The plaster ceilings are beautiful, high in the decor and give an elegant look to the house. Not to mention that they hide imperfections, they disguise beams and allow to enclose a special illumination. The material still allows the passage of pipes of air, water, electricity and air conditioning.
These are some of the advantages of plaster lining. However, before deciding to install this type of lining in your home, it is important to know more thoroughly the material, the types of plaster available in the market and the advantages and disadvantages.
Follow the people in this post that we will clarify all your doubts and also present you lovely designs of plaster linings.
Types of Gypsum Lining
There are two types of gypsum ceilings used in residential projects: the plating and the drywall. And make no mistake about thinking that plaster is all the same. Quite the contrary, the two types are quite different from each other and have a big price difference as well.
Check out each one below and see which one fits best in your project:
Plating is best known, yet it takes more time for installation and makes more dirt than drywall to be placed. However, one of its advantages is that it is usually up to 50% cheaper than drywall.
This type of lining is formed by gypsum plates embedded in each other. For perfect alignment, it is important to hire skilled labor.
The plating gives a more beautiful and smooth finish than drywall, but it is not suitable for homes that suffer from constant changes in temperature or oscillations in the structure, as they tend to crack and crack due to the inherent dilation of the material.
Heavier than drywall, but on the other hand does not support much weight. Another disadvantage of this type of liner is that it may have mildew marks or yellowish marks over time.
The drywall liner is more expensive, this has no doubt. But if you evaluate the cost-benefit of this type of liner you will see that it may be the best option.
The drywall liner is made up of large gypsum boards coated with a cardboard paper. By its thin thickness, the drywall liner allows you to gain floor space in the environments.
One of the great advantages of drywall liner is its quick installation. The placement of this liner is simpler, easier and does not generate as much dirt. The drywall, unlike the plating, does not suffer from the effects of expansion, and can be installed in any type of environment.
Another advantage is that drywall gives better temperature control and good sound insulation. The electrical and hydraulic installations adapt better in this type of lining.
The tip is: if you have a small space and want to spend little, the board liner is probably the best option. However, if the area to be covered by the liner is large and you are looking for agility and functionality, opt for the drywall, even if it weighs more in your pocket.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Gypsum Lining

- One of the main disadvantages of plaster lining is its low water resistance. The minimum contact is already capable of damaging the board. For this reason, it should not be used outdoors or in humid environments (except in cases where drywall boards are resistant to moisture). Gutters on the roof can also damage the liner;
- The plaster lining is more brittle when compared to other materials, such as wood. There is a maximum weight limit that the lining can withstand per square meter. Therefore, ceiling fans may not be a good idea in this type of lining, for example;
