Bringing in a skilled and qualified contractor will guarantee that you use the right sort of screed for the room's intended usage and get the optimum lifespan out of your flooring. The correct mixture of screed and the techniques used in laying it are also vital to guarantee the final intergrity of your floor.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential projects where the blend of sand and cement is perfectly acceptable for basic floor traffic usage. The ratios involved in standard screeds are five parts sand to one part cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre each day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to use the area in question as quickly as possible a fast drying screed can be used. Drying at a rate of three to seven millimetres, determined by the mix, they're usually a fibre reinforced screed and are ideal for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is required this mixture of latex and cement is employed to create SR1 level floor screeding. Primarily used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, like vinyl planks on top of it. Even with a depth of only one millimetre, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is needed due to building requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to the situation. The drying times vary as outlined by product guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with under floor heating and is the suggested choice in these projects. The fibres in the screed increase it's durability and strength while also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. At approximately one millimetre per day, it has an identical drying rate to standard screed.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum strength and durability on floors where traffic is expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is needed.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Good preparation is vital for a high quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The existing floor surfaces should be cleaned to remove any oil, paint, grease and debris which can adversely affect the adhesion of the screeding.

Screeding Near Bordon (GU35)

If cleaning products were used it is crucial to remove any traces of detergent or soap, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" through your screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the final surface. During an on-site survey your Bordon screeding specialist will notice what preparations are necessary before any actual screeding work commences.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down after the preparation work has been concluded to prevent ground dampness affecting the screed and floor materials. Different thicknesses of polythene sheeting might be used as a DPM and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation materials.

If the area is susceptible to radon then a further barrier is essential to prevent the gas from entering via the ground. An air-tight membrane could be enough in areas with relatively low radon emissions, however in more serious cases there might need to be a more complicated extraction system to take away any harmful radon gas.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeders will put on a sealant or primer to the prepared base. A primer assists in the screed bonding process to the base and different varieties exist based on which type of screed is being applied. Because of their special nature, only qualified screeding contractors in Bordon are capable of using them correctly, safely and using equipment that is made for this task.

This is the time that under floor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. The underfloor heating system will be carefully positioned and mounted firmly on insulation panels to prevent potential movement in the course of the screed pouring process. Warmth will be spread evenly across a floor area in a skillfully fitted underfloor heating system, and with it being an effective method of heating, it's a great choice for many Bordon home restoration projects.

The screed can now be prepared in situ and poured onto the base surface. Your screeding specialist will have given you advice and guidance on which screed type is appropriate for your requirements, in line with your proposed use of the room. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least twenty four hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 72 hours minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. If you are aiming to wind up with a properly finished and long-lasting floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to standard and heavy duty screeds where the waiting period will be increased.

You can test the SR level of the finished screeding once it's hard enough to walk on. The test involves using a 2 metre straight edge laid down upon the surface and any deviations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3mm or less as measured over the entire floor area shows your screeding to be of the finest quality and classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screed deviates from the straight edge by five millimetres or less it is SR2 level and is the normal standard for commercial and industrial projects.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is comparatively immaterial the SR3 is the classification and should have a deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

It may also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to do a soundness test. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will ascertain the screeded surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. This can include what's known as a drop hammer test which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Only qualified structural engineers heeding the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are allowed to carry out these tests and sign off on the structural integrity of screed flooring.

Latex Floor Screed Bordon

It is best to use a latex self-levelling screed when a degree of flexibility is required in a floor's surface. Typically coming in two parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cement-based smoothing compound, and a liquid latex additive. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the latex liquid, which makes it quicker drying and more flexible than other standard screeds.

This latex screed is used to level-out a subfloor prior to the final decorative surface being laid. Suitable for subfloors of concrete, wood, asphalt, sand/cement and stone tiles, this gives the ideal surface for the application of adhesives which is resilient and smooth. Even when there happens to be movement in your sub-floor, this type of latex screeding will produce a crack-free, flexible finish.

When installing a "floating" screed, for example when a screed is being laid over the top of a membrane of thermal or acoustic insulation, screed depths of 50-65mm may be necessary, and latex floor screeds are not suited to this purpose.
