Why is restoring your acoustical ceiling better than replacing it

Restoring acoustical ceiling image

Acoustic ceilings help to dampen noises, particularly in case of multiple floors. Since it can be laid very quickly, it helps the businesses to save a lot of time, otherwise required for laying other ceilings. A further acoustic ceiling bolsters their interiors by better light reflectance (which in turn reduces the use of electric lights) and higher life expectancy (which reduces the maintenance overhead for the business head).

But what do you do when your acoustic ceiling is damaged? Is replacement always the best option? When it comes to dealing with aged/discolored acoustical ceilings, the answer may surprise you.

Compared to new tiles, and assuming the right product is used, a restored acoustical ceiling has:

  • Improved acoustics
  • Better light reflectance and color retention
  • Greater life expectancy

Building owners no longer need to spend a lot of time and money to replace their ceilings. Retail store remodeling is typically completed between closing time (10 pm) and the morning arrival of store personnel (as early as 6 am). When removing and replacing acoustical ceilings, that envelope of time is seldom adequate to do more than one section per night, until the project is completed.

In contrast, ceiling restoration offers:


It is common, in fully merchandised facilities, to restore 8 – 12,000 square feet of ceilings in one night, during that envelope of time described above. Larger contractors have been known to complete as much as 20,000 square feet in one night.


The application of an acoustical coating results in a like-new finish that improves light reflectance and presents the option of designer colors.


Even in the case of inexpensive 2’x4’ fissure tiles, ceiling restoration typically runs less than one-half of the cost of tile replacement and offers the advantage of refinishing the t-bar system and air diffusers at the same time with no additional expense.


By recycling, the old ceiling, solid waste disposal is avoided as well as its related cost.
