    depending on the ht. of your ceiling you might be able to install a dropped ceiling. It hanging system is a grid panel and the ceiling panels are placed in the grid. Since you can get replacement panels, you just removed what’s damaged, and insert new.

    We had to do this in our home downstairs when the ice maker upstairs leaked by installing a hanging ceiling. Any big box store will have everything you need.

    You see more and more, putting wood on the ceiling. Literally you can put a floor on your ceiling. I’ve seen beadboard paneling as well.

    Try tiles, the kind that you just glue or nail up.

      I have some pretty good size holes and I have a small skylight but tiles sound like an easy option. Ceiling tiles that glue on? Never heard of these but ceiling pieces that sounds like a good option. I do have some bowing in the ceiling but could probably remove and put bigger tiles maybe. Sounds good! Maybe I’ll check into something like that. Thank you! You’ve given me some ideas now
