Sound Proofing


Hey All. Not sure wear to post this.

I'm converting a Lower level / basement to an apartment and trying to get the best result with sound proof the ceiling from 1stfloor. Also keep in mind it will have 2/layer 5/8 sheetrock for 2/hr fire rating

quiet rock is not out of the question. I've used hand full of years ago and was please with results.

Current set up:
- 9ft ceilings.
- 3x12 joist 16 -/+ oc.
- 3/4 t&g red pine sub floor patch / cut in with 3/4 ply. It will get another layer of ply to smoothen it all out.

This place was built in 1851. I own it and have no plans of selling it.

Thank you all in advance for your time.
City.

Re: Sound Proofing


Don't think you can use in-between and still achieve fire rating.

This site may help a little.

Re: Sound Proofing


Use whisper clips and hat channel then your double 5/8's with a layer of GreenGlue in between the drywall layers. Also need to consider the walls and how sound will travel through them.

Re: Sound Proofing


It won't let me edit my other post. You can add resilient channel to the walls and then drywall to help there. Use all 5/8" type x because it is denser. Keep all drywall back from the framing or adjacent drywall 1/8"-1/4" and fill the gap with acoustical sealant before mudding.

Re: Sound Proofing


Put an acoustic tile over the drywall to help with the noise.

Re: Sound Proofing


i may wind up having to do 2/layers staggered joints then a 3rd lower to accommodate can lights ect.
I was watching video on the green stuff interesting.

I remember having to do this few times in the past.

Still waiting on approved plans.

Should be ready in next week or two. Still have plenty of walls to take add some beams and so on.
