The training and skills that a qualified screeding contractor brings to your project should guarantee a high quality end result and help to extend the lifetime of your flooring. A correct mixture of screed and the methods used for laying it are also vital to guarantee the final quality of your floor.

Before picking out a screeding specialist from the many operating in the Bellshill area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quote, and also make sure you get two or three price quotes from different screeders. The quotation should be based on what is known as the Surface Regularity, or SR number. SR1 is the highest standard, and whilst SR2 and SR3 might seem less expensive initially, they do not guarantee a totally flat or even floor surface. This could mean that you may have to fix any areas that may cause problems when laying your final flooring solution.

Commercial screeders in Bellshill will usually undertake larger screeding projects in shopping centres, factories, warehouses, hospitals, boutiques and schools.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A combination of sand and cement which is okay for standard residential use. Five parts sand to one part cement is the typical mix for standard flooring screeds. This 5 to 1 ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of just one millimetre per day after applying.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry at a quicker rate and allow you to use the screeded area much faster. Most of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are perfect for a whole host of flooring projects where the swifter curing rate of three to seven millimetres is advantageous.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex mixture. It is primarily needed to provide a high quality floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a finish onto which all sorts of flooring materials can be laid. This liquid screed can be laid to a depth of only one millimetre, but will still provide a strong surface for a selection of flooring finishes.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with under floor heating and is the preferred choice in these projects. The fibres in the screed increase overall strength and durability whilst also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It sets at the same rate as a standard screed of 1mm per day.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced thickness is necessary. Maker's guidelines for curing times are different across the product ranges.

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

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Preparation is crucial for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. The existing floor surfaces should be cleaned to eradicate any debris, grease, oil and paint that might adversely affect the bond of the screeding.

Screeding Near Bellshill (ML4)

If any products are used in this process it is crucial to ensure that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the floor surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. At this point cracks need to be repaired since these can easily travel up through the newly laid screed and be visible in the completed floor surface. A decent Bellshill screeding company will address these issues during the on-site survey and make certain that all preparations are finished before moving on to the next stages of the floor screeding process.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed once the preparation work has been concluded to stop ground moisture getting into the screed and floor materials. There could be two or three layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.

If the area is at risk from radon then an additional barrier is necessary to prevent the gas from entering from the ground. An airtight membrane may be enough in areas with low radon emissions, but in more serious cases there may have to be a more complicated extraction and ventilation system to remove any ground penetrating radon.

Once the base has been properly prepared and all membranes installed, a primer or sealant is then put on. Primers assist with the bonding process and are special applications according to the type of screed that is being applied. These materials need certified technicians to apply them in the correct ratios by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and tested before screeding is poured. Insulation panels will be put in position and the cables and heating pipes will be securely attached to prevent any movement whilst the screed is being poured. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system will provide even warmth all over the floor.

Of course, if you are not fitting under floor heating, you can ignore this step and apply the screed. The specific requirements of the room will dictate the form of screeding that's used. For quick drying screeds there'll be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked on, and a further 72 hours minimum before you can lay any flooring materials. If you are using heavy duty or standard screeds the drying time is longer and you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines so as to get the best possible finish to your floor.

As soon as the screeding has solidified it can be quality checked to confirm its SR level. The standard SR test uses a 2m long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less being measured across the whole floor area shows your screeding to be of the best quality and classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the finish is relatively unimportant SR3 is the standard and has a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is required to perform the testing. The testing will make certain that your new screeded surface is suitable for the load point requirements set down in the site survey. The screed should be subjected to what is known as a "drop hammer test" to assess flexibility and strength at different points. Any screed floor that's got point load requirements must be approved by a qualified structural engineer observing the British Standards BS8204 regulations.
