Title: Soundproofing upstairs Neighbor (Open Pipe, Ceiling)
Post by: ny12345 on March 02, 2018, 01:33:36 AM
Hello everyone I need help soundproofing my pipes and ceiling.  I need advice on how I should go upon this. I was thinking buying roxul to fill in the hole and then installing Sheetrock onto the ceiling in order to block out the noise whenever my neighbors walk and open doors. Please I am looking for the most effective way to soundproof this situation

Wrapping the pipes in mass loaded vinyl w/closed cell foam will solve the pipe issue and acoustic caulking the gap around the pipe where it penetrates the ceiling.
As for the impact noise from above would require drywall removal and a clip and channel system would need to be installed followed by double 5/8" drywall.
