If the height of the walls allows for the repair of the ceiling cover for the purpose of alignment, installation spotlighting or to implement a daring design ideas - mounted plasterboard ceilings.Before starting the installation, read the design ideas of plasterboard ceilings.
Multilevel ceilings - a complex structure, which carry their own without the proper experience should not be. In this article we take a look at the basics of working with multi-level ceilings on the example of two-level gypsum ceiling.

As we have already mentioned, multi-level ceilings plasterboard with their hands to collect no experience of such work is difficult enough, but for educational p
In this article, we consider one of the most common types of multi-level ceilings - a two-level backlit (ceiling design provides the organization of "core" of the ceiling is not a tension system, and plasterboard. See photo).
How to make plasterboard (multi-level): Brief Instructions
Clear the ceiling of the old covering - wallpaper, paint, plastic tiles.
Using a tape measure and a laser level, note the height of the ceiling of the future bi-level (excluding the thickness of the sheets of drywall).On one wall shall be marked by 3 to 4 marks.Connect line can be either a laser or if the laser level you do not have a paintbrush thread.Draw a line connecting point.This is the basic level of the ceiling.
be marked on the ceiling fixing points of the frame profile CD (how to correctly mark the ceiling, we wrote in a previous article).The same markup use for mounting the suspensions, which will subsequently be assigned a profile.Carry out the first line for the fixing of the ceiling should also be 3-4 by connecting control points.After that, in steps of 600 mm parallel to the first line of stamped and bars for the rest of the profile.
work with, profile UD: Drill holes for mounting the steps of 300 mm is applied profile to the wall so that the bottom edge of the profile located strictly on the markup.
chippers outline the space for mounting dowels.Drill hole puncher, to drive the dowels.With a profile to the re-marking, fasten it securely to the wall.
IMPORTANT! work with screws and dowels takes a lot of time, because in order to accelerate the process we recommend using a professional tool.For example, a gas gun or at least screwdriver.Virtually any tool for such work can be hired.
suspension are putting in place to drill the ceiling fixture using the Hammer.You can do one or two of these holes to enhance the reliability of the design of fasteners.Drill the holes for each hanger, trying to drive them dowels, and then fasten the screws on the suspensions.
IMPORTANT! When drilling holes for suspension, take care to mark the line was strictly perpendicular to the suspension passing clear of the center.
Fasten frame profile CD (the first level of the ceiling).To do this, bend the ends of the hangers, giving them a U-shaped: a profile across the width of the result must pass freely inside.The design of the suspensions: each of them has a production opening, allowing to adjust the height of the future construction.
based on the desired height of the ceiling, determine in which of the holes, screw fastening screws.Reliable connection hangers - a compound formed by two screws - one on each side.
After fastening straps of the frame profile using roulette carry markings on the ceiling installation sites krepezha- "crab" (used to connect the cross bars Profile multilevel ceilings).
mark up, install crabs.According to the data component mounting technology, each such fixture must be got on top of the profile antennae down firmly snapping inside the profile when pressed.Crabs must be secured with screws to the profile.
Set the jumpers to the frame.To do this with the help of pre-grinders or tin snips cut into the required number of jumpers from the original profile CD (size and number of jumpers for each design is determined individually).
To set the jumpers on the place each of them is necessary to start from the bottom and a crab, with a force of pressing the jumper to him snap.The jumper must also be fixed with two screws.
Installation tiered ceiling plasterboard with their hands: the second level of the structure
Profile CD is necessary to get into the UD guide and fix it to the suspension.Profile 2 is fixed to the guide screws.
rigidity can be increased by connecting all the strips Profile CD of the second level on the perimeter using a profile UD (1 screw fixation).
to secure the upright pieces of drywall, profile of the second and first levels should be connected vertically by means of a jumper made of profile CD.Such jumpers must be installed on each of the profile strips CD (second level structure) arranged horizontally.
This mounting frame two-level ceiling can be considered consummated.
multilevel plasterboard ceilings with lighting
If you are planning to organize in the ceiling lighting, after the completion of a frame structure to mount the wiring needed for the earlier plans.
There are several options for laying electric cables in the framework of multi-level ceiling, for example, the wire can be routed directly to the ripple - from the place of the network connection to the place of installation of the lighting device or by attaching to the wall of the cable channel, which will then be placed wires.
IMPORTANT! performing installation work on the electrical power supply, do not forget to leave a margin of 10-15 cm for the withdrawal of the cable channel outside the framework of the ceiling.

mounting drywall sheets
Installation of drywall sheets in the multi-level ceilings, always start with the first level.In order to make the structure safer, sheets of drywall can be attached to and locked in extensibility profile screwed to the ceiling suspension.To perform this type of fasteners need to use special screws, screwing them in increments of no more than 250 mm.
completing the first level of trim, can be taken in the second.To work with the second level you will often cut the drywall sheets, making them the desired shape or size.
To do this, use a special knife for drywall or appropriate power.Make sure the sheets of drywall second level the same length with profiles.
Trimming sheets of plasterboard is as follows: a ruler on the back side of the sheet are cut cardboard lining, a little deeper into the gypsum core.Thereafter, the sheet neatly nadlamyvayutsya by a cut line and the drywall cut from the back side of the sheet.
sheets after the cutting is screwed to the profiles of the markup, according to the plan design.
To hide the internal frame structure, vertical cuts of the pieces of drywall must be secured between the first and second levels of the ceiling by screwing them to the uprights of the metal profile.
In the case where the designer conceived the second level of the ceiling has a complex curved contour, a sheet of drywall is bent on such technology:
- cut plasterboard strip richly moistened with water;
- few minutes later perforated needle roller;
- bent on a template and set aside to dry completely.
only after the drywall found primary strength, having a predetermined shape, the strip is attached to the profile.
After the installation of all parts of the drywall sheets for marking drill holes for the installation of lighting (using a special crown).
joints drywall sheets reinforced paper tape or serpyanka then shpaklyuyut and overwritten.

Qualitative performance of the above work you can do:
- in Moscow - from 380-450 rubles./m² (depending on the type of structure);
- in Kiev - from 65 UAH. / M² (depending on the type of construction).
