When remodeling your home or building a new one, the type of ceiling you decide upon matters. Your ceiling can transform the look and feel of your home, as well as help with its acoustics. This is why more and more homeowners are installing acoustic ceilings as a way to manage sound and add a little decorative uniqueness to their homes.
Acoustic Drop Ceilings
Acoustic drop ceilings are very similar to traditional suspended ceilings except that acoustic drop ceilings absorb sound. Made with a special sound-absorbing material, these types of ceilings are ideal for any home that struggles with controlling noise levels.
Many homeowners suffer from issues regarding noise levels due to loud neighbors, noisy and congested traffic nearby, planes flying overhead, or other loud noises outside of the home. These types of ceilings help with reducing noise within the home, as well as reducing noise pollution that comes from outside allowing you to enjoy more peace and quiet within.
Acoustic Drop Ceiling Pros
Acoustic drop ceilings come with many advantages for homeowners. Let’s discuss a few below:
These ceiling types are used primarily for sound absorption. This is why they are most often used in places of business or in offices to help reduce noise and stress, distraction, and reduction in productivity. These are all good reasons also for why this type of ceiling would be a great addition to any home or home office, as well.
Conceals Imperfections And Pipes Or Wires
Acoustic drop ceilings are also beneficial in maintaining the look and appeal of a ceiling that may suffer from imperfection or have traveling pipes or wires visually present. With the drop ceiling panels, these unsightly issues quickly become resolved and disappear from eyesight.
Easy To Maintain
The panels used in acoustic drop ceilings are easy to clean and maintain. Additionally, if one does become damaged, it can be replaced easily and without costing the homeowner much time or money at all.
Acoustic Drop Ceiling Cons
It is important for homeowners to know the downsides to any new renovations or buys. So, let’s discuss some of the potential drawbacks below:
A drawback to these types of ceilings is that the panels used are not waterproof. Additionally, when exposed to moisture, they can develop water spots that take away from the beauty of your ceiling, as well as its health.
Deteriorate With Time
Because these tiles are of a lightweight nature, they are less sturdy and will deteriorate with time a little quicker. Deteriorating tiles often sag which is never a good look for a ceiling. However, as mentioned before, these tiles are easy to replace and can even be painted if they ever become dull or the color deteriorates.
Reduction In Ceiling Height
Acoustic drop ceilings do take away from the height of your home’s current ceiling. Which may also affect the feel of your overall space. This can make these types of ceilings less practical for homes that may have lower ceilings. Or homeowners that own tall furniture.
