Applying Green Glue is Easy

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

No one should shy away from the possibility of using Green Glue in a soundproofing project. We recommend it even for large projects like those done in hotel renovations. Applying the product to your walls is incredibly easy. We show you just how easy right here:

Soundproofing in the Trump Tower

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

Did you know that the Trump Tower hotels in both Las Vegas and Chicago feature soundproofing on all of their hotel floors? This is incredible news for weary travelers tired of hearing their neighbors and those in the hotel restaurants making noises at all hours of the day.

Trump installed a series of noise abatement products. While we still think they should have used Green Glue noise proofing measures, we’re still glad to see some of the world’s leading hotel chains paying closer attention to the needs of their overnight guests!

Help! The Toilet is Over My Head!

Friday, May 14th, 2010

Here’s a funny question from a reader (ok, it’s not really funny). He found himself in a precarious position. His bedroom is located beneath the house’s main bathroom. He can hear not only the sound of flushing but… well… the sound of the business being done to begin with.

Our suggestion? Forget undoing the plumbing in the bathroom. Simply apply some Green Glue and a second layer of drywall to the ceiling in your bedroom. This will provide a sound absorbing barrier and you should hear much less, if anything at all.

Materials 101: Insulation

Insulation is yet another material that many people look at when they think about soundproofing.

The problem is that the insulation used in the typical construction project really isn’t very good at absorbing or blocking sound. That’s just not what it is designed to do.

You’re better off using the pink insulation for it’s designated purpose – heating and cooling – and focusing on other materials, like Green Glue damping compound, for soundproofing. You’ll end up with much better results.

Materials 101: Sheetrock

Here’s something you may be interested in knowing:

Sheetrock lined with lead makes an excellent sound barrier.

Most lead lined sheetrock had 1/8 inch of #2 lead on the side that faces in towards your studs. It’s great for reducing noise, but there’s a problem.

It’s crazy expensive.

We’re talking anywhere from $125 to $250 per piece. Compare that to the price of some drywall and some extra Green Glue and you’ll see a huge difference right away. It’s not worth the money!

What about Sonex?

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

Sonex Acoustical Panels are one of our favorite soundproofing materials, right after Green Glue, of course. The following video shows just how simple it is to install Sonex panels – and why they’re important for use in a recording studio environment.

Installing Green Glue is Easy!

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

We’ve spoken a lot about Green Glue on this blog, but we know you’re still a bit apprehensive. Today we want to share a short video outlining exactly how easy it is to install a sheet of Green Glue with a new layer of drywall. You won’t believe your eyes!

Is Green Glue Eco-Friendly?

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

One of the most common questions we get about soundproofing materials is whether or nor they are eco-friendly. While we can’t vouch for everything you find on store shelves we can tell you that Green Glue is made by a very earth conscious organization.

The makers of Green Glue put a lot of time and energy into making the safest soundproofing products possible. They’re non-carcinogenic, non-toxic, and are made from the safest chemicals possible. You’ll smell an odor when you use it, but that odor disappears quickly after application. You won’t find a product you feel safer using in your home!
