Benefiting from 20 years industry experience PC Flooring have a vast amount of experience in the delivery and installation of traditional screed systems. Traditional floor screeds typically consist of 3 to 5 parts sand and 1 part cement, drying times can vary considerably depending on a number of different variables, the most significant being screed type.
Installing a traditional screeded floor involves application with a wooden or plastic float and finished with a trowel or powerfloat. There are different standards of screeded floors defined as surface regularity (SR), we pride ourselves on meeting any specification standards.
Fully bonded traditional screeded floor systems are laid on a shot-blasted / scabbled concrete base and bonded using an adhesive. Resin systems such as Isocrete K-Screed allow screeds to fully bond at 15mm and also perform well as a high end DPM.
Unbonded screeds are a traditional screeding installation method which involves the use of a damp-proof membrane (DPM). Installing a DPM means the screed is not installed directly to the concrete floor, which should theoretically prevent the installation of the screed being effected by any cracks in the sub-base.
Floating screeds are used where there is a need for thermal or acoustic insulation to be installed on the floor. In many cases an underfloor heating system is also installed. The screed is laid on a insulated floor area, a high strength polystyrene insulation. To prevent against shrinkage cracking it is essential that the floor is lined with edging foam/isolation.
