Soundproofing Ceilings

The Soundproofing Company offers a variety of high quality solutions for soundproofing ceilings. This type of soundproofing is especially useful for home theaters and recording studios, as well as to eliminate noise from the people upstairs. Check out our case studies to see how we've helped our customers achieve the results they need.

  • Best for footfall noise from above
  • Treats both subfloor above and ceiling below

Level 2 (standard)

  • Best when there is NO footfall noise from above

Additional ceiling soundproofing resources

Standard – Ceiling Assembly (Single Drywall)

Comments Off on Standard – Ceiling Assembly (Single Drywall)

This assembly will allow sound to easily transfer from floor to ceiling with out encountering any real resistance. It’s not recommended, but included for the sake of demonstration.

Green Glue added to a ceiling

Comments Off on Green Glue added to a ceiling

Our customers choose this solution most often. It doesn’t address vibration in the subfloor and joists overhead, but it does create more thoroughly damped mass than in the original ceiling.

Concrete Slab Soundproof Ceiling

Comments Off on Concrete Slab Soundproof Ceiling

A single layer of concrete poses a unique challenge for sound isolation. You really only have two choices.

Adding Drywall to Standard Ceiling Assembly

Comments Off on Adding Drywall to Standard Ceiling Assembly

The standard ceiling upgrade is a basic improvement. It does not reduce the vibration from the upstairs floor. More effective for airborne than impact noise.
