handyman ceiling tile resized 600A handyman can replace ceiling tiles quite easily. The only challenging issue is finding a perfect match.

Ceiling tiles get stained from plumbing or roof leaks, and when they do it looks like a brown splotch on the tile. It’s not a very professional look for an office.

You may find a very limited supply at a home center, so plan on going to a specialty retailer. Look up “acoustical ceiling tiles” for some choices and you would be wise to bring in a sample tile.

The edges of the ceiling tile sit on a suspended track system. They weight of the tile keeps it in place. You can remove the old tile simply by pushing up on one side and lifting it up and out. You will have to angle it to get it out. The new tile just lifts into the opening and you can set it into the track.

There are some tricky parts when you have to cut a tile. You will have to cut them as you approach the end of the ceiling. You can score them and snap along the score line. Place the tile on a flat surface so that the score line is along the edge of the table and then gently push to snap. You can also just cut the tile completely through. This takes more time, but will leave you with a cleaner finish cut.
