Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic projects where the mix of sand and cement is ideal for standard footfall usage. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. Once laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of 1mm per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to press ahead urgently with the work because of time limitations, this screed dries much faster than standard screeds. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are appropriate for a wide variety of flooring projects where the quicker drying rate of 3-7mm is a considerable advantage.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is needed on account of building requirements, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength resolution to the situation. Owing to their different chemical compositions, polymer screeds have varying setting times which you can verify by reading manufacturer's own product guidelines.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are necessary, by a latex and cement solution. Largely used to finalise a poor substrate level or damaged floor so as to lay a brand new flooring surface, such as tiles over the top of it. These can be as little as 1mm thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The first choice where underfloor heating is being installed in residential homes in Old Basing. The greater strength and flex offered by the special fibres in the screed help protect the resulting floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm/day.

Screeding installers will need to fully prepare the area before any other work so as to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. The original floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any paint, grease, oil and debris that might affect the adhesion of the screeding.

Any cleaning products which are used in this phase shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry out naturally. It's vital to fix any cracks in the surface to stop them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into your newly screeded floor. A site survey will enable your Old Basing screeding contractor to take note of this preparation work and finish it before beginning to lay the screeding.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be applied after the preparation work has been finished to prevent ground moisture affecting the flooring materials and screeding. The DPM is made of thick polythene sheeting and different layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

An additional air-tight barrier may be required if your home or business premises is in an area that's regarded as susceptible to radon gas emissions. If radon occurs in severe doses then a full extraction and ventilation system might be needed under the screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from the ground.

As soon as the floor base has been properly prepared and all membranes installed, a primer or sealant is then applied. A primer assists in the screed bonding process to the base surface and different types exist based upon which type of screed is being applied. Due to their special nature, only skilled screeding contractors in Old Basing are capable of using them safely and correctly and using equipment which is made for the task.

Now is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. The heating pipes and cables are securely attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure they're laid in the correct position. Warmth is evenly spread across a floor area in a properly fitted under floor heating system, and along with it being an effective choice of heating, it's an excellent choice for many Old Basing home renovation projects.

If you are not installing under floor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared in situ and laid. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the sort of screeding that is used. Remember that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any screeded surfaces and at least 72 hours before any flooring materials can be fitted. If you are using heavy duty or standard screeds the drying time is increased and you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines so as to get the best finish to your floor.

Once the screeding has set it can be checked for quality to verify the SR standard. The standard SR test involves the use of a 2 metre long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less as measured over the whole floor area shows your screeding to be of the best quality and categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor deviates from the straight edge by 5mm or less it is SR2 quality and is the standard for industrial and commercial floors.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a quality finish is not needed. This level allows for a maximium deviation of ten millimetres.

There may also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to do a soundness test. The testing will make certain that your newly laid screed is suitable for the load point requirements laid out in the site survey. This can include a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. Any screed floor that's got load bearing requirements must be approved by a trained structural engineer heeding the BS8204 regulations.

Latex Floor Screeds Old Basing

When a certain degree of flexibility is required in a floor's surface you may find that the employment of a latex floor screed will be advantageous. Latex screeds normally comprise 2 parts - a cementitious powder and a latex liquid additive. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the liquid latex, meaning that it's quicker drying and more flexible than other standard screeds.

This latex product is used for levelling subfloors prior to the installation of the final decorative surface. Appropriate for sub-floors of concrete, stone tiles, wood, asphalt and sand/cement, this gives a perfect surface for the application of flooring adhesives which is also resilient and smooth. Even where there is movement in your subfloor, this type of screeding will give you a flexible, crack-free finish.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screed is being laid on the top of underfloor heating, depths of 50-75mm may be needed, and latex screeds are not suitable in this case.
