Is the popcorn falling off of your exterior ceiling?  Who ever came up with popcorn on outside ceilings anyway?  Don't worry we can fix it for good.  Vinyl ceilings are nice looking and easy to maintain.  You can hose them down when they're dirty and they can be installed right over your current drywall ceiling.

There are two basic types of ceilings we install.  A regular solid  type and a beaded type.  The beaded is the nicest looking of the two.  Of course that makes it the most expensive of the two.   It has a country style look to it and resembles bead board.   The pictures to the right and below are beaded.  In this particular job we installed it vertically around the ceiling as well.  This is usually done to cover up a wood beam.

When installing a vinyl ceiling there are a couple of things to take into account.  First, the ceiling needs to be installed to something solid.  It can't just be nailed into the drywall, it won't hold.  Providing the trusses are running the right way, we can nail right through the drywall into them.  If we can't nail to the trusses then we need to install stringer which is typically 1"X3" pieces of wood 8' long.  We would space them 24" apart and attach the new vinyl ceiling to them.  We could determine which way we would do the install before any work begins.

Also, the material comes in 12' lengths.  This means if your ceiling is over 12' wide both ways then we would have to put a seem in the ceiling.   An example of this is shown below.

Ceiling material is available in the same colors as soffit.  White and Brown are the most common.
