Suspended Ceilings/Drywall

Suspended Ceilings

Suspended ceilings, also known as drop ceilings or false ceilings, are secondary ceilings installed below the main structural ceiling. They are typically made up of a grid system of metal channels or tracks, with ceiling tiles or panels resting within the grid. These tiles can be made from various materials such as mineral fiber, gypsum, or metal, offering different aesthetic and performance characteristics.

Suspended ceilings serve several purposes, including concealing structural elements like ductwork, wiring, and piping, improving acoustics by reducing sound transmission between floors, enhancing thermal insulation, and providing easy access to utilities for maintenance and repairs.


Drywall, also known as gypsum board or plasterboard, is a common building material used for interior wall construction. It consists of a core of gypsum sandwiched between layers of paper or fiberglass. Drywall is installed by attaching sheets to the framing of a building, typically with screws or nails, and then finishing the seams and fastener heads with joint compound and tape.

Drywall is popular due to its affordability, ease of installation, and versatility. It provides a smooth, even surface for painting or wallpapering, and it can also be textured for added visual interest. Additionally, drywall offers fire resistance and soundproofing properties, making it a practical choice for residential and commercial construction projects alike.
