TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Frequently used in residential projects where the mix of sand and cement is good for everyday floor traffic use. The standard screed is a mixture of 5 parts sand to 1 of cement. The standard screed dries at a rate of one millimetre thickness per day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry rapidly and allow you to use the floor area much sooner. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, determined by the mix, they're normally a fibre reinforced kind of screed and are perfect for flooring projects which have tight schedules.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is needed this formula of cement and latex is employed to create SR1 level screed flooring. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all flooring materials to be laid. These can be as little as 1mm thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Designed for maximum strength and durability in areas where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor is needed.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with under floor heating and is the advised choice in these projects. The fibres in this screed enhance overall strength and durability whilst also protecting against thermal cracking and shrinkage. It has a drying rate of 1mm per day.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is needed because of construction requirements, a polymer screed provides a high strength resolution to this problem. Polymer screeds are made by a number of screed manufacturers and because of their diverse chemical compositions have specific drying times for each individual product.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will need to carefully prepare all areas before any other work in order to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. The existing floor surfaces should be cleaned to eradicate any oil, grease, debris and paint which can affect the bond of the screed.

Any cleansing chemicals used in this phase shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor then all cracks should be repaired to stop them from "travelling" through a screed layer and producing deviations on the final floor surface. During a site survey your Wellington screeding installer will be able to see what preparation work is necessary before starting to work on the actual screeding.

To shield the flooring materials and screeding layer from moisture rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be laid. The damp proof membrane is made of thick polythene and various layers might be used to serve as a moisture barrier for the screeding.

Another airtight barrier could be necessary if your home is in an area that is known to be susceptible to radon gas emissions. This could be just a simple airtight membrane, or in severe cases a ventilation system will be installed under the screed to draw out any influx of radon gas from the ground.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeding company will put on a primer or sealer to the prepared base surface. A primer helps with the screed to successfully bond to the base surface and different varieties exist according to which screed type is being applied. These substances require professional tradesmen to apply them in the appropriate proportions by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

Now is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. The wires and heating pipes are securely mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure they're laid in the correct position. Warmth will be evenly spread across the floor in a properly installed underfloor heating system, and with it being an effective choice of heating, it is an ideal choice for most Wellington home renovation projects.

If you are not installing underfloor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and laid. Your use of the room will assist your screeding contractor on which type of floor screed is right for your needs. For quick drying screeds there will be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked over, and a further 3 days minimum before you can lay any flooring materials. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds should be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with an even and stable surface.

You can test the SR level of the finished screeding once it is set enough for walking on. The test involves using a two metre straight edge laid on the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the whole floor area, if there are no disparities of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 standard surface.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by up to five millimetres.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a quality finish isn't necessary. This specification allows for a maximium deviation depth of 10mm.

If your screed has been installed with particular loading in mind then a qualified structural engineer is going to be required to perform these soundness tests. Using specialist equipment the engineer will assess the screeding strength and viability of use in a load bearing setting. This should include a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the flexibility and strength of the screed. Any screed flooring that has load bearing requirements must be okayed by a certified structural engineer observing the BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screed Wellington

It is best to use a latex screeding when a bit of flexibility is necessary in the surface of a floor. Latex floor screed comes in 2 parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cement based compound, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex mixture. Latex screeds are quicker drying and more flexible than other types of screed, because the water that's normally used is exchanged for the liquid latex.

Used for levelling-out subfloors, this latex compound provides a suitable surface for the laying of your chosen floor finishes. This screed is suitable for use on substrate of wood, concrete, stone tiles, asphalt and sand/cement, to give a durable, smooth surface that's perfect for the application of adhesives. This type of screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there happens to be movement in your subfloor.

Latex flooring screeds are not appropriate where a "floating" screed is required, for example when a screed is being laid on top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation, such as could be the case when you're screeding over underfloor heating, and thicknesses of 50-65mm may be required.
