They'll in addition assess if a structural engineer is needed to ensure that any load bearing, flex strength and point loadings are met as laid down in building and construction regulations.

The skills and training that a screeding technician brings to your project should guarantee a high quality outcome and help to extend the lifespan of your floors. There are many different kinds of floor screed and choosing the correct mix and installation method is crucial if you are to create a top quality floor that is both fit for purpose and long-lasting.

Before selecting a screeding contractor from those based in the Brierley Hill area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their quote, and also make certain that you get two or three price quotes. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the figure to watch out for when receiving an estimate from Brierley Hill screeding contractors. SR1 is the highest standard, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may be more cost-effective at first glance, they don't guarantee a perfectly even or flat surface. Any error in the screeding (as might arise with SR2 or SR3) can cause issues with laying flooring due to ridges, flat spots, indentations in the surface.

The regulations and guidelines specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by all Brierley Hill floor screeding contractors and they must also be certified by the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc.) to demonstrate their safe working practices and competence. A company holding accreditation proves they've been trained and assessed in using these products and can offer a high quality standard in all aspects of their installation.

Commercial screeders in Brierley Hill will probably tackle screeding projects in warehouses, factories, schools, shops, pubs and hospitals.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A combination of sand and cement which is okay for basic residential usage. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. This 5 to 1 ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of just one millimetre per day after application.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is needed this mix of of cement and latex is employed to produce SR1 level screed flooring. This is mainly needed to produce a smooth, clean floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a finish onto which all sorts of flooring materials can be laid. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries rapidly and allows you to use the screeded area much sooner. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, subject to the mix, they're usually a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are suitable for projects which have tight schedules.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use over the top of underfloor heating. The increased flex and strength provided by the fibres in this screed help protect the floor from thermal cracking and shrinkage. It dries out at an identical rate to a standard screed, at about one millimetre per day.

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

Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Polymer screeds are available from many manufacturers and due to their different chemical compositions have distinct curing times for each product.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time should be spent on carefully preparing the area before any screed is laid. The existing floor surface should be cleaned to eradicate any oil, debris, grease and paint that might adversely affect the adhesion of the screeding.

Screeding Near Brierley Hill (DY5)

If any products were used during this stage it is crucial to make certain that no residues of detergents, soaps or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. At this point cracks should be mended because these can easily travel up through your laid screed and be visible in the completed floor surface. A site survey will allow the screeding installer to pinpoint this preparation work and complete it before beginning to pour the screeding layer.

To shield the flooring materials and screed layer from dampness rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed. Different thicknesses of polythene sheets could be used as a DPM and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.

A further air-tight barrier could be required if your building is in an area that's known to be susceptible to radon gas emissions. If radon gas is present in severe doses then a full ventilation system may be installed under the layer of screed which will remove any gases that might seep in from ground level.

Once the base has been properly prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealant or primer is then applied. A primer assists in the screed to bond to the base and different varieties exist based on which type of screed is being used. These substances require qualified contractors to apply them in the right proportions by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Before any screed can be poured, any underfloor heating (if required) will now set out and installed. Insulation panels can be put in position and the cabling and heating pipes will be firmly attached so there's no movement whilst the screed is being poured. Warmth will be evenly spread across a floor area in a professionally installed under floor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient choice of heating, it is an ideal choice for most Brierley Hill renovation projects.

The screed can now be prepared in situ and applied to the floor surface. The requirements of the room will dictate the type of screeding used. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least twenty four hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further 3 days minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. If you are looking to end up with a nicely finished and hard-wearing floor surface you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where the time period will be longer.

You can test the SR standard of the completed screeding as soon as it is hard enough for walking on. The test involves using a two metre straight edge laid on the floor surface and any variations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest quality and allows only 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the entire floor.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is comparatively unimportant the SR3 is the classification and has a maximum deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If your screeding has been installed with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be needed to conduct the tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will ascertain the screeded surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. The screed could be subjected to a "drop hammer test" to measure strength and flexibility at specific points. Any screed flooring that has load bearing requirements must be approved by a qualified structural engineer applying the BS8204 regulations.

Latex Screeding Brierley Hill

When the make-up of your floor's surface means that a certain degree of flexibility is needed, it will be an advantage to apply a latex screeding, as opposed to one with a rigid finish. Normally coming in 2 parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex component. 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 types of screed.

Used for levelling subfloors, this latex compound provides a suitable surface for the laying of the final floor finish. Providing a durable, smooth surface which is perfect for the application of adhesives, this is is appropriate for use on substrate of concrete, sand/cement, stone tiles, wood and asphalt. If your subfloor has any movement in it, this type of latex screeding will produce a flexible, crack-free finish, onto which your final floor coverings can be laid.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when screed is being laid over the top of underfloor heating, depths of 50-75mm may be desirable, and latex screeds are not a suitable choice in this case.
