Sound Reduction in Remodel
We are in the early design stages of a remodel to include bumping out our back wall to enlarge the master bedroom and bath. Our neighbors behind are renters and can be noisy, depends on who is renting. I would like to reduce the sound transmission from their property - there is already a mason/cement block wall between us but their property is higher so sound seems to deflect downward into our bedroom window. I understand there is a commonly used solution to install two sheets of drywall with green glue, perhaps with MLV ? to reduce the sound waves that may travel through the wall. I also know I will replace the single pane windows with double pane. Does anyone have any suggestions to improve this ? I may also install the drywall / green glue on the inside walls between the master bedroom and the other rooms if it will improve my serenity / peace of mind not listening to teenagers.
Anyone with similar issue and solution?
