Living in a row home between an older couple that has to turn the tv very loud to hear and a bar with a wonderful jukebox that everyone seems to love.....Talk about noisy neighbors. Aside from the fact that the couple frequently falls asleep with the tv on and their bedroom is next to mine, noise is an issue. Built around 1920, the majority of the house is uninsulated with lathe and plaster and i'm looking for options.
I've heard of sound dampening board to layer on top of existing wall, special types of insulation, and systems such as resilient channels or staggered studding.
I'm reaching out to see if anyone has any experience in a row-home environment with making the noise stop. Keep in mind im willing to reframe walls but most likely the electrical in these existing walls is either dredged into the shared brick firewall or has firring strips, im not sure which method.
