The screeding company will also let you know if a structural engineer is needed for your project, to identify load requirements, flex strength and point loadings that your screed floor might require to conform with current building regulations and British Standards.

Bringing in a qualified and skilled specialist will ensure you use the proper kind of screed for the room's proposed purpose to extend the lifetime of your floor. The correct blend of screed and the methods used in laying it are also critical to guarantee the final quality of your floor surface.

Before picking out a screeding contractor from the many based in the Stepps area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their price quote, and also make certain you get multiple quotations. For domestic homes a quotation will generally be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) level of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the best level, and whilst SR2 and SR3 might be cheaper at first glance, they do not guarantee a totally even or flat floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 standard might mean there are ridges or flat spots that may cause issues when putting down your final flooring surface (wood, tile, carpet etc).

The regulations and guidelines set out in in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by any Stepps floor screeding contractor and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc.) to confirm their competence and safe working practices. This accreditation program demonstrates a firm's training and performance in the use of a manufacturer's merchandise.

Commercial screeders in Stepps will generally undertake floor screeding projects in shopping centres, warehouses, factories, schools, hospitals and pubs.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is okay for regular domestic use and comprises a combination of sand and cement. This mixture uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. Once its been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of 1mm per day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are high or heavy loading of the floor is required, heavy duty screeds provide maximum strength and durability.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use on top of underfloor heating. The improved flex and strength offered by the fibres in this screed help protect the resulting floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. At approximately one millimetre per day, it has a similar curing rate to standard floor screed.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, this screed dries quickly and allows you to use the floor area much sooner. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, determined by the specialised mix, they are typically a fibre reinforced screed and are perfect for projects which have tight deadlines.

Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a lower thickness. Polymer screeds are made by a number of manufacturers and due to their varying chemical compositions have specific drying times for each individual product.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex compound. It is mostly needed to produce a smooth, level floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a surface finish onto which all forms of flooring materials can be laid. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will need to prepare the area before any other work in order to guarantee a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. It is important that any contaminants such as grease, paint, oil or loose debris is eliminated from the floor surface before pouring any screed, since these can affect the adhesion capability that a quality screed needs.

Screeding Near Stepps (G33)

If cleansing products have been used it's crucial to remove any traces of soap or detergent, and leave the surface to dry naturally. It's essential to fix any cracks in the surface to avoid them being visible and "travelling" up into the freshly screeded floor. A site survey will enable the screeding company to pinpoint this preparation work and finish it before starting to apply the screed layer.

To protect the flooring materials and screeding layer from dampness rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be laid. The DPM is made from thick polythene and various layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

If your home is situated in a place where radon is present an additional barrier layer is necessary to prevent radon gas from getting through. This could be just a simple airtight membrane, or in more serious cases an extraction and ventilation system is installed under the floor screed to draw out any inflow of radon gas from ground level.

As soon as the base has been properly prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealer or primer is then applied. These primers and sealers will make sure the screed bonds successfully to the base surface and help to achieve a high quality finished floor. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by qualified screeding contractors in Stepps observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before any screed can be poured, any underfloor heating will now set out and installed. The heating pipes and wires are securely attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement and make sure they are laid in the correct position. Warmth will be evenly spread across the floor in a skillfully fitted under floor heating system, and along with it being an effective method of heating, it's a great choice for many Stepps home renovation projects.

The screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and applied to the base. The requirements of the room will dictate the sort of screeding that's used. For quick drying screeds there will be at least a 24 hour delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further seventy two hours minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. If you're using heavy duty or standard screeds the drying time is increased and the manufacturer's guidelines must be adhered to so as to get the best finish for your floor.

As soon as the screed has set it can be quality checked to verify its SR level. Through the use of a 2 mtr straight-edge the surface is examined for any dips, ridges and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best specification and permits only three millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface deviates from the straight edge by 5mm or less it is SR2 level and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial floors.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the finish is comparatively inconsequential the SR3 is the classification and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is needed to conduct the testing. Using specialist equipment the engineer will assess the screeded surface strength and viability of use in a load bearing setting. A drop hammer test will be conducted on various areas of the screed and the results recorded. Only experienced structural engineers following the BS8204 regulations are permitted to perform such testing and sign off on the structural safety of the screeding.

Latex Screeds Stepps

When a degree of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface you may find that the use of a latex screed will be best. Latex screeds come in two parts - a bag and a bottle - with a bottle that contains liquid latex, and a bag that contains a cemetitious powder. The latex liquid part replaces the water that would normally be used in a screed mix, and is more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed.

Prior to the installation of your chosen decorative surface, this latex product is used for levelling-out subfloors. Appropriate for substrate of quarry tiles, asphalt, concrete, sand/cement and wood, this screeding gives the ideal surface for the application of flooring adhesives which is also durable and smooth. This latex screeding will give you a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there's a bit of movement in your subfloor.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screed is being laid on the top of underfloor heating, thicknesses of 50-65mm may be required, and latex floor screeds are not appropriate in this instance.
