Why can I hear walking on my ceiling?
« on: October 30, 2004, 03:55:35 PM »
I would like to know why I can hear heavy walking and draws opening on my ceiling from the apartment above mine.  I know how to soundproof this -- that is not my problem.  Is it the (poor) construction of the building?  Why is it quiet in some buildings and not in others?  Is wood a poor construction material for noise transmission, as opposed to concrete between floors?  I'm just curious about why this happens -- thanks for any advice on the cause of this type of noise.
