Introduction to our Products used on Ceilings and Eve Ceilings

Painting Ceilings may not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, a well-painted ceiling can make a significant difference to the overall aesthetic of a room. Ceiling paint can brighten your space, hide imperfections, and add a final aesthetic touch to your decor. Ceilings should almost always be painted in a Matt Acrylic Paint. The reason for this is that:

  1. Ceilings don’t receive much wear and tear, so a glossy, durable paint is not always necessary.

  2. Matt Paint hides imperfections in older properties with architectural blemishes in the ceiling.

  3. Matt Paint also dries more evenly than most other types of paint.

  4. Satin Sheen is recommended for bathroom or kitchen ceilings (or a room with higher humidity) since Satin Sheen has higher moisture resistance and sometimes holds up better, however in Extreme cases of damp or moisture that tend to grow Fungi, Classic Aquacide™ must be used.


As far as ceiling colour, it is entirely up to you which colour you use for your ceilings. Most property-owners prefer using white or ivory paint for their ceilings, but using a colour for the ceiling can make a nice statement if done correctly.

In somer cases darker co;ours are required to eliminte reflection of light such as theters, home theatres etc.

Energy Saving

Highly Reflective Ceilings – Light Reflectance of 83% or greater – makes these lighting systems, especially indirect lighting more effective, while further reducing energy costs and consumption by as much as 20%.

The ceiling isn't the first place most facility managers look for energy savings, but it can play a role in making a space more energy efficient. A ceiling with a high light reflectance will bounce a higher percentage of the light that strikes it back into the space below. That's important whether the light source is a fixture or the sun. Either way, a more light-reflective ceiling can help reduce the amount of electricity used to illuminate a space. Our Products are a key element of energy conservation.


Priming is a critical step in the ceiling painting process. It prepares the surface by creating a smooth, even base for the paint to adhere to. Priming also helps hide imperfections, stains, and discolorations on the ceiling. Depending on the condition of the ceiling and the type of paint used, a primer with stain-blocking properties may be needed.

Knotty Pine and Timber

Knotty Pine and Timber Ceilings that are painted for the first time must be sanded propery, washed with sugar soap and left to dry. A proper coat of Classic Universal Undercoat™ must be applied to hide knots and oil stains. A second coat should be applied if necessary, thereafter two coats of Matt Acrylic or Satin Sheen should be applied. Covering a Knotty Pine or Timber Ceiling with Varnish is explianed in the Timer Section on our Home Page.
