Your screeding company will also inform you if a structural engineer is needed for your project, in order to check on load bearing, point loadings and flex strength that your screed floor may require to conform with current building regulations and British Standards.

Skilled and qualified tradespeople are imperative for a successful outcome and will extend the lifespan of your floor through the use of the right form of screed for the proposed purpose of your room. There are numerous types of floor screed and choosing the correct mix and installation process is vital to create a top quality floor that is fit for purpose and long-lasting.

Make sure that you get at least 2 or 3 quotations for your Devizes based screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting each quote. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the figure to watch out for when receiving an estimate from your Devizes screeding contractor. SR2 and SR3 might be more affordable options, although the floor screeding finish could have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect finish. Any error in the screeding (as might occur with SR2 or SR3) can cause issues with laying flooring owing to flat spots, indentations, ridges in the floor surface.

British Standards BS8204 lays down the regulations and guidelines that all Devizes screeding installers must follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc), they should be certified by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use.

Commercial screeders in Devizes will usually undertake larger floor screeding projects in schools, hospitals, salons, factories, warehouses and shops.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is okay for everyday domestic usage and comprises a mixture of sand and cement. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. This five to one ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of one millimetre per day after application.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use over the top of underfloor heating. The increased strength and flex offered by the special fibres in this screed help protect the floor from thermal cracking and shrinkage. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a minimal thickness. Maker's guidelines for curing times differ across the various product ranges.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is necessary this solution of cement and latex is used to achieve SR1 quality screeding. This is primarily needed to provide a clean, smooth floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a surface onto which all sorts of flooring materials can be laid. This liquid screed can be poured to a depth of just one millimetre, but will still provide a strong surface for a selection of flooring finishes.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries at a quicker rate and allows you to use the screeded area much sooner. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, determined by the specialised mix, they are usually a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are great for flooring projects that have tight schedules.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will have to fully prepare the area before proceeding with any other work in order to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The existing floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any debris, oil, grease and paint which can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed.

Screeding Near Devizes (SN10)

Any cleaning products that are used in this stage should leave no residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" through your screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the finished surface. A skilled Devizes screeding specialist will take note of these problems during the site survey and ensure all preparations are complete before applying the next stages of the screeding process.

To shield the flooring materials and screed layer from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be laid. There might be 2 or 3 layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

Another airtight barrier might be necessary if your house is in an area that is known to be susceptible to radon gas emissions. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a complete extraction and ventilation system might be needed beneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

The final step of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a sealer or primer. A primer assists in the screed to bond successfully to the base and membranes and different varieties exist based upon which kind of screed is being used. These substances require qualified tradesmen to apply them in the correct ratios by using airless sprays and other custom-made equipment.

Under floor heating can now be installed and checked before the screed is poured. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and secured firmly to insulation panels to avoid potential movement during screed pouring. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system should deliver even level of warmth across the floor area.

Of course, if you aren't putting in underfloor heating, you can bypass this stage and apply the screeding. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the kind of screeding that is used. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least a twenty four hour delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 3 days minimum before you can install any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds must be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and long lasting floor surface.

Once the screeding has hardened it can be quality checked to confirm its SR level. The test involves using a 2m long straight-edge laid down upon the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best level and permits just three millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish is not required. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation of 10mm.

If you need load bearing checks, a structural engineer is needed to conduct the tests. The testing will make certain that your newly laid screed surface is viable for the load bearing requirements specified in the original site survey. An assessment called the drop hammer test is conducted on various areas of the screed layer and the outcomes noted. The specialist measurement and testing tools involved mean this can only be performed by a competent structural engineer respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeds Devizes

When a certain degree of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor you might find that the use of a latex screed will be advantageous. Latex screeds come in 2 parts - a bottle and a bag - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cement powder. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed, as the water which is normally used is replaced with the liquid latex.

This latex screed is used to level-out a subfloor before the final decorative surface is laid. Suitable for subfloors of asphalt, wood, concrete, quarry tiles and sand/cement, this gives a perfect surface for the application of flooring adhesives that is smooth and resilient. This type of floor screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there is a bit of movement in your subfloor.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when screeding is being laid on top of underfloor heating, depths of 50-75mm may be needed, and latex floor screeds aren't appropriate in this case.
