Hey guys, I've posted on here once before about this question but I didn't have a understanding on the subject at all. So my first question is my garage has 3 brick concrete walls, a tin roof laying over wooden pillars & an open door next to the last wall which is made of tin & has an old window. I was wondering if I went out and fully sound proofed this garage would there even be a point because all the weak spots with the tin? & also I don't understand everything I'll need. What are the use of some of the clips, like Whisper clips, also what are the rubber pads used to separate the second flooring? & it's abit of a discussion on what insulation does actually sound proof so that would be useful to know as well. Where should i start studing first? & how do i know if cut the right size studs? just by measuring? thankyou for your time smile.gif

everything you need to know about soundproofing is in the library of articles at Soundproofingcompany.com

get yourself into a public library and spend some time reading books about residential home construction. You need to fix that dilapidated shed garage before investing on the inside sound proofing.

and read everything I said in your other thread again.

Also read up on "room within a room" construction - might be a better option if you don't plan on changing out some of the outer shell elements you mentioned, like the tin roof.

You First order of business is to build a basic four wall structure with a sound roof. You have 3 walls the rest is trash based on your previously posted video. Tear down the tin wall and build a solid wall with a hefty door, doesn't have to be brick.

Then tear off the flat tin roof and replace with a code compliant roof for your region. This might involve adding roof trusses adding pitch to the roof, then sheathing, roofing felt and shingles.
