Soundproofing your walls If your neighbours are always arguing, they have a yappy dog or they play musical instruments, you could be at the end of your tether. Perhaps it's you who's playing your guitar or drums and keeping them awake. Or maybe your building is a factory with noisy machinery. Soundproofing your walls could be the way to go. It's not as expensive as you might think and products are easy to install.
Before you start soundproofing your walls, though, you must decide what type of construction you have. Most likely, your walls will be either timber stud or masonry block. You'll need to know what kind of soundproofing issues you have for your walls: what sort of sounds are coming through? You'll also need to consider whether your premises are domestic, commercial or some other type.
When you soundproof your walls, one of the main issues is that fitting effective soundproofing materials will mean you lose a certain amount of room space.
