Ceiling & Floor Soundproofing

Ceiling or Floor Soundproofing is best to do prior to installation of finished materials, during construction. We offer various solutions for hardwood, carpet, or even tile floors. Soundproofing your floors and ceilings will lower airborne and transmission noise from both downstairs and upstairs.

However, most people realize there is a noise problem after construction is finished. Nevertheless, there are still many options available. The floor can still be soundproofed by taking out the finished flooring, installing the right soundproofing product, and reinstalling the flooring. Another method is to install soundproofing on the ceiling below the floor, removing the sheetrock prior to install, or install the soundproofing material over the existing ceiling.
