Floor Screeding Wolverhampton West Midlands (WV1): A floor screeding professional can assist with renovations, level a damaged or uneven floor or help install underfloor heating on your Wolverhampton home or business premises, when needed. Floor screeding delivers a smooth, level finish to a coarse sub-base, and enables you to lay your final layer of flooring material, (tiles, boards, carpets etc) on top of it. The screed is a vital process to guarantee a high quality and durable finish to the whole floor structure.

They will be able to assess the project and ascertain the correct sort of screed you require and how best to apply it.

Working with a skilled and qualified contractor will ensure you use the proper kind of screed for the room's intended purpose to extend the lifespan of your flooring. The correct mixture of screed and the way it is laid is also vital to guarantee the final durability of your floor surface.
There are many screeding contractors in the Wolverhampton area so if possible get multiple quotations for your floor screeding project before choosing a contractor and know to what standard of finish it's for. For domestic homes a quote will generally be provided for a Surface Regularity (SR) standard of SR1 or SR2. SR2 and SR3 might be less costly options, but the finished floor surface might have deviations and errors, whilst SR1 guarantees a perfect finish. An SR2 or SR3 level might mean there are ridges or flat spots that could cause problems when installing your final flooring materials.
Every Wolverhampton screeding company has to stick to British Standards (BS8204) and ought to have some form of accreditation from screeding material and equipment manufacturers, e.g. Flowcrete, Gypsol, Cemfloor. This accreditation scheme demonstrates a company's ability and training in the usage of a manufacturer's product.
Commercial screeders in Wolverhampton will usually undertake larger floor screeding projects in shops, schools, hospitals, warehouses, factories and restaurants.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - This is okay for everyday residential use and comprises a combination of cement and sand. The standard screed is a mix of five parts sand to one of cement. Once laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of 1mm per day.
Polymer Screeds - When a decreased thickness of floor is needed on account of building requirements, a polymer screed provides a high strength resolution to the situation. The drying times for these vary in accordance with proprietary product guidelines.
Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to provide the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are needed, by a cement and latex compound. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all flooring materials to be laid. The liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of just 1mm, but still provides a high strength surface for a wide range of flooring materials.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favourite choice of professional installers for use in combination with underfloor heating systems. This is due to the increased strength and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the special fibres within the screed mix. The screed will set hard at a rate of 1mm/day.
Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry rapidly and allow you to use the floor area much sooner. Most of the fast drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are suitable for a whole host of flooring projects where the quicker drying rate of three to seven millimetres is a big advantage.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that's designed for heavy traffic and high load areas where the maximum possible durability and strength is necessary.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
To ensure the screeding is of a good quality finish that is hard wearing and durable, time should be spent on carefully preparing the area before any screeding material is laid. The original floor surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any debris, grease, paint and oil which might adversely affect the adhesion of the screed.
Any cleansing products used during this process shouldn't leave any residues, and the floor surface must be allowed to dry by itself naturally. It's necessary to fix any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to avoid them being reflected and "travelling" up into your newly screeded floor. During an on-site survey your Wolverhampton screeding contractor will be able to see what preparations are required before starting to work on screeding the floor.
Before any screeding can be poured a DPM (damp proof membrane) must be put down to protect the final flooring and screed from dampness. There may be 2 or 3 layers of different thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.
If your house is located in a place where radon is found a supplementary barrier layer is required to stop radon gas from entering. If radon gas is present in large amounts then a complete ventilation system might be needed under the screed which will extract any gases that might seep in from the ground.
Once these stages have been completed the screeders will apply a sealer or primer to the prepared base. A primer assists in the screed bonding correctly to the base and different types exist based upon which kind of screed is being used. Custom-made equipment such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a sealant or primer, which should be done by certified screeding installers in Wolverhampton following the manufacturer's guidelines and safety advice.
If you are going to be installing under floor heating, this is the time that it will need to be set out and installed. The underfloor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and attached firmly to insulation panels to avoid potential movement in the course of the screed installation process. When skillfully installed an underfloor heating system is an excellent way to warm a room and good quality screed retains its heat, creating an even level of warmth across the floor.
If you aren't fitting underfloor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared on site and laid. Your proposed use of the room will assist your screeding company on which kind of floor screed is best for your requirements. Be aware that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk on any screeded surfaces and a minimum 72 hours before any flooring materials can be laid. Manufacturer's drying instructions for heavy duty and standard screeds should be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide an even and stable floor surface.
You can test the SR standard of the finished screeding once it's set enough for walking on. The standard SR test uses a 2 metre long straight-edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.
- SR1 - SR1 is the best standard and allows only 3 millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
- SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of five millimetres across the whole floor.
- SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect quality finish isn't needed. This level allows for a maximium deviation of 10mm.
If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is required to conduct the testing. This assessment will establish the strength of the screed surface and the viability for its proposed use. An assessment called the drop hammer test will be carried out on different areas of the screed layer and the outcomes recorded. Only experienced structural engineers heeding the BS8204 regulations are permitted to carry out these tests and sign off on the structural safety of a screed floor.
