TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Widely used in domestic projects where the blend of cement and sand is perfect for regular footfall use. The ratios involved are five parts sand to one part cement. After laying a standard flooring screed sets at a rate of 1mm/day.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there's a need to press ahead urgently with the flooring due to time constraints, this screed dries much faster than standard flooring screeds. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, depending on the mixture, they are generally a fibre reinforced screed and are great for projects that have tight deadlines.

Polymer Screeds - Provides an extremely high level of strength with a reduced thickness. Polymer screeds are made by many manufacturers and on account of their diverse chemical compositions have specific curing times for each individual product.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is required this compound of latex and cement is used to produce SR1 level floor screeding. Mainly used to finish off a poor substrate level or damaged floor to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, like vinyl planks over it. These can be as little as one millimetre thick, and due to the latex polymers, will still provide a high strength finish.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favourite choice of professional screeders for use in combination with underfloor heating systems. The special fibres in this screed enhance it's strength and durability while also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It's got a drying rate of one millimetre per day.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will need to carefully prepare the area before proceeding with any other work so as to ensure a high quality and hard wearing screed flooring. Any oil, debris, paint and grease on the existing floor level can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and must be removed.

If cleansing products were used it's crucial to remove any residues of soap, detergent etc, and leave the floor surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor all cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" through a screed layer and producing deviations on the finished surface. An on-site survey will enable your Wigston screeding specialist to pinpoint these preparation areas and complete them before starting to pour the screeding.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from dampness rising up from the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be installed. Different gauges of polythene sheets may be used as a damp proof membrane and also serve as a barrier for the screed and any insulation material.

If the area is at risk from radon then another barrier is required to stop the gas from entering via the ground. If radon gas occurs in severe doses then a complete ventilation system may be installed under the layer of screed which will remove any gases that might seep in from the ground.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeders will apply a sealant or primer to the prepared base. Primers and sealers assist with the bonding process and are special applications matched to the sort of screed that is being applied. Devices such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, by professional screeding companies in Wigston observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

Under floor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before screeding is applied. The heating pipes and cables are firmly mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and make sure they're laid in the correct position. When properly installed an under floor heating system is an effective way to warm a room and top quality screeding retains its heat, producing an even heat across the floor surface.

If you aren't fitting under floor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. Your intended use of the room will help the screeding contractor on what kind of floor screed is appropriate for your needs. For quick drying screeds there will be at least a twenty four hour delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. If you're hoping to end up with a well finished and long-lasting floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to standard and heavy duty screeds where the time period will be longer.

You can test the SR standard of the finished screed as soon as it's hardened enough for walking on. The basic SR test uses a 2 metre straight edge to check for any variations in the screeded surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of three millimetres or less being measured across the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the best quality and categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the entire screeded surface.
  • SR3 - For utility floors where the quality of finish is fairly immaterial the SR3 is the standard and has a deviation measurement of 10mm or less.

If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is required to perform the tests. Using specialist equipment the structural engineer will evaluate the screed strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. The screed layer could be subjected to a "drop hammer test" to determine flexibility and strength at specific points. Only fully qualified structural engineers applying the British Standards BS8204 regulations are permitted to perform these testing and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.
