TYPES OF SCREED

Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a minimal thickness. Polymer screeds are available from a number of screed manufacturers and because of their different chemical compositions have distinct setting times for each product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use on top of under floor heating. The special fibres in the screed mix increase overall durability and strength whilst also protecting against thermal cracking and shrinkage. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry quickly and allow you to use the screeded area much faster. These are usually a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are used in time critical flooring projects.

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

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

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will have to fully prepare the area before proceeding with any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any grease, debris, oil and paint on the existing floor surface can affect the bonding of the screed, and should be eliminated.

Screeding Near Hoddesdon (EN11)

Any cleaning products which are used during this stage shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. It is necessary to repair any crevices or cracks in the floor surface to prevent them being visible and "travelling" up into your newly screeded floor. A site survey will allow the screeding company to identify this preparation work and tackle it before commencing to lay the screeding.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be put down to protect the screed and final flooring from moisture damage. The DPM is made from thick polythene and different layers could be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

If your property is situated in a place where radon is found a supplementary barrier layer is essential to prevent radon gas from seeping through. If radon is present in severe doses then a complete ventilation and extraction system may be installed underneath the screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from ground level.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealant. These primers and sealers will make sure the screed bonds perfectly to the floor base and help create a quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, by qualified screeding companies in Hoddesdon sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Now is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and attached firmly to insulation panels to stop any movement during screed application. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system should provide even level of warmth across the floor area.

If you aren't putting in underfloor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. Your proposed use of the room will assist your screeding company on what type of floor screed is best for your requirements. After the pouring of the screed there'll be a minimum 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you can walk over the surface, and a 72 hour minimum setting period before the laying of any flooring materials. If you're looking to wind up with a properly finished and durable floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to heavy duty and standard screeds where this timescale will be longer.

You can check the SR level of the completed screeding as soon as it's set enough to walk on. Using a two metre straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any ridges, deviations and dips in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Deviations of three millimetres or less as measured across the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and is classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a quality finish isn't required. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10 millimetres.

If you need load bearing checks, a structural engineer is required to perform the testing. Using specialist equipment the engineer will assess the screeding strength and suitability of use in a load bearing environment. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" will be conducted at several areas on the screed layer and the results documented. The specialist testing and measurement tools required mean this can only be performed by a competent structural engineer obeying the guidelines of BS8204.

Latex Screed Hoddesdon

It is better to use a latex floor screed when a degree of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor. Latex screeds normally comprise 2 parts - a cement-based powder, and a liquid latex additive. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than standard screeds, since the water that's normally used is substituted with the liquid latex.

Before the installation of the final decorative covering, this latex product is used for levelling-out subfloors. Providing a smooth, resilient surface that's ideal for the application of adhesives, this is is appropriate for use on substrate of asphalt, concrete, sand/cement, wood and stone tiles. If your sub-floor has a bit of movement in it, this type of latex floor screed will still provide a crack-free, flexible finish, upon which your final floor coverings can sit.

When a screed is being laid on top of a membrane of either thermal or acoustic insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex floor screeds are not appropriate, because in this instance (usually when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you'll likely require a screed thickness of 50mm-65mm.
