The screeding contractor will also let you know if a structural engineer is required for your project, to check on flex strength, point loadings and load bearing that your screed floor might need to conform with British Standards and building regulations.

Qualified and skilled tradesmen are essential to a successful outcome and will extend your floor's lifespan by making use of the right kind of screed for the proposed purpose of your room. There are many types of screed and picking the correct mix and laying process is vital if you are to create a high quality floor that's fit for purpose and hard-wearing.

Make sure that you get two or three price quotes for your Henley-on-Thames floor screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting a quote. The price quote may be based on what's known as the SR, or Surface Regularity calculation.

For larger floor screeding projects in shopping centres, factories, restaurants, schools, hospitals and warehouses, specialist commercial screeders in Henley-on-Thames will be needed.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is okay for regular residential usage and is a combination of cement and sand. The standard screed is a mixture of 5 parts sand to 1 of cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of 1mm per day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this mixture of cement and latex is used to produce SR1 level screeding. Mainly used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level so as to lay a brand new flooring surface, such as tiles over it. The liquid screed can be poured to a depth of only one millimetre, but will still provide a strong surface to take a wide variety of flooring materials.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to use the floor as quickly as possible a fast drying screed can be employed. These are typically a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are used in time dependent flooring projects.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use over the top of underfloor heating. The greater flexibility and strength provided by the fibres in the screed help protect the resulting floor from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. The screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum strength and durability on floors where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor is required.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that is durable and hard wearing, time must be spent on preparing the area prior to any screed being poured. Any grease, paint, oil and debris on the existing floor surface can affect the bonding of the screed, and must be eliminated.

Screeding Near Henley-on-Thames (RG9)

If cleaning products have been used it is important to remove any remnants of soap or detergent, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. It is necessary to mend any cracks or crevices in the base to avoid them being reflected and "travelling" upwards into your freshly screeded floor. An experienced Henley-on-Thames screeding installer will pick up on these problems during a on-site survey and ensure that all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next stages of the floor screeding process.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be applied once the preparation work has been concluded to stop ground moisture getting into the flooring materials and screed. There may be two or three layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If the area is susceptible to radon then an additional barrier is necessary to stop the gas from entering via the ground. This could be just a simple airtight membrane, or in more serious instances a ventilation and extraction system is installed under the floor screed to extract any inflow of air and gas from ground level.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeding company will put on a sealant or primer to the prepared floor base. A primer assists in the screed to bond to the base and membranes and different types exist according to which kind of screed is being applied. Owing to their specialist nature, only skilled screeders in Henley-on-Thames should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and through the use of equipment that's made for the task.

Before the screeding can be poured, any underfloor heating will now set out and installed. Insulation panels will be put in position and the wires and heating pipes will be securely mounted so that there is no movement while the screed is being applied. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system should give an even warmth all over the floor.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared on site and poured onto the floor surface. Your proposed use of the room will assist your screeding specialist on what sort of screed is perfect for your requirements. Bear in mind that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk on any screeded surface and a minimum 3 days before any flooring materials can be laid. If you are laying heavy duty or standard screeds the setting time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed so as to get the best finish to your floor.

You can test the SR level of the completed screeding once it's set enough for walking on. Through the use of a 2 metre straight-edge the surface is examined for any ridges, dips and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Disparities of three millimetres or less being measured across the entire floor area shows your screeding to be of the best quality and is specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is categorised as SR3 and is highly suitable for utility and garage areas.

If you require load bearing checks, a structural engineer is required to perform the testing. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will assess the screed surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. This can include a drop hammer test which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Only qualified structural engineers observing the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are allowed to conduct these testing and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.

Latex Screeding Henley-on-Thames

When a bit of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor you might find that the use of a latex screed will be advantageous. Latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cement based smoothing compound, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex. The latex liquid solution replaces the water which is used in normal screeds, making it more flexible and quicker drying.

Used in the levelling of sub-floors, this latex compound creates a surface for the laying of the final floor finishes. This is suitable for use on substrate of concrete, asphalt, wood, quarry tiles and sand/cement, to give a smooth, durable surface that is ideal for the application of adhesives. Even when there is a bit of movement on your subfloor, this type of floor screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish.

With a "floating" screed, for instance when a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of acoustic or thermal insulation, latex floor screeds won't be suitable. Floating screeds with a thickness of 50 to 65 millimetres are generally used over underfloor heating.
