Looking for advice, bids, and suggestions:

I have a 1950’s era Cape with these sort of cardboard/wood pulp tile ceilings:

This is in a room that is approximately 144 sq. ft.

I want to get them replaced with this kind of ceiling tile from Armstrong, available at the big box home improvement store of your choice:

A few questions:

1. Has anyone done anything like that, and if so, is this the approach you would recommend, or is there a better/more efficient/more cost effective method for replacing an old ceiling like this?

2. What would you budget for this? The tiles are about $92/box, and each box is about 29 sq. ft., so off the bat it’s $500 for materials. What’s reasonable labor from an insured contractor to get this sort of thing done? Is it a DIY project for the reasonably unskilled?

If you’re in the metro Boston area and a contractor (or really enjoy traveling at your own expense), you are more than welcome to make an offer/bid! Either leave it in the comments or email me from this comments page.
