How much does it cost?
Each job varies so we will visit you personally, appraise the job and provide you with a quote typically within 48hrs.
How well does it work?
If the product is installed correctly the results are outstanding and significantly reduces noise.
How long does it take to install?
This largely depends on the size of the installation wall(s) or area, e.g. for a 3m x 3m wall with no cornice / coving / sockets /skirting board etc. installation would take approximately 3 days for 2 people:
Day 1 – installing the sound insulation
Day 2 – installing the plasterboard & plaster
Day 3 – painting the wall
How much space do you lose?
The acoustic membrane comes in a number of thicknesses 25mm / 40mm / 65mm / 80mm. If you use the most common 40mm insulation plus 12.5mm of plasterboard you lose a total of 52.5 – 55mm of room space.
How long does in last?
The installation is permanent.
How much mess does it make?
The installation process is fairly clean however the contact adhesive we use creates a lot of fumes, therefore the room should not be occupied for 24-48 hours during or after installation.
Do we need permission?
Property owners within Barcelona city centre should obtain ‘Permiso de obras menores’ which can be sourced very quickly online, the main importance of this is to inform neighbours that minor works are taking place and to expect to see builders hauling materials etc.. The installation process is in no way structural meaning houses / apartments outside the city require no permissions.
Can you soundproof an entire room?
Yes. Ceiling & floor installations are more time consuming and will require additional material thus increasing the overall price & time scale.
What about fixtures & fittings?
All fixtures and fittings can be replicated i.e cornice / skirting / sockets etc. The idea is to finish with a wall that looks no different from the original!
How stable is the new wall?
After installation the wall is 100% solid but it is highly recommended that no holes are drilled into the material as this will potentially degrade the performance of the sound insulation.
