TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - Widely used in domestic flooring projects where the mixture of sand and cement is ideal for normal footfall usage. The standard screed is a mix of 5 parts sand to one cement. After laying a standard screed mixture sets at a rate of 1mm/day.
Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to press ahead urgently with the work due to time constraints, these screeds dry much quicker than standard flooring screeds. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, determined by the specialised mix, they are generally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are great for flooring projects which have tight schedules.
Polymer Screeds - These provide an extremely high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Manufacturer's guidelines for setting times differ across the product ranges.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are high or heavy loading of the floor is required, heavy duty screeds deliver maximum strength and durability.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with underfloor heating systems and is the recommended choice in such projects. The improved strength and flexibility provided by the fibres in this screed mix help protect the flooring from thermal shrinkage and cracking. It sets at an identical rate to a standard screed, at about one millimetre per day.
Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is necessary this formula of cement and latex is used to achieve SR1 quality floor screeding. This is mostly needed to provide a clean, smooth floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a surface finish onto which all sorts of flooring materials can be laid. This liquid screed can be laid to a depth of only 1mm, but will still provide a strong surface for a selection of flooring finishes.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish which is durable and hard wearing, time must be devoted to carefully preparing the area before any screed is poured. It's crucial that all contaminants such as loose debris, grease, oil or paint is eliminated from the floor before pouring any screed, since these can affect the bonding capability that a good quality screed needs.
Any cleansing products which are used in this stage should leave no residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. At this point any cracks should be repaired as these can travel up through a laid screed and be reflected in the completed surface. An on-site survey will enable your Weston-super-Mare screeding installer to identify this preparation work and tackle it before beginning to lay the screeding.
A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be applied once the preparation work has been finished to stop ground moisture getting into the screeding and floor materials. There could be two or three layers of different thickness polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.
Another air-tight barrier could be required if your house is in a location that is regarded as susceptible to radon gas. An air-tight membrane could be enough in places with low emissions of radon, but in more extreme cases there may have to be a more sophisticated extraction system to remove any harmful radon gas.
Once the floor base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a sealant or primer is then put on. A primer helps with the screed bonding correctly to the base surface and different types exist based upon which screed type is being applied. These materials need skilled contractors to apply them in the right ratios by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.
If you are installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be laid out and installed. The cabling and heating pipes are firmly mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement and make sure that they're laid in the correct position. When professionally installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm a room and top quality screed retains its heat, creating an even level of warmth right across the floor surface.
The screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and applied to the floor surface. Your intended use of the room will help your screeding company on what sort of floor screed is appropriate for your needs. For quick drying screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. If you're hoping to end up with a well finished and long-lasting floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to standard and heavy duty screeds where the time period will be increased.
Once the screeding has solidified it can be checked for quality to ascertain its SR level. Through the use of a 2 metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any ridges, deviations and dips in the surface of the screed.
- SR1 - Over the whole area, if there aren't any disparities of more than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 level surface.
- SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the entire screeded floor.
- SR3 - If the deviation around the room is ten millimetres or less the screeding quality is categorised as SR3 and is fine for utility and garage areas.
If your screeding has been laid with particular loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be needed to perform the assessment. The testing will make certain that your newly laid screed is suitable for the load bearing requirements set down in the original site survey. An assessment called the drop hammer test is conducted at various areas on the screed and the results noted. The precise measurement and testing tools required mean that this can only be performed by a qualified structural engineer following the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.
