Perfect for both commercial and residential applications, these uDecor Tiles are made from thick .03" vinyl plastic. Their lightweight yet durable construction make these tiles easy to install. Waterproof, these tiles are washable and won't stain due to humidity or mildew. A perfect choice for anyone wanting to add that designer touch at an amazing price.

Designed to fit all standard 15/16" - 1" T-Bar Ceiling Systems. If you have a 2'x4' grid, our easy to install grid dividers easily convert your system to fit.

Lightweight
Our uDecor tiles are extremely lightweight meaning less strain and stress during installation. Made out of durable pvc vinyl, these tiles are perfect for even the tallest of ceilings.

Easy to Install
Unlike traditional mineral fiber tiles, these tiles are flexible which makes installation a breeze. No more worrying about breaking or chipping tiles during installation. These tiles are just simple, clean, and easy. Insert them in a grid alone or beneath an existing tile. Install directly to your ceiling by overlapping the tile edges and using Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive.

Waterproof
Say goodbye to those nasty water stains or bowed ceiling tiles that are all too common in traditional ceiling products. uDecor tiles are virtually impervious to water and mildew giving you peace of mind knowing that your tiles will look great year round.

Durable
Our uDecor tiles are durable. Made out of high quality pvc, these tiles are sure to stand the test of time.

Easy to Clean
With water and a quick scrub, your tiles will maintain their new and fresh look for years to come. Unlike traditional tiles, these tiles can be cleaned thus increasing their appeal and longevity.

Highlights:
The Cathedral tile is a beautiful style that is suited for both Direct Mount or Grid application. The 12 inch pattern makes it well suited for both small and large spaces.

Things to Consider:
If installing in a ceiling grid, make your grid look as elegant as your tiles by painting your grid or using Our Designer Collection Grid Strips. If you are planning to direct mount these to your ceiling, you will love the way that they overlap. No seams to conceal, so there is no need to buy grid strips.

For direct mount applications, save a trip to the store by purchasing our Red Devil brand Direct Mount Adhesive. If you would prefer to pick up something locally, PL Premium Advanced (Loctite brand) works great.

Since your ceiling will more than likely have partial tiles at the perimeter, you will have to cut your tiles to size for those areas. This can create a gap running into the wall with some styles. Since the Cathedral style has a very minimal projection, many of our customers do not find the need for a border tile. Should you decide you would prefer one, our Designer Border Tile are the perfect remedy.

CEILING TILE CERTIFICATIONS

RETURNS

At ProCeilingTiles.com, we know that projects take a while, and sometimes plans change. That's why, in most cases, we give our customers a 90 day grace period to return products. The products must be unused/new and in their original boxes.

We are unable to replace items have been modified or installed, so please review all the contents of your shipment for damage and to verify that the items received are correct. Damaged items, or items shipped in error, that are not modified will be replaced promptly.

Refund Amount
When returning products to ProCeilingTiles.com the customer is responsible for the shipping cost back to us, and the Actual Shipping cost that we incured while sending you the product. Your refund equation is: (Price for Product + Tax) - (Actual shipping cost) = Your Refund

Example: You paid a total of $ 100 for products from ProCeilingTiles.com. You had used a coupon for free shipping when placing your order. Since shipping isn't truly free for us, the original actual shipping amount is deducted from your refund. So, if actual shipping cost was $ 8.00 (hypothetical cost) and you returned all of the products, you'd receive a refund amount of $ 92.00. If you had paid any sales tax when placing your order (CA and KY residents only) that would also be refunded in full.

Unqualified Products
Custom products do not qualify for a refund if returned. Custom products include, but are not limited to, the Imagination Series and Custom Tile categories.

Partial Returns of Items with Quantity Discounts
In the event that a ProCeilingTiles.com order qualified for and received a quantity discount, special consideration must be taken when accepting a partial return of the specific product that qualified for the quantity discount. If a customer's request to return a specific amount of product breaks the initial quantity required to qualify for a discount, it is possible that the customer will not receive a refund for the returned items to ProCeilingTiles.com. This is because we have extended a generous discount for a bulk buy, which may no longer applicable if a portion of the product is returned.

