There are many kinds of floor screeding and selecting the correct mix and laying technique is essential to create a top quality floor that is both hard-wearing and fit for purpose.
Before choosing a floor screeding contractor from those based in the Gorseinon area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their quote, and also make certain that you get multiple price quotes.

SR2 and SR3 might be more affordable options, however the finished floor surface might have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect finish. This means that you may have to rectify any patches that could cause issues when laying your finished flooring material.

A contractor holding such accreditation demonstrates they have been assessed and trained in using these products and can offer a high standard of service in all areas of their installation.
For the screeding of floors in warehouses, restaurants, hospitals, shopping centres, schools and factories, dedicated commercial screeders in Gorseinon will be needed.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - A blend of cement and sand which is acceptable for regular residential use. The standard screed is a mixture of 5 parts sand to 1 of cement. The standard flooring screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness each day.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for heavy traffic and high load areas where maximum strength and durability is crucial.
Polymer Screeds - These provide an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Due to their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying drying times which you can verify by reading manufacturer's own product guidelines.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option for professional installers where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Gorseinon. This is because of the improved durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking offered by the special fibres within the screed. It dries out at the same rate as a standard screed of one millimetre per day.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to use the area in question as soon as possible a fast drying screed can be employed. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, subject to the mix, they are generally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are ideal for projects that have tight schedules.
Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex compound. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all types of flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of just one millimetre, but still provides a high strength surface for a selection of flooring materials.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time should be spent on fully preparing the area prior to any screed being poured. The existing floor surface should be cleaned to remove any paint, grease, debris and oil that might adversely affect the bond of the screeding.
If any cleaning products are used during this stage it's important to make sure 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 prevent them from "travelling" through a screed layer and producing imperfections on the finished surface. A reputable Gorseinon screeding contractor will pick up on these issues during the site survey and make sure all preparations are complete before pressing on with the next steps in the floor screeding process.
Before the screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed to protect the final flooring and screed from dampness. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene may be used as a DPM and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.
If your home is located in an area where radon gas is found an additional barrier layer is needed to prevent radon gas from entering. A simple air-tight membrane could be enough in areas with low emissions of radon, but in more serious situations there may have to be a more sophisticated extraction system to take away any harmful radon.
Once the base has been properly prepared and all membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. A primer assists in the screed bonding process to the base and different varieties exist based on which screed type is being applied. These substances need certified tradesmen to apply them in the correct proportions by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.
If you are installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be set out and installed. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and attached firmly to insulation panels to stop any movement in the course of the screed pouring. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in a properly installed under floor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an effective method of heating, it's a great choice for many Gorseinon renovation projects.
If you're not fitting under floor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. Your screeding company will give you advice on which form of screed is best for your needs, according to your intended use of the room area. Bear in mind that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you are able to walk over any laid surface and a minimum 3 days before any flooring materials can be laid. If you are aiming to wind up with a properly finished and long-lasting floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to heavy duty and standard screeds where this timescale will be increased.
As soon as the screeding has set it can be quality checked to establish the SR standard. The test involves the use of a 2 metre long straight-edge laid down upon the floor surface and any variations from true are calculated.
- SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any deviations greater than three millimetres from the straight-edge, you've got a top specification SR1 standard surface.
- SR2 - SR2 is for standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
- SR3 - If the deviation is 10mm or less the quality of the screeding is categorised as SR3 and is suitable for garage and utility areas.
If your screeding has been laid with particular loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be needed to carry out the assessment. Using specialised equipment the engineer will assess the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. The screed could be subjected to a drop hammer test to determine strength and flexibility in various areas. Any screed floor that has load bearing requirements must be sanctioned by a certified structural engineer heeding the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.
