We want to create a spare bedroom in our basement and we want to reduce the sound of people and our dogs walking on the laminate flooring on the first level. Iíve torn down the old drywall ceiling and plan to put two layers of Owens Corning QuiteZone insulation between the floor joists.
My question deals with how to re-install the ceiling. They make some sort of metal rail that isolates the drywall from the joists. Iím not sure what it is called or where to get it. My thought was to do basically the same thing but with 1x2 strips running across the joists.
Would this work almost as well? If not, what are those strips called and Iíll look for them?
