green glue to deaden common wall noise..?
« on: June 08, 2009, 12:00:36 AM »
Hi all..

I've been reading a lot about soundproofing techniques over the past few months. I have a noisy new neighbor on the other side of the duplex condo. Our kitchens, for example, are next to each other (mirror image) and I can hear a lot of low frequency thumping (doors and drawers slamming etc). I was thinking of adding a layer of drywall with green glue between.

There seems to be a lot of good things said about the product, but then there are also some not-so-good results reported. But for common wall noise, short of yanking the wall apart and starting over, does the GG work? Any experiences you'd like to share..?

Thanks!

If you dont decouple from the structure you will most likely have to add more than one layer of drywall and green glue. 2-3 layers easy for the impact issue.
