FLOOR SCREEDING CONTRACTORS MORPETH

Whatever size or shape of room you are renovating, a screeding specialist in Morpeth can provide you with the experience and correct working methods to establish a perfect base for your floors. They will be able to advise you on the correct sort of screed your project requires, and how best to apply and install it.

Floor Screeding Morpeth Northumberland (NE61)

It may be a requirement, contingent on the intended use of the area, for a survey by a structural engineer to abide by building regulations on flex strength, load requirements and point loadings of the screed floor.

Skilled and qualified tradesmen are imperative for a successful outcome and will extend your floor's lifespan by making use of the right sort of screed for the intended purpose of your room. A correct mix of screed and the methods used for laying it are also critical to ensure the final intergrity of your floor.

Make certain you get more than one estimate for your Morpeth screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting a quote. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to keep your eye on when receiving a quotation from Morpeth screeding companies. SR2 and SR3 will be more affordable options, however the floor screeding finish may have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect finish. Any error in the screeding can cause issues with laying flooring owing to flat spots, ridges, indentations in the surface.

The regulations and guidelines laid down in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by all Morpeth floor screeding contractors and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete etc.) to demonstrate their competence and safe working practices. The training and assessment of a screeding company by such manufacturers is emphasised through this accreditation scheme, and guarantees reliability and safe working practices on any flooring project involving their materials.

Morpeth commercial screeders may be involved in the screeding of floors in schools, shops, salons, factories, warehouses and hospitals.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is ideal for normal residential usage and is a blend of cement and sand. The ratios involved in standard screeds are five parts sand to one part cement. This 5:1 ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of one millimetre per day after laying.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is required this formula of latex and cement is employed to create SR1 quality screed flooring. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all forms of flooring materials to be laid. Even with a depth of 1mm, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength screed for a variety of uses.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use on top of underfloor heating. The improved strength and flexibility offered by the fibres within this screed mix help protect the resulting floor from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. At around one millimetre per day, it has a similar drying rate to standard floor screed.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area in question as soon as possible a fast drying screed can be employed. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are suitable for a wide array of flooring projects where the swifter curing rate of 3-7mm/day is a big advantage.

Polymer Screeds - Provides a high level of strength with a lower thickness. Due to their different chemical compositions, polymer screeds have varying curing times which can be verified by viewing manufacturer's own product guidelines.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish that's hard wearing and durable, time must be spent on carefully preparing the area prior to any screed being laid. It is important that all contaminants such as debris, oil, grease or paint is eradicated from the base before pouring any screed, as these can affect the adhesion process that a good quality floor screed needs.

Screeding Near Morpeth (NE61)

Any cleansing chemicals which are used in this process shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry out naturally. It is essential to mend any crevices or cracks in the base to prevent them being visible and "travelling" upwards into the newly screeded floor. During an on-site survey your Morpeth screeding specialist will establish what preparations are required before starting to work on the screeding.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be applied once the preparation work has been finished to stop ground dampness affecting the screeding and floor materials. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene may be used as a DPM and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation material.

If your home is situated in an area where radon gas is present an additional barrier layer is essential to stop radon gas from entering. If radon gas occurs in large amounts then a full ventilation and extraction system may be installed beneath the screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from the ground.

As soon as the base has been prepared and any DPMs installed, a sealant or primer is then put on. These sealers and primers will ensure the screed bonds successfully to the floor base and help to produce a top quality finished floor. These substances need trained tradesmen to apply them in the correct ratios by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.

Before any screed can be laid, any under floor heating (if required) will now be installed. The cables and heating pipes are securely attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement and make sure that they are laid in the correct position. When skillfully installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and high quality screeding retains its heat, producing an even level of warmth right across the floor.

If you aren't putting in underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared in situ and poured. The specific requirements of the room will dictate the kind of screeding used. After the application of the screed there'll be a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you're able to walk over the surface, and a seventy two hours minimum curing time before any floor covering installation. Such time periods will be increased for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's product guidelines should be followed to the letter to produce the optimal finish and durability of the floor.

The SR standard of your screeding can be verified once it has set sufficiently to be walked on. The basic SR test involves the use of a two metre straight edge to check for any variations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire screed area, if there aren't any deviations greater than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - If the screeded surface deviates from the straight edge by 5 millimetres or less it is considered SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the finish is relatively immaterial SR3 is the specification and has a deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

There might also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to perform a soundness test. Using specialist equipment the engineer will establish the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. The screeding could be subjected to what's known as a "drop hammer test" to determine strength and flexibility in distinct areas. Only qualified structural engineers following the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to carry out these tests and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.

Latex Floor Screed Morpeth

When the make-up of your floor's surface means that a degree of flexibility is required, it will be advantageous to apply a latex screeding, rather than one with a rigid finish. Latex floor screeds come in 2 parts - a bag and a bottle - with the bottle containing liquid latex and the bag containing a cement based compound. Where water is normally used in a screed mix, this is replaced with the liquid latex, meaning it's quicker drying and more flexible than other standard screeds.

This latex screed is used to level a sub-floor prior to the final decorative surface being installed. This screeding is appropriate for sub-floors made of stone tiles, sand/cement, concrete, wood or asphalt, is perfect for the application of adhesives and gives a smooth, durable surface. If there happens to be a bit of movement in the sub-floor this latex floor screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish on which you can lay your final floor coverings.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screeding is being laid on the top of underfloor heating, thicknesses of 50mm-65mm may be needed, and latex floor screeds are not a suitable choice for this purpose.
