I have a patio ceiling that is pretty much completely protected from the elements. Typical Arizona stucco house, patio is inset 1 ft in and 2 ft up from edge of roof.

The current ceiling is, as best I can tell, drywalled and painted. The house is 5 years old and the paint is flaking an bubbling in places - this may be due in part to hosing it down when it gets particularly dirty 8-)
I am looking to refinish it and someone had mentioned that I should consider T1-11 siding to cover it.
My question is has anyone heard of this being done and are there any alternatives that I might use. (Thinking along the lines of a plastic coating).
Whatever is used I would like to paint the ceiling to match the house.

I have seen it done and it look alright and at least you will not have to worry about the tape joints falling apart and you can paint it any color you like.
Just prime it with an exterior latex stain blocking primer and finish with a exterior satin latex so you can keep it clean.
