Why acoustic soundproofing under your original pine floorboards is the best solution for noisy neighbours.

Posted on December 31st, 2010 In: Blog, Floor Sanding Services Blogs

Pine floorboards are back in fashion in a big way. More and more people are opting for pine floors as they are undoubtedly a symbol of beauty, elegance and sophistication. The myth about pine floors allowing a lot of noise to filter in is now just a myth.
Acoustic Soundproofing
Earlier, when pine floorboards were used, the gap between the Sanding floorboards was enough to fill the house with a cacophony of noises from the room or house below. Even when laminate floorboard was introduced, the lack of underlay led to the same problem. Even engineered wood seemed to have the exact same problem. But, now the problem is easily solved by using acoustic soundproofing.
What Does It Involve?
Acoustic soundproofing essentially involves installing a layer of underlay between the floorboards and the sub floor. This underlay can range from a 2 mm sheet of foam to a high density padding with proved sound absorption properties. These underlay boards are glued or nailed directly to the sub floor before the pine floorboards are laid. One important thing to remember is that for pine floorboards, you need to choose wood underlay and not carpet underlay.
