Floor Screeding Yateley Hampshire (GU46): If you are planning to install underfloor heating, are restoring a property or basement or have a damaged or uneven floor in your Yateley home, it is a good time to consider hiring a professional floor screeder. Before it is possible to lay a suitable floor covering, whether it is carpet, wood or tile, the surface of the floor should be as flat as possible; which is why floor screeding is sometimes essential. If you want your floors to last a long time then a floor screed is one of the most important factors in any building or renovation task.
FLOOR SCREEDING COMPANIES YATELEY
A professional floor screeding company in Yateley will have know-how and experience to help you achieve a perfect floor in whatever size or shape of room you are renovating. They'll be able to assess the project and figure out the appropriate kind of screed you need and the best technique for applying it.
A professional screeding company will also inform you if a structural engineer is needed for your undertaking, in order to check on point loadings, flex strength and load requirements that your screed floor might need to conform with current British Standards and building regulations.
The skills and training that a screeding specialist brings to your project will guarantee a high quality outcome and help in extending the lifetime of your floors. The correct mixture of screed and the methods used for laying it are also important to ensure the ultimate intergrity of your floor.
Before selecting a floor screeding specialist from any based in the Yateley area, ask to what standard of finish they are basing their price quote, and also make certain you get multiple quotes from different screeders. The quotation could be based on what is called the SR, or Surface Regularity number. SR1 is the best standard, and whilst SR2 and SR3 may seem cheaper at first glance, they do not guarantee a totally even or flat surface. An SR2 or SR3 level may mean there are ridges or flat spots that could cause problems when laying your final flooring surface (wood, carpet, tile etc).
All Yateley screeding installers have to adhere to British Standards (BS8204) and should have accreditation from the manufacturers of screeding equipment and materials, for instance Cemfloor, Flowcrete, Gypsol. The training and assessment of a floor screeding contractor by such manufacturers is underlined through the accreditation scheme, and guarantees safe working practices and reliability on any flooring project which involves their materials.
Yateley commercial screeders might be involved in screeding floors in factories, hospitals, pubs, warehouses, shops and schools.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - Widely used in residential flooring projects where the blend of sand and cement is acceptable for regular floor traffic use. 5 parts sand to 1 part cement is the normal mixture for standard screed. After laying a standard flooring screed dries out at a rate of just 1mm/day.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - The first choice where under floor heating is being installed in domestic properties in Yateley. The increased flex and strength offered by the special fibres within this screed help protect the flooring from shrinkage and cracking due to heat. It has a setting rate of one millimetre per day.
Polymer Screeds - When a reduced thickness of floor is required on account of construction factors, a polymer screed provides an extremely high strength solution to this problem. Polymer screeds are available from many screed manufacturers and because of their diverse chemical compositions have specific curing times for each individual product.
Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If there is a need to use the area ASAP a fast drying screed can be utilised. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm/day, determined by the specialised mix, they're generally a fibre reinforced type of screed and are great for flooring projects which have tight deadlines.
Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - A cement and latex material which can produce the highest standard SR1 finish. The self-levelling compound provides a smooth and level surface over a rough substrate or damaged floor to allow all types of flooring materials to be laid. This liquid screed can be laid to a depth of only one millimetre, but still provides a high strength base for a varied selection of flooring materials.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are high or heavy loading of the floor is necessary, heavy duty screeds offer maximum strength and durability.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Screeding installers will have to carefully prepare the area before any other work so as to ensure a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. The original floor surfaces should be cleaned to eradicate any paint, debris, grease and oil which can adversely affect the bond of the screeding.
If cleaning products were used it is crucial to remove any remnants of soap or detergent, and leave the surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor all cracks should be repaired to prevent them from "travelling" up through your screed layer and producing imperfections on the final surface. An on-site survey will enable your Yateley screeding company to identify these preparation areas and complete them before commencing to pour the screeding layer.
A DPM (damp proof membrane) will be installed after the preparation work has been completed to stop ground dampness affecting the screeding and floor materials. There might be 2 or 3 layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as a barrier between the insulation layer and screed.
If the area is at risk from radon then a further barrier is necessary to prevent this harmful gas from entering from the ground. An air-tight membrane could be enough in locations with relatively low levels of radon, however in more severe situations there might have to be a more complex ventilation and extraction system to take away any harmful radon gases.
Once the base has been prepared and any DPMs installed, a primer or sealant is then applied. Primers and sealers assist with the bonding process and are specialist applications according to the kind of screed being applied. Owing to their special nature, only certified screeders in Yateley are capable of using them safely and correctly and using equipment which is made for this task.
Now is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct manner. The underfloor heating system will be carefully positioned and attached firmly to insulation panels to prevent any movement during screed application. When expertly installed an underfloor heating system is an effective way to warm a room and high quality screed will retain its heat, creating an even level of warmth right across the floor.
Needless to say, if you're not putting in under floor heating, you can ignore this step and get on with applying the screeding. Your use of the room will assist the screeding specialist on which form of screed is right for your needs. For advanced and quick drying screeds there'll be at least a twenty four hour delay before it can be walked over, and a further seventy two hours minimum before you are able to lay any flooring materials. If you're looking to end up with a nicely finished and long-lasting floor surface you should stick to the manufacturer's guidelines with regards to heavy duty and standard screeds where the timescale will be longer.
You can check the SR standard of the completed screeding once it's hardened enough to walk on. The test involves using a 2 metre long straight-edge laid down upon the floor surface and any fluctuations from true are measured.
- SR1 - Deviations of three millimetres or less being measured over the entire floor area shows your screeding to be of the best quality and classified as SR1.
- SR2 - The normal standard flooring in industrial and commercial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum possible deviation of five millimetres across the whole screeded surface.
- SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect quality finish isn't required. This level allows for a maximium deviation depth of 10mm.
If you need to check the floor for load bearing, a qualified structural engineer is required to carry out the testing. This assessment will determine the strength of the screeding and the suitability for its intended use. This should include what is known as a "drop hammer test" which records specific data on the strength and flexibility of the screed. Only experienced structural engineers respecting the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to perform such testing and sign off on the structural integrity of the screeding.
