We need some help with choosing a soundproofing system that would be suitable to our problem. We live in a 1930s mid terraced and the neighbours on one side are loud with their TV, talking and shouting, loud music and children. Tried other things but nothing works - only solution is to soundproof. Noise comes through lounge and Front bedroom (worst of noise) and back bedroom (TV/radio and talking). Sound coming through the walls.
I have searched on loads of websites and it's a mine field as to which system is going to work.
1) Do I install the system that sticks straight to the wall with only a 2inch loss - how do I know this will be enough
2) I've read that having a stud wall is better as there is a gap between the adjoining and stud wall, but there are so many materials that can be bought and the cost is running away with me.
I was looking to build stud wall, insert acoustic mineral wool in between batons, fit acoustic resiliant bars across top and bottom, attach one layer pasterboard and mastic seal edges, fit shock membrane over plasterboard and finally, second layer of plasterboard offset against the first.
Is this overkill for noisy neighbours?
I'm also stuck with which company to go with as each have their own slightly different systems? Can I not just buy the products separately or do I have to buy the full system from one particular company? If the latter, do you have any recommendations of companies that are good on price?
Any help would be greatly appreciated as we've put up with this for nearly 3 years now and it's driving me insane!!
