“Dear PoP,

We’ve got noise issues between our English basement apartment and our unit on the first floor of our rowhouse, and we’re looking at blowing in insulation and building a new ceiling in the basement unit with QuietRock, a special sound-resistant sheet rock. (Fortunately our basement ceiling is 8 feet-plus.)

Can anyone tell us about their adventures in soundproofing and who has done a good job on that kind of work?”

We’ve been having lots of success with these types of questions this week. Does anyone have any suggestions?

On a related topic we spoke about loud neighbors here.
