Your Drop Ceiling Installation questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does a drop ceiling cost?

Drop ceilings cost $4 to $20 per square foot installed on average, or $400 to $4,000 for a 100 to 200 square foot ceiling. During the installation process, drop ceiling installers mount the grid framework, which holds removable tiles that hide wiring, plumbing, and ductwork. Then they install the tiles, which come in various materials, colors, and patterns.

What is a drop ceiling?

Drop ceilings, also called suspended ceilings or acoustic ceiling tiles, are made of a metal grid framework which supports panels or tiles. These easily removable tiles provide insulation, sound suppression, and cover wiring and ductwork. Modern acoustic tiles come in many colors and patterns, including a coffered ceiling appearance.

Can you paint drop ceiling tiles?

Yes, you can paint drop ceiling tiles, but it may void the warranty and cause tile sagging. Painting may also affect the tiles' fire resistance and sound suppression. Remember the following tips if you decide to paint your tiles:

  • Use water-based flat latex paint formulated for sound absorption.
  • Use a primer and spray paint for metal tiles.
  • Prep plastic and wood tiles with sandpaper and an oil-based primer, then paint with oil or latex paint.

Are drop ceilings or drywall ceilings cheaper?

Drywall ceilings cost $2 to $4 per square foot installed, so they are typically cheaper than drop ceilings. However, drywall is heavier, messier, and harder to install than drop ceiling panels. The easiest and fastest type of ceiling to install is a drop ceiling.

What are drop ceiling tiles made of?

Drop ceiling tiles are made of many different materials, including:

  • White fiberboard
  • Colored fiberboard
  • Plastic
  • Metal
  • Wood tiles

How long does it take to install a drop ceiling?

A professional drop ceiling installer spends 2 to 3 days building the framework and installing tiles. Complex installations that require pipework, ductwork, or electrical modifications take longer than average.

How much clearance do I need for a drop ceiling?

You need at least a 3” clearance between the drop ceiling framework and the rafters. Pipes, ductwork, and lighting may require more space. Building codes that mandate a minimum ceiling height of 7' may restrict the drop height, especially in basements.

  • How long have you been installing drop ceilings?
  • Are you licensed, bonded, and insured?
  • What material would you recommend for my ceiling?
  • Do you charge by square footage or per hour?
