Standard Screeds - This is perfect for basic domestic use and comprises a mixture of sand and cement. The ratios involved are five parts sand to one part cement. After being laid a standard flooring screed dries out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry quickly and allow you to use the floor area much sooner. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, subject to the mixture, they are generally a fibre reinforced screed and are ideal for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum durability and strength in places where traffic is expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is necessary.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are essential, by a cement and latex material. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all types of flooring materials to be laid. Even with a thickness of just one millimetre, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed on account of construction requirements, a polymer screed offers a high strength resolution to the situation. The curing times for these vary according to product guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with under floor heating and is the recommended option in such projects. The improved strength and flexibility provided by the special fibres within this screed mix help protect the resulting floor from thermal cracking and shrinkage. It sets at an identical rate to a standard screed, at about 1mm per day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will need to carefully prepare all areas prior to any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It's vital that all contaminants such as oil, paint, loose debris or grease is eradicated from the floor before laying any screed, since these can affect the bonding process that a quality screed requires.

Screeding Near Morpeth (NE61)

If cleaning products have been used it is essential to remove any remnants of soap etc, and allow the surface to dry naturally. It is necessary to fix any cracks in the base to avoid them being visible and "travelling" up into your freshly screeded floor. A decent Morpeth screeding specialist will address these issues during a site survey and make sure that all preparations are finished before moving on to the next stages of the screeding process.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed to protect the screed and final flooring from dampness. There might be two or three layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

Another air-tight barrier may be necessary if your house is in an area that is known to be prone to radon. If radon gas is present in severe doses then a full ventilation and extraction system might be needed underneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that might seep in from ground level.

Once these stages have been completed the screeders will put on a sealer or primer to the prepared base surface. Primers help the bonding process and are special applications according to the sort of screed being applied. Equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, by qualified screeding companies in Morpeth observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

If you are going to be installing under floor heating, now is the time that it will need to be laid out and installed. The cables and heating pipes are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure that they are laid in the correct position. Warmth is spread evenly across the floor in a professionally fitted underfloor heating system, and with it being an effective choice of heating, it's an excellent choice for most Morpeth home renovation projects.

Needless to say, if you're not installing underfloor heating, you simply bypass this step and apply the screeding. Your screeding contractor will give you guidance and advice on which form of screed is suitable for your needs, in line with your proposed use of the room. For quick drying screeds there will be at least a twenty four hour delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 3 days minimum before any flooring material can be applied. If you're hoping to wind up with a well finished and long-lasting floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where the timescale will be increased.

The SR standard of your screed can be checked once it's hardened sufficiently to be walked upon. Using a 2m straight-edge the surface is checked for any deviations, dips and ridges in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3mm or less being measured across the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and categorised as SR1.
  • 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 - For other floors where the quality of finish is fairly immaterial the SR3 is the standard and should have a deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

There may also be a requirement for a structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. This assessment will establish the overall strength of the screed surface and the suitability for its proposed use. The screed layer will be given what is known as a drop hammer test to assess strength and flexibility at various points. Only fully qualified structural engineers applying the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to carry out such testing and sign off on the structural safety of screed flooring.

Latex Screeding Morpeth

When the nature of your floor's surface means that a level of flexibility is needed, it will be best to use a latex self-levelling screed, rather than one with a more rigid finish. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cemetitious powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex mixture. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed, since the water that's normally used is substituted with the latex liquid.

This latex product is used for levelling-out sub-floors prior to the laying of the final decorative covering. This is suitable for substrate made from asphalt, sand/cement, concrete, quarry tiles or wood, is ideal for the application of adhesives and gives a smooth and durable surface. This latex screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there happens to be movement in your subfloor.

When a screed is being laid on top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex floor screeds are not suitable, because in this instance (typically when screeding over underfloor heating), you'll likely require a thickness of 50-75mm.
