Soundproofing While Remodeling

October 17, 2019

Everyone has different ideas about home renovation. Some people do one room at a time, while others go in for whole-home renovation. Some put off remodeling as long as possible, while others jump at the opportunity to give their home a brand-new look.

Why Soundproofing and Remodeling Go Together

Whatever your remodeling plans are, may we suggest adding soundproofing insulation to the equation? There are a number of great reasons to soundproof while you remodel. These include:

  • The excuse you’ve been waiting for. A lot of people want soundproofing insulation in their home but they don’t know where to begin. Most homes can benefit from soundproofing. Soundproofing protects your family from noise pollution, allows more clear communication between family members, helps you get better sleep and helps keep babies’ rooms quiet. However, if you do need an excuse to add soundproofing, remodeling is the perfect one!
  • Soundproofing areas are already exposed. Another reason why you may have put off adding soundproofing is that you may feel like it will be a hassle to install. The truth is, Soundproof Cow soundproofing products are actually quite easy to install. And if you’re in the midst of a remodel, it’s even easier! You may have already torn up flooring or knocked down walls, which means you can slip the appropriate soundproofing product right in with almost no extra work!
  • Minimize home disruptions. You don’t want to make a mess out of your home and disrupt the family’s comings and goings for a month while completing your renovation, then do the whole thing again when you’re ready to add soundproofing. Why not get it all done in one shot and minimize the upheaval?
