TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Frequently used in residential flooring projects where the mixture of cement and sand is ideal for basic footfall usage. Five parts sand to one part cement is the typical mixture for standard screeds. This 5:1 ratio standard screed will dry out at a rate of one millimetre per day after laying.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional installers for use with under floor heating systems. The improved strength and flex offered by the fibres within the screed help protect the flooring from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. At around 1mm per day, it has an identical setting rate to standard floor screed.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this solution of latex and cement is employed to produce SR1 level screed flooring. It is mainly needed to produce a smooth, clean floor over the top of a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a surface finish onto which all forms of flooring materials can be laid. Even with a depth of 1mm, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.

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 is necessary.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is needed. Maker's guidelines for curing times differ across the various product ranges.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to move forward urgently with the work owing to time restraints, these screeds dry much faster than standard screeds. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are perfect for a wide variety of flooring projects where the swifter drying rate of 3-7mm/day is a considerable advantage.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Preparation is crucial for a top quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. It's important that all contaminants such as oil, debris, grease or paint is removed from the base before pouring any screed, because these can affect the bonding process that a quality floor screed demands.

If cleansing products have been used it's vital to remove any traces of detergent, soap etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. It is necessary to repair any cracks in the floor surface to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" up into the newly screeded floor. An on-site survey will allow your Immingham screeding specialist to pinpoint these preparation areas and complete them before beginning to pour the screeding layer.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed to protect the final flooring and screed from dampness. There could be 2 or 3 layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If the area is at risk from radon then an additional barrier is necessary to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. An airtight membrane might be sufficient in places with low emissions of radon, however in more serious cases there might need to be a more complicated extraction system to block any ground penetrating radon gas.

Once the base has been properly prepared and all membranes installed, a sealer or primer is then applied. Primers assist with the bonding process and are specialist applications matched to the kind of screed that's being applied. These materials need experienced contractors to apply them in the correct proportions by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.

This is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct manner. Insulation panels will be put in place and the heating pipes and wires will be securely fastened to prevent any movement while the screed is being poured. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system should produce even level of warmth in all areas of the floor.

The screeding can now be prepared on site and spread onto the floor surface. Your proposed use of the room will assist the screeding contractor on which type of screed is perfect for your requirements. Remember that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any screeded surface and at least seventy two hours before any flooring materials can be applied. If you're hoping to wind up with a properly finished and long-lasting floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to standard and heavy duty screeds where the waiting period will be longer.

The SR standard of your screeding can be checked once it has solidified enough to be stepped onto. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the floor 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 level surface.
  • SR2 - If the screed has a deviation from the straight-edge of five millimetres or less it is SR2 level and is the standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the finish is comparatively immaterial SR3 is the classification and has a deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

It might also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. This assessment will determine the strength of the screeded surface and the viability for its proposed use. A drop hammer test is carried out at various areas on the screed and the outcomes documented. Any screeding that's got load bearing requirements must be sanctioned by a fully qualified structural engineer observing the British Standards BS8204 regulations.

Latex Screeding Immingham

When a certain degree of flexibility is required in a floor's surface you may find that using a latex self-levelling floor screed will be an advantage. Typically coming in two parts, latex screeds comprise a cement-based smoothing compound, and a liquid latex mixture. The liquid latex additive replaces the water which is used in other types of screed, meaning it is quicker drying and more flexible.

This latex compound is used for levelling subfloors prior to the laying of the final decorative surface. Producing a resilient and smooth surface which is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives, this is is suitable for use on sub-floors of wood, asphalt, stone tiles, sand/cement and concrete. Even when there is a bit of movement on your sub-floor, this latex screeding will give you a flexible, crack-free finish.

With "floating" screeds, for instance when a screed is being laid on top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, latex screeds will not be appropriate. Floating screeds with a depth of 50 to 75 millimetres are frequently used on top of underfloor heating.
