Between floors
« on: June 24, 2001, 12:18:44 PM »
Hi there - I rent a bungalow with two apartments
(I am in the basement)and the sound between them
is CRAZY! There is 8 inch space between the floor
and the ceiling so downstairs I hear them sneeze!
I went to my hardware store and they said that I
would have to take down the ceiling - stick in
soundproof material and regyproc - seems like a
dirty big deal - do you have any other suggestions
for how I could do it and not hear my neighbours
upstairs anymore? I would like to buy the house but
won't if the sound stays so bad.
Thanks - rebecca

Simple solution: follow the info at the web link below!
If you can put material on top of the floor above, go to: http://www.soundproofing.org/infopages/flooring.htm
