    • Custom Stains Available
    • High Quality 5 Layer Plywood Backing
    • 2x2 or 2x4 Sizes
    • Custom Sizing Available

    Floors are not the only part of a room that can be layered in wood. These veneer tiles can provide the appeal of wood decor to your ceiling. Each tile is custom-made in cut, fit, and stain for use in a standard grid system (these tiles can not be used as flooring). Let’s talk ceilings!

    Select your wood species from the most popular choices in wood furnishings and improve it even further with several stain options of your choosing. Use it in a 15/16” drop-in grid system of either 2x2 or 2x4 sizes. It is so easy to install, they will just set into place.

    Custom Product
    These tiles are being constructed when they are ordered, so we are not constricted to just the two standard tile sizes. If there is a custom size that is required, than just let us know and we can produce a quote.

    Custom Order Refund Policy
    The return policy for our custom ordered ceiling tiles is different than on most of our products. These tiles are manufactured to your specific order rather than stocked. For returns and partial refunds on our custom made tiles, you are responsible for and a deduction will be taken for the original shipping costs to get the tiles to you, the cost of return shipping, and a 50% restocking fee (since we will have no idea if we can later sell your specific tiles to another customer)...so please be certain of your order to avoid any problems. We make them specifically for you, so keep in mind that if you order them...you buy them!

    How To Install Drop In Ceiling Tiles

    • Materials: Tools Needed for Installation
    • 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 plan your layout. One of the most important things to know is that not every ceiling tile is exactly 2"x2" or 2"x4". Most tiles are slightly smaller so that they are versatile; working for both glue-up and drop grid applications. Be sure to check the size of your tile before laying out your ceiling.

    With Grid Strips (Available for ProLite, Legacy, and Designer Series ceiling tiles)
    If you plan on using grid strips to cover the seams, be sure to check the spacing needed between the tiles. Use a grid strip to verify the space needed to allow the grid strips to lay flat.

    Without Grid Strips (An option for Legacy and Designer Series tiles, and recommended for Manchester ceiling tiles)
    Place a few tiles on the floor and check the size and overlap. The overlap length can vary depending on the tile design and/or personal preference.

    Note: The thickness compounds where 4 tiles overlapping tiles meet for the Legacy and Designer tiles. With careful planning, you can trim 2 or 3 tiles to minimize the thickness. This step is also a personal preference. For most installers, the ceiling height makes the overlap thickness unnoticeable.

    Planning Your Layout
    Knowing the actual size and overlap of the tile is very important for direct mounting. You will be marking 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.

    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. Use your drawing to plan an even border around the room.

    Note: 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 significant relief design may preclude the use of them when 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. Most rooms are not square and many times tile layout is a compromise of room shape and border tile size needs.

    Once your pattern has been decided, use a chalk line to snap your rows. Make sure to space your chalk lines according to your size of tile. If you are overlapping tiles during installation, you will have to reduce your line spacing to account for the tile overlap.

    Note: Both of these layouts are out of square by the same amount, only the size of the border tiles are different. The layout on the right shows how much easier it is to spot the imperfection in the alignment. The smaller the border tile, the greater it will magnify how out of square a room is.

    Installing the First Tile
    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 dabs of adhesive on those sections. Keep a damp towel handy to clean up any adhesive that may seep out.

    Gently place the tile close to its 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 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.

    Second Tile - With Overlap
    Use the same gluing technique as the first tile. Place the second tile next to your first one, overlapping the edge(s) by your predetermined amount. Your grid should have marks where your tile edge should be. Continue to place full sized tiles, adjusting as necessary, to remain lined up on your grid lines.

    Second Tile - Without Overlap
    Use the same gluing technique as the first tile. Place the second tile next to your first one. The edges of each tile should be touching. Don't press the tiles together with force. Use the Grid Strip to confirm you are placing the tiles with the correct spacing. Continue placing full sized tiles adjusting as necessary to remain lined up on your grid lines. For non-overlapping tiles, creating a small space to remain on your layout is okay. These gaps will be covered by the Grid Strips when finished.

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

    Decorative Strips
    Grid strips are designed to cover up the seams between non-overlapping ceiling tiles. Each strip is 2 feet long and most designs come with an 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 adhering permanently.

    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 trimming is needed.

    Looks Great

    I love the new wood ceiling tiles. They are perfect in my room since I'm trying to have a rustic cabin feel décor. My only comment would be to have something that could be stained to go over the metal drop ceiling form. We did our best to match the tiles but it would have been better to have a product made out of the same material we could have stained so it would totally match the ceiling. Other than that I am perfectly satisfied with your product and your sales team. You followed up with me from the time I placed the order to the time the product was delivered. Thank you for a great product and great service.
