Understanding Floor Screed
Floor screed constitutes of a simple mixture of water, ordinary cement and graded aggregate such as sharp sand. This mixture is used to craft a smooth, hardwearing sub-floor.
Its general thickness is about 75mm before it is ready to be laid on the floor and requires professional supervision to ensure no costly rectifications are necessary.
Depending upon the kind of premises, the screed can be covered with underlay and decorative flooring solution, for instance laminate tiles or carpet; or it can be left bare. Liquid Screed in Bristol can also be used to accommodate underfloor heating systems and to install pipe-work that will surround the premises.
Liquid screed with Underfloor Heating
Although liquid screed is a straightforward blend of materials, it is actually an essential process to ensure evenness of the floor, its durability and entailing sturdiness.
A professional laid liquid screed in Bristol can substantially lengthen the lifespan of a floor, adding to the overall quality of the completed flooring. This can go a long way in ensuring a flat and levelled exterior shielding the sub layers from being subjected to wear and tear and premature erosion.
However, floor screed if not laid appropriately, can diminish the overall quality of the floor and can result in causing damage to the floor cover such as laminate, vinyl carpet etc. This can prove to be a costly affair if you were to bear the expenses of repairing the very core of the flooring of your premises.
Which Type of Screed is Best Suited to Your Project?
As per the suitability of the floor of a given premises, you have the liberty to experiment with different screed applications.
It is best to acquire a professional opinion before arriving upon a decision on the appropriation of the varying screeds to cater to your flooring needs.
Listed below are the most common types to ensure that you make an informed decision for Liquid Screed in Bristol:
- Traditional Screed – A standard mix of cement and sand is the idyllic final floor finish for various floor coverings which may comprise of tiles and laminates. This makes it suitable for different environments from homes and schools to hospitals and shops.
- Self-Levelling Compounds – Self levelling or flowing screed compound differs from the standard screed mixtures. These are generally used to even out or to level the final finishing layer that provides a smooth exterior for laying the floor finishes. Self-levelling compounds or liquid screed can be a costlier investment than the standard mixes but the perfect solution, in the case that your premise is to be transformed into a warehouse or an industrial area which then calls to attain the levelling of the surface for a multitude of safety reasons.
- Accelerated or Fast Drying Screeds – Generally, a variety of screeds can take weeks or even months to dry completely and to get ready for the application of concluding floor covering. Thus, to tackle the projects with tight deadlines, accelerated screed is an ideal choice. Fast drying screeds can be ready for the final floor finish after just three days.
Liquid Screed in Bristol and Underfloor Heating Solutions
Screed is crucial to strengthen the base of any premises. While this favours the core of any construction, it also provides a precise base for installing an underfloor heating solution.
At Liquid Screed Ltd, we pride ourselves on incorporating the latest modern multilayer pipes and control systems that can evenly distribute heat over the entire expanse of the premise it is installed in.
Our installers are CPCS approved in addition to the many years of experience in the underfloor heating niche. We undertake projects right from the very start, adopting the initial design, working to your specifications and working through to an exquisitely levelled floor finish that is guaranteed to last for decades to come.
Before we specify or install an underfloor heating system, it is with imperative understanding that we analyse the type of screed which is best to use in a given situation and identify the different methods of floor construction for your structure during the initial design stage. We consider different thickness requirements linked with specific screed types, and the size of the premises.
The screed must be shielded from the rain, wind and sun as this can have a detrimental effect on the screed flooring. This also contributes towards ensuring a more consistent environment for initial curing. Once the screed has been laid and depending on whether a self levelling or traditional mix is used, it is important that it is left to cure before it can dry completely.
Laying screed must be done at the earliest possible opportunity during the construction process. This is mainly because the curing (providing adequate moisture, temperature, and time to allow the concrete to achieve the desired properties for its intended use) and drying of the screed is crucial to its long-term performance.
