At Only Basements we have clients always bringing up concerns of noise. Overhead noise can be harsh especially if you have a busy household living upstairs. However even ambient noise can travel such a sound coming from a TV or stereo. To deafen unwanted noise on a budget you will either have to add a soundproofing barrier to your ceiling, walls or both. Adding rugs and carpets to high traffic rooms may help, but a better solution especially for those who know noise may be an issue you will need to install a material that can absorb or interrupt sound. Creating a gap or inserting a non-conductive barrier prevents noise from vibrating through ceiling and floor joists. In effect, you’re adding a second, separate floor or ceiling therefore reducing the ability for sound to travel.
