It is necessary to mention one more advantage of ceiling tiles - it can help to close the uneven ceiling, as if suspended panels. In principle, they will be installed in the same way. The first "rough" layer - a particleboard, fiberboard, plywood, QSB or a plasterboard, which is attached to the metal profile. Already the top right tile can be glued on an even keel. Offset from capital ceiling is 5-10 centimeters. In the resulting hidden niche can hide the wiring, communications, "deaf" lights and everything else.
That is, the sticky tiles will be carried out on the false ceiling. For its styling is better to use (in order of priority):
- rough drywall - cheap, reliable, durable;
- Particleboard - ideal for a private house;
- Fibreboard - a cheaper option of wood rough finish;
