    Soundproofing

    Posted by Hatter help on 4/11/2019, 10:55:03

    Anyone any experience of soundproofing internal walls between houses (noisy neighbours). I've had a quote for a slimline wall solution (whatever that means) at 1500 per room. Any idea if that's a good price?

      15mm soundblock boards ti 79mm metal stud ( not attach to wall ) for ceiling metal mf ceiling fixed up with rubber bungs as that will quash the sound

        Just had it done - but some more to do. Firstly you can't soundproof only muffle some of the noise. Impact noise (doors banging footsteps, brats jumping up and down) will transmit via their floorboard through the wall. So no chance of reducing that. Airborne noise such as voices can be reduced.

        If you're going to do it then do it properly. we spent just over 2k on the two party walls. We had a stud wall put up 10 to 20 mm from the party wall with insulating tape between the wooden frame and the wall, ceiling and floor. The stud wall mustn't touch the party wall. Rockwool - min density 60 - then two layers of acoustic 12.5mm plasterboard. Plastered and painted.

        Impact noise - no difference. We still get airborne flanking noise via the attic so more rockwool to go there.

        The fireplace is also a culprit (I think next door have an open fireplace not blocked up so it acts like a megaphone) - it transmits airborne noise so we are going to stuff rockwool up the chimney - again min 60 density.

          bloody hell RADSB, wouldn't it have been cheaper and certainly less aggravation to have moved?

            A brats scream is as loud as rock music but he won't be a brat forever so no need to move. The worse thing is that the brat shouts so everyone else shouts. He is getting to age when they'll introduce an "indoor voice"

            Why are you just not allowed to fix a stud wall direct to your side of a party wall. Bring forward all skirting, coving, sockets etc and re-plaster?

            Do concrete floors still 'leak' noise like floorboards?

              We wanted to create a cavity between the properties to make three bariers to the sound - air, rockwool and acoustic boards.

                How much room space did you lose using this method?

                  around 110mm. 70mm CLS plus 25mm for the acoustic boards, the rest was cavity

              If you want to keep the price down I would just dot and dab 50mminsulation board on the wall and then go over that with 15mm soundblock board it will be as effective as building a false stud wall.
              I did this for friend who lives in a house co-joining a pub and she is very happy now she can't hear the drunken rabble.
              which me and my mates have apologised for.

                  Knock on your neighbours front door.

                  When they answer, dont say a word, just punch them as hard as you possibly can straight in the face.

                    How big is the room? Try stapling egg boxes (empty) to the walls, that should keep the noise out

                        had a friend once with noisy neighbours, no amount of asking nicely helped.
                        Friend went on a weeks holiday, set loads of loud alarm clocks against dividing bedroom wall, all set to go off hourly between 1am and 6am

                        noise had diminished after that
