Floor Screeding Rawmarsh South Yorkshire (S62): A professional floor screeder can level an uneven or damaged floor, help with renovations or help to install underfloor heating on your Rawmarsh home, when necessary. A screed is used to produce a smooth floor surface over a rough concrete sub-base and provide a level foundation for your choice of top flooring material. Floor screeding will provide a high quality and durable floor surface for virtually any room.
FLOOR SCREEDING COMPANIES RAWMARSH
A professional screeding company in Rawmarsh will have all the experience and knowledge to help you achieve a perfectly finished floor in whichever shape or size of room you are renovating. They will assess your project and ascertain the appropriate sort of screed you require and how best to apply it.
A professional screeding company will also inform you if a structural engineer is necessary for your undertaking, in order to check on load requirements, point loadings and flex strength that your flooring may need to conform with building regulations and British Standards.
Skilled and qualified workers are essential to a successful outcome and will extend your floor's lifespan by using the correct kind of screed for your room's allocated purpose. There are numerous kinds of floor screeding and picking the appropriate mix and laying method is crucial if you are to achieve a high quality floor that is both long-lasting and fit for purpose.
Make sure that you get 2 or 3 quotes for your Rawmarsh screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each quotation is for. For residential properties a quote will usually be provided for a Surface Regularity (SR) calculation of SR1 or SR2. SR2 and SR3 might be less expensive options, however the finished floor surface might have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect finish. This means that you might have to fix any patches that could cause problems when laying your final flooring material.
British Standards BS8204 lays out the regulations and guidelines that all Rawmarsh screeding companies are required to follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete etc), they must be approved by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. The testing and training of a floor screeding contractor by such manufacturers is emphasised through this accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any screeding project which involves their materials.
Commercial screeders in Rawmarsh will probably undertake larger floor screeding projects in hospitals, warehouses, schools, restaurants, shopping centres and factories.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - A combination of sand and cement which is good for basic residential usage. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. This 5:1 ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of one millimetre per day after applying.
Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is necessary on account of building requirements, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength solution to this situation. Because of their different chemical compositions, polymer screeds have varying setting times which can be verified by reading manufacturer's product guidelines.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional installers for use with under floor heating systems. This is due to the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the fibres within the screed. At approximately one millimetre per day, it has an identical curing rate to standard screed.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry rapidly and allow you to use the screeded area much sooner. These are normally a fibre reinforced screed which can dry out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are used in time critical projects.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A cement and latex material which can achieve the highest standard SR1 finish. This is mainly used to produce a high quality floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a surface onto which all sorts of flooring materials can be laid. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are high or heavy loading of the floor is necessary, heavy duty screeds allow for maximum durability and strength.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Good preparation is crucial for a top quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. Any paint, debris, oil and grease on the original floor surface can affect the bonding of the screed, and should be removed.
Any cleaning products used during this process should leave no residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. At this stage any cracks need to be repaired because these can easily travel up through the newly laid screed and be visible in the finished surface. During a site survey your Rawmarsh screeding installer will be able to see what preparation work is required before any actual screeding work begins.
To shield the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be laid. The damp proof membrane is made out of thick polythene sheet and different layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.
If the area is at risk from radon gas then an additional barrier is needed to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. If radon occurs in large amounts then a full ventilation and extraction system may be installed under the layer of screed which will remove any gases that are seeping in from the ground.
The final step of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a sealant or primer. These primers and sealers will ensure the screed bonds properly to the base and help to achieve a high quality finished floor. Because of their specialist nature, only certified screeding specialists in Rawmarsh should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and through the use of bespoke equipment for this task.
Before the screeding can be laid, any under floor heating will now set out and installed. Insulation panels will be put in position and the heating pipes and cabling will be securely mounted so there's no movement whilst the screed is poured. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system should provide even warmth all over the floor.
Naturally, if you aren't installing underfloor heating, you can just bypass this stage and get on with applying the screeding. Your screeding company will have given you advice on which screed type is suitable for your needs, according to your proposed use of the room area. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least twenty four hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before you are able to lay any flooring materials. This timescale is increased for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's guidelines must be followed to create the best finish and durability of the floor.
As soon as the screed has solidified it can be quality checked to verify the SR level. The basic SR test uses a 2 metre straight edge to check for any fluctuations in the screeded surface.
- SR1 - Over the whole screed area, if there are no deviations of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
- SR2 - SR2 is for standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
- SR3 - For utility floors where the finish is comparatively unimportant the SR3 is the specification and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.
There may also be a requirement for a structural engineer to perform a soundness test. The testing will ensure your newly laid screed surface is viable for the load bearing requirements set down in the site survey. A "drop hammer test" will be carried out on various areas of the screed and the results documented. Any screed floor that's got point load requirements must be approved by a trained structural engineer heeding the BS8204 guidelines.
