Some AW Notes on Knots


Soundproofing Primer 
(Project Link)

     This is general information about soundproofing that you absolutely must know before proceeding to specific soundproofing projects such as the ones that follow...



Soundproofing a Door

(First read the soundproofing primer above)

Acoustical door covers typically cost from around $ 325.00 - $ 450.00 depending on the length and width.  You can make your own for a fraction of the cost (about $ 30 - $ 50) that is effective, stylish, and customized by you using this method. 


Soundproofing a Wall

(Good method for an apartment or office)

Though it looks permanent or built in...

     This is an awesome method of soundproofing a wall that is not a permanent fixture!  Thus, it may be possible to use in an apartment or leased office space.  When you leave, you can take most of the materials with you, and leave little if any damage on the walls, ceiling, or floor.  If you are so paranoid of not getting your security deposit back that you wouldn't even hang pictures on your wall, don't use this method.  But it is probably the only chance you have for effective soundproofing on a tight budget in such leased space situations.


Name Plate
