Print/DownloadProduct Spec Sheet
These thermoform tiles are made from UV Stabilized .013" thick vinyl plastic. They are designed to provide all the functionality of conventional drop ceiling tiles at a fraction of the weight. The feather-light construction makes them easy to install, easy to clean, stain resistant, water resistant, dust free, and resource friendly! Installation is fast and couldn't be any easier.
Designed to fit all standard 15/16" - 1" T-Bar Ceiling Systems. Most of the thermoform ceiling tiles come in two sizes, 2'x2' and 2'x4'.
FYI - If you have a 2x4 grid ceiling, but would prefer the look of the 2x2 ceiling tiles, simply insert a 2' center T bar available online or at most local hardware stores...it's easy!
5 Year ProShield Warranty
The ceiling tile manufacturer guarantees that your ceiling tiles will be free from manufacturing defects for a period of five years from the date of purchase. Limitations apply. See full warranty information below.
ProLite ceiling tiles bearing this mark are UL tested and approved drop-out ceiling panels that can be installed beneath fire sprinklers. When exposed to heat from a developing fire, drop-out ceiling panels soften, distort, and fall from the ceiling grid. Heat from the growing fire activates the sprinkler which, unimpeded by the panels, controls or extinguishes the fire.
The Stratford grid tile is our most popular selling drop ceiling tile. Its classic simplicity makes it a great option for any type of space. Our customers are continually amazed at its ability to transform the look of their room. Being that it is FDA compliant, it is an excellent choice for restaurants. We are also proud to say that it is made in the USA.Things to Consider:
Since the Stratford tile is not flat on the back, it is not suitable for use as a direct mount tile. While it is only .013" thick, the embossed design gives it the rigidity and structure needed to support itself in the grid with no sagging. To avoid the risk of sagging, we discourage placing any weight above it. If you would like to keep your existing acoustical tile in the grid for insulation or sound barrier purposes, we recommend that you place it above the framework so that it is not putting any weight on the Stratford.
It is more than likely that your room has partial tiles on the perimeter. Not to worry- The Stratford tile lays nice and flat in the grid when cut to any size. Since the recession of the design is only .5", there is no unsightly gap that will show. If your grid is already white and in good condition, it should match the white Stratford tile very well. If you are going with a colored option, we highly recommend that you consider the Grid Tape or Grid Strips since they are color coordinated with the ProLite collection. If you would prefer to avoid the extra expense, you can of course paint your grid as well.
The ceiling tile meets the criteria for use in Food Areas as outlined by the FDA Food Code 2013 Chapter 6 6-101.11. FDA Food Code 2013
Greenguard Gold Certification offers strict certification criteria that considers safety factors to account for sensitive individuals (such as children and the elderly), and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. It is referenced by both The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building Rating System. Click here for more information.
Certain ProLite ceiling tiles are approved drop-out ceiling panels that can be installed beneath fire sprinklers. When exposed to heat from a developing fire, drop-out ceiling panels soften, distort, and fall from the ceiling grid. Heat from the growing fire activates the sprinkler which, unimpeded by the panels, controls or extinguishes the fire. Click here for more information.
Materials used in the construction of the tile(s) are 100% waterproof.
Class A Fire Rated
Tiles have been tested in accordance with ASTM 84e and scored a Class A rating for flame spread and smoke generation.

Difference from Photos
This warranty does not cover differences between photographs and actual products purchased.
There are no implied warranties, representations or conditions, except those required by statute, and they shall not extend beyond the term of the warranty applicable to your purchase.
Consequential or Incidental Damages
We exclude and will not pay any consequential or incidental damage, loss or expense.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have other rights which vary by jurisdiction.
If a manufacturing defect does occur within the terms and conditions of this warranty, you will be supplied with new material to replace the defective parts, subject to inspection and approval by ProCeilingTiles. The replacement materials will be of the same or similar design and quality.
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.
When returning products to ProCeilingTiles.com the customer is responsible for the shipping cost back to us, and the actual shipping cost that we incurred while sending you the product. The customer's refund equation is: (Price for Product + Tax) - (Actual shipping cost) = Customer 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.
Custom products do not qualify for a refund if returned. Custom products include, but are not limited to, the Imagination Series, Leather & Wood Tiles, 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.

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:
Our SoniGuard insulation is specifically built and designed to work above our ProLite Series and can be purchased from our website.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our ceiling tiles look so great, thank you! I ordered two different styles, as we were going to have to cut some of the Stratford ones, to go around corners and stuff. We ended up sending back the plain ones, as the Stratford ones worked great, even if we had to cut them. I never thought people actually noticed ceiling tiles, but much to my surprise ... THEY DO. Everyone that walks in, says how much they love our ceiling tiles. Thanks for making this process so easy, we appreciate that! I highly recommend!
I was pleased with how easy these were to install and how much of an improvement it made to the ceiling! My only slight displeasure was the logo on the front edge of the tiles as it's exposed. However, most people don't look close at a ceiling so we're able to get away with using them.
We are very please with this product and the look of our basement. We renovated a 1980 basement with low ceilings and this product is great because it isn't over bearing and give a bright radiance to the rooms. Extremely easy to install.
These were perfect for our lower level remod. The great thing about this style is that the detail is not so deep as to need a different flatter tile around the edges. Love the look and are so happy we found these.
These panels are REALLY thin so if you plan on installing can lights or smoke detectors plan on supporting the fixture from above, it can be done and if done right looks ok. These panels have a slightly rough texture to them not shown in the picture.
I installed these tile @ 300 square feet using the pvc flush mount grid system. At first,I simply measured each square and the grid layout and didn't get things squared very well....bought a laser level and problem solved. The tile is very light weight as stated,but,installed great in this flush mount system. Overall...very easy to install, a great appearance and I am purchasing more tile to complete another small area.
trimming can be done with a stout pair of scissors!
shopped around and found this site to be least expensive. tiles are very thin but look expensive. easy to work with and look great.
Our ceiling looks incredible! The tiles were extremely easy to work with. I would use them again. Great value for the price!
Price was right, quality of product was very nice and customer service was excellent!
What an improvement your new ceiling tiles made to the lobby of our tired old condominium lobby! It brought us into the 21st century and will makes us looks stylish for years to come. Affordable too!
Tiles look great easy to cut and put up on the ceiling
Arrived quickly ,was easy to install, looks great!
This same ceiling tile is 25-75% more on other sites and in home improvement stores AND it gets shipped directly to your doorstep in a speedy fashion! So glad we used proceilingtiles.
So happy with my new basement ceiling!
Just installed white Stratford and must say that the results are exactly what I wanted. Clean, attractive and very easy to install, the product is not inexpensive but the results are worth the incremental cost. Received the materials in 2 days. They were well packed. If you get them dirty for any reason, clean with Magic Eraser. A very good experience from start to finish.
We installed this in what was previously a laundry/ furnace/hot water heater room that we were changing to a kitchenette in the basement. A lot of pipes and wires to hide. The finished product is really very lovely. The tiles them selves look beautiful, but they were just a tad bit thin. It was a little difficult when we had to cut a tile and the unfinished edge was against the wall and resting on the bracket.
We used the Stratford Vinyl Ceiling tiles in one of our bathrooms and our basement and both rooms turned out great. The tiles are easy to install and did not take us long to complete our project. We would highly recommend this product.
The Stratford tile was recommended as a border tile for our dining room where we used the Medallion tile as our main tile. Extremely easy to cut and trim,. They fit into the grid nicely and made an attractive border. Because of its lightweight and ease of use, we are considering the Stratford for our next project, the foyer!
Easy to install, looks very nice.
Love the ceiling tiles they look great and we get compliments all the time
Great customer service, answered all questions, guided me to details of the products so I could determine what was best for me.
Ordered the white translucent ceiling tiles. A great enhancement to the decor and added much more light. The professionalism when dealing with customer service was outstanding Would highly recommend this company and their product !
Good product, very easy to cut for edge pieces. Turned out to be very nice looking. Ordered for one room in the basement first, now I have ordered the same tile different color for the other rooms.
Looks really great, very easy to install. Only thing I will say it is very thin.
Absolutely love these ceiling tiles. Replaced black painted acoustic tile. Looks so rich and the preliminary showing of our Restaurant renovations has been complimented by all that have seen them so far. The shipping and service was phenomenal, answered any questions we had before placing such a large order. Very pleased. They are thin so we kept the old acoustic above them as another reviewer suggested and it worked great.
