A professional screeding contractor will also let you know if a structural engineer is necessary for your undertaking, in order to evaluate load bearing, point loadings and flex strength that your flooring might require to conform with building regulations and British Standards.

Working with a skilled and qualified specialist will ensure that you get the right form of screed for the room's proposed usage and get the optimum lifespan out of the resulting floor. The correct blend of screed and the way it is laid is also vital to guarantee the final intergrity of your floor surface.

Before picking out a floor screeding contractor from any operating in the Hebden Bridge area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quotation, and also make sure you get two or three quotes. The price quote might be based on what's known as the SR, or Surface Regularity calculation. SR2 and SR3 may be less expensive options, although the finished floor surface could have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect finish. An SR2 or SR3 level may mean there will be flat spots or ridges that might cause problems when installing your final flooring surface (wood, tile, carpet etc).

The rules and regulations set out in in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by all Hebden Bridge floor screeding companies and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc.) to prove their safe working practices and competence.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Used in domestic projects where the combination of cement and sand is ideal for regular floor traffic usage. The ratios involved in standard screeds are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. After laying a standard screed sets at a rate of 1mm/day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use over the top of under floor heating. The increased flex and strength provided by the fibres within the screed help protect the resulting floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. At around one millimetre per day, it has a similar drying rate to standard floor screed.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries rapidly and allows you to use the screeded area much sooner. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm, subject to the mixture, they are normally a fibre reinforced screed and are great for flooring projects that have tight schedules.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is necessary on account of construction requirements, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength solution to the problem. Polymer screeds are available from a number of screed manufacturers and due to their different chemical compositions have specific drying times for each individual product.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for heavy traffic and high load areas where maximum strength and durability is essential.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is required this compound of latex and cement is used to achieve SR1 quality floor screeding. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all types of flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of just 1mm, but still provides a strong surface for a selection of flooring finishes.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

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

Screeding Near Hebden Bridge (HX7)

If cleansing products have been used it is essential to remove any traces of soap etc, and leave the surface to dry naturally. It is necessary to repair any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to avoid them being reflected and "travelling" upwards into your freshly screeded floor. A reputable Hebden Bridge screeding specialist will pick up on these problems during the on-site survey and make certain all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next stages of the screeding process.

To shield the screeding layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be laid. There could be two or three layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon gas then an additional barrier is essential to stop this harmful gas from entering from the ground. If radon occurs in large amounts then a complete ventilation system may be installed under the screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from the ground.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeders will put on a primer or sealant to the prepared floor base. Primers and sealers help with the bonding process and are special applications matched to the sort of screed that is being used. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by professional screeding companies in Hebden Bridge following the manufacturer's guidelines.

If you are going to be installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be correctly laid out and installed. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and secured firmly to insulation panels to prevent potential movement during screed application. When professionally installed an under floor heating system is an excellent way to warm a room and high quality screeding will retain its heat, creating an even heat across the floor surface.

If you aren't fitting underfloor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and poured. Your intended use of the room will help your screeding company on which form of floor screed is ideal for your needs. Be aware that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any laid surfaces and a minimum seventy two hours before any flooring can be laid. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds must be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide an even and stable floor surface.

You can test the SR standard of the completed screed as soon as it is set enough for walking on. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of three millimetres or less being measured over the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the finest quality and is classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screed deviates from the straight edge by 5 millimetres or less it is considered SR2 quality and is the standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish isn't needed. This classification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of ten millimetres.

It may also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. This test will establish the strength of the screeding and the viability for its proposed use. The screed layer could be subjected to a drop hammer test to assess flexibility and strength at distinct points. Only qualified structural engineers observing the British Standards BS8204 regulations are allowed to perform these tests and sign off on the structural integrity of screed flooring.

Latex Screeds

It is advantageous to use a latex screeding when a certain degree of flexibility is required in a floor's surface. Typically coming in 2 parts, latex screeds comprise a cementitious powder and a latex liquid mixture. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than standard screeds, since the water that's normally used is substituted for the latex liquid.

Prior to the laying of your chosen decorative surface, this latex product is used for levelling-out subfloors. Suitable for substrate of concrete, wood, sand/cement, quarry tiles and asphalt, this screed gives the ideal surface for the application of flooring adhesives which is smooth and durable. This type of floor screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there's movement in your sub-floor.

When using a "floating" screed, i.e. when screeding is being laid on the top of underfloor heating, thicknesses of 50 to 75 millimetres may be required, and latex floor screeds aren't appropriate in this instance.

Coloured Floor Screeds

Coloured screeds refer to a type of flooring material that is mostly used in commercial or industrial settings. A unique and distinctive finish is created by combining coloured resins, aggregates, and sealers to form these screeds. Areas with heavy footfall or machinery commonly utilise them as they provide a slip-resistant, long-lasting and durable surface.

Multi-coloured screeds offer customisation options to match the brand of a business or achieve a particular aesthetic in a space. Their easy-to-clean and maintain properties make them a preferred option for facilities that require a high level of hygiene. Overall, the practicality and versatility of multi-coloured screeds make them a flooring solution that can provide both function and style to any commercial or industrial space.
