Good preparation is vital for a quality finished screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. Any grease, paint, debris and oil on the original floor level can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eliminated.

If any cleaning products were used during this stage it is crucial to make certain that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the surface and it's permitted to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" through a screed layer and causing deviations on the final floor surface. A site survey will allow your Thurnscoe screeding installer to take note of this preparation work and finish it before commencing to apply the screed layer.

To shield the screeding layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be installed. Different gauges of special polythene may be used as a DPM and also act as a barrier for the screed and any insulation materials.

Another airtight barrier could be required if your home is in a location that's regarded as prone to radon gas emissions. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a complete extraction and ventilation system might be needed under the screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from ground level.

The final step of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealer. A primer assists in the screed to bond to the base surface and different varieties exist based upon which screed type is being applied. Due to their special nature, only certified screeding specialists in Thurnscoe should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and using equipment which is made for this task.

Before any screed is poured, any under floor heating (if required) will now be installed. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and firmly secured to insulation panels to stop any movement in the course of the screed pouring. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a properly installed system will deliver even warmth in all areas of the floor.

Needless to say, if you're not putting in under floor heating, you can skip this step and apply the floor screed. Your screeding specialist will give you advice and guidance on which sort of screed is best for your needs, in line with your intended use of the room area. After the application of the screed there's at least 24 hours (for quick drying screeds) before you are able to walk over the surface, and a 72 hrs minimum setting time for the laying of any floor coverings. Such timescales will be longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's guidelines must be followed to create the best finish and durability of the floor.

The SR level of your screed can be checked once it has set sufficiently to be stepped onto. Using a two metre straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any dips, ridges and deviations in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Over the whole floor area, if there aren't any disparities of more than three millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top level SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is relatively immaterial the SR3 is the standard and has a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

There might also be a requirement for a structural engineer to perform a soundness test. The testing will make certain that your newly laid screeded surface is suitable for the load bearing requirements laid out in the site survey. This will include what is known as a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. The specialist testing and measurement tools required mean that this can only be performed by a trained structural engineer following the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screed Thurnscoe

It may be an advantage to use a latex self-levelling screeding when a bit of flexibility is needed in the surface of a floor. Latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cemetitious powder, and the bottle containing a liquid latex. The water that is normally used in a screed mix is replaced by the latex liquid, meaning that it is quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed.

Used for levelling-out sub-floors, this latex product creates a surface for the laying of your chosen floor finish. This is appropriate for substrate made of wood, concrete, asphalt, sand/cement or stone tiles, is perfect for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a smooth, resilient surface. This type of latex screeding will provide a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there is movement in your subfloor.

Latex floor screeds are not suitable where a "floating" screed is required, for example when a screed is being laid on top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, such as may be the case when you are screeding on top of underfloor heating, and thicknesses of 50mm-75mm may be needed.
