Qualified and skilled tradesmen are imperative for a successful outcome and will extend the lifespan of your floor by making use of the right kind of screed for the intended purpose of your room. Choosing the appropriate screeding materials and the method of installation is vital if you want to end up with a quality and durable finish for your floor surface.

There are a number of screeding companies in and around Morley so see if you can get multiple price quotes for your floor screeding project before picking a contractor and know to what standard of finish is it for. For domestic properties a quote will generally be provided for a Surface Regularity (SR) standard of SR1 or SR2.

This could mean that you may have to correct any areas that could cause problems when laying your finished flooring material.

The guidelines and regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by any Morley floor screeding contractor and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc.) to substantiate their competence and safe working practices. The training and assessment of a floor screeding company by such manufacturers is underlined through this accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any screeding project which involves their materials.

Morley commercial screeders might be involved in the screeding of floors in shops, restaurants, factories, hospitals, schools and warehouses.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is acceptable for standard domestic usage and comprises a blend of sand and cement. The standard screed is a mix of five parts sand to one of cement. After being laid a standard screed sets at a rate of 1mm/day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement formula which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. Mostly used to finish off a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, like vinyl planks on the top of it. These can be as little as one millimetre thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use on top of under floor heating. The special fibres in this screed mix increase it's strength and durability whilst also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It dries out at an identical rate to a standard screed of 1mm per day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are high or heavy loading on the floor is required, heavy duty screeds offer maximum durability and strength.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to use the area at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed can be used. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are suitable for a whole host of flooring projects where the speedier drying rate of 3-7mm/day is a considerable advantage.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed due to building requirements, a polymer screed offers a high strength solution to this problem. The curing times for these vary according to product guidelines.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time must be spent on preparing the area before any screed is poured. The existing floor surface should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any oil, grease, debris and paint which might affect the bond of the screed.

Screeding Near Morley (LS27)

If any cleaning products were used in this process it is crucial to ensure that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. It's vital to mend any cracks in the floor surface to avoid them being mirrored and "travelling" up into your newly screeded floor. A trustworthy Morley screeding contractor will address these aspects during a site survey and ensure all preparations are completed before moving on to the next steps in the 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. The DPM is made out of thick polythene and different layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

An additional airtight barrier may be required if your house is in a location that is regarded as susceptible to radon gas emissions. If radon is present in severe doses then a complete ventilation system might be needed under the layer of screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from the ground.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeders will apply a sealant or primer to the prepared base. Sealers and primers help with the bonding process and are special applications matched to the sort of screed being applied. These products need certified technicians to apply them in the correct ratios by using bespoke equipment, such as airless sprays.

Before any screed is poured, any under floor heating (if required) will now set out and installed. The cabling and heating pipes are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure that they're laid in the correct position. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and an expertly installed system will give an even level of warmth across the floor area.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured onto the base surface. Your screeding company will have given you advice on which sort of screed is best for your requirements, according to your intended use of the room. For advanced and quick drying screeds there will be at least 24 hours delay before it can be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before you are able to install any flooring materials. If you are looking to wind up with a well finished and long-lasting floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where the timescale will be increased.

You can assess the SR standard of the completed screed once it's set enough to walk on. The standard SR test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there are no disparities of more than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is fairly inconsequential SR3 is the specification and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

There may also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will assess the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. This will include what is known as a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. The precise testing and measurement tools required mean that this can only be conducted by a fully qualified structural engineer respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeding Morley

When a floor's surface needs a level of flexibility, it might be best to use a latex self-levelling screed. Latex screeds come in 2 parts - a bag and a bottle - with the bottle containing liquid latex and the bag containing a cemetitious powder. The latex liquid solution takes the place of the water which is used in normal screeds, making it quicker drying and more flexible.

Prior to the laying of the final decorative covering, this latex compound is used for levelling-out subfloors. This is appropriate for sub-floors made of asphalt, wood, concrete, stone tiles or sand/cement, is perfect for the application of adhesives and gives a smooth, resilient surface. If your subfloor has any movement in it, this type of latex screed will still give you a crack-free, flexible finish, on which your final floor coverings can be laid.

With "floating" screeds, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid over a membrane of acoustic or thermal insulation, latex flooring screeds will not be suitable. Floating screeds with a depth of 50mm-75mm are usually used over underfloor heating. (Tags: Latex Screed Morley, Latex Screeds Morley, Latex Floor Screed Morley, Latex Screeding Morley).
