TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is okay for everyday domestic use and is a mixture of cement and sand. The standard screed is a mix of five parts sand to one of cement. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of one millimetre per day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are high or heavy loading of the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds deliver maximum strength and durability.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry at a quicker rate and allow you to use the floor area much sooner. The majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are suitable for a wide range of projects where the speedier drying rate of three to seven millimetres is a welcome advantage.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with under floor heating systems and is the favoured choice in these projects. This is due to the increased durability and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the fibres within the screed. At approximately 1mm per day, it has a similar setting rate to standard floor screed.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is needed. Because of their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying setting times which can be verified by reading manufacturer's own product guidelines.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement formula. Mostly used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, like tiles on top of it. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will have to fully prepare the area before proceeding with any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. The existing floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any grease, paint, oil and debris which can adversely affect the adhesion of the screeding.

If cleaning products were used it is important to remove any remnants of soap etc, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. It is necessary to mend any cracks in the floor surface to stop them being visible and "travelling" up into the newly screeded floor. A site survey will allow your North Mymms screeding contractor to highlight these preparation areas and finish them before beginning to lay the screeding.

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. The DPM is made of thick polythene and different layers could be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screeding.

Another airtight barrier may be necessary if your house is in an area which is regarded as prone to radon gas emissions. A simple air-tight membrane may be sufficient in locations with low radon measurements, but in more serious cases there may have to be a more complicated extraction system to take away any ground penetrating radon gases.

Once the base has been properly prepared and any DPMs installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. These primers and sealers will make sure that the screed bonds perfectly to the floor base and help to produce a quality finished floor. Because of their specialist nature, only experienced screeding contractors in North Mymms should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and using bespoke equipment for the task.

If you're installing under floor heating, now is the time that it will need to be correctly set out and installed. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and firmly mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement in the course of the screed application. When properly installed an under floor heating system is an excellent way to warm up a room and high quality screeding will retain its heat, creating an even heat right across the floor.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared in situ and applied to the base. The specific requirements of the room will determine the form of screeding that is used. For quick drying screeds there will be at least twenty four hours delay before it can be walked over, and a further 72 hours minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. If you are looking to wind up with a nicely finished and hard-wearing floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where this timescale will be longer.

The SR standard of your screed can be confirmed once it's hardened sufficiently to be stepped onto. The test involves the use of a 2m straight edge laid down upon the floor surface and any deviations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the entire screed area, if there aren't any disparities of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is relatively unimportant the SR3 is the standard and has a deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is needed to carry out the tests. This test will ascertain the overall strength of the screed surface and its viability for the intended use. This should include a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. Any screed flooring that's got load bearing requirements must be okayed by a competent structural engineer heeding the British Standards BS8204 regulations.

Latex Floor Screed North Mymms

It is best to use a latex self-levelling screeding when a certain degree of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface. Latex screeds usually comprise 2 parts - a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex mixture. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the liquid latex, making it quicker drying and more flexible than other standard screeds.

Prior to the installation of your chosen decorative covering, this latex product is used for levelling sub-floors. This is suitable for use on subfloors of wood, asphalt, stone tiles, concrete and sand/cement, to provide a smooth and resilient surface which is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives. If your subfloor has a bit of movement in it, this latex floor screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish, upon which your final floor coverings can sit.

With a "floating" screed, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid over a membrane of acoustic or thermal insulation, latex floor screeds will not be appropriate. Floating screeds with a depth of 50-75mm are normally used on top of underfloor heating.
