We are finishing our attic in a ~3 year old house (full walk up to about 550 square feet of usable space), and I'm really concerned about noise coming back through to the bedrooms.
It currently has just 1/2" plywood subfloor, so we're going to put another 1/2" on top of it, followed by a good pad and carpet.
But, in wondering what more I could do, I found a few places that recommended using a cork layer in there somewhere and that it was very effective at deadening both impact noise (footsteps) and other noise (voices, music, etc).
So, anyone have any opinions on this?
I could either put it between the two layers of subfloor, or on top of the second layer, or I could use something else, or skip it altogether.
thanks in advance!
