How do I find the studs above my ceiling?

I need to repare a 13ft x 4ft section - gona just throw up some plywood, but need to find where to screw it in at.

Any suggestion on HOW?

Hello dana4585!

 

Locating studs used to frame any portion of your home is about the same ... walls or ceiling.

 

Johnson Magnetic Stud Finder is an inexpensive locator that will help you.

Simply hold the base against your surface and slide until the magnetic indicator stands upright ... indicating a stud or nail.

 

Use light pencil marks as visual locators for the framing boards, position your repair in-line with the frame, and screw down.
