why dobled floor doesn't work
« on: February 17, 2004, 05:48:50 AM »
I live in a prewar tenement in downtown NYC which means I hear noises not only from my upstairs neighbor but from the one next to me and those two who live floors up. The landlord has recently renovated the upstairs apartment. Another floor was built on top of the old floor with about 2" of free space and a 1" rubber mat in between. The new wood floors made no difference, it's just as noisy as it used to be. What is the reason for this? How do I explain to my landlord that the job did not do the trick?
Thanks in advance,
