Installation

A professional and entirely reliable installation of floor screeding requires the experience and expertise that only an industry expert can provide.

Why not leave the installation of your new screed floor in the hands of the time served specialists here at Ecoscreed?

The process

The installation of high quality floor screeding is a complex and comprehensive process, involving various stages of preparation before the pouring of the screed itself. The four main stages are as follows:

1.Mixing

Putzmeister Maching Mixing the Screed

Using a Putzmeister SP11 DQR, which we are able to supply to the job complete with an operator, we mix 3 bags of binder with 6 bags of recycled glass and 30 litres of water.

If required, we will supply a team of 2 to load the mixer; alternatively, you can provide the labour for this if you prefer.

2. Floor preparation

Floor Preparation

To ensure that no flowing screed is allowed to track down underneath the insulation, we will tape the insulation at the joins and install a 10mm expansion strip around the perimeter edge. Joints will be installed where there are any changes in UFH zones and all pipework will be clipped down with sufficient clips to prevent the pipes from rising when the screed is poured over them.

3. Levelling

Floor Levelling

The innovative Putzmeister SP11 DQR machine will then mix and pump the floor screed material through a 50mm pressure hose to the floor and the point of application. Small levelling indicators will be spread around the room on approximately a 1.5 metre grid pattern and then laser levelled to the correct floor level.  Our experienced operatives will make sure there is at least 25mm cover to the uppermost surface of the underfloor heating pipework.

4. Finished Screed

Once the levelling tripods have been removed, the floor screed is dappled in two perpendicular directions.

This will involve a deep dappling motion on the first direction, followed by a light, more rapid, dappling in the second direction.

The final floor is left smooth and flat and can be walked on after 24 hours.
