3. Is it possible to print the ceiling image that I have found myself?

Yes, of course! Thanks to photoprint, the ceiling fabric can carry the picture of any color and saturation.

Please see popular photoprint templates.

There is one thing, which is important: the computer file of the image you found to have its resolution good enough for the planned printed area. Ideal specifications of the image file are as follows: size — 3,000 x 3,000 pixel (px) or better, resolution — 300 dots per inch (dpi).

In fact, you can use our collection of pictures to search for photoprinting ideas or take a look at the already implemented projects.

4. How long does it take to develop the design project for the ceiling and its 3D visualization?

Development of the ceiling design project and its 3D visualization take 2 to 14 days on the average depending on the difficulty of the planned project and the size of the room.

First, we measure the room and make pictures of it; then we clarify the customer’s preferences regarding design (our clients usually choose their design in our FB gallery).

After that, our designer makes a sketch drawing by pencil. Once approved, we do the 3D model of the room; the number of the viewing angles is agreed in advance and it is price-affective.

You can order development of your design project and its 3D visualization right now!

6. Can I paint my stretched ceiling?

Stretched ceilings made from the PVC film (film stretched ceilings) cannot be painted. Alas, if the ceiling color has to be changed, then the entire fabric must be replaced. You should treat it like replacing wallpaper. Your bargain: in case you replace the ceiling installed by our company before, your price will be much lower than the initial stretched ceiling installation price.

The fabric-backed ceiling can be painted up to 10 times. However, we do not recommend doing it yourself: you’d better rely on professionals.

NYCeiling, Inc. will gladly help you find a new color solution for your ceiling!

7. Can the stretched ceiling get damaged? What can be done if it happens?

The fabric of the stretched ceiling can get damaged by any sharp or cutting tool, and also by abrasive and aggressive cleaning substances containing acetone, kerosene and various solvents.

If you damaged the fabric, do not worry. You should fix the scar by a scotch-tape or an insulating tape (to stop the stretched ceiling from developing its wound) and send for our specialist. After fabric damage assessment, our employee will offer you suitable repair options.

E.g., if the cut is small (1-3 centimeters long), the fabric can be protected from further rupturing by over tightening (if the rupture is close to the line of the fixing profile) or by placing the blow-out patch.

8. How to take care of the stretched ceiling?

In fact, stretched ceilings do not need to be looked after, because this textile does not accumulate frictional electricity to attract dust, and water is not condensed on top of it.

However, if the fabric stretched ceiling gets dirty, then these spots can be washed by a soft cloth soaked in warm soap solution.

If you have a film stretched ceiling, markings can also be washed out by a soft cloth soaked in warm soap solution or a 10 percent ammonia solution followed by polishing (dry cloth or flannel swap) to make the surface glitter again.

Despite durability and wear resistance of the material, you should avoid using any sharp or cutting tools, abrasives, aggressive washing substances containing acetone, kerosene and various solvents.

We urge you to study our terms and conditions of warranty and our stretched ceiling care recommendations.

9. How low the ceiling level will get once the stretched ceiling is installed?

Installation of the stretched ceiling will lower your ceiling level by 3-4 centimeters at most. However, a lot depends on the parameters of the raw surface and your requirements. Thus, if the ceiling is to be absolutely flat and horizontal in a room with outstanding height discontinuities, it may require the stretched ceiling to be positioned lower than usual.

On the other hand, stretched ceilings make it possible to consider height alterations of the ceiling and the number of angles of its surface or create new shapes thus increasing the space of the room.

To find out the way how to play your space with the stretched ceiling you can contact our designers to develop your individual project.

10. What illumination can be used with the stretched ceilings, and does NYCeiling, Inc. deliver light installation services?

11. Is it necessary to prepare the ceiling surface to install the stretched ceiling? Does NYCeiling, Inc. deliver such services?

In most cases, it is not necessary to clean the ceiling surface from old finish materials. For example, it is enough to “open” plaster where cracks are seen, and remove the parts that can fall down. In any case, the surface should be treated with the deep penetration acrylic primer before installation.
