It may be a requirement, contingent on the intended use of the space, for a structural engineering survey to conform to building regulations on load bearing, point loadings and flex strength of the screed floor.

The training and skills that a certified screeding specialist brings to your project should guarantee a successful end result and help in extending the lifetime of your flooring. The correct blend of screed and the way it is laid is also crucial to guarantee the ultimate intergrity of your floor.

Make sure you get more than one quote for your Tetbury screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each quote is for. The quote should be based on what's called the SR, or Surface Regularity figure. SR1 is the highest standard, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may seem more cost-effective at first glance, they do not guarantee a totally even or flat floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 standard could mean there are ridges or flat spots that could cause problems when laying your final flooring surface (tile, wood, carpet etc).

For larger screeding projects in factories, schools, hotels, hospitals, warehouses and shops, specialist commercial screeders in Tetbury will be needed.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential flooring projects where the mix of cement and sand is ideal for standard footfall usage. This mix uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. After laying a standard flooring screed sets at a rate of 1mm/day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A latex and cement material which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. This self-levelling compound provides a clean and smooth surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all kinds of flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of just one millimetre, but will still provide a strong surface for a varied selection of flooring materials.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum strength and durability in places where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor is necessary.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to progress urgently with the flooring owing to time restraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard screeds. These are generally a fibre reinforced kind of screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm/day per day and are employed in time-sensitive flooring projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred option where under floor heating is being installed in residential homes in Tetbury. This is because of the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the fibres within the screed. It dries at an identical rate to a standard screed of one millimetre per day.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced thickness is needed. Polymer screeds are available from many manufacturers and due to their different chemical compositions have distinct drying times for each individual product.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will need to fully prepare all areas prior to any other work so as to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. The existing floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to eliminate any paint, oil, grease and debris that might adversely affect the adhesion of the screed.

Screeding Near Tetbury (GL8)

If cleansing products have been used it is vital to remove any remnants of detergent or soap, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and producing imperfections on the finished surface. A skilled Tetbury screeding company will address such aspects during a on-site survey and make certain all preparations are finished before applying the next steps in the floor screeding process.

To protect the screeding layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be laid. There may be two or three layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If your property is located in a place where radon is present an additional barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from seeping through. An air-tight membrane might be enough in locations with relatively low emissions of radon, but in more severe situations there might have to be a more sophisticated extraction and ventilation system to remove any harmful radon.

As soon as the base has been properly prepared and all DPMs installed, a sealant or primer is then put on. These sealers and primers will ensure the screed bonds successfully to the base and help accomplish a top quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by certified screeding contractors in Tetbury following the manufacturer's guidelines.

Before any screed is laid, any underfloor heating will now set out and installed. The cables and heating pipes are securely mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement and make certain that they are positioned correctly. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in an expertly installed underfloor heating system, and in conjunction with it being an effective choice of heating, it's an excellent choice for most Tetbury renovation projects.

Naturally, if you aren't putting in under floor heating, you can ignore this stage and get on with applying the screeding. Your proposed use of the room will assist the screeding company on what kind of screed is right for your requirements. After the pouring of the screed there will be a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk on the surface, and a 72 hours minimum setting period before the laying of any floor coverings. If you're laying heavy duty or standard screeds the curing time is longer and you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best finish to your floor.

You can assess the SR level of the completed screed once it's hard enough for walking on. The standard SR test uses a 2 mtr long straight-edge to check for any fluctuations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best level and permits only 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the screed deviates from the straight edge by five millimetres or less it is classified as SR2 level and is the standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the finish is fairly immaterial the SR3 is the standard and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If your screed floor has been installed with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer will be necessary to perform the tests. This test will establish the overall strength of the screeded surface and the suitability for its intended use. The screed should be given a "drop hammer test" to assess flexibility and strength at distinct points. Only trained structural engineers following the British Standards BS8204 regulations are permitted to conduct these tests and sign off on the structural integrity of screed flooring.
