Before it is possible to lay a suitable floor covering, whether it's carpet, wood or tile, the floor base should be as flat as possible; this is why screeding a floor is essential. If you want your floors to last a long time then a floor screed is the most important factor in any building or renovation task.

A professional screeding contractor will also tell you if a structural engineer is needed for your undertaking, in order to check on point loadings, load bearing and flex strength that your screed floor might require to conform with current British Standards and building regulations.

Working with a highly trained and qualified specialist will guarantee you use the correct kind of screed for the room's intended purpose and get the optimum lifespan out of the resulting flooring. A correct blend of screed and the methods used in laying it are also vital to guarantee the final intergrity of your floor surface.

Make sure you get at least 2 or 3 quotations for your Waltham based screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each quotation is for. The estimate could be based on what's known as the Surface Regularity, or SR calculation. SR2 and SR3 might be less costly options, but the floor screeding finish may have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect quality of finish. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there are flat spots or ridges that could cause issues when laying your final flooring surface (wood, tile, carpet etc).

TYPES OF SCREED

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

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex material which can achieve 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 sorts of flooring materials to be laid. They can be as little as 1mm thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the area in question as soon as possible a fast drying screed can be utilised. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm/day, subject to the mix, they're generally a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are perfect for flooring projects that have tight schedules.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Polymer screeds are available from a number of screed manufacturers and on account of their varying chemical compositions have specific drying times for each product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use on top of under floor heating. This is due to the improved durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the special fibres within the screed. The screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm/day.

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

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a good quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time must be devoted to preparing the area prior to any screeding material being poured. Any debris, oil, grease and paint on the existing floor surface can adversely affect the adhesion of the screed, and should be eradicated.

If any products are used during this stage it's important to ensure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the surface and it's allowed to dry out naturally. At this point cracks need to be repaired as these can easily travel up through a laid screed and be visible in the completed floor surface. An on-site survey will allow your Waltham screeding contractor to highlight these preparation areas and complete them before commencing to pour the screeding layer.

To protect the flooring materials and screeding layer from moisture rising up through the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed. The damp proof membrane is made out of thick polythene and different layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screed.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon then one additional barrier is needed to prevent the gas from entering from the ground. If radon gas occurs in large amounts then a complete extraction and ventilation system might be needed beneath the layer of screed which will extract any gases that could seep in from the ground.

The final phase of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealer. Primers help with the bonding process and are specialist applications specifically designed for the type of screed that's being applied. These products require professional technicians to apply them in the right proportions by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.

This is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct manner. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and firmly mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement in the course of the screed pouring process. When professionally installed an under floor heating system is an efficient way to warm up a room and good quality screed retains its heat, generating an even level of warmth right across the floor.

The screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and spread onto the base surface. The specific requirements of the room will dictate the type of screeding used. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least twenty four hours delay before it is able to be walked over, and a further 72 hours minimum before you are able to install any flooring materials. If you're laying standard or heavy duty screeds the setting time is increased and you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines so as to get the best possible finish to your floor.

You can test the SR standard of the completed screed once it's hard enough to walk on. The test involves the use of a 2m long straight-edge laid down upon the floor surface and any deviations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there are no deviations of more than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the entire floor.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish isn't required. This level allows for a maximium deviation depth of 10 millimetres.

If your screed floor has been laid with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer will be needed to perform the tests. Using specialist equipment the engineer will assess the screeded surface strength and viability of use in a load bearing environment. The screeding should be given a drop hammer test to gauge strength and flexibility in various areas. Any screeding that's got load bearing requirements must be okayed by a competent structural engineer obeying the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeding Waltham

When a level of flexibility is needed in a floor's surface you might find that using a latex floor screed will be an advantage. Latex screeds typically comprise 2 parts - a cementitious powder and a latex liquid component. Latex screeds are more flexible and quicker drying than other types of screed, as the water which is normally used is substituted with the latex liquid.

Prior to the laying of your chosen decorative surface, this latex product is used for levelling subfloors. Suitable for subfloors of sand/cement, wood, quarry tiles, asphalt and concrete, this gives the ideal surface for the application of flooring adhesives which is also smooth and durable. Even when there's a bit of movement on your sub-floor, this type of latex screed will give you a crack-free, flexible finish.

When using a "floating" screed, i.e. when an unbonded screed is being laid over a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, screed depths of 50 to 75 millimetres may be required, and latex flooring screeds aren't suitable for this purpose.
