If you’re looking for a great way to mask or hide your mechanical services and plumbing pipes in your ceiling, that also leaves them accessible should a problem arise, then why not consider a Drop Ceiling or Suspended Ceiling as they are also referred to as an alternative instead of covering them up with drywall. There are many types and sizes of textured acoustical ceiling tile available that can also offer a level of soundproofing as well as an additional layer of fireproofing and are by far more eye catching than a simple painted surface. If you are considering drop ceilings in your basement or commercial business in the Brantford area, contact one of our suspended ceiling specialists today. They will be pleased to offer professional advice, installation, and service.
Drop Ceilings and Suspended Ceilings are typically available in 24 inch square tiles or for a commercial business setting, they are 24 inches by 48 inches and cover twice the square feet per ceiling tile. In either case, the drop ceiling is held up by a hanging grid system throughout the main ceiling area and meets at the wall intersection with an L channel fastened to the wall itself by nails or screws. One of the most attractive features of a suspended or drop ceiling is that it allows future access to all mechanical services under the floor area of a home or under the roof area of a commercial establishment. Should a plumbing pipe leak, it will usually only damage a few easily replaceable ceiling tiles or ceiling panels and doesn’t really require calling a home improvement contractor to complete the ceiling tile replacement. When comparing the same problem with a ceiling covered in drywall by one of our listed Drywall Contractors, you will definitely pay more to have the drywall removed, replaced, taped and mudded, and then painted. The average cost of having a drop ceiling installed is usually comparable in price.
Drop Ceilings and Suspended Ceiling Products are readily available from a variety of brand name drop ceiling manufacturers however Armstrong Ceilings who manufacture all of the suspended ceiling components, seems to be more predominant as they offer an extensive product line of suspended and drop ceiling tiles available from a simple plain ceiling tile, to more elaborate textured ceiling tile and several architectural ceiling tile designs that boast ceiling tile inlays and embossed ceiling tile designs not to mention all of the trims and accessories. Drop ceilings offer a stylish finish to any home or business and although they typically come finished in white, they can be custom tinted or custom painted by one of our trusted Painting Contractors to match any room décor. The Trim Rails and T-Bar Ceiling can can also be painted or tinted as they are generally made from painted steel or aluminum and take paint easily. There are five main types of ceiling tile available and they consist of plain, patterned, smooth, coffered, textured, and some newer offerings include tin or stamped metal panels.