A refund involving an order that included a quantity discount can be examined in the following example:
Bill purchased 400 of a particular ceiling tile which cost $ 4.25 per tile (a $ 0.74/tile discount when purchasing 400 or more). His order also qualified for free shipping and he was not subject to sales tax. The order total was $ 1700.00.

After Bill finished his project, he decided that he did not need 30 of his tiles, and he wishes to return them. We must treat Bill's order as if he originally purchased 370 ceiling tiles, which means he would have not qualified for the $ 0.74 per tile quantity discount. If Bill had only purchased 370 tiles, the tiles would have cost $ 4.99 per tile and his order total would have been $ 1846.30.

In this particular case, Bill's new order total ($ 1,846.30) would actually be more than what he originally paid ($ 1,700.00). While we wouldn't charge Bill the difference when returning the tiles, we also would not be able to provide any refund. It would be better for Bill to keep the tiles and save on the return shipping.

When and how will a customer be refunded?
If products are returned within 90 days of the purchase, the customer's credit card will be refunded electronically. If products are returned toward the end of the 90 day period, and the refund does not take effect within 90 days of the purchase date, the refund will be issued by check and sent by USPS. Returns may take up to 2 weeks to be processed.

Packaging Items for their Return
Please be careful when packaging items for returns. You will be responsible for damage incured during shipping, so please package the items accordingly. Retain the paper work that the shipping company gives you, especially the tracking number. Remember, you will be responsible for the items until we receive them.

How To Install Drop In Ceiling Tiles

  • Ceiling Tiles
  • Tape Measure
  • Pencil / Wax Pencil
  • Straight edge
  • Scissors, razor knife, or Ceiling Tile Aviation Snips
  • Gloves
  • Eye Protection

ProLite Series Only-
Insulation Above The Tiles
Our ProLite Series of tiles are our most popular tiles due to their flexibility, color options, and price point. Due to the tiles' thin construction, regular fiberglass insulation is too heavy to lay on top of the tiles. If your space requires insulation above the tiles you have a few options:

Option 1
Our SoniGuard insulation is specifically built and designed to work above our ProLite Series and can be purchased from our website.

Option 2
If your tile design is flat on the back, you can slide these tiles into place under your existing tiles, leaving the existing tiles to bear the weight of your insulation.

Option 3
You can place small furring strips that lay across the top of the grid to use as support for insulation. 1x1 or 1x2 wood strips provide enough support for insulation.

Option 4
You can push your existing tiles up out of place and turn them slightly to rest on top of the grid system. This would allow the insulation to rest on top of these tiles.

Option 5
You can secure the insulation to the "real ceiling" of your space, leaving the tops of the tiles clear of any need to support weight.

All Tiles

Installing
Once you have determined how you tiles will be installed (empty grid, under existing tiles, existing tiles pushed up) it's time to get started. Place all of the full sized tiles first, leaving the border and partial tiles for last. Having all the full sized tiles in place will push the grid into its natural position. If you cut and install border and partial tiles first, you may find that they are the wrong size once all the other tiles are in place.

Border / Partial Tiles
Use a tape measure or straightedge to measure the size your tiles need to be. Transfer those measurements to the back side of the tile with a pencil or grease pencil.

Cutting Tiles
Our ProLite Series is very easy to cut with regular household scissors. Follow your lines for a nice neat finish. You can also use a razor knife if needed.

Lighting
Can Lights / Recessed Lights
In many homes grid mounted lights are very popular. You should choose a tile design that has a large enough flat area for the light bezel to lay flush once installed. You should also choose lights that have grid mounting brackets so that the weight of the light is supported by the grid system and not the tile.

Place your light fixture and tile in the grid system. Adjust the light to its final position and mark this on the backside of your tile. Use the appropriate size template to mark the hole in the tile. Many times the light bezel or a roll of tape will be close to the correct size. Use scissors or a razor knife to cut the opening.

Caution
We do not recommend can light fixtures that are not designed for direct contact with insulation nor do we recommend using halogen lighting. Unshielded fixtures, especially those using halogen lighting represent a risk of fire or melting the tiles.