Finished 800 sq ft of bsmt with these and turned out great. Easy to install and cut tiles along edges of room. Tons of comments about how good it looks. Tiles are on the pricey side and add up quick but feel like was worth it to get the look. Had to modify installing my lights since used a low profile style light instead of can lights because the tiles are thin but was able to get it to work.
Ordered these to replace the old nasty tiles in our basement. Like many others I was a little skeptical. They are very thin. But they went up easily and looked so fantastic that we made another order to finish a second area in the basement. What a huge improvement!
Renovated basement, took down old acoustical ceiling, looks like a million bucks, customer service help was the best..definitely would recommend..
Tiles worked out great. They shipped fast and when we did have a box of tiles damaged in shipping, they sent another out immediately without hassle. I highly recommend this company and their products.
My ceiling looks great, but around the edges and where panels are cut, there is a void due to the contour of the panel.
Much classier looking than the original light cover panels
The tile was delivered quickly and it looks great in my basement. I will be ordering more.
They look good, easy installation and cutting with a scissor makes it quick and easy. They are bit light, which makes them move a bit when doors close and when the vacuum exhaust blows up wards.
I used these for border tiles and it was a great match to the Westminister. So easy to cut and work with. Great for limited clearance.
We finished out basement using mailing the white tiles. We also used the copper tiles as well. The tiles are so easy to work with and look so beautiful and expensive. We had a party over the weekend and got more compliments on the ceiling than the bar! I highly recommend using Proceilingtiles.com.
Thank God I only bought 20 panels for a small basement bathroom. If not for their costly return policy, they would have been sent back. The heat from a 25 watt light bulb 6 in away will totally distort it. And don't open your door to fast they are so cheap they blow right out of the grid. Ridiculous!
I am 100% satisfied with these ceiling tile, from the quality to the price to the shipping and the look. They are VERY thin material, but look like high-end expensive tiles. Since installing them in my basement all of my friends and family were shocked to find out these weren't the most expensive tiles out there. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for an affordable, yet sleek and modern look.
These tiles are great!! Easy to install and cut. I finished my basement with them and had over 40 cuts, angles, recessed light and heat cuts I had to make and it was a breeze. I won't buy any other tile again!
Our old space looks so sophisticated. They were very easy to install. Thank you for this new product.
Do not hesitate to purchase these! We did three rooms in our home with these tiles and they look amazing! Easy to install and work with, and what a difference they made! Rooms look brighter, cleaner, bigger and elegant! So happy with the outcome.... and they are budget friendly!
This was one of the easiest products to use. I did one room with this product and we liked it so much that I ordered enough to do 2 more rooms. I would definitely buy this again and recommend to others.
I have ordered and used these ceiling tiles on numerous projects. East to install and cut. I have gotten many compliments on the style and look of the ceilings that were installed. The cost savings using these tiles over conventional ceiling is unbelievable.
These ceiling tiles are really easy to cut to size and look great. Weíve had lots of positive compliments since we finished the other half of our basement rec room with them. I would recommend these panels to anyone who is considering the installation of a grid ceiling. Procilingtiles.com had the best price and with free shipping, AAA
We replaced old ceiling tiles and added recessed lighting with the Stratford ceiling tiles and they are perfect. Delivery was a snap too!!
Expensive for what it is, but is easy to install and looks good. I would recommend using metal framework instead of vinyl as I did, especially if you plan to use drop in LED lighting.
A super nice way to dress up a basement ceiling. The tile is flexible enough to get into a grid placed about two inches below the heating and cold air return duct work. In fact, I was able to place a 24" x 48" LED flat panel light in that space. I didn't think that I would be able to pull this off, but I was able to tackle this project myself, a non-professional homeowner, using 102 tiles . I've received a lot of compliments and am pleased with the results. The tile shipped quickly and packaged well. The staff at ProCeilingTiles seem to be courteous and helpful with suggestions. This is my second purchase from them.
We replaced 25 year old ceil tile that was in our basement. The new vinyl tile was easy to cut and install. I used the old rails and cross pieces. We like this product.
These installed quickly and easily. They are super thin so we left the original tile above them for more insulating properties because were in Arizona and its super hot here and I don't need all my ac going up to the roof. But they are very pretty, did the job well and were fairly priced. Customer service and delivery was nice and fast too.
Used these tiles in rental properties and everybody loves them! Definitely looks better than a standard, boring ceiling tile and gives it a much nicer look overall instead of it looking like the waiting room at a doctors office! I did receive a couple damaged tiles and customer service was outstanding and sent replacements to me. I'll be buying more in the future for sure!
so we have a 350 sq ft room in basement with an 8'9'' finished ceiling height. I planned around the use of the stratford tile, but was dismayed when i found out they weren't a great fit for my ceiling grid. It turns out the stratford aren't mean't to be used with 9/16'' grid, but rather only with 15/16''. i had used the 9/16 because it was left over from a commercial project and the price was right. so if you install the stratford in the 9/16'' grid you actually have a gap in each of the 4 corners that would be concealed in normal grid. we had already ordered the stratford so we were determined to figure a way forward... it turns out the stratford has the same structural integrity when installed upside down and the flange around the perimeter is actually larger and is covered by the grid like this! the added bonus, on top of it now being a product we could use, is that you get a look almost like a raised / coffered tile with this basic stratford tile. this method could only be used for full tiles. all around the perimeter we simply cut the stratford as would typically be done and we placed them in position with cuts as tight as possible. my only drawback to this system is how lightweight they are - we have a door that is apparently fairly airtight on either side. if we open or close it a t a normal to fast speed, the tiles move and can even lift out of place. they don't fall, but they do require replacement. so we are opening the door more slowly and i'll likely put some pieces of foam on top of the tiles if they'll take the weight.
Love, love, love my new ceiling tiles!!! They add such elegance to a simple living room. They are easy to install, I did it all by myself. I have referred several people to this site already and my tiles have only been up for a week. May need to freshen up my grid system yet. Thanks again.
Looks much better and when are you doing the rest of the basement! I love it. Noise is not as insulated. Had to cover old tile with the new tile to connect the vents in order to support weight of duct. It was difficult.
The Stratford Tile took our ceiling from ho-hum to spectacular! They are easy to place, and easy to trim. A great investment in our home! Highly recommend!
These tiles were easy to put up. Even though our project isn't finished, the basement looks pretty cool,thanks to these tiles.
Worked great with old dropped ceiling (35 years) New ceiling looks outstanding
I was very pleased with the final look of my drop ceiling after replacing my ceiling tiles with these. It makes the room look much more elegant and high end. I would recommend these to anyone. The price to look ratio is great!
Makes a huge difference compared to the old fashioned drop tiles. Used in downstairs bathroom, water proof, looks awesome.
I was very skeptical when I was unboxing the product tiles are very very thin.When the contractor was putting up the grid he said why did you get cheap tiles at this point I wanted to kick him out of my house but I couldnít heís been my friend for 30yrs LOL so he started to install the tiles call me downstairs in the basement and said WOW that these tiles were one of the easiest tiles to install and OMG they look great I live in a ranch style house with all wooden floors I have 3 boys and a 105lbs dog when Iím downstairs I can barely hear them upstairs...Thanks Stratford you make a great ceiling I would definitely use your product again and would refer anyone that needs an acoustical ceiling
The easiest product I have ever worked with. Looks great. Just had house appraised and the room this product went in increased home value by over $2000. We are planning on installing this in 2 other rooms next year. Thanks again.
Have made multiple orders during my renovations. Website is easy to navigate, service is outstanding, and its a great product. Will definitely use in the future.
Were easy to replace okd beatup acoustic 2x2 tiles. Cut with a scissor. Tiles are tremendously thin in light but also very strong and hold up nicely in the 2 by 2 frame
looks great and very easy to work with
Once these are installed they look very elegant! Nice ceiling for the price. Very easy to cut.
Customer service outstanding! Very helpful with great and positive attitudes.
Tiles make room look great, very easy to install
I purchased enough to complete a bedroom in my basement. The free shipment was faster than expected with no damage to any of the tiles. I ordered 60 and received 60. The installation was a breeze because these can go into tighter spaces than conventional acoustic tiles. Customer support was very helpful and courteous. I will be ordering about 120 or more tiles to complete the kitchen area and the living room. I would recommend these tiles because I have not found any locally or online for this great price.
