They will in addition assess if a structural engineer is required to make sure that any point loadings, load bearing and flex strength are met in accordance with construction and building regulations.

A skilled and qualified work force is essential to a successful outcome and will extend your floor's lifespan by using the correct sort of screed for the proposed purpose of your room. A correct mix of screed and the way it is laid is also critical to ensure the final quality of your floor surface.

Before deciding upon a screeding specialist from any based in the Kesgrave area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their estimate, and also make sure you get multiple quotations. For domestic homes a quotation will usually be given for a Surface Regularity (SR) level of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the highest level, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may seem cheaper initially, they don't guarantee a perfectly flat or even floor surface. This means you may need to fix any areas that may cause problems when putting down your finished flooring solution.

The rules and regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by all Kesgrave floor screeding contractors and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc.) to confirm their competence and safe working practices. The assessment and training of a screeding contractor by such manufacturers is highlighted through this accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any screeding project involving their materials.

Commercial screeders in Kesgrave will generally tackle larger floor screeding projects in factories, schools, hospitals, shopping centres, boutiques and warehouses.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential projects where the mixture of sand and cement is good for basic floor traffic usage. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the usual mixture for standard screed. This 5:1 ratio standard screed will dry out at a rate of one millimetre per day after laying.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured option where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Kesgrave. This is because of the increased durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking offered by the special fibres within the screed mix. At roughly 1mm per day, it has the same setting rate to standard screed.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is required on account of construction factors, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength resolution to the problem. Manufacturer's guidelines for curing times differ across the various product ranges.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement compound. This self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all types of flooring materials to be laid. Even with a thickness of only one millimetre, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength screed for a variety of uses.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to progress urgently with the flooring owing to time limitations, these screeds dry more speedily than standard screeds. They are typically a fibre reinforced type of screed that dries out at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are used in time dependent projects.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Designed for maximum strength and durability in areas where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor is needed.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To ensure that the screeding is of a high quality finish that is durable and hard wearing, time should be devoted to fully preparing the area before any screed is laid. Any grease, debris, oil and paint on the original floor level can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be eradicated.

If any cleaning products were used in this process it is crucial to make sure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the surface and it is allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor any cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and resulting in deviations on the final surface. A decent Kesgrave screeding company will address these aspects during a on-site survey and ensure all preparations are finished before applying the next stages of the screeding process.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be applied after the preparation work has been done to prevent ground dampness getting into the flooring materials and screeding. There may be 2 or 3 layers of varying thickness polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

A further air-tight barrier might be necessary if your building is in a location that's regarded as susceptible to radon gas. A simple airtight membrane might be sufficient in places with low radon emissions, but in more extreme cases there might need to be a more complex extraction system to remove any ground penetrating radon gas.

Once the base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then put on. These sealers and primers will ensure that the screed bonds properly to the base and help produce a quality finished floor. These materials require trained technicians to apply them in the correct proportions by using bespoke equipment, such as airless sprays.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and checked before the screed is poured. The wires and heating pipes are securely mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and make certain they are laid in the correct position. When skillfully installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm up a room and top quality screeding retains its heat, creating an even heat right across the floor surface.

The screed can now be prepared on site and poured onto the floor base. Your screeding specialist will give you advice on which screed type is suitable for your needs, in line with your intended use of the room. Don't forget that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk over any laid surfaces and at least three days before any floor coverings can be laid. If you're laying heavy duty or standard screeds the curing time is increased and you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best possible finish to your floor.

You can test the SR level of the finished screed once it is hardened enough for walking on. Using a 2 mtr straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any ridges, dips and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best standard and permits just 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor deviates from the straight edge by five millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 level and is the standard for commercial and industrial floors.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10mm or less the quality of the screeding is classified as SR3 and is fine for garage and utility areas.

If you need load bearing checks, a structural engineer is needed to perform the testing. Using specialist equipment the engineer will verify the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. This can include a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. The specialist testing and measurement tools mean that this can only be conducted by a fully qualified structural engineer obeying the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screeds Kesgrave

When the surface of a floor needs a bit of flexibility, it is best to use a latex screeding. Latex screeds typically comprise 2 parts - a cement-based smoothing compound, and a liquid latex mixture. The latex liquid solution takes the place of the water that is used in other types of screed, making it quicker drying and more flexible.

This latex compound is used for levelling-out subfloors in advance of the laying of the final decorative surface. Appropriate for substrate of concrete, asphalt, wood, sand/cement and quarry tiles, this gives a perfect surface for the application of flooring adhesives which is smooth and resilient. This type of floor screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there is a bit of movement in your sub-floor.

Latex screeds are not suitable where a "floating" screed is desired, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid over a membrane of either thermal or acoustic insulation, such as could be the case when you're screeding over underfloor heating, and screed depths of 50mm-75mm may be needed.
