      For framing, metal furrings are ok since it is termite proof and easy to install.......for ceiling boards, either use fiber cement or gypsum board(preferably not china made).....plywood is still plausible.....never ever use magnesium boards....waste of money and time.

        best pa din to use steel frame finished with gypsum board for interior walls and ceiling. you get the smooth professional finish pa after painting it.

                i suggest you use MR, moisture resistant gypsum board by Boral. then i would paint it with elastomeric paint para mas matibay. personally i would use cement board by Hardiflex, but they do use gypsum board sa bathroom. thats how we do it sa states before.

                  am thinking of using ALUMINUM SHEETS for covering our wall ng 75yo spanish house namin than hardiflex or gypsum dahil cheaper sya, ok din ba ito kasi ang dami ko nang nakikita sa tagaytay ganito ang ginagawa? napipinturahan ba ang aluminum sheets?

                      regarding the price, hardiflex & gypsum board, which is cheaper?

                        there are basically 3 kinds of gypsum board, we have the standard core, the moisture resistant and the fire stop. regarding the question about the price

                        price between hardiflex 4.5 against standard core 12mm = standrd core cheaper per sq.m

                        price between hardiflex 4.5 against 13mm moisture resistant = hardiflex is cheaper.

                        pero yung painted finish difference, id always vote for gypsum board.

                        we are introducing a new product, its a cement board, id say far better than Hardiflex, imported from thailand and zero percent asbestos. i still have to master the art of patching the joints for this board before we venture sa installation as we guarantee our work. syempre ayoko din mapahiya.

                            That would be just fine. But why dwell on wood for your ceiling when you could use metal furring and gypsum or ficem board?less labor, easier to paint unlike in plywood, termite proof, lightweight and fire proof..best of all, much cheaper...

                              How about bamboo. Handmade by local carpenters or ready-made laminated. If only there was a source of laminated bamboo competitive in price with plywood. Of course, any bamboo would have to be treated, and would not be fireproof.

                              Could that stand repeated unscrewing and rescrewing without the screw holes loosening, or is it brittle like Hardiflex and meant for one-time install only?