High Temperature Areas
Our ProLite Series tiles are designed not to be affected by temperatures up to 120F. In some cases there may be localized ceiling and tile temperatures that exceed the tiles designed operating temperature. This can happen around heat registers, above stoves and ovens, around high temperature lighting, and in environments that intentionally have higher than normal temperatures, like heat spas, and Hot Yoga/Bikram studios. Contact us if your space may be subjected to any of these conditions.

Decorative Grid Strips / Grid Tape
These self adhesive strips/tape are designed to cover up the ceiling grid. Each strip is 2 feet long with an attractive embossed pattern and the grid tape is sold in 100 foot long rolls.

The adhesive on the back is to aid with installation, and IS NOT a permanent adhesive. Small dabs of tile adhesive should be applied to the back of the strips or tape. A small dab at each end, and 2 dabs spaced equally in the middle of the strip are adequate to permanently secure the strip to the ceiling. The ceiling grid tape should have a small dab of adhesive applied every 6 inches. The adhesive backing will allow for the strip to stick to the ceiling long enough for the tile adhesive to cure. Failure to use tile adhesive may result in the failure of the strips or tape to adhere to the ceiling.

Approximately 1 Tube of adhesive per 125 strips (250 linear feet) is needed. We recommend Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive (available here) or Loctite Power Grab All Purpose Adhesive (available locally in most big box stores).

Make sure your grid system is clean before starting application. Rubbing alcohol or 409 work really well to remove any dust or oils.

For best results, make sure the temperature in the room is between 60 - 80 degrees Fahrenheit and low humidity. Do not peel the backing off until you are installing the strip. Any contamination of the back side of the strips will compromise the performance of the adhesive.

Grid Strips
The decorative strips should be butted up to one another. Do not overlap the strips. Make sure to always start at the same end of the strip. You may have to trim each strip slightly, so always put the strip in place before peeling off the backing so you can see if any needs to be trimmed.

Take your first strip. The dot at the end of the strip should be directly over the intersection of the 4 tiles. Once you have the strip lined up, peel the backing from the self adhesive and apply small dabs of tile adhesive to the back of the strip (see above). Run all the strips one direction first.

Finish off by installing the strips that run perpendicular to the tiles. Each strip will need to be trimmed, so keep a pair of scissors or snips in your pocket and cut off the dotted end.

Grid Tape
Start in a corner and work one direction. Apply small dabs of adhesive every 6 inches. Trim the tape to fit when you reach the end of a run. Finish of by covering the remaining cross T's (shorter gid sections). Using the same glueing technique as above. Trim the tape to fit the space exactly. Do not overlap the tape in any areas.

How to Install Glue-Up Ceiling Tiles

Adhesives -vs- Staples
We recommend adhesive when installing our tiles. Although stapling is an option, adhering tiles with adhesive is the recommended method, yielding the most favorable results. (staples can crack the tiles). We recommend "Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive" available here.

Materials: Needed for Installation

  • Ceiling tiles
  • Tape measure
  • Pencil / Wax Pencil
  • Chalk line
  • Straight edge
  • Scissors or Ceiling Tile Aviation Snips
  • Adhesive (about 1 tube for every 8 tiles)
  • Paper towels and water for clean-up
  • Decorative Strips/Grid Tape for Prolite and Designer Series
  • Eye protection

Surface Types and Methods of Installation

Sheetrock, Drywall, Plaster, Cement
Install ceiling tiles directly to ceiling using an approved adhesive. Verify on the adhesive of your choice whether it will work for both the ceiling tile material and the material to which it is to be adhered.

Wood Paneling, Plywood
Install ceiling tiles directly to ceiling using adhesive.

Wood Furring Strips
Furring strips can be used to mount the tiles to. This method is a great solution for ceilings that are not quite perfectly flat and would require a lot of work to fix. Furring strips can be leveled with shims when installing, giving a nice flat area for the tiles to adhere to.

The furring strips should be spaced out the width and length of your tile, minus any overlap that may be required. If you are installing 2x4 tiles, we recommend putting up furring strips in a 2x2 pattern so the middle of the tile has something to adhere to.

Popcorn / Stucco / Cottage Cheese Ceilings
Ceiling tiles should never be applied directly to popcorn ceilings. The ceiling tiles need a flat, even surface to be applied to. There are several ways to create an appropriate surface. You can remove the ceiling texture, add a new layer of drywall over the existing surface, or install furring strips.

