Before you are able to lay a suitable floor covering, whether it's carpet, tile or wood, the floor surface should be as flat as is possible; this is why screeding a floor is often essential. The screeding is a vital process to guarantee a high quality and durable finish to the entire floor structure.

The screeding company will also notify you if a structural engineer is necessary for your project, to evaluate flex strength, load bearing and point loadings that your flooring might need to conform with British Standards and building regulations.

The skills and training that a qualified screeding specialist brings to your project should guarantee a high quality outcome and help to prolong the lifetime of your floors. Choosing the right screeding materials and the best installation technique is vital if you want a quality and durable finish for your floor.

Before picking out a floor screeding company from those based in the Raunds area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their price quote, and also make certain you get two or three quotations. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to watch out for when studying a quotation from your Raunds screeding contractor. Each of the 3 SR levels offer different qualities of finish, with SR1 being the highest, with the smallest amount of deviation over the surface area. Any error in the screeding (as might occur with SR2 or SR3) may cause issues with laying flooring owing to flat spots, indentations, ridges in the surface.

British Standards BS8204 sets down the guidelines and regulations that all Raunds screeding installers are required to follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc), they should be accredited by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. The training and assessment of a floor screeding company by a manufacturer is highlighted through the accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of reliability and safe working practices on any screeding project which involves their materials.

For larger screeding projects in shopping centres, schools, hospitals, warehouses, restaurants and factories, specialist Raunds commercial screeders will be needed.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A mixture of sand and cement which is perfect for normal domestic use. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. After laying a standard screed dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a minimal thickness. The curing times vary in accordance with product guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured choice by professional installers for use in combination with under floor heating systems. The increased strength and flex provided by the fibres in the screed help protect the floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. At around one millimetre per day, it has an identical drying rate to standard screed.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry quickly and allow you to use the floor area much faster. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, depending on the mixture, they are normally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are perfect for projects that have tight schedules.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are essential, by a latex and cement material. It's mainly used to provide a clean, smooth floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. This liquid screed can be laid to a thickness of only 1mm, but still provides a high strength surface for a selection of flooring materials.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum durability and strength in places where traffic is expected to be high or specific loading of the floor base is needed.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will need to fully prepare the area before any other work so as to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. It's vital that all contaminants such as oil, paint, grease or debris is eradicated from the floor before laying any screed, because these can affect the bonding capability that a good quality screed needs.

Any cleansing chemicals that are used during this phase shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. It is essential to fix any cracks or crevices in the base to stop them being visible and "travelling" up into the freshly screeded floor. A site survey will allow the screeding company to pinpoint these preparation areas and complete them before beginning to apply the screed layer.

Before any screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be put down to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture damage. The DPM is made of thick polythene and various layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If the area is susceptible to radon then an additional barrier is essential to stop the gas from entering via the ground. If radon occurs in large amounts then a complete ventilation and extraction system may be installed underneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from the ground.

The final step of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a primer or sealant. These sealers and primers will ensure the screed bonds successfully to the base surface and help to produce a top quality finished floor. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a sealant or primer, by qualified screeding contractors in Raunds following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

If you are going to be installing underfloor 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 prevent any movement and make sure they are held in the correct position. When properly installed an underfloor heating system is an excellent way to warm up a room and good quality screed retains its heat, creating an even level of warmth right across the floor.

If you're not installing under floor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared in situ and laid. Your screeding specialist will have given you advice and guidance on which screed type is appropriate for your needs, in line with your proposed use of the room. For quick drying and advanced screeds there will be at least twenty four hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further 3 days minimum before you are able to lay any flooring materials. If you are using standard or heavy duty screeds the curing time is longer and you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best possible finish for your floor.

You can assess the SR standard of the finished screed once it is solidified enough for walking on. The standard SR test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Deviations of 3mm or less as measured across the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and is specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the screed has a deviation from the straight-edge of five millimetres or less it is considered SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial floors.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is fairly immaterial SR3 is the specification and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If your screed floor has been installed with specific loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be necessary to carry out the tests. The assessment will ensure your newly laid screed is suitable for the load point requirements specified in the original site survey. The screeding should be subjected to what's known as a "drop hammer test" to gauge strength and flexibility in specific areas. The specialist testing and measurement tools required mean this can only be carried out by a qualified structural engineer heeding the guidelines of BS8204.

Latex Floor Screed Raunds

It is advantageous to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a degree of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface. Latex screeds come in 2 parts - a bottle and a bag - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cemetitious powder. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds, as the water that is normally used is replaced with the latex liquid.

This latex product is used for levelling-out sub-floors prior to the laying of the final decorative surface. This is suitable for use on sub-floors of asphalt, concrete, sand/cement, quarry tiles and wood, to give a resilient, smooth surface that is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives. Even where there's a bit of movement in your sub-floor, this type of latex floor screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish.

With "floating" screeds, for example when a screed is being laid over a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, latex floor screeds will not be a suitable choice. Floating screeds with a depth of 50 to 65 millimetres are frequently used on top of underfloor heating.
