Your Ceiling Contractors questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does it cost to install a ceiling?

Ceiling installation costs $2 to $20 per square foot on average, depending on the ceiling type and material. A 12'x12' ceiling costs $290 to $2,900 installed.

What is the easiest ceiling to install?

The easiest type of ceiling to install is a drop ceiling. Flat, standard drywall is the cheapest ceiling type, but drywall is heavier, messier, and harder to install than drop ceiling panels.

How long does it take to install or replace a ceiling?

A ceiling takes 1 to 3 days to install or replace, depending on the type. Drop ceilings take less time to install than other types. If you will be doing any demolition or vaulting, the project will take longer than average.

How long do ceilings last?

A standard drywall ceiling lasts 30 to 75 years if you take care of it. However, you might need to repair or replace it if you notice any of the following:

  • Cracks
  • Bubbling
  • Water damage
  • Sagging
  • Mold

Do you need a permit to install a ceiling?

Most building projects require a permit, especially when it involves structural changes, electrical work, or plumbing work. Always check local code regulations before starting a major project. Many contractors will pull the necessary permits for you.

Can you drywall over a popcorn or plaster ceiling?

Yes, you can drywall over a popcorn or plaster ceiling. This technique will lower your ceiling by about an inch but save you time and money compared to replacing the ceiling or removing popcorn. Other options for covering an old ceiling include wood planks or decorative tiles made of metal or PVC.

Jose did an amazing job installing our frameless glass shower door. I had another contractor tell me it would be too difficult and I should return it, but Jose managed it in an afternoon and it looks perfect! He is very professional and punctual too.
