repairing ceiling tiles that are loosened & dropping
The ceiling tiles in the kitchen haven't fallen completely yet but I'd like to fix them before they get worse. Money's tight so we'll probably do this ourselves. My husband says it's from the heat of the stove & oven but it started around the ceiling fan. The fan's separate from the 3 light fixtures if that makes any difference & if I remember right, wobbled alittle when it's on. The tiles are only doing this in the area around the fan & near the stove so he may be right. I counted the longest rows of tiles (width = 13 1/2 tiles; length = 16 tiles) so I'm guessing we'd have to buy about 215 - 220 tiles in case some get damaged or whatever. Now, can someone give me step-by-step instructions on what to do (pretend you're talking to someone with not much sense). I know to kill the electricity. Don't you start in the middle & work your way out? What do I need to look for when I go to buy the tiles? Thank you in advance.
