The guidelines and regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 must be followed by all Minster-on-Sea floor screeding companies and they must also be approved by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc.) to substantiate their safe working practices and competence. The training and testing of a floor screeding company by such manufacturers is emphasised through the accreditation scheme, and guarantees reliability and safe working practices on any flooring project which involves their materials.

For the screeding of floors in warehouses, shopping centres, schools, factories, hospitals and hotels, dedicated Minster-on-Sea commercial screeders will be required.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A combination of cement and sand which is okay for standard domestic usage. This mixture uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. Once laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of 1mm each day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this mixture of latex and cement is used to achieve SR1 level screeding. This is primarily needed to provide a smooth, clean floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. This liquid screed can be poured to a depth of just one millimetre, but still provides a high strength surface to take a selection of flooring materials.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use over the top of underfloor heating. This is due to the improved strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the fibres within the screed. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is necessary on account of construction factors, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength resolution to this situation. The curing times vary as outlined by product guidelines.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to progress urgently with the work on account of time restraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard flooring screeds. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are ideal for a whole host of flooring projects where the speedier drying rate of 3-7mm is an advantage.

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

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Preparation is crucial for a top quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The existing floor surface should be cleaned to remove any oil, paint, grease and debris which can adversely affect the bond of the screeding.

Screeding Near Minster-on-Sea (ME12)

If cleaning products were used it's vital to remove any traces of detergent or soap, and leave the surface to dry naturally. At this stage any cracks should be repaired since these can travel up through the newly laid screed and be reflected in the finished floor surface. A competent Minster-on-Sea screeding company will pick up on these issues during the site survey and make certain that all preparations are finished before moving on to the next stages of the screeding process.

To protect the flooring materials and screed layer from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed. The DPM is made of thick polythene sheet and various layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

An additional airtight barrier could be necessary if your building is in a location that is known to be susceptible to radon gas. If radon gas occurs in large amounts then a complete extraction and ventilation system might be needed under the screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from ground level.

Once the base has been prepared and any DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then applied. Primers assist with the bonding process and are special applications matched to the kind of screed that is being applied. These products require trained contractors to apply them in the right proportions by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

If you are installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be correctly set out and installed. Insulation panels will be positioned and the heating pipes and wires will be securely mounted so there's no movement while the screed is applied. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should provide even level of warmth across the floor area.

Floor Screed Minster-on-Sea (01795)

Naturally, if you're not installing under floor heating, you simply ignore this stage and apply the screeding. Your screeding company will give you guidance and advice on which screed type is appropriate for your needs, according to your proposed use of the room. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least twenty four hours delay before it can be walked over, and a further Three days minimum before you can lay any flooring materials. If you're looking to wind up with a well finished and durable floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to standard and heavy duty screeds where this time period will be increased.

The SR level of your screeding can be verified once it's hardened enough to be walked on. The standard SR test uses a 2m straight edge to check for any variations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best specification and permits just 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the entire floor surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect finish is not needed. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10 millimetres.

If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is necessary to perform the tests. The assessment will ensure your newly laid screed surface is viable for the load point requirements set down in the original site survey. The screed could be subjected to what is known as a drop hammer test to gauge strength and flexibility at specific points. Only trained structural engineers respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are allowed to carry out such testing and sign off on the structural safety of the screeding.
