The rules and regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by all Cupar floor screeding contractors and they should also be certified by the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc.) to substantiate their competence and safe working practices. A company holding such accreditation indicates they have been trained and assessed in the use of these screeding products and can deliver a top notch service in all areas of their installation.

For the screeding of floors in salons, warehouses, hospitals, schools, factories and shopping centres, specialist commercial screeders in Cupar will be required.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic projects where the blend of sand and cement is perfectly acceptable for standard floor traffic use. The ratios involved are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of 1mm each day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The first choice where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic properties in Cupar. The special fibres in this screed mix improve it's durability and strength whilst also safeguarding against thermal cracking and shrinkage. The screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm/day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex mixture which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all flooring materials to be laid. Even with a depth of only 1mm, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are high or heavy loading of the floor is required, heavy duty screeds offer maximum durability and strength.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there is a need to move forward urgently with the work because of time limitations, these screeds dry more speedily than standard flooring screeds. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are suitable for a whole host of flooring projects where the quicker drying rate of three to seven millimetres is a big advantage.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is necessary on account of building requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength resolution to this problem. Owing to their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying setting times which you can verify by viewing manufacturer's guidelines.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

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

If any cleaning products are used in this process it is important to make sure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. It is vital to fix any cracks in the base to stop them being reflected and "travelling" up into your freshly screeded floor. An on-site survey will allow your Cupar screeding company to pinpoint this preparation work and tackle it before beginning to pour the screeding layer.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be applied once the preparation work has been done to prevent ground dampness getting into the screeding and floor materials. There might be two or three layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.

An additional airtight barrier may be required if your property is in an area which is known to be susceptible to radon gas. This could be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in severe situations an extraction and ventilation system will need to be installed under the screed to extract any influx of radon gas from ground level.

As soon as the base has been properly prepared and all membranes installed, a sealer or primer is then put on. These sealers and primers will make sure that the screed bonds successfully to the base and help to accomplish a good quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by experienced screeding companies in Cupar observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before screeding is poured. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and secured firmly to insulation panels to prevent any movement during screed installation process. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system should produce even level of warmth in all areas of the floor.

Floor Screed Cupar (Dialling code	01334)

If you are not installing underfloor heating the screed can now be prepared in situ and poured. The specific requirements of the room will determine the type of screeding that's used. After the application of the screed there's a minimum 24 hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk on the surface, and a 72 hours minimum setting period for the laying of any floor coverings. Manufacturer's drying guidelines 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 surface.

The SR level of your screed can be checked once it's hardened sufficiently to be walked on. The standard SR test involves the use of a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole area, if there aren't any disparities of more than three millimetres from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - If the floor has a deviation from the straight-edge of five millimetres or less it is SR2 level and is the standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish isn't required. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation of ten millimetres.

If you require load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is required to perform the tests. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will establish the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. The screeding should be subjected to a "drop hammer test" to assess flexibility and strength in various areas. Any screed flooring that's got point load requirements must be sanctioned by a competent structural engineer observing the BS8204 guidelines.
