Polymer Screeds - A high strength flooring solution where a reduced screed thickness is essential. Owing to their different chemical compositions, these screeds have varying curing times which you can verify by checking manufacturer's own product guidelines.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where levels of traffic are high or heavy loading of the floor is required, heavy duty screeds provide maximum durability and strength.

Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex material which can produce the highest standard of finish to SR1 levels. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to enable all sorts of flooring materials to be laid. Even with a thickness of only one millimetre, the latex polymers within the screed provide a high strength surface for a wide variety of uses.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - As the name suggest, these screeds dry quickly and allow you to use the screeded area much sooner. The vast majority of the fast or advanced drying screeds are of the fibre reinforced kind and are appropriate for a wide range of projects where the quicker curing rate of 3-7mm/day is a big advantage.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - The favourite choice of professional contractors for use with under floor heating systems. The improved flex and strength provided by the fibres in this screed mix help protect the floor from thermal shrinkage and cracking. At roughly one millimetre per day, it has the same curing rate to standard floor screed.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

To make sure that the screeding is of a good quality finish that's hard wearing and durable, time should be spent on preparing the area prior to any screed being poured. Any grease, debris, paint and oil on the original floor surface can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be removed.

Screeding Near Wotton-under-Edge (GL12)

If any cleaning products are used in this process it is vital to ensure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the surface and it is allowed to dry out naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be mended to stop them from "travelling" up through the screed layer and resulting in deviations on the finished surface. A trustworthy Wotton-under-Edge screeding company will address these aspects during the on-site survey and ensure all preparations are complete before moving on to the next steps in the floor screeding process.

Before the screeding can be poured a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be installed to shield the final flooring and screed from moisture. There may be 2 or 3 layers of different thickness polythene to act as a barrier between the screed and the insulation layer.

Another airtight barrier could be necessary if your house is in a location which is known to be susceptible to radon gas. This can be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in severe instances a ventilation and extraction system will be installed beneath the screed to extract any influx of radon gas from ground level.

As soon as these steps have been taken the screeding company will apply a primer or sealer to the prepared base surface. Sealers and primers help with the bonding process and are specialist applications specifically designed for the kind of screed that's being applied. Devices such as airless sprays will usually be used to apply a primer or sealant, which should be done by qualified screeding contractors in Wotton-under-Edge observing the manufacturer's guidelines.

If you are installing under floor heating, now is the time that it will need to be properly set out and installed. The cables and heating pipes are firmly attached to insulation panels to stop any movement and ensure that they are held in the correct position. When expertly installed an under floor heating system is an effective way to warm up a room and decent quality screed retains its heat, producing an even level of warmth across the floor surface.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured onto the base surface. Your screeding contractor will have given you advice and guidance on which screed type is best for your requirements, according to your intended use of the room area. After the pouring of the screed there will be a minimum 24 hours (for advanced and quick drying screeds) before you can walk on the surface, and a seventy two hours minimum drying period before any floor material installations. Manufacturer's drying guidelines for standard and heavy duty screeds should be followed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even surface.

You can test the SR standard of the finished screed as soon as it is set enough to walk on. The test involves using a 2 mtr straight edge laid down upon the surface and any deviations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the entire area, if there are no deviations of more than 3mm from the straight-edge, then you've got a top quality SR1 level surface.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is normally SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5 millimetres across the whole floor.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect quality finish is not needed. This specification allows for a maximium deviation of 10 millimetres.

If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to carry out the testing. The assessment will make certain that your newly laid screeding is suitable for the load bearing requirements specified in the original site survey. An assessment called the drop hammer test is performed at various areas on the screed layer and the outcomes documented. Any screed floor that has point load requirements must be approved by a qualified structural engineer following the British Standards BS8204 guidelines.

Latex Screed Wotton-under-Edge

When the nature of your floor's surface means that a certain amount of flexibility is required, it may be best to use a latex self-levelling floor screed, as opposed to one with a more rigid finish. Usually coming in two parts, latex floor screeds comprise a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex component. The liquid latex additive replaces the water that would normally be used in a screed mix, and is quicker drying and more flexible than standard screeds.

Prior to the laying of the final decorative surface, this latex product is used for levelling-out subfloors. This screed is suitable for use on subfloors of asphalt, sand/cement, wood, quarry tiles and concrete, to give a smooth, durable surface that's perfect for the application of adhesives. This latex floor screed will produce a flexible, crack-free finish, even if there happens to be movement in your sub-floor.

When a screed is being laid on the top of a layer of either thermal or acoustic insulation (i.e. a floating screed), latex flooring screeds are not a suitable choice, because in cases like this (normally when screeding on top of underfloor heating), you'll likely require a thickness of 50mm-65mm.
