Soundproofing stairwell/hallway
« on: January 20, 2001, 11:05:13 PM »
I live in a two family house with an basement apartment.
There is a great deal noise/voices that travels up the
stairwell between floors from the tenants below.  The
door is at the top of the stairs, stairway is carpeted.
Any suggestions on what the best solution would be
to help eliminate, or greatly reduce the noise level?
Thanks.

A: Make sure the door is well sealed and a solid core door.  See the info link for full info on soundproofing doors. Is it possible to add another door at the bottom of the stairs?
