1) Martijn VDV: Hello.
Your site is full of wonderful and helpful information.
But one piece of info I can't find.
My situation is. I have a room in the attic. I want to convert this room to a home theater room.
The room consist of the outer wall of the house. An inner wall and the roof.
I know I will need to build a new wall for insulation. I also know I will probably need a floating floor.
What I do not know is how to achieve this. The door to this room is currently on floor level. So raising the floor inside the room will cause issues with the door. How can I solve this?
And on a side note. Do I need to so something with the roof as well? Asking cause this will be difficult to accomplish since the roof is already in a finished state.
I hope you can help.

Hi Martijn. Thank You we appreciate the feedback. If you cannot create the floating floor. You can add a 2nd layer of plywood with Green Glue to the existing sub floor, I am assuming that there is insulation in the floor as it is an attic. Same goes for the roof add another layer with Grenn Glue on there.
2) Barry S: I'm interested in 1lb mass loaded vinyl. If I choose the adhesive-backed product, would that avoid the need for nail or staple fasteners? My application would be an initial 5/8" drywall on the studs, the MLV on the drywall, and a 2nd 1/2" drywall over the MLV. Thanks!
Trademark Soundproofing Reply: Hi Barry. Yes that help you avoid the need to staple to the wall especially if you will be covering it with an additional layer of drywall.
3) Sarah: Any advice you have about soundproofing an existing wall between two therapy offices would be helpful. There are some electrical sockets, and I'm considering spraying foam behind and around the boxes, and then using those insulating pads under the plate. I wish I could use the putty pads, they look perfect, but the wall already exists. If that doesn't help, I'm thinking of blowing insulation into the wall between each set of studs from a hole at the top. Would really appreciate your professional advice.
4) Bernard H: I saw your YouTube presentation on sound proofing a room. In the video there was a quick reference to doing sound damping to what looked like a furnace vent. It looked like you put two strips of something into the vent. What product did you use to do the sound damping and do you sell it? Your video was very informative.

Hi Bernard, That is the 3m Metal Damping Tape and we sell it here.
5) charles m: Hello,
I have a garage that is attached to my home. I am a drummer and made a music room out of it.
I am having issues with my next door neighbor. When the band has a rehearsal, my neighbor complains that they hear the bass drum and the bass guitar in their home on the 1st and 2nd floor. My thought was to build a drum raiser for the drums and bass guitar amp, but I have also notice that you can hear the bass drum and bass guitar low frequencies thru the wall when standing outside. The construction of the garage/music room is standard wood construction with fiber glass insulation in-between the wall and ceiling joists and I put 2 layers of plaster board. We also have a door on the front side of the room. I know that there is some sound leaking at the door. Can you guide me on how I can at least cut down the low frequencies from bothering my neighbor?

6) Rita: I want to soundproof a basement ceiling to stop flow of noise from basement up to the first floor and vice versa. After watching one of your videos my question is how many inches of height will I lose when I use all the items suggested: clips, two layers of drywall etc. Another issue is there is recessed lighting throughout the space, will the soundproofing work with those lights. I have already added rockwool insulation to joists with no discernible difference. Thanks
Amazing customer service and the best price! There are very few companies that can compare with this kind of service! A+!

Have ordered half a dozen times from Trademark Soundproofing with nothing but positive results. Their product performs as promised and their customer service has been excellent. They have accommodated my needs beyond expectations. had one issue with an order that was delivered slightly different than ordered. Trademark shipped out the missing product quickly without cost or questions. Highly recommended.

Fantastic company! Was able to purchase addition product under the minimum volume amount as a continuation of prior order. They apparently understand estimating supplies for soundproofing is sometimes difficult thus it was very nice to be able to add to original order at the same price as the original bulk order pricing. Highly recommend this company.

I've purchased many buckets of goo, hundreds of clips, door seals, and over a hundred panels of fibreglass from Trademark in a dozen transactions during the past two years. TM has been fast, honest, and very good communicators in each transaction. Good prices, too. I always recommend TM to my associates who need acoustic construction materials

I called and placed an order for some pails of Green Glue, applicator and door seals. The person I talked to was very helpful, and even gave me a better price than advertised. I placed the order and my Green Glue pails arrived the next day! A few days later the rest of my shipment arrived. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a great deal and a no hassle purchase.
