The training and skills that a certified screeding contractor brings to your project will guarantee a high quality outcome and help in prolonging the lifetime of your floors.

The rules and regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be followed by any Winchester floor screeding company and they must also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of any specialist screeding materials (Flowcrete, Cemfloor, Gypsol etc.) to prove their safe working practices and competence. This accreditation scheme highlights a contractor's training and high quality performance in the usage of a manufacturer's products.

Commercial screeders in Winchester will generally undertake larger screeding projects in shops, hospitals, restaurants, warehouses, factories and schools.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Used in residential flooring projects where the blend of cement and sand is ideal for everyday footfall use. This mixture uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. After laying a standard screed dries out at a rate of 1mm/day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If you have to move forward urgently with the flooring owing to time constraints, these screeds dry much faster than standard flooring screeds. Drying out at a rate of three to seven millimetres, subject to the mix, they are usually a fibre reinforced type of screed and are perfect for flooring projects that have tight deadlines.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is needed this mixture of cement and latex is used to produce SR1 quality screeding. The self-levelling compound provides a clean and level surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to allow all forms of flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be poured to a depth of only 1mm, but still provides a high strength surface to take a varied selection of flooring finishes.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The professional's choice for residential use on top of under floor heating. The greater strength and flexibility provided by the special fibres in this screed help protect the flooring from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. The screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm/day.

Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is necessary on account of construction factors, a polymer screed offers an extremely high strength solution to this situation. Polymer screeds are made by many manufacturers and because of their different chemical compositions have distinct drying times for each product.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum durability and strength on floors where traffic is expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor base is necessary.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding companies will have to fully prepare the area before any other work in order to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any paint, grease, oil and debris on the original floor surface can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and must be removed.

Any cleaning products used in this phase shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry out naturally. At this point cracks should be repaired as these can easily travel up through your newly laid screed and be visible in the finished surface. A reliable Winchester screeding installer will pick up on such issues during the on-site survey and make sure all preparations are complete before pressing on with the next steps in the floor screeding process.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed once the preparation work has been concluded to stop ground dampness affecting the flooring materials and screed. Different gauges of polythene sheeting may be used as a DPM and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation materials.

If your property is located in an area where radon is present a supplementary barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from getting through. A simple air-tight membrane might be enough in locations with low radon measurements, however in more severe cases there might need to be a more complex extraction system to take away any harmful radon gases.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeders will put on a sealant or primer to the prepared base. These sealers and primers will ensure that the screed bonds properly to the floor base and help create a high quality finished floor. Due to their special nature, only experienced screeding specialists in Winchester should be entrusted with using them correctly, safely and using bespoke equipment for the task.

Under floor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before the screed is applied. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and firmly attached to insulation panels to prevent any movement in the course of the screed application. When properly installed an underfloor heating system is an efficient way to warm up a room and high quality screeding retains its heat, generating an even heat right across the floor.

If you aren't installing underfloor heating the screed can now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. The particular requirements of the room will determine the form of screeding that is used. For quick drying screeds there'll be at least a 24 hour delay before it can be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before any flooring material can be laid over it. Such timescales will be longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's instructions must be followed to the letter to accomplish the optimal finish and longevity of the floor.

The SR level of your screed can be confirmed once it has set sufficiently to be walked upon. The test involves using a 2 metre straight edge laid down upon the floor surface and any variations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Disparities of three millimetres or less being measured across the whole floor area shows your screed to be of the best quality and classed as SR1.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the whole screed.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a quality finish is not required. This level allows for a maximium deviation depth of 10 millimetres.

There may also be a requirement for a qualified structural engineer to do a soundness test. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will evaluate the screeding strength and suitability of use in a load bearing setting. This should include what's known as a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the strength and flexibility of the screed. Any screeding that's got point load requirements must be okayed by a certified structural engineer heeding the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screeds Winchester

When the make-up of your floor's surface means that a degree of flexibility is needed, it may be best to apply a latex screed, rather than one with a rigid finish. Latex floor screeds come in two parts - a bottle and a bag - with the bottle containing latex liquid and the bag containing a cemetitious powder. The liquid latex part takes the place of the water which is used in other types of screed, meaning that it's more flexible and quicker drying.

This latex screed compound is used to level-out a sub-floor before the final decorative surface is laid. Suitable for substrate of wood, quarry tiles, sand/cement, asphalt and concrete, this screed gives the ideal surface for the application of adhesives which is also smooth and resilient. If there is any movement in the subfloor this type of screeding will produce a flexible, crack-free finish on which you can lay your chosen floor coverings.

When using a "floating" screed, i.e. when screed is being laid over underfloor heating, depths of 50mm-65mm may be desirable, and latex screeds aren't appropriate in this instance.
