Floor Screeding Linwood Scotland (PA3)

It may be necessary, according to the intended use of the space, for a structural engineering survey to conform with building regulations on point loadings, flex strength and load requirements of the screed floor.

The training and skills that a qualified screeding technician brings to your project will guarantee a high quality end result and help to extend the lifetime of your floors. The correct mixture of screed and the techniques used for laying it are also vital to guarantee the ultimate quality of your floor.

Before choosing a floor screeding specialist from any operating in the Linwood area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their estimate, and also make sure you get two or three estimates. The quotation should be based on what is called the SR, or Surface Regularity number. Each of the three SR levels provide different standards of finish, with SR1 being the highest quality, with the least amount of deviation over the surface area. This means that you may have to fix any areas that could cause problems when putting down your finished flooring solution.

The guidelines and regulations set out in in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by all Linwood floor screeding companies and they must also be accredited by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc.) to substantiate their competence and safe working practices. The training and assessment of a floor screeding contractor by such manufacturers is highlighted through this accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any screeding project involving their materials.

Linwood commercial screeders might be involved in floor screeding in hospitals, schools, factories, pubs, shopping centres and warehouses.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is acceptable for standard residential use and comprises a combination of sand and cement. This mixture uses a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. The standard flooring screed dries at a rate of one millimetre thickness per day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex material. This is largely needed to produce 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. These can be as little as one millimetre thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

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

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area in question as quickly as possible a fast drying screed may be used. These are generally a fibre reinforced type of screed which can dry out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are employed in time-sensitive projects.

Polymer Screeds - These provide an extremely high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Polymer screeds are available from many screed manufacturers and on account of their different chemical compositions have specific drying times for each individual product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with underfloor heating and is the preferred choice in these projects. This is because of the increased strength and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the fibres within the screed. It dries at the same rate as a standard screed, at about one millimetre per day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Preparation is vital for a quality finished screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The original floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eliminate any paint, oil, debris and grease that might affect the adhesion of the screed.

Any cleansing products that are used in this stage shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and producing deviations on the final surface. During an on-site survey your Linwood screeding installer will be able to see what preparation work is required before starting to work on the actual screeding.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be put down to shield the screed and final flooring from dampness. There might be 2 or 3 layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

A further airtight barrier might be required if your house is in a location that's known to be susceptible to radon gas emissions. If radon is present in large amounts then a full ventilation and extraction system may be installed under the layer of screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from the ground.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a sealer or primer. These sealers and primers will make sure that the screed bonds effectively to the base and help accomplish a quality finished floor. These materials require trained tradesmen to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.

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 is laid out in the correct pattern and firmly attached to insulation panels to stop potential movement during screed pouring. When properly installed an under floor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and top quality screeding will retain its heat, producing an even heat right across the floor surface.

The screed can now be prepared in situ and applied to the floor surface. Your screeding specialist will give you guidance and advice on which sort of screed is appropriate for your requirements, according to your proposed use of the room area. After the pouring of the screed there is at least 24 hours (for quick drying screeds) before you can walk on the surface, and a 72 hour minimum drying time before any floor material installation. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds should be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even floor surface.

As soon as the screeding has set it can be checked for quality to establish the SR standard. Through the use of a 2 mtr straight-edge the surface is examined for any dips, deviations and ridges in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest specification and allows just 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5mm or less it is considered SR2 level and is the normal standard for commercial and industrial floors.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect finish isn't needed. This classification can have a maximum permissible deviation of 10 millimetres.

If you need load bearing checks, a structural engineer is needed to perform the testing. The assessment will make certain that your newly laid screeding is viable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the site survey. An assessment called the drop hammer test is conducted on different areas of the screed layer and the outcomes recorded. Only qualified structural engineers observing the BS8204 guidelines are permitted to carry out these testing and sign off on the structural safety of screed flooring.
