Floor Screeding Hucknall Nottinghamshire (NG15)

It may be a requirement, depending on the intended use of the area, for a structural engineering survey to conform with building regulations on point loadings, load bearing and flex strength of the screed floor.

The training and skills that a qualified screeding specialist brings to your project will guarantee a high quality outcome and help to lengthen the life of your floor. There are many types of screed and picking the right mix and installation technique is essential to create a high quality floor that's hard-wearing and fit for purpose.

Before selecting a floor screeding contractor from the many operating in the Hucknall area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their estimate, and also make sure that you get multiple estimates. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the figure to look for when getting a quote from Hucknall screeding contractors. SR2 and SR3 might be more affordable options, although the floor screeding finish may have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect quality of finish. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there are flat spots or ridges that might cause problems when laying your final flooring surface (tile, carpet, wood etc).

All Hucknall screeding contractors must comply with British Standards (BS8204) and should have accreditation from the manufacturers of specialised screeding materials and equipment, for instance Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete.

For larger screeding projects in shopping centres, schools, factories, salons, warehouses and hospitals, skilled commercial screeders in Hucknall will be needed.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is ideal for regular domestic usage and is a mixture of cement and sand. The standard screed is a mix of 5 parts sand to 1 of cement. Once laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre per day.

Polymer Screeds - These provide an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Manufacturer's guidelines for curing times differ across the various product ranges.

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

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to use the area in question as quickly as possible a fast drying screed can be used. They're normally a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are used in time dependent flooring projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The first choice where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic properties in Hucknall. The special fibres in this screed mix enhance it's durability and strength whilst also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is necessary this mixture of cement and latex is employed to produce SR1 quality floor screeding. This self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all forms of flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be laid to a depth of only 1mm, but will still provide a strong surface for a wide variety of flooring finishes.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To make sure the screeding is of a high quality finish which is durable and hard wearing, time should be devoted to preparing the area prior to any screeding material being poured. The original floor surface should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any grease, debris, oil and paint which might affect the bond of the screeding.

Screeding Near Hucknall (NG15)

If cleaning products were used it is essential to remove any remnants of soap or detergent, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. At this point cracks should be mended since these can easily travel up through your newly laid screed and be reflected in the completed surface. An on-site survey will allow your Hucknall screeding contractor to take note of this preparation work and finish it before starting to pour the screeding layer.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be put down once the preparation work has been completed to prevent ground dampness getting into the screed and floor materials. There could be two or three layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon then one additional barrier is required to stop the gas from entering via the ground. This can be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in more serious instances an extraction and ventilation system is installed underneath the screed to extract any influx of radon gas from the ground.

The final phase of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a sealant or primer. A primer helps with the screed to bond successfully to the base surface and different types exist depending on which screed type is being used. Devices such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, by experienced screeding contractors in Hucknall following the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before any screed can be poured, any underfloor heating will now be installed. Insulation panels can be put in place and the heating pipes and cabling will be securely attached so there's no movement while the screed is applied. When skillfully installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm a room and high quality screeding retains its heat, creating an even heat across the floor surface.

Obviously, if you are not fitting under floor heating, you can ignore this stage and get on with applying the floor screed. Your screeding company will have given you advice and guidance on which screed type is best for your needs, in line with your intended use of the room area. Remember that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you're able to walk over any laid surface and a minimum three days before any flooring materials can be fitted. This timescale is increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines must be followed to achieve the optimal finish and durability of the floor.

As soon as the screeding has set it can be checked for quality to establish the SR standard. Through the use of a two metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any dips, deviations and ridges in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Over the whole screed area, if there aren't any disparities of more than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - If the floor deviates from the straight edge by 5mm or less it is considered SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10mm or less the quality of the screeding is classified as SR3 and is the standard required for garage and utility areas.

There might also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. This test will determine the overall strength of the screed and the suitability for its proposed use. The screed should be given a "drop hammer test" to gauge strength and flexibility in different areas. The specialist testing and measurement tools mean that this can only be carried out by a qualified structural engineer respecting the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Screeds Hucknall

When a floor's surface needs a certain degree of flexibility, it might be wise to use a latex floor screed. Normally coming in two parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cement-based smoothing compound, and a liquid latex component. The latex liquid part actually replaces the water which would typically be used for mixing screed, and is far more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds.

This latex screed compound is used to level-out a subfloor prior to the final decorative surface being installed. Producing a smooth, resilient surface that is ideal for the application of adhesives, this screed is is appropriate for use on subfloors of sand/cement, stone tiles, concrete, wood and asphalt. This latex screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there's movement in your sub-floor.

When an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex screeds aren't a suitable choice, because in cases like this (normally when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you'll likely need a screed thickness of 50 to 75 millimetres.
