Panelscape shower ceiling repair

Mouldy bathroom ceilings can be a real problem and good ventilation with plenty of sunlight is the best cure but if these two things aren't available then don't panic, there is a product that can cover walls, ceilings and even tiles and inhibit the growth of mould and mildew.

Panelscape is designed to be installed over existing walls and ceilings and because it is PVC it resists mould.

The product is relatively easy to install with the right tools and some roof and gutter silicone.


I used panelscape recently to cover up a ceiling in the shower at a unit in Castle Hill which had been finished roughly and was starting to split and take in moisture.

 
I removed the shower rose and gave the area a good wipe down with some diluted liquid sugar soap to ensure good adhesion and then set to work measuring and cutting my panels.


A straight edge and a fine tooth saw or stanley knife are the best tools for cutting the PVC panels and a hole saw can be used for any down lights or exhaust fan holes or in this case, the hole for the shower rose.



After applying some roof and gutter silicone to the back of the panels it is time to attach them to the ceiling.

I used wet area silicone (white) for the edges and an edging strip for the exposed end.


The end result is a big improvement and best of all the ceiling won't be deteriorating any more.
I gave the rest of the bathroom ceiling a fresh coat of paint and applied some new silicone to some missing grout in the shower too!
