Title: Soundproof a low basement ceiling
Post by: Todd on February 06, 2001, 10:04:41 PM
Hello,
I'm trying to sound proof a low ceiling for a basement.  I can hear the renters walk on the hardwoods upstairs.  I would like to know what to put in between the 8 inch joices before I put up the drywall.  I heard foam and drywall is all I need??

A: It will be a problem to soundproof against a wood floor above.  You'll need to do the max to get results.

I am currently living in the basement of a house and when the residents above me walk around thier floors squeek... i would also like to eliminate noise from voices and dogs... is there any way i can do these things, at least minimize the sound without having to take the carpet out upstairs or remove the drywall?

Hi,
Have you thought about moving or finding another basement dwelling, you troll? Another and much cheaper solutuion could be earplugs and or drinking a gallon of nyquil immediately when you start to hear any noises (ei. voices, sqeaks and/or domicile pets). Let me know if this remedies your problem.
