False Ceiling Works

A popular and functional ceiling design option among homeowners is a false ceiling. Also known as a secondary or dropped ceiling, this is a structure that is suspended from the original ceiling. A false ceiling is created with the help of wooden or metal rafters to which the ceiling board is fitted. These modern installations are available in a variety of colours, materials, sizes and patterns.

What are the different types of false ceilings?

  • Gypsum: Gypsum boards are more environmentally friendly and easier to install. They have fire-resistant features.
    Plasterboard: While similar to gypsum in composition, a plasterboard is a more cost-efficient ceiling design option and perfect for home renovations.
  • POP: Plaster of Paris is a durable material, perfect for ceilings that feature intricate work or unique shapes and patterns. It is also another cost-effective option.
  • Wood: Ceilings with wooden elements add just the right amount of warmth to a room. However, wooden ceilings can be a challenge in humid areas as they expand and contract. This can cause the ceiling to warp or crack.
  • Metal: These ceilings are one of the strongest and are made with the most durable materials you can opt for. However, the material is susceptible to corrosion.
