Soundproofing Your Home To Keep The Noise Out

Table of Contents

In Western Canada, noise pollution has become a significant issue. Congestion and traffic noise are growing in Western Canadian cities, from the urban center to the suburbs. Getting out to the suburbs is not an option since traffic noise is everywhere. This loudness is causing many restless nights. Many of us are under a lot of needless stress as a result of this.

There is a lot of noise in a large city, such as Calgary. Even in a big city like Vancouver, Saskatoon, Edmonton, and Winnipeg, your house should be your refuge, even if you live in a city. There is just one problem: several large city apartment complexes and condominiums in Western Canada aren't soundproof.

Noise may flow through a building due to shared walls and ceilings — both airborne and structure-borne noise, as well as noise from surrounding routes. Developers seldom create noise-impenetrable barriers in today's fast-paced development.

There are several ways to get some peace and quiet

The first step is to separate your ceiling joists from your drywall. You may isolate the floor and ceiling with our sound isolation clip, then route a resilient channel. You may either choose to install your new drop ceiling with our isolation hangers which enable a loose, hanging connection between the ceiling joists and your new ceiling. You could choose to install your new ceiling with the hanging hooks we provide. In both cases, we suggest installing l safe and sound insulation in your walls/ceilings to improve soundproofing and heat retention.

If the noise is mostly coming from the walls, you may decouple them, which means mechanically separating two adjacent walls to make it more difficult for sound to travel through. Again, clips can accomplish this, but better results will be obtained by combining the clips with two layers of drywall with soundproofing damping compound in between and a layer of our mass loaded viny), this helps with lower frequencies such as bass from a subwoofer or deeper voices.

Our Soundproof Windows, which are placed in front of or behind your current window and reduce sound by 75-90 percent, is one of our best-selling items. We have the windows tailored to suit your existing window, so it does not take away any of the functionality your current window has. Whether it slides side to side, up and down, or pushes outwards, we make sure you can still open the window when required.

The most common complaint we get regarding soundproofing, or rather its lack thereof, is from "footfall" or "impact" sounds, particularly from customers who live in multi-family structures such as a condo or townhouse. The only method to reduce impact noise is to install a sound control floor underlayment underneath your existing carpet, tile, or hardwood floors. The underlayments we offer come in a variety of IIC ratings and thicknesses, so be sure to consult with a Hush City Soundproofing product expert before selecting the right sound control floor underlayment.

The best way to avoid flanking noise is to keep your pipes and/or ducts clean. Most frequently, we utilize our Anti-Vibe Liquid Damping Paste. It is a simple to use solution that you can apply to your pipes and vents with a sprayer or roller. It minimizes the noise transmitted from vibrating surfaces, such as pipes and flooring, to another room or level.

Other, less intrusive alternatives include putting two layers of drywall with damping compound in between, as well as installing our Decorative Acoustic Panels, which are specially intended to absorb noise. Any soft, pliable furniture or images placed on the wall will absorb part of the sound, but only to a limited degree.

With hundreds of options to select from at Hush City Soundproofing, whichever method you choose to soundproof your apartment or condo, make sure it's appropriately done - doing so ensures you will accomplish your objective of peace.
