Floor screeding will provide a durable, quality floor surface for any room.
FLOOR SCREEDING EXPERTS TAVERHAM
A reliable floor screeding company in Taverham will have knowledge and experience to help you achieve a perfect floor in whatever shape or size of room you're renovating. After analyzing your project they will give you advice about the optimal choice of screed and which strategy for applying it is most suitable for your situation.
They will in addition assess if a structural engineer is needed to ensure that any flex strength, load requirements and point loadings are followed as set out in construction and building regulations.
The skills and training that a certified screeding contractor brings to your project will guarantee a successful end result and help in prolonging the lifetime of your floors. Selecting the right screeding materials and the method of installation is crucial if you want to finish up with a durable and quality finish for your floor.
Before picking out a screeding contractor from those based in the Taverham area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their estimate, and also make certain you get two or three quotations from different contractors. The quote should be based on what's known as the SR, or Surface Regularity figure. Each of the three SR levels provide different levels of finish, with SR1 being the highest quality, with the least amount of deviation over the area. Any imperfections in the final screeding can cause issues with laying flooring because of indentations, ridges, flat spots in the floor surface.
British Standards BS8204 lays out the guidelines and regulations that all Taverham screeding contractors must follow, and if using specialist screeding solutions, (Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor etc), they should be approved by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. The assessment and training of a screeding contractor by a manufacturer is highlighted by the use of the accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any flooring project which involves their materials.
Taverham commercial screeders might be involved in screeding floors in hospitals, hotels, factories, warehouses, schools and shopping centres.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic flooring projects where the blend of cement and sand is okay for regular floor traffic use. The standard screed is a mixture of 5 parts sand to one cement. After being laid a standard screed mixture dries out at a rate of 1mm/day.
Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed due to building requirements, a polymer screed provides a high strength resolution to the problem. The drying times vary according to proprietary product guidelines.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A cement and latex formula which can achieve the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. Largely used to improve a poor substrate level or damaged floor so as to lay a new flooring surface, such as tiling over it. Even with a depth of one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a variety of uses.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where maximum durability and strength is very important.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favoured option where under floor heating is being installed in residential properties in Taverham. This is due to the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the special fibres within the screed. It sets at the same rate as a standard screed, at about 1mm per day.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to move forward urgently with the work due to time constraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard flooring screeds. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, determined by the mixture, they're usually a fibre reinforced type of screed and are great for projects which have tight schedules.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Screeding installers will need to carefully prepare the area prior to any other work in order to guarantee a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. It's crucial that any contaminants such as grease, oil, paint or debris is eradicated from the base before pouring any screed, as these can affect the bonding process that a good quality screed requires.
If cleansing products were used it is vital to remove any residues of detergent, soap etc, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" through your screed layer and resulting in deviations on the finished floor surface. A site survey will allow your Taverham screeding contractor to highlight these preparation areas and complete them before starting to pour the screeding.
Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be put down to shield the screed and final flooring from moisture. There could be two or three layers of different thickness polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.
If your house is located in a place where radon is present a supplementary barrier layer is essential to stop radon gas from seeping through. If radon occurs in large amounts then a full ventilation system may be installed beneath the screed which will extract any gases that are seeping in from the ground.
The final step of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a sealant or primer. Sealers and primers help with the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the sort of screed being applied. Due to their special nature, only certified screeding contractors in Taverham should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and through the use of bespoke equipment for this task.
Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before screeding is applied. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and attached firmly to insulation panels to avoid any movement in the course of the screed installation process. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should give an even warmth across the floor area.
Obviously, if you aren't installing underfloor heating, you can just skip this step and get on with applying the screed. The particular requirements of the room will dictate the type of screeding used. Remember that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you are able to walk over any screeded surfaces and a minimum 72 hours before any floor coverings can be laid. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds should be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and even surface.
The SR level of your screed can be confirmed once it has solidified enough to be walked on. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the floor surface.
- SR1 - SR1 is the best level and allows just 3mm of disparity from the straight-edge.
- SR2 - SR2 is the classification for normal standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
- SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish is not needed. This level can have a maximum permissible deviation of 10mm.
If your screeding has been installed with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be necessary to perform the assessment. The assessment will make certain that your new screeding is suitable for the load point requirements specified in the site survey. The screeding should be subjected to what's known as a drop hammer test to gauge strength and flexibility in distinct areas. Any screed flooring that has point load requirements must be approved by a fully qualified structural engineer respecting the British Standards BS8204 regulations.
