How do you fix the ceiling panels to wooden joists?
First may I thank you for your info and sample pack. I am replacing my external conservatory roof with a wooden roof, and wish to put a white satin plastic internal ceiling up. The approx size is 20ft x 10ft max. I think I will need 5 x 5 pack of 3000 x 250 boards, 2 "J" edges 3000 meters and 1 "H" section 3000 meters. I am as yet waiting for the roof to be done (weather permitting). My questions are: 1. can you give me a rough estimate of the material price? ; 2. and most important can you advise me as to how I go about fixing the plastic ceiling to the wood joists?
1. How do I cut the plastic?, including holes for the lights? ; 2. How do I fix the plastic to the wood joists? ; 3. Can you give me a rough estimate of the price?
Written By AlanWe recommend cutting the panels with an electric jig saw (1mm pitch), hand held saw (15 teeth per inch or more), or good quality junior hacksaw. Cut at room temperature as cold will make the panels more brittle. If the joists are wood then you will be able to use screws to attach the panels to them. Put the screws through the tongue & groove slots of the panels so the screw heads don't show once the panels are fitted together. In terms of a price estimate, you would be better calling us on 0114 279 9188 and obtaining a full quote.
