On average, noise coming through a ceiling is the worst soundproofing problem you’re likely to encounter. The reason is two-fold. First, the hard flooring choices of today don’t help the noise control problem at all. Carpet and underlay is used to reduce a lot of the noise. Hardwood, linoleum and tile are not the friends of the neighbor below. Second, a footfall introduces a great deal of energy into a very small cross section of floor. This can overwhelm many common soundproofing efforts. Here’s what you’re up against.
There are about 5 options to sound proof a ceiling/floor noise problem. These include Absorbtion, decoupling, adding mass and dampening. It's best to give us a call to discuss the best option for your situation.
