TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - A combination of sand and cement which is good for normal residential usage. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. The standard flooring screed will dry at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A cement and latex formula which can achieve the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. Largely used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, like tiles over it. This liquid screed can be poured to a depth of only 1mm, but will still provide a high strength base for a wide variety of flooring materials.
Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is needed because of building requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to this situation. Polymer screeds are available from many screed manufacturers and due to their varying chemical compositions have specific drying times for each individual product.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with underfloor heating and is the suggested option in such projects. The special fibres in the screed mix improve overall durability and strength whilst also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. At around one millimetre per day, it has the same drying rate to standard screed.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where maximum strength and durability is essential.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries quickly and allows you to use the floor area much faster. They're normally a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are used in time critical flooring projects.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Good preparation is vital for a top quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. It is crucial that any contaminants such as paint, grease, debris or oil is eradicated from the floor surface before pouring any screed, as these can affect the bonding capability that a quality screed needs.
If any products were used during this stage it is crucial to make sure that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the floor surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. It's vital to mend any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to prevent them being mirrored and "travelling" up into your newly screeded floor. A site survey will enable your Swinton screeding company to pinpoint this preparation work and complete it before commencing to lay the screeding.
To shield the flooring materials and screed layer from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be laid. There might be two or three layers of different thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.
If your property is situated in a place where radon is present an additional barrier layer is needed to prevent radon gas from seeping through. If radon occurs in large amounts then a complete extraction and ventilation system might be needed underneath the layer of screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from ground level.
Once these steps have been taken the screeding company will apply a primer or sealer to the prepared base. A primer assists in the screed to successfully bond to the base and membranes and different types exist according to which kind of screed is being used. Equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, by certified screeding installers in Swinton observing the manufacturer's guidelines.
Before any screed can be poured, any under floor heating (if required) will now be laid out. The heating pipes and cabling are securely attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure they're held in the correct position. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system should provide even warmth across the floor area.
If you are not putting in underfloor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and laid. Your screeding specialist will have given you advice on which sort of screed is appropriate for your needs, according to your intended use of the room area. After application of the screed there is a minimum 24 hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk over the surface, and a 72 hour minimum setting period before the laying of any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds should be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with an even and stable floor surface.
You can check the SR standard of the finished screeding once it's hardened enough for walking on. The test involves using a 2m straight edge laid down upon the floor surface and any deviations from true are measured.
- SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less being measured over the whole floor area shows your screed to be of the best quality and specified as SR1.
- SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5 millimetres.
- SR3 - For a utility area or room where the finish is comparatively unimportant SR3 is the specification and has a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.
There may also be a requirement for a structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. Using specialist equipment the engineer will evaluate the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. The screeding should be given what's known as a "drop hammer test" to measure flexibility and strength in various areas. Only certified structural engineers respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to carry out these tests and sign off on the structural integrity of the screeding.
