The screeding specialist will also inform you if a structural engineer is necessary for your undertaking, in order to evaluate any load bearing, point loadings and flex strength that your flooring might need to conform with building regulations and British Standards.

Bringing in a highly trained and skilled contractor will guarantee that you get the appropriate form of screed for the room's intended usage to extend the life of your floor. Picking the correct screeding materials and the method of installation is vital if you want to finish up with a durable and quality finish for your floor.

There are numerous screeding companies in and around Brampton so make sure you get multiple quotations for your project before choosing a company and know to what standard of finish is it for. For domestic properties a quote will usually be given for an SR (Surface Regularity) level of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the best quality, and while SR2 and SR3 might be more cost-effective initially, they do not guarantee a perfectly flat or even floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 standard might mean there will be flat spots or ridges that could cause issues when installing your final floor surface.

The testing and training of a screeding company by a manufacturer is emphasised through this accreditation scheme, and guarantees reliability and safe working practices on any screeding project which involves their materials.

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

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Frequently used in residential flooring projects where the mixture of sand and cement is perfectly acceptable for standard floor traffic use. The standard screed is a mix of five parts sand to one of cement. After being laid a standard screed dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are high or heavy loading on the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds allow for maximum durability and strength.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is needed on account of building requirements, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength resolution to this situation. Maker's guidelines for curing times differ across the product ranges.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to move forward urgently with the work on account of time limitations, this screed dries much faster than standard flooring screeds. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, depending on the mixture, they're typically a fibre reinforced type of screed and are great for projects which have tight deadlines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with underfloor heating systems and is the suggested option in these projects. The special fibres in this screed mix enhance overall durability and strength whilst also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It sets at the same rate as a standard screed of 1mm per day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A cement and latex mixture which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. Mostly used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like vinyl planks over it. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Good preparation is essential for a high quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. It is vital that any contaminants such as grease, paint, loose debris or oil is eliminated from the floor before pouring any screed, since these can affect the bonding capability that a good quality floor screed needs.

Screeding Near Brampton (CA8)

If cleansing products were used it's important to remove any traces of soap or detergent, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. At this stage any cracks need to be mended since these can travel up through your newly laid screed and be visible in the completed floor surface. A reputable Brampton screeding specialist will take note of these issues during a site survey and ensure all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed. 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 one additional barrier is necessary to stop the gas from entering via the ground. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a complete extraction and ventilation system may be installed underneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that are seeping in from the ground.

The final phase of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealant. Primers help with the bonding process and are special applications according to the kind of screed that's being applied. These products require professional contractors to apply them in the correct proportions by using airless sprays and other custom-built equipment.

If you are going to be installing under floor heating, now is the time that it will need to be correctly laid out and installed. The heating pipes and cables are securely attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure that they are laid in the correct position. When skillfully installed an underfloor heating system is an excellent way to warm a room and good quality screeding will retain its heat, producing an even heat right across the floor.

Naturally, if you're not putting in underfloor heating, you simply ignore this stage and get on with applying the screed. Your intended use of the room will assist the screeding company on which type of screed is appropriate for your requirements. Remember that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you're able to walk over any laid surfaces and a minimum 72 hours before any floor coverings can be laid. If you are laying heavy duty or standard screeds the drying time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed in order to get the best possible finish to your floor.

The SR standard of your screed can be confirmed once it's set enough to be walked upon. The basic SR test uses a 2 metre straight edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best quality and permits just 3mm of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5 millimetres or less it is considered SR2 level and is the standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a quality finish isn't necessary. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of ten millimetres.

If your screed floor has been installed with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be necessary to carry out tests. This test will establish the strength of the screeded surface and its suitability for the intended use. This can include a drop hammer test which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. The specialist testing and measurement tools required mean this can only be carried out by a fully qualified structural engineer respecting the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Screeds Brampton

When the make-up of your floor's surface means that a degree of flexibility is necessary, it will be best to use a latex screeding, rather than one with a more rigid finish. Latex floor screeds come in two parts - a bag and a bottle - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cemetitious powder. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than standard screeds, since the water which is normally used is substituted with the liquid latex.

Used for levelling-out sub-floors, this latex product provides a surface for the installation of your chosen floor finish. Appropriate for subfloors of concrete, stone tiles, wood, asphalt and sand/cement, this gives the ideal surface for the application of flooring adhesives which is resilient and smooth. This type of latex screeding will give you a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there is a bit of movement in your sub-floor.

With "floating" screeds, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of thermal or acoustic insulation, latex flooring screeds will not be appropriate. Floating screeds with a thickness of 50-65mm are generally used over underfloor heating. (Tags: Latex Screed Brampton, Latex Screeding Brampton, Latex Screeds Brampton, Latex Floor Screed Brampton).
