LESLIE: William in New York needs some help with soundproofing. Tell us what’s going on.
WILLIAM: Hi. I have a house that used to be on a very quiet street but now I get a great deal of traffic noise. I replaced the original house window. I had a storm window and I understand that it is a type of window that does absorb the noise. It helped a little bit but I’m just wondering if there’s anything else that I can do to keep out as much of the traffic noise as possible.
TOM: William, you know, there’s a new class of drywall out there that’s designed to be very, very silent; it’s sound-engineered so it suppresses the sounds that you may be hearing from the street. Now, I think in the future you’re going to find more and more homes, especially those in busy areas or homes that have specific needs like home studios and media rooms and places like that, that use this product. It’s called Supress and it’s sound-engineered drywall. It basically goes up much the same as regular drywall would…
TOM: … but it’s engineered to reduce sound dramatically.
TOM: It’s very, very effective stuff.
LESLIE: And it comes in different thicknesses and the half-inch thickness is the one that you would use to sort of upgrade your apartment so you don’t – you can sort of sheath over your existing drywall.
WILLIAM: I see.
TOM: The website is SupressProducts.com. S-U-P-R-E-S-S Products.com or there’s a telephone number where you can get some additional information and that is 800-456-4061.
WILLIAM: Alright. That sounds good.
WILLIAM: (overlapping voices) Thank you very much.
TOM: (overlapping voices) Alright, William. You’re welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
