SoundProofing Floors

There are numerous different floor solutions and materials for every possible situation. Below you will find the most popular system installed by NMN Soundproofing.

Important points to consider:

  1. What is the maximum height that your floor can be raised?
  2. What will the final floor surface be? (Carpet/Original Floorboards/Laminate ect)
  3. What type of noise do you want to reduce? Your impact and airborne noise to downstairs or airborne noise traveling into your flat
  4. Subfloor structure. Do you have conventional floor joists or a concrete floor?(Is there a void between the floor boards and ceiling boards to fill with insulation)
