TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A combination of sand and cement which is perfect for normal residential use. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the normal mixture for standard flooring screeds. After being laid a standard flooring screed dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to use the floor as soon 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 per day and are employed in time critical flooring projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with underfloor heating and is the suggested choice in such projects. This is due to the improved strength and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the fibres within the screed mix. It sets at the same rate as a standard screed of one millimetre per day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Designed for maximum durability and strength in places where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor is necessary.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is necessary. Owing to their different chemical compositions, polymer screeds have varying drying times which you can verify by reading manufacturer's product guidelines.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex mixture which can achieve the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. This self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all flooring materials to be laid. Even with a depth of just one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish which is durable and hard wearing, time should be spent on fully preparing the area before any screeding material is laid. Any grease, paint, debris and oil on the original floor level can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eradicated.

If cleaning products have been used it is vital to remove any remnants of detergent or soap, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the final surface. During an on-site survey your Isleworth screeding specialist will ascertain what preparations are necessary before starting to work on the actual screeding.

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

If your house is situated in an area where radon gas is found a supplementary barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from entering. If radon occurs in severe doses then a complete extraction and ventilation system might be needed underneath the screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from ground level.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealer. Sealers and primers assist with the bonding process and are special applications according to the type of screed that is being used. Equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by qualified screeding contractors in Isleworth observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Before any screed is laid, any underfloor heating (if required) will now set out and installed. The heating pipes and cables are firmly attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure that they're positioned correctly. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system should give an even warmth in all areas of the floor.

The screed can now be prepared in situ and poured onto the floor base. Your screeding specialist will have given you guidance and advice on which screed type is best for your requirements, in line with your intended use of the room area. Remember that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk on any laid surface and at least three days before any flooring materials can be fitted. If you're laying heavy duty or standard screeds the setting time is increased and you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines so as to get the best finish to your floor.

Once the screed has set it can be quality checked to establish the SR standard. Using a 2 mtr straight-edge the surface is checked for any deviations, dips and ridges in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the whole screed area, if there are no disparities greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, 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 commercial and industrial floors.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish isn't necessary. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10mm.

It might also be necessary for a structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. This test will establish the strength of the screed surface and the suitability for its proposed use. The screed could be given a "drop hammer test" to determine flexibility and strength at various points. Any screed floor that has point load requirements must be approved by a competent structural engineer heeding the BS8204 guidelines.
