They'll in addition assess if a structural engineer is needed to ensure that any point loadings, flex strength and load bearing are met in accordance with construction and building regulations.

Qualified and skilled workers are imperative for a successful result and will extend the life of your floor through the use of the right form of screed for the proposed purpose of your room. The correct blend of screed and the way it is laid is also vital to ensure the ultimate intergrity of your floor surface.

Before picking out a floor screeding contractor from the many operating in the Whitnash area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their estimate, and also make certain you get two or three estimates. For residential homes a quote will usually be given for a Surface Regularity (SR) calculation of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the highest quality, and whilst SR2 and SR3 might seem less costly at first glance, they do not guarantee a perfectly even or flat floor surface. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there are flat spots or ridges that could cause problems when installing your final flooring surface (wood, carpet, tile etc).

Every Whitnash screeding company must stick to British Standards (BS8204) and should have accreditation from the manufacturers of specialised screeding materials and equipment, e.g. Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol. This accreditation program demonstrates a firm's ability and training in the application of a manufacturer's products.

For the screeding of floors in hospitals, shopping centres, schools, factories, warehouses and boutiques, specialist commercial screeders in Whitnash will be required.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - A mixture of sand and cement which is okay for basic residential use. This mixture uses a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. The standard flooring screed will dry at a rate of one millimetre thickness per day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Made for maximum strength and durability in areas where traffic is high or specific loading of the floor is needed.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to use the area in question as soon as possible a fast drying screed can be utilised. They're usually a fibre reinforced kind of screed that dries out at a rate of between 3-7mm per day and are used in time critical projects.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for domestic use over the top of under floor heating. The fibres in this screed improve overall durability and strength whilst also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It's got a setting rate of 1mm per day.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially where SR1 levels are required, by a cement and latex formula. Largely used to finish off a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like vinyl planks over the top of it. This liquid screed can be poured to a depth of just 1mm, but will still provide a high strength base to take a wide range of flooring finishes.

Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a minimal thickness. Maker's guidelines for setting times differ across the various product ranges.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will have to prepare all areas before any other work in order to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any grease, oil, debris and paint on the original floor surface can affect the bonding of the screed, and should be removed.

Any cleaning chemicals used during this phase should leave no residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. It's necessary to fix any cracks or crevices in the surface to stop them being visible and "travelling" up into the newly screeded floor. A reliable Whitnash screeding installer will pick up on such problems during a site survey and make certain all preparations are complete before applying the next stages of the floor screeding process.

Before the screeding can be poured a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be put down to protect the final flooring and screed from moisture. The damp proof membrane is made out of thick polythene sheeting and various layers could be used to act as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screed.

If the area where you live is at risk from radon then one additional barrier is necessary to prevent the gas from entering from the ground. A simple airtight membrane might be suitable in places with low levels of radon, however in more extreme cases there might need to be a more complex extraction system to block any ground penetrating radon.

As soon as the floor base has been prepared and all membranes installed, a sealant or primer is then put on. A primer assists in the screed bonding process to the base surface and different types exist based on which kind of screed is being used. These materials need skilled tradesmen to apply them in the correct ratios by using tailor-made equipment, such as airless sprays.

This is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and attached firmly to insulation panels to prevent any movement in the course of the screed pouring. Warmth will be spread evenly across a floor area in a skillfully installed under floor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient method of heating, it is an ideal choice for many Whitnash home restoration projects.

The screed can now be prepared on site and applied to the floor base. The requirements of the room will determine the form of screeding that is used. After the application of the screed there is at least twenty four hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you can walk upon the surface, and a 72 hours minimum drying time for any floor covering installation. Such time periods will be longer for standard and heavy duty screeds and the manufacture's product guidelines should be followed to the letter to achieve the optimum finish and longevity of the floor.

As soon as the screed has hardened it can be checked for quality to ascertain the SR level. Using a 2 metre straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any dips, deviations and ridges in the surface of the screed.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest quality and permits only 3 millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the entire screeded surface.
  • SR3 - For other floors where the quality of finish is fairly inconsequential the SR3 is the specification and has a maximum deviation measurement of 10 millimetres or less.

If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is required to conduct the testing. This test will establish the overall strength of the screed surface and the viability for its proposed use. A "drop hammer test" is performed at several areas on the screed layer and the outcomes noted. The specialist testing and measurement tools needed mean that this can only be undertaken by a trained structural engineer obeying the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Floor Screeds Whitnash

When a floor's surface needs a bit of flexibility, it is better to use a latex self-levelling floor screed. Usually coming in two parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cementitious powder and a latex liquid mixture. The latex liquid solution actually replaces the water that would typically be used in a screed mix, and is much more flexible and quicker drying than standard screeds.

Used in the levelling of subfloors, this latex product provides a suitable surface for the installation of the final floor finishes. Appropriate for substrate of wood, concrete, quarry tiles, sand/cement and asphalt, this screeding gives the ideal surface for the application of adhesives which is also resilient and smooth. Even if there is a bit of movement in your subfloor, this latex floor screed will produce a crack-free, flexible finish.

When installing a "floating" screed, i.e. when a screed is being laid over a layer of acoustic or thermal insulation, thicknesses of 50mm-75mm may be required, and latex floor screeds aren't appropriate for this purpose.
