A solid wood ceiling can give your home a unique look, but there are some things you need to know when considering this option.

  • Installation of a wood ceiling is labor intensive which results in higher costs than a drywall ceiling.
  • Wood ceilings can be either painted or stained to give the room a different look.
  • Each board in a wood ceiling must be individually cut, fit, and nailed in place.
  • Solid wood lumber can warp and may take some work to achieve a tight fit.
  • Prefinished, simulated wood ceilings are available that are easier to install than wood.
