Is there a way to replace my kitchen ceiling by covering it without tearing out the old ceiling? I had originally considered nailing up exterior wood siding to match the living room we had redone with wood siding (ran out of money to do the kitchen). I was then going to install faux beams to hide where the panel ends met up. The panels are tongue and groove on the lengths and blend nicely.

There seems to be about 1 1/4” between the bottom of the drywall ceiling and the joints.

The joists are 24 inches apart.

Can the joists handle the weight?

Any feed back would be appreciated.

I think you’re asking: Can 2×4(?2×6?) joists at 24” spacing handle the weight of wood siding and faux beams?

What’s the span of the beams, and are they part of a truss structure, or do they run the span without additional siding? What’s the weight of your wood siding per square foot?

I believe that attic spans are generally set up to support a iive load of 20 lbs/sq.ft and a dead load of 10 lbs/sq.ft. You’re talking dead load (it’s not going to move when it’s installed, and, further, it won’t crack like drywall, so it actually makes your ceiling respond better to live loads). ½” drywall seems to weigh about 1.7 lbs/sq.ft., so unless you’re running close to the limit on live load up there in your rafters, you should be fine.

The siding will actually strengthen the ceiling joists by forcing them to distribute the weight a bit more even. You should be fine, unless your attic is chuck full of stuff.

I don’t know fletcher, lets say he wanted to put 1/2” steel sheets on his ceiling. I don’t think that would be strengthening the ceiling…...

You are still adding weight to ceiling joists whether it be wall paper or lead.
