I have an old house that came with stained wooden planks for the lower bathroom shower ceiling. I recently tore down the ceiling in order to fix a drain leakage in the shower above. Now im looking to redo (reinstall) the ceiling using brand new wooden planks.
I got thin aromatic cedar plans from home-depot. They came in a box and they inter-lock with each other. After the ceiling planks are all installed i planned on doing additional caulking and then painting it with paint + gloss coating (to further prevent moisture from entering thru).
Link to the cedar slats im planning to use.
Does anybody see any outstanding or possible future issues with this nearly complete DIY project (i still need to sand this down and paint it)?
Also, I will probably add an extra layer of gloss paint for water/moisture protection. Will this cause any issues, like trapping undesirable moisture above the wooden planks?
Thank you for reading. All feedback is welcome!
I have installed the cedar plans (despite them being very thin and warped in some places). I used nails, liquid nails, and finished with latex/silicone caulking along all the joints.