Building a room in my cellar required a suspended ceiling that would be maintenance free so to speak. I didnít want to worry about tiles and humidity. After Googling for suspended ceilings Proceilingtiles.com were one of the first ones to come up. I didnít have to look any further. These tiles are mold and mildew proof, need virtually no room above the grid to install and easily trimmed with just a pair of scissors. In my opinion these tiles are the only way to go whether your installing them in a cellar or not.
I painted my grid to match and everyone likes the result of the completed job.
Looks great in my basement bar. Tiles are very thin so be careful while cutting them. It really gives a great appearance to the room.
The tiles were easy to install and they make the room look so much better.
This was used in my utility and rec room. Was easy to install. I also installed a different design in my hobby room. Makes a nice improvement in looks in all three rooms.
Our Steatford ceiling tiles gave a whole new look to our finished basement ceiling. Everyone comments how nice they look and do not look like all the other drop ceilings. They are thin but stable. They were super easy to install. We popped them in our 12x24 room in under 1 hour ( of course the grid was already in place). The only down fall is we had to figure another way to support our recessed lighting ( but it can be done.
the tiles are easy to use and cut. Just make sure you don't cut two together like I did. I have an 1900 built house and the drop tiles really add a nice touch. Glad I found your company.
We got these to replace our old standard drop ceiling at our storefront and it really helps to make the space look polished. They were super easy to install too and since they're so thin there was no snapping or breaking when maneuvering them in.
I installed the tiles in two rooms -- a bedroom and a bathroom-- in my basement, replacing acoustic tiles. They were easy to install (cutting for ceiling fan and AC vent was a little tricky), but well worth the time. Best price I could find too.
Replacing the old acoustical tile made the room much brighter. Easy to install and looks good.
Really makes the room look brand new. I would recommend to others thinking about a makeover
very thin material
There were several that were "dimpled " and I'll have to replace them. I'd say about 18 out of 200. I totally love how they look and were easy to install.
This is the second rec room that I have used Ceilume 2x2 Stratford ceiling tile. I was so pleased the first time I used this ceiling tile: it is lightweight, flexible, easy too cut around vents and fixtures, fast to place in the grid and looks really professional when the ceiling is finished. So, I ordered Ceilume again when finishing my son's rec room ceiling.
These tile are so easy to work with and made an old ceiling look nice .
The tile looks rich for a low price and it came very quickly for our needs
I love the tiles! It makes the room look so much better!! Thank you :)
These look pretty good once they are installed. I'm happy with them!
Haven't installed yet but expect it to look great. Delivery was so quick and efficient.
I saw the tiles at my nephew's house that he just installed and got the info on ProCeilingTiles. I ordered on-line and received the tiles within 2 days. However, after opening the package one corner was punched in. The damage was minor but would still show up if installed. I contact customer service (Vicki Fenton) and sent pictures. She was extremely helpful and send a complete new order to me which also arrived in 2 business days with no damage. Installation was very easy and cutting them with scissors was very convenient. I was extremely happy with the purchase. They are a little on the pricy side but well with the money especially with the outstanding customer service and free shipping (twice for me).
We had someone install the fram for us, which was worth every penny. But even as new homeowners with little home improvement experience, install of the tiles was super easy. They cut simply with a set of household scissors and fit right into a standard 2x2 frame. The finished look is amazing too!
Yes, I love it, was easy and really looks nice now. I did it all myself. Sue
When we were told we needed a fire-rated ceiling panel, I thought we would be stuck with some dreary selections and was pleasantly surprised at the range of style choices from Pro Ceiling Tiles. I went with a wood-grain look and they keep the look of my office in tact without skipping a beat. They sent me a sample pack promptly and the only problem was trying to decide which style and look to go with.
Fast shipping, awesome customer service, and these tiles look AMAZING in my refinished basement.
The price was right and shipping was fast. The tiles look great and changed the look of the room!
The ease of instalation was excellent. I have received many complements about the beautiful appearance. There were some adhesion issues with the self sticking decorative grid strips. They required the application of additional construction adhesive. Some of the strips fell from the ceiling days after the instalation and required the construction adhesive. Overall, I am very pleased with the end result.
Had a great experience in purchasing these tiles. The product is as described, delivery was prompt and they look awesome. I will recommend these to friends in the future. We did our kitchen in these with florescent lights behind the drop ceiling, everyone comments on how great the ceiling looks.
The tiles were installed in the basement and it looks great. We also sprayed painted the rails and the tiles really stand out.
These ceiling tiles have made such a huge difference in the look of my room. So many of my friends are saying how much they love the look and are considering doing the same with their ceilings. The tiles are very easy to cut for smaller sections and very easy to install. They came very well-packaged and they arrived quickly.
Easy to install.
I ordered a few of the Stratford Vinyl Ceiling Tiles to see how they would work for a current project. I wasn't terribly impressed with the quality--a little thin for my taste--but when I asked if I could return them, Vicki Fenton was very helpful and gracious. Great service! I will consider other ProCeiling products as the need arises.
These tiles look amazing! I bought the Westminster and they serves as the outline and they look great together.
These tiles are very lightweight and flexible, making them easy to install in an existing frame. The tiles are easily cut with scissors. They have a nice finished look to them. The only thing to watch out for is when using partial tiles, there can be a gap where the cut edge is against the frame. This is inherent to the decorative design and cannot be avoided. Overall a good value for a nice looking ceiling.
Exactly what I was hoping for including easy, clean installation. Also easy to remove when accessing fixture or sub-ceiling. Love it!
Everyone loves them
U was a little skeptical aboit the tiles because of them being plastic and light-weught. I purchased a few samples and the Stratford was the once I chose it was the simple to use for sections Indisnt need a full tile. I have to say my kitchen ceiling turned out beautiful and for half the costs to replace the old style tile. I would recommend.
This product is great to add a little height and does not need much space to install. Very happy with the product and company, shipping has been quick and product is easy to install and cut. Looks great with westminster
Tiles were easy to install and they make the room look great!
Tiles look great, everyone comments it doesn't look like a drop ceiling.
The tiles are nice looking and offer a better design than the standard drop ceiling tiles made from mineral fiber. Make sure to support your lighting and heat/ac ducts properly when using these tiles. The tiles are thin pvc and are excellent for a do it yourself project!
makes the room look so elegant and looks like an expensive ceiling
Great product, easy to install and looks great. A great value for the money!
These are very easy to install and they look nice as well. Very lightweight and easy to work with, they cut with a scissors. Be careful when installing them, they are very thin and can bend easily. If they were a little thicker, and a little more rigid it would be nice but overall, good product.
Installation process was the easiest I have ever performed. I would recommend looking into the tape as these are bright white (which I love) and makes a typical suspension grid finish look a little off.
This product is very easy to install and it looks great!
Put drop ceiling in bathroom. Looks great!!
Room looks great. I put in laundry and dining room.
Was worried that these wouldn't look great but they look really nice.
Brought clean lines and a brightness to the room.
Great price (cheaper than any other online and local stores). I especially enjoyed the service and fast delivery
Tiles were delivered as promised. Easy to work with and looks GREAT!
I read the reviews which convinced me to give it a go and very happy with the results. I ordered a black 1 inch armstrong ceiling grid from Lowes. These fit right in. They were easy to cut and look very nice. I am very happy with them. Shipping was very quick!
The tiles look great on our remodel of 2 church rooms. They were a bit flimsy but they look great. love the design and ease of cut but they are a bit flimsy and make it a bit hard to put in place easily. Would buy again!
These were extremely easy, relatively no-mess compared to my old acoustics I was replacing. With the added bonus of being washable and not having to worry about absorbing 40 years of basement moisture odors it was a no brainer for me to swap with these! Also, once the old ones were down it was such a quick job despite my grid being installed at a crazy angle. The cutting of the tiles was done in seconds per piece with a basic large scissors. I've since received nothing but compliments and comments on the look of it being "high-end".
Very easy to put in. Look great! .
i installed these tiles in my dining room to surprise my wife. she absolutely loves them. it took me less than an hour to do a 16x12 room with cutting the end tiles. if you want to have a room that stands out i would go with these.
Very white and beautiful product. I wish they were just a little thicker but they do look elegant. Gave 4 stars only because as thin as they are the cost should be a less than it is. Disappointed with how much it cost for how flimsy they are but they look beautiful once up.
Second time i've used it and I love it Flexibility with the tile makes it so easy to install and I can hang the grid a little higher also because of that , not to mention all the colors to choose from.
