Title: Sleepless because of squeaky floor boards above
Post by: Bernice on October 10, 2005, 05:22:22 PM
The first couple of months we moved into this older apt complex, it was heavenly...but we found out that was because the people that live above us were on vacation for 2 months. Our neighbors seem to have an annoying habit of pacing around above our bedroom for hours on end in the middle of the night. Because our apt complex is so old, it has wooden floors and not cement, meaning the old floorboards squeal every time the person above us walks around. Since we are only renting, we need something that will sound proof our bedroom so we can sleep at night...that won't do permanent damage to our apt.

My wife and I have almost the same situation.  We are at our wits end.

We plan to purchase a few sheets of 'sound' board this weekend and suspend it from our ceiling.

Hopefully someone from this wedsite will responde with useful information.
