Removal of the old ceiling and stripping of all nails and drywall tape from the edges will take care and must be done before the new ceiling can be put in place. You will use standard drywall techniques and will probably require the help of someone else to lift the sheets of drywall to the ceiling and hold it in place while it is nailed into the ceiling joists
Measure the total dimensions of the ceiling. Determine which direction your sheets will be placed to generate the fewest seams. Also take into consideration the placement of outlets, power couplings and lights that need holes and cutouts. Make the inclusion of the holes for these as easy as possible.
Continue to place each section of wallboard onto the ceiling, making tight joints with the sides and other panels. This will minimize the job of taping before paining. Once the panels are all in place, place drywall tape over the seams and secure them with drywall spackle.
