Looking for a little peace and quiet? The combination of today's open-plan homes, lightweight construction methods, appliances, and high-tech gear has made many of our homes less than peaceful. Fortunately, there are materials and techniques that can help you mitigate the noise. This section of HomeTips will help you sort through your options.

Soundproofing Made Simple
Soundproofing a room without spending big bucks is possible. You do not need to make sound proofing your walls a big and expensive project.

Sound proofing your home, recording studio or garage can be a huge chore. You can spend thousands of dollars very easily. Only if you are doing a serious recording studio would you likely need to do more than this for the walls. Now, realize please that your windows are your worst problem. If you soundproof your walls and do not apply soundproof windows to your windows, you will be wasting the money on the walls. If you do not totally understand that, then please read the other pages on our web-site and take our short soundproofing courses.
