They'll additionally assess if a structural engineer is necessary to make certain that any flex strength, load requirements and point loadings are followed as laid down in the building regulations.

Working with a qualified and highly trained specialist will ensure that you use the right kind of screed for the room's intended usage to extend the lifetime of your flooring. A correct mixture of screed and the methods used for laying it are also crucial to guarantee the ultimate quality of your floor.

Ensure that you get at least two or three quotes for your Sudbury based screeding project and also ask to what standard you are getting a quote. For domestic homes an estimate will usually be given for an SR (Surface Regularity) level of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the highest standard, and while SR2 and SR3 might seem less expensive initially, they don't guarantee a totally even or flat surface. This means that you might have to correct any patches that could cause issues when putting down your final flooring solution.

The rules and regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 must be followed by all Sudbury floor screeding contractors and they should also be approved by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc.) to substantiate their competence and safe working practices. The assessment and training of a floor screeding contractor by a manufacturer is emphasised through this accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any project which involves their materials.

Sudbury commercial screeders will be involved in floor screeding in schools, factories, hospitals, boutiques, warehouses and shops.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Widely used in domestic projects where the mixture of cement and sand is good for standard floor traffic use. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. Once laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of one millimetre each day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex compound. This is primarily needed to provide a smooth, clean floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. They can be as little as 1mm in depth, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the area in question as quickly as possible a fast drying screed can be employed. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, determined by the mixture, they are typically a fibre reinforced screed and are perfect for projects that have tight deadlines.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Polymer screeds are made by a number of screed manufacturers and due to their different chemical compositions have distinct curing times for each product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use on top of under floor heating. This is due to the improved strength and protection against thermal shrinkage and cracking provided by the special fibres within the screed mix. It's got a setting rate of 1mm per day.

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 provide maximum durability and strength.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will need to prepare all areas before proceeding with any other work in order to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. The original floor surface should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any debris, grease, paint and oil that might adversely affect the adhesion of the screed.

Any cleaning products that are used during this stage shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and producing deviations on the final floor surface. A site survey will allow the screeding specialist to pinpoint this preparation work and finish it before beginning to apply the screed layer.

Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture. The DPM is made from thick polythene and various layers could be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screeding.

If your property is situated in a place where radon gas is present an extra barrier layer is needed to stop radon gas from getting through. An airtight membrane could be sufficient in areas with low radon emissions, but in more extreme situations there might have to be a more complex ventilation and extraction system to take away any harmful radon gases.

Once the floor base has been prepared and all membranes installed, a sealant or primer is then put on. These sealers and primers will make sure the screed bonds successfully to the base and help to accomplish a good quality finished floor. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, by qualified screeding installers in Sudbury following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before screeding is poured. Insulation panels will be put in position and the cables and heating pipes will be securely fastened so that there is no movement whilst the screed is being applied. Warmth is spread evenly across a floor area in a skillfully installed underfloor heating system, and with it being an effective choice of heating, it's a great choice for many Sudbury home restoration projects.

Of course, if you're not installing under floor heating, you can just bypass this step and apply the screeding. Your intended use of the room will assist your screeding contractor on which type of floor screed is perfect for your requirements. Don't forget that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk over any screeded surfaces and at least three days before any floor coverings can be laid. Such timescales will be longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's instructions must be followed to the letter to create the optimum finish and longevity of the floor.

The SR standard of your screeding can be confirmed once it's solidified enough to be walked upon. Through the use of a 2 mtr straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any ridges, dips and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any disparities greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, you've got a top specification SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the entire screed.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is comparatively unimportant SR3 is the standard and should have a maximum deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If you need to check the screeded floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is needed to carry out the tests. The testing will make sure that your new screed surface is suitable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the original site survey. This will include what's known as a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. Any screeding that has load bearing requirements must be okayed by a trained structural engineer heeding the British Standards BS8204 regulations.
