Answer . Possibly, you should cut a hole into the ceiling and let the remaining water out. If it all dries out (use fans or other ventilation), then you just need to repair the hole. Use kilz under the paint to cover the marks caused by the leakage. If the water was not clean, it might be bes…t to remove the wet ceiling and replace the wallboard so that you do not develop mold or other problems. (MORE)
Based on my data there is a varying amount of holes in a ceiling tile but the average number is: 5162
Should a shower curtain be placed at ceiling height or at tile height if tile does not extend up to ceiling?
The purpose of a shower curtain is to contain water - keeping it off the floor and the wall, especially if it is not covered in a waterproof surface material. One important factor in hanging the curtain is the height of the people showering. A tall person whose head is closer to the shower head wi…ll put a lot more water up and out of the shower enclosure than a shorter person. In the planning stages of a plumbing project, you can place the shower head higher than normal (nice for us tall folks, anyway) to minimize spray deflection. But if this is a case of a new curtain rod only, take note of where droplets remain after you shower, and plan to place the curtain rod where it will deflect the spray. This is unfair on taller people, however, as standard shower curtains can only be raised so far before they let water out the bottom! Perhaps you'll need to buy or make an extra-long curtain; maybe add coordinating fabric to the top or bottom of a standard curtain. If height is not an issue, hang a curtain liner on the rod and hold it up over the tub; the bottom of the liner should fall securely into the tub, but not lie on the bottom. Mark the bracket position and be sure to hang the rod level. Remember to keep close watch on the painted surfaces inside the shower enclosure: if your tile stops short of the spray-line, you'll be repainting more often to keep moisture out of the drywall. It is always a good practice to wipe walls after showering, to keep nasty things like mold and mildew at bay. Even the best latex paint is no match for standing water, and you certainly don't want your drywall compromised. Good luck! Jill Murtagh, Murtagh Interiors (MORE)
i got it dude but i pretty much didnt know what the answer was .peace out
Whatever the lxw of a single tile is ,divide that into the lxw of the room.
Yes.... But if the tile is glazed and/or the grout is epoxy (unlikely unless in a commercial building) these do NOT need to be sealed (neither will absorb water so they won't accept the sealer). The rule of thumb is to put a few drops of water on the tile and the grout, if it soaks in within 30 seco…nds it needs to be sealed. Never use a topical sealer. Always use a waterbased PENETRATING sealer. You will need to reapply bi-yearly or yearly in most situations, more if the tile is exposed to water. Hope this helps.......... (MORE)
You have two options. You can purchase 24" cross pieces for your grid, to turn the 2X4 sections into 2X2 sections, or you can purchase 2X4 tiles that look like 2X2 tiles. Ceilume's Stratford Style is a good example.
We installed a drop cieling last spring. No problems then the humid weather came. Now a nasty smell has arisen which I determined was the ceiling tiles. Have you found anything more on this? I noticed noone has answered this question. Had the same problem, called the company they said I should have… read the directions that the tiles must be removed from the carton and laid out in the room for 24 hours before installing.....they told us to remove some of the tiles around the room place fans in the ceiling to circulate the air above the tiles... the smell is really bad, and I also asked around to others who have done drop ceilings in their basements and they have never heard of this problem before.....makes me think what the hell is in these tiles 7/4/09 Well, I have a bad odor coming from my Armstrong tile also and the tile have been installed since Oct. 2008. I have been looking for the source the smell for a few weeks now and just determined that it is the tile. It seems to be getting worse, not better as you might think. I don't think any more time airing out is the answer. I agree with the statement "what the hell is in these tiles"? Are these things from China? Not sure just what my next step will be but Armstrong will be on the list. 7/05/2009 I to have just installed a drop ceiling my wife keeps asking what is that smell and after you have been down there awhile you do not notice it as much but when you first go down you can really smell it. I want to know what is going on . Has anyone called Armstrong and gotten a different answer. I had my tiles in my basement for 3 days before installing that can not be the answer. I also purchased from home depot did anyone else buy them there? 7/5/09 I am responsible for the 7/4/09 post. Yes, I got them from Home Depot and I have sent an Email to Armstrong and requested (1) a reason for the smell and (2) a proposed fix. Its true that at first, on going to the basement you notice the odor more than when you have been there awhile. AND my installation was in Oct. 2008! I don't need any more airing out. manco-capac There was a problem with sheet rock from China during the building boom...18-24 months ago. The sheet rock is now turning black with mold around the US and there are some class action suits around. Perhaps that is the problem with the tile too. Poor materials. The odor comes from the manufacturing process and is sometimes caused by butyric acid. Although it may be strong, it's doubtful the level of vapors coming off the tiles is not harmful, just a nuisance. Airing the tiles out is the answer usually given by the manufacturers. You could try returning them to the retailer and asking for different ones from a different production run/batch. 9/3/09 We had been going crazy trying to figure out the odor in our new rec room and we are glad that we found this site. I also installed Armstrong ceiling tiles purchased from Lowes. We also have bad odors coming from them which gives my wife headaches (this has caused her many problems with migraine headaches and she can't tolerate the use the of basement. You can smell this as soon as you reach the bottom of the stairs. As to airing out the basement we have been airing it it since we installed it in 2008 and it still smells! For the longest time we could not figure this out and have been using room deodorizers. We also have a air conditioning unit with a humistat (this keeps the humidity down) and this still does not work. We have taken out tiles to circulate air/fans nothing works. Has anyone had any satisfaction with Armstrong over this? smconst 9/3/09 I entered the 7/4 & 7/5 posts and I did the same airing out suggested by Armstrong as smconst. I returned the tile to Lowes by working with a great gal in their RTM dept. (As Armstrong does not deal with individuals, I had to work thru the local Lowes.) Per directions from Armstrong to Lowes, I had to return all of the old tiles ( which were bought in June 2008) to Lowes yesterday. The gal from Lowes called me today and said that Armstrong will mail a check to me today for the full purchase price. The check is in the mail! Hold your breath! I was going to buy the same 918 Pebblebrook tile from Lowes as a identical replacement BUT I cut a slit in the plastic on the backside of a new box of this tile and stuck my nose against the tile and wow! The same rotten smell! I looked at USG tile at Home Depot today and NO smell. We really should be discusing this in the "Discussion" tab on this site manco-capac (MORE)
Answer . Ceramic tile should be cut with a wet saw, or with a tile scoring tool. It is not necessary to wet the tile in either case, as the wet saw will cool the blade and the scoring tool has no blade to cool.
Ceiling fans are a good idea because they help to circulate air. Inthe summer they can be adjusted to circulate the room air down. Inthe winter they can be adjusted to circulate the room air up.

