Due to scarcity of land, Singapore houses tend to be relatively small. As such, the idea of renovation for aesthetic purposes is quite common as house owners want to get the best out of what they have. Since decades ago, the idea of wood ceiling has been well received by the more advanced and wealthier civilisation. Timber ceiling brings art and nature to our very home, which gives the refreshing feel every time we look up. As far as wood ceiling is concerned, Teak in Singapore is the most commonly used as it has the most beautiful grain amongst the South East Asian wood.
The installation of wood ceiling normally starts with the varnishing of the wood strips because it is easier to varnish the wood on the ground then when already installed on the ceiling. For most Teak ceiling, the varnish is usually natural colour to enhance the beauty appeal of the Teak grain. Once the varnishing is done, the installation of the timber ceiling may commence. Common types of ceiling on which we can lay our wood ceiling are concrete, false ceiling and wood beams. Depending on the type of existing ceiling, a prerequisite plywood ceiling before the real wood ceiling may or may not be needed. Should our valued clients need to install lightings or fan, they can simply highlight where the necessary points are or let us liaise and coordinate professionally with their installers.
Most wood ceiling is made of Burmese Teak. Teak is naturally oily, strong and durable material which comes from the tropical hardwood trees in Myanmar. Burmese Teak is well known for the combination of its golden colour and eye-pleasing natural grains.
Why Teak Ceiling?
Teak wood generally lasts for decades, so if you want to have a long-lasting ceiling material for your premisesthat can also withstand every weather and situation, then the teak ceiling Singapore is the choice you should opt for. Burmese Teak also has natural oil which gives shielding protection from termites so one should not have to worry about the termites and bugs. Ceilings and walls are usually for aesthetic purposes and while any wood can be made a material for ceilings and walls, Burmese Teak is the most popular choice because of its grain and golden colour.
