It might be necessary, according to the intended use of the area in question, for a structural engineering survey to conform to building regulations on load requirements, point loadings and flex strength of the screed floor.

Qualified and skilled tradespeople are essential to a successful outcome and will extend the life of your floor through the use of the correct form of screed for your room's allocated purpose. A correct mix of screed and the way it is laid is also important to ensure the ultimate intergrity of your floor.

Ensure you get more than one quotation for your Swanwick screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each quote is for. The price quote could be based on what is called the SR, or Surface Regularity number. SR2 and SR3 may be less costly options, although the floor screeding finish may have errors and deviations, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect quality of finish. This means that you may need to correct any areas that might cause problems when putting down your finished flooring solution.

The regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by any Swanwick floor screeding contractor and they must also be certified by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc.) to substantiate their safe working practices and competence. A contractor holding accreditations proves they've been assessed and trained in the use of these screeding products and can offer a high quality service in all aspects of their installation.

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

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A mixture of cement and sand which is okay for everyday residential usage. The standard screed is a mix of 5 parts sand to 1 of cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of one millimetre thickness per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to move forward urgently with the flooring because of time constraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard flooring screeds. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm/day, depending on the mixture, they are usually a fibre reinforced screed and are ideal for projects which have tight schedules.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured option where under floor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Swanwick. This is because of the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the special fibres within the screed. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement formula which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all forms of flooring materials to be laid. They can be as little as 1mm thick, and thanks to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

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

Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is required. Polymer screeds are made by many screed manufacturers and due to their varying chemical compositions have specific setting times for each product.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To ensure the screeding is of a good quality finish that's hard wearing and durable, time must be spent on fully preparing the area prior to any screeding material being poured. It is important that all contaminants such as paint, oil, grease or debris is eradicated from the floor before laying any screed, because these can affect the bonding capability that a quality floor screed requires.

If any cleaning products were used during this stage it is crucial to ensure that no residues of soaps or detergents are left on the surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. It is necessary to fix any cracks in the floor surface to prevent them being visible and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. A site survey will allow your Swanwick screeding specialist to highlight these preparation areas and complete them before starting to pour the screeding layer.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be applied once the preparation work has been done to prevent ground moisture getting into the flooring materials and screeding. There could be 2 or 3 layers of different thickness polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

A further air-tight barrier might be needed if your home is in a location that is regarded as prone to radon gas. An airtight membrane could be enough in locations with relatively low levels of radon, but in more severe situations there may need to be a more complicated ventilation and extraction system to block any harmful radon gases.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeders will put on a sealer or primer to the prepared floor base. A primer helps with the screed bonding process to the base and different types exist based upon which type of screed is being used. These products require certified contractors to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before screeding is poured. Insulation panels can be positioned and the heating pipes and cables will be securely attached so there's no movement whilst the screed is being poured. When skillfully installed an under floor heating system is an excellent way to warm a room and high quality screed retains its heat, producing an even level of warmth across the floor.

If you're not putting in underfloor heating the screed can now be prepared on site and laid. Your intended use of the room will assist your screeding company on which sort of screed is right for your requirements. After application of the screed there'll be a minimum 24 hours (for quick drying screeds) before you can walk over the surface, and a seventy two hour minimum drying time before the laying of any floor coverings. This timescale is longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's guidelines should be followed to achieve the best finish and longevity of the floor.

You can test the SR level of the finished screeding as soon as it is hard enough for walking on. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge to check for any variations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there are no disparities greater than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the entire screed.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is comparatively immaterial SR3 is the standard and should have a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If your screed floor has been laid with specific loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be necessary to perform the assessment. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will evaluate the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. This will include what is known as a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. The specialist testing and measurement tools required mean this can only be performed by a certified structural engineer applying the guidelines of BS8204.

Latex Screeds Swanwick

When the characteristics of your floor's surface means that a bit of flexibility is required, it will be advantageous to apply a latex screed, rather than one with an unyielding finish. Latex floor screeds normally comprise 2 parts - a cementitious powder and a latex liquid mixture. The liquid latex solution replaces the water which would normally be used for mixing screed, and is much more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds.

Used for levelling-out sub-floors, this latex compound provides a surface for the laying of the final floor finishes. This screeding is suitable for use on subfloors of asphalt, sand/cement, quarry tiles, concrete and wood, to provide a smooth and resilient surface which is perfect for the application of adhesives. If there's a bit of movement in the subfloor this type of screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish on which you can lay your final floor coverings.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screed is being laid on the top of underfloor heating, thicknesses of 50-75mm may be required, and latex floor screeds aren't a suitable choice in this case.
