Soundproofing/deadening


When finishing out our basement, I used fiberglass batt insulation between the floor joists, then proceeded with installing the drop ceiling with mid grade tiles.

I am completely happy with it and will do the same thing on the other half of the basement when I complete it. There is a noticeable difference between the halves from a sound perspective. The part that is not finished, you can hear the TV upstairs thru the floor.

For the part that is finished, which is setup as a theater/play area, you cannot hear the kids playing thru the floor, and most movie audio (with the exception of the subwoofer)

My upstairs floor is a combination of wood, tile and carpet.

It's considered a bit rude to dredge up old threads and post to them.

Especially when posting a link to an external website selling products for it. Does more to make you look like a spammer than anything else.

When comparing products, keep in mind the cost, including waste, relative to the expected improvement. Improvement as demonstrated with independent lab data, not anecdotal.

Soundproofing is one area where you certainly do not always get what you pay for (expect). Excellent results are obtained with standard 5/8" drywall if deployed properly.

When redoing my basement I merely opted for stuffing fiberglass batt insulation between the joists and then installing drywall. It has the effect of making the basement a little warmer (a plus in the winter) and also cutting down on sound. Is it soundproof? Certainly not, but I'll say the cost of at least stuffing the joists w/ insulation is noticeable and worth it, both upstairs and downstairs. Without insulation between the joists and HW floors above, everything gets transmitted through the floor.
