If cleansing products have been used it is important to remove any residues of detergent, soap etc, and allow the surface to dry naturally. At this stage any cracks should be repaired because these can travel up through the newly laid screed and be reflected in the finished surface. During an on-site survey your Enderby screeding contractor will be able to see what preparation work is required before starting to work on the actual screeding.

To protect the screeding layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed. Different thicknesses of special polythene may be used as a DPM and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation materials.

If your house is situated in a place where radon gas is present an additional barrier layer is necessary to stop radon gas from entering. If radon is present in severe doses then a full extraction and ventilation system might be needed under the screed which will remove any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

The final stage of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a sealer or primer. Sealers and primers assist with the bonding process and are special applications matched to the type of screed that is being used. Owing to their specialist nature, only qualified screeding contractors in Enderby are capable of using them safely and correctly and through the use of bespoke equipment for the task.

Before any screed can be poured, any underfloor heating (if required) will now be installed. The heating pipes and cabling are securely mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement and make certain that they're held in the correct position. When skillfully installed an underfloor heating system is an excellent way to warm up a room and decent quality screeding retains its heat, producing an even heat right across the floor.

Needless to say, if you're not putting in underfloor heating, you can just skip this step and apply the screed. Your screeding specialist will give you advice and guidance on which form of screed is best for your needs, according to your proposed use of the room area. After the pouring of the screed there'll be a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a 72 hour minimum curing time before the laying of any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds should be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and long lasting surface.

As soon as the screeding has set it can be quality checked to confirm its SR level. The test involves the use of a 2 metre long straight-edge laid down upon the floor surface and any variations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best specification and permits only 3mm of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor deviates from the straight edge by 5 millimetres or less it is considered SR2 level and is the standard for commercial and industrial floors.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish isn't needed. This specification allows for a maximium deviation of 10 millimetres.

If your screed has been laid with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be needed to perform these soundness tests. Using specialist equipment the engineer will assess the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. The screed will be subjected to a "drop hammer test" to gauge strength and flexibility in various areas. Any screeding that has point load requirements must be approved by a qualified structural engineer obeying the British Standards BS8204 regulations.

Latex Floor Screeds Enderby

It is advantageous to use a latex screeding when a level of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor. Usually coming in 2 parts, latex screeds comprise a cementitious powder and a latex liquid additive. The latex liquid additive replaces the water which would normally be used in a screed mix, and is far more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds.

This latex product is used for levelling subfloors prior to the installation of your chosen decorative surface. Suitable for substrate of asphalt, concrete, sand/cement, stone tiles and wood, this screeding gives a perfect surface for the application of adhesives which is resilient and smooth. If your sub-floor has any movement in it, this type of latex screeding will still provide a flexible, crack-free finish, on which your final floor coverings can be laid.

When installing a "floating" screed, i.e. when an unbonded screed is being laid over the top of a layer of acoustic or thermal insulation, screed depths of 50mm-65mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds aren't suitable for this purpose.
