The screeding contractor will also tell you if a structural engineer is needed for your undertaking, to evaluate point loadings, flex strength and load requirements that your screed floor might need to conform with British Standards and building regulations.

Skilled and qualified workers are imperative for a successful result and will extend your floor's lifespan by using the right sort of screed for your room's allocated purpose. There are many kinds of screed and selecting the correct mix and laying method is vital to create a high quality floor that is long-lasting and fit for purpose.

Before choosing a screeding specialist from any operating in the Midhurst area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their estimate, and also make sure that you get multiple quotes. For residential homes a quote will generally be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) calculation of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the best level, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may seem less costly initially, they do not guarantee a totally even or flat floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there are flat spots or ridges that might cause problems when putting down your final flooring surface (tile, wood, carpet etc).

British Standards BS8204 lays out the regulations and guidelines that all Midhurst screeding installers must follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc), they should be certified by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. The assessment and training of a floor screeding company by a manufacturer is highlighted through the accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any project which involves their materials.

For larger floor screeding projects in restaurants, shops, hospitals, factories, schools and warehouses, dedicated Midhurst commercial screeders will be needed.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is acceptable for basic domestic use and comprises a mixture of sand and cement. This mixture uses a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. This five to one ratio standard flooring screed will set hard at a rate of just one millimetre per day after laying.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is needed. Polymer screeds are made by many manufacturers and because of their diverse chemical compositions have distinct drying times for each individual product.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum durability and strength on floors where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor is needed.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries at a quicker rate and allows you to use the floor area much sooner. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, subject to the mixture, they are typically a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are great for projects that have tight schedules.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option for professionals where under floor heating is being installed in domestic properties in Midhurst. The greater flex and strength offered by the special fibres within this screed mix help protect the resulting floor from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement formula which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all flooring materials to be laid. Even with a depth of only 1mm, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength screed for a variety of uses.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will need to fully prepare all areas before proceeding with any other work so as to guarantee a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The original floor surface should be cleaned to remove any debris, paint, grease and oil which might affect the bond of the screeding.

Screeding Near Midhurst (GU29)

If cleansing products have been used it is crucial to remove any residues of soap or detergent, and allow the surface to dry naturally. It's essential to fix any crevices or cracks in the base to avoid them being reflected and "travelling" up into your freshly screeded floor. An on-site survey will enable the screeding installer to identify this preparation work and finish it before starting to lay the screeding.

Before any screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be put down to shield the final flooring and screed from dampness. Different thicknesses of special polythene may be used as a DPM and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation material.

An additional air-tight barrier could be required if your home is in an area that's regarded as susceptible to radon. This can be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in severe cases an extraction and ventilation system is installed underneath the screed to extract any influx of air and gas from ground level.

Once the base has been prepared and all membranes installed, a primer or sealer is then applied. Primers help the bonding process and are special applications according to the kind of screed that is being applied. Devices such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by experienced screeding companies in Midhurst observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

If you are going to be installing under floor heating, now is the time that it will need to be set out and installed. The wires and heating pipes are securely mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement and make certain that they are positioned correctly. When professionally installed an under floor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and decent quality screeding will retain its heat, generating an even level of warmth right across the floor.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared on site and spread onto the base. Your screeding company will have given you advice and guidance on which screed type is suitable for your needs, in line with your intended use of the room area. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least twenty four hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 3 days minimum before you are able to install any flooring materials. This timescale is increased for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to accomplish the optimal finish and longevity of the floor.

As soon as the screed has hardened it can be checked for quality to determine the SR level. The test involves using a 2 metre long straight-edge laid down upon the floor surface and any variations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest level and allows only 3mm of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10 millimetres or less the screed quality is classified as SR3 and is the standard required for utility and garage areas.

It may also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to perform a soundness test. The assessment will make sure that your newly laid screed surface is viable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the site survey. This can include a drop hammer test which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Any screed flooring that has point load requirements must be okayed by a trained structural engineer observing the BS8204 regulations.

Latex Floor Screed Midhurst

When a floor's surface needs a certain amount of flexibility, it is better to use a latex self-levelling screeding. Latex floor screeds normally comprise 2 parts - a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex additive. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds, because the water that is normally used is replaced with the latex liquid.

This latex compound is used for levelling subfloors in advance of the laying of the final decorative surface. Giving a smooth and resilient surface which is perfect for the application of flooring adhesives, this screed is is appropriate for use on substrate of wood, asphalt, sand/cement, stone tiles and concrete. If there is any movement in the sub-floor this type of latex screeding will give you a crack-free, flexible finish on which you can lay your chosen floor coverings.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, screed depths of 50mm-75mm may be required, and latex floor screeds aren't appropriate for this purpose.