Recording Studios often have acoustically absorptive materials on surfaces like the ceilings, walls and floors, to reduce the noise reflections off these surfaces, so that the recorded noises are only those received directly from the source. (Eg. A person talking has their voice recorded via a mic…rophone, but not the reflected noise or echo, which might blur the clarity of their speech. Some recordings are deliberately made in acoustically reflective spaces which are called "acoustically live", as compared with "acoustically dead" to give a more rounded sound. (MORE)
Soft surfaces may dampen the reflection of sound waves, but soft tiles are not the only way to improve the sound performance of a surface. The shape of the surface, thickness of the material, and material type are all important.
The more holes in the tile the better the acoustic properties of the tile. If the tile has lots of holes it will absorb sound better and prevent reverberation within the room. if the tile is smooth it will not absorb the sound and it will bounce back and cause an echo.
Multiply the length by the width. To find the minimum number of tiles to cover an area, divide thetotal area by the area of one tile. (This is straightforward when tiles are 1 foot square.)
Installing ceiling tiles requires a few simple tools. Specifically wire cutters, yard stick, a level, an exacto knife and ceiling tile brackets. The wires are suspended from joists and then the brackets are leveled to a predetermined height. The wires are spaced by using the yard stick measurements …and by using a level. After the brackets are installed, and fastened, the ceiling tiles are put in place. Some may have to be cut to size. (MORE)

i don't know, my best guess is it has something to do with the humidity in the atmosphere, wet areas have water molecules in the air, and we all know that water is a conductor of electricity so maybe the presence of them amplify the signal from the Networks towers

It just depends on why you have a roof leak. If your roof was damaged by a covered peril such as fire lightning etc. Then your Homeowners insurance would cover the damage. If your roof is old and worn out, it just needs to be replaced and would not be covered by your homeowners insurance. Roof…s require the home owners maintenance and upkeep along with replacement every 20 years or so. It's just part of the cost of owning a home. Failure to engage in expected normal maintenance of your home can be interpreted as a moral hazard and can result in cancellation of your homes insurance policy. If your roof is fairly new and you just have a leak with no visible damage, then it is most likely the result of faulty workmanship and again, not covered by your home insurance policy. (MORE)

Sheet rock screws. Alternative: If you have a hole in your ceiling and want to fix it you use a piece of wood to hold a piece of Sheetrock which you will finish with plaster or joint compound. You would cut a piece of wood more narrow than the hole and longer than the hole. Put the wood in…to the hole so it cannot fall out. Cut a piece of Sheetrock to about match the hole and screw the new piece of Sheetrock to the wood. Use joint compound to give the repair a finished look. If you simply put joint compound into the hole it will crack and take many coats. Paint. (MORE)

57-60 ceiling tiles measuring 2'x4 would cover a 15'x30' ceiling. For the least amount of trimming, place 4 tiles at 4' (trimming 1') for a total of 15'. For the 30' side, it would take 15 tiles at 2' each for a total of 30'. 4 tiles wide x 15 tiles long = a total of 60 tiles. To use the minimu…m number of tiles, one could run the tiles the opposite direction, although this would involve more trimming. In this case, place 8 tiles at 4' (trimming 2' total) for a total of 30'. For the 15' side, place 8 tiles at 2' (trimming 1' total) for a total of 15'. If the cuts were precise, the end tiles (cut in half) could each be figured as 1/2, for a total of 57 pieces with no waste/scrap. A total of 64 tiles would be an ample amount to cover any miscuts, in most situations. (MORE)
The answer depends on the type of tile. To cut acoustical tile, use a ruler or steel tape and a utility knife to mark your cut, the go back and forth down the cut line going deeper each time. Finish the cut off by turning the tile over and starting at the top edge, go down the back side once.
