Your screeding specialist will also tell you if a structural engineer is needed for your undertaking, in order to evaluate load requirements, flex strength and point loadings that your flooring may need to conform with current building regulations and British Standards.

The training and skills that a qualified screeding technician brings to your project should guarantee a high quality result and help in extending the lifespan of your floor or floors. The correct blend of screed and the way it is laid is also important to guarantee the final quality of your floor.

There are several screeding specialists in the Exmouth area so see if you can get multiple estimates for your project before picking a company and know to what standard of finish it's for. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the number to look for when getting a quotation from your Exmouth screeding contractor. Each of the three SR levels provide different standards of finish, with SR1 being the highest, with the least amount of deviation over the surface area. Any errors or imperfections in the screeding (as might occur with SR2 or SR3) can cause issues with laying flooring due to flat spots, ridges, indentations in the surface.

The guidelines and regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by all Exmouth floor screeding companies and they should also be accredited by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc.) to demonstrate their safe working practices and competence. The assessment and training of a screeding company by such manufacturers is emphasised through the accreditation scheme, and guarantees safe working practices and reliability on any screeding project which involves their materials.

For larger floor screeding projects in shops, factories, warehouses, hospitals, schools and restaurants, skilled commercial screeders in Exmouth will be needed.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A blend of cement and sand which is okay for regular residential usage. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. This five to one ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of just 1mm per day after applying.

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

Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Manufacturer's guidelines for drying times differ across the product ranges.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to progress urgently with the flooring because of time constraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard screeds. They are usually a fibre reinforced type of screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are used in time-sensitive flooring projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional installers for use with under floor heating systems. This is because of the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the fibres within the screed. The screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A cement and latex formula which can achieve the highest standard SR1 finish. It is largely used to produce a smooth, level floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. Even with a thickness of one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Good preparation is vital for a quality finished screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. Any grease, oil, paint and debris on the existing floor surface can affect the bonding of the screed, and should be eradicated.

Screeding Near Exmouth (EX8)

If cleaning products were used it is essential to remove any residues of soap etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. At this point any cracks need to be mended as these can travel up through your newly laid screed and be visible in the finished surface. An on-site survey will allow the screeding installer to highlight this preparation work and complete it before beginning to apply the screed layer.

Before the screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be put down to protect the screed and final flooring from moisture damage. The damp proof membrane is made out of thick polythene sheeting and various layers could be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screeding.

If your home is located in an area where radon is present an additional barrier layer is required to prevent radon gas from entering. A simple air-tight membrane may be suitable in areas with low radon emissions, however in more serious cases there might have to be a more complex extraction system to take away any ground penetrating radon.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealant. A primer assists in the screed bonding process to the base and membranes and different types exist according to which screed type is being applied. These materials require certified contractors to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.

If you're installing under floor heating, now is the time that it will need to be laid out and installed. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and firmly mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement in the course of the screed installation process. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system will provide even level of warmth across the floor area.

Needless to say, if you are not installing underfloor heating, you can just ignore this step and apply the floor screed. Your screeding specialist will give you guidance and advice on which type of screed is suitable for your requirements, according to your intended use of the room area. Don't forget that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk over any screeded surface and at least three days before any flooring materials can be applied. This timescale is longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's instructions must be followed to achieve the optimal finish and durability of the floor.

Once the screeding has hardened it can be quality checked to establish the SR level. Using a 2m straight-edge the surface is examined for any dips, ridges and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Over the entire screed area, if there are no deviations greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you've got a top level SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - If the screed has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5mm or less it is considered SR2 quality and is the standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is fairly unimportant the SR3 is the standard and should have a deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is necessary to carry out the testing. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will verify the screeded surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. This should include what's known as a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. Only trained structural engineers respecting the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to perform these tests and sign off on the structural safety of screed flooring.

Latex Screeds Exmouth

It is advantageous to use a latex self-levelling screed when a certain degree of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cemetitious powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex mixture. The liquid latex part actually replaces the water which would typically be used in a screed mix, and is much more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed.

Before the installation of your chosen decorative covering, this latex compound is used for levelling-out sub-floors. Appropriate for sub-floors of concrete, asphalt, wood, sand/cement and stone tiles, this gives a perfect surface for the application of flooring adhesives that's smooth and resilient. This latex screed will provide a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there's movement in your sub-floor.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of acoustic or thermal insulation, screed depths of 50-75mm may be required, and latex screeds aren't appropriate for this purpose.
