I will be installing a suspended ceiling in a utility room soon, but am
looking for advice at the easiest way to get around a slope. On one side of
the room, the roof slopes down, so for a 4 foot section I will have to
install a ceiling at an angle until I get to the spot where I can go
straight across. I've thought of just putting a pice of sheetrock there at
the angle until it gets to the point that is high enough to run the
suspended ceiling straight across. How easy and how would it end up looking
if I just put a suspended ceiling in at the angle to? Is is something that
is easy enough to manage and won't look horrible?
Here's what I would do.
Depending upon the angle of the slope, you may be able to bend the track
profile so that the track lip that supports the panel is horizontal, and
then cut the same slope angle on the back side of each ceiling panel so
that it fits all the way in to the corner of the bent wall track.
Bend the bottom of the track up after you nail it up, otherwise you may
not be able to drive the nails in (also depending upon the angle).
Bent track profile above. Same angle trimmed off the edge of the ceiling
I hope this makes sense.

That would probably look the neatest. Use a nice wood trim to finish the joint
between sufaces similar to other trim in the room Good luck.
