LPMBP Construction knows that skimmed ceilings, also called flush plastered ceilings or false ceilings, is becoming the norm in most residences and commercial properties.
Skimmed ceilings is not something one should try as a DIY project…
Precision and accuracy when constructing the structure is of utmost importance. If the structure is poorly constructed the end product will be of poor visual quality. A poorly constructed structure will also lead to cracks forming over time or a partial or total collapse of the ceiling. There are also different specifications with regards to the spacing between the galvanized cross tees, which needs to be adhered to, to ensure the structure can bear the weight of the Gypsym boards and plaster layers.
After the ceiling structure is completed 9.5mm taper edge or square edge Gypsum board cladding is used to clad the structure. When fitting the 9mm Gypsum boards care needs to be taken to ensure that you adhere to the manufacturer’s specification with regards to the spacing between screws-keep in mind that the screws are the only item securing the 9mm Gypsum board to the structure.
After all of the above is completed two coats of Rhinolite is applied and skimmed to a smooth flawless finish.
Either one of three options can be applied where the ceiling meet the wall: Option one is a square edge finish similar to how it looks when a slab meets a brick wall. Option two is shadow line cornice and option three is normal cornice as per the choice of the client.
If any of the above solutions doesn’t meet your requirements one can also consider bulkheads or light troughs.
