The training and skills that a screeding technician brings to your project will guarantee a high quality outcome and help to lengthen the lifetime of your floor or floors. Picking the right screeding materials and the best installation technique is crucial if you want to end up with a quality and durable finish for your floor surface.

Before selecting a screeding contractor from the many based in the Wadebridge area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their quotation, and also make certain that you get two or three price quotes. For residential properties an estimate will usually be given for a Surface Regularity (SR) standard of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the best standard, and while SR2 and SR3 may seem cheaper initially, they don't guarantee a perfectly flat or even floor surface. Any errors or imperfections in the final screeding can cause issues with laying flooring because of flat spots, indentations, ridges in the floor surface.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is acceptable for basic domestic use and is a blend of sand and cement. The standard screed is a mixture of five parts sand to one of cement. After laying a standard screed sets at a rate of just 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is required on account of building factors, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to this situation. Polymer screeds are made by a number of screed manufacturers and owing to their different chemical compositions have specific curing times for each individual product.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex mixture. It is primarily needed to produce a smooth, level floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a surface onto which all types of flooring materials can be laid. Even with a thickness of just one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The preferred choice by professional installers for use in combination with underfloor heating systems. The improved flex and strength provided by the fibres within this screed help protect the flooring from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. At about one millimetre per day, it has a similar curing rate to standard floor screed.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to move forward urgently with the work because of time constraints, these screeds dry more speedily than standard flooring screeds. They're typically a fibre reinforced screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are employed in time-sensitive projects.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time should be spent on fully preparing the area before any screeding material is laid. It's vital that all contaminants such as grease, oil, paint or debris is eradicated from the base before laying any screed, as these can affect the bonding capability that a good quality floor screed needs.

Screeding Near Wadebridge (PL27)

If cleansing products have been used it is crucial to remove any remnants of detergent or soap, and allow the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor any cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" through your screed layer and causing deviations on the finished floor surface. A reliable Wadebridge screeding contractor will take note of these issues during the on-site survey and make certain that all preparations are finished before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be put down after the preparation work has been done to stop ground dampness affecting the screed and floor materials. There could be 2 or 3 layers of varying thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

If your house is located in an area where radon is found a supplementary barrier layer is essential to stop radon gas from getting through. A simple airtight membrane may be sufficient in places with low radon emissions, however in more extreme situations there may need to be a more complicated extraction and ventilation system to block any harmful radon.

The final stage of surface preparation is the spraying or painting of a sealant or primer. Sealers and primers help with the bonding process and are special applications specifically designed for the type of screed that is being used. Devices such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by experienced screeding installers in Wadebridge observing the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

If required, this is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. Insulation panels will be laid out and the cables and heating pipes will be securely fastened so that there is no movement while the screed is applied. Warmth is evenly spread across the floor in a properly installed under floor heating system, and along with it being an efficient choice of heating, it is a great choice for many Wadebridge home renovation projects.

Naturally, if you are not installing under floor heating, you simply bypass this step and apply the screeding. The particular requirements of the room will determine the form of screeding that's used. Remember that even quick drying and advanced screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk over any screeded surfaces and a minimum 72 hours before any flooring materials can be fitted. If you're looking to wind up with a well finished and long-lasting floor surface you should follow the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to standard and heavy duty screeds where this waiting period will be increased.

As soon as the screeding has set it can be checked for quality to establish its SR level. The basic SR test involves the use of a 2 mtr straight edge to check for any variations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less as measured over the entire floor area shows your screeding to be of the highest quality and is specified as SR1.
  • SR2 - If the floor surface has a deviation from the straight-edge of five millimetres or less it is SR2 level and is the standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the finish is fairly unimportant the SR3 is the specification and has a deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If your screeding has been installed with specific loading in mind then a structural engineer will be needed to conduct the tests. The testing will make certain that your new screeding is viable for the load bearing requirements specified in the original site survey. This can include a drop hammer test which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. Any screeding that's got point load requirements must be approved by a trained structural engineer obeying the BS8204 regulations.

Latex Screed Wadebridge

It is better to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a bit of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface. Generally coming in 2 parts, latex screeds comprise a cement-based smoothing compound, and a liquid latex additive. The latex liquid solution actually replaces the water which would normally be used in a screed mix, and is much more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds.

Before the installation of the final decorative covering, this latex product is used for levelling sub-floors. Suitable for subfloors of asphalt, concrete, sand/cement, wood and stone tiles, this screeding gives a perfect surface for the application of flooring adhesives which is resilient and smooth. This type of latex screeding will provide a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there's a bit of movement in your sub-floor.

With a "floating" screed, for example when an unbonded screed is being laid over a membrane of thermal or acoustic insulation, latex screeds will not be suitable. Floating screeds with a depth of 50mm-65mm are normally used on top of underfloor heating.
