Why choose a stretch ceiling in your home?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a stretch ceiling compared to a conventional Gyproc, plastered or system ceiling? More and more people are opting for a stretch ceiling to renovate an old ceiling or to install a new ceiling in both a renovation and new-build home. There is of course a reason that people increasingly opt for a stretch ceiling. This has to do with the following advantages:
- - Quick installation
- - Proper assembly
- - Furniture may remain in the same room
- - 10-year warranty
- - Both the choice for a non-acoustic ceiling and for an acoustic ceiling
- - The price of a stretch ceiling is not higher than any other type of suspended ceiling
- - A stretch ceiling is maintenance-free, you can easily clean the stretch ceiling with the accompanying cleaner
- - Sleek and seamless finish
Choose between a stretch ceiling / gyproc ceiling / system ceiling
When making a choice for a new ceiling, you must always take into account what is very important to you, is that a sleek finish, acoustics or flexibility? If you opt for a tight ceiling, the choice for a stretch ceiling is as good as made, because a stretch ceiling is always mounted tightly, so you will not see any smearing of repainting in the ceiling as well as no unevenness due to poor assembly and finishing of the ceiling. the gyproc ceiling (or plastered ceiling). If you are more interested in an acoustic solution both as a wall and as a ceiling, the choice for a stretch ceiling compared to an acoustic gyproc or an acoustic spray filler is certainly a choice that could be at the top of your list. This is because when placing both an acoustic gyproc ceiling and an acoustic spray filler ceiling, a lot of dirt is made, and the installation time is quite long, for an acoustic false ceiling in your living space with gyproc or spray filler you are soon 3 to 4 working days, unlike a stretch ceiling where we can finish your acoustic ceiling in 1 day without making too much dirt, and the furniture can remain in the room. If you opt for flexibility, then with a stretch ceiling for mounting you are even very flexible up to the day itself, the only thing is that after installation it is a bit more difficult to add lighting. need to install new cloth. But if the stretch ceiling fabric has to be replaced, the cost is comparable to repainting the ceiling, so this is no longer the same cost as when you had the stretch ceiling installed, because the existing construction and the existing clamping profiles can be reused. If you want ultimate flexibility both before and after installation, we usually opt for a type of system ceiling where the ceiling tiles are very easy to disassemble, the look of this type of ceiling is much busier and you therefore do not have the same look as with an acoustic stretch ceiling or an acoustic plaster.
Have you been able to make your choice? Or is price also an important factor?
It is certainly not easy to make a choice between these 3 types of ceilings, the view and the ease of installation is certainly important. But the price is also very important, when people talk about a stretch ceiling we often hear that this is an expensive solution .... But the opposite is true, a stretch ceiling is a system that is completely finished and maintenance-free after installation , which means that you never have to paint, sand, re-tension, or the like again. In contrast to a gyproc ceiling, with a suspended ceiling with plasterboard you have on the one hand the gyproc that is mounted and finished, but this ceiling also needs to be painted, so this ensures that you have several operations to finish the ceiling. work, as well as requiring additional finishing after installation. When placing a gyproc ceiling, you must therefore take into account that the ceiling still needs to be finished, which means that the ceiling still needs to be sanded and painted, and you have to repaint after 5 to 10 years. this is no longer necessary with a stretch ceiling.
If you opt for a suspended ceiling, this will mainly be because of the flexibility, as well as because of the price. This system is cheaper and more flexible than a stretch ceiling, but does not offer the same degree of finish.
