Sound Insulation

I want to insulate a ceiling for sound. From what I've discovered so far, teh best insulatin to use for that is made out of wool, not fiberglass. It's grey in color, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Does anyone know where I can find this product?

Is the the best for sound insulation?

Sound Insulation

Search Rockwool you will find many offerings.

And yes from what I have read, rockwool does provide sound insulation, but there is nothing that will take the place of sound proof construction methods.

But most basements don't have the head height to build a self supported ceiling seperate from the floor joist above.


When its all said and done there is usually more said than done
