Ceiling Soundproofing

Do you have noisy neighbours upstairs? Or is airborne and impact noise travelling through your ceiling from heavy stomping, televisions or music? At dB Soundproofing, our soundproofing experts can advise you and install professional ceiling soundproofing solutions.

Soundproof Your Existing Ceiling And Reduce Noise From Above

dB Soundproofing are specialists in soundproofing ceilings, by using soundproofing methods that will not compromise on the size of your room or by removing your existing ceilings. dB Soundproofing can help you if:

  • You are disturbed by noisy neighbours or family upstairs
  • You can hear footsteps through your ceiling
  • You can hear music, TVs or even people talking through your ceiling

Many properties are built with plasterboard, or lathe and plaster, ceilings which are fixed onto wooden ceiling joists with boards or a chipboard floor laid over the joists, thereby creating a void or cavity, which can be filled with soundproofing materials.

How Do We Soundproof Ceilings?

In order to stop airborne noise transferring through a ceiling dB Soundproofing London would look at installing sound insulation in the cavity between the ceiling and floor. This method of ceiling sound insulation is carried out on new build and converted properties to meet the current building regulations. If you are soundproofing an existing ceiling to reduce unwanted noise call dB Soundproofing London.
