One of the best ways to give any space a renewed appearance and old world charm is to install a silver or copper tin ceiling. In addition to adding beauty, Tin Ceiling Installation in Long Island NY can also help improve a home’s value and make it easier to sell by setting it apart from other houses that may be on the market. Here is what is involved with the installation of tin ceiling products, and why it is a project best left to a professional.
Before the ceiling can be installed, it is crucial to properly prepare the surface for installation of the tin panel to ensure a secure bond. Any drop ceilings will need to be removed, and plaster and drywall surfaces will need to be cleaned. Also, it is important to remove all light fixtures so that the tin can be installed around their openings and they can be reinstalled easily after the tin is set in place.
Tin Panel Installation
Once the surface is prepared, the next step is to install the panels. A contractor will use a glue adhesive to secure the tile to the ceiling, and then secure it in place with small pin head nails that will prevent movement without being visible. The pieces of tin will be cut with shears, which can be dangerous to use and leave the edges of tin tile extremely sharp and dangerous to handle.
After all of the pieces are in place, the next step is to install the edging around the ceiling, which will give the tin a finished look. The edging is attached like the tile panels but will need to be cut with a miter box to ensure a clean edge in the corners of a room. The edging material also helps to hide any rough edges, which can help alleviate the stress associated with a bad cut.
