How It Works

Step 1: Assessing Noise Level for Targeted Floor Soundproofing

The first step involves assessing the level and type of noise to determine an appropriate floor sound proofing solution. This is essential to ensure the effectiveness of the overall soundproofing.

Step 2: Prep and Tear Up

Old flooring is removed and the base is prepared, laying the groundwork for the sound proof floor. In some cases, the floor is completely removed, while in others, we prepare and work over the existing floor, adapting to the specific requirements of the project.

Step 3: The First Layer of Acoustic Underlayment

A layer of acoustic underlayment is applied, forming a crucial part of the floor soundproofing process, focusing on reducing sound transmission and vibration.

Step 4: Floor Soundproofing:
The Second Layer of Subfloor

The addition of another subfloor layer is a key step, contributing significantly to the sound proof floor’s effectiveness.

Step 5: The Second Round of Acoustic Underlayment

Further layers of sound proofing materials are added to enhance the floor’s sound insulation capabilities.

Step 6: The Grand Finale:
Installing Your New Floor

The new flooring is installed, with specific techniques employed as part of the floor sound proofing process.

Step 7: Floor Soundproofing Final Touch with Acoustical Caulk

The final step involves sealing with acoustical caulk and finishing to complete the soundproof floor, ensuring both functionality and aesthetics.

This approach to floor sound proofing focuses on achieving a balance between practical sound insulation and maintaining the visual appeal of the flooring, enhancing the overall living experience.
