If any cleaning products were used in this process it is vital to make certain that no residues of detergents, soaps or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it is allowed to dry out naturally. At this stage any cracks need to be repaired as these can travel up through your newly laid screed and be visible in the finished surface. A decent North Baddesley screeding contractor will pick up on these problems during the site survey and make sure that all preparations are completed before applying the next steps in the screeding process.

To protect the screeding layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be laid. The damp proof membrane is made out of thick polythene sheet and different layers could be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

If your property is situated in a place where radon gas is present an extra barrier layer is needed to prevent radon gas from getting through. If radon is present in large amounts then a complete ventilation and extraction system may be installed under the screed which will remove any gases that are seeping in from ground level.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeding company will put on a sealant or primer to the prepared floor base. A primer assists in the screed to successfully bond to the base and membranes and different types exist depending on which kind of screed is being applied.

Obviously, if you aren't installing underfloor heating, you can just ignore this stage and apply the floor screed. Your use of the room will assist your screeding contractor on which sort of floor screed is ideal for your needs. Bear in mind that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you are able to walk over any laid surface and at least seventy two hours before any flooring materials can be laid. If you are using standard or heavy duty screeds the setting time is longer and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed in order to get the best possible finish to your floor.

As soon as the screed has set it can be checked for quality to verify the SR level. The test involves using a 2m straight edge laid down upon the floor surface and any deviations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3mm or less as measured over the whole floor area shows your screed to be of the finest quality and is classified as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the entire screed.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is ten millimetres or less the screed quality is classified as SR3 and is suitable for utility and garage areas.

If your screeding has been laid with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be necessary to carry out tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will establish the screeding strength and suitability of use in a load bearing environment. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" will be performed on different areas of the screed and the outcomes recorded. The specialist measurement and testing tools mean this can only be carried out by a fully qualified structural engineer respecting the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screed North Baddesley

It is better to use a latex screed when a certain degree of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor. Latex floor screeds come in two parts - a bag and a bottle - with the bottle containing latex liquid and the bag containing a cement based powder. The latex liquid solution takes the place of the water which is used in normal screeds, meaning that it's more flexible and quicker drying.

This latex screed product is used to level a sub-floor before the final decorative surface is laid. Producing a durable, smooth surface that's perfect for the application of adhesives, this is is suitable for use on substrate of wood, stone tiles, sand/cement, concrete and asphalt. If your sub-floor has any movement in it, this latex screeding will produce a crack-free, flexible finish, on which your final floor coverings can be laid.

Latex floor screeds are not appropriate where a "floating" screed is desired, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid on top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, such as could be the case when you are screeding over underfloor heating, and thicknesses of 50 to 75 millimetres may be required.
