Hello,

Which material is the best for soundproofing a room? Is it best to use both sound absorbing and soundproofing material? My neighbor likes to play with his construction equipment, so I need strong materials. Thank you!

Sorry to hear about your neighbor. Unfortunately, many of us can relate! This is a complicated issue as it depends in part by what sorts of sounds you are trying to dampen and how well your walls are insulated. I find that windows are often a big culprit. We had special sound reducing windows put in our prior home. They had multiple panes of different thickness that were designed to resonate differently to sound causing it to dissipate. Also ensuring a good seal around the windows is important too. If you haven’t insulated your walls,, that would be something to consider. Sometimes, for the lower-end bass, construction, and engine noises, there’s almost nothing you can do, as they make the whole house vibrate. Best of luck finding something helpful.
