Floor Screeding Golborne Greater Manchester (WA3): If you are restoring a property or cellar, have an uneven or damaged floor or are planning to install under floor heating in your Golborne property, then it's the perfect time to consider bringing in a professional floor screeder. Before you're able to lay a final floor covering, whether it is tile, wood or carpet, the floor surface should be as flat as is possible; this is why floor screeding is often needed. Floor screeding can provide a durable, quality finish for virtually any room.
FLOOR SCREEDING EXPERTS GOLBORNE
It doesn't matter how big or small the area you need levelling, a decent floor screeding company in Golborne will have the necessary equipment, skills and know-how to provide you with an excellent standard of service. They'll be ready to advise you on the right sort of screed that your project requires, and the best methods for applying and installing it.
It may be necessary, contingent on the intended use of the area in question, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform to building regulations on point loadings, load bearing and flex strength of the screed floor.
Working with a qualified and skilled flooring specialist will guarantee that you get the appropriate type of screed for the room's allocated purpose and get the maximum lifespan out of the resulting flooring. There are many different types of screeding and choosing the appropriate mix and laying approach is essential if you are to create a quality floor that is durable and fit for purpose.
Make certain that you get at least 2 or 3 estimates for your Golborne based screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each quote is for. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the figure to keep your eye on when reviewing an estimate from Golborne screeding companies. SR1 is the highest level, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may be less expensive at first glance, they do not guarantee a totally even or flat floor surface. This means you may need to fix any patches that may cause issues when putting down your final flooring solution.
British Standards BS8204 sets down the regulations and guidelines that all Golborne screeding installers is obliged to follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc), they must be certified by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. A contractor holding accreditations shows they've been assessed and trained in using these products and can offer a top notch service in all areas of their installation.
For larger floor screeding projects in schools, pubs, shopping centres, warehouses, hospitals and factories, specialist Golborne commercial screeders will be required.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - Frequently used in residential projects where the mix of cement and sand is acceptable for basic footfall use. This mixture comprises a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are expected to be high or heavy loading of the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds offer maximum durability and strength.
Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is necessary. Owing to their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying setting times which you can verify by viewing manufacturer's product guidelines.
Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to progress urgently with the flooring due to time limitations, these screeds dry much faster than standard flooring screeds. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are appropriate for a wide array of projects where the swifter curing rate of three to seven millimetres is a welcome advantage.
Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement material which can achieve the highest standard SR1 finish. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all flooring materials to be laid. These can be as little as 1mm thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The first choice where under floor heating is being installed in residential homes in Golborne. The improved flex and strength provided by the fibres within the screed help protect the resulting floor from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Preparation is essential for a high quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. Any paint, oil, grease and debris on the existing floor level can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and should be eradicated.
If cleaning products were used it's important to remove any remnants of detergent or soap, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the final surface. A skilled Golborne screeding company will take note of these issues during the site survey and ensure that all preparations are finished before applying the next stages of the floor screeding process.
Before the screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be put down to shield the screed and final flooring from dampness. Different thicknesses of special polythene may be used as a damp proof membrane and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.
If the area where you live is susceptible to radon then an additional barrier is necessary to stop the gas from entering from the ground. An airtight membrane may be sufficient in areas with low emissions of radon, but in more extreme cases there might have to be a more complex extraction system to block any ground penetrating radon gases.
The final stage of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealer. A primer assists in the screed bonding process to the base and membranes and different varieties exist based upon which screed type is being used. Owing to their special nature, only certified screeding contractors in Golborne are capable of using them safely and correctly and through the use of equipment which is made for this task.
Before the screeding can be laid, any under floor heating (if required) will now set out and installed. The heating pipes and cabling are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure that they are held in the correct position. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should give an even warmth across the floor area.
Of course, if you are not installing under floor heating, you simply ignore this stage and apply the screeding. Your screeding contractor will have given you advice on which screed type is appropriate for your needs, in line with your proposed use of the room. For quick drying screeds there'll be at least a 24 hour delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before you are able to install any flooring materials. Such time periods will be increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's product guidelines must be followed to create the optimal finish and durability of the floor.
Once the screeding has solidified it can be quality checked to verify the SR standard. The standard SR test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge to check for any variations in the screeded surface.
- SR1 - Disparities of three millimetres or less being measured across the entire floor area shows your screed to be of the best quality and classed as SR1.
- SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to five millimetres.
- SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is relatively immaterial the SR3 is the specification and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.
If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to perform the tests. This test will ascertain the overall strength of the screed and its viability for the intended use. The screeding should be given what is known as a drop hammer test to assess strength and flexibility in specific areas. Only fully qualified structural engineers observing the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to perform these testing and sign off on the structural safety of the screeding.
