Watch out! This is the Cause of Home Gypsum Ceilin

Basically the ceiling is made with the intention of preventing hot or cold weather so that it does not go directly into the house after passing through the roof. At present the ceiling is not only a barrier to heat or cold, but also as a decoration to beautify the interior of a building. Today, modern homes generally install ceilings made of gypsum boards. This is because the aesthetic value produced is very good, the ceiling looks neat, flat and smooth like there is no connection at all. Gypsum is also very easy to form into various types of ceilings, from conventional to tangible cathedrals. In addition, the gypsum ceiling can be a good indicator of whether your roof is leaking or not. However, it does not rule out the possibility of gypsum ceilings also having disadvantages, including being easily destroyed. Yup, compared to other materials, the gypsum ceiling tends to be fragile. It is not even possible for the gysum ceiling to collapse too.

What is the reason for the gypsum ceiling to collapse easily?

Gypsum ceiling is not resistant to water

Compared to other types of ceilings, this gypsum ceiling is very vulnerable to water. If there is water seepage from the roof on the ceiling, it can not only leave stain spots on the surface of the gypsum, but also can make the ceiling destroyed. If there is not a small portion of the gypsum ceiling that is destroyed, it is possible that the ceiling can collapse.

The installation process is incorrect

This type of gypsum ceiling material is very precisely installed in a house whose roof cover is a concrete plate because there is a guarantee that it will not leak. Apart from using screws, installation can be done using gypsum powder or compound. This powder functions as glue on the connection or list and ornament. Installation of gypsum joints is usually done by plastering first. Well, if the installation process is not correct, such as the connection is not right then it can make your house's gypsum ceiling collapse.

There are several tricks to installing the correct gypsum ceiling:

First: when installing gypsum screws must be moved to the right depth to achieve maximum durability. Because, if pushed too far, the binder will actually penetrate the gypsum and make its durability decrease.

Second: there must be enough fasteners, which is given the right distance, this serves to hold the ceiling.


Besides being resistant to water, the gypsum ceiling is also vulnerable to impact. The fragile gypsum structure makes it impervious to hard impact. So you have to keep your gypsum ceiling in order to be safe from impact, for example when you clean the ceiling.

Not installed by experts

Not everyone can install or arrange gypsum ceilings. You better use the services of experts in the field of installation and coupling of gypsum ceilings to install them. If installed by any person, it is not impossible that the gypsum ceiling instead of protecting it will actually harm the occupants of the house.

Installed in an incorrect area

It is not recommended to install gypsum ceilings in the bathroom, exterior, or parts of the house with high humidity. It is not impossible that the gypsum ceiling will collapse in a short time due to fragility due to high humidity. For areas that have high enough humidity, you can install a waterproof or waterproof gypsum ceiling.

The support is not strong

Be sure to install the gypsum ceiling, first attaching a support or strong support because this material is prone to cracking. If the support is not strong, chances are that the gypsum ceiling will collapse, even when there is no leak on the roof.

Fasteners are not applied correctly

The collapse of the gypsum ceiling can also occur because the distance between the fasteners is incorrect. The case, the ceiling beam with gypsum failed to be properly attached. Because if the spacing and apart fasteners in the installation process can make glue fail to stick firmly to the sky. However, when fasteners are properly spaced, the gypsum ceiling can still occur. This happens when fasteners are too moved.

Another disadvantage of the gypsum ceiling is that it is not soundproof. If you have the intention to make a studio in the house, then installing a gypsum ceiling is not a suitable choice.

Eits, but don't be discouraged first. For those of you who want to install the gypsum ceiling, here are some techniques or methods that can be applied easily to avoid leakage or damage. The first step is to ensure the construction of the roof above it does not leak. Before installing palfon gypsum, you can check by watering the roof with water. With this step you can find out whether the roof has a leak or not. You can also choose to use gypsum from the waterproof type. This type of gypsum contains a protective layer so that water cannot penetrate. But of course, the price of gypsum is more expensive than ordinary gypsum.
You can apply Gypsum type to space and place which have a higher risk of roof and wall leakage. Like for example a bathroom or toilet. Another tip in the use of gypsum for the ceiling is not to use gypsum on the ceiling in the exterior area of ??the terrace, because it is prone to rainwater tampering.

How, now you know what to pay attention before using the gypsum ceiling? Because it is one element in the interior, the ceiling may not be underestimated.
