TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A combination of cement and sand which is good for everyday residential usage. This mix uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. This five to one ratio standard flooring screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm per day after application.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there is a need to progress urgently with the work because of time limitations, this screed dries more speedily than standard flooring screeds. They are generally a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are employed in time critical projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use on top of under floor heating. This is due to the increased strength and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking offered by the fibres within the screed mix. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

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

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is required this mix of of cement and latex is used to produce SR1 quality screeding. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all forms of flooring materials to be laid. Even with a depth of only one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Polymer screeds are made by many screed manufacturers and on account of their varying chemical compositions have specific curing times for each product.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Good preparation is crucial for a quality finished screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The existing floor surface should be thoroughly cleaned to eradicate any oil, paint, debris and grease which might affect the bond of the screeding.

Screeding Near Denham (UB9)

If cleansing products were used it is important to remove any residues of soap or detergent, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. It is essential to repair any crevices or cracks in the base to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. A site survey will enable the screeding company to identify this preparation work and finish it before beginning to lay the screeding.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be installed after the preparation work has been finished to prevent ground moisture affecting the screeding and floor materials. Different thicknesses of polythene sheets could be used as a DPM and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation material.

If your house is situated in a place where radon is found an additional barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from getting through. If radon gas occurs in severe doses then a full extraction and ventilation system may be installed under the layer of screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

The final step of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a sealer or primer. Sealers and primers help with the bonding process and are special applications according to the type of screed that's being used. Equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, by certified screeding contractors in Denham observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before the screeding can be laid, any under floor heating (if required) will now be laid out. Insulation panels will be put in place and the cables and heating pipes will be securely attached so that there is no movement whilst the screed is being poured. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system will produce even warmth across the floor area.

If you are not installing underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared in situ and laid. Your intended use of the room will assist the screeding contractor on what kind of floor screed is best for your needs. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least twenty four hours delay before it can be walked on, and a further 3 days minimum before any flooring material can be applied. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds should be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and long lasting floor surface.

You can test the SR level of the finished screed as soon as it is solidified enough to walk on. The basic SR test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge to check for any variations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less being measured across the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10mm or less the quality of the screeding is categorised as SR3 and is suitable for utility and garage areas.

If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is required to carry out the tests. This assessment will determine the strength of the screeded surface and the viability for its proposed use. The screeding will be subjected to what is known as a "drop hammer test" to assess strength and flexibility in various areas. The precise measurement and testing tools required mean this can only be undertaken by a qualified structural engineer following the BS8204 guidelines.
