Being a city dweller, I can tell you how much fun it is to live with urban noise—especially when your next door neighbor is an aspiring musician. I love music but after four months of my neighbor struggling to master the opening lines to “Satisfaction,” I’m not looking forward to repeating the experience. Enter Acoustiblok of Tampa, with soundproofing materials that can be installed in walls, ceilings, and floors to quiet any enclosed space, from condos to hospitals. Their website details installation with various stud types, carpeting, hardwood flooring, and ceiling styles. It is so easy to install that you don’t need special training, tools, or construction changes. Without using harmful lead or asbestos, the material Acoustiblok uses is so dense that each layer can reduce sound by up to 30 decibels—the sonic difference between a power saw (110 dB) and a telephone dial tone(80 dB). Music to my ears. Can I have two layers please? Pricing varies but give them a call and they can put you in touch with a contractor or distributor in your area.
