FLOOR SCREEDING CONTRACTORS WATERLOOVILLE

A dependable floor screeding contractor in Waterlooville will have all the knowledge and experience to help you achieve a perfect floor in whichever shape or size of room you are working on. After assessing your project they'll advise you about the perfect choice of screed and which strategy for applying it is most suitable for your situation.

Floor Screeding Waterlooville Hampshire (PO7)

It may be necessary, based on the intended use of the area in question, for a structural engineering survey to conform to building regulations on load requirements, point loadings and flex strength of the screed floor.

Working with a skilled and qualified contractor will guarantee that you get the appropriate form of screed for the room's intended usage to extend the lifetime of your floor. Selecting the appropriate 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 choosing a screeding company from those operating in the Waterlooville area, ask to what standard of finish they're basing their quotation, and also ensure you get multiple quotations from different contractors. For domestic properties a quote will generally be provided for a Surface Regularity (SR) calculation of SR1 or SR2. Each of the three SR levels offer different qualities of finish, with SR1 offering the highest quality, with the lowest amount of deviation over the area. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there will be ridges or flat spots that could cause problems when installing your final flooring surface (carpet, tile, wood etc).

The rules and regulations laid down in the British Standards BS8204 must be followed by all Waterlooville floor screeding contractors and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete etc.) to prove their safe working practices and competence. A company holding accreditations indicates they have been assessed and trained in the use of these products and can offer a high standard of service in all aspects of their installation.

For larger screeding projects in hospitals, warehouses, schools, pubs, shops and factories, specialist commercial screeders in Waterlooville will be required.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic projects where the blend of sand and cement is good for everyday floor traffic use. The ratios involved in standard screeds are five parts sand to one part cement. This 5:1 ratio standard flooring screed will set hard at a rate of just one millimetre per day after application.

Screeding Quotes Waterlooville Hampshire

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are needed, by a latex and cement solution. Typically used to finalise a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a new flooring surface, such as vinyl planks on the top of it. Even with a thickness of 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 expected to be high or heavy loading of the floor is necessary, heavy duty screeds provide maximum durability and strength.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, this screed dries at a quicker rate and allows you to use the floor area much faster. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, depending on the mixture, they are usually a fibre reinforced type of screed and are perfect for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is required. Polymer screeds are made by many manufacturers and on account of their varying chemical compositions have distinct drying times for each product.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use on top of underfloor heating. This is because of the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage offered by the special fibres within the screed mix. It has a setting rate of 1mm per day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To make sure that the screeding is of a high quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time must be spent on preparing the area prior to any screeding material being laid. It's important that all contaminants such as paint, debris, grease or oil is removed from the floor before pouring any screed, because these can affect the adhesion process that a good quality floor screed requires.

Any cleaning chemicals used in this phase shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor base must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. It's necessary to mend any cracks in the surface to avoid them being reflected and "travelling" upwards into your newly screeded floor. A competent Waterlooville screeding installer will pick up on such aspects during the site survey and make sure that all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

Before the screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed to shield the screed and final flooring from moisture. Different gauges of polythene sheeting may be used as a damp proof membrane and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon gas then a further barrier is essential to prevent this harmful gas from entering from the ground. A simple airtight membrane could be suitable in places with low radon emissions, but in more serious cases there may have to be a more complex extraction system to block any ground penetrating radon gases.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeding company will put on a primer or sealer to the prepared floor base. These primers and sealers will ensure the screed bonds effectively to the floor base and help create a quality finished floor. These materials need certified contractors to apply them in the right proportions by using airless sprays and other custom-made equipment.

Now is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. Insulation panels can be laid out and the wires and heating pipes will be firmly attached to prevent any movement while the screed is being poured. Underfloor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system will give an even warmth across the floor area.

Needless to say, if you aren't putting in underfloor heating, you can bypass this step and apply the screeding. Your screeding specialist will give you advice on which type of screed is best for your requirements, according to your proposed use of the room area. Remember that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk over any screeded surfaces and at least 72 hours before any floor coverings can be applied. If you're hoping to wind up with a well finished and hard-wearing floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regard to heavy duty and standard screeds where this time period will be increased.

As soon as the screed has set it can be checked for quality to confirm its SR standard. Through the use of a two metre straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any ridges, deviations and dips in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - Over the entire floor area, if there aren't any disparities greater than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard floors in commercial and industrial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to five millimetres.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is ten millimetres or less the screed quality is specified as SR3 and is the standard required for utility and garage areas.

It might also be necessary for a qualified structural engineer to conduct a soundness test. The testing will make certain that your newly laid screeded surface is viable for the load bearing requirements specified in the site survey. This will include a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Any screed floor that's got load bearing requirements must be okayed by a certified structural engineer heeding the British Standards BS8204 regulations.

Latex Floor Screed Waterlooville

It is best to use a latex floor screed when a certain amount of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface. Latex floor screeds come in two parts - a bottle and a bag - with the bottle containing latex liquid and the bag containing a cement powder. The latex liquid solution replaces the water that's used in normal screeds, meaning that it is quicker drying and more flexible.

This latex screed product is used to level a subfloor before the final decorative surface is laid. This is suitable for substrate made of wood, concrete, sand/cement, asphalt or quarry tiles, is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a durable and smooth surface. If there happens to be any movement in the subfloor this latex screeding will give you a flexible, crack-free finish on which to lay your final floor coverings.

When an unbonded screed is being laid over a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation (i.e. a "floating" screed), latex screeds are not appropriate, because in this case (generally when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you will likely need a screed thickness of 50 to 65 millimetres.
