A qualified and skilled work force is essential to a successful outcome and will extend the lifespan of your floor through the use of the correct form of screed for the intended purpose of your room. The correct mix of screed and the methods used in laying it are also crucial to guarantee the ultimate quality of your floor.

There are many screeding contractors in the Llanelli area so if possible get multiple price quotes for your project before choosing a contractor and know to what standard of finish is it for. The quote could be based on what is called the Surface Regularity, or SR calculation. SR1 is the best quality, and while SR2 and SR3 may seem less expensive initially, they do not guarantee a totally flat or even surface. This means you may need to correct any areas that might cause issues when putting down your final flooring solution.

The regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by all Llanelli floor screeding companies and they must also be approved by the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc.) to confirm their competence and safe working practices. The training and testing of a screeding contractor by such manufacturers is underlined through the accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any flooring project which involves their materials.

Llanelli commercial screeders could be involved in the screeding of floors in shopping centres, factories, hotels, hospitals, schools and warehouses.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Used in residential flooring projects where the mixture of cement and sand is good for normal footfall use. This mixture uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. The standard flooring screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

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

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

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries rapidly and allows you to use the screeded area much sooner. 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 flooring projects.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement mixture. It is mostly used to provide a smooth, clean floor over the top of a poor quality or damaged substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. The liquid screed can be laid to a depth of just one millimetre, but still provides a high strength surface for a varied selection of flooring materials.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional contractors for use with underfloor heating systems. This is due to the increased durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the fibres within the screed. At approximately 1mm per day, it has a similar setting rate to standard floor screed.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will have to carefully prepare the area before any other work in order to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It is important that any contaminants such as oil, paint, debris or grease is eliminated from the base before laying any screed, as these can affect the bonding process that a quality screed requires.

If any cleaning products are used during this stage it's vital to ensure that no residues of soaps, detergents or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. At this stage any cracks should be repaired as these can travel up through your newly laid screed and be reflected in the finished surface. A competent Llanelli screeding specialist will pick up on such problems during a site survey and make certain all preparations are finished before pressing on with the next stages of the screeding process.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be installed after the preparation work has been finished to prevent ground dampness affecting the screeding and floor materials. The DPM is made out of thick polythene sheet and various layers could be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

An additional air-tight barrier may be needed if your property is in an area which is regarded as susceptible to radon gas. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a complete ventilation system might be needed beneath the screed which will remove any gases that are seeping in from the ground.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeders will put on a sealant or primer to the prepared base surface. A primer helps with the screed to bond successfully to the base surface and different types exist according to which type of screed is being applied. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by professional screeding companies in Llanelli observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before screeding is applied. The heating pipes and wires are securely attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement and ensure that they are laid in the correct position. When properly installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm up a room and good quality screed will retain its heat, producing an even heat right across the floor.

Needless to say, if you're not installing underfloor heating, you simply skip this stage and apply the screed. Your use of the room will assist your screeding contractor on what form of screed is perfect for your requirements. Bear in mind that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk on any laid surface and at least 3 days before any floor coverings can be fitted. If you're laying heavy duty or standard screeds the drying time is longer and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed in order to get the best finish for your floor.

The SR standard of your screed can be ascertained once it has solidified enough to be walked upon. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 metre straight edge to check for any variations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of three millimetres or less being measured across the whole floor area shows your screed to be of the highest quality and is categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole screeded floor.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a quality finish isn't required. This classification allows for a maximium deviation depth of 10mm.

It might also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. The assessment will ensure your new screeding is viable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the site survey. An assessment called the drop hammer test will be performed at several areas on the screed layer and the outcomes noted. The precise testing and measurement tools mean this can only be conducted by a certified structural engineer respecting the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Floor Screed Llanelli

When the make-up of your floor's surface means that a certain amount of flexibility is necessary, it will be an advantage to use a latex self-levelling floor screed, rather than one with a more rigid finish. Latex screeds come in 2 parts - a bottle and a bag - with the bottle containing liquid latex and the bag containing a cement powder. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed, as the water that's normally used is replaced with the liquid latex.

Prior to the installation of the final decorative surface, this latex product is used for levelling-out subfloors. Giving a durable and smooth surface that is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives, this screeding is is appropriate for use on subfloors of quarry tiles, wood, asphalt, concrete and sand/cement. Even if there happens to be a bit of movement in your subfloor, this type of latex floor screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish.

With "floating" screeds, for example when a screed is being laid over a layer of thermal or acoustic insulation, latex screeds will not be appropriate. Floating screeds with a thickness of 50 to 65 millimetres are usually used on top of underfloor heating.
