The screeding specialist will also let you know if a structural engineer is necessary for your undertaking, to identify any load bearing, flex strength and point loadings that your flooring may need to conform with current British Standards and building regulations.

The training and skills that a screeding specialist brings to your project will guarantee a high quality outcome and help in extending the life of your floor. There are many different kinds of screeding and choosing the appropriate mix and laying method is critical to achieve a high quality floor which is long-lasting and fit for purpose.

Make certain that you get at least 2 or 3 estimates for your Malvern based screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each quote is for. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to look for when receiving a quote from Malvern floor screeding contractors. SR1 is the best standard, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may seem more cost-effective initially, they do not guarantee a totally even or flat floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 standard might mean there will be ridges or flat spots that may cause issues when putting down your final flooring materials.

British Standards BS8204 lays down the guidelines and regulations that all Malvern screeding companies are required to follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete etc), they must be certified by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. A company holding such accreditation proves that they have been trained and assessed in using these products and can offer a high quality standard in all areas of their installation.

For larger floor screeding projects in warehouses, hospitals, shopping centres, factories, restaurants and schools, skilled commercial screeders in Malvern will be needed.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A mix of cement and sand which is perfect for regular domestic use. The ratios involved are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of 1mm per day.

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

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex compound. Primarily used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level so as to lay a new flooring surface, like vinyl planks over the top of it. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is necessary on account of building requirements, a polymer screed offers a high strength solution to this problem. The curing times vary in accordance with proprietary product guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with under floor heating and is the advised option in such projects. The greater strength and flex offered by the special fibres within this screed help protect the flooring from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. At roughly 1mm per day, it has the same setting rate to standard screed.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry quickly and allow you to use the floor area much faster. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm/day, determined by the mix, they are typically a fibre reinforced type of screed and are great for flooring projects that have tight schedules.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Preparation is crucial for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. It is important that any contaminants such as loose debris, paint, grease or oil is eradicated from the floor surface before laying any screed, because these can affect the adhesion process that a good quality floor screed requires.

If any cleaning products were used during this stage it is important to make sure that no residues of soaps or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. At this stage any cracks should be mended since these can easily travel up through your newly laid screed and be reflected in the completed floor surface. During an on-site survey your Malvern screeding contractor will ascertain what preparation work is necessary before starting to work on the actual screeding.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be applied after the preparation work has been concluded to prevent ground dampness getting into the screeding and floor materials. There could be two or three layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.

A supplementary air-tight barrier may be required if your home or business premises is in a location that is known to be prone to radon. A simple airtight membrane may be sufficient in places with relatively low levels of radon, but in more extreme cases there might need to be a more complex ventilation and extraction system to block any harmful radon gases.

As soon as the floor base has been properly prepared and any DPMs installed, a primer or sealer is then applied. A primer assists in the screed to bond successfully to the base and membranes and different types exist depending on which kind of screed is being applied. On account of their specialist nature, only skilled screeding specialists in Malvern should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and using bespoke equipment for this task.

Under floor heating can now be installed and tested before the screed is applied. Insulation panels will be arranged and the heating pipes and wires will be securely attached to prevent any movement while the screed is poured. When properly installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm up a room and decent quality screeding retains its heat, producing an even level of warmth right across the floor surface.

The screeding can now be prepared in situ and poured onto the floor base. Your screeding specialist will give you advice on which screed type is best for your requirements, in line with your intended use of the room area. After the pouring of the screed there'll be a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying screeds) before you are able to walk over the surface, and a 72 hours minimum curing period for any floor material installations. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds must be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide an even and stable surface.

The SR standard of your screeding can be verified once it has hardened sufficiently to be walked upon. The standard SR test involves the use of a 2 mtr straight edge to check for any deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best quality and permits just 3mm of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10 millimetres or less the screeding quality is classified as SR3 and is fine for utility and garage areas.

There may also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to perform a soundness test. This assessment will establish the strength of the screeding and the suitability for its proposed use. This should include a drop hammer test which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. Any screed flooring that's got load bearing requirements must be approved by a competent structural engineer observing the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeding Malvern

When a level of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor you might find that using a latex self-levelling floor screed will be an advantage. Latex screeds come in two parts - a bottle and a bag - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cemetitious powder. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed, since the water which is normally used is replaced with the latex liquid.

This latex screed compound is used to level-out a sub-floor prior to the final decorative surface being installed. Suitable for sub-floors of asphalt, sand/cement, quarry tiles, concrete and wood, this screed gives the ideal surface for the application of flooring adhesives which is resilient and smooth. This type of screeding will produce a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there happens to be a bit of movement in your sub-floor.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid over the top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, screed depths of 50-65mm may be needed, and latex flooring screeds are not appropriate for this purpose.
