Title: old house walls v new house walls
Post by: a gibson on January 26, 2002, 05:16:21 AM
hello.
i am thinking of moving into a mid terrace built circa 1888.the walls are stone or brick and about 9 inches thick with no cavity air space obviously.is this type of wall any good at blocking neighbour noise or are more modern houses with cavity walls better?.
i used to live in a old terrace years ago and seem to remember the walls offered virtually no sound proofing at all,this surprised me as they were quite thick.
so,are old houses any good for a quite life?
thanks for any help.
