leaving your old ceiling up and screwing up metal batten to your timber rafters and installing a new ceiling to the metal batten. This is very useful and cost affected because there is less mess from pulling down the old ceiling. If you have insulation in your old ceiling you will not need to either remove or replaced it. Feedback has also been that because there is a 24mm air pocket between the new and old ceiling, this also acts as a good insulator as well.
