Soundproofing Floors On-Wood Framing

soundproofing-floors-on-wood-framingPRIVACY ULTIMATE UNDERLAY™ is available in many thicknesses, and the selection should be based on your expectations of "privacy". In residential projects the higher the weight of the product is directly proportional to the sound blocking of speech, tv, home theater, kids playing, etc.

If you have no insulation in the ceiling cavity, 1/2" drywall on the ceiling below, and a single layer of plywood for your sub floor, you should be able to hear almost everything from below and from above. In this scenario you cannot overdo it on thickness; minimum 3/8" is required to make a measurable difference.
