Your screeding company will also let you know if a structural engineer is necessary for your project, to evaluate load bearing, point loadings and flex strength that your screed floor might require to conform with British Standards and building regulations.

Bringing in a skilled and qualified specialist will guarantee you get the correct form of screed for the room's anticipated usage and get the optimum lifespan out of the resulting flooring. A correct mix of screed and the way it is laid is also crucial to ensure the final durability of your floor.

There are a number of screeding companies in and around Finchampstead so try to get multiple quotations for your project before choosing a company and know to what standard of finish is it for. The quote may be based on what's known as the SR, or Surface Regularity calculation.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Widely used in domestic projects where the blend of cement and sand is good for standard footfall usage. The ratios involved in standard screeds are five parts sand to one part cement. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of 1mm each day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with under floor heating systems and is the suggested option in these projects. The improved strength and flexibility provided by the special fibres in this screed mix help protect the resulting floor from thermal cracking and shrinkage. At around 1mm per day, it has an identical drying rate to standard floor screed.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum strength and durability on floors where traffic is expected to be high or specific loading of the floor base is needed.

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

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry rapidly and allow you to use the floor area much sooner. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are ideal for a wide array of projects where the swifter curing rate of three to seven millimetres is a considerable advantage.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement material which can achieve the highest standard SR1 finish. Mainly used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks on top of it. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish which is hard wearing and durable, time should be spent on fully preparing the area prior to any screed being poured. Any grease, paint, oil and debris on the original floor level can affect the bonding of the screed, and must be eradicated.

Any cleaning chemicals that are used during this process should leave no residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. It's essential to mend any cracks in the surface to stop them being mirrored and "travelling" up into your freshly screeded floor. A site survey will enable your Finchampstead screeding contractor to highlight this preparation work and complete it before commencing to pour the screeding layer.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed to shield the final flooring and screed from dampness. Different gauges of polythene sheeting might be used as a DPM and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation material.

A further airtight barrier could be required if your home is in a location that is known to be susceptible to radon gas emissions. This can be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in more serious situations a ventilation and extraction system will be installed under the screed to draw out any influx of air and gas from the ground.

Once the base has been properly prepared and any DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then put on. A primer helps with the screed bonding correctly to the base and different types exist based upon which type of screed is being used. Due to their specialist nature, only experienced screeding contractors in Finchampstead are capable of using them correctly, safely and using equipment that's made for the task.

Under floor heating can now be installed and checked before screeding is applied. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and firmly mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement during screed pouring process. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a properly installed system will produce even warmth in all areas of the floor.

Of course, if you are not installing under floor heating, you can just bypass this step and get on with applying the floor screed. Your screeding contractor will have given you advice on which screed type is suitable for your requirements, according to your intended use of the room area. After application of the screed there will be at least 24 hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a 72 hours minimum drying period for any floor covering installation. If you're hoping to end up with a well finished and long-lasting floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where the waiting period will be longer.

The SR level of your screed can be ascertained once it has hardened sufficiently to be walked on. The test involves using a 2 metre long straight-edge laid down upon the floor surface and any variations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Disparities of three millimetres or less being measured across the whole floor area shows your screed to be of the finest quality and is specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screeded surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5 millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect finish is not needed. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10 millimetres.

If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is required to conduct the testing. This test will establish the strength of the screeding and the viability for its intended use. A drop hammer test is conducted on different areas of the screed and the outcomes noted. Only certified structural engineers applying the BS8204 guidelines are permitted to carry out these testing and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.
