The screeding contractor will also let you know if a structural engineer is required for your project, to check on flex strength, load bearing and point loadings that your screed floor may need to conform with British Standards and building regulations.

The skills and training that a screeding contractor brings to your project will guarantee a high quality result and help to extend the lifetime of your floors. There are many different types of screeding and picking the correct mix and laying method is crucial if you are to achieve a quality floor that's fit for purpose and durable.

The Surface Regularity (SR) finish is the figure to look for when receiving a quote from Stocksbridge screeding contractors. Each of the three SR levels provide different levels of finish, with SR1 being the highest, with the smallest amount of deviation over the surface area.

The regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by all Stocksbridge floor screeding contractors and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc.) to confirm their competence and safe working practices. A contractor holding accreditation demonstrates they've been trained and assessed in using these screeding products and can offer a top notch service in all aspects of their installation.

For larger floor screeding projects in factories, hospitals, shops, boutiques, warehouses and schools, specialist commercial screeders in Stocksbridge will be required.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is perfect for regular domestic use and is a mix of sand and cement. This mixture uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. This 5:1 ratio standard screed will dry out at a rate of 1mm per day after laying.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this blend of cement and latex is employed to create SR1 level floor screeding. This self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all kinds of flooring materials to be laid. They can be as little as 1mm in depth, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds deliver maximum strength and durability.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced thickness is required. Polymer screeds are available from a number of manufacturers and on account of their diverse chemical compositions have specific setting times for each individual product.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to use the area ASAP a fast drying screed can be used. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are appropriate for a wide array of projects where the speedier drying rate of three to seven millimetres is advantageous.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used with underfloor heating and is the favoured option in these projects. This is because of the improved strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the special fibres within the screed. It's got a drying rate of one millimetre per day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish that's hard wearing and durable, time must be devoted to preparing the area before any screeding material is poured. Any grease, oil, paint and debris on the original floor surface can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be removed.

If any products are used during this stage it's vital to ensure that no residues of soaps, detergents or other cleaning products are left on the surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. It's essential to mend any cracks or crevices in the surface to prevent them being reflected and "travelling" upwards into your newly screeded floor. During an on-site survey the screeding contractor will notice what preparation work is needed before any actual screeding starts.

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

A further airtight barrier may be needed if your house is in an area that is known to be prone to radon. An air-tight membrane might be sufficient in places with relatively low levels of radon, however in more extreme situations there might need to be a more complicated extraction and ventilation system to remove any ground penetrating radon gases.

Once the base has been prepared and any DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then put on. These primers and sealers will make certain the screed bonds successfully to the base surface and help produce a good quality finished floor. These substances need experienced tradesmen to apply them in the correct proportions by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.

If required, this is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct manner. The heating pipes and cables are securely mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement and ensure they're laid in the correct position. Warmth is evenly spread across a floor area in an expertly installed underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's a good choice for the majority of Stocksbridge renovation projects.

If you aren't putting in under floor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared on site and laid. Your screeding contractor will give you advice on which form of screed is best for your needs, according to your intended use of the room area. Bear in mind that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you're able to walk over any laid surface and at least seventy two hours before any floor coverings can be laid. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds should be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and provide an even and stable floor surface.

Once the screeding has solidified it can be quality checked to verify the SR level. The test involves the use of a 2m straight edge laid on the floor surface and any variations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3mm or less as measured over the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of 5mm across the entire screeded floor.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a quality finish isn't required. This specification allows for a maximium deviation of ten millimetres.

If your screed has been installed with specific load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer is going to be needed to perform the assessment. The assessment will ensure your newly laid screeding is viable for the load point requirements specified in the original site survey. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" will be carried out on different areas of the screed layer and the outcomes noted. Any screed floor that has load bearing requirements must be okayed by a fully qualified structural engineer observing the BS8204 regulations.
