Super Easy to Cut and Install
Installation DescriptionA drop ceiling installation using Stratford White Ceiling Tiles.
It's been a long-time coming but we have finally finished the basement refinishing project for which we ordered the Ceilume Stratford ceiling tiles. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out and already have received many compliments on the ceiling. The tiles were super-easy to cut and install. Installing the tiles goes very quickly - it's installing the grid system that takes time. We actually have 3 different ceiling heights throughout the basement - for two areas we did a true dropped ceiling grid, for the 3rd and largest area we mounted the grid directly to the joists to maximize the ceiling height. Surprisingly the grid looks better in the two areas where it is actually dropped - the grid appears more uniform and the joints line up much more seamlessly than in the area where the grid is mounted to the joists (we assume that is because the bottom of the joists aren't precisely level with each other and those small differences manifest when the grid is mounted and tiles are installed).

Low Profile Grid in Garage
Installation DescriptionA drop ceiling installation using Stratford Merlot Ceiling Tiles.
Here are a couple of photos of my installation of the Stratford tiles with a CeilingLink grid system in my garage. This is an unheated garage in upstate New York, and Ceilume was one of the very few panels I found that can handle the range of temperature and humidity, and far and away the most reasonably priced. Your service and product are excellent, installation was a breeze, and I look forward to doing business with Ceilume in the future.

Easy to Paint and Install
Installation DescriptionA drop ceiling installation using Orb White Ceiling Tiles, and Stratford White Ceiling Tiles.
We went with the Ceiling Link grid system. I know this is not your product, but I thought I'd just share that next time I would go with one that locks together. If I accidentally pushed too hard on the tile I was putting in, the whole row would shift, and I'd have to go back to the beginning and reset them all. Not a huge problem, but annoying when it did happen. As far as your product.... The tiles were sooo easy to paint. I loved them. I ended up not antiquing the Stratford ones like I had planned to do because the antiqued ones seemed too dark, and looked dirty once they were up. So, I painted the Stratford ceiling tiles a CrÃ¨me Brulee cream color (one coat). These went in the bulk of the basement... den, office, library, hallway, storage room, and bathroom. The trim in these rooms was also painted that color, and they look great together. Rather than use the edge pieces of the grid, the top trim pieces actually hold the tiles up along the edges. The Orb pattern is in our boys' bedroom. I painted those the same light blue that is on the upper third of their walls (2 coats). They look great! As far as installation. It was even easier than I expected to cut the holes out for vents and lights. The material is very easy to work with. The only issue I had was with the Orb pattern. The problem may have been caused by us making the grid pieces fit a little too tightly in places. If a tile was pushed up in a corner out of the grid, I could get a grip on the Stratford tile to pull it back down into place, but the Orb pattern had nothing to grip, so I had to pop the tile beside it out and push it back down, then hope that the one I popped out fell back into place easily. This was not a huge problem, but it did happen often. Again, this may have been due to the grid system we chose not locking into place, allowing the tiles to get pinched tighter than they needed to be. So, overall, we were very pleased with the Ceilume tiles. They were easy to work with, took paint very well, and were easy to put up. They look really great, and we're looking forward to their easy care for many years.
