TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is ideal for basic residential usage and comprises a mix of sand and cement. The ratios involved in standard screeds are five parts sand to one part cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of one millimetre each day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are necessary, by a cement and latex formula. It's largely used to provide a smooth, clean floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a surface onto which all forms 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.

Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a minimal thickness. On account of their different chemical compositions, polymer screeds have varying drying times which can be verified by viewing manufacturer's product guidelines.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries at a quicker rate and allows you to use the floor area much faster. They are generally a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are employed in time-sensitive flooring projects.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will need to prepare the area before proceeding with any other work in order to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It is important that any contaminants such as loose debris, grease, paint or oil is eradicated from the floor surface before laying any screed, since these can affect the bonding process that a quality floor screed requires.

Any cleansing products used during this stage shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. It is essential to mend any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" up into the freshly screeded floor. A decent Kinver screeding company will address these aspects during a on-site survey and ensure all preparations are complete before pressing on with the next stages of the screeding process.

To protect the screeding layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed. There may be two or three layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

If the area is at risk from radon gas then an additional barrier is required to stop this harmful gas from entering via the ground. A simple air-tight membrane might be sufficient in locations with low levels of radon, but in more serious cases there may have to be a more sophisticated extraction and ventilation system to block any harmful radon gases.

The final stage of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealant. A primer helps with the screed to bond successfully to the base surface and different varieties exist based upon which kind of screed is being applied. Devices such as airless sprays can be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by professional screeding companies in Kinver observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

If required, this is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. Insulation panels can be laid out and the wires and heating pipes will be securely attached to prevent any movement while the screed is being poured. Warmth is evenly spread across a floor area in a skillfully installed underfloor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient method of heating, it is a good choice for many Kinver home renovation projects.

Obviously, if you aren't putting in underfloor heating, you can just bypass this stage and apply the screeding. Your intended use of the room will assist your screeding company on what sort of floor screed is ideal for your requirements. For quick drying screeds there'll be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked on, and a further seventy two hours minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. This timescale is increased for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's product guidelines should be followed to produce the optimal finish and durability of the floor.

The SR standard of your screed can be ascertained once it has solidified enough to be walked on. The test involves the use of a 2m straight edge laid on the surface and any fluctuations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there are no deviations of more than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top specification SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor deviates from the straight edge by five millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial floors.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is comparatively immaterial the SR3 is the specification and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

It might also be necessary for a structural engineer to perform a soundness test. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will ascertain the screeding strength and viability of use in a load bearing environment. An assessment called the drop hammer test will be carried out on different areas of the screed layer and the results recorded. The specialist testing and measurement tools mean that this can only be conducted by a certified structural engineer following the BS8204 guidelines.
