It may be a requirement, depending on the intended use of the room, for a structural engineering survey to conform with building regulations on point loadings, load bearing and flex strength of the screed floor.

Bringing in a qualified and highly trained specialist will guarantee you get the appropriate type of screed for the room's anticipated usage and get the maximum lifespan out of your floor. There are many different types of floor screed and picking the appropriate mix and installation approach is vital if you are to achieve a quality floor that's fit for purpose and long-lasting.

There are several screeding specialists in the Buckhurst Hill area so make sure you get multiple price quotes for your screeding project before selecting a contractor and know to what standard of finish it's for. For domestic properties an estimate will usually be given for a Surface Regularity (SR) level of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the best standard, and whilst SR2 and SR3 might seem more cost-effective at first glance, they do not guarantee a perfectly even or flat floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there are ridges or flat spots that might cause issues when laying your final floor surface.

Standard Screeds - This is okay for basic residential use and comprises a blend of cement and sand. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. This five to one ratio standard flooring screed will dry out at a rate of just 1mm per day after applying.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is needed this mix of of cement and latex is used to produce SR1 level screeding. Mainly used to finish off a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, such as tiles over it. Even with a depth of one millimetre, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Designed for maximum strength and durability in areas where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor base is required.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the floor at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed might be a good choice.

Screeding installers will have to carefully prepare all areas before any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It's important that any contaminants such as paint, oil, grease or debris is eliminated from the floor before laying any screed, since these can affect the bonding process that a quality screed demands.

Screeding Near Buckhurst Hill (IG9)

If cleansing products have been used it is vital to remove any traces of soap or detergent, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and causing imperfections on the finished floor surface. A skilled Buckhurst Hill screeding company will pick up on these issues during a site survey and make certain all preparations are finished before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

To protect the flooring materials and screeding layer from moisture rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be laid. There might be 2 or 3 layers of different thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon gas then a further barrier is required to stop this harmful gas from entering via the ground. A simple airtight membrane might be sufficient in locations with relatively low radon measurements, however in more severe situations there might need to be a more sophisticated ventilation and extraction system to remove any ground penetrating radon.

The final phase of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a sealant or primer. These primers and sealers will make sure that the screed bonds perfectly to the base and help to achieve a quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a primer or sealant, by qualified screeding companies in Buckhurst Hill following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

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

The screeding can now be prepared in situ and applied to the floor surface. Your screeding contractor will give you advice and guidance on which screed type is best for your needs, according to your proposed use of the room area. After the pouring of the screed there is a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a 72 hrs minimum drying period for the laying of any flooring materials. If you're looking to end up with a nicely finished and hard-wearing floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where the time period will be longer.

You can evaluate the SR standard of the finished screeding as soon as it's solidified enough for walking on. Using a 2m straight-edge the surface is checked for any ridges, dips and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest quality and permits just 3mm of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the entire floor surface.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is fairly inconsequential SR3 is the standard and has a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If you need load bearing checks, a structural engineer is necessary to carry out the testing. The testing will make certain that your new screed surface is viable for the load point requirements set down in the site survey. The screeding will be given what's known as a "drop hammer test" to gauge strength and flexibility at specific points. The precise measurement and testing tools involved mean that this can only be undertaken by a certified structural engineer respecting the guidelines of BS8204.

Granolithic Screeding Buckhurst Hill

Granolithic screeding is an extremely popular flooring material which is frequently used in heavy-duty environments because of its durability and strength. It's made from a mixture of cement, aggregate, sand, and sometimes pigments, which are combined to form a mortar-like mixture. The mixture is poured onto the floor and then smoothed to a level surface.

The resulting flooring is hard-wearing, slip-resistant and easy to clean, making it ideal for use in areas with high foot traffic, such as schools, factories and shopping centres.

The granolithic screeding process involves preparation of the concrete base, mixing the screed mixture, laying the mixture, and giving it time to cure. Correct application and curing techniques are essential for the longevity and strength of the screed. The screed must be completely cured before any further flooring materials are laid.... READ MORE.
