I have low budget to decor my, so I am looking for less expensive but durable material. I came to know about pvc wall and ceiling panels. You have also mentioned the advantages of having pvc panels, it is water resistant also. So I think it is more useful in the car wash garage and in bathroom also. There is no trouble of sanding and painting. Thanks for sharing the disadvantages. I will keep in mind those in the time of installation.

Would like to know whether PVC false ceiling is acceptable from Fire protection point of view. Is it not adding to the fire load of the building?

    epicvzu9 · September 19, 2019 at 8:43 pm

    No, it’s not Acceptable.

These false ceilings look great. In fact, I can say that these designs are what I could want in my place.

Nishant · October 12, 2019 at 11:33 am

PVC can be seen as the trend nowadays but this does not mean that the product in itself is flawless. High cost associated with it’s implementation is one such problem.

Vikas · October 31, 2019 at 4:31 pm

False ceiling with some fancy designs to go along with my walls can be my only choice. More brainstorming is needed.
