To condo owners, we provide a way to upgrade their overhead lighting by installing recessed LED lighting in apartments with concrete ceilings and a modern way to cover popcorn ceilings and avoid messy scraping.
Stretch fabric systems are an ideal solution for condos with popcorn or concrete ceilings. If you have a popcorn ceiling, you probably thought that scrapping the textured paint would be the way to deal with it. The traditional way of popcorn ceiling removal is an outdated and messy process, which creates havoc in an apartment, and can also be dangerous if your popcorn paint contains asbestos.
Philadelphia Ceiling is excited to be the Popcorn Ceiling Solution’s exclusive installation partner of the Philadelphia, Maryland, and Delaware region. We are a full-scope service contractor and would be happy to help you with your ceiling replacement project.
Our German-made stretch fabric ceiling systems totally encapsulate old textured popcorn paint, providing you with nothing but a flawless finish and smooth ceiling surface. We provide a Lifetime Warranty on all of our residential Popcorn Ceiling Solution installations.
Our other service mission to residential customers is to help condo owners install modern LED recessed lighting in apartments with concrete ceilings. Our LED lights are low-profile fixtures, and under normal conditions are installed within the standard 1” space, which is required for a stretch ceiling installation.
Acoustic fabric ceilings and walls
Research has shown that when the noise level goes up, your heart rate and blood pressure rise too. A sound level of 60dB is enough to impact heart rate. Constant exposure to high levels of noise lead to a variety of health and wellness impairments and conditions. Despite this being common knowledge, we do not see people wearing ear protection in bars and restaurants.
In acoustic chambers, sound waves reverberate off the reflective surfaces in the room,creating distortions in voices or music.
Thus, to improve the speech intelligibility and sound fidelity, it is important to balance the reflective surfaces with the proper ratio of absorption and diffusion panels on ceilings or walls.
Professional acoustical treatments for ceilings and walls from Philadelphia Ceiling do just that. We offer a wide range of solutions for every sound-related problem and source our acoustical materials from industry leading manufacturers.
Glossy stretch ceilings
Lacquered (Glossy) stretch ceilings are an ideal solution for swimming pools, saunas, showrooms and ultra-contemporary residential and commercial interiors. We have over 13 years of experience installing glossy stretch ceilings in Europe and are pleased to offer this service to our customers in the greater Philadelphia area. Trust your stretch ceiling installation to the professionals with experience!
Backlit stretch ceilings
A properly executed backlit stretch ceiling is an architectural marvel. The entire ceiling or a part of it illuminates the space with even glow without any visible light fixtures. However, we have seen many backlit ceilings designed or installed without the due diligence and the result is bleak. On numerous occasions, we’ve been asked to fix the attempts of building a backlit ceiling. Without experience, it is easy to make mistakes in such installations. Hot spots and dark spots are the most common problems. We carefully calculate the light distribution to ensure the even glow of the ceiling without the light spots. If you hire Philadelphia Ceiling to do a backlit installation, we always put up two layers of fabric—one being the dust ply, almost 80% translucent membrane, and the second layer—the 50% translucent fabric which is the finished surface of the backlit ceiling. This system prevents any bugs and dust from settling on the finished surface. When backlit, all dust and bugs become visible, but our clients enjoy pure white backlit ceilings.
