Question:

Ceiling Falling?

In a school auditorium, what would make part of the ceiling fall other than from age or some type of mold problem? The ceiling, supposedly, only fell once but it was a decent size piece. It has been unusable for almost a year now, I think there is more to the story...

Answer:

Is it a suspended grid acoustical ceiling? This shouldn't happen unless the tiles get wet and soak up water or the border tiles were cut too short, or the installer didn't use pop rivets to secure the grid to the molding.

Water leaks causing parts of the ceiling to collapse could be one reason.
