Your screeding specialist will also inform you if a structural engineer is necessary for your undertaking, to identify flex strength, load bearing and point loadings that your screed floor may need to conform with current British Standards and building regulations.

Qualified and skilled tradespeople are necessary for a successful result and will extend the lifespan of your floor by making use of the right type of screed for the intended purpose of your room. A correct blend of screed and the techniques used for laying it are also critical to ensure the final intergrity of your floor.

Before deciding on a screeding contractor from the many operating in the Broughton area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their quote, and also make sure you get multiple quotes from different contractors. The price quote could be based on what is known as the SR, or Surface Regularity calculation. SR1 is the highest level, and while SR2 and SR3 may be cheaper initially, they don't guarantee a perfectly even or flat floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 standard might mean there will be flat spots or ridges that may cause problems when laying your final flooring materials.

The regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by all Broughton floor screeding companies and they must also be accredited by the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc.) to confirm their competence and safe working practices. A contractor holding such accreditations proves they've been assessed and trained in the use of these screeding products and can provide a high quality standard in all areas of their installation.

For the screeding of floors in hospitals, warehouses, restaurants, schools, factories and shops, specialist Broughton commercial screeders will be required.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A blend of sand and cement which is acceptable for basic residential usage. This mix uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of 1mm per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to use the area at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed can be utilised. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm/day, subject to the mixture, they're usually a fibre reinforced screed and are perfect for projects that have tight schedules.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex compound. Mostly used to improve a damaged floor or poor substrate level so as to lay a new flooring surface, like tiles over it. This liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of only 1mm, but still provides a high strength surface to take a selection of flooring materials.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are expected to be high or heavy loading of the floor is necessary, heavy duty screeds offer maximum durability and strength.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is necessary. Polymer screeds are available from many screed manufacturers and on account of their different chemical compositions have distinct setting times for each individual product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional screeders for use with under floor heating systems. This is because of the improved durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the fibres within the screed. It's got a setting rate of one millimetre per day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will have to carefully prepare all areas before any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any oil, debris, grease and paint on the existing floor surface can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eradicated.

If any cleaning products are used in this process it's vital to ensure that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the floor surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. At this point cracks should be repaired because these can easily travel up through your newly laid screed and be reflected in the completed floor surface. A competent Broughton screeding company will pick up on these aspects during the on-site survey and make sure that all preparations are complete before pressing on with the next steps in the floor screeding process.

To protect the screeding layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be laid. Different gauges of specialised polythene may be used as a DPM and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation material.

A further airtight barrier might be needed if your building is in a location that's regarded as prone to radon gas. This can be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in more serious situations a ventilation and extraction system will be installed beneath the floor screed to take away any inflow of air and gas from ground level.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a sealer or primer. Primers and sealers help with the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the type of screed that is being applied. These products require skilled tradesmen to apply them in the correct ratios by using custom-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

This is the time that under floor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and secured firmly to insulation panels to stop any movement during screed installation process. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system should deliver even warmth all over the floor.

Obviously, if you're not fitting under floor heating, you can bypass this stage and get on with applying the screeding. Your screeding contractor will have given you advice on which screed type is suitable for your needs, according to your intended use of the room area. After the pouring of the screed there'll be a minimum 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you are able to walk on the surface, and a 72 hrs minimum curing period for any floor covering installations. This period is increased for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's product guidelines must be followed to the letter to create the best finish and durability of the floor.

The SR level of your screeding can be ascertained once it has solidified sufficiently to be walked upon. The standard SR test involves the use of a 2 metre long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole area, if there aren't any deviations greater than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top specification SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5 millimetres or less it is SR2 quality and is the standard for industrial and commercial floors.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10mm or less the screed quality is classed as SR3 and is highly suitable for garage and utility areas.

If your screed has been installed with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer will be necessary to perform these soundness tests. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will ascertain the screeded surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. The screed should be subjected to a drop hammer test to gauge strength and flexibility in distinct areas. The precise measurement and testing tools mean that this can only be undertaken by a certified structural engineer following the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screed Broughton

It is best to use a latex floor screed when a certain degree of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor. Generally coming in 2 parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cementitious powder and a latex liquid mixture. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds, as the water which is normally used is exchanged for the latex liquid.

This latex compound is used for levelling sub-floors prior to the installation of the final decorative covering. This screed is suitable for subfloors made of wood, asphalt, sand/cement, quarry tiles or concrete, is perfect for the application of adhesives and gives a smooth, resilient surface. If your subfloor has any movement in it, this type of latex floor screed will still produce a flexible, crack-free finish, on which your final floor coverings can be laid.

When installing a "floating" screed, i.e. when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of thermal or acoustic insulation, screed depths of 50-65mm may be required, and latex floor screeds aren't appropriate for this purpose.
