I need to block out the sound from upstairs. The folks who own the
unit above mine are incredibly loud walkers and have chosen to ignore
my requests that they consider that I'm hearing them pound around.
Rather than start a neighbor war, I thought I'd research what I could
do to my unit (other than move out) to get that noise out of my life.
I want to block the sound out. Will an acoustic ceiling help with
that? If not, is there any home improvement project I could do to
achieve that result?
There is very little you can do to block out the noise.
Is the unit above you carpeted?
Acoutic ceiling will do more to reduce the sound (echo) in your unit.
If you are in an apt. try complaining to the manager....
but reality...you will probably need to move
Low frequencies require the most insulation , Low bass frequencies are
4 ft long+ compared to high frequencies which are under apx 10000 hz
1/2" long , ever wonder why you hear boom boxes Bass, well , long
frequency, and it takes 4x the power to reproduce low frequencies to
be heard. As well as great insulsation for LF so if you have an 8 ft
ceiling hang 4 ft of fiberglass under it , if your a midgit you
will be ok . If not stoop to 4ft. Or Move.
if you own the place
there is channel made for that
the channel 20 years a go called rc1
gets naled to the celing and drywall gets screwed too it
the rc1 channel
helps icelate your dry wall from the uper unit
