What are stretch ceilings?

Stretch ceiling consists of sheets of flexible polyvinyl chloride, also known as PVC, made to measure, shaped, which can create waves and other shapes of different volumes, in any color and in different finishes (matte, satin, gloss …).

Even 3D images or drawings can be printed.

These PVC sheets are placed on profiles that are previously mounted on the ceiling, in order to hold and tighten the said sheets.

In short, without going into very specific details, these are stretch ceilings.

But if you haven’t seen a roof of these characteristics, it’s normal for these words to sound like Chinese to you and you haven’t heard anything.

So, according to the ancient saying “A picture is worth a million words“Let’s see some ceilings decorated with stretch ceilings.

– Another of its advantages is its impermeability, because if a neighbor upstairs leaves the faucet open or we get water because the roof is in poor condition, those roofs do not deteriorate.

As I said before, they are immune to water, even if a lot of water falls, these roofs are designed to deform due to the weight of the water, creating a big bubble.

Although like everything, they also have their drawbacks, although there are very few of them.

Disadvantages of PVC stretch ceilings
