12X12 ceiling tiles

I have some ceiling  tiles that are old and need replacing. Would it be OK to use the original grid work to staple to with the new tiles?

First, allow me to welcome you to our community. My name is Tom, known as HD 116 here on-line in the community. I have had considerable experience with ceiling tile replacement on both the suspended type, as well as the grid system to which I believe you are referring.


In either case the existing grid system is fine. The only reason you would have to replace a section of an existing "flush" grid system would be if insect or some other damage had rendered it unable to be a firm foundation for attaching the new 12 x 12 tiles. I use a pneumatic staple gun for reattaching ceiling tiles to a grid system, but a manual stapler would likely do the job fine.


I hope that helps, and again, thank you for joining our community.