We got rid of yellowing plastic covers and these made the whole room look better. They were easy to install and only a couple needed to be cut to fit.
We ordered the tiles and the grid strips in Faux Bronze for a drop ceiling we installed in the service kitchen. It looks beautiful and we are glad we did our research and located this company..
Excelllent customer service, highly recommended
Room looks much more finished
Really looks great and adds character to space. It is plastic and you can tell it is but does not look cheap and holds up well.
swapped out old standard ceiling tiles for these. They are thin and easy to cut, improved the look of the basement immensely.
Excellent product. Many people commented on how nice they looked
Our new house kitchen had a dropped celing with nasty foam tiles and it was so ugly but to raise it was very expensive. I shopped around and these were the cheapest prices I could find. My husband and i had our hesitations but it looked amazing!! I love it. we even have people compliment it all the time. We will never raise our celing because I love my tiles so much. It was also very easy to install!
We used these tiles as a border where we only needed partial tiles. They match the Westminster in looks and make a great tie-in.
These were a better price then Home Depot and had a faster shipping time. Great customer service.
Ordered item based on sample panel received. Thickness of order was a lot thinner than sample. Disappointed!
Changed the entire look of the room. Went from outdated to updated so easily.
We still can't believe what a difference these tiles made in our basement. Truly transformative in only a matter of maybe an hour or so. So much better than the builders-grade ceiling tiles we had there.
great service, perfect,
Looks great in our dining room!!
There were some ceiling tiles with little dents probably due to shipping. Box was deformed on one side when received. Did not realized until we installed it 2 weeks ago.
Bought these for my home office remodel and ended up using them in other rooms as well my wife liked them so much.
Light weight. Easy to work with. Cuts with scissors. Everyone who walks into my office comments on them.
Everyone that has seen the tile is shocked to see how much of an improvement the tile has made. Also where i purchased them.
For the cost of these ceiling tiles I was not anticipating the flimsy ,film like quality. Without any support, these tiles will not sit properly and will fall out of the supporting drop tile frame Need to lower pricing or improve quality
I used this as a border tile along with the Madison, worked out great
Product was great. All of my gueststuff who come over love them! Easy to install.
Tiles look good installed in full.
We purchased the Latte tile. Arrived in 1 day. Beautiful packaging. Really made me feel like I was receiving a superior product. Easy to cut and flexible to install. Looks fabulous once up. I chose to use white track with latte tiles and the contrast is nice with the white recessed lights. Very happy! The customer service team is also extremely helpful when you call.
The look of this product is appealing. The project was fairly easy to perform and the outcome was nice. I am a little concerned that the tiles are so thin and flimsy. I hope they hold up, but so far so good. Also, the white is not a great match with my brand new white rails, but somewhat close. Overall I'm very satisfied.
We had these old 1970,s plastic grids up in our kitchen ... I bought these ceiling tiles and painted the metal bars to match my brown cabinets ... they look amazing and I cant wait to get the LED panel to finish off the look Thanks again.. i want to try other styles possibly the metal look ones ... Great look ... for a great price!!!!
I purchased these tiles as the edge tiles for my living room ceiling, which I had done in the deeper set Madison tiles. I could not imagine that the relatively flat Stratford would blend well with the Madison. However, the ceiling came out looking great. I'm already planning my next project!
Super easy to cut and install.
Quick and easy to install!
The ceiling tiles look incredible in our basement. They were easy to install and look much thicker than they are. Everyone compliments how great they look.
We refinished our basement and wanted a nice looking drop ceiling. These tiles are perfect. They were very easy to install and they look great!
The product is so easy to work with, cutting them with scissors. Even took a hole saw to a bunch of them for LED lights to poke through and that worked well. I put my racking up super high to save head space and these work into tight spaces well (much better than the corrugate versions). They are expensive though, but worth it in my opinion. Still have access to all of my pipes and electrical and if they were to get wet or dirty could just wash them off. Product arrived quickly and in great shape.
We purchased theses for a playroom and everyone commented how beautiful they look. They are easy to clean and install and give the room a clean and sophisticated finish. They were delivered within 3 days and were to easy to install. I would definitely buy again.
Was quoted 3800.00 for new ceiling . I did it all myself and replaced entires ceiling myself .for 800.00. With pro ceiling tiles. So easy to do and it looks so professionally done . One of the best companies I ever dealt with . I order tiles as I needed them with several small orders at a time because I didn't know exactly how many I needed . They shipped out in 2 days . I'm so pleased my basement is clean and fresh .. Thank you so much .. Best investment I ever made.
Orders came in quickly as promised! I like the fact you can order any amount you like, and if over $99 free shipping! Product reviews of this product were spot on - tile easy to work with, can cut with scissors. The material is very thin, but the look is great!
Easy to Install.
Very happy with our new ceiling tiles! Looks great and easy to install!
Looks so much nicer then the other ceiling tiles we had. Easy to install. Expensive but worth it as they should last without yellowing
Purchased this product for my basement. Looks great and always get comments on how nice it looks. Was short a couple of tiles on first purchase but it only took a couple of days to come to the house which was nice. Definitely recommend!
I have an older drop ceiling and was worried how these would look and fit. These look fantastic and the install was as so simple. Made me wish I had a bigger area to do.
Honestly both my installer and myself were doubtful when we saw how things and light they were. But they are beautiful. People want to know where I got them. They look expensive.
Durable product. Great as condensation or water leaks from pipes or hvac will not stain the tile. wipe it off and throw it back in the ceiling without replacement. Downside is that the tile do not seal the ceiling like other tiles due to their light weight. The tape recommended peels off and is not a permanent solution for the long haul. Still recommend the product as it will last much longer than other products.
Make the room look much bigger and brighter
The best thing about this ceiling tile is the price and the quick shipping. I got 120 tiles in 2 days. Totally transformed my basement game room. Great all purpose tile.
We priced this with our ceiling people who were SO much more expensive! This order came on time and the tiles were exactly as described and look beautiful. Would use again!
Looks smart and is easy to install
The product is ok. However keep in mind if your tiles are next to the main entrance they will blow out of the tgrid because they are extremely light weight. Also note any dust on the grid will cause the grid covering tape not to stick.
I get lots of comments from people about my ceiling. Everyone likes it
Tiles are very easy to work with. Would recommend this product. Proceiling is a great company. Ordering was easy and delivery was fast !
The tiles came by mail in one day!! I was amazed! They installed so easily and look great! I'm really pleased.
Shipping is excellent- thanks for the quickness of getting the product to us.
These take minutes to install and make a real difference to your old ceiling. Easy to cut for odd spaces too.
We are very impressed with the ceiling tiles we ordered. The materials look great and are affordable. We've been remodeling our high end design center and showroom, the tiles we ordered definitely give our showroom a look of elegance. We would highly recommend ProCeilingTiles.com to our partners and clientele.
We knew that the tiles are on the thin side because we ordered a sample. The thinness does make for an easier install. We did leave the old acoustical tiles in place and used these underneath. The overall look is quite beautiful. They have a real nice wood appearance. Any one who has seen them have complimented us. We can't wait to show the ceiling off during the upcoming holidays. Also, great customer service.
I spent a great deal of time researching before choosing ProCeilingTiles to replace my old ceiling. The lightness of the tiles concerned me a little. However when it came to installation, I was very grateful for that after struggling to remove the old standard ceiling tiles. And the final product is very impressive. Looks great! I love my ceilings (I replaced two). I did have a small issue but this Company has an outstanding customer service staff. They dealt with my concerns very quickly and in a very gracious manner. Would definitely purchase products from this Company again.
Huge improvement over the old dusty fiber panels that we had prior to installing these. Super easy to install. I heard some complain that these kink easily and I did not find this to be the case. I installed some 6" surface mount LED lights throughout the room, and even when I had to flex the panels over the j-boxes that held the lights, the panels maintained their shape and still looked great. In fact, the little bit of flexibility in these makes them easier to get into place in the grid compared to the old style tiles. Still have a bit of install to finish, but overall couldn't be happier. Definitely would recommend these.
We renovated our church lobby and wanted to update the celing tiles that were 20 years old I purchased these and they were easy to install and made the lobby look a lot better then just plain ceiling tiles Easy to cut we used sissors and a large paper cutter we had very simple I am going to do my own home with these next. I also want to purchase the stick on strips for the metal grids next
Easy to cut to size and install without breakage compared to traditional ceiling tiles. Appearance in room is cleaner and more elegant than the conventional fiber board tiles they replaced.
