How to Soundproof a Basement CeilingBy: Danny Lipford
I’m going to finish a portion of the basement for my 12-year-old daughter and her pals to have a place to “hang out.” This section happens to be under the great room on the main floor. Are there products to help in noise reduction, and, if so, what options exist and how are they installed? -Steve
Start by insulating the space between the basement ceiling joists with a sound dampening insulation like Owens Corning QuietZone fiberglass insulation. Next, you might want to consider using a soundproofing drywall such as QuietRock for the ceiling.
You can watch and read more about QuietRock, on our website at (622) Builders’ Show Special.
Good luck with your project,
