There are 2 bulkheads. It's in my basement 550 sq feet. It's just to install main grid side grid and tiles. No lights or cutting tiles for lights. My basement ceiling is open and was just insulated.

I just want to know the going rate for 2 guys to come install it. I bought all the needed materials yesterday.

Ball park is $1000 plus or minus. If it is straight forward and reasonably easy access, you should be in the $1000 range. If there are walls, vents, light fixtures or other items to contend with, expect to pay more.

We charge about 2.00 per square foot. but that is on commercial sites.

We always install drywall cielings in basements.

Hope that helps.
