Your screeding company will also notify you if a structural engineer is required for your project, in order to identify point loadings, flex strength and load requirements that your flooring might need to conform with British Standards and building regulations.

Working with a qualified and highly trained flooring specialist will ensure you use the correct kind of screed for the room's proposed purpose and get the optimum lifespan out of the resulting flooring. A correct blend of screed and the techniques used for laying it are also critical to ensure the ultimate quality of your floor.

Before choosing a screeding contractor from those operating in the Neath area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their quotation, and also make sure that you get multiple quotations. The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the figure to look for when reviewing a quotation from Neath floor screeding companies. Each of the 3 SR levels offer different standards of finish, with SR1 offering the highest quality, with the smallest amount of deviation over the surface area. This means that you may need to rectify any areas that may cause problems when laying your final flooring material.

British Standards BS8204 sets down the regulations and guidelines that all Neath screeding installers are required to follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc), they must be accredited by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. A contractor holding accreditation shows that they've been assessed and trained in using these products and can offer a top notch service in all aspects of their installation.

For larger floor screeding projects in boutiques, warehouses, shops, factories, schools and hospitals, skilled commercial screeders in Neath will be required.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is good for normal residential use and comprises a combination of sand and cement. This mixture uses a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. This five to one ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of one millimetre per day after application.

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

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

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to move forward urgently with the work because of time limitations, these screeds dry much quicker than standard flooring screeds. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, determined by the mixture, they're usually a fibre reinforced type of screed and are great for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.

Polymer Screeds - These provide an extremely high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Manufacturer's guidelines for setting times vary across the product ranges.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional contractors for use in combination with under floor heating systems. The greater strength and flex offered by the fibres in the screed help protect the floor from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. It sets at an identical rate to a standard screed of 1mm per day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will have to prepare the area prior to any other work so as to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any oil, paint, debris and grease on the original floor level can affect the bonding of the screed, and should be eliminated.

Any cleaning products that are used in this stage should leave no residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. It's vital to mend any cracks or crevices in the surface to stop them being mirrored and "travelling" up into the newly screeded floor. A professional Neath screeding company will pick up on such issues during the on-site survey and ensure that all preparations are finished before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be applied once the preparation work has been completed to prevent ground dampness affecting the flooring materials and screed. There may be two or three layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

If your house is situated in an area where radon gas is present a supplementary barrier layer is required to prevent radon gas from getting through. If radon occurs in large amounts then a complete ventilation and extraction system may be installed under the screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from the ground.

Once these steps have been taken the screeding company will put on a sealer or primer to the prepared base surface. These primers and sealers will guarantee the screed bonds successfully to the base surface and help accomplish a good quality finished floor. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a sealant or primer, by professional screeding installers in Neath observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

If you are installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be laid out and installed. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and firmly mounted on insulation panels to avoid any movement in the course of the screed installation process. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system should produce even warmth in all areas of the floor.

If you are not fitting under floor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared on site and poured. Your screeding specialist will have given you advice on which kind of screed is suitable for your requirements, in line with your proposed use of the room area. Don't forget that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk on any screeded surfaces and a minimum 72 hours before any flooring materials can be applied. Such timescales will be longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to the letter to accomplish the optimal finish and longevity of the floor.

The SR standard of your screed can be verified once it's set sufficiently to be stepped onto. The standard SR test uses a 2 metre straight edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire screed area, if there aren't any disparities greater than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you've got a top level SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the entire screeded floor.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is relatively immaterial the SR3 is the classification and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If you require load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to carry out the tests. This assessment will establish the strength of the screed surface and its viability for the intended use. The screed should be subjected to what is known as a "drop hammer test" to assess flexibility and strength in various areas. Any screed floor that has load bearing requirements must be sanctioned by a fully qualified structural engineer following the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screeds Neath

It is better to use a latex screed when a degree of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor. Generally coming in 2 parts, latex screeds comprise a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex mixture. The latex liquid additive replaces the water that's used in normal screeds, making it more flexible and quicker drying.

Prior to the laying of the final decorative surface, this latex product is used for levelling sub-floors. This is suitable for substrate made of sand/cement, wood, stone tiles, asphalt or concrete, is perfect for the application of adhesives and gives a durable and smooth surface. If there happens to be any movement in the subfloor this type of latex screed will produce a flexible, crack-free finish on which to lay your chosen floor coverings.

With "floating" screeds, for example when a screed is being laid on top of a membrane of either thermal or acoustic insulation, latex floor screeds won't be appropriate. Floating screeds with a thickness of 50-65mm are typically used on top of underfloor heating.
