Installing ceiling mount shower head to sloped ceiling
 
Does anyone know where to buy escutcheons for ceiling mount shower heads that will work for a sloped ceiling? Or, does anyone have any ideas on how to do this, other than building a boxed mount onto the ceiling itself?

I've never had occasion to do one in a sloped ceiling, so my default response is to try your local plumbing supply house.
Sorry I couldn't be more specific.:(

Just don't use an escutcheon. After you install the drop pipe, it may be necessary to touchup sheetrock mud and paint around the hole.


:thumbup:

My response is based on the fact that vaulted ceilings come with infinite number of incremental difference of degree. There wouldn't be a "1 size fits all angled ceiling escutcheon."

What type of finish are you looking at?

Thanks - that's likely what I'll do.
