    Evening Gymnastics

    A tenant has asked if we can do anything to better sound proof a wall between the master bedroom and the children's bedroom next door. Its just a plasterboard stud wall. I assume the void's just filled with cavity batts if we are lucky, or loft roll! or nothing. I don't want to do anything expensive but is there a cheap solution that would make a worthwhile difference- drilling and injecting spray foam etc.

    Would appreciate advice.

    Sound it transmitted 2 ways: airborne and through solids by vibration. Check to see if you have Rockwood or similar between the wall timber studs. If not you can easily inject a number of products to improve the situation. To reduce vibration you need to add mass, normally by over- boarding with sound rated plaster board (the blue papered stuff).

    Or just get the tenants to move the bed.

    Does the stud wall have electric wiring in it - switches or soclets on wall - if so I would be very cautious about injecting any foam etc in the wall that may attach to the wiring and possibly cause it to overheat.
