Reducing Unwanted Sound with Insulation
Sound is a very persistent traveler; unless contained, it goes over, under, around, and through obstacles. Effective soundproofing requires attention to detail. Sound can travel through gaps in exterior and interior walls that aren’t properly filled, and it can also travel along furnace ducts and plumbing pipes. Placing buffers between ducts or pipes and the framing to which you attach them can reduce much of the noise they transmit. Insulation can considerably reduce unwanted sound.
Weatherseal offers a number of different products for sound control including rockwool, cellulose, open cell spray foam, and fiberglass. Which product performs best is dependent on the construction of the wall assembly. Please contact us to discuss the best scenario and product for your residential or commercial sound control project.
