TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A mix of cement and sand which is acceptable for everyday domestic use. This mix uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of 1mm each day.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is needed because of construction factors, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength solution to this situation. Polymer screeds are made by many manufacturers and on account of their diverse chemical compositions have specific setting times for each product.

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

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries rapidly and allows you to use the screeded area much sooner. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, depending on the specialised mix, they're usually a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are ideal 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 formula. It's mostly used to produce a clean, smooth floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a surface onto which all sorts of flooring materials can be laid. Even with a thickness of only one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use over the top of underfloor heating. The greater strength and flexibility provided by the special fibres within this screed mix help protect the flooring from thermal cracking and shrinkage. It dries out at an identical rate to a standard screed, at about one millimetre per day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will need to fully prepare all areas prior to any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any debris, oil, grease and paint on the original floor level can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be eradicated.

If cleaning products were used it's important to remove any traces of detergent, soap etc, and allow the surface to dry naturally. At this stage any cracks need to be repaired since these can easily travel up through a newly laid screed and be visible in the completed floor surface. During an on-site survey the screeding specialist will ascertain what preparation work is required before any actual screeding work commences.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be laid. The DPM is made of thick polythene sheeting and different layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon gas then one additional barrier is needed to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. If radon occurs in severe doses then a complete extraction and ventilation system may be installed beneath the screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from the ground.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeding company will put on a sealer or primer to the prepared base surface. A primer helps with the screed bonding correctly to the base and different varieties exist based on which screed type is being applied. These products require experienced tradesmen to apply them in the correct ratios by using airless sprays and other custom-made equipment.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and checked before screeding is applied. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and attached firmly to insulation panels to prevent potential movement in the course of the screed installation process. Warmth will be evenly spread across a floor area in a skillfully installed under floor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient method of heating, it is an ideal choice for most Cambuslang renovation projects.

The screeding can now be prepared on site and spread onto the floor base. The particular requirements of the room will determine the sort of screeding that's used. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least twenty four hours delay before it can be walked on, and a further 72 hours minimum before you can install any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds must be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and long lasting floor surface.

As soon as the screeding has set it can be quality checked to confirm its SR level. The test involves using a two metre long straight-edge laid on the surface and any deviations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there are no disparities greater than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the whole screeded floor.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is comparatively inconsequential the SR3 is the classification and has a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to perform the testing. This assessment will ascertain the overall strength of the screeding and its suitability for the intended use. A drop hammer test will be performed on different areas of the screed and the results documented. The precise measurement and testing tools required mean that this can only be carried out by a fully qualified structural engineer obeying the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screed Cambuslang

When a certain amount of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface you may find that using a latex self-levelling screeding will be best. A latex floor screed comes in 2 parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cement based powder, and the bottle containing a liquid latex component. The liquid latex solution takes the place of the water that's used in normal screeds, meaning it is quicker drying and more flexible.

Used for levelling sub-floors, this latex compound creates a surface for the laying of your chosen floor finish. Suitable for substrate of stone tiles, wood, concrete, sand/cement and asphalt, this screed gives a perfect surface for the application of adhesives that's smooth and resilient. Even where there's movement in your subfloor, this latex floor screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish.

With "floating" screeds, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of thermal or acoustic insulation, latex screeds will not be suitable. Floating screeds with a thickness of 50-75mm are normally used on top of underfloor heating.
