Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is essential. Owing to their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying drying times which you can verify by checking manufacturer's product guidelines.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are needed, by a latex and cement mixture. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all flooring materials to be laid.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum strength and durability in areas where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor base is needed.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will need to prepare all areas before proceeding with any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It's important that all contaminants such as grease, paint, oil or loose debris is eradicated from the base before laying any screed, because these can affect the adhesion process that a good quality floor screed needs.

If cleansing products were used it's crucial to remove any remnants of soap, detergent etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. It is essential to repair any cracks in the floor surface to prevent them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into your freshly screeded floor. A site survey will enable your Rushden screeding specialist to highlight this preparation work and tackle it before beginning to apply the screed layer.

To shield the flooring materials and screeding layer from dampness rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed. The DPM is made of thick polythene sheeting and various layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon then an additional barrier is required to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. This could be just a simple airtight membrane, or in severe situations a ventilation and extraction system is installed beneath the screeding to extract any influx of air and gas from the ground.

Once these steps have been taken the screeding company will put on a sealer or primer to the prepared base. Primers and sealers help the bonding process and are special applications according to the kind of screed that's being used. Due to their special nature, only trained screeding contractors in Rushden are capable of using them correctly, safely and through the use of bespoke equipment for the task.

This is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct manner. Insulation panels can be put in position and the wires and heating pipes will be firmly fastened so that there is no movement while the screed is being applied. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a properly installed system will give an even warmth in all areas of the floor.

Naturally, if you aren't installing underfloor heating, you can skip this stage and get on with applying the screed. The specific requirements of the room will determine the type of screeding that's used. After application of the screed there will be a minimum 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you are able to walk over the surface, and a 72 hour minimum setting period before the laying of any flooring materials. If you're using standard or heavy duty screeds the curing time is longer and the manufacturer's guidelines must be followed in order to get the best finish to your floor.

The SR standard of your screeding can be verified once it's solidified enough to be walked on. Using a two metre straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any ridges, deviations and dips in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there are no disparities of more than three millimetres from the straight-edge, you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - If the screeded surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of five millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 quality and is the standard for commercial and industrial projects.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect quality finish is not needed. This specification allows for a maximium deviation of 10 millimetres.

If your screeding has been installed with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be needed to carry out the assessment. This test will establish the overall strength of the screeding and the viability for its proposed use. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" is performed at several areas on the screed layer and the results noted. The specialist measurement and testing tools mean that this can only be performed by a trained structural engineer heeding the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.

Latex Screed Rushden

It may be an advantage to use a latex self-levelling screeding when a level of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface. Latex floor screeds come in two parts - a bottle and a bag - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cement based smoothing compound. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed, as the water that's normally used is substituted with the liquid latex.

Prior to the laying of your chosen decorative covering, this latex compound is used for levelling sub-floors. Producing a durable, smooth surface that's ideal for the application of adhesives, this screed is is suitable for use on subfloors of wood, asphalt, sand/cement, quarry tiles and concrete. This type of latex screeding will provide a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there happens to be a bit of movement in your subfloor.

When using a "floating" screed, for instance when an unbonded screed is being laid over the top of a membrane of either thermal or acoustic insulation, screed thicknesses of 50mm-75mm may be needed, and latex flooring screeds are not suited to this purpose.
