Questions & Answers

Soundproofing

If I mount this on a hollow core door, will it reduce the sound coming through the door?
Asked by: HelloDog
Yes - it's not very pretty though - You will want to cover with a thin sheet of plywood or fabric after.

sound deadening

Can this product be used in a cieling under roll insulation between rafters to help deaden sound in rooms with high cielings and a very open floor plan?
Asked by: dav65
We put this on the ceilings and walls of a warehouse and our sound improved dramatically. We hosted a concert and the engineer said it was one of the best sounding venue's like that, that he had worked in. It killed all the echo but didn't absorb all the sound to the point where it feels dead when you talk. - We left it all exposed but a cheap solution would be to throw some acoustic fabric over the top. Its not going to be as good as the professional solutions but you can do a whole room for $200! So if you are on a budget - do it!

Sound Choice 1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. R-1.32 Insulation Sheathing Board is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from good stuff although some claim that doesn't reduce sound transmission i disagree. No material by it self reduces sound transmission. Its the way you do it and this material when applied the right way is an excellent choice of sound deadening. This is like compressed waist of card board. and reduces dramatically reflections on a room. You can use it as a resilient channel cutting it in strips an applying drywall on it. You can cut it with an utility knife easily. The resistance to the drywall screws is amazing. If you want to apply it in its full length under the drywall i can tell you that it holds the screws like no other. Using it to cover the drywall in a small room like a vocal booth you achieve almost a deaf room. Easy to sand the edges too. I'm very pleased with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good solution for my NOISY Neighbor I moved into our condo a month ago & we couldn't believe how much noise we could hear from the neighboring unit. We looked around for something to stop the sound & found this at the local Depot. when we called their tech desk, they were very helpful. It took me and a friend better part of a whole day to fix what the builder wouldn't. if you are hearing noise from your neighbor's TV, buy this stuff, it works.

Our wall we share is extremely thin to the point we can hear our neighbors conversations in our apartment. I decided to make a large canvas and attach this sound deadening board to the back to help with the noise. It was easy to work with, just be sure to wear gloves since its really easy to get splinters from. Also it is very hard to transport without damaging it since it is so soft. As for the noise it helped slightly. It definitely muffled the voices but it did not lower the noise level. I understand i am not using this board for its intended purpose (built within the wall) so i wasn't expecting magic. Overall this was a suffice product for what i was using it for. I would recommend using foam on top of the board for added deadening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a quieter furnace I purchased this product to apply in the surrounding area and door of my a/c furnace closet. The material cuts very easy with a box cutter. I used drywall screws and washers to mount it and it cut down the noise DRAMATICALLY! I am not sure of the insulating qualities but sound deadening is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can you hear me now? Dramatically deduced the notice from furnace and wash are to nearby bedroom, for around 20 dollars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as dense as we had expected. If anyone fell... Not as dense as we had expected. If anyone fell into it, they would have put a hole in it. Had to overlay it with an additional layer of 1/4” sheet-rock. As far as sound deadening, it’s great though! A nice muffled noise from the inside of the bedroom we completed. Our homeowner works nights.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Getting the best out of this product. First, be clear if you want to absorb sound as to reduce echoes, or prevent sound from travelling from one zone to another. I recommend it more for the former use. You can get even better results if you space it off the wall or ceiling by about one inch, in effect leaving a clear space between wall and panel.

For sound board you would think that they would be square and pretty close to the same width. Not in this case. Some of them are 3/4" out of square and up to 1/4" wider (or narrower as the case may be). You either have to trim most of them or get acoustical caulk and caulk all joints before you tape them. I would recommend them only because they are the only thing to get around here. Plan on taking almost twice the amount of time to install these as you originally plan on.
