Your screeding contractor will also tell you if a structural engineer is needed for your project, in order to check on any flex strength, load bearing and point loadings that your flooring may need to conform with British Standards and building regulations.

The training and skills that a qualified screeding technician brings to your project should guarantee a high quality end result and help to extend the lifespan of your flooring. The correct mix of screed and the techniques used for laying it are also important to ensure the final quality of your floor surface.

There are several screeding contractors in and around Whiston so if possible get multiple quotations for your project before picking a contractor and know to what standard of finish is it for. The quote may be based on what's called the SR, or Surface Regularity figure. SR2 and SR3 could be more affordable options, although the finished floor surface may have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a pretty much perfect finish. An SR2 or SR3 standard could mean there are ridges or flat spots that could cause problems when laying your final floor surface.

The rules and regulations set out in in the British Standards BS8204 must be observed by any Whiston floor screeding company and they must also be accredited by the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Gypsol, Flowcrete, Cemfloor etc.) to demonstrate their competence and safe working practices. This accreditation scheme showcases a company's performance and training in the usage of a manufacturer's merchandise.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Used in residential flooring projects where the combination of sand and cement is perfect for everyday footfall usage. The ratios involved in standard screeds are five parts sand to one part cement. This 5 to 1 ratio standard flooring screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm per day after laying.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use on top of under floor heating. This is due to the increased durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the fibres within the screed mix. At roughly one millimetre per day, it has an identical setting rate to standard screed.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - A latex and cement material which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. It is mostly needed to provide a clean, smooth floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a surface onto which all types of flooring materials can be laid. The liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of just one millimetre, but still provides a high strength surface for a selection of flooring materials.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that's designed for high load and heavy traffic areas where the maximum possible strength and durability is essential.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to press ahead urgently with the flooring due to time restraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard flooring screeds. They're generally a fibre reinforced type of screed that dries out at a rate of between three and seven millimetres per day and are used in time-sensitive projects.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a lower thickness. Manufacturer's guidelines for drying times are different across the product ranges.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To ensure that the screeding is of a high quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time should be spent on carefully preparing the area prior to any screed being poured. The existing floor surface should be cleaned to remove any debris, oil, paint and grease which can adversely affect the bond of the screeding.

If any cleaning products were used in this process it is vital to make certain that no residues of soaps, detergents or other cleaning products are left on the floor surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. It is essential to mend any crevices or cracks in the base to stop them being mirrored and "travelling" upwards into your freshly screeded floor. A reputable Whiston screeding contractor will address these issues during the on-site survey and make certain all preparations are completed before applying the next steps in the screeding process.

Before any screeding can be poured a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed to shield the screed and final flooring from moisture damage. The DPM is made of thick polythene sheeting and different layers may be used to act as a moisture barrier for the screeding.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon then a further barrier is needed to stop the gas from entering from the ground. This can be just a simple airtight membrane, or in severe situations an extraction and ventilation system is installed beneath the floor screed to take away any inflow of radon gas from ground level.

Once the floor base has been prepared and any DPMs installed, a primer or sealer is then put on. These primers and sealers will make sure that the screed bonds effectively to the base and help to produce a quality finished floor. Equipment such as airless sprays are used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by certified screeding installers in Whiston sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before the screed is poured. The wires and heating pipes are securely mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement and make certain that they are laid in the correct position. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in an expertly fitted under floor heating system, and along with it being an effective method of heating, it is an excellent choice for most Whiston renovation projects.

Of course, if you are not installing under floor heating, you can just ignore this stage and get on with applying the screed. Your screeding contractor will have given you advice on which screed type is best for your needs, in line with your proposed use of the room. Don't forget that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk on any screeded surface and a minimum 72 hours before any flooring can be fitted. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for heavy duty and standard screeds should be followed in order to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and long lasting floor surface.

The SR standard of your screeding can be confirmed once it has solidified enough to be walked on. Using a 2m straight-edge the surface is checked for any deviations, dips and ridges in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - Deviations of three millimetres or less as measured across the whole floor area shows your screeding to be of the finest quality and classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the entire floor surface.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the whole space is 10 millimetres or less the quality of the screeding is classified as SR3 and is the standard required for utility and garage areas.

If you require load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is needed to perform the testing. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will establish the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. The screed should be subjected to a drop hammer test to determine strength and flexibility at various points. Any screed flooring that's got load bearing requirements must be okayed by a trained structural engineer observing the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screed Whiston

It is best to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a degree of flexibility is necessary in the surface of a floor. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cement powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex mixture. The liquid latex additive actually replaces the water which would normally be used for mixing floor screed, and is quicker drying and much more flexible than standard screeds.

This latex screed is used to level a subfloor before the final decorative surface is laid. This screeding is appropriate for substrate made of concrete, quarry tiles, wood, sand/cement or asphalt, is ideal for the application of flooring adhesives and gives a resilient, smooth surface. Even where there is a bit of movement on your sub-floor, this latex screeding will provide a crack-free, flexible finish.

When using a "floating" screed, i.e. when screed is being laid over underfloor heating, depths of 50 to 65 millimetres may be necessary, and latex screeds are not suitable for this purpose. (Tags: Latex Floor Screed Whiston, Latex Screed Whiston, Latex Screeding Whiston, Latex Screeds Whiston).
