Beadboard ceiling


We would like to replace the 1960's ceiling tiles in our home with the beadboard panels or strips found in home improvement stores. If we remove the ceiling and install the panels or strips (which are very thin), will we lose any of the insulating factor that the tiles had? We have 10 to 12 inches of sprayed in insulation on top of the insulation sheeting that was installed originally.

Beadboard ceiling


Go to a real lumber yard and look into real wood, 3/8" thick T & G in the longest length you can get.
It needs to be prefinished before it's install.

if you pull the 1960s ceiling panels down will the new insulation fall out of the ceiling? just wondering if that would be your first obstacle. by, insulation sheeting do you mean the aluminum foil stuff with the re enforcement in it?
