soundproofing garage conversion on a budget
« on: August 05, 2003, 10:53:04 PM »
Dear Bob:  Glad I found your site...now for the question!  I am having a 1200 square foot metal garage with wood internal framing converted into a dog grooming salon.  It will have separate rooms inside.  It has a concrete slab floor that I'll paint with an epoxy paint.  It will have 8 foot tall walls.  All of these soundproofing materials are quite expensive, so I'd like to know what would be the best way to soundproof this building?  Since I have to buy insulation and drywall and plywood to create the ceiling anyway...what materials should I use?  Oh, the studs already in the building are 2 X 6...so I have around 6 inches of space to play with.
Thanks, Pat

Pat,

The soundproofing materials at first glance may appear to be expensive, but in reality that are no more costly than the normal building materials that you aquire from the local Home Improvement Centers.
To soundproof your metal garage I would use a combination of the closed cell foams and the mass loaded vinyl (MLV) .
The installation methods are explained in detail on the website or you can simply click on one of the links listed below. Thanks for your posting  Pat, if you have additional questions please do not hesitate to call.
