Re: Ceiling Board


Denshield works good. The screws don't dimple very nice though. Can always use durock and skim coat it too.

I have used durabond without any issues.

You could also use Densglass type exterior rated gypsum sheeting. We used it as the ceiling in a covered patio. We skimmed it with durabond and then painted it. Turned out good.

Re: Ceiling Board


I was wondering about skimming cement board with 20min. I rarely have durabond around.
Good call on Denshield too. I use it from time to time but never for tileless areas probably needs a skim coat to hold paint.

Thanks Andrew

Re: Ceiling Board


What's the concern with gypsum? Prime/seal, done.

Re: Ceiling Board


The ceiling is a little low. And although I have a fan immediately outside of the shower I'm just a little concerned. National Gypsum bored the XP variety says it's okay and I would normally use it if I had at least eight foot ceilings but I'm below eight foot.

For what it's worth...

I have basement shower enclosure, 4' wide Lowe's type, in a bath with a 6' 11" ceiling (since I raised the floor to level it). I have a handheld shower head that's 4" away from the ceiling (since I'm tall). Zero issues, going on 9 years. Dry as a bone. (And the ceiling is flat paint, if you can believe it.)

Yup. I now recall going back and forth on whether to paint the ceiling with some enamel (eggshell or semi), but I wanted to see what happens with flat. Then again, I'm the only one that uses that shower. If it was high use, maybe a paint with some sheen would be better.

A good prime over any board before color is a must . IMO .
