Topic: False ceiling



For my proposed home in Chennai instead of traditional plastering of the ceiling slab, I am planning to cover this with gypsum board false ceiling for all rooms except bathroom which would be in aluminium false ceiling. The walls also would be plastered only to a height of  6 inches above the proposed false ceiling level (about 8 feet). 

The cost saved on plastering and painting could help me in using it on false ceiling thereby saving on A/C cost, better looks, nice concealed LED lighting. Please let me know the disadvantages if any and if there are any precautions to be taken before false ceiling is done.

Dear PR Jawahar
           In my view you should plaster the wall up to ceiling height and apply white wash under the ceiling and on walls side. This will avoid any type of fungus and bactarias in wall masonry joints and pollute air of the room. Cost has no matter.
