Q:Can this be installed on a ceiling with rafters 24 inch on center without sagging?
by|Nov 11, 2022
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  RBak, When installing on ceilings, the long dimensions must be perpendicular or horizontal to ceiling joists. Also all panel ends and edges be supported by framing, blocking, furring or a solid nailable backing. Drywall is not a nailable backing. Since 24" oc is the max span, We recommend adding additional blocking for support.

    A:  I have installed on a ceilling with rafters 16 inch on center I would suggest backing with 1x2 behind the panels for extra support. I used a drywall hanger on ply bead panels to hold while applying screws. So far, over two years on front porch without any issues, knock on wood. Good luck.

      Q:Does this need a backing or can it be installed directly over studs.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Shaen, Ply-Bead can be installed direct to stud.

      by|Nov 28, 2022

        A:  It's very sturdy installed directly over studs, even 24" apart. I did my front porch ceiling, 38' by 8', 24" on center 2 years ago, it looks perfect still. I used drywall screws, countersunk, and spackling over the screws. You have to sand the joints to get them to look seamless.

        Answer This Question

        A:  You may use Ply-Bead on the ceiling of a porch. You cannot use it as siding as it is not an exterior product. It is an Exposure 1 grade product.

          A:  I’m using it on the inside of my screened porch. It’s on the outside walls about 30” high. Seems to be holding up well but I did paint it almost immediately. I think it is considered to be a siding product. It would need to be sealed or painted.

              Worst buy yet
              We have purchased this three times for a basement remodel, bought more today the they have cheapened the boards, thinner, awful edges, below you can see the old on the left and the new boards on the right. Absolutely poor quality. Not lowering price of course.

                I love the way this plywood makes my porch looks. It is beautiful and makes it look like it was done by an architecture. It gives my ceiling a really nice finish.

                    This is a great product for updating a room. Easy to install with a air nail gun or finishing nails. I used it to enhance the appearance and durability of my garage. I cut the panels in half (4') length, as that is the part of the wall that gets the most abuse. I will add a trim piece to the top and base board at the bottom. Can be stained and or painted. I'm painting a medium gray, the whole garage will get a new painting.
