Your solution is driven by the ability to access the floor to conduct building work and the source of noise that is disturbing you.
If you are being disturbed by people walking around upstairs then the easiest solution is to treat the walking surface and this could be as simple as laying down a carpet on a high quality underlay. If the upper room has hard wood flooring then always give this a try before conducting disruptive building work.
If you are being disturbed by noises such as TV, music and conversation then a carpet will not solve your problem and you should consider one of the treatments outlined in this section.
The floor can be treated from above or below depending on your access possibilities and how much disruption you are happy with.
The solutions presented below are advisory, however our expert installers will determine the most suitable treatment for you.
For situations where you have access from above. A low profile 7mm floating floor system is ideal when you cannot afford to lose height from your rooms. This system requires lifting the walking surface, installing the floor components over the joists and then re-laying a new walking surface. The system works by isolating the walking surface from the floor structure and by adding mass to the walking surface.
Once you’ve made contact with your chosen independent installer, they will arrange a convenient time to visit you at home and assess your sound issues. They will then be able to recommend the best solution available for your home and give you a quotation.
