Floor Screeding Wisbech Cambridgeshire (PE13): A floor screeding professional can help install under floor heating, level an uneven or damaged floor or help with renovations on your Wisbech property, when needed. Floor screeding provides a smooth, level finish to a basic sub-base floor, and allows you to lay your final layer of flooring material, (tiles, carpets, boards etc) over the top of it. If you would like your floors to last a long time then a floor screed is the most important factor in any building or renovation task.
FLOOR SCREEDING COMPANIES WISBECH
A dependable screeding contractor in Wisbech will have know-how and experience to help you achieve a perfect floor in whichever size or shape of room you're renovating. They'll be ready to advise you on the correct kind of screed that your project requires, and the best methods for applying and installing it.
It might be a requirement, according to the intended use of the space, for a structural engineering survey to abide by building regulations on load bearing, flex strength and point loadings of the screed floor.
Qualified and skilled trades-people are imperative for a successful outcome and will extend the lifespan of your floor by making use of the correct sort of screed for your room's allocated purpose. A correct mix of screed and the techniques used for laying it are also critical to guarantee the final quality of your floor.
Before deciding on a screeding specialist from any operating in the Wisbech area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quotation, and also make sure you get two or three quotes. For domestic homes a quotation will normally be provided for a Surface Regularity (SR) calculation of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the highest level, and while SR2 and SR3 may seem less expensive at first glance, they do not guarantee a totally flat or even surface. Any imperfections in the screeding (as might occur with SR2 or SR3) may cause problems in laying flooring owing to indentations, flat spots, ridges in the surface.
Every Wisbech screeding company has to stick to British Standards (BS8204) and should have accreditation from screeding material and equipment manufacturers, for instance Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol. A contractor holding accreditations demonstrates that they've been assessed and trained in the use of these products and can offer a top notch service in all areas of their installation.
Wisbech commercial screeders may be involved in floor screeding in boutiques, schools, hospitals, shopping centres, factories and warehouses.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - A mixture of sand and cement which is okay for everyday domestic usage. The ratios involved in standard screeds are five parts sand to one part cement. This 5 to 1 ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of just 1mm per day after applying.
Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is necessary. Owing to their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying curing times which can be verified by checking manufacturer's own product guidelines.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum durability and strength in places where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor base is needed.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry quickly and allow you to use the floor area much sooner. They're typically a fibre reinforced screed which can dry out at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are employed in time critical flooring projects.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option where underfloor heating is being installed in residential homes in Wisbech. The greater flexibility and strength offered by the fibres within the screed mix help protect the resulting floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. It dries at an identical rate to a standard screed of one millimetre per day.
Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement compound. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all sorts of flooring materials to be laid. Even with a depth of one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Good preparation is essential for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. The original floor surfaces should be cleaned to eradicate any paint, grease, debris and oil which can affect the bond of the screeding.
Any cleansing products used during this stage should leave no residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry out naturally. At this stage cracks should be mended since these can travel up through your laid screed and be reflected in the completed floor surface. A skilled Wisbech screeding specialist will address these problems during the on-site survey and make certain that all preparations are completed before applying the next steps in the screeding process.
A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed once the preparation work has been finished to stop ground dampness getting into the flooring materials and screeding. The DPM is made out of thick polythene sheet and various layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.
If your home is situated in an area where radon gas is present an extra barrier layer is essential to prevent radon gas from entering. If radon gas occurs in severe doses then a full extraction and ventilation system may be installed beneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that might seep in from the ground.
As soon as the floor base has been properly prepared and all DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then applied. These sealers and primers will make sure the screed bonds perfectly to the base surface and help to produce a good quality finished floor. Because of their specialist nature, only trained screeding specialists in Wisbech are capable of using them safely and correctly and through the use of bespoke equipment for the task.
If you are installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be correctly set out and installed. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and firmly secured to insulation panels to avoid any movement during screed application. When expertly installed an underfloor heating system is an excellent way to warm up a room and decent quality screeding will retain its heat, generating an even level of warmth across the floor surface.
If you're not fitting under floor heating the screed can now be prepared in situ and laid. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the form of screeding that's used. After the pouring of the screed there is a minimum twenty four hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you're able to walk over the surface, and a 72 hours minimum curing time before any floor covering installations. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for heavy duty and standard screeds must be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and even surface.
The SR standard of your screed can be confirmed once it's hardened enough to be walked on. The test involves the use of a 2 mtr long straight-edge laid on the floor surface and any variations from true are measured.
- SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any disparities greater than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
- SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
- SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10mm or less the quality of the screeding is classed as SR3 and is highly suitable for utility and garage areas.
If your screeding has been installed with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be needed to carry out the assessment. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will ascertain the screed surface strength and viability of use in a load bearing setting. This should include a drop hammer test which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Only certified structural engineers applying the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to conduct these tests and sign off on the structural integrity of screed flooring.
