Did you hire a professional for this project?: No
Tips: Make sure to measure for center (both ways) and drop caulk lines to make sure starter rows are straight and square. Keep a small bucket with rag and water to clean any excess glue (as u go) that might squeeze out.. it’s water based cleans off easily but if you let it dry on tiles ..it will be much harder to remove., take your time with each tile ., it will be well worth it.
Describe Your Project: The ceiling was a nightmare, my house was built when ceilings put up with glue and nails (no drywall screws). Well over time the glue dries up and nails can’t hold weight alone. So they sag and in some spots it was 4 inches down and cracked all the way across. I came up with the plan to run 1x3x8ft strips across the ceiling and draw the ceiling back up so it would not collapse. I used long drywall screws to screw into bottom of wood ceiling joists., it worked. Then I covered the whole ceiling with 15/32 plywood (attached to ceiling strips I put up) to have a flat and perfectly straight substrate to lay ceiling tiles on. I really didn’t want to do this project and tried to hire 3 drywall contractors to install a new drywall ceiling. All no shows., to small for then to bother with., so after a year of waking up to wood slats on the ceiling., I found this company on the internet and said I can do this! I’m so glad I did.. I saved I’m guessing about 1500.00 and it’s so much nicer than a boring drywall ceiling..
Would You Recommend This Project To A Friend And Why?: I would highly recommend it,, the product was easy to work with and the service and selection was excellent.. it might seem daunting at first, but step by step it can be done., I’m 64 and my wife is 67., and we did it! And we absolutely love looking at it. It’s stunning.
