It may be a requirement, based on the intended use of the space, for a structural engineering survey to abide by building regulations on load requirements, flex strength and point loadings of the screed floor.

Working with a highly trained and skilled specialist will guarantee you get the appropriate kind of screed for the room's intended usage to extend the lifetime of your floor. Selecting the right screeding materials and the best installation technique is vital if you want to end up with a durable and quality finish for your floor.

Before deciding on a screeding company from any based in the Cwmbran area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their estimate, and also ensure that you get two or three price quotes. For residential properties an estimate will generally be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) calculation of SR1 or SR2.

This could mean that you might have to rectify any areas that might cause issues when laying your finished flooring solution.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic flooring projects where the blend of sand and cement is ideal for standard floor traffic usage. This mix comprises a five to one ratio of sand to cement. This 5 to 1 ratio standard screed will dry out at a rate of just 1mm per day after application.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries quickly and allows you to use the floor area much sooner. They're typically a fibre reinforced kind of screed that dries out at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are used in time critical projects.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed on account of building factors, a polymer screed offers a high strength solution to this situation. Owing to their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying curing times which can be verified by checking manufacturer's own product guidelines.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum strength and durability in areas where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor base is necessary.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use on top of under floor heating. The fibres in this screed enhance it's durability and strength while also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex solution which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. Largely used to improve a poor substrate level or damaged floor so as to lay a new flooring surface, like vinyl planks over it. They can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Good preparation is crucial for a high quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. Any grease, paint, debris and oil on the existing floor surface can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eliminated.

Screeding Near Cwmbran (NP44)

If cleansing products were used it's essential to remove any remnants of soap or detergent, and leave the surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor then all cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and resulting in deviations on the final surface. During an on-site survey your Cwmbran screeding installer will ascertain what preparation work is required before starting to work on the actual screeding.

To shield the flooring materials and screed layer from moisture 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 screed.

A further air-tight barrier may be needed if your home or business premises is in an area that's known to be prone to radon. An airtight membrane might be enough in locations with relatively low emissions of radon, however in more severe cases there may have to be a more complex extraction system to block any harmful radon gas.

Once these stages have been completed the screeders will apply a primer or sealant to the prepared floor base. A primer assists in the screed bonding process to the base surface and different types exist based on which screed type is being applied. Because of their specialist nature, only trained screeding specialists in Cwmbran should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and through the use of equipment that's made for the task.

If you are going to be installing underfloor heating, now is the time that it will need to be properly laid out and installed. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and firmly attached to insulation panels to stop potential movement during screed application. Warmth will be evenly spread across a floor area in a skillfully installed underfloor heating system, and with it being an effective method of heating, it is an excellent choice for the majority of Cwmbran renovation projects.

Of course, if you are not putting in underfloor heating, you can just ignore this step and get on with applying the screed. Your proposed use of the room will help your screeding company on what sort of floor screed is perfect for your requirements. Be aware that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you're able to walk on any screeded surfaces and a minimum seventy two hours before any floor coverings can be fitted. If you're looking to wind up with a nicely finished and durable floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where the timescale will be increased.

Once the screeding has solidified it can be quality checked to establish its SR level. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 metre straight edge to check for any fluctuations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best level and allows just 3 millimetres of deviation 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 up to five millimetres.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is fairly immaterial SR3 is the classification and should have a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is required to conduct the tests. This test will ascertain the strength of the screed and the suitability for its proposed use. This will include what's known as a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. The specialist testing and measurement tools needed mean this can only be undertaken by a fully qualified structural engineer respecting the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screeds Cwmbran

It is best to use a latex screed when a level of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor. Latex screeds come in two parts - a bag and a bottle - with the bottle containing liquid latex and the bag containing a cement based smoothing compound. Where water is normally used in a screed mix, this is replaced with the liquid latex, meaning that it's quicker drying and more flexible than other standard screeds.

Before the installation of your chosen decorative covering, this latex product is used for levelling-out subfloors. Giving a resilient, smooth surface that is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives, this screed is is appropriate for use on substrate of sand/cement, wood, concrete, quarry tiles and asphalt. This latex screeding will give you a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there's movement in your subfloor.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, screed depths of 50mm-75mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds are not appropriate for this purpose.
