I need to repair a ceiling, can you help?
Yes, we stock a wide range of ceiling tiles and grid components that can be used to repair an existing suspended ceiling. If you can send us a couple of photos of the ceiling (email to : firstname.lastname@example.org or text to 07734 157320) we can normally match components from stock. We can also carry-out insurance repairs to ceilings damaged by flood or impact.
Can I paint a suspended ceiling?
Yes, you can but it will require a surprisingly large amount of paint and several coats. It will also seal all the perforations in the surface of the tile and reduce it's acoustic properties. You may find it cheaper and quicker to replace the tiles with new ones. See our budget tile ranges for suitable tiles.
My tiles are lifting with the wind when the external door is open. How do I stop this?
Our normal advice is to fit a louvre tile to ventilate above the ceiling and equalise the pressures above and below to prevent uplift. You can also clip the tiles in place using our Universal Hold-down clips.
