SPECIALTY CEILINGS SPECIFICATIONS

We have the ability to prefabricate any custom ceiling kit you could imagine. To get started, we simply need a few measurements along with a picture, drawing, and/or sketch of what you have in mind. From here, we’ll take your measurements and create 3D CAD drawings for your approval. So, send us those doodles on your morning coffee napkin, and let’s see if we can’t build you a custom specialty ceiling kit.

Material

Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF)
(High Grade Moisture Resistant)

Thickness (in.) 1” – 1 ½” (depending on length and width)

HOW TO MEASURE A CUSTOM SPECIALTY CEILING

We understand that you might not, in the beginning, have absolute concrete dimensions. This is to be expected.  What we're looking for is your ballpark dimensions for the width, length, and height.  Here's where the fun begins.  We take your ballpark dimensions along with your doodles & sketches and turn them into 3D CAD drawings. From here, we'll keep tweaking them until we've accurately captured your vision.

  1. Measure the width, or the shorter side, to the nearest 1/8”. 
  2. Measure the length, or the longer side, to the nearest 1/8”. 
  3. Measure the height to the nearest 1/8”.

HOW TO INSTALL A SPECIALTY CEILING

Every custom specialty ceiling kit comes with tailored installation instructions to your specifications. It's as simple as measuring, marking, and nailing each component in place. If you can color by number and operate a nail gun, then you can install one of our custom specialty ceiling kits.

HOW TO DRYWALL A SPECIALTY CEILING

Drywalling a specialty ceiling is comprised of measuring the curvature, cutting the drywall to the curvature, forming and fastening in place.

QUICK TIPS

  • Wetting the back of the drywall will make the drywall easier to bend.
  • For a tighter radius, consider using a double layer of either ¼” or ¼” flex drywall.

FAQ

How long does it take to get my specialty ceiling?

Specialty ceiling kits normally take 5 to 10 business days to manufacture. Then add a few days for shipping. Figure about a week and a half to two and a half weeks from date of order.

How do you ship my specialty ceiling?

Depending upon the size of your specialty ceiling and/or the size of your total order, it will either ship in boxes via UPS Ground or in a crate via UPS Freight. Once your order has finished processing (usually 1 business day after order), you'll be notified when and how it will ship. If you’d like to know before you order, call us and we’ll let you know.

How do you finish specialty ceilings?

Drywall, plaster, wood veneer, brick veneer, trim, tile… the list is seemingly endless. Whether you want your specialty ceiling to have a simple or an ornate finish, the choice is yours. You can also watch our "7 Creative Ideas to Finish Your Ceilings & Archways" YouTube video.

what our customers are saying

We’re a fan of the groin vault kits from Archways & Ceilings. We have been using them for a few years now and the quality and the ‘WOW’ factor their groin vault kits create are well worth the cost. Plus, their customer service is excellent!

Nick Fisher/ Owner

Dream Structures LLC, Springdale, AR

We were absolutely satisfied with our dome ceiling. The service and communication we got from Archways & Ceiling was top notch. We would highly recommend working with them and using their products.

I would highly recommend Archways & Ceilings for coved ceilings. Their kits takes what can be a hard task for a carpenter and makes it into a simple project. The savings over other products we have used like Styrofoam is significant with better durability.

David Hanson

Archways & Ceilings does a great job on all of their products. Specifically, we have been using their barrel vaults exclusively since 2009 and the exact precision with which they are made cannot be replicated in the field by traditional stick framing methods. For a truly high-end finish and a shape nothing short of perfection, Archways & Ceilings materials are the way to go.

Les Owens

LRO Residential

Archways & Ceilings is a great company to have as a resource.  We know that when we take on projects that require a variety of arched ceilings, we can count on them to come through.  We recently completed a project that required an elliptical barrel vault that intersected with 6 half circle arches at different heights which they call “Igloos.”  This ceiling came out terrific and came out like the architect spec’d.
