TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is good for standard residential use and is a mixture of sand and cement. Five parts sand to one part cement is the usual mix for standard screed. This 5:1 ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm per day after applying.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to press ahead urgently with the flooring on account of time limitations, this screed dries more speedily than standard flooring screeds. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, depending on the mixture, they're typically a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are perfect for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.

Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Polymer screeds are made by many manufacturers and owing to their different chemical compositions have distinct curing times for each individual product.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that is designed for heavy traffic and high load areas where maximum durability and strength is vital.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is required this mixture of cement and latex is used to produce SR1 quality screeding. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be poured to a depth of just 1mm, but still provides a high strength base for a varied selection of flooring materials.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option for professional installers where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Langport. This is because of the improved durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the special fibres within the screed mix. It dries out at the same rate as a standard screed, at about one millimetre per day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will have to prepare the area before proceeding with any other work so as to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The existing floor surface should be cleaned to remove any oil, paint, debris and grease that might affect the adhesion of the screeding.

If any cleaning products were used during this stage it's crucial to ensure that no residues of detergents, soaps or other cleaning products are left on the floor 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" through your screed layer and causing deviations on the final surface. During a site survey the screeding installer will establish what preparations are necessary before any actual screeding work commences.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be installed after the preparation work has been completed to stop ground moisture affecting the flooring materials and screeding. Different gauges of special polythene could be used as a DPM and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.

If the area is susceptible to radon gas then a further barrier is needed to stop this harmful gas from entering from the ground. If radon occurs in severe doses then a complete ventilation system may be installed beneath the layer of screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from ground level.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeding company will put on a primer or sealer to the prepared base surface. Sealers and primers help with the bonding process and are specialist applications matched to the sort of screed being applied. These substances require certified contractors to apply them in the right ratios by using bespoke equipment, such as airless sprays.

If you are going to be installing under floor heating, now is the time that it will need to be set out and installed. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and firmly attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement in the course of the screed installation process. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system should produce even warmth all over the floor.

Of course, if you aren't installing under floor heating, you can just skip this stage and apply the floor screed. Your use of the room will assist the screeding contractor on which kind of floor screed is perfect for your requirements. For quick drying screeds there will be at least 24 hours delay before it can be walked on, and a further 3 days minimum before you can install any flooring materials. This timescale is increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's instructions must be followed to the letter to achieve the best finish and durability of the floor.

Once the screed has solidified it can be checked for quality to confirm the SR level. The test involves the use of a two metre straight edge laid on the floor surface and any deviations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less being measured across the entire floor area shows your screeding to be of the finest quality and classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the entire floor.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the finish is fairly immaterial the SR3 is the specification and has a deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If your screeding has been laid with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer will be necessary to perform the assessment. This test will determine the overall strength of the screed and its viability for the intended use. An assessment called the drop hammer test is conducted on different areas of the screed and the outcomes documented. Any screed flooring that's got point load requirements must be okayed by a trained structural engineer heeding the BS8204 guidelines.
