In Response To: Need to install ceiling tile. (Andy McGhee)

You have the basic idea... The only thing I would suggest (since it sounds like you didn't get the basic instruction set that should have come with the tile..) is to take a quick look at the local library for a book on the subject. Should be well covered in home improvement type books.

It's much like floor tile. You need to start from the center to lay out so you come up with equal size tiles at the edges (even though you start installing the tile in one corner..)

If there is existing ceiling trim, it would be best to remove it if possible, and reinstall it over the new tile to cover any rough edges.

It's an easy enough process for a do it yourself type project.. but you need to undersand the basics of layout BEFORE you begin.
