Title: steel vs wood joists
Post by: mike hill on January 08, 2002, 07:01:42 PM
I am building a home theater room in the basement below three bedrooms. I have room height to put up separate ceiling joists, would metal be better than wood in reducing sound transmission ? Either way I was going to float the joists on rubber dampened hangers.
any thoughts would be appriciated.

Hard to beleive, but metal is better than wood.
