Floor Screeding Parkeston Essex (CO12): If you have an uneven or damaged floor, are looking to install under floor heating or are restoring a property or basement in your Parkeston property, then it's time to think about hiring a professional floor screeder. Floor screeding gives a smooth finish to a rough sub-base floor, and allows you to lay a suitable flooring material, (tiles, boards, carpets etc) over the top of it. The screeding is a vital procedure to ensure a durable and quality finish to the whole floor structure.
FLOOR SCREEDING COMPANIES PARKESTON
Whatever size room or area you are remodeling, a decent screeding company in Parkeston will supply the expertise and correct working practices to establish the perfect base for your floors. After evaluating your project they'll give you advice about the perfect choice of screed and which strategy for applying it is most suited to your circumstances.
They will also assess if a structural engineer is required to ensure any load bearing, flex strength and point loadings are met as laid down in construction and building regulations.
The skills and training that a screeding specialist brings to your project will guarantee a high quality outcome and help to prolong the lifespan of your floor or floors. A correct mix of screed and the techniques used for laying it are also critical to guarantee the final intergrity of your floor.
Before deciding on a floor screeding company from those based in the Parkeston area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their price quote, and also make certain that you get multiple quotations. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to watch out for when reviewing a quotation from Parkeston screeding companies. SR2 and SR3 could be cheaper options, however the floor screeding finish could have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect finish. An SR2 or SR3 standard could mean there are flat spots or ridges that may cause problems when putting down your final floor surface.
The regulations and guidelines set out in in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by all Parkeston floor screeding contractors and they must also be accredited by the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc.) to substantiate their safe working practices and competence. A contractor holding accreditation shows they have been trained and assessed in the use of these screeding products and can provide a top notch service in all areas of their installation.
Parkeston commercial screeders could be involved in screeding floors in hospitals, schools, restaurants, shopping centres, warehouses and factories.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - This is okay for regular domestic usage and comprises a combination of cement and sand. The ratios involved in standard screeds are five parts sand to one part cement. After being laid a standard screed sets at a rate of just 1mm/day.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum durability and strength on floors where traffic is expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor base is needed.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use on top of under floor heating. The increased strength and flex provided by the special fibres within this screed help protect the floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. It dries out at the same rate as a standard screed of 1mm per day.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex solution. This is primarily used to produce a smooth, clean floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. These can be as little as one millimetre thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.
Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Maker's guidelines for curing times are different across the product ranges.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to progress urgently with the work because of time constraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard flooring screeds. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are perfect for a wide array of projects where the quicker drying rate of 3-7mm is a welcome advantage.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Good preparation is vital for a high quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The existing floor surface should be thoroughly cleaned to eradicate any grease, debris, paint and oil which can affect the bond of the screeding.
Any cleansing products used during this process should leave no residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry out naturally. It's vital to repair any cracks in the base to avoid them being reflected and "travelling" up into the newly screeded floor. An on-site survey will enable your Parkeston screeding company to pinpoint these preparation areas and finish them before commencing to apply the screed layer.
Before any screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed to protect the final flooring and screed from moisture damage. Different thicknesses of specialised polythene may be used as a damp proof membrane and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation panels.
If your home is situated in a place where radon gas is present an extra barrier layer is necessary to prevent radon gas from entering. If radon is present in large amounts then a complete ventilation system might be needed under the screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from the ground.
Once the floor base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealant or primer is then applied. These sealers and primers will ensure the screed bonds perfectly to the floor base and help to create a top quality finished floor. These products require qualified contractors to apply them in the correct ratios by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.
Before any screed can be laid, any under floor heating (if required) will now be laid out. Insulation panels will be arranged and the cables and heating pipes will be securely attached to prevent any movement while the screed is being poured. When professionally installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm a room and high quality screed retains its heat, producing an even heat across the floor.
Obviously, if you are not putting in underfloor heating, you simply skip this step and get on with applying the floor screed. The requirements of the room will determine the form of screeding that is used. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least twenty four hours delay before it can be walked over, and a further Three days minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds should be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and long lasting floor surface.
The SR level of your screed can be confirmed once it has solidified sufficiently to be stepped onto. Through the use of a 2m straight-edge the surface is checked for any ridges, dips and deviations in the surface of the screed.
- SR1 - Disparities of three millimetres or less as measured across the entire floor area shows your screeding to be of the highest quality and classed as SR1.
- SR2 - SR2 is for standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
- SR3 - For utility floors where the finish is fairly immaterial the SR3 is the classification and has a deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.
If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is required to perform the tests. Using specialised equipment the engineer will establish the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. A drop hammer test will be performed on different areas of the screed and the outcomes recorded. The specialist measurement and testing tools required mean that this can only be undertaken by a certified structural engineer heeding the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Floor Screeds Parkeston
When a degree of flexibility is necessary in the surface of a floor you may find that the employment of a latex self-levelling floor screed will be best. Latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cemetitious powder, and the bottle containing a liquid latex additive. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than standard screeds, because the water that's normally used is exchanged for the latex liquid.
Used for levelling subfloors, this latex product creates a surface for the laying of your chosen floor finishes. This is suitable for substrate made of concrete, sand/cement, asphalt, wood or stone tiles, is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a resilient and smooth surface. If your subfloor has any movement in it, this latex screed will still produce a crack-free, flexible finish, on which your final floor coverings can be laid.
With a "floating" screed, for example when a screed is being laid on top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, latex floor screeds will not be a suitable choice. Floating screeds with a depth of 50-75mm are normally used over underfloor heating.
