I am being kept up all night from tenant directly underneath my flat. She is up crashing and banging about all through the night for one reason or another. All I want is to be able to sleep at night for my kids and myself. Done all the research about 4 essentials of SP etc etc. Need practical advice on reducing noise entering my bedroom?? PLEASE HELP

 

ps - I am on a budget.. I am exhausted with researching, really need get this room done.. I am considering murder!

Ceiling/floor noise transfer is tough and expensive to resolve.

Not much you can do other than earplugs or something to try and mask the noise.

honest answer is start planning to move if complaints haven't gotten you anywhere.


You aren't likely going to fix this issue without spending more money than it's worth.


Call soundproofingcompany.com but don't think you will love the answers.

They have to be violating their lease, talk to your landlord first and foremost.

Mdf then or mass? Sure I've read this procedure in the pages of websites I've had to troll through.

Yea of course, but it's a council property, and they rarely evict tenants. They basically couldn't give a **** unless it's effecting them.

Surprises me. Thought a room would be quite easy. Drywall and gg. All that I've read says throw this product up and bingo. So nothing I can do then for a reasonable budget?

Out of the question moving. Taken me 7 years to get to my village to be near my kids. I will have to wait years to move here again! Need sound proof somehow.

Wish I'd never asked. So depressed with it all. How hard can it be to stop or reduce this wretched woman's noise?!

I can assure you that calling people names especially Ted is not going to get you anywhere around here and frankly I have no desire to even reply to you.


I think you need to face the reality of this and you can't just add some mass to your floor and have it magically fixed. Ted was likely just being honest with you and the reality of it.

I'm from London, that's just a way of saying guy or fella. No disrespect intended.

Just said I needed to find somebody closer to where I live. Ted's name appeared everywhere on forums, that's why I asked for his help.

Sounds like you're from Great Britain..............I have empathy for you dealing with local counsel.

 

After watching/seeing building practices from flats and residential private homes.....I'm vaguely familiar with building practices there.  If you are on top floor, you're going to have one heck of a time overcoming issue.......

 

What type of construction?  Brick and mortar.......stick frame.......caste concrete?
