Tips for Soundproofing Walls from Noisy Neighbours

  • Try talking to your neighbours first. Your neighbours might not be aware of how noisy they are being or how easily you can hear them.
  • Don’t just soundproof the party wall.
  • Get a solid core door.
  • Consider you might lose some room space.

What time do neighbors have to be quiet?

Most local noise ordinances designate “quiet hours”–for example, from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. on weekdays and until 8 or 9 a.m. on weekends. So running a power mower may be perfectly acceptable at 10 a.m. on Saturday, but not at 7 a.m. Some universally disturbing sounds are commonly banned or restricted.