If you decide to remove the existing texture, it would be a really good idea to test the material for asbestos before going to work. The process of removing the material is messy and time consuming and depending on your local laws, you may need to have a licensed removal contractor do the work. Please check into it before you start removal.

Before You Begin
Your surface needs to be smooth, clean, and dry. Test out your adhesive and tile combination in a small area before committing to doing the whole ceiling.

Planning Your Layout
Take the time to get the layout right. This will save you many headaches farther along in the project. One of the most important things to know is that not every ceiling tile is exactly 2 "x 2"; or 2' x 4'. We refer to them as this size, and for most American grid systems, the grid is that size. But the tiles have to be a little smaller so they will fit into the grid with a little give around the edges. Be sure to check the size of your tile before laying out your ceiling. Some tiles are 23-5/8" x 23-5/8", some are 23" x 23" and some may be a little more or a little less, depending on the ceiling tile manufacturer.

Knowing your tile's real size and overlap is very important for direct mounting. You will be creating a grid on the ceiling to keep everything nice and straight. If you are off by only 1/8 of an inch on each tile, after 8 tiles you will be off a whole inch. Be as precise as you can with your measurements.

Once you receive your tiles, lay a few out on the floor and check the size and overlap.

Use grid paper and map out your ceiling. Indicate the position of lights, vents, and any other fixtures or obstructions on the ceiling. The location of these obstacles will determine your layout and overall look of the finished ceiling. Make sure you take the border into consideration when laying out the tile pattern. A larger border is often preferred over a small one.

If the ceiling tile you have chosen has a large amount of relief, you may want to consider the use of a flatter border tile in the spaces where there are lights, vents or other obstructions in the ceiling. Tiles with a large amount of relief may preclude the use of them with confronted with a surface mounted accessory.

Consider the main, most visible area of your space as well as the longest runs of tiles. These are usually the lines you want square to your starting wall. At some point, you will need to pick a wall to start from and use it as the base for your lines, keeping in mind that this wall will most likely not be square with the other walls.

Once your pattern has been decided, use the chalk line to snap your rows. Check that you are keeping your lines square every now and then. Most rooms are not square and many times tile layout is a compromise of room shape and border tile size needs.

Make sure to space your chalk lines according to your type of tile. Some tiles overlap during the installation, so you will have to reduce your line spacing to account for the tile overlap.


Both of these layouts are out of square by the same amount, only the size of the border tiles are different. The right layout shows how much easier it is to spot the imperfection in the alignment. Small border tiles will magnify how out of square a room is as it is easier to compare the true line of the edge of the tile the closer it is to the wall.

Installing the First Tile
Once you are confident in your layout, make sure all your surfaces as well as your hands are clean. Any oils on the ceiling or tiles, even the ones from your skin, can affect the performance of the adhesive. Latex gloves are a great option during the installation process, keeping oils off the tiles, and keeping your hands clean of adhesive.

Take your first tile and apply a bead of adhesive all the way around the perimeter of the backside of the tile. Make the bead 1/8" to 3/16" in size. If the tile center lays flat on the ceiling, add a 4" "X" to the center section with adhesive. If the tile has a design where only a few areas touch the ceiling, place some blobs of adhesive on those features. Keep a towel handy to clean up any adhesive that may seep out.

Gently place the tile close to it's final location next to your chalk lines. Lightly press the tile to the ceiling as you slide it into position. This lets the adhesive spread out and smear around a bit. Once you are satisfied that the tile is in place, firmly press the tile to the ceiling, rubbing out any bumps in the adhesive.

ProLite, Advantage, Designer Series
Place the second tile next to your first one. The edges of each tile should just be touching. Don't press the tiles together with force.

Continue placing full sized tiles adjusting as necessary to remain lined up on your grid lines. For non-overlapping tiles, creating a small space between tiles to remain on your layout is ok. These gaps will be covered by Grid Tape or Grid Strips when finished.

Legacy Series, Ceiling Skins
Place the second tile, overlapping the flat lip of the tile over the previous tile by about 1/4". Make sure to mark out your grid with this overlap included.

Put up as many full tiles as you can, saving the tiles that have to be cut to accommodate for fixtures to be installed last.

