What is the average cost per sq ft to install a drop ceiling?

Answer:

Not sure of the cost but the materials can be a little costly I think. A drop ceiling really isnt that complicated. Definately something you could do yourself if you have the equipment and ability.

When you ask about $/sq ft are you talking about an installed price by a contractor or the material cost of doing it yourself? Do you intend to attach to the existing ceiling to smooth it out or are you going to re-frame the ceiling altogether? Depending on the size of the room if you are using 2x4 and Sheetrock and not doing anything strange, material costs could be as low as $3/sq ft. this assumes a relatively small room. If you are just trying to smooth out the ceiling, and use Hat channel and Sheetrock the price would be a little less.

Hi Bob, I have heard of ' Angies List ' but have not used it myself yet. They list many contracotrs form many trades. You may want to get some estimates from contractors listed there. Secondly, try Home Depot or Lowe's just pose the question to someone in the tile dept. for a general idea of costs. Just a thought , but I would look for a tile contractor closer inland than actually hiring a Contractor from the Cape. It's a frugal thought :o)
