This liquid screed can be poured to a depth of only 1mm, but still provides a high strength surface for a wide range of flooring finishes.

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

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is necessary because of building factors, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to this problem. Manufacturer's guidelines for drying times vary across the product ranges.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to use the floor at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed can be utilised.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish that's hard wearing and durable, time must be devoted to carefully preparing the area before any screed is poured. Any debris, paint, grease and oil on the original floor surface can affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be removed.

If any 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 surface and it is allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and resulting in deviations on the final floor surface. A skilled Lymington screeding company will take note of such aspects during a site survey and make sure that all preparations are complete before moving on to the next steps in the screeding process.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down once the preparation work has been completed to stop ground dampness affecting the flooring materials and screed. There might be 2 or 3 layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If your property is situated in a place where radon is found a supplementary barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from seeping through. If radon occurs in large amounts then a full extraction and ventilation system may be installed beneath the screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from the ground.

Once these stages have been completed the screeding company will apply a primer or sealer to the prepared floor base. Sealers and primers assist with the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the kind of screed that is being applied. These substances require experienced technicians to apply them in the correct ratios by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before the screed is poured. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and attached firmly to insulation panels to prevent any movement in the course of the screed pouring. When skillfully installed an under floor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and top quality screed retains its heat, producing an even level of warmth right across the floor surface.

The screeding can now be prepared on site and spread onto the base. The requirements of the room will determine the sort of screeding that is used. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least a 24 hour delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before any flooring material can be applied. If you're laying standard or heavy duty screeds the curing time is increased and you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best finish to your floor.

You can assess the SR standard of the completed screed once it's hard enough for walking on. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 metre straight edge to check for any variations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire screed area, if there aren't any deviations greater than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you've got a top specification SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the entire screeded surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish isn't required. This level allows for a maximium deviation depth of 10mm.

If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is required to conduct the tests. The assessment will make certain that your new screeding is viable for the load point requirements laid out in the site survey. This will include a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. Any screed floor that's got point load requirements must be sanctioned by a qualified structural engineer following the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screeds Lymington

When a level of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor you may find that the employment of a latex self-levelling screeding will be an advantage. Generally coming in 2 parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cementitious powder and a latex liquid component. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the liquid latex, meaning it's quicker drying and more flexible than other standard screeds.

Used in the levelling-out of subfloors, this latex product creates a surface for the laying of your chosen floor finishes. Providing a smooth and resilient surface that's ideal for the application of adhesives, this is is appropriate for use on sub-floors of concrete, sand/cement, asphalt, stone tiles and wood. This type of floor screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there's movement in your subfloor.

With a "floating" screed, for instance when a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of thermal or acoustic insulation, latex screeds won't be appropriate. Floating screeds with a thickness of 50 to 75 millimetres are normally used over underfloor heating.
