The before and after living room pictures from our recent project don’t appear too dramatic from ground level. It is only when you look up that you realize there was quite a bit of work done. The house had water coming in for many months. The ceiling needed to be dropped 4″ and leveled across a span of more than 15′. Our contractor utilized a method that included a level outer track and steel studs for the project. Steel studs were an ideal choice here since they are straight as can be. In addition to that, they are lightweight which made the leveling work much easier than it would have been with lumber.