Border Tiles
Unless you are incredibly lucky, you will have some less than full sized tiles to be placed around the perimeter of the space. We have several tiles that are designed specifically to function as border tiles. They have very small relief and are easily cut with scissors or aviation snips.

Measure the open space from the installed tile to the wall. Make sure to take measurements at each end of the space, as these measurements are often different. Transfer your measurements to your border tile and cut it.

Just like the full size tiles, run a bead of adhesive all the way around the perimeter of the tile and in the center area of the tile as needed. If the border tiles are really small, you may not need to apply any adhesive in the center.

Decorative Strips
These self adhesive strips are designed to cover up the seams between tiles that install with no overlap. Each strip is 2 feet long with an attractive embossed pattern.

The adhesive on the back is to aid with installation, and IS NOT a permanent adhesive. Small dabs of tile adhesive should be applied to the back of the strips. A small dab at each end, and 2 dabs spaced equally in the middle of the strip are adequate to permanently secure the strip to the ceiling. The adhesive backing will allow for the strip to stick to the ceiling long enough for the tile adhesive to cure. Failure to use tile adhesive may result in the failure of the strips to adhere to the ceiling.

Approximately 1 Tube of adhesive per 125 strips (250 linear feet) is needed. We recommend Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive (available here) or Loctite Power Grab All Purpose Adhesive (available locally in most big box stores).

Make sure your tiles are flat and any adhesive that has oozed out between the cracks has been cleaned up. If your tiles have been up for a while, take some time to clean the area that the strips will be applied to. Rubbing alcohol or 409 work really well to remove any dust or oils.

For best results, make sure the temperature in the room is between 60 - 80 degrees Fahrenheit and low humidity. Do not peel the backing off until you are installing the strip. Any contamination of the back side of the strips will compromise the performance of the adhesive.

The decorative strips should be butted up to one another. Do not overlap the strips. Make sure to always start at the same end of the strip. You may have to trim each strip slightly, so always put the strip in place before peeling off the backing so you can see if any needs to be trimmed.

Take your first strip. The dot at the end of the strip should be directly over the intersection of the 4 tiles. Once you have the strip lined up, peel the backing from the self adhesive and apply small dabs of tile adhesive to the back of the strip (see above). Run all the strips one direction first.

Finish off by installing the strips that run perpendicular to the tiles. Each strip will need to be trimmed, so keep a pair of scissors or snips in your pocket and cut off the dotted end.

Easy install and great bang for your buck!

Our 1895 home was ready for a kitchen remodel but the plaster ceiling we found above an old drop ceiling was beyond repair. Getting rid of the drop ceiling was at the top of my list. After spending some time looking for a solution that wouldn't break the bank and fit the Victorian feel of the house I found these. I was worried that I would regret not buying tin tiles but when the product arrived I was extremely pleased. They look amazing and were so easy to install. They trim easily and have added so much character to the kitchen. I can't say enough about how great these turned out using our existing ceiling grid. Now my "drop ceiling" is one of my favorite things in the house. We are already deciding which ceiling is next.

Large variety of patterns to choose from. Most importantly I was able to order a small amount of tiles for a small project at the same price as large quantity orders. Shipped fast and customer service was great! Website made it easy to place my order. Will definitely purchase again when we replace our kitchen ceiling!

Great results

Easy to use and a great result. Our high, 13 foot, ceilings distributed the color nicely. Worked well with the border tiles which were used in a few areas besides the border due to vents etc. It really gives a solid old world TIN look. Nothing but raves from everyone who has seen it so far. Will be ordering again for a future upgrade.

Great product, easy to handle.

The tiles are tough, but easy to cut with stout scissors. They went up easily and covered a really bad looking ceiling. We glued them up with Power Grab adhesive. You would never know they aren't the real deal. A few tutorials might be helpful, especially tips on beginning the layout, and marking the tiles needing cuts. One tip: we used a black marker on the edges to make sure there weren't white edges showing at the seams.

Truly awesome

These tiles were easy to cut and install and are very beautiful-the all important factor is the glue! It has to grab immediately as gravity is pulling on it. We applied directly to a new, un-painted hardboard ceiling using liquid nails tub surround. Looks amazing!

