Customer Questions & Answers

Is it possible to take tiles down without breaking something?

I have CeilingMax installed in my basement rec area. I need to access something above the tiles. Can I separate the "snapped" pieces without breaking them?
Asked by: Wirenut
I recently had cause to access the area above my Ceiling max system. The most difficult step was removing the snap in tee. It requires a sharp downward force however the tee was difficult to grip with the fingers. Using various metal tools damaged the edge of a few tiles. I would suggest it in the manufacturers interes to come up with a tool to carry out this step. Once the first tee is out of the groove things went reasonably smooth. All in all the ceiling system is easy to install, great for areas where head clearance is a problem and it looks great when it's finished.

I had a basement room with a low ceiling and could possibly have to access pipes above the ceiling at some future point. A typical suspended ceiling lost height, and a drywall ceiling meant installing access panels. Using Ceilingmax gave me the most height with the option to reach the pipes if that ever becomes necessary. The installation video was very helpful. There are drawbacks. The room I did was small, so one kit was sufficient, but this would be a very expensive option for a large room. Also, since the rails attach directly to the joists, if the joists are uneven the ceiling will be too, unless you shim. My joists were off, and that meant the tiles didn't lay flat unless I shimmed. Otherwise it's a good solution. A few of the rails were damaged by the shipper, and the manufacturer sent me an entire second kit promptly to replace any unusable parts at no charge, which I appreciated very much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cross Tees and product integrity could be improved Watched the online video. Looks really easy. Reality is that you need to be careful as the product is flimsy. Don't drive your mounting screws hard. Lightly snug them or you will deflect the material. When your cross piece encounters a joist when 16" centers interact with a 24" field you must trim off the crest of the cross pieces with tin snips for clearance. This slows you down. I was afraid that the acoustical tiles I bought would be too heavy for this system but they seem to be staying up. Not much is holding them up. I don't like the marketing 64 sq and 100 sq feet only. So much material is wasted. Cost is also excessive for plastic. I needed to center light fixtures on tiles which slowed down my planning phase. I don't believe that it will be easy to take the system apart as the snap pieces lock in at 90 degrees. I do not see how they can be removed without damage to the system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Use some vegetable oil... ease the job of snapping the long runners into place as you lock the tiles in. Run a piece of paper towel dipped in Mazola or Wesson or olive oil along the top edge of the vertical part of each runner just before you put it up. Be careful not to get the oil on the tiles with your fingertips - wipe your fingers well before touching surfaces of tiles. The runners will snap in fairly easily and can even be slid lengthways in the tracks. I say vegetable oil because I think WD-40 or other VOC lubricant might damage the PVC. I installed this product in my low-headroom basement in 2000 and feared the prospect of ever having to remove a tile. Did just that a couple days ago, and it was not hard but requires care not to damage friable tiles. I thought of the oil idea when putting tiles back up and it worked well - wish I had thought of it in 2000. I hope it will also make subsequent removal of tiles easier. (?)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product This system is one of the best DIY products out there, very easy to install and looks as good as any drop ceiling you'll see. My client was very very happy with the end results and that it was quick and virtually a mess free job. Fast shipping too. the dark spots in the photo are on the lens not the ceiling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't buy the cross - T's, buy extra runners instead. Excellent product giving maximum height. Even with VERY accurate measurement, and "by the book" installation, the cross-t's can leave an unsightly gap up to an eighth of an inch. On my second installation, I cut my own cross-t's out of extra runners and the resulting look is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product helped me a lot! Easy installation, it allowed me to install ceiling tiles in my basement without lowering of the ceiling (the typical hanging ceiling would have to be installed a few inches lower). Thank you for fast shipment!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Great! Uneven heights of the joists and walls that weren't square made the installation take a little longer, but the issues were not with the grid. We used very light weight vinyl tiles in the grid, which allowed a little more flexibility when installing the last few tiles. Was able to install recessed lighting between the joists, and the final result looks great. More expensive than conventional suspended ceiling, but we gained several inches in ceiling height, a real issue in a basement that's not full height.
