Standard Screeds - A mix of sand and cement which is acceptable for basic domestic use. This mix comprises a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. After being laid a standard screed dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed due to building requirements, a polymer screed provides a high strength resolution to the problem. On account of their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying setting times which can be verified by studying manufacturer's own product guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with underfloor heating and is the recommended option in such projects.

At about 1mm per day, it has an identical setting rate to standard floor screed.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is needed this solution of cement and latex is employed to achieve SR1 quality screeding. It's mostly used to provide a clean, smooth floor over the top of a poor quality or damaged substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. These can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Screeding installers will have to carefully prepare the area prior to any other work in order to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring.

If any cleaning products were used during this stage it's vital to make certain that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. At this point any cracks should be repaired because these can travel up through your laid screed and be reflected in the completed floor surface. A decent Aldeburgh screeding company will take note of such aspects during the site survey and make certain that all preparations are finished before applying the next steps in the screeding process.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed to shield the screed and final flooring from dampness. The damp proof membrane is made from thick polythene sheeting and different layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screeding.

A further air-tight barrier could be necessary if your home is in a location that is known to be susceptible to radon gas. A simple air-tight membrane could be enough in locations with relatively low emissions of radon, but in more extreme situations there may need to be a more complex ventilation and extraction system to remove any ground penetrating radon gas.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeders will put on a sealer or primer to the prepared base. A primer assists in the screed bonding process to the base and different types exist based on which screed type is being used. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, by experienced screeding companies in Aldeburgh observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

Now is the time that underfloor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. Insulation panels will be arranged and the cabling and heating pipes will be firmly mounted so there's no movement whilst the screed is applied. When professionally installed an under floor heating system is an excellent way to warm up a room and high quality screed retains its heat, producing an even heat right across the floor.

The screeding can now be prepared in situ and applied to the floor base. Your screeding company will give you guidance and advice on which sort of screed is best for your needs, according to your proposed use of the room. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least a twenty four hour delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 3 days minimum before any flooring material can be applied. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds should be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and long lasting floor surface.

As soon as the screeding has solidified it can be quality checked to establish its SR standard. The test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge laid down upon the surface and any deviations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less being measured over the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the finest quality and is classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor deviates from the straight edge by five millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 level and is the normal standard for commercial and industrial projects.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is fairly immaterial SR3 is the classification and should have a deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

There might also be a requirement for a structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. The assessment will make certain that your new screed surface is viable for the load point requirements set down in the site survey. A "drop hammer test" is conducted at various areas on the screed layer and the outcomes noted. The precise testing and measurement tools mean that this can only be carried out by a qualified structural engineer following the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Floor Screeds Aldeburgh

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a level of flexibility is required, it may be best to use a latex self-levelling floor screed, as opposed to one with a more rigid finish. Generally coming in 2 parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cement-based smoothing compound, and a liquid latex additive. The latex liquid additive actually replaces the water which would normally be used for mixing floor screed, and is quicker drying and much more flexible than standard screeds.

This latex compound is used for levelling sub-floors prior to the installation of your chosen decorative surface. Suitable for sub-floors of wood, quarry tiles, concrete, asphalt and sand/cement, this gives the ideal surface for the application of adhesives which is also smooth and durable. If your subfloor has any movement in it, this type of floor screed will produce a flexible, crack-free finish, onto which your chosen floor coverings can be laid.

When installing a "floating" screed, for example when a screed is being laid over a layer of thermal or acoustic insulation, screed thicknesses of 50mm-75mm may be needed, and latex flooring screeds are not suited to this purpose.
