Choosing the Right Ceiling Tiles

     The standard paper tiles which make up the dropped ceiling, as seen on the right, are prone to mold and sagging. When a tile sags in the middle, it lifts the corners of the tile, creating an unattractive effect.

   

     Instead of the standard "L" channel against the wall for the grid and tiles to sit on, we use a plastic crown molding. Not only does this makes for a rich and sophisticated transition from wall to ceiling, but the plastic prevents mold from forming on it. Because only organic materials can grow mold, all of our products are made of inorganic materials.    photo
