Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When a high standard of finish is needed this mix of of latex and cement is used to achieve SR1 level floor screeding. Mainly used to finalise a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like tiling on the top of it.

Preparation is crucial for a top quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. It is important that all contaminants such as paint, loose debris, oil or grease is eliminated from the floor surface before pouring any screed, because these can affect the adhesion capability that a quality screed requires.

If cleaning products were used it is essential to remove any traces of soap etc, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. At this point cracks need to be repaired because these can easily travel up through the laid screed and be visible in the completed floor surface. A site survey will enable your Much Wenlock screeding installer to identify this preparation work and finish it before commencing to apply the screed layer.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be put down after the preparation work has been finished to prevent ground dampness affecting the flooring materials and screed. Different thicknesses of polythene sheets may be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation materials.

If your house is located in an area where radon gas is found an additional barrier layer is needed to prevent radon gas from seeping through. This can be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in more serious instances a ventilation and extraction system will be installed under the floor screed to draw out any inflow of air and gas from ground level.

Once the base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a sealant or primer is then put on. A primer assists in the screed bonding correctly to the base and different varieties exist based upon which screed type is being used. These materials require experienced tradesmen to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using custom-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Before the screeding can be laid, any under floor heating will now be installed. The heating pipes and cabling are firmly attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure that they are held in the correct position. Warmth will be evenly spread across the floor in a professionally installed underfloor heating system, and coupled with it being an effective method of heating, it's a great choice for many Much Wenlock home renovation projects.

The screeding can now be prepared on site and poured onto the base surface. The specific requirements of the room will determine the type of screeding that's used. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least a twenty four hour delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 72 hours minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. If you are laying standard or heavy duty screeds the drying time is increased and you must observe the manufacturer's guidelines so as to get the best possible finish to your floor.

Once the screed has set it can be quality checked to confirm its SR level. The test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge laid on the surface and any fluctuations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3mm or less as measured across the whole floor area shows your screed to be of the best quality and categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is categorised as SR3 and is highly suitable for garage and utility areas.

If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is required to carry out the testing. The assessment will ensure your newly laid screeding is viable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the site survey. The screed layer could be given what is known as a drop hammer test to determine strength and flexibility in different areas. The specialist measurement and testing tools needed mean this can only be carried out by a competent structural engineer following the guidelines of BS8204.

Latex Screeding Much Wenlock

When the make-up of your floor's surface means that a certain amount of flexibility is necessary, it may be best to use a latex self-levelling screeding, rather than one with a more rigid finish. Latex screeds come in 2 parts - a bag and a bottle - with the bottle containing latex liquid and the bag containing a cement powder. The latex liquid additive replaces the water which would typically be used in a screed mix, and is much more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed.

Before the installation of the final decorative surface, this latex compound is used for levelling subfloors. Suitable for substrate of concrete, sand/cement, wood, stone tiles and asphalt, this screed gives a perfect surface for the application of adhesives that's smooth and resilient. If there happens to be any movement in the subfloor this type of latex floor screed will provide a flexible, crack-free finish on which to lay your final floor coverings.

With a "floating" screed, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of acoustic or thermal insulation, latex screeds won't be suitable. Floating screeds with a thickness of 50-75mm are normally used over underfloor heating.
