Title: concrete building noise from above
Post by: Tas on March 12, 2004, 03:06:04 AM
I live in a condominum apartment building (concrete construction) and I have 2 sound problems:

1.        The people above me have wood and tile floors. I can hear them walking and dropping things. I don't mind doing major work on my side on the ceiling to stop the transfer of noise. I am willing to create a false ceiling with wall board and put the right insulation materials inside.

2.        The drain pipes coming from upstairs go through my walls (concrete and brick). I can hear the water running, toilettes flushing and people using the bathroms upstairs. I would like to expose the pipes and wrap them in some insulation material.

What to do?
