Is MLV available in Canada?
« on: January 29, 2004, 02:25:16 AM »
I am building a house with an in-law apartment in the basement, that I would like to soundproof as much as possible. From what I read here MLV and resilient channels are the way to go for the ceiling soundproofing. Are these available for sale in Canada?

Should I be using both MLV and resilient channels?

Also, where is the best place to put the MLV, on the basement ceiling or the floor above? Thank you.

I would suggest you use Quietrock. Costs about the same as MLV but it is much better.
Saw it on this show called Holmes on Homes.
Hope this link helps.

Well, I would challenge that statement. I have had to go in after quiet rock was used on many of projects and replace it with our SYSTEMS. The reason I say systems is because the materials you use are only a portion of the solution.
If you are trying to reduce impact noise and you take down drywall and re hang quiet rock without decoupling you will have done nothing to reduce your problem.
Principles and installaion dictate results. Materials equal value of reduction vs. cost.
