Ceiling Insulation

Most times, installing a plasterboard ceiling is a DIY project that can save you a lot of money. Before you start, check with an electrician to make sure there are no live wires hanging around. If youre going to insulate your ceiling, the insulation should be fixed beforehand; a structure must be there to hold the weight of the insulation. 


Types of Ceiling Insulation
  • Gypsum Boards,
  • Polystyrene Boards EPS and XPS,
  • PIR Boards,
  • Composite Boards and Rolls,
  • Insulated Boards,
  • Accessories
Installation
  • Use a spirit level to check whether the wooden trusses, or joists to which the plasterboard will be attached are level.
  • Measure the ceiling length and mark out the lengths on the plasterboard. This way, you'd know how many lengths are needed.
  • Measure the width of the room to work out how many sheets of plasterboard you will need to cover the ceiling. Then mark up where the sheets need to be cut, so they'd evenly to fit the ceiling area.
  • Mark where your ceiling battens are on the top of the wall, so youll know where to drill in the screws.
  • Mark all openings, such as ceiling lights,
  • Make sure to put on your safety glasses.
  • Lift the plasterboard up to the ceiling and start drilling in the screws, in line with where you've marked the battens. If you've applied glue to the battens, remember not to drill in a screw where you've applied glue, because when the glue dries it will push the screw out.
