Soundproofing During Construction:
Soundproofing your home during initial construction is the simplest, most effective, and inexpensive option. Installing sound insulation (our Quiet Insul), Sound Barrier, or Sound Isolation Clips over the studs, prior to sheet rock, will prevent noise from travelling through the wall. Florida Soundproofing can easily install Sound Barriers during construction of your home.
Soundproofing Over The Existing Wall:
Many of you will find that you need soundproofing AFTER your home or office has already been built. And you don't want to go to the trouble of tearing down walls. Not to worry, we have a solution. With our Green Glue compound and another layer of drywall, we'll effectively reduce the noise transmitted through the wall, without having to remove any of it! Keep in mind, light switches and outlets ought to be sealed to prevent noise from entering.
Triple Leaf Effect!
Watch out for the TRIPLE LEAF EFFECT! This occurs when there is an airgap between two hard surfaces, like doing Channels between sheetrock. This lowers the STC rating and magnifies noise. Call us to learn more about the Triple Leaf Effect!
These are the most common procedures for existing wall soundproofing, there are other procedures available, call for more details.
