Dear PoP – Soundproofing Options

Photo from PoPville flickr user hellomarkers!

“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.
