partywall one side plaster other side double drywall
« on: September 11, 2001, 02:05:13 AM »
I live in a semi-detached house and there is plaster and lathe on our side and my neighbour has double drywall with resilient channels on the other side.  He hears nothing from us but we hear everything.  Does this method have to be done on both sides to be effective.  We are considering tearing down our plaster and installing the resilient channels and double drywall too but want to make sure that it will really make the difference.  Our floor joists overlap and I have been told that unless these are decoupled then we will never get rid of the noise problem.
If anyone has feedback your help would be greatly appreciated!

A DOUBLE LAYER OF 5/8 DRYWALL BOARD AND R-20 INSULATION AND  (resilient channels) SHOULD BE THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO STOP UNWANTED NOISES! REMEMBER THE MORE DRYWALL THE LESS SOUND! IT'S RATHER BASIC BUT IT'S EFFECTIVE!
