Floor Screeding Sandbach Cheshire (CW11): If you are renovating a property or cellar, are aiming to install underfloor heating or have an uneven or damaged floor in your Sandbach property, then it is time to consider hiring a floor screeding professional. Floor screeding gives a smooth, level finish to a coarse sub-base floor, and allows you to lay a suitable flooring material, (boards, tiles, carpets etc) over it. If you want your floors to last a long time then floor screeding is the most important factor in any building or renovation task.
FLOOR SCREEDING COMPANIES SANDBACH
A reliable floor screeding contractor in Sandbach will have all the know-how and experience to help you achieve a perfect floor in whatever size or shape of room you're renovating. After analyzing your project they will advise you on the perfect choice of screeding and which strategy for applying it is most suitable for your situation.
It might be a requirement, contingent on the intended use of the area in question, for a structural engineering survey to abide by building regulations on flex strength, point loadings and load bearing of the screed floor.
A skilled and qualified work force is necessary for a successful outcome and will extend the lifespan of your floor through the use of the correct sort of screed for the intended purpose of your room. The correct mix of screed and the way it is laid is also important to ensure the ultimate intergrity of your floor surface.
Make sure you get at least 2 or 3 estimates for your Sandbach based screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting each quote. The price quote should be based on what is known as the Surface Regularity, or SR figure. SR2 and SR3 might be more affordable options, however the floor screeding finish might have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect quality of finish. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there are flat spots or ridges that could cause issues when installing your final floor surface.
British Standards BS8204 lays out the guidelines and regulations that all Sandbach screeding contractors are required to follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete etc), they should be certified by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. The training and assessment of a screeding contractor by such manufacturers is underlined through this accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any screeding project which involves their materials.
Commercial screeders in Sandbach will generally tackle larger floor screeding projects in factories, boutiques, shops, warehouses, hospitals and schools.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - This is ideal for standard residential usage and is a blend of cement and sand. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the usual mix for standard flooring screeds. After being laid a standard flooring screed dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional installers for use in combination with under floor heating systems. The greater flexibility and strength provided by the special fibres within this screed help protect the resulting floor from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.
Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex formula which can achieve the highest standard SR1 finish. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all types of flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of just 1mm, but still provides a strong surface for a selection of flooring materials.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries at a quicker rate and allows you to use the floor area much sooner. The vast majority of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are ideal for a wide range of projects where the swifter drying rate of 3-7mm/day is a big advantage.
Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a minimal thickness. Because of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying drying times which can be verified by studying manufacturer's guidelines.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are expected to be high or heavy loading of the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds deliver maximum durability and strength.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Preparation is vital for a top quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The original floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eradicate any oil, debris, paint and grease which can adversely affect the bond of the screed.
If cleansing products were used it's essential to remove any traces of detergent or soap, and leave the surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor any cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and producing deviations on the finished surface. A site survey will allow the screeding specialist to identify this preparation work and finish it before commencing to pour the screeding.
A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed once the preparation work has been done to prevent ground moisture getting into the screeding and floor materials. The DPM is made from thick polythene sheet and various layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.
If the area is susceptible to radon then a further barrier is needed to stop the gas from entering via the ground. If radon is present in severe doses then a complete ventilation and extraction system might be needed underneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from the ground.
As soon as these stages have been completed the screeders will put on a primer or sealer to the prepared base. These primers and sealers will make certain that the screed bonds properly to the base and help to produce a high quality finished floor. Owing to their specialist nature, only qualified screeding specialists in Sandbach are capable of using them safely and correctly and through the use of equipment that's made for this task.
Under floor heating can now be installed and tested before screeding is applied. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and secured firmly to insulation panels to prevent any movement during screed installation process. When expertly installed an underfloor heating system is an excellent way to warm up a room and decent quality screeding will retain its heat, creating an even level of warmth right across the floor.
The screeding can now be prepared in situ and poured onto the floor base. The specific requirements of the room will determine the form of screeding that's used. Remember that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk over any laid surface and a minimum 72 hours before any floor coverings can be applied. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds must be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide an even and stable floor surface.
The SR standard of your screeding can be confirmed once it's set enough to be walked upon. The test involves using a two metre straight edge laid down upon the surface and any variations from true are calculated.
- SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less as measured across the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the finest quality and classified as SR1.
- SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the entire screed.
- SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish is not required. This specification allows for a maximium deviation depth of 10 millimetres.
If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is necessary to carry out the tests. Using specialist equipment the engineer will verify the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. An assessment called the drop hammer test is carried out on different areas of the screed layer and the results noted. Only experienced structural engineers heeding the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to perform such tests and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.
