Does anyone have any suggestion re: soundproofing a common wall? We have put soundboard and drywall over the existing common wall to no avail! Help!
Sound vibrations tend to travel through solid objects. Insulating sound board can help some, but building a separate, free standing wall(unattached to existing wall) offers the best in non-transfer of sound. And of course insulating that too.
Sound can also enter through attic space above or basement crawl space below this wall. No real easy fixes. Sometimes a white noise generator is the easiest and least expensive way to muffle unwanted sound.
We had our house resided with wonderful siding. It has insulation properties. We rarely hear anything outside our house now.
I used to think my hub like having the ceiling fan for white noise. Wrong...he just likes the air circulating.
Siding with exterior insulation properties is and would be good is SO many ways!
Assuming OP's question about "a common wall" refers to an apartment, duplex, attached townhome or such...so exterior siding would not be a solution here.
