Just looking for answers to the same noise reduction dilemna you faced. It's finally time to install wall to wall carpet for my 2nd floor. We've been living with the T&G main floor ceiling as our 2nd floor flooring while we finish bigger projects. Now the time has come to carpet and I'm overwhelmed by all of the advice and choices yet have lived through 2 years of hearing the 2nd floor goings on so know I need a very good sound proofing strategy. Are you happy with what you used? If you would recommend it, what did you use? Any learnings are appreciated even though it has been some time since you faced this dilemna, I appreciate your time and insights.
Hi Tim, didn't you recommend nailing that tar board to the framing then a seperate lathe strip for the drywall to attach too, in an old post ? I thought I had it right, please refresh my memory, Thanks
If you want to get the soundproof room you can use any type of noise barrier wall which is most effective for reduction of all kind of noise from your room you can also use insulated tarps from your room.
