How much does it cost to install a drop ceiling?

The cost to install depends on a number of things: products used, including their performance features and edge detail, design of the space and products, the grid, and if this is a DIY or using our installation services. Connect with our install team for a quote in just 5 minutes.

What is the easiest ceiling to install?

The easiest ceilings to install are surface mount ceilings. Some examples of those are 12” x 12” surface mount ceiling tiles that pair with our EASY UP track and clips, or our WOODHAVEN planks over a drop ceiling. The easiest ceiling projects require you to be familiar with simple tools like a hammer, tape measure, and saw.

What can I put on my ceiling instead of drywall?

There are a few different options for your ceiling. Some of the most popular choices are suspended ceilings (drop ceilings) or surface mount ceilings. Learn more about the difference between drop ceilings and drywall ceilings.

Can I install a drop ceiling myself?

Yes. For most advanced DIY-ers installing a drop ceiling is something that can be done quickly. Some of our products require better technical skills, more time planning and measuring, and more tools, like metal shears. And if you find that you aren't ready for this project, be sure to connect with our certified installation team!

How do I redo my ceiling?

When redoing a ceiling, there are a few questions that need answered before the project can get started.
If you decide to install a drop ceiling, read our how-to install drop ceilings guide. If you have additional questions, please contact our customer support team.

What is the cheapest way to redo a ceiling?

The cheapest way to redo a ceiling is drywall. The cost of material for drywall is less than that of a drop ceiling in most instances. However, when adding in labor and maintenance, a drywall ceiling and drop ceiling costs are about the same.

What kind of ceiling is best?

The best ceilings are drop ceilings because they can help absorb sound within a space, help block sound from entering or leaving the space, increase light reflectance, and even can impact air quality. Shop all of the different ceiling collections we have to offer.
