Installing An Armstrong Wood Ceiling
Armstrong wood ceiling – Armstrong ceilings are functional and easy to maintain if they are installed correctly. Measure the length of the room. Determine the height of the ceiling. Locate the vertical wall studs with a stud finder. Then, place a pencil mark on each bolt, 1 1/4 inches above the finished ceiling height. Attach the L channel on the wall by running 2-inch wood screws into each stud, while holding the L channel on the chalk line.
Furthermore, stretch the chalk line between the two center marks. Snap chalk lines on the floor to mark the center of the length of the room. Attach an Armstrong wood ceiling wire clamp with the drill and 2-inch wood screws on the ceiling joists closest to the laser point of the solder but in line with the laser mark. Cut the main tees to the length of the room with aviation snips.

Place the transverse profiles of the main tees. Repeat the process for the other side of the cross profile. Continue to install two meters apart transverse profiles until you have all of the transverse profiles installed. Place the Armstrong wood ceiling panels in the ceiling. Cut border panels to fit with a utility knife. So, always mark and cut on the finished side of the roof tiles to avoid ruining the panels’ finish.
