Ceiling Panels

PostBy: Richard S. On: Wed Dec 14, 2011 12:19 pm

Looking for something cheap but nicer than OSB and less work than drywall. Preferably 4X8 sheets I can screw right to the ceiling. It's for a garage so it doesn't have to look great.

What about using the plastic "sheets" that HD sells as tub surround in the bathroom. They cut easily and you can just screw them up. I think they come in 4X6 pieces. The joints are hidden by molding. I'm not sure of the price but it might be worth checking out. Good luck, Lisa

"Less work than drywall"

Please explain. :) Not sure on how you view the work to be too much.
I have thoughts in mind, but it would depend on what is the negative.

check your local BORG stores, Valu Home Centers, etc...they have 1/8" thk paneling that is pretty cheap, OSB and Drywall are about a wash on price now, at least around here (About $8-10/sheet).

how about the Metal Roofing, a lot people use that too for ceilings and walls. I know it's not cheap.

I would go with OSB and paint it if possible, then if you want to hang something, you can just screw it right it.

Okay,I thought so and I understand that! :)

I don't know how readily available it is in your area...but there is a drywall panel made without the tapered edges...just butt-up to adjacent sheet and screw. Same deal as installing the OSB, but it's drywall.

Richard,

How about those 4x8 sheets of rigid foam board with the nice shiny surface on 1 side.

It insulates plus helps to light up the surrounding area due to the reflection of the shiny surface. Cover the seams with 1x3 furring strips.

I've seen foam insulated 4X8 sheets that have a finished plastic coating on one side.

That's what my shop has, except they used some sort of metal tape on the seams.

So are the wooden trusses or joists that the panels will be attached to. How about the gas tank on the tractor, mower, snowblower, etc ???

Most times the big issue is the toxic smoke fromn the foam that gets you first, not the flames...............

But that foam burns fast when it catches and any gas inside the garage is contained, take quite a of bit of fire before they do anything. Gas cans themselves are stored outside.

The thing with a ceiling is anything thin tends to sag. If you use a thin wall product it may sag between the attachment points. In garages & shops I have used painted OSB. The trick is to paint it first. Here's a pic of the ceiling of my garage. I bought a 5 gallon can of cheap latex and rolled it on thick. It took a few sheets to calculate the right amount, but once that was figured out it went fast. We poured a proper puddle on each sheet & rolled like hell. I don't think it took an hour to paint 24 sheets. After they were air-nailed up I caulked the seams and touched up the paint. Voila! As fast a ceiling as I have ever done.

Those pictures would be how my garage looked a few days ago for the wall panels. OSB is not an option that has been eliminated.
