Choosing the appropriate screeding materials and the method of installation is crucial if you want to finish up with a durable and quality finish for your floor surface.

Before deciding on a floor screeding contractor from the many operating in the Heswall area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their quotation, and also make sure you get multiple quotations.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Used in domestic flooring projects where the mix of cement and sand is okay for normal floor traffic use. Five parts sand to one part cement is the typical mixture for standard screeds. Once laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre each day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option for professionals where under floor heating is being installed in residential homes in Heswall. This is because of the improved durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the fibres within the screed. At around 1mm per day, it has a similar curing rate to standard floor screed.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is necessary this compound of latex and cement is employed to achieve SR1 quality screed flooring. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all forms of flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of just one millimetre, but still provides a strong surface to take a selection of flooring materials.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the floor as soon as possible a fast drying screed can be used. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, subject to the mix, they are generally a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are great for projects that have tight deadlines.

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

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is needed on account of building factors, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to this situation. Maker's guidelines for setting times differ across the product ranges.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

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

Any cleansing chemicals used during this process shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the final surface. During an on-site survey your Heswall screeding specialist will establish what preparations are required before any actual screeding begins.

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

A supplementary airtight barrier may be necessary if your home or business premises is in an area which is known to be susceptible to radon. An airtight membrane might be suitable in places with relatively low levels of radon, however in more extreme situations there might have to be a more sophisticated extraction and ventilation system to block any ground penetrating radon gas.

Once the floor base has been properly prepared and all DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then put on. These primers and sealers will make sure that the screed bonds perfectly to the base and help to produce a top quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, by certified screeding installers in Heswall observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before screeding is poured. Insulation panels will be positioned and the heating pipes and cables will be firmly mounted so that there is no movement whilst the screed is poured. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system will provide even warmth across the floor area.

If you aren't putting in under floor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and laid. The requirements of the room will dictate the type of screeding that is used. After the pouring of the screed there'll be a minimum 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you're able to walk on the surface, and a seventy two hours minimum drying period before any floor material installations. If you're aiming to end up with a well finished and long-lasting floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where this timescale will be longer.

You can test the SR standard of the finished screeding once it is set enough to walk on. The basic SR test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole area, if there are no disparities greater than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is comparatively unimportant the SR3 is the standard and should have a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

There might also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to perform a soundness test. The testing will make certain that your new screed surface is viable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the site survey. A "drop hammer test" is conducted at several areas on the screed and the outcomes noted. The specialist measurement and testing tools mean this can only be conducted by a fully qualified structural engineer following the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Floor Screeds Heswall

When a floor's surface needs a certain degree of flexibility, it is wise to use a latex screeding. Latex screeds come in two parts - a bottle and a bag - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cement based powder. The latex liquid part replaces the water that's used in other types of screed, meaning that it's quicker drying and more flexible.

Used for levelling sub-floors, this latex compound provides a surface for the installation of the final floor finish. Appropriate for substrate of wood, sand/cement, stone tiles, concrete and asphalt, this gives a perfect surface for the application of flooring adhesives which is also smooth and durable. If your sub-floor has any movement in it, this type of latex floor screed will still produce a crack-free, flexible finish, onto which your chosen floor coverings can be laid.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of acoustic or thermal insulation, screed thicknesses of 50 to 65 millimetres may be necessary, and latex screeds are not appropriate for this purpose.
