Fortunately, there are many ways to make homes quieter today, particularly when building them from the ground up. If you are planning to build a new home, remodel an existing one, or desire more peace, quiet and privacy, fiber glass insulation from CertainTeed will be an efficient and effective option for sound control. Sound control insulation does much more than save energy. Strategically placed, it absorbs sound and helps make your home a quieter place to live.
All fiber glass insulation will contribute to the reduction of unwanted noise transmission. However, most insulation is just placed in the exterior walls and we tend to forget that much of the unwanted noise in the home environment is transmitted from within the home, room to room. NoiseReducer™ , CertainTeed Insulation’s line of sound control insulation batts, is specially manufactured for sound reduction for interior wall applications. Professionally installed OPTIMA® blow-in insulation system is another excellent sound control option for interior wall cavities for both existing walls and new construction or renovation.
