If cleansing products have been used it's vital to remove any remnants of soap or detergent, and allow the surface to dry naturally. At this stage cracks should be mended as these can easily travel up through a newly laid screed and be reflected in the finished floor surface. An on-site survey will enable your Clydebank screeding installer to highlight these preparation areas and complete them before starting to lay the screeding.

Before any screeding can be poured a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be put down to shield the screed and final flooring from dampness. The DPM is made from thick polythene sheet and various layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screeding.

If your home is situated in a place where radon gas is found a supplementary barrier layer is necessary to stop radon gas from seeping through. A simple air-tight membrane could be suitable in locations with low levels of radon, but in more serious situations there may need to be a more complicated extraction system to remove any harmful radon.

As soon as the base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. These primers and sealers will make sure that the screed bonds effectively to the base surface and help to accomplish a quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by experienced screeding contractors in Clydebank following the manufacturer's guidelines.

If you're installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be properly laid out and installed. Insulation panels will be put in position and the cabling and heating pipes will be securely mounted so that there is no movement while the screed is poured. When properly installed an under floor heating system is an effective way to warm a room and good quality screeding will retain its heat, generating an even level of warmth right across the floor.

The screeding can now be prepared in situ and spread onto the floor surface. Your screeding company will give you advice on which type of screed is appropriate for your needs, in line with your intended use of the room area. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before you are able to install any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds must be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with an even and stable surface.

The SR standard of your screeding can be ascertained once it's set enough to be stepped onto. The standard SR test uses a two metre straight edge to check for any fluctuations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best specification and allows just 3 millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the finish is relatively inconsequential the SR3 is the classification and should have a maximum deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If your screed floor has been installed with specific loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be necessary to conduct these soundness tests. Using specialist equipment the engineer will evaluate the screed strength and viability of use in a load bearing setting. The screed could be given what's known as a "drop hammer test" to determine flexibility and strength at distinct points. Any screed flooring that has load bearing requirements must be approved by a fully qualified structural engineer observing the BS8204 regulations.

Latex Screeds Clydebank

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a level of flexibility is needed, it will be advantageous to apply a latex screed, as opposed to one with a rigid finish. Latex screeds normally comprise 2 parts - a cementitious powder and a latex liquid additive. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the latex liquid, meaning that it's more flexible than other types of screed, and quicker drying.

Before the installation of the final decorative covering, this latex product is used for levelling-out sub-floors. Appropriate for substrate of concrete, asphalt, sand/cement, stone tiles and wood, this screed gives the ideal surface for the application of adhesives that is resilient and smooth. This type of latex screeding will give you a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there's a bit of movement in your subfloor.

When using a "floating" screed, i.e. when screeding is being laid on top of underfloor heating, thicknesses of 50-65mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds are not suitable for this purpose.
