Sounds proofing outlets... this person doesn't know what he is doing??
I live in a condo. My unit is an end unit and on the 2nd floor which means there are no units above me. It used to be piece and quite where I live but recently a new RUDE/LOUD neighbor moved in next to me and after calling security etc the noise continues.
I'm flipping this condo so keeping COST low is a huge issue but I must "sound proof" this wall for my sanity. I have to live in this condo for at least another year or two... I called quietrock and they referred me to a company who just sent out a guy to give me an estimate to install quietrock or 2 5/8 sheetrock with green glue.... after researching I'm still confused which of the two options would be best. I have concrete walls but TONS of noise comes through it!
I have 7 outlets on the wall. The guy they just sent out to my condo had NO IDEA sound can easily travel through outlets (that's a red flag!!). He then said there is NOTHING that can be done to "sound proof" my 7 outlets because he "can't access the electrical boxes" since my neighbor's unit is on the other side of the wall that needs to be sound proofed he said... so his plan for my outlets is to do NOTHING. I then found out you can easily buy gaskets that fills the gaps between the cover plate if you are in situation where you can't have access to BOTH sides of the electrical box.... is this good enough??
It seems I should NOT hire this person because they don't appear to know what on earth they are doing?? I reside in Palm Beach, FL and having trouble finding knowledgeable person for this!
Thanks for any advice!
