The Right Porch Ceiling Adds CharmAdd ceiling porch bead board to an existing plywood porch ceiling or install tongue and groove and you've just created a warm inviting porch.
Most porches are either open with visible rafters/joists or covered with various materials. Like other parts of your porch you have options.
The ceiling on your porch can be a wow!

Tips: When installing tongue and groove, use stainless steel ring nails. Also, allow for expansion and if using wide boards (4" or more) nail the board to the joist in several places.
Also, miter the end cuts so that the boards fit together end-to-end nicely. This prevents separation lines when the wood expands and contracts.

Now that you have the right porch ceiling, add a ceiling fan!
Easy to install, an outdoor ceiling fan will add a steady breeze on those hot summer days. They look great and will add both ambiance and comfort for your family and guests.
Did you know porch ceilings are traditionally painted blue? Word has it that it reminds people of the sky or that it wards off mosquitoes. Either way, a blue ceiling looks great!
