TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Used in residential flooring projects where the mixture of sand and cement is okay for everyday floor traffic use. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the normal mix for standard flooring screeds. This 5:1 ratio standard screed will set hard at a rate of one millimetre per day after applying.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are necessary, by a latex and cement material. It is primarily needed to provide a smooth, clean floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. This liquid screed can be poured to a depth of just one millimetre, but still provides a high strength surface for a selection of flooring finishes.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The first choice where underfloor heating is being installed in residential homes in Quedgeley. The greater flexibility and strength offered by the fibres within the screed mix help protect the resulting floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. It's got a setting rate of 1mm per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to press ahead urgently with the flooring owing to time restraints, these screeds dry much faster than standard flooring screeds. They are generally a fibre reinforced type of screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are employed in time critical flooring projects.

Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed because of construction factors, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength solution to the situation. Manufacturer's guidelines for curing times vary across the product ranges.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum strength and durability in places where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor base is needed.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will have to carefully prepare the area prior to any other work so as to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any debris, grease, paint and oil on the existing floor surface can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eliminated.

If cleaning products were used it is vital to remove any remnants of soap or detergent, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor all cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and causing imperfections on the final floor surface. An on-site survey will allow the screeding installer to pinpoint this preparation work and finish it before beginning to pour the screeding.

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

If the area is at risk from radon gas then one additional barrier is necessary to stop the gas from entering from the ground. An air-tight membrane could be enough in places with relatively low radon emissions, however in more serious situations there might have to be a more complex ventilation and extraction system to remove any harmful radon gases.

As soon as the base has been properly prepared and all DPMs installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. These sealers and primers will make sure that the screed bonds successfully to the base and help to create a top quality finished floor. Because of their specialist nature, only qualified screeding specialists in Quedgeley are capable of using them safely and correctly and using equipment that's made for this task.

If required, this is the time that under floor heating can be laid out in the correct manner and installed. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and attached firmly to insulation panels to avoid potential movement during screed pouring process. When properly installed an under floor heating system is an excellent way to warm a room and top quality screed retains its heat, producing an even level of warmth right across the floor.

If you're not installing under floor heating the screed will now be prepared on site and poured. Your screeding specialist will give you advice on which screed type is suitable for your requirements, in line with your intended use of the room. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least a 24 hour delay before it can be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before you can install any flooring materials. This timescale is longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to the letter to produce the optimum finish and longevity of the floor.

The SR standard of your screeding can be checked once it's hardened enough to be stepped onto. The test involves using a 2 mtr long straight-edge laid on the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest level and allows just three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to five millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is ten millimetres or less the screeding quality is classified as SR3 and is fine for utility and garage areas.

If your screeding has been installed with specific loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be required to carry out the assessment. The assessment will make sure that your newly laid screeded surface is suitable for the load point requirements set down in the original site survey. This should include a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. Any screed floor that has load bearing requirements must be approved by a trained structural engineer observing the BS8204 regulations.
