Polymer Screeds - These provide an extremely high level of strength with a minimal thickness. Manufacturer's guidelines for drying times are different across the product ranges.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A cement and latex solution which can achieve the highest standard SR1 finish. Typically used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level so as to lay a new flooring surface, such as tiling on top of it. The liquid screed can be laid to a depth of only 1mm, but still provides a high strength surface to take a wide variety of flooring finishes.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area ASAP a fast drying screed might be a good choice. The vast majority of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are perfect for a wide range of projects where the faster curing rate of three to seven millimetres is advantageous.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Designed for maximum durability and strength in areas where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor base is needed.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional installers for use with under floor heating systems. The fibres in the screed mix enhance it's durability and strength while also safeguarding against thermal cracking and shrinkage. At about one millimetre per day, it has the same setting rate to standard screed.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish that is durable and hard wearing, time should be spent on fully preparing the area prior to any screeding material being poured. It is important that any contaminants such as paint, oil, grease or loose debris is eliminated from the floor surface before laying any screed, as these can affect the bonding process that a quality floor screed requires.

Screeding Near Bracknell (RG12)

Any cleansing products which are used during this phase should leave no residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor any cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and producing deviations on the final surface. During an on-site survey the screeding installer will ascertain what preparation work is necessary before any actual screeding commences.

Before the screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture. The DPM is made out of thick polythene sheeting and various layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

If your house is located in an area where radon is present an additional barrier layer is necessary to stop radon gas from seeping through. An airtight membrane might be enough in places with low levels of radon, however in more serious situations there might need to be a more complex extraction system to take away any ground penetrating radon.

As soon as the floor base has been properly prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealant or primer is then put on. A primer helps with the screed to bond successfully to the base and different types exist based upon which kind of screed is being used. Owing to their specialist nature, only trained screeders in Bracknell should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and through the use of bespoke equipment for this task.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before the screed is poured. Insulation panels will be put in place and the heating pipes and cables will be firmly fastened to prevent any movement while the screed is poured. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system should produce even warmth in all areas of the floor.

If you're not fitting underfloor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared on site and poured. Your screeding contractor will have given you advice on which form of screed is appropriate for your requirements, according to your intended use of the room. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least a 24 hour delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further Three days minimum before you are able to install any flooring materials. If you're looking to end up with a well finished and hard-wearing floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to standard and heavy duty screeds where the time period will be increased.

You can test the SR level of the finished screed as soon as it is hard enough to walk on. Using a 2 metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any ridges, dips and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best level and allows only 3mm of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the floor has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5 millimetres or less it is considered SR2 level and is the normal standard for commercial and industrial floors.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect quality finish isn't required. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of ten millimetres.

If your screed floor has been installed with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be needed to perform the assessment. Using specialist equipment the engineer will verify the screed surface strength and viability of use in a load bearing environment. The screed layer should be subjected to what is known as a drop hammer test to assess strength and flexibility in different areas. The specialist measurement and testing tools needed mean this can only be conducted by a qualified structural engineer applying the guidelines of BS8204.

Latex Screeds Bracknell

When a certain degree of flexibility is necessary in the surface of a floor you may find that the employment of a latex floor screed will be advantageous. A latex floor screed comes in 2 parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cement powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the liquid latex, meaning that it is quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

Used in the levelling of sub-floors, this latex product creates a suitable surface for the laying of the final floor finishes. Giving a smooth and resilient surface that's perfect for the application of adhesives, this screed is is suitable for use on subfloors of asphalt, stone tiles, wood, concrete and sand/cement. If your sub-floor has any movement in it, this type of latex floor screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish, on which your chosen floor coverings can sit.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, screed depths of 50mm-75mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds are not suited to this purpose.
