TYPES OF SCREED

Standard Screeds - Frequently used in domestic flooring projects where the mix of cement and sand is perfectly acceptable for everyday footfall usage. This mixture comprises a 5:1 ratio of sand to cement. Once laid this 5:1 ratio will dry at a rate of one millimetre each day.

Polymer Screeds - A high strength solution where a reduced thickness is necessary. Maker's guidelines for setting times differ across the product ranges.

Self-Levelling or Liquid Screeds - Used to produce the highest quality of finish, especially where SR1 levels are required, by a latex and cement compound. It is mostly needed to provide a smooth, level floor over a poor quality or damaged substrate and enables all types of flooring materials to be used. The liquid screed can be poured to a thickness of only one millimetre, but still provides a high strength surface to take a varied selection of flooring materials.

Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - Developed for maximum strength and durability in places where traffic is high or heavy loading on the floor base is needed.

Fibre Reinforced Screed - Used mostly with underfloor heating systems and is the advised choice in these projects. The special fibres in this screed mix increase it's durability and strength whilst also protecting against thermal cracking and shrinkage. The screed will dry out at a rate of roughly 1mm/day.

Advanced Drying and Fast Drying Screeds - If there's a need to use the area at the earliest opportunity a fast drying screed may be used. Most of the fast or advanced drying screeds are fibre reinforced and are appropriate for a whole host of flooring projects where the quicker drying rate of 3-7mm is a considerable advantage.

SCREEDING PREPARATION AND INSTALLATION

Screeding installers will have to fully prepare the area before any other work in order to guarantee a hard wearing and quality screed flooring. Any oil, paint, grease and debris on the existing floor surface can adversely affect the bonding of the screed, and should be removed.

If any products were used in this process it's crucial to make sure that no residues of detergents or soaps are left on the floor surface and it is permitted to dry out naturally. If screeding over a stone or cement floor then all cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" through the screed layer and resulting in imperfections on the finished floor surface. A professional Yeovil screeding contractor will address these problems during the on-site survey and ensure that all preparations are finished before pressing on with the next stages of the screeding process.

A damp proof membrane (DPM) will be applied after the preparation work has been finished to prevent ground dampness getting into the flooring materials and screeding. There may be two or three layers of varying thickness polythene to act as barriers between the screed and the insulation layer.

An additional airtight barrier may be necessary if your house is in an area that is regarded as prone to radon gas emissions. This could be as simple as an airtight membrane, or in more serious instances a ventilation system will be installed beneath the screeding to take away any influx of air and gas from ground level.

As soon as these stages have been completed the screeding company will put on a sealer or primer to the prepared base. Primers and sealers help the bonding process and are special applications matched to the type of screed being used. Owing to their special nature, only certified screeders in Yeovil are capable of using them safely and correctly and through the use of equipment that's made for this task.

Now is the time that under floor heating can be installed and laid out in the correct way. Insulation panels can be laid out and the wires and heating pipes will be securely attached so that there is no movement whilst the screed is being poured. Warmth will be spread evenly across the floor in a professionally installed under floor heating system, and coupled with it being an efficient choice of heating, it's a good choice for most Yeovil home restoration projects.

If you are not putting in underfloor heating the screed can now be prepared on site and poured. Your screeding company will give you guidance and advice on which screed type is appropriate for your requirements, in line with your intended use of the room. Bear in mind 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 flooring can be fitted. If you're using standard or heavy duty screeds the setting time is increased and you must follow the manufacturer's guidelines so as to get the best possible finish to your floor.

You can test the SR level of the finished screeding once it is hard enough to walk on. The test involves the use of a 2 mtr long straight-edge laid down upon the surface and any variations from true are measured.

  • SR1 - Over the whole screed area, if there are no disparities of more than 3 millimetres from the straight-edge, then you have a top quality SR1 specification surface.
  • SR2 - If the screeded floor deviates from the straight edge by 5 millimetres or less it is considered SR2 level and is the standard for commercial and industrial projects.
  • SR3 - If the deviation around the room is ten millimetres or less the screeding quality is specified as SR3 and is the standard required for garage and utility areas.

If you need to check the screed floor for load bearing, a structural engineer is necessary to perform the tests. This assessment will determine the strength of the screed and its suitability for the proposed use. The screed layer should be given what's known as a "drop hammer test" to gauge strength and flexibility in specific areas. Only fully qualified structural engineers applying the British Standards BS8204 guidelines are permitted to conduct such tests and sign off on the structural safety of the screeding.

Latex Floor Screed Yeovil

When a level of flexibility is necessary in a floor's surface you may find that the application of a latex floor screed will be an advantage. Latex screeds generally comprise two parts - a cement-based compound, and a liquid latex additive. Where water is normally used in a screed mix, this is replaced with the latex liquid, meaning that it's quicker drying and more flexible than other standard screeds.

This latex compound is used for levelling-out subfloors prior to the installation of the final decorative surface. Producing a durable, smooth surface that's perfect for the application of adhesives, this screeding is is suitable for use on subfloors of asphalt, sand/cement, concrete, wood and quarry tiles. This latex screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish, even if there happens to be a bit of movement in your subfloor.

When using a "floating" screed, i.e. when screed is being laid on the top of underfloor heating, depths of 50-65mm may be required, and latex flooring screeds are not suitable in this case.
