Floor Screeding Pinchbeck Lincolnshire (PE11): A professional floor screeder can help with renovations, help to install under floor heating or level an uneven or damaged floor on your Pinchbeck property, when needed. A screed is used to generate a smooth floor on top of a concrete sub-base and give a firm foundation for your choice of top flooring material. Floor screeding will provide a high quality and durable surface for virtually any room.
FLOOR SCREEDING EXPERTS PINCHBECK
A reliable screeding contractor in Pinchbeck will have experience and know-how to help you achieve a perfect floor in whatever shape or size of room you are renovating. They will assess your project and ascertain the appropriate kind of screed you require and the best strategy for applying it.
They will in addition assess if a structural engineer is required to make certain any point loadings, load bearing and flex strength are followed as set out in building and construction regulations.
The training and skills that a screeding contractor brings to your project will guarantee a high quality outcome and help in extending the lifespan of your floor. Choosing the right screeding materials and the method of installation is critical if you want to finish up with a quality and durable finish for your floor surface.
Ensure that you get two or three quotes for your Pinchbeck based screeding project and also ask to what standard you're getting a quote. For residential homes an estimate will generally be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) calculation of SR1 or SR2. SR2 and SR3 will be less costly options, although the finished floor surface could have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect quality of finish. Any error in the screeding may cause issues with laying flooring owing to indentations, flat spots, ridges in the floor surface.
British Standards BS8204 lays out the regulations and guidelines that all Pinchbeck screeding contractors must follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc), they should be approved by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. A contractor holding such accreditation indicates that they have been assessed and trained in using these screeding products and can offer a high quality standard in all areas of their installation.
Pinchbeck commercial screeders will be involved in floor screeding in factories, hospitals, schools, restaurants, shopping centres and warehouses.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential flooring projects where the mix of sand and cement is good for basic floor traffic use. Five parts sand to one part cement is the typical mix for standard screeds. This 5:1 ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of one millimetre per day after laying.
Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is needed on account of construction factors, a polymer screed provides a high strength resolution to the problem. Polymer screeds are made by many screed manufacturers and owing to their diverse chemical compositions have distinct drying times for each product.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the floor as soon as possible a fast drying screed may be used. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are suitable for a wide array of flooring projects where the speedier curing rate of three to seven millimetres is a big advantage.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Designed for maximum strength and durability in places where traffic is expected to be high or specific loading of the floor is required.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional contractors for use with underfloor heating systems. The fibres in the screed mix improve overall strength and durability whilst also protecting against thermal cracking and shrinkage. At roughly one millimetre per day, it has an identical drying rate to standard floor screed.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are essential, by a cement and latex formula. It's mainly used to produce a smooth, clean floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a finish onto which all types of flooring materials can be laid. Even with a depth of one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
To ensure the screeding is of a good quality finish that is durable and hard wearing, time must be devoted to carefully preparing the area before any screed is poured. The original floor surfaces should be cleaned to remove any grease, debris, oil and paint which can adversely affect the adhesion of the screeding.
If cleaning products were used it is vital to remove any traces of detergent, soap etc, and leave the surface to dry naturally. It's vital to repair any cracks in the base to avoid them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. A site survey will enable the screeding installer to take note of this preparation work and tackle it before starting to pour the screeding.
A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be applied after the preparation work has been completed to prevent ground dampness affecting the flooring materials and screed. There might be 2 or 3 layers of varying thickness polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.
An additional airtight barrier might be required if your property is in an area which is known to be prone to radon gas. This can be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in more serious situations a ventilation and extraction system will need to be installed under the screed to take away any inflow of radon gas from ground level.
Once these stages have been completed the screeders will apply a sealant or primer to the prepared floor base. Primers and sealers assist with the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the kind of screed being used. Because of their specialist nature, only trained screeding specialists in Pinchbeck should be entrusted with using them safely and correctly and through the use of equipment that's made for the task.
Before any screed is laid, any underfloor heating (if required) will now be installed. The underfloor heating system will be carefully positioned and mounted firmly on insulation panels to prevent any movement during screed pouring. Warmth is spread evenly across a floor area in an expertly fitted underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient method of heating, it is a good choice for most Pinchbeck renovation projects.
Naturally, if you aren't installing underfloor heating, you can ignore this stage and apply the floor screed. Your proposed use of the room will assist the screeding contractor on which sort of floor screed is best for your needs. For quick drying and advanced screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it can be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before you are able to lay any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for heavy duty and standard screeds should be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with an even and stable floor surface.
The SR level of your screeding can be checked once it's hardened sufficiently to be stepped onto. Through the use of a 2 mtr straight-edge the surface is examined for any deviations, dips and ridges in the screed surface.
- SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any disparities greater than three millimetres from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
- SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
- SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is fairly inconsequential SR3 is the specification and has a maximum deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.
It might also be necessary for a structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. This test will establish the strength of the screeded surface and its suitability for the proposed use. A "drop hammer test" is performed on different areas of the screed layer and the outcomes noted. The specialist testing and measurement tools needed mean this can only be undertaken by a qualified structural engineer obeying the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.
