British Standards BS8204 lays out the guidelines and regulations that all Frimley screeding contractors are required to follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc), they must be certified by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use.

Frimley commercial screeders could be involved in screeding floors in hospitals, shops, schools, factories, warehouses and hotels.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A blend of sand and cement which is okay for everyday residential use. The ratios involved are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. The standard flooring screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries at a quicker rate and allows you to use the screeded area much sooner. These are typically a fibre reinforced type of screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are employed in time critical flooring projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured option where underfloor heating is being installed in residential properties in Frimley. The fibres in the screed mix improve it's durability and strength whilst also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. At around one millimetre per day, it has an identical curing rate to standard screed.

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

Screeding Quotes Frimley Surrey

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex material. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all flooring materials to be laid. They can be as little as 1mm thick, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Polymer screeds are available from a number of manufacturers and on account of their diverse chemical compositions have distinct curing times for each individual product.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will need to fully prepare all areas prior to any other work in order to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The existing floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eradicate any debris, grease, paint and oil which might adversely affect the adhesion of the screeding.

Screeding Near Frimley (GU16)

Any cleansing products used during this phase shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. At this stage any cracks need to be repaired because these can easily travel up through your newly laid screed and be reflected in the completed surface. An on-site survey will allow your Frimley screeding installer to highlight these preparation areas and finish them before commencing to pour the screeding layer.

Before the screeding can be poured a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be put down to protect the final flooring and screed from moisture damage. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene could be used as a DPM and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation material.

If your home is situated in a place where radon is found an additional barrier layer is essential to prevent radon gas from seeping through. If radon occurs in severe doses then a complete extraction and ventilation system might be needed under the layer of screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from the ground.

Once these steps have been taken the screeding company will put on a primer or sealant to the prepared base. Sealers and primers help the bonding process and are special applications specifically designed for the kind of screed that's being applied. Because of their special nature, only trained screeders in Frimley should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and through the use of bespoke equipment for the task.

If required, this is the time that underfloor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. Insulation panels will be positioned and the wires and heating pipes will be securely attached so there's no movement whilst the screed is poured. When expertly installed an under floor heating system is an efficient way to warm a room and good quality screed retains its heat, creating an even level of warmth across the floor surface.

The screeding can now be prepared on site and spread onto the floor base. The particular requirements of the room will determine the kind of screeding that's used. After the pouring of the screed there will be at least twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you're able to walk upon the surface, and a seventy two hours minimum curing time before any floor covering installations. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds must be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even surface.

The SR level of your screed can be verified once it's hardened enough to be stepped onto. Using a 2 metre straight-edge the surface is checked for any dips, ridges and deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest standard and allows only 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5 millimetres across the entire floor surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a quality finish is not required. This level allows for a maximium deviation of 10mm.

If your screed has been laid with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be necessary to conduct these soundness tests. Using specialised equipment the engineer will ascertain the screed strength and suitability of use in a load bearing setting. The screeding will be subjected to a drop hammer test to determine flexibility and strength at distinct points. Only trained structural engineers respecting the BS8204 regulations are allowed to carry out these testing and sign off on the structural integrity of screed flooring.

Latex Screeds Frimley

When the nature of your floor's surface means that a certain degree of flexibility is required, it will be an advantage to use a latex self-levelling floor screed, as opposed to one with a rigid finish. Latex floor screeds come in two parts - a bag and a bottle - with the bottle containing latex liquid and the bag containing a cemetitious powder. The latex liquid additive replaces the water that is used in standard screeds, meaning that it is quicker drying and more flexible.

Before the installation of your chosen decorative surface, this latex product is used for levelling-out subfloors. Appropriate for substrate of asphalt, wood, concrete, sand/cement and stone tiles, this screeding gives the ideal surface for the application of flooring adhesives that's smooth and resilient. This type of latex screeding will produce a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there's movement in your subfloor.

When an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex flooring screeds aren't suitable, because in this instance (normally when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you will likely require a thickness of 50 to 75 millimetres.
