It may be a requirement, contingent on the intended use of the area, for a survey by a structural engineer to abide by building regulations on flex strength, point loadings and load bearing of the screed floor.

A qualified and skilled work force is imperative for a successful outcome and will extend your floor's lifespan by making use of the right form of screed for the intended purpose of your room. There are many types of screeding and choosing the correct mix and installation approach is vital if you are to create a quality floor that is fit for purpose and durable.

Ensure you get at least 2 or 3 estimates for your Eastbourne based screeding project and also ask to what standard you're getting each quote. For residential properties an estimate will normally be given for an SR (Surface Regularity) standard of SR1 or SR2. Each of the three SR levels deliver different levels of finish, with SR1 being the highest, with the smallest amount of deviation over the surface area. Any errors or imperfections in the screeding may cause problems in laying flooring because of flat spots, ridges, indentations in the floor surface.

The regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by any Eastbourne floor screeding contractor and they should also be accredited by the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc.) to verify their competence and safe working practices. The testing and training of a floor screeding contractor by such manufacturers is underlined by the use of this accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any flooring project involving their materials.

Eastbourne commercial screeders will be involved in screeding floors in hospitals, restaurants, shopping centres, factories, schools and warehouses.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A mixture of sand and cement which is ideal for regular residential use. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. After being laid a standard flooring screed sets at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement compound. Primarily used to improve a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like tiles over the top of it. They can be as little as 1mm in depth, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a minimal thickness. The setting times for these vary as outlined by proprietary product guidelines.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to move forward urgently with the flooring owing to time restraints, these screeds dry much quicker than standard screeds. The majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are perfect for a wide range of flooring projects where the speedier drying rate of three to seven millimetres is advantageous.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional installers for use in combination with under floor heating systems. The special fibres in this screed mix enhance overall durability and strength while also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm/day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To make sure the screeding is 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's crucial that all contaminants such as paint, grease, loose debris or oil is eradicated from the floor before pouring any screed, because these can affect the bonding capability that a good quality screed requires.

Any cleansing chemicals which are used in this phase shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. It is necessary to repair any crevices or cracks in the base to stop them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into the newly screeded floor. An on-site survey will enable the screeding specialist to highlight these preparation areas and complete them before beginning to lay the screeding.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be applied once the preparation work has been concluded to stop ground dampness affecting the flooring materials and screed. There might be two or three layers of varying thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

If your home is located in a place where radon is found an extra barrier layer is needed to stop radon gas from seeping through. If radon is present in large amounts then a full extraction and ventilation system might be needed beneath the layer of screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

The final step of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a sealant or primer. These sealers and primers will make certain that the screed bonds properly to the floor base and help create a good quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by qualified screeding installers in Eastbourne sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

This is the time that under floor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and secured firmly to insulation panels to stop potential movement during screed pouring process. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system should provide even level of warmth across the floor area.

The screeding can now be prepared on site and applied to the floor surface. The requirements of the room will dictate the type of screeding used. After the pouring of the screed there's at least twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a 72 hours minimum setting time before the laying of any floor coverings. Such time periods will be increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to achieve the best finish and durability of the floor.

Once the screed has hardened it can be quality checked to ascertain its SR level. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 mtr straight edge to check for any deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest quality and allows just three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is classed as SR3 and is fine for garage and utility areas.

If your screeding has been installed with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer is going to be required to carry out tests. Using specialised equipment the engineer will assess the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. An assessment called the drop hammer test is performed at various areas on the screed and the outcomes noted. Only fully qualified structural engineers obeying the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to perform these tests and sign off on the structural integrity of screed flooring.
