Carpet Silencing - November 2nd 2004


Carpet Silencing

Dear Shell,

I am replacing the carpet in my tenants apartment. Is there something I can do to prepare the floor before carpeting that will lessen the "thud thud" for the tenants that live in the suite below?

Dear Martin,

Apply a cork underlay over top of the sub-floor before putting down the under pad and carpet. This will form a barrier to stop the sound transfer.

It's Just That Easy!
