A professional screeding contractor will also tell you if a structural engineer is necessary for your project, in order to check on point loadings, load requirements and flex strength that your flooring may require to conform with current building regulations and British Standards.

The training and skills that a certified screeding contractor brings to your project should guarantee a high quality end result and help to prolong the life of your floor. The correct blend of screed and the way it is laid is also crucial to guarantee the final intergrity of your floor.

Make sure that you get at least 2 or 3 quotations for your Maltby based floor screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting a quote. For domestic properties an estimate will usually be given for an SR (Surface Regularity) calculation of SR1 or SR2. Each of the three SR levels offer different levels of finish, with SR1 offering the best, with the smallest amount of deviation over the area of the floor. This could mean that you might have to fix any areas that might cause issues when laying your finished flooring solution.

The guidelines and regulations set out in in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by all Maltby floor screeding contractors and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Gypsol, Flowcrete etc.) to confirm their competence and safe working practices. The training and testing of a floor screeding contractor by a manufacturer is highlighted by the use of the accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any flooring project which involves their materials.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Widely used in domestic projects where the mix of cement and sand is perfect for regular footfall usage. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the usual mix for standard flooring screeds. After being laid a standard screed dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a minimal thickness. The drying times vary in accordance with proprietary product guidelines.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is needed this solution of cement and latex is employed to create SR1 quality floor screeding. Mainly used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level in order to lay a new flooring surface, like tiles on the top of it. Even with a thickness of just 1mm, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to use the floor as quickly as possible a fast drying screed can be employed. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are perfect for a wide variety of flooring projects where the swifter curing rate of three to seven millimetres is advantageous.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional installers for use with underfloor heating systems. The fibres in the screed mix improve it's durability and strength while also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It dries at an identical rate to a standard screed, at about one millimetre per day.

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

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Good preparation is essential for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. The existing floor surface should be cleaned to remove any paint, debris, grease and oil that might adversely affect the bond of the screed.

Screeding Near Maltby (S66)

Any cleaning products that are used during this phase should leave no residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. At this point cracks should be repaired because these can easily travel up through your newly laid screed and be reflected in the finished surface. An on-site survey will enable the screeding company to pinpoint these preparation areas and finish them before commencing to lay the screeding.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be installed after the preparation work has been finished to prevent ground dampness affecting the flooring materials and screeding. There might be two or three layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.

Another air-tight barrier might be necessary if your house is in a location which is known to be susceptible to radon gas. An airtight membrane might be enough in areas with low levels of radon, but in more severe situations there might have to be a more complicated ventilation and extraction system to remove any ground penetrating radon gas.

Once the base has been prepared and all membranes installed, a sealer or primer is then applied. A primer helps with the screed bonding process to the base and membranes and different types exist depending on which screed type is being used. These materials require professional technicians to apply them in the correct proportions by using custom-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

If you are going to be installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be properly set out and installed. Insulation panels will be positioned and the cabling and heating pipes will be firmly fastened so that there is no movement whilst the screed is being poured. Warmth is spread evenly across a floor area in a professionally installed underfloor heating system, and coupled with it being an effective method of heating, it's a great choice for many Maltby home restoration projects.

Of course, if you are not fitting under floor heating, you can just bypass this stage and get on with applying the floor screed. Your intended use of the room will assist your screeding company on what form of floor screed is appropriate for your needs. Remember that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you are able to walk over any screeded surfaces and at least seventy two hours before any floor coverings can be applied. This timescale is longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to achieve the optimum finish and durability of the floor.

You can check the SR level of the completed screed as soon as it's solidified enough to walk on. Through the use of a 2m straight-edge the surface is examined for any ridges, dips and deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any deviations of more than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the whole screed.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is fairly inconsequential SR3 is the standard and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is needed to perform the testing. Using specialist equipment the engineer will assess the screeded surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. This should include what's known as a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. Any screed flooring that has load bearing requirements must be approved by a trained structural engineer observing the BS8204 regulations.
