I have a box of tiles. There is a very small edge around the perimeter. I'm thinking these are the glue up style. If these were drop style then the edge would be 0.25" or more. Am I right?

Good morning, im looking for decorative cieling tiles to be placed on the underside of my back porch, are these pvc, or a material that can be used outside? Also nailed on and cutable for proper fitting?

Asked by: Matt
All Ceilume ceiling tiles are made from a rigid pvc which is impervious to moisture. The Cambridge tile can be direct mounted and cut to fit. The best way to install our direct mount tiles is to glue them in place; we don't recommend nailing or stapling them as the area you have to work with is very narrow and easily damaged if you get too close to the edge of the tile. Ceilume doesn't recommend using our ceiling tiles in exterior installations. We haven't done cold weather testing to see how our tiles will withstand an exterior installation in cold climates (and Milwaukee definitely qualifies!) and our fear is that if the glue and vinyl expand at different rates, the tiles will fall off.

Are your tiles color thru out or will the color scratch off on a wall application?

Asked by: Dap
The White, Sand, Merlot, Latte, Stone, and Black colored tiles are a solid color throughout. The Faux Wood and Faux Metallic colors are a thin laminate that may be damaged by exposure to scratches or repeated contact. For a wall installation, please consider the Manchester Lap Joint tile. It is visually similar to the Cambridge but has been made specifically for glue-up applications. The overlapping edge pattern of the Manchester allows for faster and easier installation and it eliminates the need for the Decorative Strips which would be needed to cover the joints where the Cambridge tiles would butt together.

Can you paint them?

Asked by: Jack
Most definitely! All of our ceiling tiles (and decorative strips and decorative grid tape) can be painted right out of the box or after you install them. A couple of notes: - Painting voids all fire ratings and approvals. - Always paint-match the actual products that you are planning on installing. - Do not use solvent-type thinners and cleaners.

Can these glue-up tiles be applied to a swirled ceiling?

Asked by: Newbiediyer
Ceilume does not recommend installing any glue-up ceiling tile to a ceiling with popcorn finish. "Textured" or "Swirled" ceilings are a bit harder to assess. If the depth of the "swirl" if very shallow, it could be possible, with the understanding that you may use a bit more adhesive due to the voids of the texture/swirl. If the swirl is very pronounced, it would not be a good substrate for a glue-up tile installation.

I'm ordering the Cambridge glue up (butt joint) 2'x2' can I use the tape you offer or does it have to be the strips? ( I don't care for the look of the strips.)

Asked by: scott
The Deco-Tape is too thin and can not be used to cover the joints where the Glue-Up tiles butt together. We do offer 2 different styles of Deco-Strips: - Decorative Strips with a dot-dash pattern - Smooth Strips with no pattern The Smooth strips will give you the look of the Deco-Tape but will be thick enough to properly cover the joints.

waterproof? I want to put them in a room with an indoor lap pool.

Asked by: vsr
All Ceilume ceiling tiles, including the Cambridge tile, are made from a rigid vinyl material that is impervious to water and humidity.

Can this be install over texture tiles?

Asked by: Gerald
If you would like to leave your old ceiling tiles in place for additional thermal and sound insulation, you can slide the Cambridge tile beneath your existing tile. If you have textured tiles that are glued to an existing ceiling, those tiles and all adhesive would have to be removed prior to gluing the Cambridge to your ceiling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your product is FANTASTIC! My husband and I are rehabbing a 1967 mobile home in Briny Breezes, FL. We ordered the product and had it delivered overnight. We installed it the next morning. EASY PEASY!!! If we can do this ANYONE can. The ceilings look unbelievable!! Our neighbors are floored at how beautiful our ceilings are. I am so thrilled with this, that as soon as we finish with the living room and kitchen remodel, I am going to order more for the the two bedrooms. Thanks for such fast service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you for the follow up - we love our ceilume ceiling tiles that we installed in our finished basement - very easy and took very little time. I would rate the entire process from customer service, (Dave sending me installation photos of the border tiles I was interested in installed in his office sold me) receiving of samples and photos provided to delivery and installation a 5!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love our new ceiling. We would give the ceiling tiles a 5 for ease of use and appearance. I also talked to a few people at the company and all of them were very helpful. Our installer made one suggestion that I have already passed on. It is important to press the middle of the ceiling tile first and then the outside so you don't trap any unwanted air in the middle of the tile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Look great. I had never used tiles like this before. They are lightweight and easy to cut. They look great. I have received many compliments. These particular tiles that can be placed over existing suspended ceiling tiles allowed me to keep the existing recessed lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful andEasy to Install I worked with John and he has hit a home run with this product ! 100% quality, beautiful finish, easy to work with. Results better than expected. I took an older drop ceiling grid, cleaned it and painted it gloss black. I'm very satisfied. Thanks John.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product! I did five rooms in a colonial home with ceilings that dated back to the '70s. I can't describe how awesome it looks now. Easy to install. Great customer service!
