What should you expect from a ceiling project?

Expect a mess whenever drywall is involved in a remodeling project! Hire a contractor if you wish to fix a buckling or sagging ceiling, scrape away existing ceiling 'popcorn', or remove and replace the ceiling in your home.

Choose a product (plank, drywall, tile, or panel) based on your contractor's recommendations. A simple ceiling project shouldn't take more than a couple days to complete.

How much does a ceiling project cost?

This project depends on the scope and materials used for the ceiling. Sometimes your contractor will give you a flat rate for the project. Bear in mind that the project costs will increase if your contractor runs into surprises along the way (i.e. water damage, mold, asbestos). General prices are as follows:

  • Drywall installation labour: $1.00 - $3.00/ft2
  • Drop ceiling and ceiling tile labour: $2.00 - $6.00/ft2
  • Carpenter labour (for plank ceilings): $40 – $65/hour

Is this a DIY project?

Although it seems simple enough, always remember that taking on a ceiling project by yourself can be very difficult. It's incredibly difficult to work with your arms above your head. Don't underestimate it!

Those with little DIY experience will run into challenges with cutting, measuring, and planning the project. Some homeowners can manage to install a drop ceiling on their own, although it is challenging.

Additional tips

If you find mold on your ceiling then you should consider removing and replacing the whole ceiling. It may be a good idea to call a mold remediator to inspect and treat the area in your home.

If your home was built before 1990 then you should hire an asbestos remediation company to inspect the ceiling before tampering with it—especially if there is ‘popcorn' on the ceiling.
