Let’s talk about one of the most popular and most controversial types of ceilings on the market today: polyvinyl chloride ceilings, or
PVC ceilings. Mostly a manufactured plastic, PVC is present in various elements, from toys and tools to some construction materials (as professional contractors will undoubtedly tell you). And now, some ceilings also sport this material, meaning it is now more present in our homes than ever before.
Even though PVC presents many different advantages that sets it apart from other ceiling materials, it doesn’t come without its fair share of drawbacks. Thus, if you were wondering about bringing this type of ceiling into your home, yet haven’t read up on it (as you should), leave it up to us to inform you…
Developed in Europe in the 1970s, PVC cladding was first used for decorative interior wall finishes, thanks to it sporting unique properties compared to other options at the time. Today, for easy installation, PVC panels usually have a hollowz core and are quite lightweight with a smooth surface.
