How to Soundproof a Room
LESLIE: Alright. Let’s go to Orlando now with a question about soundproofing. How can we help you?
ORLANDO: Yes, maybe you can. I have a two-family house and my granddaughter sleeps above me in my bedroom. I can literally hear her walking, talking, everything. And they put wall-to-wall carpet in and it still really didn’t help.
TOM: Orlando, there’s a couple of things that you can do. There is a type of soundproof drywall that you can install. It’s called Quiet Solutions and it’s basically a sound-deadening drywall product.
The other thing that you can do, which would be less expensive, is you can use a product called Green Glue and then a second layer of drywall. The Green Glue …
LESLIE: Is a sound deadening glue.
TOM: … isolates the two pieces of drywall and is a sound-deadening glue. Correct. So those are two ways that you can reduce that noise level.
ORLANDO: OK. Alright, thank you very much, Tom and Leslie.
TOM: You’re welcome, Orlando. Good luck with that project. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
