It might be a requirement, according to the proposed use of the space, for a structural engineering survey to conform to building regulations on flex strength, load bearing and point loadings of the screed floor.

A qualified and skilled work force is imperative for a successful result and will extend your floor's lifespan through the use of the right kind of screed for the intended purpose of your room. A correct blend of screed and the techniques used in laying it are also vital to guarantee the final intergrity of your floor.

There are many screeding contractors in and around Reigate so if possible get multiple estimates for your project before picking out a company and know to what standard of finish it's for. The estimate could be based on what is known as the Surface Regularity, or SR calculation.

This means you might have to correct any areas that could cause problems when laying your final flooring material.

The guidelines and regulations set out in in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by all Reigate floor screeding companies and they should also be accredited by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc.) to confirm their safe working practices and competence. The training and assessment of a floor screeding company by a manufacturer is underlined by the use of this accreditation scheme, and gives assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any flooring project which involves their materials.

For larger floor screeding projects in warehouses, factories, hospitals, pubs, shops and schools, dedicated commercial screeders in Reigate will be needed.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic projects where the mixture of cement and sand is good for basic floor traffic use. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the normal mix for standard flooring screeds. The standard flooring screed dries at a rate of 1mm thickness per day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry at a quicker rate and allow you to use the floor area much faster. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are appropriate for a wide array of flooring projects where the quicker curing rate of 3-7mm/day is a welcome advantage.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with under floor heating systems and is the favoured choice in these projects. The fibres in the screed mix improve it's durability and strength whilst also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It has a setting rate of one millimetre per day.

Screeding Quotes Reigate Surrey

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that is designed for heavy traffic and high load areas where the maximum possible durability and strength is vital.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a latex and cement compound. Mostly used to finish off a poor substrate level or damaged floor so as to lay a new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks over the top of it. Even with a depth of just one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Polymer screeds are available from many manufacturers and because of their diverse chemical compositions have specific setting times for each individual product.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will have to carefully prepare the area before proceeding with any other work so as to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It is important that all contaminants such as debris, oil, grease or paint is eradicated from the base before laying any screed, as these can affect the adhesion capability that a quality floor screed requires.

If any products are used during this stage it's crucial to ensure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the floor surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor then all cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" through your screed layer and producing imperfections on the final surface. During a site survey the screeding contractor will be able to see what preparation work is required before starting to work on screeding the floor.

Before the screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed to protect the final flooring and screed from moisture. There may be 2 or 3 layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.

If your property is located in an area where radon gas is found a supplementary barrier layer is essential to stop radon gas from seeping through. This can be as simple as an air-tight membrane, or in severe situations a ventilation and extraction system will be installed under the screeding to extract any influx of air and gas from ground level.

The final step of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealer. A primer helps with the screed to bond successfully to the base and different types exist according to which type of screed is being applied. These substances need experienced contractors to apply them in the right ratios by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.

Before the screeding can be poured, any underfloor heating (if required) will now be laid out. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and secured firmly to insulation panels to avoid potential movement in the course of the screed installation process. Warmth will be evenly spread across a floor area in a skillfully installed underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient method of heating, it is an excellent choice for the majority of Reigate home renovation projects.

The screeding can now be prepared on site and applied to the base. Your use of the room will help your screeding company on which sort of floor screed is right for your needs. After application of the screed there's a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you are able to walk upon the surface, and a seventy two hour minimum setting time before the laying of any floor coverings. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds should be followed in order to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and even surface.

The SR standard of your screeding can be confirmed once it has solidified enough to be stepped onto. The test involves the use of a 2 mtr straight edge laid down upon the floor surface and any variations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best specification and permits only 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5 millimetres.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the finish is comparatively immaterial SR3 is the classification and should have a maximum deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If your screed has been installed with specific loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be necessary to perform the assessment. This assessment will determine the overall strength of the screeded surface and its viability for the proposed use. This should include what's known as a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. The precise measurement and testing tools mean this can only be conducted by a certified structural engineer following the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Screeds Reigate

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a level of flexibility is necessary, it may be best to use a latex screeding, rather than one with a more rigid finish. Latex floor screeds normally comprise 2 parts - a cementitious powder and a liquid latex mixture. Where water is normally used in a screed mix, this is replaced with the liquid latex, meaning it's more flexible than other types of screed, and quicker drying.

Prior to the laying of the final decorative surface, this latex compound is used for levelling subfloors. Providing a smooth and resilient surface that's ideal for the application of adhesives, this is is suitable for use on sub-floors of sand/cement, wood, stone tiles, asphalt and concrete. If there's a bit of movement in the sub-floor this latex floor screed will provide a flexible, crack-free finish on which to lay your final floor coverings.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when screed is being laid on top of underfloor heating, thicknesses of 50-65mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds aren't a suitable choice in this case.
