How to Apply Green Glue

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Does the thought of applying Green Glue to your walls make you a little nervous? In this video we’ll show you exactly how easy it is to apply the product. There’s really nothing to it at all. Soundproofing has never been this easy. Check it out for yourself!

Row Home Party Wall Soundproofing

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

We’re always reading and we came across another great account of a guy who suddenly found the need to soundproof the party wall between his townhouse and his neighbor’s. The house was 100 years old but he was surprised to find old horse-hair plaster between their homes when he began gutting his side of the wall.

So what should he do?

No one wants to damage the integrity of a 100 year old home. We’d recommend considering Green Glue noise proofing, adding some new drywall, installing a layer of the damping compound, and installing a second layer of drywall on top of the first. This method will take care of the sound problems the old construction was causing, is cost effective, and will certainly restore peace amongst the neighbors.

Waiting for the Imperial

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

It’s a story we’ve heard time and time again:

The Imperial will be reopening soon.

Yea. Right.

Apparently the owner of the Imperial Hotel, Shadd Danesi, claims the hotspot will be reopening soon. He says he’s trying to make sure his soundproofing is perfect so as not to disturb neighbors.

The story is getting old.

He needs to get some Green Glue, get the job done, and reopen.

Perhaps before all of the club’s fans find another place to party.

Soundproofing Materials: Windows

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Yup, in the world of soundproofing, windows can be (and are) considered a major problem. The misconception occurs when those who are uneducated run out and try to solve their soundproofing problems by replacing all of their windows.

Yes, windows are a major source of noise. No, replacing them with “soundproof” glass doesn’t usually work. In the end, adding a second pane of glass over the one that already exists, creating a 1-inch gap in between, is more effective.

Sadly, you can’t use Green Glue on the windows themselves. Otherwise, we’d be creating our own windows!

Soundproofing in Apartments

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Not long ago we came across an intresting question. A landlord in an apartment complex wanted to know if he was allowed to go in and soundproof an occupied apartment.

The answer here is simple. Check your lease and you’ll see that you (or your lawyers) probably included information that grants you access as long as you give your tenants ample notice. We’d start with the apartments of the tenants who are complaining – as they’re most likely to welcome you graciously – before moving on to the tenant causing the problem (if you even have to). With a little Green Glue and some extra drywall, your sound problems will be fixed in no time flat!

Soundproofing against Games

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

As silly as it sounds, gaming is a very serious cause of concern amongst parents. Not just because their kids spend too much time playing, but because they make so much noise while they’re doing it.

Are your kids a little loud when they get excited about their video games? If so, consider soundproofing the bedroom or game room so that you’re not as disturbed while they’re in action. With a little Green Glue and some paint, you’ll have the job done in no time flat!

Green Glue is Eco-Friendly

The other day we stumbled upon an article about a line of soundproofing products claiming to be eco-friendly. While we can’t vouch for the products or the validity of the writer’s claims, we thought we might take a moment to remind you that Green Glue and all of the associated Green Glue products are eco-friendly as well.

The Green Glue company uses the least hazardous chemicals possible in the creation of their products. They’re non-toxic and non-carcinogenic, ensuring you are healthy and safe while using them as well. You can safely add Green Glue to your list of earth friendly soundproofing materials – guaranteed!

Monday, August 10th, 2009

On July 30th, The Green Glue Company based out of Fargo, North Dakota announced the release of their newest soundproofing system. Now, instead of relying on the Green Glue damping compound alone, professional and amateur soundproofers will have the opportunity to purchase a complete four-part package that includes all of the soundproofing materials one could possibly need.

The new kit includes Green Glue noiseproofing compound, Green Glue acoustical sealant, whisper clips, and joist tape. These four tools, when used together, will give users the opportunity to complete the best soundproofing possible – missing nothing when it comes to empty space of places where noise can escape a room.
