Curtains should work well and provide an inexpensive method of soundproofing your garge without remodeling.  For the long term, a more permanent installation would be better, but much more expensive.



However, we don't have many of these very heavy  110" drapes, so decide soon!

what exactly are the curtains made out of?  are they simply thick curtains?  or do they contain some special soundproofing material?  if so, what is it?

also, how much does one 110" x 110" curtain weigh?

EK,



These curtains are a polyester blend, and they have a sound blocking material sewn into the inside liner. As B.J. stated, the curtains will work, but if you are serious about keeping the neighbors from hearing your music, you will need to do some more serious soundproofing. Go to the website www.soundproofing.org and scroll down to the yellow box, (on the homepage) and click on the header that says "Band practice". This gives some detailed instruction on constructing a room within a room in your garage.

 These methods can be done by anyone with a little determination, and some minimal construction skills.

EK, I am sure someone in the band has a friend in the building trades that could help you with this project.

If you need more information, please feel free to give us a call at one of the numbers below. Thanks for the post EK.
