TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A mixture of cement and sand which is ideal for regular domestic use. This mix comprises a 5 to 1 ratio of sand to cement. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of 1mm each day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use over the top of under floor heating. This is because of the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the fibres within the screed mix. It's got a setting rate of 1mm per day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A cement and latex mixture which can achieve the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. This is mostly used to provide a high quality floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a finish onto which all forms of flooring materials can be laid. Even with a thickness of 1mm, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to use the area ASAP a fast drying screed might be a good choice. The majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are suitable for a wide variety of flooring projects where the quicker drying rate of 3-7mm/day is advantageous.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where the maximum possible durability and strength is essential.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is necessary because of building requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength resolution to this situation. Polymer screeds are available from a number of manufacturers and because of their diverse chemical compositions have distinct curing times for each individual product.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will have to fully prepare the area before proceeding with any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It is crucial that all contaminants such as grease, paint, debris or oil is removed from the floor surface before pouring any screed, since these can affect the bonding process that a good quality floor screed requires.

Screeding Near Netherfield (NG4)

If cleansing products have been used it's essential to remove any traces of soap etc, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. It's essential to mend any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to stop them being mirrored and "travelling" up into your newly screeded floor. A site survey will enable your Netherfield screeding installer to identify this preparation work and finish it before starting to pour the screeding.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be applied after the preparation work has been finished to stop ground dampness getting into the screed and floor materials. The DPM is made from thick polythene and various layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

If your home is situated in an area where radon gas is found an extra barrier layer is essential to prevent radon gas from entering. A simple airtight membrane could be suitable in locations with relatively low levels of radon, however in more severe situations there might have to be a more complicated extraction system to remove any ground penetrating radon gas.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeders will put on a sealant or primer to the prepared base. A primer helps with the screed bonding correctly to the base surface and different varieties exist depending on which kind of screed is being used. These materials require professional tradesmen to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using airless sprays and other custom-built equipment.

Before any screed can be laid, any under floor heating will now be laid out. The cabling and heating pipes are securely attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement and make certain they're laid in the correct position. Warmth will be spread evenly across a floor area in an expertly fitted under floor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an effective method of heating, it's an ideal choice for most Netherfield home restoration projects.

If you're not fitting underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared in situ and poured. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the form of screeding used. After application of the screed there is a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk over the surface, and a 72 hour minimum drying period for the laying of any floor coverings. If you're aiming to wind up with a nicely finished and hard-wearing floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to standard and heavy duty screeds where this time period will be longer.

The SR level of your screeding can be confirmed once it has set enough to be walked on. Through the use of a 2m straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any dips, ridges and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Over the whole area, if there are no disparities of more than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the entire screed.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a quality finish isn't needed. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation depth of 10 millimetres.

If your screed floor has been laid with specific loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be needed to perform the tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will establish the screed surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. A drop hammer test is carried out on different areas of the screed and the outcomes noted. Only trained structural engineers following the BS8204 regulations are allowed to carry out these testing and sign off on the structural integrity of the screeding.

Latex Screed Netherfield

It may be an advantage to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a certain amount of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor. Latex floor screeds come in 2 parts - a bag and a bottle - with the bottle containing liquid latex and the bag containing a cement powder. The latex liquid additive takes the place of the water which is used in normal screeds, meaning that it's quicker drying and more flexible.

This latex compound is used for levelling-out sub-floors prior to the installation of the final decorative covering. This is suitable for use on substrate of concrete, wood, sand/cement, quarry tiles and asphalt, to give a resilient, smooth surface that is perfect for the application of adhesives. If your sub-floor has a bit of movement in it, this type of floor screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish, onto which your chosen floor coverings can be laid.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screeding is being laid on top of underfloor heating, depths of 50-75mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds are not appropriate for this purpose.
