How to Find a Contractor to Install a Tin Ceiling
LESLIE: We’ve got Ann on the line who’s got a ceiling issue. Tell us what’s going on at your money pit.
ANN: Well, what happened is I have a large living room. At one time, it had been two rooms and they combined it into one.
ANN: On one of the sections, it has a metal or a tin ceiling. And what I want to do is install a ceiling to match in the other section. I located the manufacturer of the ceiling tiles. However, I don’t know who to call to do the installation, because they could not provide me with any ideas. So, should I be looking for a sheet-metal person? Should I look for a tinsmith or a …?
TOM: So you can’t find a tin ceiling installer in the phone book? Is that what you’re trying to tell us?
ANN: Right. There’s no one listed.
TOM: Listen, it’s not a hard project, Linda. It’s really a job for a carpenter. It’s not a difficult project. A carpenter with a little bit of metalworking experience can handle this. And I’m very impressed that you actually found the product, because it’s a little tough to find.
LESLIE: Yeah, exactly what you’re looking for.
TOM: So I would handle – a good carpenter or a good handyman. Really easy job to install that. And so that’s the way I would take it.
ANN: Oh, thank you ever so much. I really appreciate all your help.
TOM: Well, you’re very welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
