Your Return on Investment is important to your business, especially in today’s lean economy. Some businesses use the least expensive products without any concern about their return on investment. This leads to that business spending much more over time than those that choose to invest wisely in the first place.
Take ceiling tiles for example — about 98 percent of the tiles in use are made of wood or mineral fiber; basically paper products. All it takes to damage them is moisture or humidity. Any small amount, even air-conditioning condensation, can start harmful mold growth and in time cause these tiles to stain and sag.
Due to this nature of the mineral board product being vulnerable to water and humidity, the only solution with these damaged tiles is to replace them. Again and again. The average facility completely replaces mineral board tiles about every five years due to water damage and staining. The investment on ceiling tiles therefore becomes ongoing.
You are likely looking for options other than to keep replacing tiles over and over. Genesis maintenance-free ceiling tiles are the solution. Not only will you never have to replace the tiles again due to water and humidity, but you will realize a significant Return on your Investment.
The first chart shows the costs of the products over time (click on the image to view the full size graphic); The savings (green) accumulate drastically over a 20-year time frame. This is expressed in values on the square footage of the installation.
The second chart shows the relationship between the ongoing costs associated with mineral board ceiling tiles versus the single purchase of the Genesis product. With a break even point at approximately two years, it is easy to see the value in the investment in a superior product.
We have had to face many issues over the years; in the 1950's it was the lead in our paint, in 1970's it was the asbestos in our ceilings, and now it is the mold in our homes, buildings and schools.
Up to 40% of the public are bothered by mold. If you have mold growing in your ceiling tiles it could be costing you not only in lost revenues but in maintenance as well. Can you afford to be losing anything? Cleaning or painting the ceilings will not resolve the issue, you can only replace the tiles. Once they have mold, they are no longer recyclable as some want you to believe; once a tile starts growing mold it should not be recycled.
Fiber Ceiling Panels can grow mold; Our line of PVC ceiling tiles offer products that cannot grow mold in them.
Accoustical tiles are almost impossible to clean, but they are easy to damage. They harbor bacteria, and when wet sag and grow mold. Our ceiling products are extremely easy to clean. Just spray on soap and water and wipe clean or power wash.
We also have a ceiling Vent Deflector, that will prevent moisture and dirt from blowing onto the ceiling from your vent.
Water stained and spotted ceilings are a major eye sore as well as a huge health hazard. Once they get wet and the moisture has gone through the tile and the water spots are showing then most likely it is already growing mold, mildew and in time will start to sag and can fall out. If the health department checks above the ceiling and finds mold they might either give you warning, fine you, or close you down. Your only recourse is to replace those tiles.
Genesis Ceiling Tiles will never water spot. What do your customers think when they look up and see water spots? How much does it cost you in time locating, matching and installing; not to mention the down time to do so.

Any tile will sag due to weight. Some tiles or panels have to be glued to something else to avoid sagging. Our tiles, compared to these, are much thicker and more rigid and will not sag from their own weight. Most fiber tiles will sag due to humidity or moisture accumulation over time; Genesis Ceiling tiles will never sag due to humidity or moisture.
Most fiber boards tiles are easily damaged when anyone works above them such as electricians, plumbers, and HVAC techs. In fact it is fairly easy to damage during installation. Our ceilings are impact damage resistant and are extremely durable even when moved often.
Rusting metal ceiling grid is not just an eye sore, it is also a health issue. In some cases, such as commercial kitchens, you cannot just cover it up with painth as the health department will not allow it.
Pipe leaks, AC condensation, roof leaks can all cause your grid to rust. Our grid is vinyl so it can never rust or chip. We also have grid covers that snap onto your existing grid system to make that grid look like new.
Ceiling HVAC vents (diffusers) made of metal rust easily from the AC condensation blowing through them. They chip, painting is a hassle (sanding, cleaning and painting). All this can be avoided by use of ABS plastic vents. Our vents never have to be painted, are rust and chip proof, UL94 and come in white or black.
