Dear PoP – Soundproofing Your House With Insulation To Block Loud Neighbors Edition

“Dear PoP,

I was wondering if you would mind asking your readers if they ever had insulation put in the walls of their homes to soundproof it from the neighbors. we need to do it to one side of our house and were wondering if anyone out there has done this and what their experiences were.”

Well, I hope folks can provide some recommendations for you regarding the specific question. But I think it begs another question for those who live in rowhomes – can you hear your neighbors through the walls? Is this a common experience? How have people approached the issue of hearing your neighbors through the walls (besides insulation)? Any other techniques?
