At many home centers where ceiling systems are sold offer an installation service and manage schedule the work and guarantee your satisfaction. So when shopping ask if there is an "installed price" in addition to the cost of the ceiling tiles and material. You can hire a carpenter or use an online contractor referral services to have the work done. Another option is to type "suspended or drop ceiling installer in (your city)" in the search box of a search engine like Bing, Google or Yahoo. If you buy the ceiling panes and material online, look for an "installer locator" option on the site to find an installer in your area.
