    Question

    Sign in to disable this ad
    OK.

    I am moving into a house and want to (need to) soundproof the garage. the room has cement walls, wooden roof, wooden door to outside, wooden garage door which leaves about a one inch gap between itself and the wall when closed, and one single paned window. It is a standard 2 car garage, i think about 8m x 5m.

    Obviously, the garage door is the worst part, followed by the window and the roof. I'm hoping I can do something about it though with some combination of sheetrock (Crystal Method's idea), some thick hair underfelt, some acoustic tiles, and some regular insulation/eggcrates. Suggestions or experiences?

    Thanks!!

    If you can manage it, consider the tried and tested "room within a room" concept.

    That is, make from wood, a room smaller than the garage. Insulate and soundproof the area between the rooms.

    Alternatively, consider using some thick carpets - maybe contact a local carpet store.
    Converting a garage is something I'm considering doing too.

    Look closely at your security

    pink insulation

    i worked at a construction company and we had to soundproof meeting rooms. If you got some time and cash and are handy then i suggest this. You steel frame a smaller room, about a foot outside the original, and then fill the gap with pink insulation making sure not to crunch it up to fit it in (my mistake which makes it loose all its soundproofing power). then drywall the inside of the frames and you got yourself a sweet looking studio.
