CEILING TILES FAQ

PRODUCT

What are the Polystyrene tiles made of?

Polystyrene tiles are made from Styrofoam.

How durable are Styrofoam ceiling tiles?

Some of the most common questions our customers ask us is how durable our ceiling tiles are, whether they will hold for a long time and how difficult it is to maintain them. Well, here’s the answer to all these questions. Back in 2008, we moved into a new house and decided to redo the basement. 12 years later, the basement ceiling looks exactly like the very first day. This only goes to show how durable our styrofoam ceiling tiles actually are, and how easy it is to maintain them. Check out the video here.

Are ceiling tiles fire rated?

We always take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of your household, which is why our ceiling tiles are fire rated and tested. Your safety always comes first, that’s why our ceiling tiles have a special fire extinguishing, protective coating. If you look at our video, you will see that the flame is quickly extinguished in Talissa Decor’s ceiling tiles, while the same style from other competitors kept on burning.

Can you paint Styrofoam ceiling tiles?

Yes, Polystyrene tiles could be painted with water based paint – Latex or Acrylic (with roller or sprayer). Because they come unfinished, styrofoam ceiling tiles can be easily painted to the colour of your choice. See how easy it is to paint ceiling tiles in this quick video tutorial.

Here are some tips to keep in mind:

We recommend not painting the tiles before the installation because you risk warping the tiles, especially if you’re working with a flat design. That will make installation way more difficult.

Sometimes the edges of the tiles can be a bit rounded, and when installed together, you may see little cracks in the cross sections. That’s why you should get some white paintable caulk and apply it whenever you see these small cracks. This way, you’ll have a nice and smooth transition between the tiles, and you will hide any imperfections. 

After that, painting the tiles will give them a nice and smooth finish.

You don’t need any special paint for styrofoam tiles. We recommend using plain ceiling paint. However, when choosing your paint roller, get one with a rougher texture to make sure you cover any indentations.
