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

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement material. Largely used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like tiling over the top of it. They can be as little as 1mm thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is needed because of construction requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to the problem. Polymer screeds are made by many manufacturers and owing to their different chemical compositions have distinct curing times for each product.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries quickly and allows you to use the floor area much faster.

Good preparation is crucial for a top quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. The existing floor surface should be cleaned to remove any paint, grease, oil and debris that might adversely affect the adhesion of the screed.

Screeding Near Northallerton (DL6)

Any cleansing chemicals used in this process should leave no residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry out naturally. It's vital to fix any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to avoid them being reflected and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. During an on-site survey the screeding installer will be able to see what preparation work is required before starting to work on screeding the floor.

To shield the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be laid. There could be two or three layers of varying thickness polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

If the area is at risk from radon then one additional barrier is needed to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. This could be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in severe situations a ventilation system is installed under the floor screed to take away any inflow of radon gas from ground level.

The final phase of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealer. These sealers and primers will ensure that the screed bonds perfectly to the base surface and help create a high quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by qualified screeding contractors in Northallerton observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and checked before screeding is poured. The heating pipes and cables are firmly attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement and make sure they are held in the correct position. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in a properly fitted under floor heating system, and with it being an efficient method of heating, it's an excellent choice for many Northallerton renovation projects.

The screed can now be prepared in situ and applied to the floor surface. Your proposed use of the room will help the screeding specialist on which type of screed is right for your requirements. For quick drying screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 72 hours minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds must be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and long lasting surface.

Once the screed has hardened it can be checked for quality to determine the SR level. The test involves using a 2 mtr straight edge laid on the floor surface and any variations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3 millimetres or less being measured over the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor deviates from the straight edge by five millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 level and is the standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is ten millimetres or less the screeding quality is classed as SR3 and is suitable for utility and garage areas.

If your screed floor has been installed with specific loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be required to perform tests. The assessment will make sure that your newly laid screed surface is viable for the load point requirements set down in the original site survey. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" is carried out at several areas on the screed and the results recorded. Only experienced structural engineers applying the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to perform such testing and sign off on the structural safety of screed flooring.

Latex Screed Northallerton

It is better to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a level of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor. Latex floor screeds generally comprise two parts - a cementitious powder and a latex liquid component. The latex liquid solution replaces the water that would typically be used in a screed mix, and is quicker drying and far more flexible than standard screeds.

Used for levelling-out subfloors, this latex product provides a surface for the laying of your chosen floor finish. This is suitable for sub-floors made from stone tiles, concrete, sand/cement, wood or asphalt, is perfect for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a smooth and durable surface. If your subfloor has a bit of movement in it, this latex floor screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish, on which your final floor coverings can be laid.

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