Whatever shape or size of room or area you're remodeling, a decent floor screeding specialist in Largs can provide you with the expertise and proper working practices to generate a perfect base for your floor.

Floor Screeding Largs Scotland (KA30)

It might be necessary, based on the intended use of the area, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform with building regulations on load requirements, point loadings and flex strength of the screed floor.

A qualified and skilled work force is imperative for a successful outcome and will extend the life of your floor by using the correct sort of screed for your room's anticipated purpose. Picking the correct screeding materials and the method of installation is vital if you want to finish up with a durable and quality finish for your floor.

Make sure you get 2 or 3 quotes for your Largs screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each price quote is for. The quote could be based on what's known as the SR, or Surface Regularity calculation. SR1 is the highest quality, and whilst SR2 and SR3 might be less expensive initially, they don't guarantee a totally flat or even floor surface. This means you may have to correct any patches that might cause problems when laying your final flooring material.

The regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by any Largs floor screeding contractor and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc.) to substantiate their safe working practices and competence. This accreditation scheme highlights a firm's ability and training in the use of a manufacturer's product.

Commercial screeders in Largs will usually tackle floor screeding projects in salons, hospitals, warehouses, schools, shopping centres and factories.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A mix of sand and cement which is acceptable for normal residential use. This mixture uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. This five to one ratio standard screed will dry out at a rate of one millimetre per day after applying.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to progress urgently with the flooring due to time constraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard flooring screeds. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, subject to the mixture, they're generally a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are perfect for flooring projects that have tight deadlines.

Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Polymer screeds are available from many manufacturers and owing to their varying chemical compositions have specific setting times for each individual product.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are essential, by a latex and cement formula. This is mainly needed to provide a clean, smooth floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. The liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of just one millimetre, but will still provide a high strength base to take a selection of flooring finishes.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option where underfloor heating is being installed in domestic properties in Largs. The fibres in this screed mix improve overall durability and strength whilst also protecting against thermal cracking and shrinkage. It's got a setting rate of 1mm per day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum durability and strength in areas where traffic is expected to be high or specific loading of the floor is required.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To guarantee the screeding is of a high quality finish that's hard wearing and durable, time should be spent on fully preparing the area prior to any screed being laid. The existing floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eradicate any grease, debris, paint and oil which might affect the adhesion of the screeding.

Screeding Near Largs (KA30)

If any cleaning products are used in this process it is crucial to make certain that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. At this point cracks should be repaired since these can easily travel up through a newly laid screed and be visible in the completed surface. During a site survey the screeding specialist will ascertain what preparation work is required before any actual screeding work begins.

To protect the flooring materials and screed layer from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed. Different thicknesses of polythene sheets may be used as a DPM and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.

A supplementary air-tight barrier could be required if your house is in an area that is known to be susceptible to radon. If radon is present in large amounts then a complete ventilation system might be needed beneath the screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from the ground.

As soon as the base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a sealant or primer is then applied. Primers and sealers assist with the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the type of screed being used. These substances need professional contractors to apply them in the correct proportions by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Under floor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before the screed is applied. Insulation panels can be put in place and the heating pipes and wires will be firmly attached so that there is no movement whilst the screed is being applied. Underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system should give an even warmth in all areas of the floor.

If you aren't installing under floor heating the screed can now be prepared in situ and laid. The requirements of the room will dictate the kind of screeding that is used. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least a 24 hour delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further 3 days minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. Such periods will be increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's product guidelines must be followed to the letter to accomplish the optimum finish and durability of the floor.

The SR standard of your screeding can be checked once it's solidified enough to be walked on. The test involves using a 2m long straight-edge laid down upon the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the whole area, if there aren't any disparities of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10 millimetres or less the screeding quality is classed as SR3 and is fine for garage and utility areas.

If your screed floor has been laid with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be needed to perform tests. Using specialised equipment the engineer will assess the screed strength and viability of use in a load bearing setting. This will include what is known as a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. Only experienced structural engineers heeding the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to carry out such tests and sign off on the structural integrity of screed flooring.

Latex Floor Screeds Largs

When a level of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface you may find that the use of a latex screed will be an advantage. Latex screeds come in 2 parts - a bag and a bottle - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cement based powder. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the latex liquid, making it quicker drying and more flexible than other standard screeds.

This latex screed is used to level-out a sub-floor before the final decorative surface is installed. This is appropriate for use on sub-floors of asphalt, sand/cement, wood, concrete and quarry tiles, to provide a resilient and smooth surface that is ideal for the application of adhesives. This type of screeding will give you a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there happens to be movement in your sub-floor.

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