A professional screeding specialist will also tell you if a structural engineer is needed for your undertaking, in order to check on flex strength, load bearing and point loadings that your flooring may require to conform with building regulations and British Standards.

The skills and training that a qualified screeding specialist brings to your project should guarantee a high quality outcome and help in extending the life of your floor. Picking the appropriate screeding materials and the method of installation is vital if you want a durable and quality finish for your floor.

Before picking out a screeding contractor from those operating in the Redbourn area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their quote, and also ensure that you get two or three estimates from different screeders. The SR (Surface Regularity) finish is the number to keep your eye on when studying a quote from your Redbourn screeding contractor. Each of the three SR levels provide different qualities of finish, with SR1 offering the highest, with the lowest amount of deviation over the area. This means that you might have to fix any areas that may cause problems when laying your finished flooring solution.

The regulations and guidelines specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by any Redbourn floor screeding contractor and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc.) to substantiate their competence and safe working practices. A company holding such accreditation shows that they have been trained and assessed in using these products and can deliver a top notch service in all aspects of their installation.

For the screeding of floors in warehouses, hotels, hospitals, schools, shopping centres and factories, dedicated Redbourn commercial screeders will be required.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A blend of cement and sand which is good for everyday domestic use. This mixture uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. The standard flooring screed will dry at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the area ASAP a fast drying screed may be used. Most of the fast drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are suitable for a whole host of projects where the faster drying rate of three to seven millimetres is advantageous.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are essential, by a latex and cement formula. This is primarily used to produce a high quality floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a finish onto which all forms of flooring materials can be laid. Even with a depth of only one millimetre, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.

Polymer Screeds - These provide an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Polymer screeds are available from many manufacturers and owing to their varying chemical compositions have distinct drying times for each product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with under floor heating and is the suggested option in such projects. The increased flexibility and strength provided by the fibres in the screed help protect the resulting floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

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

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will need to prepare all areas prior to any other work in order to guarantee a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. The existing floor surfaces should be cleaned to eliminate any oil, debris, grease and paint that might affect the adhesion of the screeding.

Screeding Near Redbourn (AL3)

Any cleaning products 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 necessary to repair any crevices or cracks in the surface to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" up into your freshly screeded floor. An on-site survey will enable your Redbourn screeding specialist to pinpoint these preparation areas and complete them before commencing to pour the screeding layer.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be laid. There may be two or three layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

If your house is situated in an area where radon is found a supplementary barrier layer is necessary to stop radon gas from entering. An airtight membrane may be enough in locations with low radon emissions, but in more extreme cases there may need to be a more complicated extraction and ventilation system to remove any ground penetrating radon.

The final phase of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealant. A primer assists in the screed to bond successfully to the base surface and different types exist based upon which type of screed is being applied. Because of their special nature, only certified screeders in Redbourn are capable of using them correctly, safely and through the use of equipment that is made for the task.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before screeding is poured. The cabling and heating pipes are firmly attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and make certain that they're held in the correct position. Warmth will be evenly spread across the floor in a professionally fitted under floor heating system, and along with it being an effective method of heating, it is a great choice for the majority of Redbourn home renovation projects.

Obviously, if you are not installing under floor heating, you can just bypass this stage and apply the floor screed. Your proposed use of the room will assist the screeding contractor on which sort of screed is appropriate for your needs. Remember that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk on any laid surfaces and at least seventy two hours before any flooring materials can be fitted. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds must be followed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even floor surface.

The SR standard of your screeding can be checked once it's solidified sufficiently to be walked upon. The standard SR test uses a two metre straight edge to check for any fluctuations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire screed area, if there aren't any deviations greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the whole screed.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish isn't necessary. This specification can have a maximum permissible deviation of 10mm.

It may also be necessary for a structural engineer to carry out a soundness test. The assessment will make sure that your new screeded surface is suitable for the load bearing requirements specified in the original site survey. A "drop hammer test" is carried out on various areas of the screed layer and the results documented. Only experienced structural engineers applying the BS8204 guidelines are allowed to carry out these testing and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.

Latex Screed Redbourn

When a bit of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface you might find that the use of a latex self-levelling floor screed will be advantageous. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cement powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex mixture. The liquid latex additive replaces the water that's used in standard screeds, making it more flexible and quicker drying.

Used for levelling subfloors, this latex product provides a surface for the laying of your chosen floor finish. This is appropriate for substrate made of asphalt, sand/cement, wood, quarry tiles or concrete, is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a durable, smooth surface. This type of latex screeding will provide a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there's a bit of movement in your sub-floor.

When installing a "floating" screed, for instance when a screed is being laid over the top of a membrane of thermal or acoustic insulation, screed thicknesses of 50mm-65mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds are not appropriate for this purpose.
