I recently moved into a new 1920's converted ground floor flat, which
I have now discovered has problem noise from a certain area of the
ceiling. The room consists of a living room/kitchen area divided by a
large concrete supporting strut. Basically the ceiling which covers
the kitchen area of the room is "hollow" when tapped, where as the
ceiling covering the living room is made of solid concrete. So as you
can guess, the concrete ceiling is excellent for soundproofing
footsteps and voices where as the "hollow" ceiling transmits every
bang/footstep/voice etc etc. As you can imagine, this becomes
extremely noisy, especially from people cooking in the above kitchen.
I am now looking into soundproofing this 8x8 kitchen ceiling. Was
looking into the services provided by this company:
Can anybody advise me on whether this solution would help in my case,
or any other solution which may help.
Many thanks for any advice,
You have a project that can't be answered in a sentence or two. You
may want to get the EPA's manual: "Quieting in the Home". It covers
many aspects of sound control in the home and has illustrations, as
well. More details at www.supersoundproofing.biz
It's also available as a download, preserving the diagrams, etc.
