It might be a requirement, according to the intended use of the room, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform with building regulations on flex strength, load bearing and point loadings of the screed floor.

Working with a highly trained and skilled flooring specialist will guarantee you get the right kind of screed for the room's proposed purpose and get the optimum lifespan out of your floor. There are many different kinds of floor screed and choosing the right mix and laying process is crucial if you are to create a top quality floor that is both hard-wearing and fit for purpose.

Before deciding upon a screeding specialist from the many based in the Merthyr Tydfil area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their quotation, and also ensure that you get multiple quotations from different contractors. The estimate could be based on what is called the SR, or Surface Regularity number. Each of the three SR levels deliver different standards of finish, with SR1 offering the highest, with the least amount of deviation over the area of the floor. Any error in the screeding (as might arise with SR2 or SR3) can cause problems in laying flooring owing to indentations, flat spots, ridges in the surface.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is okay for normal domestic usage and comprises a mix of sand and cement. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the typical mix for standard flooring screeds. After being laid a standard flooring screed dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

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

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex formula which can achieve the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. Largely used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, such as tiles over it. Even with a depth of only one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favourite choice of professional contractors for use with under floor heating systems. The special fibres in this screed mix increase overall strength and durability while also protecting against thermal cracking and shrinkage. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced thickness is essential. Maker's guidelines for setting times differ across the various product ranges.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to progress urgently with the work because of time restraints, these screeds dry much quicker than standard flooring screeds. The vast majority of the fast drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are perfect for a whole host of projects where the faster curing rate of three to seven millimetres is advantageous.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Good preparation is vital for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. Any paint, oil, debris and grease on the existing floor surface can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and must be eliminated.

Screeding Near Merthyr Tydfil (CF47)

Any cleansing products which are used in this phase should leave no residues, and the floor surface must be allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor then all cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" up through a screed layer and producing imperfections on the final surface. A reputable Merthyr Tydfil screeding specialist will take note of such aspects during a site survey and ensure all preparations are finished before pressing on with the next steps in the floor screeding process.

Before any screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed to shield the screed and final flooring from moisture. Different thicknesses of polythene sheets could be used as a damp proof membrane and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation materials.

A further airtight barrier could be required if your home is in an area that is regarded as prone to radon gas. A simple air-tight membrane may be sufficient in places with low radon measurements, however in more serious cases there might need to be a more complicated extraction and ventilation system to block any ground penetrating radon gas.

The final step of the surface preparation process is the spraying or painting of a sealant or primer. These primers and sealers will make certain that the screed bonds properly to the floor base and help create a high quality finished floor. These materials need experienced tradesmen to apply them in the appropriate ratios by using bespoke equipment, such as airless sprays.

Before the screeding can be poured, any underfloor heating (if required) will now be laid out. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and mounted firmly on insulation panels to prevent any movement during screed installation process. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in a properly installed under floor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's a good choice for the majority of Merthyr Tydfil renovation projects.

If you're not installing under floor heating the screed will now be prepared on site and poured. Your intended use of the room will assist your screeding contractor on what form of screed is best for your needs. For quick drying screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further seventy two hours minimum before you can lay any flooring materials. If you're laying standard or heavy duty screeds the curing time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be adhered to so as to get the best possible finish for your floor.

As soon as the screed has set it can be checked for quality to ascertain its SR level. The basic SR test uses a 2m long straight-edge to check for any variations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest standard and permits only three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the whole floor surface.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is ten millimetres or less the screed quality is specified as SR3 and is the standard required for utility and garage areas.

If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is needed to carry out the testing. This test will determine the overall strength of the screeded surface and its viability for the proposed use. An assessment called the drop hammer test will be carried out on various areas of the screed layer and the results recorded. The precise testing and measurement tools required mean this can only be carried out by a qualified structural engineer following the guidelines of BS8204.

Latex Screed Merthyr Tydfil

When a bit of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface you might find that the application of a latex self-levelling screeding will be best. Latex floor screeds normally comprise two parts - a cement-based smoothing compound, and a liquid latex mixture. Where water is normally used in a screed mix, this is replaced with the latex liquid, making it quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

This latex screed product is used to level a sub-floor before the final decorative surface is installed. Producing a smooth, durable surface that's ideal for the application of adhesives, this screeding is is suitable for use on sub-floors of quarry tiles, wood, concrete, asphalt and sand/cement. If there is any movement in the sub-floor this latex screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish on which to lay your final floor coverings.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screeding is being laid over the top of underfloor heating, thicknesses of 50mm-65mm may be desirable, and latex flooring screeds aren't appropriate in this instance.
