What is a Tongue and Groove Ceiling?
And what benefits do they offer.
Need a splash of that rustic woody feel? A Tongue and Groove ceiling is the perfect addition to your home. The Tongue and Groove (T&G) ceiling is made up of long wooden boards that fit in side-by-side across a ceiling, hence the name Tongue in the Groove. If you’d like to DIY this installation, it is very simple to do so due to the secured joints all you need is just some glue and nailing.
Reasons Why You Should Choose Tongue and Groove Ceiling over Drywall
When installing a drywall into your home, it’s a little difficult if you want to do it DIY style because of the intricacy needed to get that smooth and seamless finish which would be difficult to achieve for a beginner. If not done properly it will then expose the imperfections within your craftmanship. Installing drywall is an intricate job done by professionals or experienced craftsmen.
A Tongue and Groove Ceiling can be a one-person project when it comes to installing, the secure joints aid in providing an easier method of installation. The only tough part about installing is ensuring they are evenly straightened out to maintain parallel to the other walls on both sides of the ceilings. Other than that, the boards are super light and thin which makes it easier for you to lift them into the right spot and install them efficiently.
It is extremely stylish with hints of rustic touches that makes the atmosphere elegantly modern and homey.
