Standard Screeds - This is acceptable for standard domestic usage and is a mix of sand and cement. This mix uses a five to one ratio of sand to cement. Once it has been laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre each day.

Polymer Screeds - These provide a high level of strength with a minimal thickness. The curing times for these vary according to proprietary product guidelines.

Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you have to move forward urgently with the flooring on account of time constraints, this screed dries much quicker than standard flooring screeds. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, determined by the mix, they're usually a fibre reinforced type of screed and are suitable for flooring projects that have tight deadlines.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - When the highest possible standard of finish is needed this formula of cement and latex is used to create SR1 quality screeding. It is mostly needed to provide a high quality floor over the top of a damaged or poor quality substrate and results in a surface finish onto which all sorts of flooring materials can be laid. The liquid screed can be laid to a depth of just 1mm, but still provides a strong surface for a wide range of flooring materials.

Good preparation is crucial for a quality finished screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. Any paint, grease, oil and debris on the existing floor level can affect the adhesion of the screed, and must be eliminated.

If cleaning products have been used it is important to remove any traces of detergent or soap, and leave the surface to dry naturally. It's necessary to repair any crevices or cracks in the floor surface to avoid them being visible and "travelling" up into your newly screeded floor. A site survey will allow your Yarm screeding company to pinpoint these preparation areas and complete them before starting to apply the screed layer.

To protect the flooring materials and screeding layer from dampness rising up from the ground, a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed. Different gauges of specialised polythene could be used as a DPM and also serve as a buffer for the screed and any insulation panels.

If your house is situated in a place where radon gas is present an additional barrier layer is essential to prevent radon gas from seeping through. This could be just a simple airtight membrane, or in more serious instances a ventilation and extraction system is installed beneath the screeding to take away any influx of radon gas from the ground.

Once the base has been prepared and all membranes installed, a primer or sealant is then applied. Sealers and primers help with the bonding process and are specialist applications matched to the type of screed being applied. These materials require trained tradesmen to apply them in the right proportions by using airless sprays and other custom-made equipment.

If required, this is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. The cables and heating pipes are firmly mounted on insulation panels to prevent any movement and ensure they are held in the correct position. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a professionally installed system will produce even warmth in all areas of the floor.

The screeding can now be mixed and prepared on site and spread onto the floor surface. Your screeding specialist will give you advice on which form of screed is suitable for your needs, according to your intended use of the room area. After application of the screed there is a minimum 24 hours (for quick drying and advanced screeds) before you're able to walk on the surface, and a 72 hour minimum setting time for the laying of any flooring materials. Such periods will be longer for heavy duty and standard screeds and the manufacture's product guidelines must be followed to the letter to accomplish the optimum finish and durability of the floor.

You can test the SR standard of the finished screeding as soon as it's solidified enough to walk on. The standard SR test uses a 2m straight edge to check for any deviations in the floor surface.

  • SR1 - Disparities of 3 millimetres or less being measured over the whole floor area shows your screeding to be of the best quality and categorised as SR1.
  • SR2 - SR2 is the classification for standard commercial and industrial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as five millimetres.
  • SR3 - SR3 is utility standard where a perfect finish is not required. This specification allows for a maximium deviation of 10mm.

If you require load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to perform the testing. The assessment will make certain that your new screed surface is viable for the load point requirements specified in the site survey. The screed layer could be subjected to what's known as a "drop hammer test" to gauge flexibility and strength in different areas. Only qualified structural engineers respecting the British Standards BS8204 regulations are allowed to carry out these tests and sign off on the structural integrity of the screeding.

Latex Screeds Yarm

When a level of flexibility is required in the surface of a floor you might find that the employment of a latex self-levelling screed will be an advantage. A latex floor screed comes in two parts, a bottle and a bag, with the bag containing a cemetitious powder, and a bottle that contains a liquid latex additive. Where water is normally used in a screed mix, this is replaced with the liquid latex, meaning that it is more flexible than other types of screed, and quicker drying.

Prior to the installation of your chosen decorative covering, this latex product is used for levelling-out sub-floors. This is suitable for use on sub-floors of concrete, sand/cement, asphalt, stone tiles and wood, to give a resilient and smooth surface that's perfect for the application of flooring adhesives. If there is any movement in the subfloor this type of screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish on which to lay your chosen floor coverings.

When using a "floating" screed, i.e. when a screed is being laid over the top of a layer of either acoustic or thermal insulation, screed thicknesses of 50-65mm may be needed, and latex flooring screeds aren't suitable for this purpose.
