Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is necessary this blend of cement and latex is used to produce SR1 quality screed flooring. Mainly used to improve a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, such as tiling over it. Even with a thickness of just one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to use the floor as soon as possible a fast drying screed might be a good choice. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, determined by the specialised mix, they're generally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are suitable for flooring projects that have tight schedules.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option where under floor heating is being installed in residential homes in Irchester.

To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time should be spent on fully preparing the area prior to any screed being laid. The original floor surface should be cleaned to remove any debris, grease, oil and paint which can affect the adhesion of the screeding.

Screeding Near Irchester (NN29)

If any cleaning products were used during this stage it is crucial to make certain that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. At this stage any cracks should be repaired as these can travel up through the laid screed and be visible in the completed surface. An on-site survey will enable your Irchester screeding contractor to take note of this preparation work and tackle it before starting to pour the screeding layer.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed after the preparation work has been done to stop ground dampness getting into the screed and floor materials. Different gauges of polythene sheets might be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation materials.

If your property is located in a place where radon gas is found an extra barrier layer is necessary to stop radon gas from entering. If radon is present in severe doses then a full ventilation and extraction system might be needed beneath the screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from ground level.

Once these steps have been taken the screeders will apply a primer or sealer to the prepared base surface. A primer assists in the screed bonding process to the base and membranes and different varieties exist based upon which type of screed is being used. These substances need certified contractors to apply them in the correct ratios by using custom-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Under floor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before the screed is poured. Insulation panels will be arranged and the cabling and heating pipes will be firmly fastened so there's no movement while the screed is being applied. When professionally installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm a room and high quality screed retains its heat, creating an even level of warmth right across the floor surface.

Obviously, if you aren't putting in underfloor heating, you can just skip this step and apply the screeding. Your use of the room will assist the screeding specialist on which sort of screed is perfect for your needs. After the application of the screed there will be at least 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you are able to walk on the surface, and a 72 hours minimum curing period for the laying of any floor coverings. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds must be followed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and long lasting surface.

You can assess the SR standard of the finished screeding as soon as it's set enough for walking on. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of three millimetres or less as measured across the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the finest quality and is specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the entire screeded floor.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10mm or less the quality of the screeding is classified as SR3 and is suitable for garage and utility areas.

If your screeding has been laid with specific loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be necessary to perform the assessment. Using specialised equipment the engineer will verify the screed surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. This should include a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. The specialist measurement and testing tools involved mean that this can only be undertaken by a fully qualified structural engineer following the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeding Irchester

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a certain amount of flexibility is required, it will be best to apply a latex screeding, as opposed to one with a rigid finish. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cemetitious powder, and the bottle containing a liquid latex mixture. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds, because the water that's normally used is exchanged for the latex liquid.

This latex compound is used for levelling sub-floors prior to the laying of the final decorative covering. Producing a resilient, smooth surface that is ideal for the application of adhesives, this is is appropriate for use on subfloors of quarry tiles, concrete, wood, asphalt and sand/cement. If there's a bit of movement in the sub-floor this type of latex floor screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish on which you can lay your chosen floor coverings.

When installing a "floating" screed, i.e. when an unbonded screed is being laid over a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, thicknesses of 50mm-75mm may be necessary, and latex flooring screeds are not appropriate for this purpose.
