We have an old celotex ceiling and it is falling down..insulation is blown in on top of ceiling tiles and will fall out if taken down..Is there anything we can put up over this like bead board or 1/4" sheet rock..which is cheaper and which is best...Thanks for any info out there...

1/2" sheet rock would be the cheapest and easiest----1/4" costs more and will sag and bag on a ceiling.
Thanks Mike...if the rafters are 2ft how would the 1/4" sag..and if 1/2" is cheapest why would the 1/4" cost more...Thanks again!!!
How is this celotex ceiling held in place?
Tiles in a metal grid?
Tiles glued to the ceiling?
Tiles stapled to strapping?
Thanks Ron!! the tiles are stapled to the strapping....
