It might be a requirement, depending on the proposed use of the area in question, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform with building regulations on flex strength, load bearing and point loadings of the screed floor.

The skills and training that a certified screeding specialist brings to your project should guarantee a high quality result and help to lengthen the lifespan of your floor or floors. Selecting the appropriate screeding materials and the best installation technique is vital if you want to end up with a quality and durable finish for your floor.

Before picking out a floor screeding specialist from the many operating in the Highbridge area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their price quote, and also ensure you get multiple quotes from different screeders. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the figure to look for when getting an estimate from your Highbridge screeding contractor. Each of the 3 SR levels provide different levels of finish, with SR1 offering the best, with the least amount of deviation over the surface area. An SR2 or SR3 level could mean there will be flat spots or ridges that may cause issues when laying your final flooring materials.

British Standards BS8204 lays down the guidelines and regulations that all Highbridge screeding companies must follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc), they must be accredited by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. This accreditation scheme demonstrates a contractor's performance and training in the use of a manufacturer's screeding merchandise.

Commercial screeders in Highbridge will usually tackle larger screeding projects in schools, warehouses, boutiques, shops, hospitals and factories.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is acceptable for normal domestic use and is a mix of sand and cement. This mixture uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. This 5:1 ratio standard flooring screed will dry out at a rate of just one millimetre per day after applying.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option where under floor heating is being installed in residential properties in Highbridge. This is because of the increased strength and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking offered by the fibres within the screed. At around 1mm per day, it has a similar drying rate to standard floor screed.

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

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to use the floor at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed can be utilised. The vast majority of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are suitable for a whole host of flooring projects where the quicker curing rate of 3-7mm is a welcome advantage.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum durability and strength on floors where traffic is expected to be high or specific loading of the floor base is needed.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex solution which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. It is primarily used to provide a smooth, clean floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. Even with a depth of one millimetre, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength screed for a variety of uses.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Preparation is essential for a top quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The original floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eradicate any oil, paint, grease and debris which might affect the bond of the screeding.

Screeding Near Highbridge (TA9)

If cleansing products have been used it is essential to remove any residues of soap or detergent, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. It is essential to mend any crevices or cracks in the base to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" up into your newly screeded floor. A site survey will enable your Highbridge screeding contractor to pinpoint these preparation areas and finish them before starting to pour the screeding layer.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be laid. The damp proof membrane is made of thick polythene and various layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screeding.

If your home is situated in an area where radon is present an additional barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from entering. This could be just a simple airtight membrane, or in severe cases a ventilation system will need to be installed under the floor screed to take away any inflow of air and gas from the ground.

Once the base has been properly prepared and all DPMs installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. A primer assists in the screed to successfully bond to the base and different types exist depending on which screed type is being used. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, by qualified screeding installers in Highbridge sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and tested before screeding is applied. The heating pipes and cabling are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure they are held in the correct position. When properly installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm up a room and good quality screeding retains its heat, producing an even heat right across the floor surface.

If you aren't putting in underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared in situ and poured. Your proposed use of the room will help the screeding specialist on what sort of screed is best for your requirements. Bear in mind that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you are able to walk on any laid surfaces and at least three days before any floor coverings can be applied. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds should be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and even surface.

The SR standard of your screeding can be checked once it's hardened enough to be walked upon. The basic SR test uses a two metre straight edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3mm or less as measured over the entire floor area shows your screeding to be of the best quality and classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is ten millimetres or less the screeding quality is specified as SR3 and is highly suitable for garage and utility areas.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is required to conduct the testing. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will evaluate the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. This should include what is known as a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Only trained structural engineers observing the British Standards BS8204 regulations are permitted to carry out these tests and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.
