If you are conducting renovations on your home, one of your top concerns may be ceiling repairs or even a complete ceiling replacement. As with any renovation project, you want to make sure that you are able to stay within your budget. The amount that you’ll pay for a ceiling replacement depends largely on the type of ceiling you wish to install.
Drop ceilings are most commonly seen in businesses but you can find them in some homes as well, particularly in basements. A drop ceiling is formed by inserting a series of tiles into a frame below the piping, electrical wires and insulation in the ceiling. Drop ceilings tend to be relatively inexpensive, although they are also not the most attractive.
Popcorn, or textured, ceilings are not nearly as popular as they were back in the 70s, so we more commonly see popcorn ceiling replacements rather than installations. However, they have retained some popularity, thanks to their lower cost when compared to traditional drywall.
Drywall is the most common material for ceilings in Perth and creates a simple, smooth surface. Although not the least expensive option, drywall is still relatively inexpensive to install.
Beam ceilings offer a great way to expose the wood construction of a home or to create a rustic look. The cost for this type of ceiling will depend on what is already in place in your home. If your ceiling already has internal beams that just need to be exposed and finished, your cost will be relatively low. However, if you will need to actually install the beams, the cost will be much higher.
Coffered ceilings are structured similarly to drop ceilings, with beams and tiles, but they are significantly more expensive, typically at least 10 times the price of a drop ceiling. Coffered ceilings tend to be custom-designed and give a home an elegant, classy air.
Vaulted ceilings are, by far, the most expensive option, potentially costing tens of thousands of dollars to install. However, they also look stunning and can add enormous value to your home. These high ceilings create the feel of more space and are most commonly seen in high-end, luxury homes.
