I am a painter, and a customer of mine wants to install this type of ceiling. They sell it in 2'x4' sheets for 75 bucks special order at Lowe's. Is there anywhere cheaper to buy this. And im talking about the real material, not the fake stuff.
How do you install it. I was told that liquid nail/construction adhesive works or i can use the nails that come with. I was wondering how the seams are managed. The guy from Lowe's seemed to think that strips are installed to cover the seams.
The ceiling is small and they want can lighting installed as well. So how do I install the tin/copper without making a mistake? I assume the electrician will install the lighting first, then I have to layout my lines where the tin/copper sheeting will go. Then I can measure out where the hole would be on the sheeting and use snips to cut out hole? Can you use one of those electric sheetrock tools for cutting out outlet boxes and stuff like that?
The ceiling has crown molding. So I planned on butting the sheeting up against the crown so that I dont have to remove the crown and then recaulk, or repaint the walls.
Here is a pic of the style of copper/tin sheeting from Lowes.
