TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - Frequently used in residential flooring projects where the combination of cement and sand is ideal for everyday footfall use. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. This five to one ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of just one millimetre per day after laying.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional installers for use in combination with underfloor heating systems. The increased flex and strength offered by the fibres within the screed mix help protect the floor from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. At roughly one millimetre per day, it has an identical setting rate to standard floor screed.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry at a quicker rate and allow you to use the screeded area much faster. These are usually a fibre reinforced kind of screed which can dry at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are used in time-sensitive flooring projects.
Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a reduced thickness. The curing times for these vary as outlined by proprietary product guidelines.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are expected to be high or heavy loading of the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds deliver maximum strength and durability.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex compound. Mostly used to finalise a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like tiles on the top of it. These can be as little as 1mm thick, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Screeding installers will need to prepare the area before proceeding with any other work in order to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The original floor surfaces should be cleaned to remove any oil, paint, debris and grease that might affect the adhesion of the screeding.
If any cleaning products are used in this process it is crucial to make sure that no residues of soaps or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor then all cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" through a screed layer and resulting in deviations on the finished floor surface. An on-site survey will allow the screeding company to highlight this preparation work and finish it before commencing to pour the screeding layer.
To shield the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be laid. Different gauges of special polythene could be used as a DPM and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.
If your home is situated in a place where radon is found a supplementary barrier layer is required to prevent radon gas from entering. If radon is present in large amounts then a complete extraction and ventilation system may be installed under the screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from the ground.
The final phase of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a sealer or primer. Sealers and primers help with the bonding process and are special applications specifically designed for the sort of screed that is being used. These materials require skilled tradesmen to apply them in the correct ratios by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.
Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before screeding is poured. Insulation panels will be laid out and the cabling and heating pipes will be firmly attached so that there is no movement whilst the screed is applied. Warmth will be evenly spread across the floor in a professionally fitted underfloor heating system, and along with it being an efficient method of heating, it's an ideal choice for many Heckmondwike home renovation projects.
If you aren't installing underfloor heating the screed can now be prepared in situ and laid. Your screeding company will have given you guidance and advice on which form of screed is appropriate for your needs, in line with your proposed use of the room area. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least twenty four hours delay before it can be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. If you are laying standard or heavy duty screeds the drying time is longer and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed in order to get the best possible finish for your floor.
The SR standard of your screed can be verified once it has set sufficiently to be stepped onto. The test involves using a 2m long straight-edge laid down upon the surface and any deviations from true are calculated.
- SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there are no disparities greater than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
- SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
- SR3 - For utility floors where the finish is fairly unimportant the SR3 is the specification and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.
If your screed has been laid with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be necessary to perform tests. This assessment will establish the strength of the screed surface and the viability for its intended use. The screed layer should be subjected to what's known as a "drop hammer test" to measure flexibility and strength in distinct areas. Only qualified structural engineers heeding the BS8204 regulations are permitted to carry out such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of the screeding.
