Mounted a ceiling is quite simple: by using dowel nails fastened metal frame of bent sections at intervals of 60 cm, the plane of the frame is aligned with a set of pads, then set high profiles at intervals of 50 (60) cm and secured at the joints with metal screws. Further, under sections put plasterboard sheet and attached with self-tapping screws at intervals of 20 cm
To create the illusion of a perfectly smooth surface of the plasterboard ceiling on the glued seams, and then her trowel, glue fiberglass and paint over latex paint 2-3 coats. The disadvantage of this material is the possibility of cracking and precipitation structure. Distinguish normal and water-resistant gypsum board that is ideal for wet rooms (bathrooms whether swimming pools). The price is an average of 250 Dollars per sheet (3 m). In the calculation of the material must be added 10% of the total area of the room.
