Floor Screeding Brotton North Yorkshire (TS12): A professional can help to install under floor heating, assist with renovations or level a damaged or uneven floor on your Brotton home or business premises, when needed. Allowing you to lay your final layer of flooring material, (carpets, boards, tiles etc) on top of it, screeding provides a smooth finish to a rough sub-base floor. Screeding a floor allows you to provide a high quality and durable finish for any part of your house.
FLOOR SCREEDING COMPANIES BROTTON
Whatever size or shape of room or area you are renovating, a localin Brotton will supply the expertise and proper working methods to generate the perfect base for your flooring. After a proper evaluation of your screeding project, they'll be in a position to advise you on which method of laying is most effective for your situation, and which is the perfect choice of screed to use.
It may be a requirement, according to the intended use of the area, for a structural engineering survey to conform with building regulations on flex strength, load requirements and point loadings of the screed floor.
Qualified and skilled trades-people are imperative for a successful result and will extend the lifespan of your floor through the use of the right sort of screed for your room's anticipated purpose. The correct mix of screed and the way it is laid is also important to ensure the ultimate durability of your floor surface.
Before deciding upon a floor screeding company from those operating in the Brotton area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their estimate, and also ensure that you get multiple estimates. The quote could be based on what is known as the Surface Regularity, or SR number. SR2 and SR3 could be cheaper options, but the finished floor surface could have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect quality of finish. Any error in the screeding (as might arise with SR2 or SR3) can cause problems in laying flooring due to indentations, flat spots, ridges in the floor surface.
The regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by any Brotton floor screeding contractor and they must also be certified by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc.) to verify their safe working practices and competence. A company holding accreditations demonstrates that they have been assessed and trained in the use of these screeding products and can provide a high standard of service in all areas of their installation.
Brotton commercial screeders might be involved in the screeding of floors in schools, warehouses, factories, hospitals, hotels and shopping centres.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - A combination of sand and cement which is acceptable for regular domestic usage. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the usual mixture for standard screed. This 5 to 1 ratio standard screed will dry out at a rate of just 1mm per day after applying.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A cement and latex material which can achieve the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. Typically used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like tiles on top of it. The liquid screed can be laid to a depth of only 1mm, but will still provide a high strength base to take a wide range of flooring materials.
Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the floor as soon as possible a fast drying screed might be a good choice. These are generally a fibre reinforced type of screed which can dry at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are employed in time dependent projects.
Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is required. Polymer screeds are made by a number of manufacturers and due to their different chemical compositions have specific setting times for each product.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds allow for maximum strength and durability.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use on top of under floor heating. This is due to the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the special fibres within the screed. It sets at the same rate as a standard screed, at about 1mm per day.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Good preparation is crucial for a top quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. Any paint, oil, debris and grease on the existing floor level can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be removed.
If cleaning products have been used it is essential to remove any residues of soap etc, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" through a screed layer and resulting in deviations on the finished surface. A skilled Brotton screeding specialist will address these problems during the on-site survey and make sure that all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next stages of the floor screeding process.
To protect the flooring materials and screed layer from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be laid. There might be two or three layers of varying thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.
If your house is located in an area where radon is present an additional barrier layer is needed to stop radon gas from entering. If radon is present in large amounts then a complete ventilation and extraction system may be installed under the screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from the ground.
As soon as these stages have been completed the screeding company will apply a sealant or primer to the prepared base surface. These primers and sealers will guarantee the screed bonds perfectly to the base and help to achieve a high quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, by professional screeding contractors in Brotton sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.
If you are installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be correctly set out and installed. Insulation panels can be put in position and the heating pipes and cabling will be firmly fastened so there's no movement whilst the screed is poured. Warmth will be spread evenly across a floor area in a skillfully fitted underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient method of heating, it's a good choice for the majority of Brotton renovation projects.
Needless to say, if you are not installing under floor heating, you can bypass this stage and apply the screed. Your screeding company will have given you advice on which screed type is suitable for your requirements, according to your intended use of the room. Don't forget that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you are able to walk over any laid surfaces and a minimum three days before any floor coverings can be laid. Such periods will be longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's product guidelines should be followed to the letter to accomplish the optimal finish and longevity of the floor.
You can evaluate the SR standard of the completed screed as soon as it's solidified enough to walk on. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge to check for any variations in the floor surface.
- SR1 - SR1 is the highest specification and permits just 3mm of disparity from the straight-edge.
- SR2 - SR2 is for standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
- SR3 - For other floors where the finish is relatively inconsequential SR3 is the standard and should have a deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.
If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is required to conduct the tests. Using specialist equipment the engineer will assess the screeded surface strength and viability of use in a load bearing setting. This should include a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only experienced structural engineers applying the BS8204 regulations are permitted to conduct such testing and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.

Latex Floor Screeds Brotton
It is better to use a latex self-levelling screed when a certain degree of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor. Latex screeds come in 2 parts - a bag and a bottle - with the bottle containing liquid latex and the bag containing a cement powder. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the liquid latex, making it more flexible than standard screeds, and quicker drying.
Prior to the installation of your chosen decorative covering, this latex product is used for levelling-out subfloors. This is appropriate for substrate made from sand/cement, wood, stone tiles, concrete or asphalt, is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a smooth and durable surface. If there is a bit of movement in the sub-floor this latex screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish on which to lay your final floor coverings.
When an unbonded screed is being laid over a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation (i.e. a floating screed), latex floor screeds are not a suitable choice, because in this case (normally when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you will probably need a screed thickness of 50 to 65 millimetres.
