A professional screeding company will also tell you if a structural engineer is necessary for your project, to evaluate any point loadings, load requirements and flex strength that your flooring might need to conform with building regulations and British Standards.

A qualified and skilled work force is essential to a successful outcome and will extend your floor's lifespan by making use of the correct kind of screed for your room's anticipated purpose. Selecting the correct screeding materials and the method of installation is crucial if you want to finish up with a quality and durable finish for your floor.

Make sure you get more than one quotation for your Wilmington screeding project and also ask what standard of finish each quote is for. For domestic homes an estimate will usually be given for a Surface Regularity (SR) level of SR1 or SR2. Each of the three SR levels deliver different levels of finish, with SR1 being the best, with the smallest amount of deviation over the area of the floor. An SR2 or SR3 level could mean there will be ridges or flat spots that might cause problems when installing your final flooring materials.

British Standards BS8204 lays down the guidelines and regulations that all Wilmington screeding companies must follow, and if working with specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete etc), they must be approved by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. The training and testing of a screeding contractor by a manufacturer is underlined by the use of this accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any flooring project involving their materials.

Wilmington commercial screeders might be involved in screeding floors in hospitals, shopping centres, boutiques, warehouses, schools and factories.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is okay for standard domestic usage and comprises a combination of cement and sand. The ratios involved are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. After laying a standard flooring screed sets at a rate of 1mm/day.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are expected to be high or heavy loading of the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds offer maximum durability and strength.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex mixture which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. Mostly used to improve a damaged floor or poor substrate level to enable the laying of a brand new flooring surface, such as tiles over it. They can be as little as one millimetre thick, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to use the floor as soon as possible a fast drying screed can be used. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are suitable for a wide array of flooring projects where the quicker curing rate of three to seven millimetres is a considerable advantage.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced thickness is needed. The curing times for these vary according to product guidelines.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The first choice where under floor heating is being installed in domestic homes in Wilmington. The greater strength and flex provided by the special fibres within the screed help protect the resulting floor from thermal cracking and shrinkage. At about one millimetre per day, it has a similar curing rate to standard floor screed.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time must be devoted to carefully preparing the area prior to any screeding material being laid. The existing floor surface should be thoroughly cleaned to eliminate any grease, oil, paint and debris that might adversely affect the adhesion of the screed.

Screeding Near Wilmington (DA2)

If cleaning products have been used it is vital to remove any remnants of soap etc, and leave the surface to dry naturally. At this stage any cracks should be repaired as these can easily travel up through a laid screed and be reflected in the finished floor surface. A reliable Wilmington screeding specialist will address these problems during a on-site survey and make sure all preparations are completed before pressing on with the next steps in the screeding process.

To protect the screed layer and flooring materials from moisture rising up through the ground, a DPM (damp proof membrane) will have to be laid. There might be two or three layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

Another airtight barrier may be necessary if your building is in a location which is regarded as prone to radon gas. This can be just a simple airtight membrane, or in severe situations an extraction and ventilation system will be installed underneath the floor screed to draw out any influx of air and gas from the ground.

As soon as the floor base has been prepared and any membranes installed, a sealant or primer is then put on. Primers assist with the bonding process and are special applications specifically designed for the sort of screed that's being applied. Equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, by certified screeding companies in Wilmington sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.

Underfloor heating can now be installed and tested before screeding is poured. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and mounted firmly on insulation panels to stop potential movement during screed pouring process. When expertly installed an under floor heating system is an excellent way to warm up a room and good quality screed will retain its heat, generating an even level of warmth across the floor surface.

Of course, if you're not putting in underfloor heating, you can just ignore this stage and apply the floor screed. Your screeding contractor will have given you guidance and advice on which form of screed is appropriate for your requirements, in line with your proposed use of the room area. Be aware that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you're able to walk on any laid surfaces and a minimum 3 days before any floor coverings can be fitted. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds should be observed in order to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and even surface.

As soon as the screeding has set it can be checked for quality to ascertain its SR standard. The test involves using a 2 metre long straight-edge laid on the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best standard and allows just 3mm of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the whole floor.
  • SR3 - If the deviation is 10mm or less the screed quality is classified as SR3 and is fine for garage and utility areas.

There may also be a requirement for a structural engineer to do a soundness test. The assessment will make sure that your new screeded surface is suitable for the load point requirements specified in the site survey. This can include a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only experienced structural engineers observing the BS8204 regulations are allowed to carry out these tests and sign off on the structural safety of the screeding.

Latex Screeds Wilmington

It is better to use a latex self-levelling screeding when a certain amount of flexibility is required in a floor's surface. Typically coming in two parts, latex screeds comprise a cement-based powder, and a liquid latex component. The liquid latex solution takes the place of the water that is used in standard screeds, making it quicker drying and more flexible.

This latex screed compound is used to level a sub-floor before the final decorative surface is installed. This screeding is suitable for use on sub-floors of concrete, stone tiles, asphalt, wood and sand/cement, to provide a resilient and smooth surface that is perfect for the application of adhesives. If there happens to be a bit of movement in the sub-floor this type of latex floor screed will provide a flexible, crack-free finish on which you can lay your final floor coverings.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when a screed is being laid over the top of a membrane of either acoustic or thermal insulation, screed thicknesses of 50mm-75mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds aren't appropriate for this purpose.

For your screeding work, varying quantities of waste will be created, depending on your particular circumstances, and the scale of your project. If the screeders you use don't take care of the waste removal, and it hasn't been listed on your quotation, this is something that you are going to have to deal with.

Regardless of whether the tradesperson is dealing with this or you are doing it yourself, hiring a skip will often be the best waste removal solution.
