The Benefits of Soundproofing

Maybe you live by the airport, or close to a noisy urban street. Maybe you want to convert your apartment into a music studio without disturbing the neighbours. Soundproofing your house or a room in your house is a great way to keep out excess noise. Many people are curious about soundproofing their home but don’t know what the process actually involves. Here are some things you should know if you’re considering soundproofing your home.

How Does Soundproofing Work?

The process of making a house soundproof is fairly simple. For new buildings, an insulating material is placed inside the walls before drywall is installed. Then the dry wall is put over top of the insulating material and the process is complete. For existing buildings, the process is similar—the insulating material is inserted into the walls through a hole in the dry wall. Once the material is placed inside the walls, the hole in the dry wall is patched up so it looks exactly like it did before.

Do I have to Soundproof My Whole House?

Soundproofing can be done for an entire house—if you need some relief from a nearby train track or highway, for example—or a single room can be soundproofed.  If you want to make an in-home theatre or music studio, for example, without disrupting the rest of your family, a single-room soundproofing might be best for you.

Soundproof installation is a simple process, but it requires a professional to be done properly. Soundproofing done incorrectly can cause electrical and plumbing issues, so it’s important that you don’t try to do it on your own.
