How to install stretch ceilings yourself

There are two options for installing a stretch ceiling: with the help of a specialized company or independently. The main advantage of the stretch ceiling over other types of suspended structures is minimal preparation before installation. All work can be divided into stages, it is:
- preparation of the existing ceiling;
- preparation of walls:
- preparation of electrical wiring;
- installation of stretch ceiling;
Initially, perform work related to wiring. Dismantle chandeliers and lamps, make a marking, where and at what height new lighting devices will be placed. If the wiring in your house is in poor condition, take care of replacing or moving to a more accessible place after installing the ceiling. When transferring it is necessary to place the wires so that they or junction boxes do not fall into the place of fastening of the profile. Do not forget to leave the wire outlet under the chandelier in the ceiling.But for the period of installation it is better to hide the wire so that it does not interfere with the ceiling stretching.
To level the ceiling there is no need, the PVC film, from which the stretch ceiling is made, will completely hide all errors. But the walls will have to be well aligned, because to them you will mount the bearing profile.
After leveling the walls, you can proceed to the installation of the profile to the walls. In the metal profile, holes are drilled at a distance of 120-145 mm from each other along the entire length. Then the profile is mounted at a distance of 3-4 cm from the ceiling. During installation, you must remember that the entire load of the cloth will fall on it, besides it will serve as a support when pulling it, therefore its fastener must be solid. Do not allow shifts and wrinkles, eliminate profile deflections.
Carefully remove the cloth from the packaging. Do not use piercing and cutting tools. When attaching the edge of the canvas on the profile, use a special hook that will pull the fabric in the profile and correctly position its fastener.
After securing the panel along one wall, run an industrial dryer to heat the fabric and give it the desired elasticity. Typically, the heating time does not exceed 20 minutes. A temperature of 35 ° C is sufficient.
The ceiling is fixed first on one side, then the opposite side is fixed, and then the sides are tensioned. In the corners of the canvas is attached after the main stretch. You do not need to achieve an absolutely flat surface, because you have to heat the room again and only after that align the panel to the ideal, tightly securing the corners to the guides.
