An Acoustic Ceiling For Your House
An acoustic ceiling were extremely popular in new construction during the 1970s and 1980s. Interior designers seeking an affordable method to lower the height of a modern room and also deaden ambient noise developed acoustic ceilings. A gridwork of metal strips is hung from the room’s true ceiling and individual panels of sound-absorbing material are dropped into the sections. Heating and cooling ducts can also be hidden behind these ceilings, along with unsightly wires for overhead lighting and pipes for plumbing fixtures. Many homeowners hired specially-trained contractors to remove the older acoustic ceilings from their homes. Some restored the ceilings to their original dimensions, while others selected other panels without asbestos. The typical ‘popcorn’ textured ceilings also fell out of style with the advent of more stylized paneling.
An acoustic ceiling do help to dampen noises between floors and they can be painted to match the decor of the room. One drawback with traditional acoustic ceilings is water stains from roof leaks. The pooling water can create a buckled appearance or cause an individual panel to fall out unexpectedly. Dried water stains can be very unsightly, but treatment with bleach or a special acoustic panel restorative can help. Replacing an individual panel in this type of ceiling is not especially difficult, so homeowners can always change from a stucco finish to one with sparkles or a rough appearance.

Many homeowners have had the experience of being in a room that simply sounds empty. Often, especially with hard surface flooring such as concrete, ceramic tile, or concrete, sound bounces from wall to wall and ceiling to floor creating an echoing sound that is far less homey than most people enjoy. Instead of covering up a floor with carpet, some homeowners have found a solution to this problem by installing acoustic ceilings or popcorn ceilings.Label: ceiling pictures, ceiling designs, ceiling images, acoustic ceiling design, acoustic ceiling, .
