While it’s easy to ignore replacing your ceiling as you decorate your home, designers and decorators see ceilings as an opportunity to beautify the look of a space. A well-styled ceiling can give as a design element in itself, complementing wall colours or even acting as a focal point within the space. When it’s time to replacing your ceiling, consider upgrading to a design that meets your home style.
Let’s discuss some factors below before replacing your ceiling:
First and foremost, repair any essential issues, such as leaks or electrical problems. Make sure to test for mold and mildew if any moisture has permeated the ceiling. If mold is exist, use the mold remediated professionally. For best results with surface mount products, make sure the existing ceiling surface is stable and flat. Once the prep work is complete, the replacing begins.

3. Upgrading a Drop Ceiling
For an easy update, pop old tiles out of the ceiling grid and replace them with new ones. If your grid holds 24″ x 48″ tiles, try a “scored” product that’s designed to look like 24″ x 24″ panels. With this style, you won’t need to spend for additional cross tees – just pop out the old ceilings and place them in the new.
If you want an updated drop ceiling with sag, mold, mildew resistance, AND acoustical properties to reduce noise, you can select from a collection of designs, sizes, and materials – just pop out the old ceiling tiles and replace them with the brand new.