Fast delivery, easy to work with and finished ceiling looks great -
The tiles look great and we are happy with our purchase. They do not absorb sound so if you are looking for the positive effect that acoustical tiles provide, do not buy these. These are more aesthetically pleasing though :-)
We used those tiles for our large theater room. It looks rich and added nice value to the room. Very satisfied.
These have really helped clean up the look of a room where an older grid system and ceiling tiles were in bad shape. Really like the look. Very easy to install. These went into a small bathroom where there was a recessed lighting and a bathroom vent fan. In those locations I wish they were sturdier or more rigid to better fit and drop into the grid.
Made a great update to our basement ceiling.
The product was identical to the online picture. My tiles arrived on time. I am happy with my purchase. The above comments were my concern when I look online to purchase tiles. Therefore I give the company a five out of a five. Andrew
Very classy looking ceiling, with the tape on grid it matches perfect and gives it a custom look
Just as advertised - Good packaging
The ceiling tile is easy to cut and trim so we were able to do the project in one day. I especially liked the tape which matches the tile. My railing looked pretty bad, but the tape made it look like new...
Easily misshapend when installing or if the kids get too rough when throwing balls
I read a ton of reviews before buying this product and had the company send me samples so I kind of new what I was getting myself into but these shouldn't cost $6 a tile. They feel like they cost about $.06 a tile to make. With that said they are unique and relatively easy to install except around lights or vents because they are so light they couldn't support a fly. My biggest complaint about these is when you are done installing your grid and you go to put the tile up you will notice that they are so white that they make your white grid look off white and it totally ruins the look. So I had to order the tape at around $200. The tape install is time consuming and now, even though I followed the directions, I am constantly pushing pieces of tape back on the drop ceiling because it falls off over time. Very frustrating after all the time and money I spent on the ceiling.
While updating my kitchen I decided to replace the old ceiling tiles with a clean white tile, I also spray painted the current wood grain grid system to a white.....Wow A. these look awesome B. this was one of the easiest home projects that I have taken on, I only made one wrong cut and it was the first one. The hardest part was deciding which tile to order. My only wish is that I hadn't torn down the old drop ceilings in my living room and dining room these would have looked great throughout the house.
Looks great and easy to install.
Great product. Easy to measure and cut. I used it as a border tile. With Florentine in the center.
this product gives a much richer look to the ceiling over the standard ceiling tiles from the box stores
This is a very nice ceiling and so simple to put up. Everyone that has seen it,LOVES it and it becomes the hot topic for discussion. I'm happy with my order.
This tile worked great as a border because it fit close to the "L" wall molding. Since we simply overlapped the "T" bars at the wall molding we used magnets to hold the tile close to the metal wherever the tiles were bowing. Results were great!
Very fast delivery and very classy look!!
Was very easy to install, actually used my old tiles as insulation under then new ones.
Quality product that totally changed the look of the lower level of our house and consistently receives favorable comments. Easy to cut to size, easy to install, and easy to clean (if needed) with a damp cloth. A key factor in our selection was vinyl does not collect moisture thus does not create a mold issue in sub-terrain levels of a home. Proceilingtiles quickly shipped the product and our remodeling project was quickly finished. Superb choice!!
Tiles r light weight and easy to Install... great shipping and pricing.... no complaints.. tiles look great!
Love the product. Easy to use, and the company worked with me when FEDEX lost my package (FedEx did not work with me).
Easy to install. Looks great in our basement.
We ended up not using the ceiling tiles. They were cheap and flimsy.
I used these tiles in a finished basement. It totally transformed the room from a traditional finished basement to a classy sitting room.
Easy to cut with scissors and washable. Installing was a breeze. Looks great!
I had an outdated kitchen I was updating that had recessed florescent lights with drop in panels....they were old and mismatched. This panel freshened up the space and did the trick!
We finished our basement and put up a drywall ceiling except for the places where there was lots of pipes. We installed your ceiling tiles in the plumbing areas of the ceiling and they look great. They were easy to cut to fit around vents and doors.
The tiles were very light and not very sturdy. If the distance between adjacent supports was off just a little these would fall through. Once you understand how this stuff goes together you can compensate for this or adjust distances a little to help. After getting it all up - it does look a lot more professional than we expected. It is kind of a cheap tile but it does look good installed.
The tiles were easy to install and size. They could be cut to fit with scissors. I have gotten several comments on how great they look on my basement bathroom remodel. Friends what the information on the tiles and I was happy to give them my endorsement.
This was exactly what I thought it was and looks even better installed! What a great step up from my drop ceiling!
Easy to work with and great looking. A great value for the look.
Quick delivery, easy installation, looks great.
Items was as promised. Easy to cut and measure, easy to install. Looks great in my office
Had to have a drop ceiling in my basement. We wanted a better look than the standard tiles. WE used a combination of Madison in the center surrounded by Stratford to give a nice coffered look. We would definitely use them again. Even our contractor was impressed.
The tiles were easy to cut and install. No messy fibers etc. However we had a small leak above and the water made one tile bulge....fortunately it went back to shape but I am concerned that it is too thin. But so far so good.
My finished basement had old 2 x 4 acoustic tiles. They were very ugly and made the room look like an office building. I purchased 2 x 2 Stratford ceiling tiles and dividers to make the ceiling square. I retained the old ceiling tiles above the new ones. This allowed for noise deadening to the upstairs. The tiles are easy to work with and install. When cutting was necessary regular scissors did the trick. I also installed 2 x 2 LED lights that brightened the room as well. When my grown children saw the room for the first time they were amazed as to how good it looked They said it no longer looks like a basement. They were also surprised that their very un handy father could have done the job. Without doubt the resale value of my house increased much more than the cost of the tiles. I had other options as to where to buy the tiles as well. But the informative website and the customer service I received at Pro Ceilings was top notch. I took advantage of Pro Ceilings sample program and ordered several different styles and colors to see what looked best. When I ordered the samples and they were shipped the same day and I got and personal response from Julie in customer service, I knew this was the company I would order my tiles from. I couldn't be more pleased.
Very clean lines and elegant. Classic for any room. I used them for my kitchen and they look great.
The 2X2 tiles look great! They were very easy to install and cut to size. My family and friends think they make the room look great. Thanks
This is a great product and an extremely easy install.
These ceiling tiles are a great product and are very durable!! They cut very easy and you can clean them with a wet rag. They cut with scissors and make a mess when installing them. I would recommend them to everyone.
Hesitant at the thinness but they look incredible. Quick shipping.
Arrived quickly and easy to switch out. Makes a major difference in my little guest bathroom. Very easy to fit and cut.
These tiles look great in our basement. They're very easy to install. They can be cut with scissors. We've gotten tons of compliments on our recent remodel!
Quick delivery and quite simple install. Would buy again.
My husband and I bought this tile for our basement ceiling...we couldn't be happier with our purchase! The tile was very easy to work with and super light. We recommend this tile to anyone remodeling/finishing a room in their home!!!
Ordered tiles at a better price than anywhere had them within 4 days incredible will buy all my ceiling tiles here from now on
I like the product and would buy again over the standard tiles. However they seem over priced based on how thin and flimsy they are and how little material cost must be involved in manufacturing them. They do look good.
Love my new ceiling! Exceeded my expectations !
I'm not one to give reviews but these ceiling tiles are exactly what I had hoped for. Having a short ceiling basement i needed all the clearance I could get. Using these in conjunction with putting my grid as tight to my floor joists as possible made for a beautiful finished product. Very easy to install and cut. Only negative was working with the can lights to hold the trims but I was able to adjust the housing and trim so everything fit and looked perfect. I am hoping to use their "Big Sky" translucent tiles in the future to give my basement that extra "pop" and WOW with backlighting, just need to save up some more money or hope they lower the price of the tiles(hint, hint)! I would definently recommend these tiles to anyone, in fact I've been showing them off to everyone that walks in my basement!
This was my first purchase with Proceilingtiles.com. The product was delivered quickly as promised. I wasn't convinced I would like a plastic tile until I installed them. They look great and "the boss" is very happy. Easy to install, easy to trim and easy to clean. I like Easy!
We love our new ceiling tiles. Lightweight, easy to install. Love the cut of the tile it gives texture and elegance to the room. We've passed on the Proceiling tile website to all our friends.
This tile was very easy to install vs traditional ceiling tile. Just cut it with a pair of scissors. Looks good too
I used these for the edges in my movie theater. Easy to cut to size needed.
