Title: Improving sound insulation

Ref Code: GR22

Abstract1: BRE inspections of rehabilitation work in progress have revealed instances of inadequate separating walls between dwellings, gaps or absence of walls in roof spaces, and holes alongside floor joists or other timbers built into the walls. The principle of sound insulation is to ensure that the resistance of separating walls is satisfactory by blocking all holes or by constructing an independent leaf. This Guide advises builders, householders and landlords on diagnosing a sound insulation problem and deciding on remedial action. There is also advice on sound insulation for flat conversions.
