TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A combination of cement and sand which is acceptable for basic domestic use. This mixture comprises a five to one ratio of sand to cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of one millimetre each day.

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

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to progress urgently with the work owing to time constraints, this screed dries more speedily than standard flooring screeds. These are generally a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are used in time-sensitive projects.

Screeding Quotes Hemsworth West Yorkshire

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this mix of of cement and latex is employed to produce SR1 level screeding. Typically used to improve a damaged floor or poor substrate level in order to lay a brand new flooring surface, such as tiles on top of it. Even with a depth of one millimetre, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is essential. Because of their different chemical compositions, polymer screeds have varying curing times which can be verified by reading manufacturer's guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with underfloor heating and is the advised option in these projects. The greater strength and flexibility provided by the fibres in the screed help protect the resulting floor from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. At roughly one millimetre per day, it has the same drying rate to standard floor screed.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time must be devoted to preparing the area before any screed is poured. Any paint, debris, grease and oil on the original floor surface can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eradicated.

If any products were used in this process it is crucial to make certain that no residues of soaps or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. It is vital to fix any cracks in the base to prevent them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into the newly screeded floor. A site survey will enable your Hemsworth screeding installer to take note of these preparation areas and finish them before starting to apply the screed layer.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed once the preparation work has been completed to stop ground moisture affecting the screeding and floor materials. The DPM is made out of thick polythene and various layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

An additional air-tight barrier could be necessary if your building is in an area that's known to be susceptible to radon. An airtight membrane may be enough in locations with low emissions of radon, but in more serious situations there might have to be a more sophisticated ventilation and extraction system to block any ground penetrating radon.

The final step of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealant. These primers and sealers will ensure that the screed bonds perfectly to the floor base and help to accomplish a good quality finished floor. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by certified screeding contractors in Hemsworth following the manufacturer's guidelines.

If you're installing under floor heating, now is the time that it will need to be laid out and installed. The underfloor heating system will be carefully positioned and attached firmly to insulation panels to prevent potential movement during screed pouring process. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system will give an even level of warmth across the floor area.

If you are not fitting underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared in situ and poured. The specific requirements of the room will dictate the form of screeding that is used. After the pouring of the screed there's at least twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk over the surface, and a 72 hours minimum curing period before the laying of any floor coverings. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds must be followed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with an even and stable floor surface.

As soon as the screed has hardened it can be quality checked to determine the SR standard. The test involves the use of a 2m straight edge laid down upon the floor surface and any deviations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less being measured over the whole floor area shows your screeding to be of the best quality and specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect finish isn't required. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10mm.

It might also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to perform a soundness test. The testing will make certain that your newly laid screeded surface is viable for the load point requirements laid out in the site survey. A drop hammer test is conducted on various areas of the screed and the outcomes noted. The specialist measurement and testing tools involved mean that this can only be conducted by a trained structural engineer observing the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Screed

When a floor's surface needs a level of flexibility, it might be wise to use a latex self-levelling floor screed. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cemetitious powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex component. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds, since the water which is normally used is substituted with the liquid latex.

Before the installation of the final decorative surface, this latex compound is used for levelling-out subfloors. Suitable for subfloors of sand/cement, concrete, wood, asphalt and quarry tiles, this screeding gives the ideal surface for the application of adhesives that's durable and smooth. Even if there's movement on your subfloor, this type of latex screeding will produce a crack-free, flexible finish.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, thicknesses of 50 to 65 millimetres may be needed, and latex flooring screeds aren't suitable for this purpose.

Granolithic Screeding Hemsworth

Granolithic screeding is a popular flooring material that is widely used in heavy-duty environments because of its strength and durability. It's made from a mixture of aggregate, sand, cement, and sometimes pigments, which are combined to make a mortar-like mixture. The mixture is poured onto the floor and then smoothed to an even, level surface.

The resulting flooring is easy to clean, hard-wearing and slip-resistant, making it ideal for use in areas with high foot traffic, such as shopping centres, factories and schools.

Granolithic screeding is typically applied over a concrete sub-base, and the surface is often treated with a curing compound to ensure it sets correctly. Once cured, it creates a seamless floor with a hard, smooth surface that is resistant to wear. It's also resistant to chemicals and water, which makes it perfect for use in environments where there's a chance of spills or exposure to hazardous materials.... READ MORE.
