Condo below
« on: October 15, 2001, 10:09:07 PM »
I have a one bedroom condo unit which has very thin
floors that enable me to hear everything below.  My
neighbor plays her music and I can especially hear the
bass of the music speakers.  My question is how
effective will the floormat be in this regard.  Also
will a combination of the vinyl flooring and the
floormat be a more effective barrier against sound
from below.
Thanks Scott

Yes, that is a good combination where thin floors have little or no soundproofing of their own.
It may take several layers and if the floor would be built up too high, you could consider lead as a viable addition.
