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

The training and skills that a screeding specialist brings to your project should guarantee a successful outcome and help to prolong the lifespan of your floor or floors. There are numerous kinds of screed and picking the correct mix and installation approach is critical to create a quality floor that's long-lasting and fit for purpose.

There are a number of screeding contractors in and around Coggeshall so try to get multiple estimates for your project before picking out a contractor and know to what standard of finish is it for. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the number to look for when receiving a quote from your Coggeshall screeding contractor. SR1 is the highest quality, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may be more cost-effective at first glance, they don't guarantee a totally flat or even surface. An SR2 or SR3 standard might mean there are ridges or flat spots that may cause issues when laying your final flooring materials.

British Standards BS8204 lays down the guidelines and regulations that all Coggeshall screeding companies are required to follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc), they must be approved by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. This accreditation program illustrates a contractor's ability and training in the usage of a manufacturer's merchandise.

Coggeshall commercial screeders may be involved in the screeding of floors in salons, shopping centres, hospitals, factories, schools and warehouses.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Used in residential projects where the mix of cement and sand is good for standard floor traffic use. Five parts sand to one part cement is the usual mixture for standard flooring screeds. This 5:1 ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of one millimetre per day after applying.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex formula which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all sorts of flooring materials to be laid. They can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to progress urgently with the flooring due to time limitations, this screed dries more speedily than standard screeds. They are generally a fibre reinforced kind of screed which can dry at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are employed in time-sensitive projects.

Polymer Screeds - These provide an extremely high level of strength with a reduced thickness. The drying times for these vary according to proprietary product guidelines.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with underfloor heating systems and is the advised option in these projects. The increased strength and flexibility offered by the fibres in the screed help protect the flooring from thermal shrinkage and cracking. It dries out at the same rate as a standard screed of 1mm per day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that's hard wearing and durable, time must be spent on preparing the area prior to any screeding material being poured. Any debris, grease, oil and paint on the original floor level can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eliminated.

If any products were used during this stage it's crucial to make sure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the floor surface and it is allowed to dry out naturally. At this stage cracks need to be repaired because these can travel up through your newly laid screed and be reflected in the completed floor surface. A reputable Coggeshall screeding installer will pick up on such aspects during the site survey and ensure that all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

Before the screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed to protect the final flooring and screed from moisture. There might be 2 or 3 layers of varying thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

An additional air-tight barrier could be required if your property is in a location which is known to be prone to radon gas emissions. If radon occurs in large amounts then a complete ventilation and extraction system might be needed underneath the screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from ground level.

Once the base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then applied. These sealers and primers will make sure the screed bonds properly to the base and help to accomplish a good quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by qualified screeding companies in Coggeshall sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before any screed can be poured, any under floor heating (if required) will now be laid out. The cables and heating pipes are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure that they are positioned correctly. When properly installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm a room and top quality screeding will retain its heat, generating an even level of warmth across the floor surface.

The screed can now be prepared in situ and applied to the base surface. Your proposed use of the room will help the screeding company on which sort of floor screed is right for your needs. After the application of the screed there will be a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying screeds) before you can walk on the surface, and a seventy two hours minimum setting period before the laying of any flooring materials. Such periods will be longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's instructions should be followed to achieve the optimal finish and durability of the floor.

The SR level of your screed can be ascertained once it has set sufficiently to be walked on. The standard SR test uses a 2m long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any deviations greater than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top level SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole floor surface.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is fairly inconsequential the SR3 is the classification and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

There may also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. This test will determine the strength of the screeded surface and its viability for the proposed use. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" is performed on several areas of the screed and the results recorded. Only experienced structural engineers following the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to conduct these testing and sign off on the structural integrity of screed flooring.

Latex Floor Screed Coggeshall

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a certain degree of flexibility is needed, it may be an advantage to apply a latex screed, rather than one with a more rigid finish. Normally coming in two parts, latex screeds comprise a cement-based powder, and a liquid latex component. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than standard screeds, as the water that is normally used is substituted for the liquid latex.

This latex compound is used for levelling sub-floors prior to the installation of your chosen decorative surface. Suitable for sub-floors of asphalt, sand/cement, stone tiles, wood and concrete, this gives the ideal surface for the application of adhesives that is resilient and smooth. This type of floor screed will provide a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there is movement in your subfloor.

When a screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex screeds are not appropriate, because in this instance (generally when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you will probably need a thickness of 50 to 65 millimetres.
