basement remodel
« on: March 31, 2004, 12:27:11 AM »
I will be finishing off my basement soon and one of my kids will live down there.  I don’t think that I need to go to the level that all these bands go, but I would like to make it a little quieter.  Would channels or clips be enough or should I use mats also.  What size mats.  The PVC plumbing pipes are very noisy also.  Can the mats be wrapped around them or is something else better.  Unfortunately due to height restrictions I am going to use a ceiling directly on the joists, not dropped.  This ceiling is like a drop ceiling but the tracks go right on the joists.  I figure that  mats in between the joists would help.  Could I put a thin pad under this track.  I also would like to build a box around my sump pump crock (other side of basement) and related plumbing to quiet that also.  Thanks for any help.
