A versatile material used extensively in construction is Gypsum. This material is used in various stages of constructing your house. It can be used in finishing the ceilings, building a wall, or even to line or coat a surface. Once this mineral is extracted, it is processed through a milling and calcining process to get it ready for use. Gypsum, when used correctly, by a professional, can give a classic and exquisite effect to your home.

1. Used in Coating

There are two kinds of gypsum that are used in such scenarios. One is the plaster and the other is the plasterboard. Both these are used during construction for sealing walls, ceilings and finishing a surface beautifully. This is also used in other ways where this material is directly applied to walls or it is put into molds to be used as bricks or slabs. Take a cue from this living room rendered by the architects at DM ARQUITETURA E ENGENHARIA.

2. False ceilings

You can see how the gypsum board is used to create an amazing visual effect. A gypsum board which is reinforced using two layers cardboard, gypsum and additives are much more effective as it is resistant to cracking that is generally seen in regular plaster. This is also commonly known as a drywall.
