When soundproofing a floor for noise, it is important to establish what is trying to be achieved. There are various solutions for airborne and impact noise problems to suit the different floor finishes in homes or flats such as carpet, laminate, vinyl etc.
Typical issues are:
Footfall noise (thumping when somebody walks above)
Talking or music
Sometimes it is easier to carry out the work from above, although we realise this isn’t always possible, so please go to our page on ceiling soundproofing
