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

The training and skills that a screeding contractor brings to your project should guarantee a successful end result and help to lengthen the life of your flooring. Picking the right screeding materials and the method of installation is vital if you want a quality and durable finish for your floor surface.

Make certain you get two or three price quotes for your Normanton based floor screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each price quote is for. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to look for when getting a quote from Normanton floor screeding companies. SR2 and SR3 might be less costly options, although the finished floor surface could have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect quality of finish. Any error in the screeding can cause issues with laying flooring because of flat spots, ridges, indentations in the floor surface.

The rules and regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 must be followed by any Normanton floor screeding company and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc.) to confirm their safe working practices and competence. A company holding accreditations demonstrates that they have been assessed and trained in using these products and can provide a high quality standard in all areas of their installation.

Commercial screeders in Normanton will probably undertake screeding projects in schools, warehouses, factories, shops, hospitals and restaurants.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is perfect for regular domestic use and comprises a mixture of sand and cement. This mix uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. This 5 to 1 ratio standard flooring screed will dry out at a rate of just one millimetre per day after laying.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to use the floor as quickly as possible a fast drying screed can be employed. The majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are perfect for a wide variety of projects where the quicker curing rate of 3-7mm is a welcome advantage.

Polymer Screeds - These provide an extremely high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Polymer screeds are made by many screed manufacturers and because of their varying chemical compositions have specific drying times for each individual product.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement material which can achieve the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. This is primarily needed to produce a smooth, level floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. Even with a thickness of just one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favourite choice of professional installers for use with under floor heating systems. The greater strength and flex provided by the special fibres within this screed mix help protect the resulting floor from cracking and shrinkage due to heat. At around 1mm per day, it has a similar setting rate to standard screed.

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

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will need to carefully prepare the area before proceeding with any other work in order to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. It is vital that any contaminants such as paint, debris, oil or grease is eradicated from the base before laying any screed, because these can affect the bonding capability that a quality screed demands.

Any cleansing chemicals used during this process should leave no residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and resulting in deviations on the finished floor surface. A site survey will enable your Normanton screeding specialist to take note of these preparation areas and finish them before starting to apply the screed layer.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be installed once the preparation work has been concluded to prevent ground dampness affecting the screed and floor materials. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene could be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation material.

Another airtight barrier could be required if your home or business premises is in a location that's known to be susceptible to radon gas emissions. An airtight membrane might be enough in places with low radon emissions, however in more serious cases there may have to be a more complex extraction and ventilation system to take away any ground penetrating radon.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeders will apply a primer or sealant to the prepared base. These primers and sealers will ensure that the screed bonds effectively to the base and help to achieve a top quality finished floor. Owing to their special nature, only certified screeding contractors in Normanton should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and through the use of bespoke equipment for the task.

If you are installing underfloor heating, this is the time that it will need to be laid out and installed. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and secured firmly to insulation panels to prevent potential movement during screed pouring. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system should deliver even warmth all over the floor.

If you are not fitting underfloor heating the screed will now be prepared in situ and laid. Your screeding specialist will have given you advice on which kind of screed is best for your needs, according to your proposed use of the room area. After the pouring of the screed there will be at least twenty four hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you're able to walk over the surface, and a 72 hrs minimum curing time for the laying of any flooring materials. If you are looking to wind up with a well finished and durable floor surface you must stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where this waiting period will be longer.

The SR level of your screed can be ascertained once it has hardened enough to be walked upon. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 metre straight edge to check for any variations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best level and permits just 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole screeded surface.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10 millimetres or less the screeding quality is specified as SR3 and is the standard required for garage and utility areas.

It may also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. The assessment will make sure that your newly laid screeding is viable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the site survey. A "drop hammer test" will be conducted at various areas on the screed and the outcomes noted. Only trained structural engineers applying the BS8204 guidelines are permitted to conduct these tests and sign off on the structural safety of screed flooring.

Latex Screed Normanton

When a level of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor you might find that using a latex self-levelling floor screed will be an advantage. Latex screeds come in 2 parts - a bag and a bottle - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cement powder. The latex liquid additive replaces the water which would normally be used for mixing screed, and is quicker drying and far more flexible than standard screeds.

Used for levelling subfloors, this latex compound creates a surface for the laying of the final floor finish. Producing a durable and smooth surface which is perfect for the application of adhesives, this is is appropriate for use on sub-floors of concrete, stone tiles, wood, asphalt and sand/cement. This type of latex screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there is movement in your sub-floor.

Latex screeds aren't appropriate where a "floating" screed is needed, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, such as might be the case when you are screeding over underfloor heating, and thicknesses of 50-75mm may be needed.
