The ceiling is one of the most important structural elements of the building. There are no jokes here, we will not save on the quality of the ceiling. Good quality materials and solid workmanship are the priorities. How much does a ceiling cost? It all depends on its type.
Highly ribbed ceilings. What is it?
Block-ribbed ceilings are made from start to finish on the construction site. This type of ceiling is made without heavy equipment. This is probably why house designs with ceilings of this type are so popular. The block-ribbed floor is built with reinforcement ribs. Aerated concrete blocks are placed in the spaces between them. The whole is then filled with concrete mix.

According to specialists’ calculations, the following amounts influence the price of this ceiling: beams: approximately PLN 100/m, their number depends on the ceiling design, hollow bricks: from PLN 5.2 to PLN 10/piece (6-7 pieces are needed per m2), concrete mix : PLN 28 / m2.
What is a Trevia ceiling?

We will pay PLN 150/m2 for the reinforcement. Added to this is the concrete mortar and its pouring. The cost of a monolithic ceiling may be approximately PLN 300/m2.
Prefabricated ceiling. Characteristic
A prefabricated ceiling does not require much work. It also does not require full formwork. Professionals rate this type of ceiling as making construction work more efficient. To make the ceiling, you will need prefabricated slabs, which, depending on the project, may be of different types. The boards are placed with a crane. The next stage is formwork of the ring. Then it is reinforced and poured with concrete.
Prefabricated ceilings. Costs
The cost of a prefabricated ceiling ranges from PLN 150 to PLN 250/m2 depending on the type of prefabricated element selected. To this should be added the costs of renting a crane (PLN 190-250 / h) and labor costs, which are small, approximately 3 hours.
