Skilled and qualified workers are imperative for a successful result and will extend the lifespan of your floor by using the right sort of screed for the intended purpose of your room. The correct mix of screed and the methods used for laying it are also crucial to guarantee the final quality of your floor surface.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is okay for basic residential use and comprises a blend of cement and sand. Five parts sand to one part cement is the typical mix for standard flooring screeds. The standard screed will dry at a rate of one millimetre thickness per day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use over the top of underfloor heating. The special fibres in the screed enhance overall durability and strength whilst also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It dries out at the same rate as a standard screed, at about 1mm per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry at a quicker rate and allow you to use the floor area much sooner. They're generally a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are used in time dependent flooring projects.

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

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this formula of latex and cement is employed to create SR1 level screed flooring. This is largely 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. Even with a depth of 1mm, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is necessary because of construction requirements, a polymer screed provides a high strength resolution to the situation. Maker's guidelines for curing times vary across the product ranges.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish which is durable and hard wearing, time should be devoted to carefully preparing the area prior to any screed being laid. It is vital that any contaminants such as grease, debris, oil or paint is eliminated from the base before pouring any screed, since these can affect the bonding capability that a quality screed requires.

If any cleaning products were used in this process it is vital to make certain that no residues of soaps or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the finished floor surface. A decent Ealing screeding company will address these issues during a on-site survey and make certain that all preparations are finished before moving on to the next steps in the screeding process.

To protect the flooring materials and screed layer from dampness rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be laid. There may be 2 or 3 layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

A supplementary air-tight barrier might be necessary if your home is in a location that is regarded as susceptible to radon gas. An airtight membrane might be suitable in areas with low radon measurements, however in more serious cases there might need to be a more complex ventilation and extraction system to take away any ground penetrating radon.

Once the base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a primer or sealant is then put on. These sealers and primers will make sure the screed bonds properly to the base and help to create a top quality finished floor. These materials require experienced contractors to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Under floor heating can now be installed and checked before screeding is applied. The heating pipes and cabling are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure they are positioned correctly. When expertly installed an underfloor heating system is an excellent way to warm a room and top quality screeding will retain its heat, generating an even heat across the floor.

Of course, if you are not fitting underfloor heating, you can just skip this step and get on with applying the screeding. Your screeding contractor will have given you advice and guidance on which sort of screed is best for your needs, according to your proposed use of the room. Don't forget that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you are able to walk over any screeded surface and at least seventy two hours before any flooring materials can be fitted. Such time periods will be longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's instructions should be followed to the letter to produce the optimal finish and longevity of the floor.

Once the screed has solidified it can be checked for quality to confirm its SR level. The test involves the use of a 2m straight edge laid down upon the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Disparities of three millimetres or less being measured over the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the finest quality and is specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the whole screeded floor.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is relatively immaterial SR3 is the specification and has a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is required to perform the tests. Using specialised equipment the engineer will verify the screed surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. A "drop hammer test" is performed on several areas of the screed layer and the results noted. The precise testing and measurement tools mean this can only be undertaken by a qualified structural engineer obeying the guidelines of BS8204.
