Our problem is that the area inside the wooden applique has begun to "droop". At the extreme point I measured a drop of about 1 inch. To me it felt like the ceiling material was releasing from the glue used in the construction process of the ceiling. When conferring with our tech and his supervisor it was made clear that this would be a messy job depending upon how easily the ceiling panels could be removed. Another element was that we would be looking at 3 days to make the repair. The supervisor advised us that in addition to removing the ceiling vinyl, panels, lights, a/c ducting and vents in that area that they would reinforce the area by bolting two steel strips running front to back beyond the edges of the tray ceiling area. We made the decision to go ahead with the repair because I was afraid of future structural problems if we let it continue, and also because an additional 3 days of repairs really doesn't matter to us fulltimers.
