Work with gypsum ceiling may not be one of the easier tasks for those who want to renovate the house, but the result of uniting the decoration with the construction is amazing!
If the residence project starts from scratch, it is best to perform this step while there is time, after all the plaster requires space and a lot of dirt.
Today you will learn about the different types of gypsum ceiling and how to insert in the decoration of various environments. Follow these tips:
Advantages of gypsum ceiling
1. Guaranteed lighting
This is the main reason people install gypsum in the environment. We know that lighting is the strong point in the decoration, and consequently, it will bring warmth to the environment. In this case, inlaying fixtures, playing with the models (now rails, now spots), making light traces, installing pendants anywhere are one of the requirements of the ceiling of the plaster.
2. Uniform apparent structure
All wall imperfections and apparent beams are hidden by gypsum ceiling .
3. Thread wires and cables
Moving the wires and plumbing to another area of the house is common in retirement, as with cable TV networks or air conditioning tubing. Any type of electric and hydraulic passage can be hidden with the gypsum ceiling , without the need to break wall or floor.
Be creative and design your gypsum ceiling along with the layout of the furniture. With it it is possible to create levels in the ceiling, leaving one part recessed and the other not, one part curved and the remainder with smooth appearance, insert frames, finishes and etc.
Types of Gypsum Ceiling
The lowering of gypsum is the technique most used today in the decoration of the house. Using the lowering or plaster lining is nothing more than lowering the ceiling with a false ceiling. Its finish is smooth and the tendency is to keep them in straight lines, providing a sleek, clean and uniform look.
2. Plaster cast
THE plaster molding is an alternative lining, but with installation in only a part of the ceiling, without the need of lowering. It works like a frame between the ceiling and the wall, being able to be curved or straight and of the size you want.
3. Removable plaster
They are plaster boards most commonly used in corporate environments, where wire and cable maintenance occurs very frequently. So they can be removed easily, without causing noises and dirt.
What is the difference between plaster and drywall?
It is common for people to confuse the traditional gypsum lining with drywall, which although originating from the same material, there are clear differences in application.
The common plaster lining is made with 60 × 60 plates attached to each other with wire. In these amendments plaster is passed with the aid of a trowel to make it smooth.
The drywall is a structure made of steel profiles wrapped around paper and screwed. For the finishes paper strips are used in the joints and then the mass of drywall is passed.
If it is a house without slab and with large spans the ideal is to use the drywall. Already in apartments or in a small environment, it is best to choose the traditional plaster.
