Increasing Structural Mass
Creating a dense structure makes it more difficult for sound vibrations to move through. THERE’S LESS ENERGY TRANSFER THROUGH A STRUCTURE WITH MORE MASS. To increase the mass of your walls, ceilings and floors use DOUBLE LAYERED SHEETROCK, THICKER FRAMING, AND USE HEAVIER, DENSER BUILDING MATERIALS.
Soundproofing means increasing isolation and increasing mass if you seal air leaks dampen vibrations between structural parts and increase the mass of building components you will hear a lot less noise.