The tiles were a little thin, not what I was expecting but they were so easy to use. The grid tape over the old frame really brought the look to life. I love it!
We loved the product when installed. I was a little skeptical when we first took it out of the box. It is very thin. It was easy to cut and install. I would purchase it again.
Looks wonderful. Bought these to give a fresh new look to our fitness center. Great quality! Would buy again!
as ordered on time
great fast service
Looks great. I worried about the thickness and weight of the panels, but they hold in place and are very easy to install. Use a wood fold out ruler with the slide out on one end. It works better than a tape measure. White color is very white. The rails that hold the tiles up was USG brand from Home Depot. The color of the rails is white, but not the bright white as the tiles. Changing our screen porch to a sunroom and there is three different levels of ceiling, but the three levels look great. A good scissors cut the tiles very nicely.
Worked really good with suspended ceiling grid and also with CeilingLink direct mount grid system. Light weight tiles were easy to cut and install. Ready for flooring! All we talked to were very helpful.
We're so happy with the look of our basement ceiling. The Stratford was the best choice for us, because we wanted to leave the existing white fiberglass tiles in place to damped sound. These tiles fit over the existing tiles, perfectly and they give the room a warm, elegant look. Everyone who sees them comments on how gorgeous the ceiling looks.
Great to work with.
Install was easy and it looks great.
Came quickly and was very easy to install! Contractor was hesitant about them but was quickly converted and will recommend to others
My wife owns a salon and people are usually sitting or lying down looking up at the ceiling. We decided to use these tiles to cover the regular drop ceiling tiles. They were so easy to install and went in right under the current ceiling tiles - no need to remove the old ones which we wanted to keep for additional noise reduction. We have had numerous compliments on these tiles and how they change the look of the office. Very glad we purchased these.
These tiles were great. They arrived quickly, were a snap to put in and best of all look great!!
I am so happy with the translucent tiles I bought from Pro Ceiling Tiles. They replaced some old tiles in my kitchen that were close to 30 years old and have brought the kitchen into this century. I was concerned that enough light would not get through the tiles, but that is so not the case. The installation was about 15 minutes and most of that was climbing up and down the ladder and moving it. I did not have to cut the tiles to fit them into the grids; however, I can see where it would be so simple to do so if you had to. The customer service was great (thanks Julie) and I would definitely recommend (and have done so) both the company and the product to others. It made something dated and ugly into something striking and I am so happy with the results. Oh, did I say how happy I am...lol... Thanks Julie
Easy to work with. Basement ceiling came out great. Only trick was recessed lighting.
When recently finishing my basement my wife and I wanted something more then just the standard ceiling tile. We couldn't be happier with our choose. The ceiling is the first thing everyone notices! Julie from customer service was fantastic from start to finish answering all emails in a timely fashion!
This is one of the best products I have used. The installation is great.. we put crown molding with Led lights with 1"1/2 space and the ceiling looks stunning.
I am a 63yr old widow and I try to do everything myself. I had old ceiling tiles that I couldnt stand anymore. These tiles were so easy to install and make my livingroom look like a pro did it. I love the look and I would recommend this to anyone.
Quick processing, great product, easy up, great look. 1/2 price of other brands at Lowes, etc...
makes our room look great,getting lots comments on it. only fault can find is that I think if they were a little thicker they would be better.
What a difference these tiles make compared to the rough textured, yellowish, big box store tile. The tiles are easy to cut to fit and looks so much more elegant and not so obviously a faux ceiling. Definitely use the ProLITE tape if using an already installed grid. The expense to swap out the old with new tiles is very reasonable.
I was looking for an upgrade to the standard ceiling tiles in a home I just purchased. I went to the big box stores and bought some that were made of particle board. They looked OK but were hard to install and if wet would be ruined. I came across Pro-Ceiling Tiles, read all the positive reviews and bought them. They are absolutely terrific. They are easy to install, and transformed my basement. I absolutely will be purchasing more of these to complete other rooms in my basement. Friends and family that have seen them are amazed.
Our basement looks awesome. Very easy to install.
Everyone comments on our ceiling tiles!! They think we spent a fortune, of coarse we don't tell them any different!:)
This is my second project with them and every one comments on them. Great product and easy to clean
Our home was damaged by a tornado in May 2015. When we renovated we put in all new ceilings from Pro Ceiling Tiles and they are awesome. Every one loves our new ceilings.
We used these tiles as border with the Petal tiles and it worked perfectly -- we would not have thought about doing this without the advice from ProCeiling.
Replaced counter tops and added new LED lights in our kitchen. These worked perfectly to replace old white ceiling tiles,
We have had nothing but compliments on our new ceilings. Our house was tremendously damaged in a tornado May 2015. When renovating we put in all new ceilings and they are gorgeous. We could not be happier with our experience with Pro Ceiling Tiles.
My customer found your ceiling tiles on your web site. When she told me she wanted to use the Stratford Vinyl tile I advised her against them. I thought they were too thin and would not lay correctly and they were a cheap excuse for a ceiling tile. I advised her against using them. It is amazing how our ignorance hold us all back from a great decision. After installing the tiles I found out how easy they were to install, how that when there is only about two inches of room, they fit easily, and how great they look after the job is done, I am sold! I will be a customer for all my suspended ceiling work from now on.
We have old flourescent light fixtures and could not get the right size of plastic paneling to fit the opening, and cutting it proved to be non productive. So we ordered these tiles close to the sizes we needed....they were amazingly easy to cut, they fit into our ceiling's unusual openings and give the kitchen a truly updated look. Thank you for making these so wonderful to cut, measure and transparent for ceiling lights.
It looks great in the basement and it was super easy to work with. We absolutely love it.
they do not touch ceiling track very well .bow out 1/8 in the middle at all 4 sides of the each tile. stay away
The tiles were great and the price was right. I used these in my basement.
I bought these tiles for my basement. It makes the room look so warm and cozy. It was easy to install.
Over the years, the old ceiling tile had yellowed so much the room looked dark. I read all the reviews and watched all the videos before deciding on the Stratford. Shipping was super fast and installation, under the old tiles, was simple. Installation advice: 1. If you have a choice, go with the 2x2 tiles instead of the 2x4's, even if you have to install new dividers. I used one size in one room and the other in a 2nd room. Both look great, but the 2x2's were so much easier to handle. Less floppy and easier to maneuver. 2. Get the grid tape. Don't even think about painting the t-bars, just get the tape. Trust the on-line calculator. 3. The only tools you need are a yardstick, pencil, and scissors. And a stepladder. 4. Use drop cloths. There are unpleasant surprises above the old ceiling tiles. Even if you leave them in place, you'll kick up a lot of dust. 5. Take before and after pictures. 6. Replace the lighting panels at the same time. I used the translucent Stratford tiles. Although they don't let as much light pass as the big box acrylic sheets, the bright white of the rest of the ceiling bounces more light around and the room is brighter overall. 7. I used white gloss spray paint on the ceiling air registers, an exhaust fan, and a smoke detector cover. Good match. 8. My ceilings had very little headroom, so I removed one old panel, installed the Stratford, then slid the adjoining old panel on top of the new one and worked my way around the room. 9. Keep a scrap of tile to show your admiring family because they're not going to believe how thin they are.
Here's the deal with these tiles . . they are *super* thin. So this is both good and bad. It's bad if you are planning on using these alone with no insulation behind them. They have 0 insulating and 0 noise reduction. OTOH, it's good that they are so thin because it makes them VERY easy to cut and put up. Though although they are flexible, still be a little careful because they can crease if you mash them into place. I found that the easiest way to put these up is to cut off the outside lip and then slide them in under the existing acoustic tiles. This approach has a number of advantages 1. don't have to take down and dispose of old tiles 2. despite cutting each tile it still saves a TON of time 3. retains the acoustic and insulation properties of the old ties and 4. adds weight to the new tiles so that aren't gaps where they rest on the grid. With this approach it took me just a couple of hours to do a pretty large basement. One word of advice, my ceiling is kinda low and, once all of the tiles are up, it is *very* busy. All that pattern makes the ceiling feel even lower. So definitely get 4 of the same sample tiles and try them out first to make sure that you like it. I think I would have preferred something much simpler. That said, it's much better than the old tiles and everyone loves them.
We had a very positive experience with Pro Ceiling Tiles from receiving samples to fast shipping and extraordinary customer service. The product is affordable and looks like it wouldn't be once installed! Excellent all around- highly recommend.
