Building a Quiet Standard of Living Efficient Sound Control
for Multifamily Housing

Wall-to-Wall Acoustic Comfort

Good acoustics and noise control can suggest a higher level of quality to the condo buyer or renter, elevating the perceived value of the property. Sound control is especially important considering the increasing trend toward high-density housing. Including QuietRock in your multifamily projects is a simple and cost-effective way to create a more peaceful and comforting environment for residents. Simply include the sound reducing drywall between units to help decrease the noise transferring from one residence to the other.
