Drywall ceiling


I have a 16'x16' 11.5' height ceiling that has celatex stapled to 3/4'' tongue and groove boards.I would like to install 3/8'' drywall on the ceiling but dont want to take down the celatex because of the mess(dust,dirt etc.)Do you recommend taking it down or will it be ok the go over it?

Thanks, Glenn Archer

you can go over it. Be sure to mark the studs at each end along the wall so you know where to place the screws. You may need to use 2" drywall screws.
