The guidelines and regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by all Barton-upon-Humber floor screeding contractors and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc.) to demonstrate their competence and safe working practices.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Frequently used in residential flooring projects where the mixture of cement and sand is ideal for standard floor traffic usage. The ratios involved in standard screeds are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. The standard screed will dry at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is required due to construction factors, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to this problem. Due to their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying curing times which you can verify by checking manufacturer's guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favourite choice of professional screeders for use with under floor heating systems. The fibres in this screed mix increase it's strength and durability while also safeguarding against thermal cracking and shrinkage. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is needed this mix of of cement and latex is employed to produce SR1 quality floor screeding. This is mostly needed to provide a smooth, level floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a surface onto which all types of flooring materials can be laid. The liquid screed can be laid to a depth of just one millimetre, but will still provide a high strength surface to take a wide range of flooring finishes.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are high or heavy loading of the floor is required, heavy duty screeds deliver maximum strength and durability.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry at a quicker rate and allow you to use the floor area much faster. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm, subject to the mix, they are normally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are ideal for projects which have tight schedules.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To make sure the screeding is of a good quality finish which is hard wearing and durable, time should be devoted to carefully preparing the area before any screed is poured. The existing floor surface should be cleaned to remove any grease, debris, oil and paint that might adversely affect the adhesion of the screeding.

Screeding Near Barton-upon-Humber (DN18)

If cleaning products have been used it's vital to remove any remnants of detergent, soap etc, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. It is vital to fix any cracks in the floor surface to prevent them being mirrored and "travelling" up into the newly screeded floor. During a site survey your Barton-upon-Humber screeding company will ascertain what preparation work is required before any actual screeding work starts.

To shield the flooring materials and screed layer from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be laid. There may be two or three layers of varying thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.

If your home is located in an area where radon is present a supplementary barrier layer is needed to prevent radon gas from entering. If radon gas is present in severe doses then a complete ventilation and extraction system may be installed beneath the screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from the ground.

Once these stages have been completed the screeders will apply a sealant or primer to the prepared base surface. These sealers and primers will make certain the screed bonds successfully to the base and help achieve a top quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by certified screeding companies in Barton-upon-Humber observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

If you are going to be installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be properly laid out and installed. Insulation panels will be put in place and the cabling and heating pipes will be securely fastened so there's no movement whilst the screed is being applied. When properly installed an under floor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and good quality screeding retains its heat, generating an even heat right across the floor surface.

Obviously, if you're not putting in under floor heating, you can bypass this step and apply the floor screed. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the sort of screeding that is used. After the application of the screed there will be at least 24 hours (for quick drying screeds) before you are able to walk upon the surface, and a 72 hours minimum curing period for the laying of any flooring materials. If you are aiming to end up with a properly finished and long-lasting floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where the time period will be increased.

As soon as the screed has solidified it can be quality checked to ascertain the SR level. The basic SR test uses a two metre long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best level and allows only three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to five millimetres.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the finish is fairly unimportant SR3 is the classification and has a maximum deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is necessary to perform the testing. This test will establish the overall strength of the screed and its suitability for the proposed use. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" will be performed at several areas on the screed layer and the outcomes noted. Only experienced structural engineers obeying the BS8204 regulations are allowed to conduct these testing and sign off on the structural safety of screed flooring.
