A correct blend of screed and the techniques used in laying it are also crucial to guarantee the ultimate intergrity of your floor surface.

SR1 is the highest level, and while SR2 and SR3 may be more cost-effective at first glance, they don't guarantee a perfectly flat or even surface.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential flooring projects where the mix of cement and sand is acceptable for basic floor traffic usage. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. Once laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of 1mm per day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional screeders for use with underfloor heating systems. This is due to the improved strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the special fibres within the screed. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds provide maximum strength and durability.

Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a reduced thickness. The setting times vary according to product guidelines.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement mixture which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. Mostly used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks over the top of it. This liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of just one millimetre, but still provides a strong surface to take a wide variety of flooring materials.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to progress urgently with the work due to time limitations, these screeds dry much quicker than standard flooring screeds. These are usually a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are employed in time-sensitive flooring projects.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To make sure that the screeding is of a good quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time must be spent on fully preparing the area prior to any screed being poured. It's crucial that any contaminants such as oil, loose debris, grease or paint is eliminated from the base before pouring any screed, as these can affect the adhesion capability that a good quality floor screed needs.

Any cleansing products that are used in this stage shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. It's vital to fix any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" up into your newly screeded floor. During a site survey the screeding specialist will establish what preparation work is needed before starting to work on the actual screeding.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down once the preparation work has been concluded to prevent ground dampness getting into the flooring materials and screed. Different thicknesses of polythene sheeting could be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon then an additional barrier is needed to stop the gas from entering via the ground. This can be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in more serious cases a ventilation system will be installed under the screed to extract any influx of air and gas from ground level.

As soon as the base has been properly prepared and any DPMs installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. These sealers and primers will make sure the screed bonds properly to the floor base and help achieve a high quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by certified screeding contractors in Codsall following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Now is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct manner. The underfloor heating system will be carefully positioned and secured firmly to insulation panels to prevent potential movement during screed application. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system should deliver even warmth in all areas of the floor.

The screeding can now be prepared on site and poured onto the base. Your screeding contractor will have given you guidance and advice on which form of screed is appropriate for your requirements, according to your intended use of the room. Remember that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any screeded surface and a minimum seventy two hours before any flooring can be laid. Such periods will be increased for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's guidelines must be followed to achieve the optimal finish and durability of the floor.

Once the screed has set it can be quality checked to establish the SR standard. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest level and allows only three millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the entire floor.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is ten millimetres or less the screeding quality is categorised as SR3 and is fine for garage and utility areas.

If your screed floor has been installed with particular loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be necessary to perform tests. The testing will make certain that your new screeding is viable for the load bearing requirements set down in the site survey. The screed layer will be given a "drop hammer test" to measure strength and flexibility at specific points. The precise measurement and testing tools required mean this can only be carried out by a competent structural engineer obeying the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeding Codsall

When a certain amount of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor you might find that using a latex self-levelling screed will be advantageous. Latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cement powder, and the bottle containing a liquid latex. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than standard screeds, since the water that's normally used is substituted for the latex liquid.

This latex screed product is used to level-out a sub-floor prior to the final decorative surface being installed. This is appropriate for sub-floors made of quarry tiles, concrete, asphalt, wood or sand/cement, is perfect for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a smooth, durable surface. This type of screed will produce a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there happens to be movement in your sub-floor.

Latex flooring screeds are not suitable where "floating" screeds are required, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid over a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, such as could be the case when you are screeding on top of underfloor heating, and screed depths of 50 to 75 millimetres may be needed.
