Before learning how to soundproof a ceiling it’s worth considering if soundproofing the floor above is an option. Generally, it’s simpler and lower cost to mitigate the sound at its source. If floor soundproofing is not an option you’ll be glad to hear that ceiling soundproofing can provide a very high level of soundproofing. What steps does it take to soundproof a ceiling?

  1. Remove plasterboard from the existing ceiling.
  2. Install high-density acoustic mineral wool between the joists.
  3. At this point, you can install MuteBoard 2 direct on the joists to deal with low-level noise issues.
  4. For the highest-performing systems, you will want to install MuteClip to your joists.
  5. Run MuteClip Channels through your clips to create an isolated metal frame.
  6. Attach your final finish to this frame, This can be a single layer or acoustic plasterboard and a build of different acoustic materials.
  7. Tape and joint or skim ready for decoration.

Based on the level of performance you need the material cost for soundproofing a wooden floor can range between £25-£120 per meter squared.

If you have low-level impact noise and airborne noise a low-cost acoustic underlay may deliver the results you need. If you have a high-level noise issue you may need a more advanced system.
