Your screeding contractor will also inform you if a structural engineer is needed for your undertaking, to identify flex strength, point loadings and load bearing that your flooring might need to conform with current building regulations and British Standards.

The skills and training that a qualified screeding contractor brings to your project will guarantee a high quality outcome and help in prolonging the life of your flooring. There are numerous types of floor screed and selecting the appropriate mix and laying approach is crucial if you are to achieve a top quality floor that is both durable and fit for purpose.

There are numerous screeding specialists in the Kingsbridge area so make sure you get multiple estimates for your screeding project before choosing a contractor and know to what standard of finish it's for. The estimate should be based on what is called the SR, or Surface Regularity calculation. SR1 is the highest quality, and while SR2 and SR3 may be less expensive initially, they do not guarantee a totally flat or even floor surface. This means that you might have to fix any areas that might cause issues when laying your finished flooring solution.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A combination of sand and cement which is good for regular domestic usage. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the typical mixture for standard flooring screeds. This 5:1 ratio standard screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm per day after applying.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Polymer screeds are available from many manufacturers and because of their diverse chemical compositions have specific curing times for each product.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are high or heavy loading on the floor is required, heavy duty screeds allow for maximum durability and strength.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is required this formula of cement and latex is employed to produce SR1 level floor screeding. This is mainly used to produce a clean, smooth floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a finish onto which all types of flooring materials can be laid. Even with a thickness of 1mm, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there is a need to move forward urgently with the flooring on account of time limitations, these screeds dry much quicker than standard flooring screeds. The vast majority of the fast drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are perfect for a wide array of projects where the speedier drying rate of 3-7mm/day is an advantage.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with under floor heating and is the suggested choice in these projects. The special fibres in the screed mix enhance it's strength and durability whilst also safeguarding against thermal cracking and shrinkage. It has a drying rate of 1mm per day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Good preparation is crucial for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. The original floor surface should be cleaned to remove any debris, grease, paint and oil that might adversely affect the bond of the screed.

Screeding Near Kingsbridge (TQ7)

Any cleansing chemicals used during this stage should leave no residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" through a screed layer and causing deviations on the final floor surface. A reputable Kingsbridge screeding company will take note of such aspects during a site survey and make certain all preparations are complete before moving on to the next stages of the floor screeding process.

To protect the flooring materials and screeding layer from dampness rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed. There could be 2 or 3 layers of different thickness polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If your home is located in an area where radon gas is found an extra barrier layer is necessary to stop radon gas from entering. If radon gas occurs in large amounts then a complete extraction and ventilation system may be installed beneath the screed which will remove any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

Once the base has been prepared and all membranes installed, a sealant or primer is then applied. A primer assists in the screed bonding process to the base and different varieties exist according to which screed type is being applied. These products require qualified technicians to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

If required, this is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. The wires and heating pipes are firmly attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure they are held in the correct position. Warmth will be spread evenly across a floor area in a professionally fitted underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's an ideal choice for most Kingsbridge home restoration projects.

If you're not installing under floor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. Your use of the room will assist your screeding specialist on what sort of floor screed is ideal for your needs. Bear in mind that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk on any screeded surface and a minimum three days before any flooring can be applied. This time period is increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's product guidelines must be followed to create the optimal finish and durability of the floor.

The SR standard of your screeding can be checked once it has solidified sufficiently to be walked on. The test involves using a 2 mtr straight edge laid down upon the surface and any deviations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less being measured across the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish is not needed. This classification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10mm.

If your screeding has been installed with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be necessary to carry out tests. The testing will make sure that your new screed is suitable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the original site survey. A "drop hammer test" will be performed on various areas of the screed and the results documented. Any screed flooring that's got load bearing requirements must be sanctioned by a certified structural engineer heeding the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screed Kingsbridge

It is advantageous to use a latex floor screed when a certain amount of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor. Normally coming in two parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cement-based powder, and a liquid latex mixture. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds, because the water which is normally used is replaced with the latex liquid.

This latex screed compound is used to level a subfloor before the final decorative surface is installed. This is appropriate for sub-floors made of sand/cement, asphalt, stone tiles, wood or concrete, is perfect for the application of adhesives and gives a resilient and smooth surface. If your subfloor has any movement in it, this type of screed will still provide a flexible, crack-free finish, onto which your chosen floor coverings can be laid.

When a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of either thermal or acoustic insulation (i.e. a floating screed), latex floor screeds are not suitable, because in cases like this (usually when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you will likely require a screed thickness of 50mm-65mm.
