Soundproofing against traffic noise
« on: January 05, 2005, 04:18:12 PM »
We live on a very busy noisey street and want to do some sounproofing in a guest bedroom that we are remodeling. We will be taking down the sheetrock to add insulation into the hollow exterior walls. The bedroom is small and I do not want to lose space by building a double wall. What is the best way to improve the STC value? I have read about Quiet Rock at the Quiet Solutions website. Is this a significantly better product than sheetrock? Are there any other products worth considering? Does anyone have recommendations on insulation materials with better sound protection value?

Hello Sir , Quiet Rock is a good product. and the Quiet Solutions web site is informative. If you did decide to use this product consider using others in conjunction.
    To resolve or reduce you noise situation, you will need products which provide mass, barrier and absorber benefits.
    Mass will be added to your solution by choosing several disimilar materials to combine. First, choose a qualified barrier material called mass loaded vinyl. Then, select a versatile absorber made of closed cell foam.
    These  noise control products can be purchased in a variety iof thickness and weight.

Are you considering inside and outside solutions?

Thanks for you question?
