Hi please can someone suggest a cheap way of stopping noise going from one level to another.

Was thinking of lining with Rock Wool

Thanks in advance

Hey Phillips,

Unfortunately there is no cheap solution. Soundproofing requires specific construction techniques, such as added mass – multiple layers of sheetrock, concrete walls or floors, etc. Rockwool is merely a thermal insulator, as are other types of insulation such as fiberglass. Staggered stud or "room in a room" construction is another effective construction technique (used with mass) that's great for walls, but difficult to pull off with floors.

Regards,
Wayne
