TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A mix of sand and cement which is acceptable for regular residential use. The standard screed is a mix of 5 parts sand to one of cement. After being laid a standard screed mix sets at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are expected to be high or heavy loading of the floor is required, heavy duty screeds allow for maximum strength and durability.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries quickly and allows you to use the floor area much sooner. These are usually a fibre reinforced type of screed which can dry at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are employed in time-sensitive projects.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced thickness is required. Due to their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying curing times which can be verified by studying manufacturer's own product guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use on top of underfloor heating. The fibres in this screed mix enhance overall strength and durability while also safeguarding against thermal cracking and shrinkage. The screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is required this formula of cement and latex is used to create SR1 quality screed flooring. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all types of flooring materials to be laid. 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

To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time should be spent on preparing the area before any screeding material is laid. Any paint, debris, oil and grease on the existing floor level can affect the bonding of the screed, and must be eliminated.

If any products were used in this process it is crucial to make sure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. It's necessary to repair any crevices or cracks in the surface to stop them being visible and "travelling" upwards into your freshly screeded floor. An on-site survey will enable the screeding installer to highlight this preparation work and complete it before commencing to pour the screeding layer.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be put down after the preparation work has been completed to stop ground moisture affecting the screeding and floor materials. There may be 2 or 3 layers of different thickness polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

An additional airtight barrier may be required if your home or business premises is in a location which is regarded as prone to radon gas emissions. If radon is present in large amounts then a full ventilation system might be needed under the screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from ground level.

Once the floor base has been prepared and all membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. These primers and sealers will ensure the screed bonds effectively to the floor base and help to produce a high quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by experienced screeding installers in Fawley following the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before the screeding can be laid, any underfloor heating will now be installed. The heating pipes and wires are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure they're held in the correct position. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system should give an even level of warmth in all areas of the floor.

If you aren't putting in underfloor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. Your proposed use of the room will help the screeding company on which form of screed is perfect for your requirements. Remember that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you are able to walk on any screeded surfaces and at least seventy two hours before any flooring materials can be applied. If you're laying heavy duty or standard screeds the curing time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed in order to get the best possible finish for your floor.

The SR standard of your screeding can be verified once it has solidified sufficiently to be stepped onto. Through the use of a 2m straight-edge the surface is checked for any ridges, dips and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there are no deviations of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the entire screeded floor.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is ten millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is classed as SR3 and is highly suitable for utility and garage areas.

If your screeding has been installed with particular loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be needed to carry out tests. The assessment will ensure your new screed surface is viable for the load bearing requirements set down in the site survey. This should include what's known as a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. The precise testing and measurement tools mean this can only be conducted by a qualified structural engineer observing the guidelines of BS8204.

Latex Floor Screed Fawley

When a certain amount of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface you might find that using a latex floor screed will be advantageous. Latex floor screed comes in 2 parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cemetitious powder, and the bottle containing a liquid latex. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the liquid latex, meaning that it is quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

Before the laying of the final decorative covering, this latex compound is used for levelling sub-floors. This is appropriate for use on sub-floors of concrete, wood, sand/cement, quarry tiles and asphalt, to give a durable, smooth surface which is perfect for the application of adhesives. Even if there happens to be a bit of movement in your subfloor, this type of latex screeding will provide a flexible, crack-free finish.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid over the top of a layer of acoustic or thermal insulation, screed thicknesses of 50-75mm may be needed, and latex floor screeds aren't suited to this purpose.
