Q- How long does it take to get my ceiling installed?
A- Once we are given the order it takes less than 2 weeks for us to get started.
Q- What should my tin ceiling be painted with?
A- A tin ceiling can be painted with any non-water based paint, any color including clear coat. If you selected a brass, copper, or chrome plated ceiling no coating is required.
Q- Do you travel to our area to do an installation?
A- We travel within a 150-mile radius of our shop in Brooklyn , N.Y. but if the project is appropriate we can travel further. Please contact us for further information about our territory.
Q- We need accessibility to the area above our tin ceiling, is that possible?
A- Yes, we can create access panels in a nailed up ceiling or we can install a suspended or snap up tin ceiling that has full accessibility.
Q- Can you repair a tin ceiling?
A- Yes, most times once the ceiling is painted you cannot detect the repair and if we don't carry your patterns we locate them for you from other manufacturers.
Q- Can you create a new tin ceiling to match an existing room or replace a badly damaged tin ceiling?
A- Yes this is our specialty whether it's our products or another manufacturer's product, we can provide in most cases exactly the same products.
Q- Can you install the tin ceiling directly to our plaster or sheetrock ceiling?
A- No, we must have a wood nailing base around the perimeter of each sheet and where the cornice meets the ceiling.
Q- Does the tin ceiling have the same fire protection as sheetrock?
A- No, it does not. If you need fire protection sheetrock should be installed on top of the tin ceiling.
