It all depends on the project. If it is an open basement and 8 ft ceilings without obstacles and onle a few light fixture, ... it's is a lot less than a higher ceiling with heating ducts, etc.

In my area I would charge by the hour or base an estimate on how long I think it would take. I charge $45/hr. Ball bark figure for an experienced installer and an average sized "normal" basement would be $500.

Hope this helps.

Depends on the square footage being built and the height. Typically we price base on the job as each can be unique.

A majority of commercial jobs use a base tile and 2 x 4 grid. Because most commercial units are pretty square and open a supply and install price of $6-$9 is common. Many people are wanting to do a t-bar ceiling in their basements. The price will usually remain the same but the use of a nicer, more residential look tile is recommended. Depending on the tile, the installation price will increase slightly, along with the tile cost.
