    I live in an apt in brooklyn, new york and unfortunately live under someone who stomps on his floors (meaning my bedroom ceiling) day in and night. I want to soundproof my bedroom ceiling against this noise. I’ve complained to management about this but since learned since I’m a ‘long=time renter” it behooves management to sit on my complaint (hoping I move) rather than do anything about the problem. But I cannot afford to move so here is where I stay. I would like to be put in touch with someone who can soundproof my bedroom or at least be given the name of a company who does it. Thanks!

    I had a similar problem like ‘dj’ in my apartment. After years of me struggling and collecting information on soundproofing, I finally got my wall done with QuietRock and I am so happy . Now I have a noise free room. My neighbors thought for some months that I have left the apartment :) It was only later they found out that I have soundproofed the wall and I am glad I did that.
    Kind of late though but I hope ‘Dj’ you have done something like that.

    Hi Joana,

    Was the QuietRock applied post construction? How did you do it? Any Info will be helpful, thanks!

    Interesting. I did some research on QuietRock and it looks like it can go on over your current drywall! No tear-up needed.

    Kendrick – Check out their site:

    I’m going to have to try them out. Thanks Joana!

    Chris, I just looked at the sight and I do not see where it says you can use it on existing drywall. Can you point me to that section of the website? Thanks!
