Trying to fix my ceiling that keeps coming down. Cause was water damage from roof. They fixed the roof but never fixed the tiles. Need to know what steps to do it on my own. Need help with instructions on what to do and what tools i will need. Thanks :smile:

These are just fiber tiles (surface mount ceiling panel), stapled to the furring strips. Just get some new ones, remove the old staples, and staple the new ones up. If you care about the pattern being different and can't get tiles with the same pattern, you'll have to replace all of the tiles. (Also, you'll need to do the whole ceiling if you care about the new tiles being a slightly different color.)
