TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is acceptable for everyday domestic use and is a blend of cement and sand. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. After laying a standard screed mix dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry rapidly and allow you to use the floor area much sooner. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are ideal for a wide array of flooring projects where the speedier curing rate of 3-7mm/day is a big advantage.

Polymer Screeds - These provide an extremely high level of strength with a minimal thickness. On account of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying curing times which you can verify by checking manufacturer's product guidelines.

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

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this mixture of cement and latex is employed to produce SR1 level screeding. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all sorts of flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of only one millimetre, but still provides a high strength base to take a varied selection of flooring materials.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional contractors for use in combination with underfloor heating systems. The special fibres in this screed mix increase overall strength and durability while also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It has a drying rate of 1mm per day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To make sure that the screeding is of a good quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time should be spent on preparing the area before any screed is poured. It's vital that any contaminants such as loose debris, grease, oil or paint is eliminated from the floor surface before laying any screed, since these can affect the bonding process that a good quality floor screed requires.

If any cleaning products were used in this process it is crucial to make sure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the floor surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" through a screed layer and resulting in deviations on the final floor surface. A skilled Camberley screeding company will address such problems during the site survey and make sure that all preparations are finished before moving on to the next stages of the screeding process.

To shield the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed. There might be 2 or 3 layers of varying thickness polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If your property is located in an area where radon gas is present an additional barrier layer is needed to stop radon gas from entering. If radon gas occurs in large amounts then a full ventilation and extraction system may be installed under the screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from ground level.

As soon as the base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a primer or sealant is then applied. These primers and sealers will make certain the screed bonds successfully to the base and help to create a good quality finished floor. These materials need qualified contractors to apply them in the correct ratios by using airless sprays and other custom-built equipment.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before screeding is applied. The underfloor heating system will be carefully positioned and secured firmly to insulation panels to stop potential movement during screed installation process. Warmth is evenly spread across a floor area in an expertly fitted under floor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an effective method of heating, it's a good choice for most Camberley home restoration projects.

Of course, if you're not fitting underfloor heating, you can skip this stage and apply the floor screed. Your proposed use of the room will help your screeding specialist on which form of floor screed is perfect for your needs. After the application of the screed there's at least 24 hours (for quick drying screeds) before you can walk over the surface, and a seventy two hours minimum setting period for any floor material installations. This timescale is longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's instructions should be followed to the letter to produce the optimum finish and durability of the floor.

The SR level of your screed can be ascertained once it's solidified enough to be walked on. Through the use of a 2m straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any deviations, dips and ridges in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best specification and permits only 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5 millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 level and is the normal standard for commercial and industrial floors.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10mm or less the screed quality is classified as SR3 and is suitable for garage and utility areas.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is required to conduct the tests. The testing will make certain that your new screeding is viable for the load point requirements set down in the original site survey. A drop hammer test is carried out at several areas on the screed and the results noted. Any screed flooring that's got load bearing requirements must be approved by a fully qualified structural engineer observing the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeding Camberley

When the nature of your floor's surface means that a level of flexibility is needed, it will be best to use a latex self-levelling screed, rather than one with a more rigid finish. Latex screeds come in 2 parts - a bag and a bottle - with the bottle containing latex liquid and the bag containing a cemetitious powder. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than standard screeds, since the water that's normally used is replaced with the latex liquid.

This latex compound is used for levelling-out subfloors prior to the laying of your chosen decorative covering. Giving a smooth, resilient surface that's perfect for the application of adhesives, this screeding is is suitable for use on substrate of sand/cement, wood, stone tiles, asphalt and concrete. Even where there happens to be a bit of movement on your subfloor, this type of latex screeding will give you a flexible, crack-free finish.

When installing a "floating" screed, for example when a screed is being laid over a membrane of either thermal or acoustic insulation, screed thicknesses of 50-65mm may be necessary, and latex floor screeds aren't suited to this purpose.
