Do you want to soundproof areas of your home? Whether you want to block the noise from basement suite renters or keep things quiet for children sleeping in their bedrooms, developments in material composition can provide more options for lowering sound transmission. Soundproofing is a big job, and there are many details to consider.
Exceptional Drywall Contractor in Surry is an experienced drywall contractor specializing in soundproofing. They share some things to consider when lowering sound transmission in a home:
Use the right materials
Soundproofing can be done through drywalling, but it’s essential to use suitable materials to do so. Installing a double layer of traditional drywall, or using more specialized products, can have an effect. Newer soundproofing drywall products have been specially created to have sound-dampening qualities through their composition. A mixture of compounds in the inner layer of the drywall makes them more resilient and less transmissible to sound waves. There are varying classifications for drywall panels, so choose a material with a higher Sound Transmission Class.
Be strategic where you use it
Drywalling is a messy business and can be costly to do an entire house. If you are only concerned about noise coming from specific areas, consider soundproofing those. For example, you might want to soundproof your home theatre room to reduce noise blasting through the rest of the house. In this instance, you’ll want Exceptional Drywall Contractor to soundproof the walls and ceiling if the theatre is on the lower level. There are also options for reducing noise transmission through doors that could be helpful depending on your specific needs.
Hire a professional
As mentioned above, there are many different materials used when drywalling, especially for soundproofing. Therefore, DIYers should not attempt significant drywall projects. You’ll need the right materials, product and installation knowledge, equipment, and experience with fastening, mudding, taping, and sanding. Without the correct tools, advanced skills, and knowledge, you won’t achieve flawless and long-lasting results. Plus, mistakes can be costly and time-consuming to fix. If you want to soundproof areas of your home, or are renovating and need drywall installation, always hire an experienced company like Exceptional Drywall Contractor.
