Greetings fellow Lumberjocks,
I am in the beginning stages of covering walls/ceiling of my basement workshop. Our master bedroom/bath is directly over the shop so every little noise that I make goes straight to the top floor! I am not looking to block everything out or go really overboard. I just want to make a decent attempt at stopping the high pitched planer router noises.
I had hopes of installing soundboard (fiber board type 4’x8’ sheeting) directly to the overhead ceiling joist and covering with a finising material such as corrogated roofing or drywall. Apparently Lowe’s and Home Depot do not carry the stuff. I’m pretty sure that they used to (based on some random blogs/forums that google found) however all the local stores around Atlanta act like they have never heard of the stuff.
Does anyone else have a good alternative? I thought that maybe the foam insulation board would help to isolate the finished drywall/roofing????? I also ran across some stuff called “green glue” (www.greengluecompany.com) that looks really intersting, but it’s nearly $300 for a 5 gallon bucket. I wouldn’t mind paying that if I knew that it would work.
Thanks for any suggestions
