We were recently contacted by a customer who shared a common wall with a loud neighbor and needed an effective and permanent solution/resolution. Dealing with existing infrastructure, especially in a condominium, can be difficult due to not seeing or knowing how the units are constructed and the multiple paths that noise can travel through.
Sound Proof Atlanta attacked the noise issue with our arsenal of soundproofing solutions, since there is no one-size-fits-all noise fix. In this case, the solution had to be layered with different acoustical products to create mass and distance from the main source of noise on the other side of the wall, as well as, absorption and blocking properties. So the picture reflects only the visual attractive fabric part of “sound proofing” not the real noise busters behind the wall.
Here's what our customer had to say about his experience:
"When my next door neighbor installed a television and soundbar on the other side of our shared living room wall, my apartment became basically unlivable. I could hear his music in my living room as if there was no wall at all, at absurd dance-club like volumes. Rather than getting into a prolonged dispute with him, I decided to hire Sound Proof Atlanta to hopefully solve the problem. It turns out there was practically no insulation in the wall. It was definitely not to code. Sound Proof Atlanta removed the dry wall and set about filling it with rock wool and mass vinyl, and built an enclosure around the problem area behind the TV. They completely rebuilt the wall to be fireproof and soundproof, but it still wasn’t quite enough to deal with the insane volumes coming from just the other side, so they also added foam paneling and acoustical cloth to the wall. The work was done quickly and efficiently in the time estimated, and the workers were as amiable as they were professional." ~ Jens in Atlanta
