Hi Im getting a bedroom done next week, actually, after years of thinking about it.
Ive looked through old posts and studied other sites specifically on sound proofing.
From what I can gather, if done incorrectly you can actually worsen the problem.
Now this is a job I wouldnt even consider doing myself so I was looking for someone I could trust.
I finally went with a guy who is an acoustic consultant and has 15years experience in surveying, fire protection and sound.
I came across acoustifire on pick a pro as well. There were only two companies on that site doing soundproofing, both sounded good and I contacted both of them.
The other company took my number but did not phone me back on the night they said they would. I rang again the following day and was given a mobile number which wasnt answered and no on phoned me that night either.
When I rang acoustifire the owner of the company answered the phone and arranged to come out and have a look at the room and discuss what could be done, not only that he arrived on time.
I think that kind of attention is a sign of someone who means to do a good job.
The guy really sounded like he knew his stuff and the materials he is using appear to be first class.
Its a bit pricey though and they are charging me a bit extra for having to take down a built in wardrobe and putting it back up again. Its going to cost 1562. They have promised to have it all over in a day, which is brilliant and they are very discreet. The last thing you want is neighbours turning up their volume because you have paid for soundproofing. The rubbish is going to be left in bags which is hassle to get removed. I know its hassle for them too but it would be a nice finish to a job wouldnt it.
Cant say how it will turn out and I hope I have made the right decision.
I will post on this next week and keep you all informed. Fingers crossed.
