Fiberglass Ceiling Tiles?


First off thanks for the info on cutting the recessed tiles. Now we saw some we like but they're fiberglass backed. In what cases would these be used or does it really matter. Theses are 2x2 and I'll have recessed lighting but those will be new construction mounted to the joists. It seems the warranty is better and the price per sq. ft. is about the same versus the fiber panels we're considering. Thanks again.

Fiberglass Ceiling Tiles?

They add a slight insulation value to the ceiling.

Fiberglass Ceiling Tiles?

I don't think it matters whether the tiles are made of fiberglass. If those tiles are the style you want, go ahead and buy them.

I would do any sawing or cutting out of doors so as not to get fiberglass dust all over the place; that stuff is quite nasty to skin and lungs.
