Floor Screeding Ash Surrey (GU12): A professional floor screeding company can help to install under floor heating, level an uneven or damaged floor or assist with renovations on your Ash home, when necessary. A screed is used to generate a smooth floor surface over a rough concrete sub-base and give a level foundation for you final flooring material. The screeding is an important process to ensure a durable and quality finish to the entire floor structure.
FLOOR SCREEDING COMPANIES ASH
It doesn't matter how big or small the room is that you require to be levelled, a certified floor screeding company in Ash will have the essential equipment, expertise and knowledge to provide you with an excellent level of service. They will be ready to advise you about the correct type of screed your project requires, and how best to apply and install it.
They will likewise assess if a structural engineer is needed to make certain that any load bearing, flex strength and point loadings are followed as set out in building and construction regulations.
Skilled and qualified workers are necessary for a successful outcome and will extend the life of your floor through the use of the right sort of screed for the proposed purpose of your room. There are many different kinds of floor screed and picking the appropriate mix and laying process is critical if you are to achieve a quality floor that's fit for purpose and long-lasting.
Make certain that you get at least 2 or 3 estimates for your Ash based screeding project and also ask to what standard you're getting each quote. The price quote may be based on what's known as the Surface Regularity, or SR figure. SR2 and SR3 could be less expensive options, but the floor screeding finish could have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect finish. Any errors in the screeding may cause issues with laying flooring because of indentations, flat spots, ridges in the surface.
British Standards BS8204 sets down the guidelines and regulations that all Ash screeding contractors are required to follow, and if working with specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete etc), they should be certified by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. A contractor holding accreditation indicates they have been assessed and trained in the use of these products and can provide a top notch service in all areas of their installation.
For larger screeding projects in shopping centres, schools, boutiques, factories, warehouses and hospitals, dedicated commercial screeders in Ash will be needed.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic projects where the combination of sand and cement is ideal for regular floor traffic use. This mix uses a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of one millimetre thickness per day.
Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is necessary. Polymer screeds are made by many screed manufacturers and because of their varying chemical compositions have distinct curing times for each individual product.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favourite choice of professional installers for use with underfloor heating systems. This is because of the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the special fibres within the screed mix. It has a setting rate of one millimetre per day.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to press ahead urgently with the flooring because of time limitations, this screed dries much faster than standard flooring screeds. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, determined by the mixture, they are generally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are great for projects which have tight schedules.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where maximum durability and strength is vital.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement material which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be laid to a depth of just one millimetre, but will still provide a high strength surface to take a wide variety of flooring materials.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Screeding installers will have to fully prepare the area before proceeding with any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It's important that all contaminants such as paint, grease, oil or loose debris is eradicated from the floor before pouring any screed, because these can affect the adhesion capability that a quality floor screed requires.
If any cleaning products were used during this stage it's important to make certain that no residues of soaps, detergents or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and resulting in deviations on the finished floor surface. A site survey will enable your Ash screeding contractor to highlight these preparation areas and complete them before beginning to pour the screeding.
To shield the flooring materials and screeding layer from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be laid. There may be 2 or 3 layers of varying thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.
A further airtight barrier might be necessary if your building is in a location that's regarded as prone to radon. An air-tight membrane might be suitable in places with low levels of radon, but in more severe cases there might have to be a more complex extraction system to take away any harmful radon gases.
As soon as the base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a primer or sealant is then applied. A primer helps with the screed bonding correctly to the base surface and different types exist according to which screed type is being used. On account of their special nature, only experienced screeding contractors in Ash are capable of using them safely and correctly and using bespoke equipment for the task.
Under floor heating can now be installed and tested before the screed is poured. Insulation panels can be positioned and the wires and heating pipes will be firmly fastened to prevent any movement whilst the screed is applied. When expertly installed an under floor heating system is an efficient way to warm a room and decent quality screeding will retain its heat, producing an even heat right across the floor surface.
If you're not installing under floor heating the screed can now be prepared on site and laid. Your screeding company will give you advice on which screed type is appropriate for your needs, according to your proposed use of the room area. Remember that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk over any screeded surface and a minimum seventy two hours before any flooring can be fitted. This time period is longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines must be followed to the letter to achieve the best finish and durability of the floor.
Once the screeding has solidified it can be checked for quality to confirm the SR standard. Through the use of a two metre straight-edge the surface is checked for any ridges, dips and deviations in the surface of the screed.
- SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there are no deviations of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you have a top specification SR1 standard surface.
- SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the entire screeded surface.
- SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10 millimetres or less the screed quality is categorised as SR3 and is highly suitable for garage and utility areas.
It may also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. This test will establish the strength of the screed surface and its viability for the intended use. This should include a drop hammer test which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Any screeding that's got load bearing requirements must be sanctioned by a trained structural engineer obeying the BS8204 regulations.
