TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A mixture of sand and cement which is perfect for normal domestic use. Five parts sand to one part cement is the usual mixture for standard screed. After being laid a standard flooring screed dries out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is required. Owing to their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying drying times which you can verify by viewing manufacturer's guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use over the top of underfloor heating. This is because of the increased strength and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the special fibres within the screed. At approximately one millimetre per day, it has an identical curing rate to standard screed.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to use the area in question ASAP a fast drying screed can be used. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are ideal for a whole host of projects where the swifter drying rate of 3-7mm/day is a considerable advantage.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are needed, by a latex and cement mixture. Mainly used to finish off a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, like vinyl planks on top of it. Even with a depth of 1mm, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

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

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will have to fully prepare all areas prior to any other work so as to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It's important that all contaminants such as grease, paint, oil or loose debris is eradicated from the floor surface before pouring any screed, since these can affect the bonding capability that a good quality screed demands.

Any cleansing products which are used in this stage shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry out naturally. It's essential to fix any crevices or cracks in the surface to stop them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. During a site survey your Billericay screeding contractor will establish what preparation work is needed before any actual screeding work commences.

To shield the screeding layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be laid. There could be two or three layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

If your house is located in an area where radon is found a supplementary barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from getting through. A simple air-tight membrane could be enough in areas with low radon measurements, but in more severe cases there might have to be a more sophisticated extraction and ventilation system to take away any harmful radon gas.

Once these stages have been completed the screeding company will put on a sealer or primer to the prepared base surface. Primers and sealers assist with the bonding process and are special applications specifically designed for the kind of screed being used. These substances require experienced contractors to apply them in the right proportions by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.

If you're installing underfloor heating, now is the time that it will need to be properly set out and installed. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and attached firmly to insulation panels to avoid potential movement in the course of the screed pouring process. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a properly installed system will deliver even level of warmth all over the floor.

If you aren't putting in under floor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. Your screeding specialist will have given you guidance and advice on which sort of screed is suitable for your requirements, in line with your intended use of the room. For quick drying screeds there'll be at least a 24 hour delay before it can be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds should be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and even floor surface.

The SR standard of your screeding can be ascertained once it's hardened enough to be stepped onto. The standard SR test involves the use of a 2 metre long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest quality and permits only three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the entire screeded floor.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is ten millimetres or less the screed quality is specified as SR3 and is fine for garage and utility areas.

If you require load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to carry out the tests. Using specialised equipment the engineer will assess the screeded surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. A "drop hammer test" will be performed at several areas on the screed and the results recorded. The precise testing and measurement tools needed mean this can only be undertaken by a competent structural engineer obeying the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.
