Preparation is essential for a quality finished screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. Any paint, oil, grease and debris on the original floor surface can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and should be removed.

Screeding Near Earby (BB18)

Any cleansing products that are used during this stage shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be allowed to dry out naturally. It's vital to repair any cracks or crevices in the base to avoid them being mirrored and "travelling" up into the freshly screeded floor. A reliable Earby screeding contractor will take note of such aspects during the site survey and ensure all preparations are finished before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down once the preparation work has been done to stop ground moisture affecting the flooring materials and screeding. The DPM is made of thick polythene sheet and various layers might be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

Another air-tight barrier might be needed if your property is in a location that's regarded as susceptible to radon gas. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a full ventilation system may be installed underneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from the ground.

Once the floor base has been prepared and all membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. These primers and sealers will make sure that the screed bonds properly to the base and help to create a good quality finished floor. These materials require experienced tradesmen to apply them in the correct ratios by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Before any screed is laid, any underfloor heating (if required) will now be installed. The heating pipes and cables are firmly mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement and make sure they are positioned correctly. When professionally installed an underfloor heating system is an excellent way to warm a room and high quality screed retains its heat, creating an even heat across the floor surface.

Naturally, if you are not fitting under floor heating, you can skip this stage and apply the screed. Your screeding contractor will give you advice and guidance on which screed type is best for your needs, in line with your intended use of the room area. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked over, and a further 3 days minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. Such time periods will be longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's instructions should be followed to produce the best finish and longevity of the floor.

The SR level of your screed can be checked once it has hardened enough to be walked upon. The test involves the use of a 2 metre long straight-edge laid on the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Disparities of three millimetres or less as measured across the whole floor area shows your screed to be of the best quality and is categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface deviates from the straight edge by five millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the standard for commercial and industrial floors.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is ten millimetres or less the screed quality is classified as SR3 and is the standard required for utility and garage areas.

If your screed floor has been laid with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be needed to carry out these soundness tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will evaluate the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. This should include a drop hammer test which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. The precise testing and measurement tools mean that this can only be carried out by a competent structural engineer applying the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Floor Screeds Earby

When the surface of a floor needs a level of flexibility, it is best to use a latex floor screed. Latex floor screeds usually comprise two parts - a cementitious powder and a latex liquid mixture. The liquid latex additive replaces the water that's used in standard screeds, making it quicker drying and more flexible.

Used in the levelling of sub-floors, this latex product creates a surface for the installation of the final floor finish. Providing a smooth, durable surface that's perfect for the application of adhesives, this is is appropriate for use on substrate of sand/cement, concrete, stone tiles, asphalt and wood. If your subfloor has any movement in it, this type of latex screeding will still give you a flexible, crack-free finish, onto which your final floor coverings can be laid.

When using a "floating" screed, i.e. when screed is being laid on top of underfloor heating, depths of 50mm-65mm may be required, and latex floor screeds aren't a suitable choice in this instance. (Tags: Latex Screed Earby, Latex Floor Screed Earby, Latex Screeds Earby, Latex Screeding Earby).

Granolithic Screeding Earby

Granolithic screeding is a type of floor finishing technique used to provide a level and smooth surface for carpets, floor tiles or other flooring products. It's a mixture of cement, sand, and aggregate (for example granite or marble chips) that is applied over a concrete base. The mixture is evenly spread over the surface and levelled using a straightedge to produce a smooth and hard-wearing finish that is durable and long-lasting.

The resulting flooring is slip-resistant, easy to clean and hard-wearing, making it ideal for use in areas with high foot traffic, such as shopping centres, factories and schools.

The granolithic screeding process involves a number of steps, including preparing the concrete sub-base, mixing of the screed mixture, laying of the mixture, and curing of the screed. Correct mixing, application and curing methods are important to guarantee the durability and strength of the granolithic screed. Additionally, the screed should be allowed to fully cure before any flooring materials are laid over it.... READ MORE.
