Floor Soundproofing

Do you have noisey neighbours downstairs? dB Soundproofing can help reduce sound leaking between floors with a range of sound insulation methods.

Soundproof Your Floors And Reduce Noise From Downstairs

Soundproofing floors for noise is normally for one of two reasons:

  • You are either trying to stop noise reaching you from the property below
  • You’re trying to stop the noise you make affecting your neighbours below

More often than not our floor soundproofing clients require dB Soundproofing to stop sounds from their neighbours below.

How Do We Soundproof Floors?

We can provide many products offering great soundproofing, such as rubber mat or treated underlays, but this normally works in reducing the effects of impact sound such as footsteps or doors. It’s not totally effective in reducing the airborne noise from your neighbours.

dB Soundproofing offer great solutions for reducing the airborne noise from your downstairs neighbours. You can Soundproof a floor for increased noise reduction using acoustic floor insulation between joists to stop airborne sounds. Acoustic insulation for floors will reduce the noise generated by noisy neighbours transferring through floors.
