Floor Screeding Gnosall Staffordshire (ST20)

It may be necessary, according to the proposed use of the room, for a structural engineering survey to conform to building regulations on flex strength, load requirements and point loadings of the screed floor.

Bringing in a qualified and highly trained specialist will ensure you get the right sort of screed for the room's anticipated purpose and get the maximum lifespan out of the resulting flooring. Selecting the appropriate screeding materials and the best installation technique is crucial if you want to end up with a durable and quality finish for your floor.

Before selecting a screeding contractor from those operating in the Gnosall area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their price quote, and also make certain you get multiple quotes. The price quote might be based on what is known as the Surface Regularity, or SR number. SR2 and SR3 could be more affordable options, however the finished floor surface could have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect quality of finish. An SR2 or SR3 standard may mean there will be ridges or flat spots that could cause problems when putting down your final flooring materials.

British Standards BS8204 lays down the regulations and guidelines that all Gnosall screeding contractors are required to follow, and if working with specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc), they ought to be accredited by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. The testing and training of a screeding company by such manufacturers is highlighted through the accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any project involving their materials.

Gnosall commercial screeders will be involved in screeding floors in shopping centres, hospitals, schools, hotels, warehouses and factories.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Used in residential flooring projects where the blend of sand and cement is acceptable for standard footfall usage. The ratios involved in standard screeds are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. This 5 to 1 ratio standard flooring screed will dry out at a rate of just 1mm per day after applying.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to move forward urgently with the flooring on account of time limitations, this screed dries much quicker than standard flooring screeds. They are typically a fibre reinforced kind of screed which can dry out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are used in time-sensitive projects.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement formula which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be laid to a depth of just 1mm, but will still provide a strong surface to take a wide range of flooring finishes.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use over the top of under floor heating. The increased strength and flexibility provided by the fibres in the screed mix help protect the floor from thermal cracking and shrinkage. At roughly one millimetre per day, it has the same setting rate to standard floor screed.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is necessary on account of building requirements, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength resolution to this problem. Manufacturer's guidelines for setting times are different across the product ranges.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Preparation is crucial for a high quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. Any debris, grease, paint and oil on the existing floor surface can affect the bonding of the screed, and must be eliminated.

Screeding Near Gnosall (ST20)

If any products were used during this stage it is vital to ensure that no residues of soaps or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" through the screed layer and causing deviations on the final floor surface. An experienced Gnosall screeding installer will address these issues during a site survey and ensure that all preparations are complete before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed to protect the screed and final flooring from moisture. The damp proof membrane is made from thick polythene and different layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

A supplementary air-tight barrier may be needed if your house is in an area that is regarded as prone to radon gas emissions. An air-tight membrane might be suitable in places with relatively low emissions of radon, however in more extreme cases there may need to be a more complicated extraction and ventilation system to take away any ground penetrating radon gas.

Once the base has been properly prepared and any DPMs installed, a primer or sealer is then applied. Primers help the bonding process and are specialist applications matched to the kind of screed that is being applied. Equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by experienced screeding contractors in Gnosall following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before the screed is applied. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and attached firmly to insulation panels to stop potential movement in the course of the screed application. When properly installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and good quality screed will retain its heat, producing an even heat across the floor.

The screed can now be prepared on site and applied to the floor base. Your proposed use of the room will help the screeding specialist on what kind of screed is ideal for your requirements. After application of the screed there's a minimum 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you're able to walk on the surface, and a 72 hrs minimum setting period for the laying of any floor coverings. This time period is longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's guidelines must be followed to create the optimal finish and durability of the floor.

As soon as the screed has solidified it can be checked for quality to establish its SR standard. Through the use of a 2 mtr straight-edge the surface is examined for any deviations, dips and ridges in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole screed area, if there aren't any deviations of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you've got a top specification SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole screed.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the finish is fairly immaterial the SR3 is the standard and has a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If your screed has been laid with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be necessary to carry out these soundness tests. The testing will ensure your new screeding is viable for the load bearing requirements set down in the site survey. This can include a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only fully qualified structural engineers applying the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to perform these tests and sign off on the structural safety of the screeding.

Latex Floor Screed Gnosall

When the nature of your floor's surface means that a degree of flexibility is needed, it may be advantageous to apply a latex self-levelling screed, as opposed to one with a rigid finish. Latex screeds come in 2 parts - a bottle and a bag - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cement powder. The latex liquid additive replaces the water that is used in standard screeds, making it quicker drying and more flexible.

This latex screed product is used to level a subfloor prior to the final decorative surface being installed. Giving a resilient, smooth surface that is perfect for the application of adhesives, this is is appropriate for use on substrate of asphalt, concrete, sand/cement, wood and stone tiles. Even if there is movement in your subfloor, this type of floor screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish.

With "floating" screeds, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid over a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, latex flooring screeds will not be a suitable choice. Floating screeds with a depth of 50-75mm are normally used over underfloor heating. (Tags: Latex Floor Screed Gnosall, Latex Screeds Gnosall, Latex Screed Gnosall, Latex Screeding Gnosall).
