Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry quickly and allow you to use the screeded area much sooner.

Good preparation is essential for a quality finished screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing.

If any products are used in this process it is important to ensure that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. At this point any cracks need to be repaired since these can easily travel up through a laid screed and be reflected in the completed surface. A site survey will allow your Ellon screeding contractor to take note of this preparation work and finish it before beginning to apply the screed layer.

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

A supplementary air-tight barrier might be needed if your building is in an area that's known to be prone to radon. This can be just a simple airtight membrane, or in more serious situations a ventilation system will be installed beneath the screeding to extract any influx of radon gas from ground level.

The final step of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealant. These primers and sealers will make certain the screed bonds perfectly to the base and help accomplish a top quality finished floor. Because of their special nature, only skilled screeders in Ellon are capable of using them correctly, safely and through the use of equipment that is made for this task.

Now is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct manner. The cabling and heating pipes are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and make certain they're positioned correctly. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in an expertly installed under floor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient method of heating, it's a great choice for many Ellon renovation projects.

Naturally, if you're not fitting underfloor heating, you can skip this step and apply the screed. Your screeding specialist will have given you advice on which screed type is suitable for your requirements, according to your proposed use of the room. Be aware that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any screeded surfaces and a minimum three days before any flooring materials can be applied. If you're looking to wind up with a well finished and long-lasting floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to heavy duty and standard screeds where the timescale will be longer.

The SR standard of your screed can be ascertained once it has solidified sufficiently to be walked on. Using a two metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any deviations, ridges and dips in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best quality and allows just 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5mm or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial floors.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is ten millimetres or less the screeding quality is classified as SR3 and is highly suitable for utility and garage areas.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is needed to carry out the tests. The testing will ensure your newly laid screeded surface is viable for the load point requirements laid out in the site survey. The screed could be given what's known as a "drop hammer test" to measure strength and flexibility in distinct areas. Only certified structural engineers obeying the BS8204 regulations are permitted to conduct these testing and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.

Latex Screed Ellon

It may be an advantage to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a degree of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor. Normally coming in 2 parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cement-based smoothing compound, and a liquid latex mixture. The liquid latex additive actually replaces the water that would typically be used for mixing screed, and is quicker drying and much more flexible than other types of screed.

Prior to the installation of your chosen decorative covering, this latex product is used for levelling sub-floors. Providing a smooth and durable surface which is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives, this is is suitable for use on subfloors of sand/cement, quarry tiles, wood, asphalt and concrete. Even where there's a bit of movement on your sub-floor, this latex screeding will provide a flexible, crack-free finish.

Latex screeds are not a suitable choice where "floating" screeds are desired, for example when a screed is being laid over a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, such as could be the case when you're screeding over underfloor heating, and thicknesses of 50mm-65mm may be needed.
