Noisy neighbours + soundproofing


Recommended Posts

Hi there


As many of the housing in ED is Victorian lots of us suffer from each others' noise through walls/ceilings. 

In my case the ground floor flat I live in has very bad insulation from noise from footsteps, voices/shouting and running up and down staircases.

Has anyone attempted to use soundproofing solutions (i.e. acoustic panels or similar) specifically for cushioning noise coming through ceilings? 

Or can anyone recommend a specialist? 

Thanks in advance!

Hi I’ve done sound insulation between my neighbour on a party wall. It’s not 100%, but huge difference. Doing ceilings is a much more challenging piece of work. There’s a great video in attached link on how to achieve this https://www.soundproofingstore.co.uk/ceilings?gad_source=1&gclid=Cj0KCQiAh8OtBhCQARIsAIkWb6-sTFWJ7Qu698ObcGxfLzdT08BcKH0ZE7GxEnSR3FrT9MeX71CoP1saAltfEALw_wcB

How did you do the insulation on the party wall? I'd be interested in this.

I'd check your lease (if you own your flat). Quite often there are clauses regarding the use of carpet in upstairs flats. Might help you.

This is the best bet, but could make for a difficult conversation. Noise reducing plasterboard is an expensive waste of time and energy, tried it and could still wish a “bless you” when our neighbours sneezed at night, let alone the other occasional sounds. 🙈
