    Hi Guys,

    Just want to ask if using metal furring and hardiflex board as ceiling inside the house is cheaper than using good lumber and plywood?

    long term mas mura sha.

    ung mag-iinstall ng furring mo dapat iskuwalado at tama sa mga sides ng hardiflex.

    tapos ung lighting fixtures mo kung mabigat dapat abangan mo ng furring para meron kakapitan.

    kung ceiling fan mas lalo, kasi nadudurog ng vibration ang hardiflex, katagalan ung butas mo sa hardiflex unti-unti un lalaki.

    I would definitely recommend Hardiflex with metal furring over the lumber and plywood as they are fire ratardant, more durable (specially if installed correctly and reinforced), water resistant and termite free! It has also been widely used in the commercial industry.
