Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement compound.

The liquid screed can be laid to a depth of only one millimetre, but will still provide a high strength surface to take a varied selection of flooring materials.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

If cleaning products have been used it's crucial to remove any traces of soap, detergent etc, and leave the surface to dry naturally. It is necessary to fix any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to prevent them being visible and "travelling" up into your newly screeded floor. An on-site survey will allow your Bishopbriggs screeding installer to highlight these preparation areas and finish them before beginning to lay the screeding.

Before any screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be put down to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture damage. There may be two or three layers of different thickness polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon then a further barrier is essential to stop the gas from entering via the ground. If radon gas occurs in severe doses then a complete extraction and ventilation system might be needed under the screed which will remove any gases that might seep in from the ground.

As soon as the base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a sealer or primer is then applied. These sealers and primers will make certain that the screed bonds perfectly to the base and help produce a good quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, by experienced screeding installers in Bishopbriggs observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

If you are installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be properly laid out and installed. Insulation panels can be put in place and the heating pipes and wires will be securely mounted to prevent any movement whilst the screed is being poured. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system should provide even level of warmth across the floor area.

Needless to say, if you're not installing under floor heating, you can just skip this step and apply the screed. Your screeding company will have given you advice on which sort of screed is best for your requirements, in line with your intended use of the room. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. Such periods will be longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to accomplish the optimum finish and longevity of the floor.

You can assess the SR standard of the finished screeding once it's solidified enough to walk on. The basic SR test uses a 2m long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less being measured across the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the highest quality and specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface deviates from the straight edge by 5 millimetres or less it is considered SR2 level and is the normal standard for commercial and industrial projects.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is relatively unimportant the SR3 is the standard and has a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

There might also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. This test will establish the overall strength of the screeding and the suitability for its proposed use. The screeding could be given a "drop hammer test" to measure flexibility and strength in different areas. Only fully qualified structural engineers following the BS8204 regulations are allowed to perform such testing and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.

Latex Floor Screeds Bishopbriggs

When a floor's surface needs a certain amount of flexibility, it might be wise to use a latex self-levelling screeding. Latex screeds come in two parts - a bag and a bottle - with the bottle containing liquid latex and the bag containing a cemetitious powder. The liquid latex additive replaces the water that is used in standard screeds, making it quicker drying and more flexible.

This latex product is used for levelling subfloors in advance of the laying of the final decorative covering. Giving a durable and smooth surface that is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives, this is is suitable for use on subfloors of asphalt, concrete, quarry tiles, wood and sand/cement. If there happens to be a bit of movement in the subfloor this type of latex screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish on which to lay your final floor coverings.

With "floating" screeds, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, latex flooring screeds will not be suitable. Floating screeds with a depth of 50 to 75 millimetres are usually used on top of underfloor heating.
