  • A good way to save ceiling height
  • January 28, 2014
  • Verified Purchase & Recommended Product

The product allowed me to put a ceiling in a basement with a height of 6'3" withought losing much height. The system only needs 3/4 ". We had to reapply a few of the hangers due to uneven joists. The system is expensive for what you get, but it's the only product out there that allows you to hang ceiling tiles with only a small sacrifice in space. I like the final result we got with PVC ceiling tiles. The support grid worked as promised and required a low skill level to install. we had to cut notches in one faulty hanger strip. Shett metal snips worked well.

  • The ceiling system met all my requirements

Ceilingmax is an excellent product that installed as directed and looks very nice. I am not sure I could have installed it entirely by myself although I did 90 percent of the work without my trusty assistant (my wife). Not that I plan to access the ceiling again, it is good to know that I can remove the tee's and tiles to gain access if necessary.

Pros Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Stylish, Straight, Good Shape, Light Weight, maintains ceiling height

  • Not THAT easy to install.
  • April 22, 2014

Maybe in new construction this product would be good, but in my older home; I couldn't make it work. This product is not very forgiving it you are off on any measurements. So measure three times, and be very exact when installing.

I like the way this looks. It does seem to be a little too involved to get access to space above but the upside is that you get a higher ceiling than standard suspended ceiling approach and that is pretty important.

  • Just what I needed

For a "drop" ceiling without the drop, as I needed in my basement, this was the ideal solution. The vinyl top rails fasten directly to your ceiling joists, and then the tiles are held up with a T rail that is pushed into the mounted top rail, and stays. If you need to remove a tile later, with some work you can pull down the T rail. The vinyl is fairly flexible, so it is sometimes hard to press the T rail in-- it is best when you can reach above the top rail and push from both sides. For that reason, and because the tiles must be slid into place, you absolutely must work progressively, from one side to the other. The cross-bars are barely held in place, so the distance between the top rails should be carefully measured. Wear protective gear when you score and snap the tiles! I am very happy with the way it turned out.

Pros Easy to Work With, Great Value, Economical, great solution Cons flimsy

This product is exactly what I needed. Moved into a house with a big basement that needed some finishing although it looked like was ready for a ceiling. Not a drop ceieling but something else. Since I am not a carpenter I saw this product and tried it. it easy to use. bi didn't even have to use a drill. I used a driver with Phillips instead and did not drive them into the drywall. Instead I put the screws in 2 x 4w which worked perfectly without a problem. I would say to make sure you measure and keep the rails straight. it looks flimsy but once you have the parts in place seems very sturdy. it holds 2 4 ceiling tiles with no problem.

Pros Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Great Value

  • Best cover up ever.
  • December 08, 2015
  • Verified Purchase & Recommended Product

Very easy to use, this was the second time I have used this product. First time was a basement ceiling, this time was to cover up an ugly bathroom ceiling. It is very easy to install, even for a person working on their own. Mounts directly to the existing ceiling or unfinished joists so there is minimal loss of height.

Bought this to put a more finished look on my basement. Worked like a charm. Took a while to get it figured out but once I had it down I was able to put up the rest of the system in a day or 2. Took my time because I wanted it to look good as we will be using the basement as a rec room now.
