Kitchen Remodeled saved a Ceiling from Falling!

The Green family from Fullerton, ca  hired Acoustic Removal Experts to remove their acoustic ceilings throughout their home and they also wanted to remodel their kitchen ceiling to have recessed lighting installed.  When  we started, we realized that someone had removed a weight bearing wall in their kitchen which had caused the ceiling to cave and it was falling as seen in the pictures.

We removed the falling sheet rock and re framed it first by jacking up the sagging joists.  It had been sagging 4 inches and the plaster was begining to fall on the ceiling when we got there.

This is the ceiling after we repaired it in order to complete the kitchen remodel.

The new framed ceiling was now supported from the roof trusses.  We installed new wiring, drywall and new LED recessed lights. The Green’s in Fullerton were thrilled!!
