Ceiling & Floor Soundproofing

Ceiling or Floor Soundproofing is most effective prior to the installation of the finished materials. Various materials that New England Soundproofing offers can be used for hardwood, carpet, or even tile floors. Soundproofing your floors and ceilings help reduce the transmission noise as well as airborne noise from upstairs as well as downstairs.

Unfortunately, most people realize there is a noise issue after construction is completed; however, there are a number of options still available. The solution to soundproof the floor would be to remove the finished flooring, install the appropriate soundproofing material, and reinstall the flooring. Another option is to work on the ceiling below the floor, and either remove the sheetrock and install the appropriate soundproofing material, or go over the existing ceiling and install the appropriate soundproofing material.
