Soundproofing Floors

The Soundproofing Company offers a variety of high-performance solutions for soundproofing floors in homes, condos, commercial spaces, home theaters, recording studios and more. Check out our case studies to see a few of the ways we've helped our customers achieve the results they need.

If you are serious about a floor that performs at the highest level, then install two layers of plywood with Green Glue in between and 3/8" Serena™ Underlay to create a floated floor system.

  • Highest performance isolation
  • Less expensive, better-wearing than poured gypsum
  • Effective for both footfall impact and airborne noise
  • Suitable for hardwood, tile, stone, and vinyl
  • Requires no flooring adhesive
  • Requires the most space

Although this is not truly a decoupled floor system, you'll find this is the next best thing. Glue down the Serena Mat® to the original subfloor, which could be a slab or wood frame. Then glue down a layer of 3/4" Tongue and Groove OSB.

  • High-quality solution when a true decoupled floor isn't an option
  • Requires less space
  • Suitable for hardwoods or vinyl
  • Requires two layers of flooring adhesive
  • Not a true vibrationally damped system

Adding Serena Underlay to your floor assembly will increase your floor's performance by 21-23 dB. This performance gain outperforms other underlayments due to our tested, proprietary, three-rubber blend formula.

Please note that this solution is meant to demonstrate the lowest performance possible and is not recommended for use as a ceiling drywall decoupling layer. Level 2 or Level 3 Floor Solution is much preferred for performance over Level 1.

Additional Floor Assemblies

Soundproofing Carpeted Floors

Typically used in residences, especially for home theaters; recording studios, restaurants, bars, and more. Mass and decoupling are used to combat low-frequency sounds.

Soundproofing Tile & Stone Floors

Tile and stone floors are used in every kind of flooring application. Dampen noise by creating a second subfloor with Serena Mat Underlay, Green Glue and tongue, and groove plywood.

Soundproofing floors and ceilings together

Neighbor noise can have a seriously negative impact on your quality of life, just as noise from your home theater can ruin it for others. If you need sound isolation both above and below, addressing floors and ceilings at the same time offers optimum efficiency and results.
