      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Michael. The 1728BL tiles are lay in. They will lay flush with the grid and do not have a tegular edge. If you need a tegular edge for 15/16 inch size grid, you can order our Fine Fissured 1732BL.

          The ceiling tiles look great. The only thing i noticed was some of them have a lighter coating or maybe faded look compared to one another. I tried using a lightly dampened rag after vacuuming them thinking maybe it was dust. It didnt help as much as i had hoped. But you cant tell unless certain lights are on.

          it is easy to get decent results as an amateur the package had all the needed parts. I would recommend a small can of touch up paint as it seems inevitable to get a few nicks that show up on the black. It made for a comfortable,appealing space.
          2 basement offices both came out well.

          UPDATE ON (RE)PAINTING TILES BLACK
          My previous review suggested cans of spray paint to repaint the black or paint the white black. On a large scale spray cans turned out to be a bad idea, they spray uneven, are absorbed uneven and some brands flat just aren’t very flat. Without a professional sprayer, I ended up rolling with a 3/8” roller. Home Depot sells Glidden Premium factory premixed flat black. It is actually much blacker than the tiles factory paint, and the Glidden base is very flat on their dark colors, I believe it’s their base 3, and the price at Home Depot is a bargain! The tiles will soak up much more paint than you would guess so buy twice as much. Also needs at least two coats, but looks so much better than factory. See before & after pics attached. The before shows tile dust covering the grid just from dropping them in place.

            YOU can make them great
            As others have written, the black paint job is pathetic. It will be contaminated by dust from the ends and back by the time you have them installed. If you try to clean them with a moist cloth they will only streak. Not to mention the paint job isn’t that great as far as adhesion or even black color. Now the great news: buy many cans of Flat Black spray paint. Spray each tile completely and let dry 24 hours because it will be absorbed. Handle wearing plastic gloves when installing. You will have a beautiful uniform ceiling for your home or theater which is slightly blacker than the Armstrong black with absolutely no gloss. Now here’s the kicker.... since you are going to be painting the tiles anyway, you don’t have to stick with these. There are many other more decorative tiles that happen to be white. Pick out the one you like and paint it. Armstrong says, by the way, painting an acoustical tile has minimal effect on the sound properties. I wish I had known this because there are other more attractive tiles I would have liked for my theater however are white and I did not know I was going to have to remove and repaint the black ones after installation anyhow. In the photo the clean left tile is freshly painted andthe surface is tougher than factory. The dirty right tile shows the fainter black and how the tile looks after getting dust from sides and rear on the factory paint. The dust will mess upyour new paint job too, so be careful.

              We ordered 12 cases for our basement renovation and 29 pieces were damaged. They break to easy in shipping on the corners. Once broken or scuffed they turn WHITE.

              Low Durability Coating
              Tiles were delivered with damage to outside boxes. Upon opening, nearly every tile was slightly damaged. Even a small shift in transit resulted in damage to the black coating on the tiles. This coating is extremely thin and, through my normal handling and install, the coating chipped and scuffed further. Lots of touchup work needed. Overall product is disappointing and I would not recommend it.

                Product was damaged when I opened the box. Customer Service was a joke and would not replace broken product.
