Floor screeding provides a smooth, level finish to a coarse sub-base, and will allow you to lay your final layer of flooring material, (carpets, boards, tiles etc) over it.

They'll also assess if a structural engineer is necessary to ensure that any point loadings, load requirements and flex strength are met as outlined by construction and building regulations.

Working with a skilled and qualified specialist will ensure you get the appropriate sort of screed for the room's intended usage and get the maximum lifespan out of the resulting floor. The correct blend of screed and the way it is laid is also vital to guarantee the ultimate durability of your floor surface.

Before picking out a floor screeding company from those based in the Oakley area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their price quote, and also make sure you get two or three price quotes. The quotation should be based on what is known as the Surface Regularity, or SR number. SR1 is the best quality, and while SR2 and SR3 might be cheaper at first glance, they don't guarantee a perfectly flat or even surface. Any imperfections in the final screeding may cause problems in laying flooring due to indentations, ridges, flat spots in the floor surface.

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

For larger floor screeding projects in restaurants, warehouses, schools, factories, hospitals and shopping centres, dedicated Oakley commercial screeders will be needed.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is good for regular domestic use and comprises a blend of sand and cement. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the usual mixture for standard screed. Once laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of 1mm each day.

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

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are necessary, by a latex and cement compound. Largely used to improve a poor substrate level or damaged floor so as to lay a brand new flooring surface, such as tiles on the top of it. This liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of only 1mm, but will still provide a strong surface to take a wide variety of flooring materials.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you need to progress urgently with the work because of time constraints, this screed dries much faster than standard flooring screeds. Most of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are perfect for a wide range of flooring projects where the quicker curing rate of 3-7mm/day is an advantage.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. The curing times vary according to product guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use on top of underfloor heating. This is because of the increased durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the fibres within the screed mix. At around one millimetre per day, it has the same setting rate to standard floor screed.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Preparation is vital for a high quality screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. Any debris, grease, oil and paint on the original floor surface can affect the bonding of the screed, and should be eliminated.

If any products were used during this stage it's vital to make sure that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" through your screed layer and causing imperfections on the finished floor surface. An experienced Oakley screeding specialist will address such aspects during the site survey and make sure all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next stages of the floor screeding process.

Before the screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be put down to protect the final flooring and screed from moisture. Different thicknesses of polythene sheeting may be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation materials.

If your house is situated in a place where radon is present a supplementary barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from entering. This could be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in more serious situations a ventilation system will need to be installed underneath the screeding to draw out any influx of radon gas from the ground.

As soon as the floor base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealer or primer is then put on. These primers and sealers will make sure the screed bonds properly to the floor base and help to accomplish a quality finished floor. On account of their specialist nature, only trained screeding contractors in Oakley should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and through the use of equipment which is made for this task.

If you're installing under floor heating, now is the time that it will need to be correctly laid out and installed. The cabling and heating pipes are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure that they're held in the correct position. When skillfully installed an under floor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and decent quality screeding will retain its heat, producing an even level of warmth right across the floor surface.

Naturally, if you're not fitting underfloor heating, you can just skip this step and apply the floor screed. Your use of the room will assist your screeding specialist on which form of floor screed is perfect for your needs. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it can be walked on, and a further 72 hours minimum before you are able to install any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds must be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and even floor surface.

You can test the SR level of the finished screed once it's hardened enough to walk on. The test involves using a 2m long straight-edge laid on the surface and any fluctuations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best level and allows just 3mm of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the entire floor surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a quality finish is not required. This level allows for a maximium deviation of ten millimetres.

There might also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. Using specialist equipment the engineer will verify the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. A "drop hammer test" will be carried out at various areas on the screed layer and the outcomes noted. The precise testing and measurement tools mean this can only be conducted by a competent structural engineer following the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Floor Screeds Oakley

When a bit of flexibility is necessary in the surface of a floor you may find that the employment of a latex self-levelling screeding will be an advantage. Latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cement based compound, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex mixture. The latex liquid solution replaces the water that would typically be used in a screed mix, and is quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

Used in the levelling-out of subfloors, this latex product provides a suitable surface for the laying of your chosen floor finishes. Suitable for sub-floors of sand/cement, asphalt, concrete, wood and quarry tiles, this gives a perfect surface for the application of flooring adhesives that is smooth and durable. If your subfloor has any movement in it, this type of latex floor screed will still give you a crack-free, flexible finish, on which your final floor coverings can sit.

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