Floor Screeding Swadlincote Derbyshire (DE11): A professional floor screeder can level an uneven or damaged floor, assist with renovations or help install underfloor heating on your Swadlincote home or business premises, when necessary. Floor screeding gives a smooth, level finish to a rough sub-base floor, and will allow you to lay a suitable flooring material, (carpets, tiles, boards etc) on top of it. If you want your floors to last then floor screeding is one of the most important factors in any building or renovation project.

After evaluating your project they will give you advice on the optimal choice of screed and which method of applying it is most suited to your situation.

The training and skills that a qualified screeding specialist brings to your project will guarantee a high quality outcome and help to lengthen the life of your floors. The correct blend of screed and the techniques used in laying it are also vital to guarantee the ultimate durability of your floor surface.
Ensure that you get more than one quotation for your Swadlincote floor screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each estimate is for. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the figure to look for when getting a quotation from Swadlincote screeding contractors. SR2 and SR3 could be less costly options, however the floor screeding finish may have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect finish. Any imperfections in the screeding may cause issues with laying flooring due to ridges, indentations, flat spots in the surface.
British Standards BS8204 lays down the regulations and guidelines that all Swadlincote screeding companies is obliged to follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc), they ought to be accredited by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. This accreditation program showcases a firm's performance and training in the usage of a manufacturer's screeding merchandise.
Swadlincote commercial screeders may be involved in the screeding of floors in schools, factories, restaurants, hospitals, warehouses and shops.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - A blend of cement and sand which is ideal for standard residential usage. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the typical mix for standard screed. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of one millimetre each day.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that is designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where maximum strength and durability is necessary.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The first choice where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Swadlincote. The increased strength and flex offered by the fibres in the screed help protect the flooring from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.
Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement mixture which can achieve the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be laid to a depth of only one millimetre, but still provides a high strength surface for a wide range of flooring materials.
Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced thickness is necessary. The drying times vary according to product guidelines.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to press ahead urgently with the flooring owing to time constraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard screeds. They are typically a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are employed in time-sensitive projects.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Preparation is crucial for a top quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. It's important that all contaminants such as paint, grease, loose debris or oil is eradicated from the base before laying any screed, since these can affect the adhesion process that a good quality floor screed demands.
If cleansing products were used it is crucial to remove any traces of detergent or soap, and leave the surface to dry naturally. It's vital to fix any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to prevent them being mirrored and "travelling" up into the freshly screeded floor. A site survey will enable the screeding company to highlight these preparation areas and finish them before beginning to pour the screeding layer.
To protect the flooring materials and screeding layer from moisture rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be laid. There may be 2 or 3 layers of different thickness polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.
If the area where you live is susceptible to radon then another barrier is required to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. An air-tight membrane may be sufficient in areas with relatively low radon emissions, but in more severe situations there might have to be a more sophisticated extraction system to take away any harmful radon gases.
The final step of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a sealant or primer. These primers and sealers will make sure the screed bonds perfectly to the floor base and help achieve a good quality finished floor. Due to their specialist nature, only trained screeding specialists in Swadlincote should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and using equipment which is made for this task.
This is the time that under floor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. Insulation panels can be laid out and the cabling and heating pipes will be securely attached so there's no movement while the screed is applied. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in a skillfully installed under floor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient method of heating, it's an excellent choice for the majority of Swadlincote home renovation projects.
The screeding can now be prepared in situ and applied to the floor surface. Your proposed use of the room will help the screeding contractor on which type of floor screed is perfect for your needs. Bear in mind 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 at least 72 hours before any flooring can be fitted. If you're aiming to end up with a nicely finished and long-lasting floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where the timescale will be increased.
The SR standard of your screeding can be checked once it's hardened sufficiently to be walked on. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 metre long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.
- SR1 - Over the entire screed area, if there are no disparities greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 specification surface.
- SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
- SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10 millimetres or less the screeding quality is categorised as SR3 and is suitable for garage and utility areas.
There might also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. The assessment will make certain that your new screed is viable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the original site survey. This can include what is known as a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only fully qualified structural engineers observing the BS8204 guidelines are permitted to carry out such tests and sign off on the structural safety of the screeding.