Looks great

We spray painted the grid to match the color of the tiles and it looks great. A few of the tiles had damage on the corners but we used them for the edges and it all worked out fine. We believe the damage occurred when the freight company threw them on the porch and left.

We're so glad that your installation turned out great and appreciate your resourcefulness in making use of the damaged tiles for your borders. We are also more than happy to replace tiles that are damaged in shipping.

Much better than traditional drop ceilings

Everyone who sees this tile in our new bar room/man cave gives us compliments. It looks great and is very easy to install. Proceilingtiles.com is very easy to work with and I recommend them highly. Only issue for me was painting the grid system. Would like to have a better option as I was told the tape did not match the tile. Painting the grid is tedious at best. :(

Beautiful ceiling at half the price others charge.

We used this ceiling in a bathroom and couldn't be more pleased with it. Everybody that uses our bathroom comments on the ceiling. The home improvement places want around double the money for a similar ceiling. This is a beautiful product at a fair price. They obviously operate their business on good principles. If I ever need another ceiling, this is who I will buy it from.

Love the tiles!

I've had people think these are real tin! We had to remove glue-on ceiling tiles and they left a mess of adhesive blobs. So we screwed 1/2" wood strips on the ceiling, stapled one edge of the tile to a furring strip and then overlapped the next tile, adhering it with the adhesive suggested. We did not start in center as we wanted only one edge that was cut. Two suggestions: Offer adhesive in the color of the tile. It was a bit of a challenge to keep the adhesive from not squishing onto the next tile. Also, I was a little concerned about the two cut edge sides - whether they would look right, but it turned out fine. We put up a small strip of crown moulding and the edges fell into place against the moulding after a week or so. We did not use the trim moulding (returned it) as we found it wasn't needed for the way we installed the tiles. These were installed in December 2013 and so far so good!!

Everyone comments how cool it looks it's only been up a short time so I'm not educated on his performance with heating,cooling, humidity etc.

We install the ceiling over 1-1/2" extruded polystyrene board, it was difficult to find a product to adhere the two together, the recommended adhesive didn't work we end up use Cello text ceiling tile adhesive, The end product turned out to be very cool looking

As Advertised

Needed to cover up 3 different peeling ceiling surfaces in an upstairs bath. Used with their ACP surface mount grid, well worth it although my project was under 100 sq ft so would vote for being able to purchase individual grid pieces if given that choice. Customer service contacted me multiple ways to recommend color match, wh/ I greatly appreciated and wh/ matched well. Hope it holds up to bath moisture but am confident. Several tiles fell out as I "tipped" the next grid, but only one small corner chipped upon hitting the floor. The tiles were more durable than I'd expected. The ugly ceiling I fought for 15 years is now covered and beautiful. Will use again on upcoming entry project.

Looks good

Used these ceiling tiles to replace old standard tiles on an existing drop ceiling in the bathroom. The only issue my husband had installing these was getting a snug fit at the edges when he had to make a cut (because of the design). The delivery was quick and the price fantastic. Would definitely order from this site again.

Product definitely transformed the dining room. A few gliches with tiles being shaded a bit different and some of the packaging resulted in damaged tiles, but all was taken care of and had nothing to do with the quality of the product. I have already recommended your company to 3 other clients looking to give their rooms a new look.

Looks amazing and getting tons of compliments!

Looks amazing but not perfect for certain grids like metal ones. Unfortunate there was not a specification about different types of grids.

We are glad to hear that you are receiving so many compliments on your ceiling The Cathedral should work with any standard sized grid; the material of the grid shouldn't affect the tile. What might affect it is if it is a slimline grid system which is only 9/16" wide (compared to the common 15/16" or 1" grid systems). For slimline grids you need special tiles in order for them to fit properly.

New Ceiling

The ceiling tile looks great. My problem is that it really didn't go up like I was told it would. By using construction glue, against the sheetrock ceiling, the tiles didn't stay up. Another issue was the 1/2 inch border. It was supposed to be direct mount, but the border looked as though it was for grid mount. Placing them together gave a large space between tiles that really didn't look good, so I had to improvise and overlap where I could. After a lot of adjusting, I had to use a lot of caulk to fill in the spaces. Fortunately it turned out well. At least nobody can see what I see. Lots of positive comments.
