Why there is such a difference?
Let’s have a look at the difference between POP False Ceiling and Gypsum plasterboard False Ceiling.
Comparison between POP False Ceiling and Gypsum False Ceiling
POP false ceilings are made of POP powder. The POP powder is rubbed on
On the other hand, Gypsum board false ceiling is made using gypsum plasterboards, fixed with a screw to the metal frame which is then connected to the soffit. Gypsum plasterboards are available in larger sheets that POP sheets and therefore there are fewer joints. The joints are finished using a special compound.
Fitting gypsum plasterboard is a faster process that is clean, greatly efficient and healthy with very less dust and muddle as compared to POP false ceiling. Gypsum plasterboard also has more strength as compared to POP. One of the main reason why gypsum boards are used for a false ceiling is
Gypsum plasterboard’s false ceiling offers abundant flexibility in design. Gypsum plasterboard’s adaptability makes
Today, in major cities, the use of gypsum has become so popular that the difference in cost holds little to no impact on the consumer’s choice. The benefits of gypsum — smooth-finished, easy-to-install and less messy — justifying the reasonable increase in cost. In addition to that, if the design is very complex — like multiple layers or involving organic forms — gypsum will get the job done proficiently and in a shorter time-frame. You can also flawlessly pair gypsum with other materials like plywood, glass, etc. for added design features in the ceiling.
- To syndicate the quality material with a shy budget, choose a simple outlying ceiling design and use gypsum boards.
- Add false ceiling only to some parts or only as borders to the existing ceiling. In this way, you can retain the main ceiling height at most places (which helps with the spacious feel of the room) while still introducing a design feature.
- You can play with the form within this design scheme and include other materials like plywood and glass wherever needed. However, make sure the design still hides wiring.
Factors That Determine the Cost of False Ceilings
- The design of the false ceiling, and how ornate and decorative it is;
- The availability and pricing of the ceiling material in your local market.
- The quality of material used
- The total area to be covered (bigger areas tend to have lower per square feet rates as materials can then be ordered in bulk);
- Other costs like electrical work, gala cutting, light fixtures and surface finish.
If you add plywood the cost will differ depending on the type of plywood used (commercial is economical, waterproof ply is comparatively expensive, and PVC wood is cheaper than both), the type of laminate or facings used to finish the surface (veneers are expensive), and the complexity of the design (how it effects the quantity of material and skilled labour required).
If you add insert glass The costing will need to take into account the kind of glass used (clear, opaque, textured), and the size and product of glass used. Acrylic can be a cheaper substitute to glass, but its ability to diffuse light will differ from
