In these days when people no longer reside in a 5 bedroom ranch house in the
country, but rather in a 2 bedroom flat in the middle of New York City with a
bar or restaurant directly above them, sound control issues are critical.
We have found that since the horrendous 9-11 incident that peace and
solitude have become paramount in the minds of our brothers and sisters,
particularly in New York City. This feeling, however, seems to have
permeated the entire country. This is precisely the reason that Jay Romano,
Renowned Real Estate Columnist for the New York Times called upon the
experts at ‘Soundproofing America’ to provide sound and timely advice to the
wonderful people of New York City, as well as people through the United
States and the world as a whole, who don’t necessarily know where to begin
when they have noise control issues.
Soundproofing a wall is one of the easiest soundproofing projects out there. If you
are willing to remove the existing drywall and start from scratch, your chances of
getting great soundproofing increase exponentially.
To soundproof, you would remove your existing drywall to expose the studs
behind the drywall. At this point you would add batts of insulation into the stud
cavities. Two of the best soundproof insulations are Rock Wool and Ultra Touch
cotton insulation. These insulation batts can be purchased from a local insulation
or drywall supply warehouse. We at Soundproofing America also carry these
products and can have them delivered right to your door.
The next step would be to purchase rolls of Mass Loaded Vinyl Sound Barrier or
(MLV for short). The MLV will be stapled or nailed directly to the wood studs
using an industrial air drive stapler or nail gun. The MLV will cover the entire wall
much like a soundproof membrane. It is best to overlap the seams as you cover the
entire wall surface of the studs with the MLV. Once the MLV is installed, you will
want to caulk and tape the overlap as well as the perimeter of the vinyl membrane.
Now that the MLV is sealed it is time to install a new layer of 5/8” drywall. Get a
good quality drywall like National or US Gypsum. With the drywall installed you
can tape the seams and texture it to suit your taste. That’s one of the best ways to
soundproof any demising wall.
