The dramatic sales to “High Rise” living in Australian cities has created a massive market for Soundproof Flooring.
With Wood Flooring Systems, there are various ways in which Soundproof is achieved.
The most cost effective means of achieving a Soundproof Timber or Wooden Flooring System is to use “approved” “Acoustical Blanket” as the soundproof flooring material which dampens “foot full” noise.
Soundproof Floors is available in both Glue-Down and Floating Floor options. Most Floating Floor options use Prefinished Engineered Wood Flooring due to its unique “stability” especially in “High Humidity” environments.
Glue-Down Timber Soundproof Flooring Systems will often contain a combination of both very dense, recycled rubber products and a Structural Plywood Layer. This is especially where extra wide “solid” Wooden Flooring, in long lengths needs to be both glued and nailed to structural plywood over concrete subfloors.
Clients are encouraged to undertake careful research in the type of Flooring which they may be offered. If it does not achieve Body Corporate requirements, instances have occurred where clients have been ordered to remove non-compliant materials.
Thrust Floors is an organisation that for over 50 years has conducted itself with great integrity by providing our clients with detailed and transparent information. The area of Soundproof Floors is where many clients may be misled. Certainly no installation should proceed in any “High Rise” or Unit Block prior to Body Corporate “approval” having been formally obtained, after detailed transparent documents have been submitted and formal written approval given.
Soundproof Flooring installation effected by competent and skilled trades people can provide significant asset appreciation to the value of the residence.
If you choose a quality Flooring System and you engage recognised craftsmen to install, it will be invaluable that you keep your records for this is what justifies the asset value of your property.
Regrettably, over the years we have seen all sorts of people “conned” into allowing unqualified people to install all manner of products, touted as being Soundproof Flooring Systems. These are often installed without Body Corporate approval and things often go ‘pear shaped’ and can cost people a lot of “wasted” money.
If you are going to install Hardwood or Timber Soundproof Flooring Systems, you are strongly advised to search out a competent company who is well recognised and who has a reputation for doing the right thing.
