Shedding Light on Drop Ceiling Window Well Slopes
Improved Ceiling Function
When installing a suspended ceiling in a basement, there are always “What should I do here?” questions. The desire to preserve the natural light from a basement window often leaves a homeowner wondering what to do. Sadly, most homeowners and even professional installers never take the time to maximize the full benefit of a basement window and simply install a suspended ceiling straight across the window. This leaves the ceiling exposed to rodents and insects looking to find a great home between your ceiling space and floor joists. Strictly Ceilings® can show you how to seal off this space by building a slope off the window. Similar to other types of ceiling drops, you will also benefit from natural light by building a window well slope. Another advantage is the improved aesthetics when you see how a properly built window well slope adds a finished, dimensional look to your room.
