The screeding company will also inform you if a structural engineer is necessary for your project, to check on load requirements, point loadings and flex strength that your flooring might need to conform with British Standards and building regulations.

Working with a skilled and qualified specialist will ensure that you get the correct form of screed for the room's anticipated purpose and get the optimum lifespan out of your flooring. A correct mixture of screed and the way it is laid is also important to ensure the final durability of your floor surface.

There are several screeding specialists in the Ivybridge area so see if you can get multiple quotations for your project before picking out a company and know to what standard of finish it's for. For domestic homes a quotation will normally be provided for a Surface Regularity (SR) calculation of SR1 or SR2. Each of the 3 SR levels provide different levels of finish, with SR1 offering the highest quality, with the lowest amount of deviation over the surface area. An SR2 or SR3 standard could mean there will be flat spots or ridges that may cause issues when installing your final flooring surface (carpet, wood, tile etc).

British Standards BS8204 sets down the guidelines and regulations that all Ivybridge screeding installers are required to follow, and if working with specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc), they must be certified by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. The testing and training of a screeding company by such manufacturers is highlighted by the use of this accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any flooring project involving their materials.

For larger screeding projects in schools, pubs, hospitals, factories, warehouses and shops, skilled Ivybridge commercial screeders will be required.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A combination of sand and cement which is ideal for standard residential use. The ratios involved are five parts sand to one part cement. After laying a standard screed mixture dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a minimal thickness. The curing times for these vary according to proprietary product guidelines.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is needed this mix of of cement and latex is employed to create SR1 quality screeding. Mainly used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level in order to lay a brand new flooring surface, such as tiling on the top of it. Even with a depth of just one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to use the area ASAP a fast drying screed can be used. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, depending on the specialised mix, they are generally a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are suitable for projects which have tight deadlines.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use on top of underfloor heating. The improved strength and flex provided by the special fibres within this screed help protect the resulting floor from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. At around 1mm per day, it has an identical setting rate to standard floor screed.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will have to fully prepare the area before any other work so as to guarantee a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The original floor surface should be cleaned to remove any debris, paint, grease and oil which might affect the bond of the screed.

If any products were used in this process it's important to make certain that no residues of soaps or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. It's vital to fix any cracks or crevices in the base to avoid them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. During a site survey the screeding contractor will be able to see what preparations are required before any actual screeding work begins.

To protect the screeding layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed. The DPM is made from thick polythene and different layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

If your home is situated in a place where radon is present an additional barrier layer is essential to stop radon gas from getting through. This can be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in more serious situations a ventilation system will be installed beneath the screed to take away any influx of air and gas from ground level.

As soon as the base has been properly prepared and all DPMs installed, a primer or sealer is then applied. A primer helps with the screed bonding process to the base surface and different types exist based upon which kind of screed is being applied. These substances need certified contractors to apply them in the right proportions by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Before any screed can be poured, any under floor heating (if required) will now be laid out. The heating pipes and cabling are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure they are positioned correctly. When expertly installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm up a room and high quality screed will retain its heat, generating an even level of warmth right across the floor surface.

If you're not fitting under floor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and laid. The specific requirements of the room will determine the sort of screeding used. After application of the screed there is a minimum twenty four hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you can walk over the surface, and a 72 hrs minimum setting period before the laying of any flooring materials. If you're aiming to end up with a well finished and hard-wearing floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to standard and heavy duty screeds where this time period will be increased.

Once the screeding has hardened it can be checked for quality to determine its SR standard. Using a 2 metre straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any deviations, dips and ridges in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest quality and allows just 3 millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the entire floor.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is ten millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is specified as SR3 and is highly suitable for garage and utility areas.

If you require load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is required to carry out the testing. The assessment will make sure that your newly laid screed is suitable for the load bearing requirements specified in the site survey. The screed will be subjected to a "drop hammer test" to measure strength and flexibility at specific points. Only trained structural engineers heeding the British Standards BS8204 regulations are permitted to conduct these testing and sign off on the structural integrity of the screeding.

Latex Screeds Ivybridge

When the nature of your floor's surface means that a certain degree of flexibility is needed, it will be advantageous to use a latex self-levelling floor screed, rather than one with an unyielding finish. Generally coming in 2 parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cement-based smoothing compound, and a liquid latex component. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the liquid latex, making it more flexible than standard screeds, and quicker drying.

This latex screed product is used to level-out a subfloor prior to the final decorative surface being laid. This is appropriate for use on substrate of wood, asphalt, sand/cement, quarry tiles and concrete, to provide a smooth, resilient surface that's perfect for the application of flooring adhesives. Even when there happens to be a bit of movement in your subfloor, this latex floor screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish.

With a "floating" screed, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid on top of a layer of acoustic or thermal insulation, latex floor screeds will not be a suitable choice. Floating screeds with a depth of 50-65mm are normally used over underfloor heating.
