The regulations and guidelines laid down in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by any Street floor screeding contractor and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc.) to substantiate their safe working practices and competence. This accreditation program highlights a company's high quality performance and training in the use of a manufacturer's merchandise.

For the screeding of floors in factories, warehouses, hospitals, schools, salons and shops, specialist Street commercial screeders will be required.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Widely used in domestic flooring projects where the mix of sand and cement is ideal for normal floor traffic use. The standard screed is a mixture of 5 parts sand to 1 of cement. After being laid a standard flooring screed mix dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with underfloor heating and is the recommended option in such projects. This is because of the increased durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the fibres within the screed. The screed will set hard at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Screeding Quotes Street Somerset

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum durability and strength on floors where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor is required.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area in question ASAP a fast drying screed may be used. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are suitable for a wide range of flooring projects where the quicker curing rate of three to seven millimetres is advantageous.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced thickness is essential. Polymer screeds are made by a number of manufacturers and on account of their different chemical compositions have specific drying times for each product.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A cement and latex material which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of only 1mm, but still provides a high strength surface to take a wide range of flooring materials.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Good preparation is vital for a top quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The original floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eliminate any paint, debris, grease and oil which might adversely affect the bond of the screed.

Screeding Near Street (BA16)

If cleaning products were used it is essential to remove any residues of soap, detergent etc, and allow the surface to dry naturally. At this stage cracks need to be repaired since these can easily travel up through a newly laid screed and be reflected in the completed floor surface. An on-site survey will allow the screeding company to take note of these preparation areas and complete them before beginning to pour the screeding.

Before any screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be put down to shield the final flooring and screed from dampness. There may be 2 or 3 layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon then an additional barrier is needed to stop the gas from entering from the ground. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a full ventilation system might be needed underneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that are seeping in from the ground.

Once the base has been prepared and all DPMs installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. These sealers and primers will ensure the screed bonds effectively to the base surface and help produce a top quality finished floor. Devices such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by certified screeding contractors in Street sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.

If required, this is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. Insulation panels will be put in place and the heating pipes and wires will be securely fastened to prevent any movement while the screed is being poured. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system will provide even level of warmth all over the floor.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared on site and poured onto the base. Your use of the room will help your screeding company on which kind of floor screed is ideal for your needs. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 72 hours minimum before any flooring material can be fitted. If you are looking to wind up with a properly finished and hard-wearing floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to heavy duty and standard screeds where this time period will be increased.

The SR level of your screeding can be checked once it's solidified enough to be walked on. Through the use of a 2 metre straight-edge the surface is checked for any dips, deviations and ridges in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest specification and permits only 3 millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to 5mm.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is categorised as SR3 and is fine for utility and garage areas.

If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to carry out the testing. This test will ascertain the strength of the screed surface and its suitability for the intended use. An assessment called the "drop hammer test" is carried out on various areas of the screed layer and the outcomes documented. Only certified structural engineers obeying the BS8204 regulations are permitted to perform such testing and sign off on the structural integrity of a screed floor.

Latex Screeding Street

It is best to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a certain amount of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor. Latex screeds normally comprise 2 parts - a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex additive. The latex liquid additive replaces the water that is used in standard screeds, meaning it is more flexible and quicker drying.

This latex screed product is used to level-out a subfloor prior to the final decorative surface being laid. This screeding is appropriate for substrate made from stone tiles, asphalt, concrete, sand/cement or wood, is ideal for the application of adhesives and gives a durable and smooth surface. Even when there happens to be a bit of movement on your subfloor, this type of screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish.

When a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex floor screeds aren't a suitable choice, because in cases like this (usually when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you will likely need a thickness of 50-65mm.
