It may be necessary, according to the intended use of the room, for a structural engineering survey to abide by building regulations on flex strength, load requirements and point loadings of the screed floor.

A skilled and qualified work force is necessary for a successful result and will extend the life of your floor by using the right form of screed for the proposed purpose of your room. There are numerous types of screeding and selecting the appropriate mix and installation technique is crucial if you are to create a top quality floor that's fit for purpose and durable.

There are a number of screeding companies in the Byfleet area so try to get multiple quotations for your project before picking a contractor and know to what standard of finish is it for. For residential homes an estimate will normally be given for an SR (Surface Regularity) calculation of SR1 or SR2. SR2 and SR3 may be cheaper options, but the floor screeding finish might have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect finish. Any imperfections in the screeding may cause problems in laying flooring owing to flat spots, ridges, indentations in the surface.

The regulations and guidelines set out in in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by any Byfleet floor screeding company and they should also be approved by the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc.) to confirm their safe working practices and competence. This accreditation scheme illustrates a company's performance and training in the usage of a manufacturer's merchandise.

Commercial screeders in Byfleet will usually undertake larger screeding projects in shopping centres, warehouses, hospitals, factories, schools and pubs.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is perfect for basic domestic use and is a combination of sand and cement. Five parts sand to one part cement is the typical mix for standard screeds. The standard screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness each day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are needed, by a cement and latex mixture. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be poured to a depth of only one millimetre, but will still provide a strong surface to take a wide variety of flooring finishes.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries rapidly and allows you to use the floor area much faster. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm, subject to the specialised mix, they are typically a fibre reinforced screed and are ideal for flooring projects that have tight deadlines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use on top of under floor heating. This is because of the improved durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the special fibres within the screed mix. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum strength and durability in areas where traffic is expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is needed.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is necessary on account of construction requirements, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength resolution to the situation. Because of their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying drying times which can be verified by studying manufacturer's own product guidelines.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Preparation is vital for a quality finished screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. Any paint, debris, oil and grease on the existing floor surface can affect the bonding of the screed, and must be removed.

Screeding Near Byfleet (KT14)

If any products are used in this process it's crucial to make certain that no residues of soaps, detergents or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor all cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and causing imperfections on the final floor surface. An experienced Byfleet screeding company will address these problems during the site survey and ensure all preparations are complete before pressing on with the next stages of the screeding process.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be applied after the preparation work has been done to prevent ground dampness getting into the flooring materials and screeding. There might be two or three layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If your house is situated in an area where radon gas is present an extra barrier layer is essential to prevent radon gas from entering. This could be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in more serious instances a ventilation system is installed under the floor screed to extract any inflow of radon gas from the ground.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a sealer or primer. These sealers and primers will make sure that the screed bonds properly to the floor base and help accomplish a top quality finished floor. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a primer or sealant, by qualified screeding contractors in Byfleet following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Before the screeding can be laid, any under floor heating will now be laid out. The cabling and heating pipes are securely attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement and ensure they are laid in the correct position. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system will produce even warmth across the floor area.

Of course, if you're not fitting under floor heating, you simply ignore this step and apply the screed. Your proposed use of the room will assist your screeding contractor on what kind of floor screed is right for your requirements. After the application of the screed there'll be a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a 72 hour minimum drying period before the laying of any floor coverings. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds must be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with an even and stable floor surface.

You can check the SR level of the completed screed once it is set enough for walking on. The test involves using a 2m straight edge laid down upon the floor surface and any variations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the whole floor area, if there are no deviations of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is relatively unimportant SR3 is the standard and has a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If your screed has been installed with specific loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be required to conduct the assessment. Using specialist equipment the engineer will verify the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. The screeding could be subjected to what is known as a drop hammer test to determine strength and flexibility at various points. Any screed floor that has load bearing requirements must be okayed by a certified structural engineer heeding the BS8204 regulations.

Latex Floor Screeds Byfleet

When the nature of your floor's surface means that a bit of flexibility is needed, it will be an advantage to use a latex screed, as opposed to one with an unyielding finish. Latex floor screed comes in 2 parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cement powder, and the bottle containing a liquid latex additive. The liquid latex solution replaces the water which would normally be used for mixing floor screed, and is quicker drying and far more flexible than standard screeds.

Before the installation of the final decorative surface, this latex compound is used for levelling subfloors. Providing a durable and smooth surface that is ideal for the application of adhesives, this is is appropriate for use on substrate of sand/cement, wood, concrete, quarry tiles and asphalt. Even if there is a bit of movement in your subfloor, this latex screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish.

Latex flooring screeds are not suitable where "floating" screeds are desired, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid on top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, such as could be the case when you're screeding on top of underfloor heating, and screed depths of 50-65mm may be needed.
