Stretch ceilings - a profitable alternative

Competition on the market of finishing companies means that we are looking not only for ways to attract customers, but also to increase the profitability of the work performed.

One of them are stretch ceilings, which are installed 5 times faster than traditional plasterboard ceilings. This allows the assembly company to complete more orders at the same time.

 How do they differ from traditional ones?

A stretch ceiling, unlike a traditional suspended ceiling, has a more attractive design, as it is made of glossy, matte, satin or transparent foil, in a wide range of colors:
- with possible imprint
- or backlight.

It allows you to create any shape of a new ceiling, as there is a possibility of making the structure:
- multi-level
- flat
- with the use of arcs, ovals and other geometric figures, also 3D.

As a result, the stretch ceiling provides greater possibilities of interior design. However, above all, it allows for much faster execution of works, which, combined with a high margin, significantly increases the real profit of the assembly company.

Long and cumbersome installation of a traditional ceiling.
To build a traditional suspended ceiling, it is necessary to:
- emptying the room
- preparation and installation of a special frame
- plasterboard assembly
- many additional activities that not only take the time and energy of employees, but are also burdensome for the customers themselves (dust, dust, thorough cleaning of all rooms)
The result is a long duration of work with one ceiling, which can be up to 5 days.

The ceiling is stretched quickly and efficiently.

The stretch ceiling offered by Alteza is a type of suspended ceiling that is completely different from the traditional plasterboard structure. First of all, no racks are needed for its assembly, and the entire installation takes place in just a few hours - without removing the furniture from the room. In fact, it only requires special profiles to be screwed to the walls and PVC foil stretched between them.

More jobs at the same time.
As the price of a stretch ceiling is comparable to the price of a drop ceiling, the installation company saves primarily on the time that is spent on installing such a structure. The contractor is able, at the same time, to install up to 5 times more stretch ceilings than suspended ceilings made of plasterboard.

Of course, this has real benefits:
1. More completed orders means more money earned.
2. Short execution time, followed by a short waiting time for subsequent customers. This allows the buyer to have a new ceiling in just a few hours, not a few days.

Who can install stretch ceilings?
In principle, there are no restrictions when it comes to selling and installing stretch ceilings. Importantly, even the smallest finishing companies can afford to include this product in their offer. The rules of cooperation with Alteza are so flexible that even 1-person companies with 2-3 employees can sell its products.

Having stretch ceilings on offer makes the portfolio richer and more interesting than other finishing companies. In addition, advertising the product itself does not require additional investment, because in most cases it is a direct conversation with the client, and then personal recommendations are the best promotion tool.

Training for contractors.

The manufacturer organizes training in the installation of stretch ceilings. During the practical part, everyone can take part in the assembly works. During the training, contractors receive information, among others about:
- the possibilities of using this system
- types of lighting and the method of their installation in a stretch ceiling
- tools needed for assembly.

A wide range of possibilities and express assembly time is a good recipe for a successful activity in the finishing industry.
