Preparing your floor before application of screed over Underfloor Heating
Please follow the following steps:
- INSULATION Floor beneath insulation should be clear of debris that may affect proper placing of insulation, voids underneath or between sheets of insulation should be avoided. Place suitable insulation onto structural floor, mechanically fix insulation if required. Install edge insulation, along the perimeter of the walls and columns, this to avoid cold bridging and allow the floating floor to expand.
- PLASTIC MEMBRANE (P.U. MEMBRANE) Before placing of underfloor heating pipes a plastic membrane must be installed directly onto the insulation boards, and returned up the walls. This ensures no leakage of the screed and allows the screed to dry consistently throughout. Joints need to be taped and upturns fixed at 150mm above screed levels. (It can be trimmed back after screed is poured.)
- UNDER FLOOR HEATING PIPES Under floor heating pipes can now be placed over plastic sheeting and fixed at 500mm centres. Pipes are placed and fixed to the insulation boards using clips and/or rails. Fixings need to be no more than 500mm apart and extra fixings are required for bends/returns, to ensure pipes don’t float during screed application. Heating pipe system should be put on test while screed is being placed to ensure any pipe failure can be identified. (Discuss with your heating contractor.)
- FLOOR SCREED
Avoid leaving any debris that may float to the surface of the screed,
vacuum clean if necessary. Before screed placement commences, we set
adjustable tripod depth gauges set by laser level to agreed datum, which is
usually calculated from your door threshold, there is no requirement for
datum lines on walls. This ensures a level floor throughout the building.
Area for screed should be weather proofed, i.e. Roof sealed, Windows
fitted and in dry condition. Ideally internal plastering of walls should be
completed. Exact quantity of screed required can be determined when
tripods are set on site using datum given. (There may be an additional
charge for material used.)
- FINISHED FLOOR
Once installed, the screed is left to set, foot traffic can commence after 6-
24 hours (depending on screed type) under normal drying conditions. A
moisture test is advised prior to laying floor coverings.
