Floor Screeding Yateley Hampshire (GU46): If you are looking to install underfloor heating, have an uneven or damaged floor or are renovating a property or cellar in your Yateley home, it is time to think about hiring a professional floor screeding company. Before you are able to lay a final floor covering, whether it's wood, tile or carpet, the floor base needs to be as flat as possible; which is why floor screeding is sometimes needed. The screeding is a vital process to guarantee a high quality and durable finish to the whole floor structure.
FLOOR SCREEDING CONTRACTORS YATELEY
Whatever size room or area you are remodeling, a decent screeding company in Yateley can provide you with the experience and correct working methods to generate the perfect base for your floor. They will be able to assess the project and verify the correct kind of screed you require and the best technique for applying it.
It may be a requirement, contingent on the intended use of the space, for a survey by a structural engineer to conform with building regulations on flex strength, point loadings and load bearing of the screed floor.
A qualified and skilled work force is necessary for a successful result and will extend the lifespan of your floor by making use of the right type of screed for your room's allocated purpose. Choosing the right screeding materials and the method of installation is crucial if you want a quality and durable finish for your floor.
There are a number of screeding contractors in and around Yateley so make sure you get multiple price quotes for your project before choosing a contractor and know to what standard of finish it's for. For residential properties a quotation will usually be provided for an SR (Surface Regularity) level of SR1 or SR2. SR1 is the highest standard, and while SR2 and SR3 may be cheaper initially, they do not guarantee a perfectly flat or even floor surface. This means you may have to rectify any areas that might cause issues when laying your final flooring material.
British Standards BS8204 lays down the regulations and guidelines that all Yateley screeding companies is obliged to follow, and if applying specialist screeding solutions, (Gypsol, Cemfloor, Flowcrete etc), they should be accredited by the manufacturers as being skilled and trained in their use. A company holding accreditation proves that they've been assessed and trained in using these screeding products and can provide a top notch service in all aspects of their installation.
Yateley commercial screeders will be involved in screeding floors in warehouses, hospitals, restaurants, shops, factories and schools.
TYPES OF SCREED
Standard Screeds - A mixture of sand and cement which is perfect for basic domestic usage. The standard screed is a mix of 5 parts sand to one of cement. The standard flooring screed will dry at a rate of 1mm thickness each day.
Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Where traffic levels are expected to be high or heavy loading on the floor is needed, heavy duty screeds provide maximum durability and strength.
Liquid or Self-Levelling Screeds - When a high standard of finish is needed this mix of of cement and latex is used to produce SR1 level floor screeding. This is largely needed to produce a smooth, clean floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and results in a surface onto which all sorts of flooring materials can be laid. These can be as little as one millimetre in depth, and because of the latex polymers, will still provide high strength.
Polymer Screeds - An extremely high strength solution where a reduced screed thickness is required. Because of their different chemical compositions, these polymer screeds have varying drying times which you can verify by studying manufacturer's own product guidelines.
Fibre Reinforced Screed - Mostly used with underfloor heating systems and is the recommended choice in such projects. This is because of the improved durability and protection against thermal cracking and shrinkage provided by the fibres within the screed. It dries out at an identical rate to a standard screed of one millimetre per day.
Fast Drying and Advanced Drying Screeds - If you need to progress urgently with the flooring on account of time limitations, this screed dries more speedily than standard screeds. Drying at a rate of 3-7mm, determined by the mix, they're typically a fibre reinforced type of screed and are ideal for projects that have tight deadlines.
SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION
Preparation is vital for a quality finished screed surface that will be hard wearing and durable. The existing floor surface should be thoroughly cleaned to remove any oil, grease, debris and paint that might adversely affect the bond of the screeding.
Any cleansing products that are used during this phase should leave no residues, and the floor surface must be permitted to dry by itself naturally. It's essential to repair any crevices or cracks in the base to prevent them being visible and "travelling" upwards into the freshly screeded floor. An on-site survey will enable the screeding specialist to identify these preparation areas and complete them before commencing to apply the screed layer.
Before any screeding can be laid a damp proof membrane (DPM) will have to be installed to shield the screed and final flooring from moisture. There might be two or three layers of varying thicknesses of polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.
If the area where you live is at risk from radon gas then a further barrier is needed to prevent this harmful gas from entering from the ground. This could be just a simple air-tight membrane, or in more serious situations a ventilation system is installed underneath the screed to take away any inflow of radon gas from the ground.
Once the base has been prepared and all membranes installed, a sealant or primer is then applied. A primer assists in the screed bonding correctly to the base surface and different types exist based on which kind of screed is being used. These materials require qualified tradesmen to apply them in the correct proportions by using airless sprays and other tailor-made equipment.
Now is the time that underfloor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. Insulation panels can be laid out and the heating pipes and cabling will be securely fastened so that there is no movement while the screed is being applied. Under floor heating is one of the most effective ways to heat a room and a properly installed system should produce even warmth across the floor area.
The screeding can now be mixed and prepared on site and poured onto the base. Your use of the room will help the screeding company on what sort of floor screed is right for your requirements. Be aware that even quick drying screeds have a minimum of twenty four hours before you can walk on any screeded surface and a minimum seventy two hours before any floor coverings can be fitted. Manufacturer's drying instructions for standard and heavy duty screeds must be observed so as to achieve a quality finish and end up with a stable and even floor surface.
The SR level of your screeding can be checked once it has set sufficiently to be stepped onto. Using a two metre straight-edge the floor surface is checked for any ridges, deviations and dips in the screed surface.
- SR1 - Deviations of 3mm or less being measured across the entire area shows your screed floor to be of the finest quality and specified as SR1.
- SR2 - SR2 is for normal standard industrial and commercial floors and can deviate from the straight-edge by as much as 5 millimetres.
- SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish isn't necessary. This specification allows for a maximium deviation depth of 10mm.
If your screed has been laid with particular loading in mind then a structural engineer is going to be necessary to perform the tests. Using specialised equipment the structural engineer will ascertain the screeding strength and its suitability for use in a load bearing environment. The screed layer will be subjected to what's known as a drop hammer test to measure flexibility and strength in various areas. Only qualified structural engineers heeding the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to perform these testing and sign off on the structural safety of screed flooring.

Latex Screeds Yateley
It is advantageous to use a latex self-levelling floor screed when a bit of flexibility is necessary in the surface of a floor. A latex floor screed comes in 2 parts, a bag and a bottle, with the bag containing a cement powder, and the bottle containing a liquid latex component. The latex liquid additive takes the place of the water that's used in other types of screed, making it more flexible and quicker drying.
Before the laying of your chosen decorative covering, this latex compound is used for levelling-out subfloors. This is appropriate for substrate made from asphalt, sand/cement, stone tiles, concrete or wood, is perfect for the application of adhesives and gives a smooth and resilient surface. If your sub-floor has any movement in it, this type of screed will give you a flexible, crack-free finish, onto which your final floor coverings can be laid.
With "floating" screeds, for instance when a screed is being laid on the top of a membrane of acoustic or thermal insulation, latex screeds won't be a suitable choice. Floating screeds with a thickness of 50 to 65 millimetres are generally used over underfloor heating.
