You can Do-It-Yourself! There are many types of ceilings in manufactured homes. Here are some proven methods from the long time experience one of the best known hands on men in the manufactured housing industry for a great week-end project

Homes that don't have sheetrock ceilings probably have tile or ceiling board. The ceiling tiles are generally 16" or 4' wide and run the width of the home. Some types of ceiling tiles are held up with screws and rosettes. Other types are screwed up at the seams and then the seams are covered with a plastic spline.
repariing ceilings REPAIRING

If the tile has become wet due to a ceiling leak and has sagged (left picture), the sag will generally not come out. Very slight sags may be corrected by wetting the tile with a spray bottle, pushing up and holding for several days. No guarantee that it will work. Below is another way to fix the sagging seam that's pictured to the left.

Either the ceiling panels will pull up into place or break (depending upon how deep the sag was). Of course to make everything look symmetrical, you could add these boards to every seam in the room. Paint and stain before screwing them up. The picture to the left shows the sagging seam (pictured above) pulled and secured together with the board.
replacing ceilings REPLACING

When a ceiling tile becomes damaged, replacing it can be a real headache. The first headache is finding ceiling tile to match. Many types of tile are unavailable, and if it were available installation is a real challenge due to the length. In fact, just getting a ceiling tile into a room may be challenging. So if you can't replace the tile(s), your only option is to build a new ceiling. Three types of ceilings are commonly installed in manufactured homes ? suspended, sheetrock and paneled.
replace ceiling Suspended Ceilings

Suspended ceilings are tile set in a grid work. Tile sizes are either 2'x2' or 2'x4'. All kinds of textures are available. The suspended ceiling can be installed just below the existing ceiling. However, any of the old ceiling that is loose or hanging should be removed to prevent it from falling or pushing on the new suspended ceiling. To install, first hang your grids with wire fastened to the old ceiling then drop in the tile. There is no special instructions to installing a false ceiling. Most likely the store you buy the grid and tiles from will have details.
