Soundproofing in triplex
« on: March 02, 2011, 04:45:02 PM »
We are doing a complete gut job on a triplex buit around 1890. We have removed all interior walls and part of the staircase, we are keeping the original floors and on the first floor we are keeping the original tin ceiling. I have 3 questions:

Regarding the first floor unit with the original ceiling and wood floors- is their anything we can do besides soundproofing the walls?

As we pulled out the stairs from the 2nd floor to the 3rd floor and will be rebuilding them- what is the best way to soundproof the new ones? I know that they need to be "decoupled" from the walls, but want to understand what this would involve and the best way to go about doing it.

The original stairs from the first floor to the second floor will remain, however what can I do to help soundproof them a bit more? We will not be moving them, however with everything open is there something I can do to help with the noise?

Thanks for your help!
