Your screeding contractor will also tell you if a structural engineer is required for your undertaking, to check on flex strength, load bearing and point loadings that your flooring might require to conform with current building regulations and British Standards.

Bringing in a skilled and highly trained contractor will guarantee you use the right type of screed for the room's allocated usage to extend the lifespan of your flooring. There are many different types of floor screeding and picking the correct mix and installation technique is essential if you are to create a top quality floor that's fit for purpose and durable.

There are a number of screeding specialists in and around Bentley so make sure you get multiple quotations for your floor screeding project before choosing a contractor and know to what standard of finish it's for. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the number to watch out for when reviewing an estimate from your Bentley screeding contractor. SR1 is the highest level, and while SR2 and SR3 might be more cost-effective initially, they do not guarantee a totally even or flat floor surface. Any imperfections in the screeding can cause issues with laying flooring because of ridges, indentations, flat spots in the floor surface.

The regulations and guidelines specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by any Bentley floor screeding contractor and they must also be accredited by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc.) to substantiate their competence and safe working practices. This accreditation scheme demonstrates a firm's training and high quality performance in the usage of a manufacturer's merchandise.

Commercial screeders in Bentley will probably tackle larger screeding projects in hospitals, shops, schools, pubs, warehouses and factories.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is ideal for standard domestic use and comprises a mix of cement and sand. The ratios involved are five parts sand to one part cement. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre per day.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is required on account of building factors, a polymer screed offers a high strength resolution to the problem. Manufacturer's guidelines for setting times differ across the various product ranges.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are needed, by a cement and latex material. This self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of just 1mm, but still provides a high strength base to take a varied selection of flooring materials.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum strength and durability in places where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor is required.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area in question ASAP a fast drying screed can be utilised. Most of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are appropriate for a wide array of flooring projects where the speedier curing rate of 3-7mm is advantageous.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional screeders for use in combination with underfloor heating systems. This is due to the increased durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the special fibres within the screed mix. The screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm/day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time must be spent on preparing the area prior to any screed being poured. Any oil, debris, grease and paint on the original floor level can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eradicated.

Screeding Near Bentley (DN5)

Any cleaning chemicals which are used in this phase should leave no residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. It's essential to fix any cracks in the base to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" upwards into the newly screeded floor. A skilled Bentley screeding specialist will address these issues during a on-site survey and make sure all preparations are finished before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down after the preparation work has been concluded to prevent ground moisture getting into the screed and floor materials. Different thicknesses of polythene sheets may be used as a DPM and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.

A further air-tight barrier might be needed if your home or business premises is in an area which is known to be prone to radon gas. This could be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in severe cases an extraction and ventilation system is installed under the floor screed to take away any inflow of air and gas from the ground.

The final step of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealant. These sealers and primers will ensure that the screed bonds effectively to the base surface and help achieve a top quality finished floor. These materials require certified technicians to apply them in the correct proportions by using airless sprays and other custom-made equipment.

Under floor heating can now be installed and checked before the screed is applied. The wires and heating pipes are securely attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure that they are held in the correct position. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system should produce even level of warmth across the floor area.

If you aren't installing underfloor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared on site and laid. Your screeding company will give you guidance and advice on which screed type is appropriate for your needs, in line with your intended use of the room. Don't forget that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk on any laid surface and a minimum three days before any flooring materials can be applied. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for heavy duty and standard screeds must be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and long lasting floor surface.

Once the screed has hardened it can be checked for quality to establish its SR standard. Using a 2 mtr straight-edge the surface is examined for any ridges, deviations and dips in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there are no deviations of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to five millimetres.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect finish isn't necessary. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of ten millimetres.

If your screed floor has been laid with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be necessary to perform these soundness tests. This test will ascertain the overall strength of the screed surface and its viability for the intended use. The screed should be given a "drop hammer test" to determine strength and flexibility in various areas. The specialist measurement and testing tools involved mean that this can only be undertaken by a trained structural engineer observing the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screed Bentley

When a floor's surface needs a level of flexibility, it is better to use a latex self-levelling floor screed. Typically coming in 2 parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cement-based powder, and a liquid latex component. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the latex liquid, making it more flexible than standard screeds, and quicker drying.

Prior to the laying of your chosen decorative surface, this latex compound is used for levelling-out subfloors. This is appropriate for use on substrate of asphalt, concrete, wood, sand/cement and stone tiles, to give a resilient and smooth surface that is perfect for the application of flooring adhesives. If your sub-floor has any movement in it, this type of floor screed will still produce a flexible, crack-free finish, on which your final floor coverings can sit.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when screeding is being laid on the top of underfloor heating, depths of 50 to 75 millimetres may be necessary, and latex screeds are not suitable in this instance.
