Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favourite choice of professional installers for use in combination with under floor heating systems. The improved strength and flex provided by the special fibres in this screed mix help protect the floor from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. It has a setting rate of one millimetre per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to progress urgently with the flooring on account of time limitations, this screed dries much quicker than standard screeds. Most of the fast drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are appropriate for a wide variety of projects where the quicker curing rate of 3-7mm is an advantage.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is necessary on account of building requirements, a polymer screed provides a high strength resolution to this situation. The curing times vary as outlined by proprietary product guidelines.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will need to prepare the area before proceeding with any other work so as to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. It is crucial that any contaminants such as oil, debris, grease or paint is removed from the floor surface before laying any screed, as these can affect the bonding capability that a quality screed demands.

If cleaning products have been used it is essential to remove any residues of soap, detergent etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor any cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and producing deviations on the finished floor surface. An on-site survey will allow your Sunninghill screeding company to take note of this preparation work and complete it before beginning to pour the screeding.

Before any screeding can be poured a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed to protect the final flooring and screed from moisture. The damp proof membrane is made out of thick polythene sheet and various layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If the area is at risk from radon gas then one additional barrier is necessary to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a complete extraction and ventilation system might be needed beneath the layer of screed which will remove any gases that could seep in from ground level.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeding company will apply a sealer or primer to the prepared base surface. A primer assists in the screed to successfully bond to the base and different types exist based upon which kind of screed is being applied. Equipment such as airless sprays can be used to apply a primer or sealant, by experienced screeding contractors in Sunninghill sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and checked before the screed is applied. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and attached firmly to insulation panels to avoid potential movement in the course of the screed pouring. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system should provide even warmth all over the floor.

Of course, if you are not fitting under floor heating, you can just bypass this step and apply the screeding. Your screeding contractor will give you advice and guidance on which type of screed is suitable for your needs, in line with your intended use of the room. After the application of the screed there's a minimum twenty four hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you are able to walk upon the surface, and a seventy two hour minimum curing period for the laying of any flooring materials. If you're laying heavy duty or standard screeds the curing time is longer and you should observe the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best possible finish for your floor.

Once the screeding has set it can be quality checked to determine the SR level. The standard SR test uses a two metre straight edge to check for any variations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there are no disparities of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you've got a top specification SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor has a deviation from the straight-edge of five millimetres or less it is SR2 level and is the normal standard for commercial and industrial floors.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the quality of finish is comparatively unimportant SR3 is the standard and has a maximum deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is needed to carry out the testing. This assessment will determine the strength of the screed and the suitability for its intended use. The screed will be subjected to a drop hammer test to determine strength and flexibility in different areas. Any screeding that has load bearing requirements must be sanctioned by a fully qualified structural engineer observing the British Standards BS8204 regulations.

Latex Screeding Sunninghill

When the nature of your floor's surface means that a certain degree of flexibility is necessary, it will be best to use a latex self-levelling floor screed, rather than one with a rigid finish. Latex floor screeds come in two parts - a bottle and a bag - with the bottle containing latex liquid and the bag containing a cemetitious powder. The latex liquid part takes the place of the water that is used in other types of screed, meaning that it's quicker drying and more flexible.

Used in the levelling-out of sub-floors, this latex compound provides a surface for the laying of the final floor finishes. This is suitable for use on substrate of concrete, wood, quarry tiles, sand/cement and asphalt, to give a smooth and resilient surface that's perfect for the application of adhesives. This type of latex screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there happens to be movement in your sub-floor.

When using a "floating" screed, i.e. when screed is being laid over underfloor heating, depths of 50mm-65mm may be required, and latex screeds are not a suitable choice in this case.
