Floor Screeding Alloa Scotland (FK10)

It may be necessary, based on the intended use of the area in question, for a structural engineering survey to abide by building regulations on load bearing, point loadings and flex strength of the screed floor.

Bringing in a skilled and highly trained contractor will ensure you use the proper form of screed for the room's intended usage to extend the lifespan of your flooring. Picking the appropriate screeding materials and the method of installation is critical if you want a quality and durable finish for your floor surface.

Ensure you get at least 2 or 3 quotes for your Alloa based screeding project and also ask to what standard you're getting each quote. The quotation should be based on what's known as the SR, or Surface Regularity figure. SR1 is the best standard, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may be less expensive initially, they do not guarantee a perfectly flat or even floor surface. This could mean that you may need to fix any patches that might cause problems when laying your final flooring solution.

Every Alloa screeding company must adhere to British Standards (BS8204) and should have some form of accreditation from screeding material and equipment manufacturers, e.g. Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor. A contractor holding accreditation proves they have been trained and assessed in the use of these products and can offer a high standard of service in all areas of their installation.

Commercial screeders in Alloa will usually undertake screeding projects in hotels, hospitals, schools, factories, shops and warehouses.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Used in residential projects where the combination of sand and cement is okay for normal floor traffic usage. This mixture comprises a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. This five to one ratio standard flooring screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm per day after laying.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to use the floor at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed can be employed. These are generally a fibre reinforced type of screed which can dry at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are used in time-sensitive projects.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where the maximum possible durability and strength is very important.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex mixture. This is largely used to produce a smooth, level floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. This liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of just one millimetre, but still provides a high strength surface for a selection of flooring finishes.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with underfloor heating and is the suggested choice in these projects. The special fibres in this screed enhance overall strength and durability whilst also safeguarding against thermal cracking and shrinkage. It dries at an identical rate to a standard screed, at about one millimetre per day.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced thickness is needed. Polymer screeds are available from many manufacturers and on account of their varying chemical compositions have specific setting times for each individual product.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Preparation is crucial for a quality finished screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. The original floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any debris, paint, oil and grease which might affect the bond of the screed.

Screeding Near Alloa (FK10)

Any cleansing products which are used in this stage should leave no residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. At this stage cracks should be mended because these can easily travel up through your laid screed and be visible in the completed floor surface. A genuine Alloa screeding company will address these issues during the on-site survey and make certain all preparations are completed before applying the next steps in the screeding process.

Before the screeding can be laid a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed to shield the screed and final flooring from moisture damage. There might be two or three layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

A supplementary air-tight barrier might be needed if your home is in an area that's regarded as prone to radon gas emissions. This can be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in more serious instances an extraction and ventilation system will need to be installed under the floor screed to take away any inflow of radon gas from ground level.

Once the floor base has been properly prepared and all membranes installed, a sealant or primer is then applied. A primer assists in the screed to successfully bond to the base and different varieties exist according to which screed type is being applied. These substances need skilled tradesmen to apply them in the correct proportions by using custom-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Under floor heating can now be installed and tested before the screed is poured. Insulation panels will be laid out and the cabling and heating pipes will be firmly attached so that there is no movement while the screed is being applied. When skillfully installed an underfloor heating system is an excellent way to warm up a room and high quality screeding retains its heat, producing an even level of warmth right across the floor surface.

The screeding can now be prepared on site and spread onto the floor base. The particular requirements of the room will determine the type of screeding that is used. Bear in mind that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk over any laid surfaces and a minimum three days before any flooring materials can be applied. Such time periods will be longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's guidelines must be followed to the letter to produce the best finish and longevity of the floor.

As soon as the screeding has hardened it can be quality checked to verify the SR level. Through the use of a two metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any ridges, dips and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Deviations of three millimetres or less being measured over the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the highest quality and classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the floor deviates from the straight edge by five millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 level and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10 millimetres or less the screed quality is classed as SR3 and is highly suitable for garage and utility areas.

If your screeding has been installed with specific loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be needed to conduct the assessment. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will establish the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. This can include a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Any screeding that has load bearing requirements must be sanctioned by a trained structural engineer obeying the BS8204 regulations.
