Based on my experience in St. Petersburg (as the installer of suspended ceilings), I can say that the installation of stretch fabrics is becoming increasingly popular. This is understandable because of suspended ceilings significant advantages compared with other types of ceiling repairs. To them I shall not dwell, and talk about all the intricacies of installation of stretch ceilings. You invest in the repair of their money, someone more, someone less in any case you do not want to start all over again (again, to invest). We need to start with the preparation of the old ceiling.
Any company will tell you that anything not necessary, but it is not. Inspect the old ceiling, to be cleared it from the pieces of a loose paint, plaster. This is necessary so that they would not have fallen after some time on the canvas stretched ceiling. Then you need to make room for the installation, namely, to maintain access to the walls and lighting. Frequently asked question – what to do before a suspended ceiling or wallpaper glue? It is better to first establish a ceiling. Why? The answer to the question next. It all depends on what the room walls. Dust from drilling wall is deposited on the wallpaper if the walls of red brick, then wash the dust is very difficult.
Flowers, easily breakable objects better to endure. Now about the installation. – Partitioning the level of the new ceiling. – The walls mounted prints. – Established structures under the lights. – Stretched canvas. – Mounted lighting equipment, ventilation hoods. – It injects decorative cap. The level of tension ceiling is marked with a special laser tool. Frames fixed every 15-20 inches, so wiring passing into the walls should be marked, otherwise there is a chance to kill her. Lighting is better to collect, but without the fragile parts. Decorative cap looks good on the quality lined the walls, otherwise better stick ceiling moldings, and from the tape to refuse.
