TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is perfect for standard domestic usage and is a mix of cement and sand. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the usual mixture for standard flooring screeds. The standard screed will dry at a rate of 1mm thickness each day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is needed this mix of of cement and latex is used to produce SR1 quality screed flooring. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all types of flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of only 1mm, but still provides a high strength surface for a selection of flooring finishes.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option for professional installers where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Burntisland. The increased flex and strength provided by the special fibres in this screed help protect the floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. It dries at an identical rate to a standard screed, at about 1mm per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to press ahead urgently with the flooring because of time restraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard flooring screeds. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm, subject to the mixture, they're usually a fibre reinforced type of screed and are great for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that's designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where the maximum possible durability and strength is crucial.

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

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish which is durable and hard wearing, time should be devoted to carefully preparing the area before any screed is poured. The existing floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eradicate any paint, oil, debris and grease that might adversely affect the bond of the screeding.

If any products are used during this stage it is crucial to make sure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. At this point cracks should be mended since these can easily travel up through your newly laid screed and be visible in the finished surface. During an on-site survey the screeding specialist will establish what preparation work is required before starting to work on the screeding.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed after the preparation work has been finished to stop ground moisture affecting the flooring materials and screeding. The damp proof membrane is made of thick polythene and various layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screeding.

A further air-tight barrier could be required if your house is in an area that's known to be susceptible to radon gas. If radon is present in severe doses then a full ventilation and extraction system may be installed beneath the screed which will remove any gases that are seeping in from the ground.

Once the floor base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealant or primer is then applied. Sealers and primers help with the bonding process and are special applications according to the type of screed being used. These materials need trained tradesmen to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using custom-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before the screed is applied. The heating pipes and cables are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and make certain that they're held in the correct position. Warmth is spread evenly across a floor area in a properly installed underfloor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient method of heating, it is an ideal choice for many Burntisland home renovation projects.

If you're not fitting underfloor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and laid. The specific requirements of the room will dictate the kind of screeding that is used. Be aware that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk on any laid surface and at least 72 hours before any floor coverings can be applied. If you are looking to end up with a well finished and long-lasting floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to standard and heavy duty screeds where this timescale will be longer.

The SR standard of your screeding can be verified once it's set enough to be walked upon. The test involves using a 2m long straight-edge laid on the surface and any deviations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any deviations of more than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - If the floor deviates from the straight edge by 5mm or less it is classified as SR2 level and is the standard for commercial and industrial projects.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a quality finish is not required. This classification allows for a maximium deviation depth of ten millimetres.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is needed to carry out the tests. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will verify the screed surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" is carried out on several areas of the screed layer and the results documented. Only experienced structural engineers following the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to perform such tests and sign off on the structural safety of screed flooring.
