TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - A mix of sand and cement which is ideal for normal residential usage. The ratios involved are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. The standard flooring screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness each day.
Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to move forward urgently with the work owing to time constraints, this screed dries more speedily than standard screeds. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are appropriate for a wide array of flooring projects where the swifter curing rate of three to seven millimetres is a welcome advantage.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use on top of underfloor heating. This is because of the increased strength and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking offered by the special fibres within the screed. It dries at the same rate as a standard screed of 1mm per day.
Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Polymer screeds are available from many manufacturers and because of their different chemical compositions have specific curing times for each individual product.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that is designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where the maximum possible strength and durability is essential.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement material which can achieve the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. This self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all flooring materials to be laid. Even with a depth of just 1mm, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Screeding installers will need to carefully prepare all areas before any other work in order to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any debris, grease, oil and paint on the original floor level can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eradicated.
If any cleaning products were used in this process it's crucial to make certain that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. It is vital to mend any crevices or cracks in the base to prevent them being visible and "travelling" upwards into your newly screeded floor. During an on-site survey the screeding installer will ascertain what preparation work is necessary before any actual screeding work begins.
To shield the flooring materials and screed layer from moisture rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be laid. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene might be used as a damp proof membrane and also act as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.
A further air-tight barrier may be necessary if your home or business premises is in an area which is known to be prone to radon. An airtight membrane might be enough in areas with low emissions of radon, however in more severe cases there might have to be a more complicated extraction system to remove any harmful radon gases.
As soon as the base has been prepared and any DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then put on. A primer helps with the screed bonding correctly to the base surface and different varieties exist according to which kind of screed is being applied. On account of their specialist nature, only trained screeding contractors in Ossett are capable of using them safely and correctly and through the use of bespoke equipment for this task.
If you are going to be installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be correctly set out and installed. The heating pipes and cabling are firmly attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure they are held 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 method of heating, it's a good choice for the majority of Ossett home renovation projects.
If you're not putting in under floor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared on site and poured. Your use of the room will assist the screeding contractor on what form of screed is perfect for your requirements. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before you are able to install any flooring materials. If you're aiming to end up with a well finished and hard-wearing floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to standard and heavy duty screeds where this time period will be longer.
You can check the SR level of the finished screeding as soon as it's hard enough for walking on. The test involves the use of a two metre long straight-edge laid down upon the surface and any deviations from true are calculated.
- SR1 - Disparities of three millimetres or less being measured across the whole area shows your screed floor to be of the highest quality and is categorised as SR1.
- SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the entire screed.
- SR3 - For a utility area or room where the finish is fairly inconsequential the SR3 is the standard and has a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.
There may also be a requirement for a structural engineer to perform a soundness test. The testing will make sure that your newly laid screed is viable for the load point requirements laid out in the original site survey. A drop hammer test will be performed at various areas on the screed and the results noted. Only fully qualified structural engineers observing the BS8204 regulations are permitted to conduct such testing and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.
