Floor Screeding Aldridge West Midlands (WS9): A professional floor screeding company can assist with renovations, help to install under floor heating or level a damaged or uneven floor on your Aldridge property, when needed. Floor screeding delivers a smooth finish to a basic sub-base floor, and allows you to lay your final layer of flooring material, (tiles, carpets, boards etc) on top of it. Floor screeding will provide a durable, quality surface for almost any room.
FLOOR SCREEDING CONTRACTORS ALDRIDGE
Whatever shape or size of room or area you are renovating, a local floor screeding specialist in Aldridge will supply the experience and proper working practices to generate a perfect base for your floors. After evaluating your project they will advise you about the optimal choice of screed and which technique for laying it is most suitable for your situation.
The screeding contractor will also inform you if a structural engineer is necessary for your undertaking, to identify any load bearing, flex strength and point loadings that your flooring may require to conform with British Standards and building regulations.
Bringing in a highly trained and skilled contractor will guarantee that you get the appropriate type of screed for the room's anticipated purpose and get the optimum lifespan out of the resulting floor. Selecting the appropriate screeding materials and the best installation technique is critical if you want to finish up with a quality and durable finish for your floor surface.
Make certain that you get two or three quotes for your Aldridge floor screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each price quote is for. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the number to watch out for when studying an estimate from Aldridge screeding companies. SR2 and SR3 will be less expensive options, but the floor screeding finish could have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect quality of finish. Any error in the screeding can cause issues with laying flooring because of indentations, flat spots, ridges in the floor surface.
British Standards BS8204 lays down the guidelines and regulations that all Aldridge screeding contractors must follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc), they must be certified by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. A company holding such accreditations demonstrates they've been trained and assessed in the use of these products and can provide a top notch service in all areas of their installation.
Commercial screeders in Aldridge will probably tackle larger floor screeding projects in restaurants, hospitals, warehouses, shopping centres, factories and schools.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - This is okay for normal residential usage and comprises a mix of cement and sand. This mixture uses a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of 1mm each day.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry quickly and allow you to use the floor area much faster. They are normally a fibre reinforced kind of screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are employed in time critical flooring projects.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that is designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where maximum strength and durability is crucial.
Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed due to building requirements, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength solution to the situation. Because of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying setting times which you can verify by reading manufacturer's own product guidelines.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with under floor heating systems and is the advised choice in these projects. This is because of the increased durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the fibres within the screed. It's got a setting rate of one millimetre per day.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is required this formula of cement and latex is employed to create SR1 quality screeding. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all flooring materials to be laid. They can be as little as 1mm thick, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Screeding companies will need to prepare all areas prior to any other work in order to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. It's vital that any contaminants such as oil, grease, paint or loose debris is eliminated from the floor before pouring any screed, because these can affect the bonding capability that a quality floor screed demands.
If cleaning products have been used it is important to remove any residues of soap or detergent, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. It is necessary to repair any cracks or crevices in the base to prevent them being visible and "travelling" up into the freshly screeded floor. An experienced Aldridge screeding installer will take note of these problems during a site survey and make sure all preparations are completed before applying the next stages of the screeding process.
Before the screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be put down to protect the screed and final flooring from moisture damage. Different gauges of polythene sheeting may be used as a DPM and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation materials.
If your property is located in a place where radon gas is found an additional barrier layer is essential to stop radon gas from entering. If radon is present in severe doses then a full extraction and ventilation system might be needed beneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that might seep in from ground level.
Once these stages have been completed the screeding company will put on a primer or sealer to the prepared base surface. Primers and sealers help with the bonding process and are specialist applications matched to the kind of screed being used. Owing to their special nature, only experienced screeding specialists in Aldridge should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and using equipment that is made for the task.
Before the screeding can be poured, any under floor heating (if required) will now set out and installed. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and mounted firmly on insulation panels to prevent potential movement in the course of the screed pouring process. Warmth is spread evenly across the floor in a properly installed under floor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient method of heating, it's a great choice for most Aldridge renovation projects.
If you aren't putting in under floor heating the screed can now be prepared on site and poured. The specific requirements of the room will determine the kind of screeding used. Don't forget that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you are able to walk on any screeded surfaces and a minimum 72 hours before any flooring materials can be laid. This time period is longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines must be followed to create the best finish and durability of the floor.
The SR standard of your screed can be confirmed once it's hardened enough to be walked on. The basic SR test uses a 2m straight edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.
- SR1 - SR1 is the best specification and allows just 3 millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
- SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the entire screed.
- SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish isn't necessary. This classification allows for a maximium deviation depth of 10 millimetres.
It may also be necessary for a structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. Using specialised equipment the engineer will ascertain the screed surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. This will include what's known as a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. The precise testing and measurement tools mean that this can only be conducted by a qualified structural engineer observing the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.
