    Hardiflex vs Marine plywood for ceilings

    Are Hardiflex really advisable for ceiling use? Many say that they fall off in time due to loose nail holes which enlarge when hardinail are overdriven. Please advise.

    Hello,

    It depends of which area you are using poly-carbonate materials, Poly-carbonate materials is not advisable for interior ceiling of houses and offices. Offices are commonly uses Armstrong ceiling or gypsum board ceiling

    Newbie here.
    How do you fasten hf to metal furrings? Screws, nails, some say rivets? Can hardinails enough to secure to metal furrings?
    By d way, I used hf in ceilings under GI roofs in my house with wooden studs. I noticed the area is quire hot day and night w/c means it is not a good matl for temp. Insulation.
    Thanks n regards to all!

    hardiflex fiber cement products lahat yan, brittle siya unlike marine plywood, the problem as far as i know is mas mabigat ang marine since makakapal sila unlike sa ficem ng hardiflex na 1/4 yung pinakamanipis sa market,hardiflex pang exterior talaga yan alam ko, then gypsum current trend sa mga interior ngayon the problem is mahina yung tolerance sa mga leaks.

    The asbestos version of Hardiflex ceased to be produced back in 1981.

    yes mikaztro and boybi. i think kht mariine plywood or any material basta ang problema ay tulo, masisira po talaga. i think para maiwasan ang tulo dapat may good water proofing ang deck slab or ang galvanize roofing material para maiwasan ang tulo

    Re: Hardiflex vs Marine plywood for ceilings

    I am using metal furring with marine ply (the very thin one). After a few months, I have been hearing cracking and snapping sound at anytime of the day. When I examine the ceiling, wala naman unusual. On mid afternoon, I can feel the heat wave inside but I think ok naman ang ventilation. Sa mga western sites, sabi nila, metal expanding and contracting due to temperature change pero sa tingin ko naman, hindi naman extreme ang temperature sa ceiling. I even have a circular attic vent. I can not see where it is. Can anyone give me idea? I see very small cracks now between panels of plywood in my ceiling but they are very small that you really have to stare to notice but again, natatakot ako kasi baka sign na yun. Help

    maganda naman talaga ang fiber cement board, madali lang naman ikabit yan basta pantay ang metal frames.

    At hindi lang Hardiflex ang available na brand sa market madami ding supplier ng fiber cement na quality rin naman

    if the ceiling isn't beneath a roof (ergo no possible leak), i use gypsum. once painted it looks smoother than hf or wood, and it absorbs noise as well.

    medy madali lang siya to install, but it's best kung may helper. diretsong screw + adhesive lang with no need to pilot hole. just be gentle with the board.

    finishing's another matter. unlike hf the screws are easy to make flush, but applying masilya only looks easy - i've learned the hard way to only get skilled workers for paint prep.

    I'm assuming you're going to do this DIY. Better go with PVC because its easier to install. One person can do it alone, just like Doc V did:

    http://www.pinoyhandyman.com/showthr...hlight=ceiling

    Hardiflex (or fiber cement board) comes in 4' x 8' sheets. Its heavy and very difficult to install just by yourself. If you drop it it'll break.

    One more advantage of PVC is finishing. As you can see in Doc V's project, PVC's appearance is already good right after installation. No need to paint.

    With ficem boards you have to apply putty to hide the screws... sand it flat (a very dusty affair)... then the whole painting regimen.


    If you're going to have this contracted out then the best person to answer your question is your contractor.
