Soundproofing a ceiling during new construction is the best way, as it's the most inexpensive and most effective method. Having the drywall off and joist showing allows for proper installation of the soundproofing material. The goal is to block transmission as well as airborne noises coming from the room above, as well as the room below.
Keep in mind, everything in the ceiling must be sealed! Everything, including wall seams and light fixtures, must be sealed. Proper installation is most effective. New construction ceiling soundproofing also works in concert with our floor soundproofing.
The most common ceiling soundproofing is by getting right to the joists. From there, you can put soundproofing insulation in between the joists, and MLV Sound Barrier and our Clip System on the joist. Add drywall, plaster, and paint to finish the job! This is the most common soundproofing structure for ceilings.
There are still various options to soundproof your ceiling, depending on your budget and other restrictions. To contact a consultant and find out how to create your best soundproof ceiling, please call us at (813) 803-8292.
