TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A mix of cement and sand which is okay for normal residential use. The ratios involved are five parts sand to one part cement. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of 1mm per day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum strength and durability in areas where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor base is required.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced thickness is required. Polymer screeds are available from a number of manufacturers and owing to their varying chemical compositions have specific setting times for each product.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is required this blend of cement and latex is used to achieve SR1 level screed flooring. Mainly used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, such as tiling on top of it. The liquid screed can be poured to a depth of only one millimetre, but will still provide a high strength base to take a wide range of flooring materials.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional installers for use in combination with underfloor heating systems. This is because of the improved strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the special fibres within the screed mix. At about 1mm per day, it has a similar setting rate to standard screed.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to press ahead urgently with the work on account of time constraints, these screeds dry much faster than standard screeds. The vast majority of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are ideal for a wide variety of flooring projects where the faster curing rate of 3-7mm/day is a welcome advantage.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will have to carefully prepare all areas before any other work in order to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any debris, oil, paint and grease on the original floor surface can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be removed.

Screeding Near Aldenham (WD25)

If cleansing products have been used it is vital to remove any traces of soap or detergent, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. At this point any cracks should be mended as these can easily travel up through the laid screed and be visible in the completed surface. During a site survey the screeding company will ascertain what preparation work is needed before any actual screeding work begins.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be applied after the preparation work has been done to prevent ground dampness affecting the screed and floor materials. Different gauges of special polythene could be used as a DPM and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation material.

If your home is located in a place where radon gas is found an extra barrier layer is essential to prevent radon gas from seeping through. An airtight membrane might be enough in areas with relatively low emissions of radon, however in more extreme cases there may have to be a more complicated extraction system to remove any ground penetrating radon gas.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeders will apply a sealant or primer to the prepared base. These primers and sealers will make certain the screed bonds effectively to the base surface and help accomplish a quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by experienced screeding companies in Aldenham following the manufacturer's guidelines.

If you are going to be installing underfloor heating, now 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 secured firmly to insulation panels to prevent potential movement in the course of the screed pouring. When skillfully installed an under floor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and decent quality screed retains its heat, generating an even heat across the floor surface.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared on site and spread onto the base surface. Your proposed use of the room will help your screeding contractor on which form of floor screed is best for your needs. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least twenty four hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 72 hours minimum before you can lay any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds must be followed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and long lasting surface.

You can evaluate the SR level of the completed screed as soon as it's hardened enough to walk on. The test involves the use of a two metre straight edge laid down upon the surface and any variations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest standard and allows only three millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect quality finish isn't required. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation of 10 millimetres.

If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is required to perform the testing. Using specialist equipment the engineer will establish the screed surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. The screed could be subjected to what is known as a drop hammer test to assess flexibility and strength at various points. The specialist measurement and testing tools mean this can only be undertaken by a trained structural engineer observing the guidelines of BS8204.

Latex Screeds Aldenham

When the surface of a floor needs a certain degree of flexibility, it may be best to use a latex self-levelling floor screed. Latex floor screeds usually comprise 2 parts - a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex mixture. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed, since the water which is normally used is exchanged for the liquid latex.

Before the installation of the final decorative covering, this latex product is used for levelling subfloors. This is appropriate for subfloors made of sand/cement, stone tiles, asphalt, wood or concrete, is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a resilient and smooth surface. This latex screeding will produce a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there's a bit of movement in your subfloor.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when screeding is being laid over the top of underfloor heating, depths of 50-75mm may be necessary, and latex screeds aren't a suitable choice in this case.
