Floor Screeding Winterbourne Gloucestershire (BS36)

It might be necessary, contingent on the intended use of the area, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform with building regulations on load bearing, flex strength and point loadings of the screed floor.

Skilled and qualified workers are imperative for a successful result and will extend the life of your floor through the use of the right type of screed for the intended purpose of your room. There are numerous kinds of screed and choosing the appropriate mix and installation process is critical if you are to create a quality floor that is both fit for purpose and long-lasting.

There are several screeding companies in and around Winterbourne so if possible get multiple estimates for your screeding project before selecting a company and know to what standard of finish it's for. For residential properties an estimate will generally be given for an SR (Surface Regularity) standard of SR1 or SR2. Each of the 3 SR levels provide different qualities of finish, with SR1 being the highest, with the least amount of deviation over the area. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there will be ridges or flat spots that may cause problems when installing your final flooring materials.

British Standards BS8204 sets down the guidelines and regulations that all Winterbourne screeding contractors are required to follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc), they must be accredited by the manufacturers as being trained and skilled in their use. The training and assessment of a floor screeding company by such manufacturers is underlined by the use of this accreditation scheme, and offers assurances of safe working practices and reliability on any project which involves their materials.

Winterbourne commercial screeders could be involved in floor screeding in warehouses, hospitals, factories, schools, shopping centres and boutiques.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is acceptable for basic residential use and is a combination of cement and sand. The ratios involved in standard screeds are 5 parts sand to 1 part cement. Once laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre each day.

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

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for residential use over the top of under floor heating. The special fibres in the screed enhance it's durability and strength while also safeguarding against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It dries out at an identical rate to a standard screed of 1mm per day.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - Used to provide a high quality finish, especially in SR1 levels of screeding, by a cement and latex formula. It's primarily needed to produce a smooth, clean floor over a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a surface finish onto which all types of flooring materials can be laid. Even with a depth of just one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is necessary. On account of their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying setting times which you can verify by studying manufacturer's own product guidelines.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to move forward urgently with the flooring on account of time constraints, these screeds dry much quicker than standard flooring screeds. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, subject to the mixture, they are generally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are suitable for projects which have tight deadlines.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Preparation is essential for a top quality screed surface that will be durable and hard wearing. The original floor surface should be cleaned to remove any grease, paint, debris and oil which might adversely affect the bond of the screeding.

Screeding Near Winterbourne (BS36)

Any cleansing products used during this stage shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. At this point any cracks need to be repaired because these can travel up through a newly laid screed and be reflected in the finished surface. A site survey will enable your Winterbourne screeding company to identify this preparation work and finish it before commencing to pour the screeding.

A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be installed once the preparation work has been completed to prevent ground dampness affecting the screed and floor materials. The damp proof membrane is made out of thick polythene sheet and various layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

If the area is at risk from radon then a further barrier is essential to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. An airtight membrane could be enough in areas with low radon measurements, but in more serious situations there might have to be a more sophisticated extraction and ventilation system to block any harmful radon gases.

Once these steps have been taken the screeders will put on a primer or sealer to the prepared base. These sealers and primers will guarantee the screed bonds successfully to the floor base and help create a quality finished floor. These materials require certified contractors to apply them in the correct proportions by using bespoke equipment, such as airless sprays.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and checked before the screed is applied. The under floor heating system will be carefully positioned and firmly attached to insulation panels to prevent potential movement in the course of the screed pouring. When skillfully installed an under floor heating system is an efficient way to warm a room and decent quality screeding retains its heat, generating an even heat across the floor surface.

If you're not fitting under floor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared in situ and laid. Your screeding company will have given you guidance and advice on which screed type is best for your needs, in line with your intended use of the room area. After application of the screed there is a minimum twenty four hours (for quick drying screeds) before you're able to walk upon the surface, and a seventy two hours minimum setting period for any floor covering installation. If you are using heavy duty or standard screeds the curing time is increased and you must observe the manufacturer's guidelines so as to get the best possible finish for your floor.

You can test the SR level of the finished screeding once it's solidified enough for walking on. The test involves using a 2 metre straight edge laid down upon the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are calculated.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best quality and allows only 3 millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor has a deviation from the straight-edge of 5 millimetres or less it is SR2 quality and is the normal standard for industrial and commercial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is 10 millimetres or less the screeding quality is specified as SR3 and is highly suitable for garage and utility areas.

If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to perform the testing. The assessment will make certain that your new screeded surface is viable for the load point requirements set down in the original site survey. This should include what's known as a "drop hammer test" which assesses various aspects of the flexibility and strength of the screed. The specialist testing and measurement tools mean that this can only be conducted by a certified structural engineer respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.