Easy to install, lays flat unless next to a closely slanted wall. Looks great.
I had very low headroom and needed a ceiling the would have a close fit. This ceiling worked great and looks wonderful. It has a very nice look. It finished off my basement nicely
Everything was great! Will purchase from you again!
I'm very pleased with the ceiling tiles I ordered. They were very easy to install and have improved the look of my little room quite nicely. Thank you!
Just what I was looking for to replace old tiles in a kitchen light fixture. Very pleased with the quick shipping and the new look in my kitchen.
Replaced an old acoustic tile ceiling with the Pro Ceiling Stratford in my basement bar room and the transformation was dramatic. They added a dimensional look that really looks professional. As advertised, they are quite thin and light, which makes them easy to cut and install. Very satisfied.
This is the third ceiling I have replaced on my own and the first time using this product. By far the easiest! Easy to cut and install and looks great. Before installing take the time to make sure your entire grid is square (or as close to square as possible). Being off a little could have a huge impact on the other side of the room. If there is a tile that almost fits but won't fall into place, use a vacuum to suck the tile into position. If installing with a ceiling fan that blows up (during winter use) an easy tip to keep the tiles in place is using Neodymium Rare-Earth Magnets from Home Depot. Place these magnets on top of the tile in the corners and/or along the edge to secure the tile to the grid. This will prevent the tile from flapping when the fan is in use.
Easy to install using our old grids (spray painted them before installing). These tiles are light and tend to raise when the door is opened and closed so we left the old tiles in on top of these. We had already expected it to happen so it wasn't a disappointment. Economical way to freshen up an old ceiling. Pro ceilings shipped fast with great communication! Would buy from again!
I was a little concerned ordering online but was reassured when I received the samples. We have received so many compliments on our new ceiling. I like that you could cut with a scissors and this design works with all the edges. I didn't like some designs that require a flat tile for the edges. This is also important considering we has 12 canned lights. There is a reason this is your best seller.
We used these these in our basement, With all the work we did (including a fabulous bar!) the first thing most people noticed, was our ceiling! Pro Ceiling Tiles ships quick and the product is SIMPLE to cut and install, most importantly, the end result is, they look great!
We used this product to refinish our basement. It was easy to use and they look great! The reason for 4 stars is because there is no insulation or durability to them because they are so lightweight, so there is no sound reduction between floors at all. The company is absolutely fabulous to work with and has called/emailed several times to check in.
Very easy to install and cut. Looks great
I used the ceiling tiles in my basement and am amazed at how much it has improved the looks as well as the value of my house. The installation of the tiles was very easy. I had canlights
found tiles to much much thinner than I imagined, installed a few and they have a certain amount of strength to them. I did a 20 x 30 room replacement. took out 2x4 and put in 2x2, painted the rails black, all in about 8 hrs
We are giving the ceiling tile a 4 out of 5 ONLY because we have yet to install it . We must purchase the grid first. The tiles look great and the flexibility appears to be something fairly simple to install and durable. The color was exactly as we imagined. We can't wait to pull our room all together with this awesome ceiling. Everyone loves the color as much as we do. The price was a fair price for all of the tile we purchased and was delivered quickly. Very helpful and informative customer service . Really pleased so far ......... :)
The tiles look great, were very easy to install and the cost is relatively inexpensive; a little harder to cut edge tiles than flat profile tiles, but worth it for the improved appearance
In short basement hight basements you need only 2 .5 inches from the bottom of what ever is hanging down . ( flexible )
Was very happy with this product. Price was great compared to the standard ceiling tile. Quality of product is excellent. Would definitely recommend this online site. Was also delivered very quickly. Thank you for your wonderful company.
This product gives our room a custom look, family/friends like the new look and says it look professionally done!!!!
These tiles are wondeful. We changed our standard 'board' ceiling tiles to these Stratford Tiles. They immediately improve the look of the room. They are easy to install and easily cut to size with shears or good scissors. The only issue is that they are not sound proof. We get unsolicited compliments on our new celilings regularly. Only 2 things to think about. These tiles do not insulate sound like the board tiles. I ended up laying the old board tiles on top of these tiles to provide sound proofing. If you don't need sound insulation, then this is a 5 star product. The only other minor issue is that we had to also place the old tiles on top of these tiles in a small bathroom. In a small room, the increased air pressure from closing the door in a small room could push the tiles near the door up.
Our sunroom looks great with these tiles, it made the room look bigger!
Looks nice, probably would buy a thicker product next time That's my bad,I read the specs
In respect to cutting and getting into the opening, the thinnest made it easier to work with. However, because of the thinness some of them had to be weighted down to keep from buckling up.
Product was delivered on time and with no issue. Installation was easy, quick and with no mess. Ceiling looks high end, price was well worth it! Also purchased adhesive strips and installed with no issue
I was surprised they are very thin and I thought oh wasted money. I still put them up because I had them and had two other regular styles up trying to figure out what I really liked. After installing all of the Stratford tiles the room looked wonderful. Then I installed the decorative grip strips and it don't even look like a drop ceiling any more. Highly recommend this.
Tiles are very nice, makes the room pop
We used this and the matching grid tape. The tiles were more copper than bronze but still look wonderful. They are super easy to trim and fit for the lights. They also provide more sound deadening than I has thought being as thin as they are.
The ceiling looks great and was very easy to install. There were two issues. I was told to just order any regular ceiling grid. I got the Armstrong grid and it was definitely a different white. The grid looked very dingy next to the bright white tiles. I had to have the entire grid painted. Also, the tiles are so light weight that they did not sit down in the grids very well by themselves so I ended up putting regular fiberboard ceiling tiles on top of them to hold them in place. Overall great finished look but much more complicated installation than I expected.
Great product easy to install looks great.
I was finishing a basement room with a 7 1/2 foot ceiling, so I wanted as much clearance as possible. Having this system attaching directly was just the answer. It is so easy to cut, and with none of the mess of standard ceiling tiles. It has a beautiful finished look, and it was simple to put recessed lighting in. I am extremely happy with this!
The tile arrived promptly and was simple to install. We left the original tile (Armstrong) on top of the new. Really brightened the room up. We have received positive comments on the new ceiling.
my waiting room looks so elegant, and the stratford ceiling tile was part of the whole puzzle.
Very Easy to work with. My wife and I installed the entire basement in a couple of days.
Using this in our basemen with the Westminster. Overall turned out great. Everyone who comes over loves it. The only thing I don't love about the tiles is that around the edges, any tiles that have to be cut, it is recommended to use a flatter tile (Stratford). This works fine but it is noticeable and doesn't look as nice on the edges. I wish there was a better solution. If your ceiling is perfectly sized to not have to cute any tiles, it would be amazing to use all Westminster.
The product cuts and installs nicely, but it looks a little cheap looking. Also, the panels are very light, and when the door is opened suddenly, the ceiling panels lift and settle back down in the grid system from the change in air pressure of the room.
GLAD I TOOK YOUR ADVICE AND USED THESE FOR THE EDGES I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT YOUR PRODUCT THESE TILES LOCK INTO THE GRID NO FLY AWAYS
We recently moved into an older home that needs some TLC. The basement was one of these areas. The guest bedroom in the basement had the foam tiles in the ceiling that were browning and had holes in them. The ceiling was too low to drywall so we found these ceiling tiles that were just the thing to transform the room into a more inviting place to stay. They were super easy to install and even easier to clean. I am thrilled with our choice to use these and would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a quick, money saving update for any room in their home.
The Stratford was an excellent option for us in our basement. I cannot stand traditional drop ceiling tiles but wanted ability to access if necessary. We used a product called 'ceilinglink' for the track and that was a very time consuming product to use but these tiles went in great, easy to cut, and flexible where we had complicated corners. Will recommend to others as inquiries are posed! Thanks ProCeilingTiles.
Product is best
You guys have been great to deal with! Your product has been outstanding for our company. I have been painting them with copper spray paint, and putting them in a black grid work. People can't tell that they are PVC tiles. I will be ordering a lot more of these from you as our restaurant chain continues to expand. Again, GREAT PRODUCT!!
Made the room look great. Easy to install and cut where needed.
Adds lots of details to what could be just another drop ceiling. Very pleased with results.
The tiles were very easy to trim with scissors and I was done in 8 hours. Looking good! Love to cook on high heat for grilling and the panels have worked great in my kitchen. I am over 70 and female and enjoying life.
