The flats are separated by the original bannister and plasterboard. I have had several quotes, one which will reduce the size of the hallway (which I am not bothered about) from a sound proofing firm and another from a builder who says he will be using slightly more expensive material, but will not reduce the hall. The prices are similar and I am not worried about a smaller hall. My question is which one will give me the best outcome. I have had work done by the sound proofing company and the building company and both are trust worthy and good at their jobs.
Proposal for attached acoustic lining system to the hall wall. To remove the skirting board and dismantle the existing plasterboard face of the hall wall. To remove the front door and door lining and narrow the door opening. To cut down the front door for new size and rehang. To cut to size and friction fit a 45 Kg insulation slab to the exposed framework. To install a system of resilient bars set horizontally over the wall plane at 450 mm centres. To install a primary layer of 19 mm plasterboard plank secured to the resilient bar system. To seal perimeters and butted joints of plasterboard to airtight. To install secondary layer of 12.5 mm fireline plasterboard secured through to resilient bar. To tape plasterboard joints and apply plaster skim coat to the walls. To refit the skirting and door architrave. To remove all debris from site. and hole way wall striping the current wall down, building a stud wall frame with 75mm timber, will install 50mm think hight density rock wool then we will dress the walls with soundproofing acoustic plasterboard, we will tape joint the plasterboard joints and fill them, and paint the walls the current door will stay as it is and the wall will be coming out exactly as much as it currently is, but we will have to strip it out in order to rebuild, 1.00 1,650.00 20% 1,650.00 02 acoustic plaster board sheets 15mm think, rock-wool sheets 50mm thick high density acoustic,screws,filler tape joints, paint 1.00 560.00 20% 560.00 04 Rubbish collection and disposal of rubbish.
