Installing Custom Drywall Ceilings

Are you interested in an incredible air of appeal among your everyday drywall? Then you may want to learn about installing the custom ceiling. These ceilings provide flexibility of design, excellentInstalled Custom Drywall Ceiling transition options, and support for lighting. Though they aren't set among typical stick framing -- along with stud framing comes the limitations of straightness, and the burdens of weight. A lot of cut making at the least.

The drywall ceilings are available as a system (and which varies per manufacturer, along with rated lighting). Make the rounded shapes, waves and free-flowing contours, with the use of high-strength-by-weight steel frames.

For the install, supporting cross tee's -- on what will be the parallels -- are snapped in prefab tee splices, within the frame sections at the ends, the members that provide shape for the ceiling.

The unit is assembled and suspended from above with a minimum of 12 gauge hangar wire, having channel mold at the side. Drywall is fastened in the form of flex panels onto the framing (either parallel or at right angles). Flexible fascia material then is attached around the perimeter to finish off the edges. The installer tapes and finshes the panels. Generally no metal fabricating or cutting needs to be done onsite.
