The rules and regulations specified in the British Standards BS8204 have to be observed by any Woodbridge floor screeding contractor and they should also hold accreditation with the manufacturers of specialist screeding materials (Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol etc.) to verify their competence and safe working practices. The assessment and training of a screeding contractor by such manufacturers is highlighted by the use of the accreditation scheme, and guarantees safe working practices and reliability on any flooring project which involves their materials.

For larger screeding projects in restaurants, shops, hospitals, warehouses, factories and schools, specialist commercial screeders in Woodbridge will be needed.

TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - This is okay for regular domestic use and comprises a mixture of sand and cement. Five parts sand to one part cement is the normal mixture for standard screed. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio dries at a rate of one millimetre per day.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The expert's choice for domestic use over the top of underfloor heating. The fibres in the screed mix increase overall durability and strength while also protecting against thermal shrinkage and cracking. It has a setting rate of 1mm per day.

Polymer Screeds - When a lower thickness of floor is required because of building factors, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength solution to this problem. The curing times for these vary as outlined by product guidelines.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - As the name would suggest, these screeds dry at a quicker rate and allow you to use the floor area much faster. Drying out at a rate of 3-7mm/day, subject to the mix, they are usually a fibre reinforced type of screed and are great for projects that have tight deadlines.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed that's designed for heavy traffic and high load areas where maximum strength and durability is essential.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is necessary this formula of latex and cement is employed to produce SR1 level floor screeding. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and clean surface over a damaged floor or rough substrate to enable all flooring materials to be laid. Even with a thickness of just 1mm, the latex polymers within the mixture provide a high strength surface for a wide range of uses.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To make certain the screeding is of a high quality finish that's durable and hard wearing, time should be devoted to preparing the area before any screed is laid. It's vital that all contaminants such as grease, paint, oil or debris is eradicated from the floor surface before laying any screed, because these can affect the bonding process that a quality floor screed demands.

Any cleaning products used in this process should leave no residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry out naturally. It's necessary to repair any cracks or crevices in the floor surface to stop them being reflected and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. During an on-site survey the screeding installer will ascertain what preparations are necessary before any actual screeding commences.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be installed after the preparation work has been done to prevent ground dampness getting into the screeding and floor materials. There could be 2 or 3 layers of different thickness polythene to act as barriers between the insulation layer and screed.

If your property is situated in an area where radon gas is present a supplementary barrier layer is essential to stop radon gas from getting through. This can be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in more serious cases a ventilation system will be installed under the screed to take away any inflow of air and gas from the ground.

The final step of surface preparation is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealant. A primer assists in the screed bonding process to the base and different varieties exist according to which screed type is being used. These materials require skilled technicians to apply them in the right proportions by using airless sprays and other bespoke equipment.

Underfloor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before the screed is poured. The heating pipes and wires are securely mounted on insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure that they're held in the correct position. Warmth is spread evenly across a floor area in an expertly installed underfloor heating system, and with it being an effective choice of heating, it's an excellent choice for most Woodbridge renovation projects.

The screeding can now be prepared in situ and applied to the base surface. Your screeding company will have given you guidance and advice on which screed type is appropriate for your requirements, in line with your proposed use of the room. For quick drying screeds there will be at least 24 hours delay before it is able to be walked on, and a further Three days minimum before any flooring material can be applied. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds must be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and provide a stable and long lasting floor surface.

The SR level of your screeding can be confirmed once it has set sufficiently to be walked on. Through the use of a two metre straight-edge the floor surface is examined for any dips, ridges and deviations in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the best specification and allows just 3 millimetres of disparity from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard floors in industrial and commercial projects and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5mm.
  • SR3 - For a utility area or room where the finish is fairly immaterial SR3 is the standard and should have a maximum deviation measurement of ten millimetres or less.

If your screeding has been installed with particular load bearing requirements in mind then a structural engineer is going to be required to conduct tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will verify the screeded surface strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing setting. A "drop hammer test" is carried out at various areas on the screed layer and the outcomes noted. The specialist testing and measurement tools required mean this can only be performed by a certified structural engineer obeying the guidelines of BS8204.
