Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use on top of under floor heating. The fibres in the screed mix improve it's durability and strength whilst also safeguarding against thermal cracking and shrinkage. It has a setting rate of one millimetre per day.

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

Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a lower thickness. Polymer screeds are available from a number of manufacturers and because of their different chemical compositions have distinct setting times for each product.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement formula.

Good preparation is essential for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. It's vital that any contaminants such as oil, grease, paint or debris is removed from the floor before pouring any screed, because these can affect the bonding capability that a good quality floor screed requires.

Screeding Near Middleton-on-Sea (PO22)

If cleansing products were used it is essential to remove any traces of soap etc, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. It is vital to mend any cracks in the floor surface to avoid them being reflected and "travelling" up into your freshly screeded floor. During an on-site survey your Middleton-on-Sea screeding installer will ascertain what preparations are required before starting to work on the screeding.

To protect the screeding layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed. There could be two or three layers of varying thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

If your home is situated in a place where radon gas is found a supplementary barrier layer is needed to prevent radon gas from getting through. This could be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in more serious cases a ventilation and extraction system will be installed under the screeding to take away any inflow of air and gas from the ground.

Once the floor base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealant or primer is then put on. A primer helps with the screed to bond to the base and different types exist based on which kind of screed is being used. Owing to their special nature, only experienced screeding specialists in Middleton-on-Sea should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and using equipment which is made for the task.

Before the screeding can be laid, any under floor heating will now set out and installed. Insulation panels can be put in position and the heating pipes and cables will be firmly fastened to prevent any movement while the screed is being poured. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in a properly fitted underfloor heating system, and along with it being an effective choice of heating, it is an ideal choice for the majority of Middleton-on-Sea renovation projects.

Needless to say, if you're not putting in underfloor heating, you simply skip this stage and get on with applying the screed. Your intended use of the room will help the screeding company on what form of floor screed is appropriate for your needs. Remember that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk on any laid surface and a minimum seventy two hours before any floor coverings can be applied. If you're aiming to end up with a properly finished and hard-wearing floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where the timescale will be increased.

As soon as the screeding has set it can be checked for quality to confirm the SR level. The test involves using a 2 metre straight edge laid down upon the surface and any deviations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the whole screed area, if there aren't any disparities greater than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5 millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is relatively immaterial SR3 is the classification and should have a deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to conduct the testing. The testing will make sure that your newly laid screed is viable for the load bearing requirements set down in the site survey. The screed layer will be given a "drop hammer test" to gauge flexibility and strength in distinct areas. Any screed flooring that's got load bearing requirements must be approved by a competent structural engineer following the British Standards BS8204 regulations.

Latex Screeds Middleton-on-Sea

When the surface of a floor needs a bit of flexibility, it might be wise to use a latex self-levelling screeding. Latex floor screeds normally comprise two parts - a cementitious powder and a liquid latex mixture. The latex liquid solution actually replaces the water that would typically be used in a screed mix, and is far more flexible and quicker drying 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 resilient, smooth surface which is ideal for the application of adhesives, this is is suitable for use on sub-floors of wood, sand/cement, concrete, asphalt and stone tiles. This latex floor screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there happens to be a bit of movement in your sub-floor.

When installing a "floating" screed, i.e. when a screed is being laid on top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, screed depths of 50-75mm may be needed, and latex flooring screeds are not suited to this purpose.
