Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to progress urgently with the flooring due to time constraints, these screeds dry more speedily than standard flooring screeds. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, subject to the mix, they are usually a fibre reinforced screed and are great for flooring projects which have tight schedules.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement formula which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. Mainly used to finish off a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like tiles on top of it. The liquid screed can be laid to a depth of just 1mm, but still provides a high strength base to take a selection of flooring finishes.

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

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that's designed for heavy traffic and high load areas where the maximum possible durability and strength is vital.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Good preparation is vital for a quality finished screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. It is important that any contaminants such as loose debris, oil, grease or paint is eliminated from the floor before laying any screed, since these can affect the adhesion process that a quality screed requires.

If any cleaning products are used during this stage it is important to make sure that no residues of soaps or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and causing deviations on the finished floor surface. During an on-site survey your Edenbridge screeding specialist will be able to see what preparation work is necessary before starting to work on the actual screeding.

To protect the screeding layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be laid. The damp proof membrane is made of thick polythene and various layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If the area is susceptible to radon then an additional barrier is needed to stop this harmful gas from entering via the ground. This could be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in more serious cases a ventilation and extraction system will be installed beneath the screeding to extract any influx of air and gas from the ground.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeding company will apply a sealer or primer to the prepared base. These sealers and primers will make certain that the screed bonds effectively to the floor base and help to create a good quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays are used to apply a sealant or primer, by experienced screeding contractors in Edenbridge observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

Under floor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before screeding is poured. The heating pipes and cabling are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure they're positioned correctly. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system will provide even level of warmth all over the floor.

Obviously, if you aren't putting in underfloor heating, you can just ignore this step and apply the screed. Your use of the room will assist your screeding company on which form of screed is perfect for your needs. After the pouring of the screed there will be at least twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk over the surface, and a seventy two hour minimum drying period before the laying of any flooring materials. If you are using heavy duty or standard screeds the drying time is longer and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed so as to get the best finish to your floor.

As soon as the screeding has set it can be checked for quality to ascertain its SR standard. The basic SR test uses a two metre long straight-edge to check for any variations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best standard and allows only 3 millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the floor has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5mm or less it is classified as SR2 level and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the finish is fairly inconsequential the SR3 is the standard and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

It might also be necessary for a structural engineer to perform a soundness test. This assessment will establish the overall strength of the screeded surface and its viability for the proposed use. The screed layer could be given a "drop hammer test" to determine flexibility and strength at different points. Only trained structural engineers following the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to perform such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of screed flooring.

Latex Screeds Edenbridge

It is advantageous to use a latex floor screed when a level of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface. Typically coming in two parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cementitious powder and a liquid latex component. Whereby water is normally used in a screed mix, this is replaced with the liquid latex, making it quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

Used for levelling-out subfloors, this latex compound provides a suitable surface for the installation of the final floor finishes. Giving a smooth, durable surface that is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives, this is is suitable for use on subfloors of concrete, quarry tiles, asphalt, wood and sand/cement. This type of latex screeding will provide a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there happens to be movement in your sub-floor.

When a screed is being laid over a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex screeds aren't appropriate, because in such cases (typically when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you'll probably need a screed thickness of 50 to 65 millimetres.
