas.
Once the floor base has been properly prepared and any membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then applied. A primer helps with the screed bonding process to the base and different types exist based on which screed type is being applied. These materials need trained tradesmen to apply them in the appropriate ratios by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.
If you're installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be set out and installed. The heating pipes and wires are securely attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure they are positioned correctly. Warmth will be spread evenly across a floor area in a professionally installed underfloor heating system, and coupled with it being an effective choice of heating, it is a great choice for many Fleet home restoration projects.
The screeding can now be mixed and prepared on site and applied to the base surface. Your screeding company will give you advice and guidance on which type of screed is best for your requirements, in line with your proposed use of the room. Bear in mind that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk over any screeded surface and at least seventy two hours before any flooring materials can be laid. Such timescales will be increased for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's instructions should be followed to accomplish the best finish and longevity of the floor.
The SR standard of your screeding can be verified once it's set sufficiently to be walked upon. The standard SR test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.
- SR1 - SR1 is the highest standard and allows just 3mm of disparity from the straight-edge.
- SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the whole floor surface.
- SR3 - If the deviation is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is classed as SR3 and is fine for utility and garage areas.
If your screed floor has been installed with specific loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be necessary to carry out the assessment. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will ascertain the screed surface strength and suitability of use in a load bearing environment. This will include a drop hammer test which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only qualified structural engineers obeying the British Standards BS8204 regulations are permitted to conduct such tests and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.