Good product with nice look but way overpriced for thin piece of plastic.
looks great with our Westminster ceiling tile. we got this, as recommended, for our side pieces that needed to be cut to fit and they go well with the Westminster tile. Between this tile and the Westminster tile for the whole squares, we'd still go with the Westminster because of the added depth they bring, it really takes it to the next level! but if you have to cut pieces, this is a great tile :) Easy to cut and rcvd very fast!!
Changing to these tiles has made the finished basement appear larger and much more modern. Installation was a breeze as cutting tiles to size only required a pair of scissors.
It looks great and is easy to install.
We replaced the old acoustic tiles with these tiles and improved the look of our store tenfold. The building is from the 1800's and these tiles look much nicet than the old drop ceiling tiles. They enhance the appearance of the room giving it a cleaner and more expansive look.
My customer had picked these "tiles" and I was reluctant to use them. Had we knew they were flimsy plastic impressions, I would never have purchased them. This product might be great for residential use, but as far as commercial use they are not. I am now left with an order I cannot use or return.
The stratford tile adds class and style to our room in an affordable way. It's way more impressive than your average ceiling tile. Easy to use as well.
The tiles were easy to install and look great. Everyone who has looked at the tiles are impressed by their appearance.
These are the easiest tiles to install that you will ever find. Durable, bendable, cuttable. So easy, a child could install.
We recently finished our basement. Wanting it to look like an extension of our home, I didn't want celotex tiles. I found these tiles and they look fantastic. The ceiling is absolutely. the first comment we get from family and friends. Everyone wants to know where we got them! The local home improvement store had a similar tile for $3.50 more a tile! So happy with the way it turned out. It truly adds to the beauty of our rooms.
My office looks more upscale and professional.
Changed out the fiber ceiling tiles that sag from the humidity in garages. These tiles were easy to install and really enhanced our garage remodel.
I installed the ceiling tile in my basement which is finished as a family room. We had installed acoustic tile when we built the house, and I was never happy with the way it looked. The new tiles look great. No one realizes they are vinyl.
I think most people area bit jealous because I canget to my pipes if necessary. Thet allhave drywall so they have to rip it down if fixing a leak.
When we were renovating our new home, I wanted something totally different for the drop down ceiling besides the typical "ugly" foam board ceiling tiles. I searched online and came across Pro Ceiling Tiles. WE LOVE THEM! They are extremely easy to cut to size and install. The look is fantastic and very classy. Everyone who has a drop down ceiling somewhere in their house and sees these wants to know where I got them from. I love having different distinctive looking designs and items in our house, and these fit right in. You cannot go wrong with these ceiling tiles.
Installed these tiles in our showroom of a local funeral home. Look great easy to install cut with scissors. The price was very competitive shipping was swift and the product was in perfect condition. Highly recommend.
These look awesome installed. My only complaint is that one box received had damage which caused the tiles to crack in the corners. I used these as my pieces to cut to fit along the edges. I used regular scissors to cut these, and I am impressed by how light they are. I do think they are worth the cost based on the end result.
put these tiles in a kitchen we were doing for my daughter in a remodel with a bathroom over the kitchen, she wanted drywall I said if we ever have a problem it will be a nightmare tearing out the ceiling if we use these tiles it will be a piece of cake. I said trust me and she said ok. She said she had never seen anything like that before and everybody who comes in compliments her on the ceiling. Home run for dad. Thanks for a great product fast shipping and decent prices.
We had white amrstrong single raised tiles in our basement. Due to high humidity in some parts of basement, they tend to sack from middle and get dirty. I was skeptical about the eight of Stratford Vinyl but they were okay to fit in the grid. That is the reason, I gave one less star. The looks are awesome, easy to clean and install.
Customer service rep noticed our order would not necessarily look good with our configuration, called to let us know, and managed to switch our order to something that would look better given our irregularly shaped basement ceiling. They look great! Relatively easy to install (well, difficult, but not because of the product, because our ceiling is a mess) and easy to maintain. Had a leaking pipe and were able to pop out the tiles no problem - they have a slight bend to them, so they work really well with the low-clearance drop system we used. Gives our basement a clean, finished look. Would definitely order from them again.
Never liked the idea of a drop ceiling until now. A game changer!
We purchased this product to use in our converted basement. It was so easy to work with...light weight...easy to cut. Right after we finished, our oil burner mal functioned and left some black soot on a couple of the tiles. They cleaned up so easily...any other product would have to have been replaced with new tiles. Fantastic looking...everyone loves the look! I'd definitely order again if needed for another project.
These ceiling tiles were chosen for our newly constructed wine bar
I bought ceiling tile last year from ProCeiling, I had a good experience, very good customer service and attention, good product must of all when you needs theme, they're there for you customer services and management, they do pay a lot of attention to customer questions and problems...highly recommended you wont regret it.
look like wood panels
They looked very good, were easy to install, easy to cut, easy to wash, etc. My only complaint is that they are so light-weight, when you open the door to the room we installed them in, they fly up and "crash" down. Not loud, but it's still there. They also have no sound dampening it seems. Either way, I will be buying more when we finish the basement.
These are not your everyday looking tiles! We recently put in a theater room in our basement and we wanted a tile with an elegant look. I cannot tell you how many compliments we have had on the tiles. Several people have said it is their favorite part of the room. The tiles are very thin (they remind me of the plastic molds you can make candy in). I would not recommend them if you are wanting strong sound deadening. We actually put traditional corkboard tiles above them so we would get better acoustics in the room. This was more pricey, but it accomplished our goal and the final look is amazing.
Doing a remodel in gift shop the ceiling tiles are affordable and look great. Delivery was excellent, I would highly recommend
We are very happy with this product
They completely changed the look of the entire shop. Great investment. Super quick shipping. 5 stars all the way!
Put these tiles in my drop ceiling in the basement and it turned out beautiful! That is the first thing people notice when they come down the steps. Many compliments.
removed old 2x4 panels and installed these looks like a different room if doing a small room with a active door they will lift if door is opened and closed quick so you might want to weight them down or put a screw thru them from above.
had a great experience with Pro Ceiling Tiles. i was a bit worried ordering online because i woudln't see or feel the product. they came quickly as promised and were very high quality. i also made an ordering mistake in terms of quantity and needed to add more to the order. they easily rectified this and shipped out the full quantity. i finally finished the media room and my wife is happy again! lol
These are great ceiling tiles! They look so expensive in our theater room that we did by ourselves. We put them in and then they got dusty when we were finishing construction and I just took them in the driveway and hosed them down. Worked perfect. Very happy.
The problem with these tiles is the material is much too thin and light and also the price is much too high for what you get. When a door is open and closed in a room or if placed above a ceiling fan they bounce a bit. I had to cut out inserts of 1/8' fiber board that would fit inside to weight them down a little too eliminate movement and be able to turn ceiling fan on full setting. I would not buy again because of this reason only. If product was made thicker and heavier at same cost it would be worth it.
I installed these tiles in my basement. They were extremely easy to install and cut to size. My friends and family are very impressed with the way they look. I used canned lighting and it was real easy to cut the circle holes and install the trim. I have not had to clean any of the tiles but if they do get dirty it looks like they will just wipe clean. For anybody that wants a classy looking drop ceiling tile I certainly recommend this one.
Purchased for our home theater room and I think they look great and the wife loves them too! Some of my friends and family actually thought they were the expensive wood tiles. I would definitely use them again.
We had low ceilings in the basement and the flexibility of these tiles allowed us to maximize the height of the ceiling. They also look great.
Couldn't be happier with the finish! Looks great
Looks great, easy to install. I already had a drop ceiling in place. I left the tiles that were there, and just placed these underneath. AMAZING transformation.
These tiles fit perfectly. Cuts were easily made with household scissors. Wipes off and cleans up nice!!
This product is great to use, easy to handle and gives the room the look we wanted. Easy to install, little mess if any at all. Light weight. Will purchase in the future, we love it.
This is the second room I've done with the vinyl ceiling tiles. I've fond the tiles to be very easy to install and looks great!
I was so impressed with the customer support. I'd never attempted to install ANYTHING like this and I had to call twice with questions - both customer service reps were patient and very helpful. Everyone things the tiles are made of wood!
Product looks good coming out of the box! Material is lighter than I thought it would be, wind could be a real problem, even opening a door quickly will cause the tiles to move if the room is almost air tight. Static electricity causes us problems with fine dirt sticking to the tiles.
